Ty-Ty, Lena, Yonce And Jenna: No-Bullshit Business Advice From Babes You'd Like To Be BFFs With

This is an awesome time to be a badass business babe! It seems like everywhere I look, women are doing amazing things. I am perpetually inspired by seeing what other women are creating in the world, and instead of comparing myself with them (a hopeless task), I focus instead on what I can learn from them.

As Tony Robbins says, success leaves clues. If you want to go big with your dream, it’s essential to pay attention to what other people do. You don’t need to start from scratch, and in fact, doing so is an enormous waste of time!

Below are a few great quotes from some badass business babes. The reasons I respect these women are numerous: they set bold goals and are on an unstoppable quest to achieve them, they do what they believe to be right, and they are all making plenty of money doing what they love. That, to me, is the modern dream!

s

“Bad bitches are taking over the world.” — Sophia Amoruso

LESSON 1. This is YOUR TIME. “One day” and “someday” will never come. It’s so easy to get sucked into the cycle of safely doing what needs to be done, and then you’ll wake up, you’ll be 65, and your life will have passed you by.

You may not feel like a bad bitch right now, but trust me, you are. If the people around you don’t make you feel awesome, go in search of people who do. Every single woman I spend time with is one who uplifts, inspires, and encourages me to be the best I can be. You deserve the same!

Ty-Ty, Lena, Yonce And Jenna: No-Bullshit Business Advice From Babes You'd Like To Be BFFs With

“I can never be safe; I always try and go against the grain. As soon as I accomplish one thing, I just set a higher goal. That’s how I’ve gotten to where I am.” — Beyonce

LESSON 2. Keep on pushin’. You might be at the very start of your journey, or you may have achieved plenty. It doesn’t matter either way: you can never rest on your laurels. It’s imperative to keep improving, keep refining, and exceed your own expectations.

This is not to say you shouldn’t celebrate your successes — doing so is essential! But once you’ve popped that bottle of champagne, spent the weekend in Miami, or rewarded yourself with a one-person dance party, get back on the horse. Figure out where you want to go next, write down the steps, and get to it!

Ty-Ty, Lena, Yonce And Jenna: No-Bullshit Business Advice From Babes You'd Like To Be BFFs With

“If your goals aren’t synced with the substance of your heart, then achieving them won’t matter much.” — Danielle LaPorte

LESSON 3. This is one of my favourite pieces of advice. If you’ve ever ticked something off your list and felt a big sense of nothingness, this one will resonate with you, too. It’s vital to set goals that really matter to you.

Danielle’s whole Desire Map ethos is based around figuring out how you want to feel, and then aligning your goals accordingly. It is a seriously smart way of creating a life rich with purpose.

Ty-Ty, Lena, Yonce And Jenna: No-Bullshit Business Advice From Babes You'd Like To Be BFFs With

“I think success is continuing to push yourself forward creatively and not sort of becoming a caricature of yourself.” — Lena Dunham

LESSON 4. When you’ve discovered what “works”, don’t rely on it. Avoid the trap of falling back on what you’ve always done, and what people expect from you. Sticking to the tried and true might be safe, but that’s the antithesis of growth and evolution.

Ask yourself, “How can I continue to push the envelope? How can I challenge myself creatively today? What can I do that no one would ever expect?” It’s imperative to find ways to make your work exciting. If you’re bored, so are the people watching you!

Ty-Ty, Lena, Yonce And Jenna: No-Bullshit Business Advice From Babes You'd Like To Be BFFs With

“I am a businesswoman who goes to work every single day.” — Tyra Banks

LESSON 5. If you want to master something, you have to be devoted to it, and you have to be prepared to make sacrifices to get it off the ground. Every single successful woman I know has had to turn down invitations because they had work to do. That is just how it is.

If you’re expecting your business or your art to flourish overnight without relentlessly tending to it, you are sadly mistaken. Wonderful things are only achieved when you are committed to them, so dig your heels in and devote!

Ty-Ty, Lena, Yonce And Jenna: No-Bullshit Business Advice From Babes You'd Like To Be BFFs With

“There’s this idea that everybody has to have everything right away. But you have to let the slow burn happen. I wasn’t the superstar. I had to work for it. Really long hours.” — Jenna Lyons

LESSON 6. Instagram would have us all thinking that overnight successes are popping up all over the world, and multiplying in the night. The truth is that it takes ten years to be an overnight success!

Remember, too, that appearances can be deceiving. Plenty of so-called successful people are privately struggling. If you’re not where you want to be, don’t sweat it. As Marie Forleo says, “If you want to be an overnight success, you need to be an everyday hustler.”

Ty-Ty, Lena, Yonce And Jenna: No-Bullshit Business Advice From Babes You'd Like To Be BFFs With

“You’ve got to trust people. And because I am a control freak, sometimes that’s difficult for me, because I want to micro-manage absolutely everything. I can’t hand over. But I’m trying to do that more.” — Victoria Beckham

LESSON 7. No (wo)man is an island, and no matter how smart, efficient, or self-sacrificing you are, you will never get as much done alone as you would with a team.

