EXPRESS YO’SELF: 7 Ways to Rev Up Your Va Va Voom!

As Luscious Ladies, we want to live our lives to the fullest.  Since la vida is full of ups & downs & everything in between, it is essential to find ways to come back to ourselves–our hearts, bodies & minds–to find balance.  It is an ongoing process, for sure!  Once the basic life necessities that allow us to function (i.e., eatinghydratingsleeping) are taken care of, we can have fun making life even more juicy!

Here are 7 ways you can rev up your Va Va Voom:

  • CLAIM YOUR FLAVOR: Ask yourself, What is my flavor today? While some days you may be feeling like a flavorful cinnamon, another day you may be emoting zippy cayenne.  Whatever flavor you are: own it, love it & flaunt it!  Note:  Flavors can vary throughout the day!  What flavor are you in this moment?
  • SPORT COLORS: When you get dressed, look for clothing & accessories that have colors you are attracted to. Play with color combinations & have fun!  If you like it, rock it! I have found that on grey days, brighter colors really do make the day brighter, too!  It’s like bringing your own inner sunshine to the world.
  • BE CREATIVE: Whether it is a collage, a meal, or your outfit, find ways to express your creativity every day.  You will find inspiration & joy in getting your hands & heart wrapped up in something that makes the creative juices flow!  Let your inner artist out to play!
  • GET YOUR FLIRT ON: That’s right!  Give yourself permission to flirt with yourself, on the dancefloor & at home!  Whenever you pass a mirror, throw a dashing smile or a seductive wink.  Don’t take yourself seriously; yet, take yourself as serious as you possibly can!  Flirt on, mamacitas!
  • SHARE LOVE: Send yourself & others your love.  Whether you want to display a post-it note on your bathroom mirror that claims I’m freakin’ fly & fabulous or you leave a love note with a reminder to breathe on a loved ones desk, find ways to share your love!  Energy begets energy.
  • MOVE IT: Get bodied with Hipline, as moving boosts your mood, energy & moja!  (Yes, you read that right!  Mojo female style = moja!)  Moving is proven to boost your moja, so shimmy it out while you do dishes, try an undulation in the shower & maybe even bust out a little move in the middle of your day.  Shake what your mama (& papa) gave you!
  • JUST CHILL: Wait, didn’t I just tell you to move it?  Yup!  Remember that in order to have energy to give, you also need to give back to yourself. Massage, meditation, pedicure, walk in nature, reading in bed, bubble baths….whatever brings you back to yourself in a rejuvenating way.  Tip: It sometimes helps to plan this into your calendar with a special colored pen; my chill me-time is in turquoise like tropical water.

I am sure that there are a myriad of ideas that we can come up with together to increase our Va Va Voom energy.  We would love to hear them!  Please share your juicy & unique ideas on the chalkboard walls at the studios & let’s see how many Facebook posts we can create on our ideas about enhancing our collective spicy-ness!

With love, shimmies & a pinch of nutmeg,
