  • Giving Hope with Tara & Nadia from Rocchetti's Beauty Salon

    Posted on January 24, 2016 by Wendy

    I met Tara & Nadia a few years ago and each time I met with them I always
    left feeling better than when I got there.

    These 2 ladies give the true essence of HOPE, which is what Fabulous, Fit
    & Fantastic Living is all about. I knew we were destined to meet each other for
    a reason and a lesson.

    They spend their day helping women & men who have to deal with hair loss
    from sickness, disease and mainly cancer. Their salon is an open door
    to share your feelings and fears about what you are going through
    and what it's like to be losing your hair.

    They listen with open hearts and give you advice on how to make
    your journey a wee bit better and how to feel Fabulous about yourself
    along the way.

    It's definitely worth booking a personal consultation with Tara & Nadia

    Remember through it all.... Always Be Fabulous!

    Luv Wendy

  • Be Authentic, Be Original, Be Fabulous!

    Posted on January 9, 2016 by Wendy

    Excellent video from Pennington's that was published Jan 3, 2015 with a fabulous message.
    I love it! A must share!!

    Body confidence and self-acceptance are topics that have grown in popularity over recent years.
    Why? The fact of the matter is that our world is still filled with stigma, stereotypes and unrealistic expectations.
    It’s time to reclaim power from a society that thinks we should look or act a certain way based on our appearance.
    Instead of trying to change ourselves to fit an arbitrary standard, let’s change perceptions.
    As advocates for body diversity and size acceptance, Pennington's want to work with you to create
    a new convention: that beauty, strength, and confidence come in different sizes, shapes, and heights.

    #iwontcompromise is a movement that celebrates doing what we love, wearing what makes us feel good,
    and being who we are without compromise. No limits, no fears, no judgments, just pure enjoyment.
    When we hold ourselves back in fear of how we may be perceived, society misses out.
    Let them stare. Let them see what we can do. Let’s inspire them together.

    Join the conversation and share your story!

  • What if Cinderella had swollen feet

    Posted on January 4, 2016 by Wendy

    Happy New Year everyone.

    I hope you had a good holidays and got some rest from the hustle and bustle.
    The holidays can be very stressful and many of us feel the need to eat comfort food to release
    that stress or our grandmothers say eat, eat, eat.

    I know many people set goals to lose weight and most of the goals unfortunately don't get accomplished.
    The reason being is that we set the goal because we allow what other people think to affect our New Years Resolutions.
    I am constantly telling people to learn how to get to their "natural state of weight" and the
    fad diets and yo you diets will disappear.

    I love this article from Lisa Berry. I couldn't find it on her website however I read this on LinkedIn.
    All credit goes to Lisa for this http://www.datingyourdiet.ca/

    What If Cinderella had swollen feet??

    We all know that the glass slipper fit. We all know that Cinderella lived happily ever after.
    BUT what if on the very special day when the ministers came by the house for the girls to try on
    the glass slipper Cinderella’s feet were swollen? What if she stuffed her emotions down with food
    and hid from all her feelings of low self worth, not fitting in, feeling depressed with her living conditions,
    never getting ahead in life? What if bags of potatoes chips, muffins, pasta, and cookies were her answers.
    What if chocolate covered avoidance was her go to response?

    I’ll share with you what would have happened. The glass slipper would never have fit and Cinderella would
    have been left sitting there in the beautiful embroidered Victorian chair with her big old swollen water retention
    foot and no prince and no happily ever after.

    Imagine just for a moment that your life long dream, a once in a lifetime opportunity literally came to YOU,
    right to your door, and you weren’t prepared? What if the decisions you were making, the actions you were taking
    were ruining your chance for success? Holding you back from fitting in the exact life that you’d been dreaming of and were trying to create.
    Imagine if your life was swollen and didn’t fit into your life’s magical glass slipper?

    I remember when the word “success” was defined to me. When I heard it, everything just clicked.

    “Success is when preparation meets opportunity”

    What does a successful life look like to you?
    What is your fairy tale life?
    Are you prepared to slide into it like a glass slipper when it shows up?
    When the opportunity presents itself to you?
    Do you have the mindset that will motivate you into taking actions that propel you into your success?
    Are you aware of the power and control you have in your very own life that puts you in the driver seat to choose
    what foods you eat, what activities you participate in, what attitude you possess, what language you speak?
    Do you realize that it is you who chooses the people in your life? Are you allowing wicked step-sisters and mothers
    to dictate your daily activities, negative and hurtful emotions?

    Choice is like a fairy godmother. The choices you make are like a granted wish.
    That’s why they say… “Be careful of what you wish for”. It’s the same as when I say to myself,
    ”Lisa, be careful of what you choose, cause that’s what you’ll get.”

    So how does one make choices that will get them to their fairy tale life?

    How does one prepare so that when they meet opportunity they will have success?

    I'm sure the night that Cinderella ran home with only one glass slipper and no prince that she opened
    a few kitchen cupboards looking for comfort food. I'm sure she had the phone in her hand wanting to order a pizza.
    I bet she even had a secret stash of gummies hiding beside her bed for some sugary satisfaction.
    BUT in the end I believe that Cinderella had carefully thought about her decisions before hand.
    She had questioned which actions would give her the results she desired and I’m pretty sure she hung onto her dream for a better life,
    a free life, and a confidant life. She was aware that having the power to make her own choices,
    her own wishes, that she would create the life she wanted.
    So instead of eating any of those harmful and smothering foods and waking up with swollen feet,
    that night she closed her eyes and laid her head on the pillow and held on tight to her dream of a life happily ever after.

    Its all about being prepared for the day when your golden opportunity comes up...being the perfect fit when your life's dreams materialize...
    its all about having the mindset and making the decisions that are congruent...that in alignment to what you're trying to create.

    I wish you all a Happy New Year - 2016

    Remember to Always Be Fabulous!

    Luv Wendy