If you, like Victoria Beckham, suffer from Control Freakitis™, you have to learn to let it go. Slowly begin to delegate small, non-life-or-death tasks, and grow from there. I promise that if you can get the hang of collaborating and delegating, your creativity, productivity, and income will absolutely skyrocket!

Ty-Ty, Lena, Yonce And Jenna: No-Bullshit Business Advice From Babes You'd Like To Be BFFs With

“No matter where you are in life, you’ll save a lot of time by not worrying too much about what other people think about you. The earlier in your life that you can learn that, the easier the rest of it will be.” — Sophia Amoruso

LESSON 8. You know the old saying: “Opinions are like assholes: everybody’s got one.” When you’re doing unconventional things, you’ll quickly hear about it from others. If you listen to everyone, you’ll end up discouraged, demotivated, and pissed off!

You can get around this by making a list of people whose opinions you really value. My list has about 5 names on it, and I encourage you to make yours equally brief! As long as you worry what your family, friends or foes think about you, you will always be their prisoner. Throw off those shackles and do your damn thing!

Ty-Ty, Lena, Yonce And Jenna: No-Bullshit Business Advice From Babes You'd Like To Be BFFs With

“My focus is my art, and that’s what I love to do. I have to be really passionate in order to do something. I’ve turned down many things that I just didn’t believe in.” — Beyonce

LESSON 9. Learn how to say no! In the past 8 years, I’ve been offered hundreds — if not thousands — of opportunities, but sometimes, what you say no to is more important than what you take on.

It can be tempting to take the money and run, but you have to consider the long game. If you’re offered a project that doesn’t feel good to you, or you align yourself with something that goes awry later on, it can tarnish your reputation forever. You have to stay true to your vision!

Ty-Ty, Lena, Yonce And Jenna: No-Bullshit Business Advice From Babes You'd Like To Be BFFs With

“If you want to be EXTRAordinary, you will not get there by hanging around a bunch of people who tell you you’re not extraordinary. Instead, you will probably become as ordinary as they expect you to be.” — Kelly Cutrone

LESSON 10. Be picky about who you spend time with. Only give your love, energy, and attention to people who make you feel luminous and embolden you to pursue your dreams. The world is full of negative naysayers and fearful fatalists, and they won’t add anything useful to your life.

It’s better to be alone than surrounded by a flock of funereal frenemies. When you start changing your life, it’s normal to feel a bit lonely for a while, but don’t worry: your tribe is on its way! You just have to keep the faith.

Ty-Ty, Lena, Yonce And Jenna: No-Bullshit Business Advice From Babes You'd Like To Be BFFs With

“Amazing things happen when you’re having fun and doing something you love.” — Jenna Lyons

LESSON 11. Being able to have fun and do what you love is the ultimate sweet spot, and when those two things come together, truly magical things happen.

If you don’t love what you’re doing right now, either figure out how to make it fun, or start doing something on the side that is fun. When you hate your work, your whole life sucks. You deserve so much more than that!

Ty-Ty, Lena, Yonce And Jenna: No-Bullshit Business Advice From Babes You'd Like To Be BFFs With

“Life is short. Don’t be lazy.” — Sophia Amoruso

LESSON 12. Hell yes. You can sleep in, watch reality television, and dither around later. This is the time for action. If you have a dream, go after it! You will never have more energy or enthusiasm than you do right now, so don’t waste your energy on trivialities!

I believe in you, and so do Sophia, Lena, Jenna, Kelly, Beyonce, Victoria, Tyra, and Danielle. Go out there and kick some ass this year!

Love always,

10 Magical Ways To Make The Most Of Mercury Retrograde!

10 Reasons To Love Mercury Retrograde!

Mercury goes retrograde about four times a year — which, if you ask me, is four times too many! My old guide on How To Survive Mercury Retrograde is one of my most popular articles for a reason!

Well, I hate to be the one to break it to you, but Mercury is way retrograde… and I thought you might like to read about it from a different perspective.

There is a silver lining to every cloud, of course, and Mercury retrograde gets a bad rap. It’s not all terrible! I read somewhere recently that Mercury retrograde is a great time to take part in anything that starts with the prefix re-… Well, except “react”! This is the perfect time to refresh, revive, review, reboot, rebound, recall, reconcile, recover, reflect, recycle, reelect, research, refinish, refocus, reformulate… You get the idea!

Here are some ideas to keep you out of trouble, and on Mercury’s good side!

10 Reasons To Love Mercury Retrograde!Photo by Chris Craymer.

1. Renew your vows.
You lovebirds! If you’re already in a committed relationship, marriage or partnership, this is the perfect time to renew your promises to one another. You could have an elaborate ceremony or you could keep it simple: go to the restaurant where you had your first date, look at old photos, talk about how far you’ve come since you met. Bless!

2. Clean out your closet.
I did this last Tuesday and it was a bit of a life-changer! The energy of Mercury retrograde is fantastic for trimming the fat, so to speak, so you’ll have lots of astrological help as you go through your wardrobe and cull it mercilessly! If you need a bit of help doing it, check out my Wardrobe Taming series! (Blast from the past, baby!)

