This Is It

This Is It is amazing. If you're on vacation and you want to watch something entertaining and truly heart felt...this is it! Michael is a genius, & icon in so many ways. This practice was enduring and really made you think, if Michael at 50 could work so hard, why then do so many entertainers lack energy when they're performing..AMA's this year is just one example? Check that out for yourself if you missed it.

One of my favorite moments
is Criminal and Billie Jean which happens to be one of the last songs he performs. These two segments really showcase him and his loving heart. After watching this I realize what an extraordinary person Mike was and how mankind lost a valuable assest and caring person. And on another note, I advice entertainers & professionals in any field to watch this movie and have wishful hopes to work at his level. I encourage myself and others to step your work ethic up and go after whatever it is that you want in life. Good luck & God bless King Michael and his family. Everybody enjoy this vacay, then its back to work.

Stay Grounded & In Touch

There are a number of things we do daily but sometimes finding time to stay grounded is difficult. However, it is more evident than ever that we need to take time to tell the people who mean the most to us that we care. We need to take time for pampering and most important take time for oneself. Even if we're in a recession there are still things that bring our heads out of the clouds and grounded back on earth. Check out the list of things we all should consider that may help with self-confidence or for those 'just because' moments!

1. Get the brows: threaded (my fav), waxed or tweezed. This will boost your confidence immediately

2. When was the last time you wrote a letter to a friend or family member? Send out holiday cards or JB cards. Writing a letter can be therapeutic and a form of expression...get with it!

3. Cook dinner for someone other than yourself, who cares, cook for two. Just take time to make something good, even if your not a top notch chef.

4. Set some goals for yourself, yearly, monthly, daily, etc.

5. Try something new: rock climbing, ice skating, dinner @ a new restaurant, shop at a new store, try Twitter, polish your nails a different color, learn another language, paint, whatever you do just get to it!

Even if none of the suggestions sound like something you would want to do give it a try. Good Luck!

I Can't Believe Brittany Murphy is Gone

It came without notice. Brittany blessed us all with her contagious smile in Clueless. She has appeared in countless movies. Her charm has captivated us all. It's easy to adore the bubbly star and today we had to say good bye because she is no longer with us. She died this morning from cardiac arrest in her Los Angeles home. It's very sad to say good bye but, she will be missed.
