I’m excited to share with you guys this great podcast I did recently with the awesome Lewis Howes. We had an incredible conversation about what I believe is the key to my success and lessons I’ve learned on my journey to where I am today. We also discussed my inspirations, motivations, disappointments and fears. It was definitely my most candid interview yet. It felt so good to be that vulnerable and real in an interview.
My dressing room for Dancing With The Stars came with necessities such as a chair, vanity and small couch but it lacked one thing: personality! Much like a dorm room or office, I spend a lot of time in there, so of course I want it to feel as comfortable, cute and as home-away-from-home as possible.
Right now I’m loving my over-the-knee black boots! They go with everything from a cute dress to a pair of jeans or even with leggings. They instantly dress up a casual outfit, making a pair of jeans with a plain tee look chic and fashion forward.
As you now know, I love anything that you can throw on that will pull an outfit together, and these boots are definitely in my arsenal.
How many of us have read something that made us feel badly about ourselves — whether it was a text, a not-so-nice email, or a rude comment on social media? Imagine that happening every single second, and it being posted publicly, for millions to see.
On last night’s Dancing With The Stars, we saw Charlotte McKinney run out of rehearsal in tears after she read some of the hurtful comments about her on social media. My heart went out to her because I know this feeling all too well. What a brave and awesome move it was for Charlotte to put that behind her and get back out there, right? Online bullying happens every day to everyday girls. Whether ten million people, ten people or just one person (you) reads it, it doesn’t matter. It all hurts the same. Tom Bergeron said last night that it doesn’t take any courage to sit behind the screen and say hurtful things. I absolutely agree! It takes courage to do as Charlotte did and keep on dancing, doing your thing.
As you guys know, dogs are pretty much my thing. So I take today aka National Puppy Day very, very seriously. Puppy Day is not just about celebrating the greatness of your furry friend. It’s also all about protecting all pups, loving them properly, and making a difference for the dogs who don’t have a loving place to call home.
We had a lot of rescue dogs growing up. My mom has a heart of gold! She would go to the pound literally every week to bring supplies to the animals. She wanted to make sure they were either getting picked up from the families who had lost them, or they found new places to call home. I remember once when I was around six years old, my mom came home with a Dalmatian she named Lucky. She arrived to the shelter twenty minutes before they were going to put him to sleep because nobody had claimed him. So that’s how we got lucky with sweet Lucky!
My wonderful friends over at Kind Campaign have issued a challenge to their followers, and I think we should join in, don’t you? There’s no better thing to do this weekend than to show someone you cross paths with a little kindness.
I did a Facebook Q&A this morning and I can’t believe how many wonderful questions you all asked. I’m so grateful to have the best fans in the world! Here are 15 questions and answers from the session, edited slightly for website formatting.
Welcome to my cozy little corner on the World Wide Web! I wanted to design a space where I could connect with fans and friends about the things I’m most passionate about, and I wanted to be able to hear from all of you. This is a place where we can share recipes, workout tips, talk about style, beauty and home décor. I’m especially excited to talk to you guys about things that matter most, like ways we can all be rock stars in our communities and tips to become the best versions of ourselves.
This is a place for all of us, sort of like a fun digital neighborhood, and it’s important to me to hear from you. So, what do YOU want to see on my site? Let’s create something amazing together!
