What Oprah and I Have in Common

I just got my December issue of O magazine featuring Oprah’s favorite things….that got me thinking about MY favorite things…the things I use nearly every day.
While many of Oprah’s are quite pricey, mine are mostly in the $20-$30 range and they are what I consider “small luxuries.”
These items bring me joy, beauty, comfort, and ease.
Get some for yourself (and they make great stocking stuffers!)

Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

I LOVE this delicious smelling and creamy moisturizer that always puts a smile on my face. And, it’s a good solution to dry, winter skin!

The Wand Removes Histamines & Sulfite Preservatives, No More Wine Headaches
I can finally drink red wine thanks to this amazing product that truly works! The Wand alleviates ALL of the most common side effects from drinking wine: Headaches, Congestion, Skin Flush, Upset Stomach, and Hangovers. REMOVES HISTAMINES AND SULFITES that trigger the most common wine sensitivities. The Wand filters all types of wines, including red, white, rosé and sparkling wines. And, it works WITHOUT changing the natural taste, aromas or color of wine.

Zing Vital Energy Nutrition Bar
I always have one of these tasty, healthy bars close by for when hunger strikes!
I love the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip…it’s High Protein, High Fiber, Low Sugar, Chunky Peanut Butter, Real Dark Chocolate that is gluten-free, non-GMO, with 10 grams of plant-based vegan protein, mixed with real, optimum natural ingredients to give you wholesome energy and nutrition with real flavor in each bite.

The Original, Eco-friendly, Portable Travel Drinking Straw
We’ve all heard that plastic straws are destroying the planet….now there is a cool solution, bring your own stainless steel straw in its own very attractive bamboo case. I never leave home without them!

Ancient Minerals Magnesium Bath Flakes
Magnesium Salt Flakes offer a highly effective, yet muscle-calming, means of absorbing magnesium nutrients. Pour into a warm bath and soak – it not only infuses you with necessary magnesium, it dissolves negative energy cords!

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 (this not your ordinary Chapstick—it’s luxurious!)
Hydrating treatment that nourishes, protects and plumps the lips. Has a bright, citrus scent and is FREE of petroleum, mineral oil, and lanoline and NO Parabens – Sulfates – Synthetic Dyes – Petrochemicals – Phthalates – GMOs – Triclosan.

Small luxuries are a must-have for me…a daily reminder of how good and abundant life is!

Wishing you love, laughter, and magical kisses,


The Art of Detachment (my sad story…)

When manifesting a dream or desire, there is a Universal Law as important and potent as the Law of Attraction. It’s called the Law of Detachment. When we are emotionally attached to “making” our desire happen we set ourselves up for frustration and disappointment and simultaneously keep ourselves at a vibration that can “push away” what we say we want most.


Now, being detached does not in any way mean that you’re giving up.


It just means that you hold your desire for your dream, and stay as neutral as possible, detached from the outcome, knowing that the Universe is always conspiring in your highest and best good.


I know this sounds nearly impossible and it isn’t always easy.


Today, I am writing about this to remind myself to remember to practice detachment, as it’s a big issue for me right now.


My next book Turn Your Mate Into Your Soulmate comes out at the end of the year and for the first time ever, I find myself VERY attached to getting massive book sales.


ariandGodIn the past I have worked hard to market my books but have never held high expectations for them….I just figured I would put out my best efforts and then see what happens. This book is very different for me. It’s a very personal book and it’s filled with highly personal stories about all the amazing love restoring skills I have learned over the years.


I know that anyone in a relationship (or anyone who PLANS to be in a relationship) will definitely learn a few things in this book that will substantially improve their connection to their beloved. Thus, my desire to get the book out there in a big way.


Here’s how I am dealing with my “attachment.”


  • Prayer – each time the thoughts bubble up, I close my eyes and thank the Divine for releasing me. I also call in my angels, guides and ancestors and ask them to restore me to sanity.
  • Tapping – I am tapping through the anxiety the attachment causes me with statements such as “I am happy and satisfied that my book is doing exactly what is in my highest and best good.”
  • Reading – I put myself into a heart-centered state of gratitude and then read through the long list of insanely positive reviews the book has gotten so far, reminding myself that are many levels, my job is done. I can now surrender to divine right order.


After 30 years of manifesting, I do know that all it takes to detach is to stay aware and trust that what I have asked for IS already mine. Happy Manifesting!


Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,
