In honor of the mothers and mothers-to-be out there, I’m celebrating with an episode that’s all about pink…wine! Author, blogger and food and wine expert, Rosina Wilson, is back on Goddess this week to talk about the black sheep of the wine family—rosé. What used to be misunderstood as cheap and sweet is now trending on the wine scene, just in time for patio weather! Crisp, refreshing and, like you, it’s best when chilled.

Do I have arms like Madonna? No…not really. But that’s what I was aspiring to achieve when I first began yoga years ago. “Madonna does yoga? I’m in.” It didn’t take me long, however, to discover that yoga isn’t just a workout for your body. Yoga is a practice that can serve as a “path master” for spiritual alignment. To all you goddesses out there who might be searching for that “thing” that’s missing, yoga might be able to help you find it. Spiritual alignment’s not your gig? Then yoga is a kick ass workout! No matter which side of the fence you land on, this ancient practice has super thumbs up health benefits—from sculpting your Madonna guns, to calming your busy mind. Join me this week for a short and sweet episode of Goddess as I share a conversation with world-class yogi, teacher, and holistic healer, Tiffany Cruikshank. She’ll touch on what yoga means to her, the benefits to committing to a practice, as well as imparting some advice for all the newbies out there—a great show for advanced practitioners and beginners alike!read more
Prepare to have your mind BLOWN this week on Goddess. Here’s the deal—life is busy, right? Between kids, work, quilting competitions or whatever, the sands of the hourglass seem to flow more and more quickly these days. So quickly, in fact, that certain things begin to fall through the cracks. In my case, I’m referring to friends. I get so busy spinning plates, I forget that there are important people in my life that I’m not making time for. So for this episode of Goddess, I atone for my sins with the help of some provocative questions from Table Topics, and three good buddies who love me despite my inability to stay in touch. We’re going to have deep, meaningful and hilarious conversations in 20 minutes or less—Quickie Communions! Here are the topics we'll discuss below, plus some that we didn't have to time touch on. Check them out then email me your answers—you could land a spot on the show! --> Quickie Communions ENJOY! Michelle Is it more important to develop beliefs, or gain knowledge?

Who doesn’t love to gab about beauty products? Creams, serums, lotions—anti-aging, cellulite removing, pore-reducing, youth enhancing—the list goes on and on. They don’t always work but we keep buying them. Why? Because we’re consumers, it’s what we do. But with so many dangerous chemicals in the products we use, are we helping our skin, or hurting it? Join me this week for a little beauty talk and some tips from Cherylyn Van Kirk, founder of Starflower Essentials.

Yep, you know the ones. The friend that can’t get enough drama, the partner that thinks you do everything wrong, the parent that won’t let you be an adult—the person that brings out the worst in you. We’ve all had them: toxic relationships. They’re no good for anyone, but what do we do? Put up with the happiness they perpetuate? Walk away entirely? Sometimes neither one of those is an option, so this week on Goddess, we’re consulting our in-house life coach, Pati Root of Root Dynamics. She’ll tell us how to identify a toxic relationship, and help to us to know which ones to clean up, which ones to let go of, and how to know when we're the one who are toxic. --> Goddess Detox: Toxic Relationships Michelleread more
Detox series? Yep. In light of all this talk about organizing my life and figuring out what it truly means to be a goddess, I’m cleaning house, listeners…and I’m starting with my head! For part one of my series, I talk about toxic thinking and old paradigms—flushing my mind of reoccurring thoughts that no longer serve my betterment. “I’m not good enough, smart enough, and people don’t like me.” Sound familiar? Well if you’re still telling yourself the same stories you were in high school, you need this as badly as I do. Grab your journal and join me this week as I talk to author and spiritual counselor, Shelly Smith. She’ll tell us where our thought patterns come from, how to identify the ones that hurt us, and what we can do to detox ourselves of them!

What is it about organization that makes me want to pull my hair out? Everything. But lately I’ve come to the grim realization that choosing to stay disorganized is not only costing me time and money…it’s getting in the way of my success. That’s not okay, folks. So this week on Goddess, I’m saying goodbye to my mismanaged chaos…or at least, I’m going to try. After I vent to my husband about all the ways I need to improve, I talk to Paige Webb, a productivity specialist with The Effective Edge. She’ll share some tips on how to write an effective To-Do List, how to go about executing it, and lastly, she’ll share how her company is helping the world get organized—one hot mess at a time. -->Hot Mess, Party of One I'm off to make my To-Do list...if only I could find a pen.
