EPISODE 19: POSTPARTUM TOOLS



In this episode of the Own Your Pretty Now Podcast I am sharing some really important postpartum tools I will have in mind (and with me) as I am on the new journey of our second.
If you haven’t heard, we are welcoming a little girl into our family January 2019. Liam is going to have a little sister!
 
I wanted to create some actionable items that I would be able to put into place this time around.
 
I want to eat healthier, give myself the permission to sleep and ask for help when needed.
 
I want to be able to outsource things like house cleaning so that I don’t feel I must do everything.
 
I simply want to have more time with our precious little girl as soon as she arrives. And more time with Liam of course!
 
I want to make sure my appreciation for nutrition and workouts do not go away.
 
To learn more about my tools be sure to tune in and listen to the full episode.
To check out one of my favorite workouts I metioned in the show visit Orangetheory Fitness here.
If you experienced some postpartum depression with your first baby and had tools that worked for you with your second please let me know. Shoot me a message today! I would love to hear them.

EPISODE 16: NURSING DIARY AND DILEMMAS



In this episode of the Own Your Pretty Now Podcast I’m talking all about the topic of Nursing.
I want moms going through the first order of real motherhood to know that feeling the guilt and frustration of nursing is completely normal and ok.
You must be patient and kind to your body first and foremost.
I’d like to say nursing is a bit like starting a business with a new partner.
You’re both about to start a new journey together so patience and maybe a little persistence is really priority.
Know that it is ok to take a break at any time you feel you need one.
Sometimes you may need to bring in a professional like I did with Liam and that is completely ok as well!
Be sure to have a pen and paper for this episode as I’m closing it out with a few tips for you to consider.

EPISODE 14: SITTING DOWN WITH SARAH FRASER



In this episode of the Own Your Pretty Now Podcast I am chatting with my dear friend Sarah Fraser of the Hey Frase Podcast. 

Sarah is a well known media personality currently based out of our Nation’s Capital. Sarah also started in the podcasting game about three years ago. Before it was even a thought for most.

In today’s show she is sharing her story of how her career in radio helped launch her very own successful show.

We also get into motherhood, the joys of coming from great parents and the thoughts we have when it comes time to start our own family.

Sarah also shares with us why her and her partner have decided to wait to have kids. They have been together five years. But wait until you find out how they met! It is a pretty amazing story…

2019 will be the perfect opportunity to start planning something else a little bit near and dear to their hearts.

They may have opposite personalities but they do agree on one thing! A Baby!

We even chat about some of our pros and cons we have surrounding wedding planning which you will definitely have to tune in for more on that!

The two of us actually have quite a bit in common so you’ll hear all that in our conversation.

We both agreed that having a supportive partner is very important. Someone that allows us to follow our dreams and blaze our own trails per say.

Something else we chatted about is mindful living, healthy eating and the importance of having a mindful coach and what that can do to help us live our best life.

We cannot wait to connect with you to chat some more on today’s episode.

EPISODE 13: USING YOUR MOMMY TIME WISELY!



In this episode of the Own Your Pretty Now Podcast I am sharing the story of why I began working with MONAT.

After my mother’s second cancer battle I decided that I only wanted to use products that were healthy, paraben and chemical free.

Ingredients that would not hurt us internally or externally and would be safe for our whole family.

I am also breaking down a few myths of direct sales and network marketing. There are no pyramid schemes here my friends. Just an incredible opportunity to work for companies on your own time.

There is an incredible amount of opportunity working with companies like this. Both freedom wise and monetarily.

My biggest piece of advice is to make sure you do your homework and to find the best products and company that you truly believe in and enjoy using daily.

Please feel free to share this episode with someone who needs this type of content. Someone who may be looking to start that side hustle and fill up that mommy time with a new business venture that is filled with passion and productive pockets of time well spent.

Better yet a new full-time endeavor from the convenience and simplicity of your cell phone and at home or on the go.

EPISODE 11: DOING IT SCARED!



In this episode of the Own Your Pretty Now Podcast I am talking all about how to learn to trust yourself more.

I want you to feel the fear, be terrified and do that one thing that has been on your to-do list.

Or maybe it is some unbelievable offer you simply cannot pass up? Do it scared!

I know this tactic may seem a bit odd…

However, this is how we all learn and grow from situations that come at us like this.

I’m also sharing how my Marketing Professor position came into play last year. I seriously could not be and feel prouder to be teaching and preparing our next future leaders of tomorrow.

What is one thing that you are scared to do? Something you know it is just time for you to take the plunge into? Is it motherhood? A new job? A big move? Let me know! I would love to hear all about it.

EPISODE 10: MOM’S CANCER JOURNEY AND MY MINDSET STORY



In this episode of the Own Your Pretty Now I am finally going to share a bit of my Mom’s cancer story.

I am going to get into the anger, the surgery, the radiation, the chemo and all the lessons learned throughout this time that have made me a much stronger woman for my family and friends.

The reason for sharing all of this is because it is really how and why the Own Your Pretty Now brand began.

After our family’s health crisis we wanted to make ourselves more aware of the beauty products we were using.

We wanted healthier and paraben free. We wanted to be using products that were safe for us and our families.

That is when I was introduced to Monat and Younique products.

Monat is a Vegan line which our family now uses, and we could not be happier.

Please feel free share this episode with someone who needs this type of content. This is the whole reason this podcast has been created.
