THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE.


Here we are, in the home stretch of 2014 and I'm ending the year with a bang. This past year has been one of my roughest years yet.  It was full of big decisions and it seemed like every time I turned around, I was standing at a crossroad. I'm ashamed that I haven't posted much here throughout the year, but my personal life seemed to take over instead. 

My most recent heartbreak was about 3 1/2 weeks ago.  I said goodbye to my favorite creature and best furry friend, my black lab, Abbie. Unfortunately I've lost many people throughout my life but losing her has been the most difficult.  I know she didn't speak my language, but she understood me more than any human has. She filled my life with so much unconditional love and joy everyday.  She was a silly, little dog and her goofy personality was priceless.  As hard as it is to wake up everyday without her, I'm honored that she chose me to be her dog mom for the past 14 years.  I will continue to imagine her running free and healthy in bright fields of flowers while her ears flop around in the wind.  

Abbie wasn't the only one facing health issues this past year, but I've struggled with severe anxiety as well, for the first time in my life.  I thought if I continued my normal, addictive, workaholic behavior that my anxiety would somehow magically disappear, but the harsh reality hit me pretty hard.

No matter how much I love the hustle of la la land, the noise of it all started to take its toll on me. I hope to open up and share a bit more of my personal story and struggles in the coming new year, it seems that my pride has always gotten in the way.  If I've learned one thing with all of this, it's that the more I open up to people, the more easier it is.  I'm not one to ask for help, but I know if I would of this past year, I might of been reminded that I'm only human and I'm not alone in this big race to the finish line.  Why are we racing anyways?  What prize are we trying to win? Life shouldn't be a competition, but no matter how much we tell ourselves that, it's easy to get caught up in the game.  

I have hope that this move big move back to Las Vegas will allow me to heal again and grow.  I just moved into my beautiful, new home 2 weeks ago and I haven't been able to wipe this silly grin off my face, so that must be a good sign.  As I write this post from my new (super cute!) home office, I'm filled with overwhelming gratitude. I've been welcomed back home with open arms from old friends and family and big bear hugs from new friends.

2015 will be filled with exciting opportunities, blog expansions (YAY!) and belly laughs for days. I have hope that things are exactly as they should be and my heart is open for new adventures!

xoxo
Bree

NERIUM AD: READY. SET. GLOW!


I was recently introduced to NeriumAD® from a friend and was pleasantly surprised with the product and results so far!  I've just started my nightly routine and As I get older and deal with the everyday stress I'm not too happy with what it does to my skin, so I'm excited to see how it can help me and hopefully gain back a little more confidence.

NeriumAD® Age-Defying Treatment is a skin care range known for its antioxidant properties and harnessed the power of the unique nerium oleander plant.  Scientists discovered the oleander extracts to have miraculous results on your skin, both naturally and safely, as it's been used for centuries as a medical herb.

The older I get and the more stress I deal with, it takes a nasty toll on my skin.  Quite honestly, I love makeup, but if I had my way I would just have such perfect skin I wouldn't need to wear any. I can only imagine how much time every week I would save... I deal with clients all the time and although my inner confidence shines, when my face isn't looking so great, it makes me feel extremely insecure. Can you relate?  I've just started my nightly routine and I'm excited to see the results, so stay tuned!

Clinical trials of NeriumAD® have showed results in the following:
Fine Lines + Wrinkles
Hyperpigmentation
Enlarged Pores
Uneven Skin Texture
Aging or Sun Damaged Skin

STREET ART INSPIRATION: DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS




If you've noticed my social media lately, you might already know that just moved back home to Las Vegas. Leaving Los Angeles was/is bittersweet and I will continue to commute back and forth for work, but there are many reasons I needed to relocate for now.  Most of them being personal and I hope to open up in the near future and share.  I wasn't sure how I felt about being back in Vegas again, but it's exactly where I need to be. Recently I attended the Life Is Beautiful Festival where my good friends and local Las Vegas band, Goldboot opened the show (shameless promo plug because they are that awesome!) and I discovered the most ah-mazing street art in Downtown Las Vegas.

I was excited when Perrier® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water asked me to team up so I could help introduce the new limited edition bottles and cans while featuring my fave local street art.

When I originally moved to Vegas in 1992, it was light years away from having any sense of culture. It was basically known for its' bright lights, loud slot machines, cheap beers and the faint memories of the Rat Pack. These days, Vegas is filled with a different kind of energy, more vibrant and happy. It feels more alive with art and music and the city prides itself on its’ dedicated community, as they strive to keep it this way.

It was nice to take a little stroll through the downtown area and see how much it had changed.  I was full of inspiration and secretly wished I had the talent of these awesome artists.














This post is sponsored by Perrier® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water in celebration of its new limited Street Art® edition. This limited edition packaging is a collaboration between Perrier and three of the world’s influential street artists: JonOne, Sasu and Kobra. To see the full line of collectible designs and learn more about this exciting debut, visit www.SocietePerrier.com/StreetArtbyPerrier and join the conversation with #StreetArtByPerrier
