Hello to NEW beginnings

I abandoned my little secret lover; blogging!  When I closed my shop a few years ago I wanted and needed a break to clear my mind and really decide what would be next.  I did not allow myself too much of a break as I dove head first into building an Arbonne business.  I promoted many times and earn a decent income from the work I did years ago.  Hello residual income;)
I also earned my real estate license to help a special client find "THE" perfect Palm Beach getaway and really enjoy the real estate world.  Having an insiders knowledge of the Palm Beach and West Palm Beach markets and a real knack for finding and helping clients visualize properties gives me access to their dreams come true. Add a thriving client list and this truly is a blessing!!!

Now enter the question on everyone's mind...I get asked constantly, "Do you miss your store?"  NO, I do not!  But after some long term soul searching I have come to realize what I do miss!  MY BLOG!

I decided to re launch with a new concept.  My store, building an Arbonne business, even real estate seems to be all about self promotion.  On some level these days everyone is branding themselves and that is actually really cool!   I have decided to launch www.KPstylehunter.com as a way to highlight a lifestyle.  I will be documenting what is happening on the fashion scene, giving behind the scenes industry info, interviewing style makers, capturing street style, giving budget friendly options for pricey looks and folding in my personal style while I am on the hunt.  The STYLEHUNT that is...

Tune in for carefully edited content on living your life FULL of style!

I hope to see y'all there:)!!!!!

Disco in 2013?...YES!

I have been sooooo busy working that my poor little blog has been neglected!  I took a part time job in a boutique for "season" in Palm Beach and Arbonne is in FULL BLOOM!!  I have been spending my days in YOGA class, training for a marathon, working, sharing Arbonne, and chauffeuring my kids around town.  But you know I ALWAYS have my eyes peeled for fashion.  These days seem to be more so than ever on merchandise OVERLOAD!!!!!  Trends are introduced at EVERY price point overnight!  Typically a trend moves so fast you better not blink or you will MISS IT.  You all know leggings are everywhere and we all wear them in several forms.  BUT MOVE OVER...American Apparel has out done them all.  Lycra "Disco Pants" are my must have pick of the new year.  I own the black and the navy and charcoal are on my list from Santa:)!  They fit like a glove and look amazing for day or night!

Humbled by the FLU

Well isn't that the truth!  I try to take the very best care of myself,I promise.  I know I can not afford to be sick!!!  I have a family to take care of!!!...Sound familiar?  Well when the kids came home with the funk on Monday of last week, I went into super mode, nursing them back to health:)  Serving homemade chicken noodle soup, washing my hands like a fiend, cloroxing everything, and keeping it all together.  That is until Friday morning when I woke up and knew I was sunk...the flu!  AWFUL!
I am so humbled by these past few days and all that we are able to accomplish when we have our health and our energy is "normal".  So I wanted to take a minute today to reflect on the amazing gift so many of us are given...our health.  We are so blessed to be able to get out of bed each day..even when we may not "want" to, we can:) I am so grateful for the boundless energy I have each day to take care of my family and to help others!  This flu bug served as a GREAT reminder just how blessed I am!  Thank you GOD for my energy, my health, and my ability to take care of myself and so many others!!!!!!

I miss my manic energy  LOL

Time to Get Fit

Thursday, May 3, 2012


Well we are home from Vegas and it was, well hard to describe just how inspirational it was!  Let me start with the fashion.  I have traveled to Vegas several times for MAGIC.  This is the largest apparel show in the world.  300,000-400,000 fashionistas embark on Sin City for a 4 day show that never disappoints.  One might think the parade of beauties in perfect fashions might be hard to beat, well it is!  But...I saw it topped this past weekend in Vegas for Arbonnes GTC (Global Training Conference).  This group of women and gents were just beyond adorable.  Chic, stylish, well appointed, confident, KILLER heels, and they were all G L O W I N G!!!
I am fully rolling with surrounding myself with people who are lifting me up and encouraging me to be more, do more, have more, ALL so I can give more!  I just want to encourage my readers today to surround yourselves with people that are lifting you UP , not dragging you down!  Do you have a friend or family member that is "not" for you?  If they are not for you, they are against you (for now).  People go through their own "stuff", but if they are not encouraging you find peeps who will!

You will not regret this ALL powerful step in lifting your spirit and moving you on to bigger and better areas in our life!

Be still, and see the light!


Esther 4:13

Be still for a while and praise God for His favor, His grace and His awesomeness. God is able to do the impossible and is always near. He loves us unconditionally.  Let's all say this prayer during this hour:  Send this to your friends who you love and pray for their best:)!  The power of prayer is AMAZINGLY POWERFUL>>>I want to encourage ALL my readers today to excel above their expectations!

Dear God, This is my friend whom I love and this is my prayer for her. Help her live her life to the fullest. Please cause her to excel above her expectations. Help her to shine in the darkest places where it is impossible to love. Protect her at all times, lift her up when she needs you the most, and let her know when she walks with You, she will always be safe Amen!

Imagine if you did not have to worry


Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Philippians 4:6
Imagine someone who knows EVERYTHING you have done.  ALL the good and bad!  There is NO detail they are spared and nothing you can hide.  Now imagine that person forgiving you for ALL of it and LOVING you more than you are capable of understanding:)

That is the kind of love we receive through our savior:))
Do not let yesterdays famine rob you of todays feast:)

You decide, check out these two comprehensive slide shows

Change your thoughts...Change your LIFE


I have always been a positive thinker.  Turns out that is not enough.  I have spent time thinking about the wrong things...worrying about things that never happen!  Turns out they are not "supposed" to happen.  I had NO idea what journey I was about to embark on a year ago when I closed my shop.  I thought close the store, hang with my kids more, possibly move to Alabama, and live life in the slow lane. And I was OK with that!

