YouTube Is My Wonderland | The Light You See In Other’s Means It’s In You!

I don’t have a TV in my apartment, however I watch plenty of TV…. YouTube that is! I adore the YouTube platform and community. It is such an easy and direct way to share information and allows  so much of your personal flare to shine through. You really feel like you get to know your peeps on YouTube and I just love the positive, high-vibe, yet elclectic group that I’m subscribed to that I stalk weekly for new uploads.

Some of My Favorites That You Must Check Out Are:

Mimi Ikonn, her husband Alex Ikonn, and her Luxy Hair channel.

-I also adore Kassie who is the beauty behind CloudyApples which is a channel that shares amazing holisic lifestyle tips.

-When it comes to Holistic Habbits, you’ve got to check Sarah’s channel out as well her natural tips and recipes are rad.

-I also love the inspiration from past WWRadio guest Micheal Gebben.

-My spiritual mentors have rad channels too including Mastin Kipp’s funny and inspirational videos on The Daily Love TV & my guru Gabrielle Bernstein’s new vlog every Monday.

– Practicing yoga one YouTube is one of my favorite things to do. I practice almost every day with Anita Goa or Tara Stiles! Both WWRadio guests!

-And for grounded business advice I look to She Takes On The World, Alex Beadon, and of course the rockstar of MarieTV Marie Forleo.

Not only do I know you’ll want to follow all of these amazing YouTube stars, I’m hoping you’ll add one last YouTuber to this list of subscriptions: me!

With all of above as my inspiration I’ve decided to commit to building my own presence on YouTube by consistently providing one video per week + a new WWRadio interview. What I learned from watching so much YouTube over the years was that the light I admired in my subscriptions was a reflection of the light with in me and I wanted to share my light on YouTube as my favorite way to communicate is through video.

So I’m committing to two new videos per week, so give me a thumbs up & hit subscribe to hang out with me in my YouTube Wellness Wonderland.

PS. If you feel like I do about YouTube and want to create your own channel, check out my interview with Gebbs. I learned everything I know about creating a successful YouTube channel from him.



Best Juice Experience of my Life | DROUGHT at the Detroit Shinola Storefront

Yes the juice was grand, but paled in comparison to the conversation. This week I visited a real local gem, the DROUGHT storefront at the beautiful Shinola Flagship store. Not only do you walk in and immediately want everything in there (from this rad bike to this iPad case to the juice), but the warm inviting atmosphere and cool people make you want to stay for hours.

I don’t talk enough in WWonderland about all the positive local strides toward wellness and the DROUGHT sisters are right at the lead of that. Their passion is magnetizing and they are clearly living their purpose.

Ever since their event where they brought Joe Cross from Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead in to DetroitDROUGHT has been on my radar and finally getting to try a juice exceeded my expectations. As Joe said in his lecture (one of my favorite take-aways) with every dollar you spend on food you are casting a vote. That’s why I’m happy to spend $10 on a raw juice I know is organic, cold-pressed, full of enzymes, and love, all in a well-designed glass bottle. And better yet I’m supporting a cool local family business that I know will never compromise their product for anything because of the effort and passion they have for their mission. The DROUGHT sisters way cool and super inspiring, get to know them here and see for yourself.

As for the juice: I asked Jessie, one of the DROUGHT sisters, what her favorite juice was and decided I would get that. Without hesitation she recommended Apple, Ginger, Lemon juice with a shot of E3Live mixed in. While I usually go for the greens, I’m so glad I tried this. You get all the great minerals from the E3Live and all the intense flavor of the raw juice. It was the most refreshing thirst-quenching thing I’ve ever tasted and gave me instant energy on a hot day.

GOOD ADVICE | Do things with passion or do nothing at all.

Ever feel overwhelmed with too much to do, but not enough time? Just make time! It’s simple – get up earlier or go to bed earlier and only spend time on things that you are passionate about as much as you possibly can. And the trick to doing this is to become passionate about even the most mundane things, such as folding clothes, washing the dishes, or taking a shower. Do everything you do with passion or don’t do anything at all. On Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday episode with the young new spiritual leaders she had a great quote that really stuck with me. Oprah said, “I only make my bed on the weekends, but when I do I pretend I am Martha Stawart…I do it perfectly, all the pillows are in the perfect place….

I loved the point Oprah’s making here – either make your bed with passion or don’t do it at all. Make even the most mundane things special or don’t do them at all!
