All About Women

Happy International Womens Day 2019

In honor of International Women’s Day today, I thought it would be appropriate to mark this day with some inspirational women who are part of my tribe. They have all been amazing guests on “Nina’s Got Good News” Podcast, and they are making an impact in their communities every single day. They inspire me and they make me better. In my eyes, this day is all about women supporting, learning, lifting, encouraging, helping, inspiring and celebrating other women.

Here’s To/Two Good Things in 2019

Acupuncture and Vitalibis

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope your 2019 is off to a great and positive start. One observation I have made is that there’s a lot of pressure in January to get everything going and get everything on track. And that, frankly, can overwhelm me. So I think February might be the new January for me, just sayin’! 🙂 I do hope you listened to my intentions, my goals and my vision for the new year on my “Nina’s Got Good News” podcast #26. Hopefully, it helps you think about your own journey and what lies ahead for you too.

I want to share two things with you that I am doing that are making my life better in 2019. My hope in sharing them is that they might also help you.

We Are Family ❤

Family Is Love

Our 8 year-old daughter said it best on her school assignment. “What is the best thing about the holidays?” She simply wrote down, “the best thing about the holidays is that it brings family together.” That simple reminder from our Boo was so perfectly said. The holidays are such a great time to reconnect and spend quality time together with family and close friends.  There’s nothing better! It’s such a good opportunity to slow down and enjoy time together.

Real Talk During the Holidays


This blog post is not exactly easy to write, but I am hoping by putting all this out into the universe, it will help others who might be experiencing similar circumstances and feelings. This “real talk” is what makes us real, authentic and honest. Sometimes, life can be heavy, and that is OK.

The holidays are so much fun and so special, but if you have lost a loved one, there can also be sadness and pain. I think it’s important to acknowledge and recognize that. Here’s the back story for me.

Giving Back Is Powerful

Giving Back

I am writing this with a full heart to say a BIG thank you for helping make our “Pouches with Purpose” initiative such a huge success.

It is because of all of you that we were able to donate 100 pouches filled with safe, clean, healthy products to the cancer patients at Norma Pfriem Breast Center in Connecticut. There is no greater gift than giving back to others. To be able to help someone else less fortunate than us is what makes this world a better place.
