TNT Wedding Weight Release

  • Posted on November 16, 2016 at 2:42 pm


What is TNT weight release? Well the entire name is Weight Release The New Thought Way,

    which is a program I’m reintroducing in which you do not have to diet to release your unwanted weight. It’s a five-day quickie dare initially and you will get an overall review of what the 25-day Dare is all about. And here’s the best part with regard to your wedding day–NO DIEting. No deprivation! No exercise. All of this because what you eat doesn’t really affect your body. It’s your mind, body, emotion that affects your psyche.

    Yup! That’s right. You do not have to die wanting to eat something that you know in your heart of hearts is not good for you. Plus, there’s no exercising, at least not in the hard sense. Now you may be wondering, what in the world is New Thought, let alone the New Thought Way. First things first, New Thought is a protestant philosophical movement (based on scripture) that started during the late 19th century in the belief that God is the source and all good, that humans are spiritual beings created in God’s image which are inherently good, there is power in affirmative prayer*, the teachings of Jesus Christ leads us as our Way-Shower, and we must live our principles, not just know them.

    *One of the co-founders the Unity Movement, Myrtle Fillmore was cured of TB with the use of affirmative prayer, feelings and belief. And this was at time that TB was a prescribed death sentence. I am not saying you will die from NOT releasing the weight, but if you are overweight you are putting a strain on most if not all of your organs and wouldn’t it be great to release that weight without restricting a lot of what you normally like to eat? Now that is not to say that you can eat any and all of what you like. Let’s be realistic, eating some things in moderation or not at all is smart. I will explain those parameters and this plan can assist you in releasing weight that is not serving you at all, especially if you have to sit all the time or may have trouble walking up and down stairs or maybe you feel out of breath most of the time.

    This program Weight Release: TNT Way is based on my book Spiritual Identity: Weight Release – TNT

has a 5-day Dare which jumpstarts your ability to get acclimated to the ten tools during the full 25-Day TNT Dare AND begin releasing weight. Six of the ten tools you already use in the your everyday life now. We will just tweak them so you use them more effectively with regard to your weight goals. Learning these tools in which you can enhance the release of weight without diets, without exercise and still feel great about yourself. You’ll start to see real results within your mind, soul and on your body even after the first day. You’re sure to feel more confident, too. I’ll introduce you to the plan through this micro-course, so you have an idea of what the full plan involves. Just think with the 25-Day plan you may have the results in less than a month’s time. How easy could it be?

And won’t that be delectable when it comes to fitting into your dress without complications? AND you’ll have no fear of regaining the weight since it is NOT a deprivation diet. With this TNT Weight Release Dare you will get to the figure you desire, easier, and quicker.

Ruimio Make-Up 6-Color Palette Tray Surprised Me

 RUIMIO Makeup Contour Kit Highlight and Bronzing Powder Palette – 6 Colors

Ruimio Make-Up 6-Color Palette Tray surprised me with it versatility. When it arrived I opened the box to find four colors that I thought would never do anything to enhance my skin tone, but I was pleasantly surprised once I decided to give all six colors in the tray a try.
As you can see from my selfie (For the record, not my best shot and my husband hates selfies.), I started off my trial with clean dry skin and I started from the lower right hand corner, using that as my foundation and then built on top of my face with the various colors to enhance either with coverage, contouring or color additions to my face. I believe it and me came out looking terrific. My skin tone was smoothed out and it did not look like I had on any makeup at all and that’s what we all want. We desire to look effortless beautiful, right?

Fresh Washed Face


Make up Tips and Tricks

1) I used the medium brown in the upper right hand corner as my foundation, using a brush.
2) On the far upper left is a white that I used lightly as dark circle highlighter to erase those circles (which surprisingly worked very well.).
3) In the middle on the bottom, I used the peach as my blush (and it worked, too.) on my cheekbones.
4) The tray below the medium brown in the lower right hand corner is a dark brown which I used as my contour beneath my cheekbones.
5) The upper middle color is light beige which I used to matte & prime my eyelids.
6) And on the lower left hand corner is medium beige, that has a hint of green in it, so I used that as my eyelid color.