Turns out God had a MUCH bigger plan for me and for my life:)!  I started a business with Arbonne with NO intention of taking is "seriously".  I did hope to make a few extra bucks to help pay bills but it turns out it is SOOOO much more for me than extra money.  The TEAM I have has completely changed my focus, changed my thoughts, and changed my life.

I did not necessarily think my life needed changing.  So odd looking back at how much better it is now.  Possibly I had settled! 

I am now on a mission to inspire others to change their thoughts, change their focus, and change their life.  Not because I think everyone's lives are bad.  Because I think everyone's live can be better!!

Through deepening my faith, making lifestyle changes (diet and exercise), and changing my focus.  I am living a purposeful, inspired, and happy life.

Join me in my quest to help others find their true calling and help others feel and look their very best.  Nothing looks as good as feeling good!!!!!!!

Five of my Favorite Things

Our home if FULL of LOVE...AKA a petting zoo
COWBOY

DISCO
LIZZY
we will miss you and LOVE you FOREVER!

AUSTIN & GYPSY

I was planning a "five favorite things" post to close this week.  As I started thinking of what "really"makes me happy and all these fur babies are on my mind!  We lost our maltese Lizzy a couple of weeks ago  It is as difficult as people try to explain it is when they experience the death of an animal. My husband who traveled
 with her was so upset he had to stay in a hotel as it was just too painful to stay in his home away from home without her:)!

He explained to me he wanted to rescue a dog and needed to do it right away.  I understand as we are all mourning and it is such a huge hole to try to fill.  Enter Cowboy.  We went to The Big Dog Rescue Ranch and met this beautiful Chocolate Lab and right away knew he was ours:)  It is going to take a BIG dog to help heal from the loss of our little angel.  Looks like Cowboy is up for the challenge:)

I love that we were able to rescue this amazing animal who ended up homeless!  He was dropped off in the middle of the night with a note the family could no longer afford to keep him:)!

From our little petting zoo to you...
Have a GREAT weekend!

Moving Forward


I love this message!  SO much time from SO many people is wasted on what if, should have been, could have been, and other negative thoughts.  The past is not meant to be fretted over, it is meant to be moved on from.  You have probably heard it before but the only gift we truly have is the "present.  The past is over and the future is not a promise.

I do not know if anyone can relate, but life does not always turn out exactly like we hoped, planned, or "intended".  My life has gone in some directions I never envisioned yet I KNOW I am exactly where I am intended to be. We are faced with a decision each moment to enjoy where we are OR waste this moment living in the past or the future.  I choose to have peace and through my faith I am able to enjoy each and every road I travel.

When I opened my boutique I thought I would have my shop forever.  Just like when I married my husband he thought he would operate his families orange groves forever.  Neither turned out to be true!  My husband and his family lost the fruit in the groves due to citrus canker and in turn the business and all the land is a mess.  He found himself fighting a HUGE fight of he said she said as everyone needs someone to blame when things go south:(  When I made the decision to close my shop it was really just because I missed my family and no longer wanted to miss my kids "everything" to be running a small business!  Little did I know all of these things happened so that we could get to where we are today:)  You know the saying "everything happens for a reason"  SO TRUE!

I live SO much more peacefully when I do not have to figure everything out and can put my faith in God.  I trust his plan for my life and therefore I am able to enjoy the gift that is...THE PRESENT!

So...Don't look back...we are not going that way!  Put your eyes on the lord and he will handle the details in his time:)

Keep your focus UP!


I LOVE my drive each weekday morning taking my kids to school.  As I cruise along the ocean in Palm  Beach calling out spelling words we always take a moment to look at the beautiful sunrise:)  Each day I am reminded to keep my eyes, my heart, and my focus UP!  This is where the answers flow, the joy comes, and true love resides.  So many times we get bogged down and caught up in our own minds and do not focus on what is truly important.  We think we can come up with answers on our own. We look down in a tizzy franticly searching for answers or peace that do not seem to come...hello frustration!!!!  Take a DEEP breath and focus on GOD, he will calm you mind and show you the way:)

He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others.  When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.  2 Corinthians 1:4

AHHH! blog identity crisis!


I keep avoiding posting because the premiss of the blog is fashion and although I am a total fashion fan... it seems SO unimportant to me in the scheme of my life at the moment!  Now do not think I have lost it!!!  I still love to put myself together each day and I am always seeking chic finds. I am in a new place in my life where I have discovered the secret to looking fabulous is feeling fabulous.

I have taken a huge leap of faith and put my trust and faith in Jesus to guide me to my bigger vision and WOW has he showed up in my life in  a BIG way!!  I prayed that he would change me to make me the women he made me to be and that was that.  He came into my life and EVERYTHING changed!!!

I am still called to ALL things Fabulous.  First my FAITH, fitness, fashion, food, and far away places.

The only thing is they are different healthier foods, a lot more fitness, new places where I have been called (thinking family mission trip),  and fashion, yes of course still fashion.  ALL infiltrated with the AMAZING light and love that Jesus has shined into my life.

I would like to head in a new direction on this blog as I am headed in a new direction in my life:)

I hope all my followers will understand and engage in the journey...possibly be inspired to be and do more in our lives as we are so called to do!!!

Stalking the UPS man!

I am stalking the UPS man today!  I am out of my protein shakes and fizz tabs!  NOT GOOD!!  These products make it SO easy for me to stay on track with my healthy living goals.

The steady energy it gives me to get through my workout and through my day is a must for this busy mom, I want my Arbonne!  LOL
