During BITE NW Arkansas I had the pleasure of sitting down with Chef Abby Milam! This was such a treat for me as I am a huge fan of everything she creates. The meatloaf sandwich and at LOUISE is still something I am dreaming of on a regular basis. LOUISE is a modern all-day cafe located in the Fieldhouse at Thaden Field that serves diner-style breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. LOUISE has both indoor and outdoor seating facing the runway, providing great views of planes taking off and landing as you enjoy great food! They have named their restaurant in honor of Iris Louise McPhetridge Thaden (1905-1979). Born and raised in Bentonville, she was a proud Arkansan and one of the greatest aviators of her time. So enough! Enough! Let’s get to know Abby a little bit better, shall we?!Read More
Happy May darlings!!!!
There’s no better feeling than booking that dream international trip that’s been on your bucket list forever…until reality sets in and you realize you’ll be stuck on a plane for countless hours first in order to get to your destination. And after reality sets in, every traveler’s two least favorite words consume the rest of their energy: Jet Lag. Unless money is no object, first or business class may not be a feasible option for you. Not to worry, I am all about 'roughing it’ in economy…but I do believe in doing in comfort and with a little bit of style!Read More
Deco Drinks across from LaFortune Park is something of a local institution. No matter what beverage you order, consider it heaven in a cup. You can find coffee, Matcha, Boba Tea, Chai, and loose leaf teas. I am absolutely obsessed with the beet lattes and the turmeric lattes because they have zero caffeine so they make the perfect mid-day pick me up! I have had to stop drinking so much caffeine after a bit of a health scare that you read about here.
You can also find the best avocado toast in Tulsa!Read More
I always love a good Q & A and it’s something you all really love too because these posts always get the best readership. So happy you enjoy interviews with my peers, mentors, and Pilates greats. For it’s maiden voyage, it’s an honor for me to be interviewing one of the sweetest girls I have ever met, Brooke Marshall. We met in the Club Pilates South Tulsa studio and really connected through our love of getting a good workout in and writing and photography. She loved Pilates so much she is now an instructor and I could not be happier for her!
So while everyone is figuring out which way they're going to get fit in 2019, we've had our answer for a while now.Read More
The first interview of 2019 is all about high vibrational beauty with the lovely Gloria from Ihloff Spa in Utica Square. And we have partnered with a great giveaway for one of lucky ducks too so be sure to catch the deets over on this Instagram post.
Gloria has always been propelled by whole body wellness. Years before health and wellness became the popular mainstay that it is today, Gloria understood what true health and beauty was about: balance, self-love and feeling connected to your own inner spiritual being. She is sharing her favorite recipes, rituals, and magic with us today!!Read More
Happy Wednesday dears!! You are in for a treat today, as I have been talking with Jared Permenter of c2 Woodworks.

Also sharing a delish Bolognese Bruschetta recipe at the end of this post for you too!!! You can see Jared’s board in action. HA!Read More
Anyone else receive a trillion Black Friday emails?! And now a trillion sale holiday emails for Christmas?! Anyone hitting the unsubscribe button?!
Ohh..I am definitely guilty as charged! HA!
But in all seriousness this got me thinking about my own brand and newsletter which I really need to get back into the habit of sending again especially for some of my email marketing campaigns. If I may 100% frank, I stopped a year ago because as soon as I sent them I would have at least 2-4 people unsubscribe and it really hurt my feelings, especially if one of the un-subscribers was a good friend whom I support in business. OUCH! Have you had that happen too? It is the worst feeling. Like the world is already cruel enough and I did not need to self inflict pain on myself….am I right?!Read More
Friends, I just got back from a two week long Thanksgiving trip to Houston and was able to unplug for a bit!! I so needed that too!

It’s no secret that I love female entrepreneurs!!
Jeana has such an incredible story and it's been so fun getting to know her fully! She is always direct, and honest. She always tells it like it is, doesn’t dwell, and instead always moves forward. So inspired by Jeana, I returned home and started brainstorming a shoot location and knew I wanted to feature her on Go French Yourself.Read More
Could not be more excited to make this Q&A live today because it happens to feature one of my best friends!
I am so excited for Katie and her new Pilates career.
Katie is our very own Tulsa girl with an infectious smile and genuine enthusiasm for the perfect Pilates move.
She discovered Reformer Pilates months ago while accompanying me for a class and it very quickly it became a passion. The principles of Pilates, the concentration and coordination came for naturally for her and she loved Pilates so much she decided to become a Pilates Instructor!Read More
When us goddesses spend so much on makeup, hair products, and clothes, it can sometimes be hard to spend a little more on a good perfume. After all, it’s not something you can see like a bold gloss, a fabulous new handbag or a new dress. But that’s the beauty of perfume. It’s invisible but it can make or break an image. I’m sure we all have a mother, aunt, grandma, or even a bestie in our lives who has a signature scent. You associate that smell with her, and it says so much. Maybe love, or caring. Maybe power and boldness. To me, Natalie Fragrance says CONFIDENT WOMAN-and embodies everything lady-like. This fresh, sparkling floral scent opens with an alluring combination of freesia, neroli, bigarde zest and rose oil.Read More
The vampire facial, otherwise known as a PRP (platelet-rich plasma) facial, has been widely debated ever since Kim Kardashian West underwent the procedure during an episode of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians spin-off, Kim and Kourtney Take Miami. ...
And I have been curious for a whole year and finally decided to try it a little over a week ago.
Note: The facial procedure was offered complimentary to me by Jenna Case. The review is 100 percent my own, candid experience.Read More
Pilates has improved my sports performance. My posture is better. I have an increased joint range of motion and increased muscle flexibility. I am building muscle tone everyday I practice. And pilates has helped my back pain and reduce my stress.
I found myself sitting taller. And I am always finding myself in neutral spine now!
Pilates builds a body awareness that translates into everything that I do now and I couldn't be happier.
So I have talked about Club Pilates in South Tulsa quite a but but today I want to introduce you to the Jenks location!Read More
