Tenley’s Wedding Planning Series: Our First Look

The Decision…

I never thought I’d want to do a first look. I’m one of those wedding goers that loves to watch the groom as he sees his bride at the end of the aisle for the first time. And I absolutely did not want to take away from getting to experience that myself.

BUT… When our own wedding planning began, I started imagining dreaming of just the two of us getting to have a moment together before the wedding. I started thinking about what the whole day is about… the two of us, and the commitment we were making, but how hard it would be to get to have an intimate moment just “us”. As the details of our day started to come together, we realized how quickly the day would fly by and the time spent with our guests would be cut short if we were to save all of our pictures …

Tenley’s Wedding Planning Series: The Dress

The dress. The beautiful gown the bride will be wearing the first time she see’s her groom. The gorgeous options of silk, taffeta, lace, tulle, etc. that little girls dream of dressing up in one day. It’s an important detail to the wedding day and I personally think a special rite of passage getting to try on all the gowns and step into that bridal role. And I’ve been wanting to share my personal experience and a few tips, especially because we gave ourselves a unique situation by choosing to plan our wedding in just about 15 weeks! Ah! So if you’re worried about getting your dress in time, I hope some of my tips at the end will have you covered. But First…

The First Gowns…

The first moment I tried on dresses was the day after we got engaged! Woo! No wasting time over here. It was a last minute …

Tenley’s Wedding Planning Series: Sonoma Bachelorette Weekend Part 2

Beauty & Fashion / Favorites / Gluten-Free Me / Healthy Living / Miscellaneous / Personal / Travel

Where to begin when planning your Bachelorette Weekend?!

I’m going to be honest with you, getting started with planning my Bachelorette Weekend was probably one of the biggest stressors for me and my girls. One, because I didn’t give us very much time to plan…getting engaged in January and planning a wedding for the end of April didn’t give us many weeks to plan, and not a whole lot of weekends to choose from to get away. And the second reason Bachelorette weekend planning was such a stressor was the question “where can we go?”.  And third, once we picked Sonoma, there were sooooo many options of where to stay, what to do, how we’d get there, etc. So that’s why I’ve decided to share this blog post with you! I needed something so straight to the point to help us navigate and plan the weekend, I hope this can be that for you. Wether or not you’re just …

Tenley’s Favorite Simple Coffee Upgrades!

Coffee

The fact that I love coffee is no secret! And some are surprised by my daily cup as I work in the holistic health  and wellness world. Coffee isn’t all that bad, but there are a few reasons why I may personally take a break from time to time, or even suggest my clients to slow down their coffee consumption.  (More on that in a future post!) Truth is, over the years, I have made some HUGE changes with how much coffee I consume and what is in my cup.

Upgrading what is in your cup can actually boost your energy even more throughout the day vs. slow you down-which most of our coffee drinks actually do. These simple upgrades can also help you lean out your mid-section, as most of the additions we’re adding into our fancy coffees are slowing down our metabolism… and all those sugary and milky substances like to make themselves at home around that waistline. …

My lifestyle is all about living clean. My Sweet & Free Lifestyle isn’t just about feeling your best on the inside, but feeling clean on the outside is just as important to me. I’m much happier if I can feel my best on the daily.

My days are very full, but not with just one thing. On any given day you’ll find me running, then off to the store, and then off to see clients, then to barre class, and often a night out with my girls or a special date night with my “mega babe” boyfriend. Which naturally can leave me feeling… well, less than fresh. (I’m talking sticky, hair frizzy, and stinky too!)

I thought it would be fun to share with you my Day To Night Pamper Tricks! I’ve made it super easy for you with my Top 3 tried and true go-to’s when it comes to feeling my best! I carry all of these …

So it’s getting close to my birthday!! I love celebrating and I will never deny that I’m turning one year older… but then again, I will be one year older! Haha. But age is really just a number, right? (you should all be nodding your heads yes, thank you.) Truth is, as the number of my age has been going up, I am honestly feeling younger. Healthier, more energetic, balanced, and a lot more confident in my own skin, which allows me to love life so much more!  This all has to do with lifestyle. So here’s a little lifestyle upgrade for all of you…

Naturally with age comes the question… what will change? What will go south? And sure, things may change as time goes on, but for right now I feel like I’m thriving!

One thing that I especially want to …

My Ode to The Bachelor

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,

“Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Six years ago a very broken girl showed up in Los Angeles for a very unknown adventure ahead. Broken, but hopeful. She had no clue what was in store, and would have never imagined what would actually take place and how it would change her heart, soul, and her life all together. The thought that this adventure could possibly help her put the broken pieces back together, would have never crossed her mind, but that’s exactly what happened.

Six years ago that broken girl was me. My world as I had known it had crumbled all around me. My heart was broken into fragile little pieces, and I had no clue what could possibly be ahead. There was fear in not knowing how the healing process would go, and a fear …
