Celebrate YOUR Shine!

Recent TODAY Show Feature

I had a blast on the Today Show today sharing some bodylove in a swimsuit with stylist Lilliana Vazquez this past Monday. Check out full segment below and fun pics of the day HERE.

Remember, when it comes to "flattering" trends consider inviting yourself to rock-out whatever style/cut you feel represents you. It's all about OWNING it:)


Elephant Journal: Becoming a Bride: Fitting into Each Other, not the Dress.

If you had asked me, during the peak years of my body dysmorphia and restrictive dieting what I would be like the weeks leading up to my wedding day, I would have answered:

“Most likely on a 14 day juice cleanse, taking boot camp classes every day and locking myself in my apartment, obsessing.”

The good news is: I didn’t do that. It’s a huge win for me. Especially when you consider the pressure that is placed on a bride to look as perfect as she possibly can for her big day...

Hope you enjoy! If you ever want to discuss what you are experiencing as your prepare to walk down the aisle, contact me ANYTIME!

Also, HUMUNGOUS thank you to all of the vendors who shared their services with us. As well as Beanfield Snacks and Kind Snacks for keeping our tummies happy:)

We raised over $500 dollars for DMF Youth, which means we helped provide arts education to underprivileged youth in NYC. And it doesn't get much better than that!

afraid to fly...

I am embarrassed to admit but I am scared of flying and it's getting worse as I get older. And the last few flights I have been on have been a jumpy, bumpy scare ride.

However, I have a choice in this matter. I can either choose not to travel because of discomfort and fear.


I can invest in taking on a new mindset when flying.

I'm going with the latter. And because I know I am not alone in this anxiety, I thought I would share what tips I use to CALM me on those big ol' jet airliners.

  1. Breathe."Fear is excitement with out the breath." ~Fritz Perls I just keep breathing and telling myself " I'm just sooooo excited!!!!!!! How fun is that?!? Weeeee"
  2. Talk. I keep a running monologue in my head that goes like this..."I have the CHOICE to be calm, I have the CHOICE to be brave, I have the CHOICE to be strong. I am CALM, BRAVE and STRONG Kell, you got this."
  3. Move. I don't freaking care if I look like an idiot, I'm shaking it out, I'm dancing, I'm tensing and relaxing my muscles. Because there is nothing worse for me than when the anxiety is rushing up and down my body and I'm just sitting in it.
  4. Music. Need I say more. Jam it, find the songs that lift you mood and make you naturally elevated.
  5. Visualize. I use my imagination to take me to happy places. I think of happy future moments, or a place I find sacred. Just as it did when we were children our imagination can take us anywhere if we truly tap into it.

If all else fails, which is does me often. Take comfort in who you are traveling with, let them know how you are feeling and cuddle up in their shoulder. Luckily, I have a hunky husband who is very used to my hand squeezing by now.


3 Ways To Transform A Bachelorette Party Into A Celebration Of Soul Sisters

When you think bachelorette party, this visual may come to mind: a gaggle of boisterous girls in vanity t-shirts, giggling and dancing with alcohol-glazed eyes. Now, don’t get me wrong, any opportunity to dance my ass off and be silly with my girlfriends is heaven to me.

However, my journey to becoming a wife has been one of emotional highs and lows—lots of big feels, to say the least, of who I am and what this new identity means.

By the time my bachelorette party rolled around, I was craving some epic girl time. I needed my tribe of powerful women to help remind me of who I have grown to be and further support me on where I am growing next...

Post T-Day Cleansing Soup Recipe

If you are anything like me, Turkey Day does a number on you! Bloating, a break out, little fatigue all signs of a Thanksgiving well done! However, now that it is the Monday after, it's time to feel better. So I made a big ol' batch of cleansing veggie soup to do the trick! Hope you enjoy!

2 tbls Coconut Oil
5 Cloves of Garlic
1 Onion
3 Bay Leaves
1 bundle of Celery
5 Carrots
2 Cups Broccoli 
1 Parsnip
1 Turnip
32 oz Organic Chicken Stock
16 oz Water
1 Cup Quinoa
Bushel of Dandelion Greens
Bushel of Bok Choy
Fresh Parsley
Sea Salt

In large soup pot, sautee garlic and onion in the coconut oil. When brown and translucent add bay leaves and chopped celery, carrots and broccoli. Add stock and water and bring to a boil. Add quinoa, full parsnip and turnip and simmer. When parsnip and turnip are soft, remove, chop and put back in to pot. Add chopped Dandelion, Bok Choy and parsley and season accordingly. Let cook on medium heat until all flavors blend and marry each other! 

This baby serves an army as I plan on eating it all week long. However, freeze if you don't think you will get through it all. 

From the anti-inflammatory properties of the garlic to the detoxing effects of dandelion greens this baby is a mouth full of body-happy awesomeness. Also, it's warm, made with love and tastes great!

Enjoy and Shine On!