And since I go almost nowhere without lip color, I had to add one of my favorites, which is not part of the Ruimio palette’s color tray.

If you’re tight on space to take things with you, make-up wise in your bag (if you didn’t get a bigger bag to take with you), then this slim set of 6-color palette tray is great to take. It’s slim and can fit most anywhere without taking up much room.
The two things I wish it had would be its own set of brushes and the names of the colors in the tray either on the back or even on the plastic liner. The reason they don’t have the brushes is I’m sure because it would add bulk, but not sure about why they didn’t include color names. Perhaps it’s so you can decide where to put it. All-in-all though its versatility truly surprised me.

Leveraging Yourself Against Fear

  • Posted on September 18, 2014 at 1:16 am   This truly shows looking fear in the face and triumphing for a giant reward. It’s a little over 2 minutes, but worth it.


This is article by a friend of mine Bianca Lynn who works as a guide to
help people reconnect with their own truth and live in a way that feels
authentic and meaningful. She’s at This article
isn’t necessarily for the engaged, but I felt after reading it, that it
could be applied to your wedding plans.


Sharing Yourself Is Scary   –  Bianca DiSalvo   (Part 1)When I was a little girl I embraced who I was. I shared myself willingly, abundantly and completely. When I was happy I laughed. When I was excited I screamed. When I was hurt or scared I cried. That’s what kids do. They share themselves and their experiences openly for the world to see.Over time, things changed and I stopped sharing myself so authentically. Maybe I got distracted. Maybe the world got more risky. Maybe I learned sharing myself fully was not acceptable. Maybe I had more to lose as I grew up. Perhaps it was all of the above.Whatever caused this change in my ability to share myself fully left things a little lackluster. My life was good. I was grateful for all I had. Still, it felt a little less than satisfying. I felt disconnected from myself, from what mattered to me, from what I was really here for.  And I felt disconnected from those around me.The fear of sharing yourself is something that most of us have. By the time we’ve reached adulthood each one of us has determined what we can and cannot share. We are negotiating it and navigating it all the time. Is it okay for you to share your own brilliance, pride or contentment? What about your fear or heartbreak?

10 + Tips for Wedding Planning AND website fix

  • Posted on October 28, 2013 at 3:47 am

If you are a newsletter member or a radio show listener you will know that I told you that my dates for articles listed on my website had been broken somehow and all articles were stuck with an August 2013 date.  Usually I wouldn’t mind, since that is my birthday month, but I do want you to know that I am current with the information I am giving you.  This missive is just a way of trying it out, but let me also tell you what’s been popping off here in the Big Apple on the wedding scene, too

The air is crisp, actually it has been downright cold.  Who am I trying to kid.  My heat thankfully was turned up and is pumping out nicely.  I hope that you are experiencing that toasty feeling as you continue to plan for your nuptials.  If not find your fiance’ and cuddle together while you do your planning.

  Christina Ricci married her fiance on my Mom’s Birthday or . . . well 10/26/13

      Vera Wang’s strapless dresses are still hanging on.

      In the last year, celebrities have been having private, secret or intimate which means small weddings.  Will that trend seep into the lives of regular folks’ weddings, too.  It could save you a bundle.

      DIY wedding programs are on the rise, as keepsake items for both the wedding couple and their guests.

      Save-the-Date magnets, DON’T have to be expensive AND it helps remind your guests not to plan anything else on your wedding day.

      Cupcakes are now taking over as the wedding cake go-to item.  Easy for both the wedding couple and their guests to eat, especially on-the-run in the reception when greeting other people.

      Save big on wedding ceremony & reception by having your wedding in January or February.   That’s the time when places are starving for people to reserve venues.  (Immediately following the holidays) is a plus for you.

       Allow your guests to feel like stars too, with a DIY red carpet and backdrop (maybe with your logo or names scattered on the backdrop) for your version of a photo booth.  Talk about fun times for all, plus great wedding pictures.

       Engaged, but no wedding date yet?  Start saving now, via a wedding prepaid debit card, or bank account specific to the wedding or store a certain amount under your mattress or in a jar each week. (I’m half kidding.)