3. Look up an old love or your ex-best friend.
This is an excellent time to revisit those old relationships and see where the land lies. You don’t need to resuscitate them, of course, and often things we try to start during Mercury retrograde end up being short-lived anyway, but there can be a lot to learn from reuniting. You could find that the closure is exactly what you needed.

4. Forgive and forget.
Mercury retrograde encourages us to tie up loose ends, and the ultimate loose end is sourness or bitterness towards someone else. Holding a grudge is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die! It’s time to move on, and if you can’t forget, do your best to forgive.

10 Reasons To Love Mercury Retrograde!

5. Take a fabulous holiday.
Even though we’re usually not encouraged to travel during Mercury retrograde — simply because it’s something that is easily affected by the natural miscommunications of this period — if you can get away, you should! Honour any hankerings you might have for a bit of downtime. Go to a tropical island and lie on the beach for a week, or simply have a staycation at home. You’ll feel so much better for it!

6. Relax and take care of yourself.
The classic old checklist of getting enough sleep, staying hydrated and doing a lot of stretching absolutely applies during Mercury retrograde. If you’ve fallen off the H2O wagon, buy yourself a cute drink bottle and keep it on your desk! (I have a vampire drink bottle. I love it.) Make an extra effort to relax before bed, maybe by turning off the television and having an Epsom salt bath, and get your solid 8 hours. Get a massage, do some stretching, and move your body as much as you can.

7. Rejuvenate your living space!
If your house isn’t looking its best, now is the time to start dreaming about it! Your home should be a reflection of your most fabulous self: a place that you’re excited to return to. While it’s not the best idea to make big purchases during Mercury retrograde, it is a truly excellent time to do any research. Start investigating: look at Pinterest for interior decorating ideas, scope out websites for the best prices, and make a list of the things you’ll need. Once Mercury goes direct, you can start to put your plans into action!

8. Work on your CV or personal mission statement.
Mercury retrograde favours rewriting, revising or editing any documents. Why not put that energy to good use and rework your CV or personal mission statement? You could spice up your blog’s bio page or make some long overdue changes to your business plans. Mercury’s magic will help you out as you do it, and you might be astounded by what comes out when you sit down to start writing!

9. Read old journals.
If you go back to your old journals or notebooks during this time, you’ll be amazed by the things you read and the revelations that occur. It will be incredible to you to see how far you’ve come and how much growth has happened! (Plus, it’s usually pretty good for a laugh!)

10. Get a bit nostalgic!
Mercury retrograde is the best time ever to listen to old albums that you loved when you were a teenager, to watch movies that used to mean so much to you, and to revisit activities you have given up. Yesterday, I had a musical trip down memory lane, listening to Marilyn Manson, Sleater-Kinney, Deftones, and A Perfect Circle — all stuff I loved years ago! Why not jump back into that sport or activity you loved a decade ago?

See?! It’s not all bad. Mercury retrograde for a few weeks, so you have plenty of time to get all of this done! Okay… Ready, set, go!

(Still counting down the days…)

Essentials For A Magical Tropical Getaway

Essentials For A Magical Tropical Getaway

The rain is pelting down outside, submerging New York City beneath inches of frozen water and encouraging its inhabitants to stay safely inside. I’m sitting up in bed next to Mike, with Dolly curled at my feet, and we’re listening to Fleetwood Mac. It’s pretty cozy and pleasant, and life could definitely be worse.

That having been said, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a little bit over the cold weather. Next month I’m heading to Los Angeles (for Blogcademy), and then Las Vegas (for good times!), where the temperature is significantly higher. Then in April, I’m going to Tulum on the trip of a lifetime. Quite simply, I am aching to go.

I’m fantasising about the crystal clear water, soaking up the sun, and learning about the stars, of course. But I’m also thinking — a LOT — about what I’m going to pack. Swimsuits, cover-ups, sparkly sandals… Yes, it would be fair to say I’m obsessing, as well as steathily browsing eBay to find good deals on, well, all of the above.

If you’ve got a tropical holiday on the agenda this year, why not make it as wonderful as possible?

Essentials For A Magical Tropical Getaway

HEADWEAR
No holiday is complete without at least one good hat. My suggestion? Go for the biggest bonnet you can get your paws on. This hat with a coloured brim (and matching flower) is the definition of fabulous. This hat has an extra-large brim, and will spring back to shape even after you crumple it in your suitcase!

I heartily endorse packing a turban. You never know what is going to happen when the salt hits your hair! There are so many cute options. I love the Abbey Cap style, because it’s chic and a little bit different. Plus, they’re devastatingly glam! They do turbans with gold sequins, gold polka dots, silver sequins, black with sequin flowers, black sequins, and even standard black is gorgeous. Of course, if you want to keep it simple, you can always tie a scarf around your hair and call it a day!

I also recommend taking a baseball cap. I’ll be packing this cat-eared cap by Kate Spade with me, but I also support this, of course. (How could I not?)

P.S. Once you click the link, you might discover that you desperately need a fantastic petal-covered bathing cap. Resistance is futile!

Essentials For A Magical Tropical Getaway

SUNGLASSES
Sunglasses are perhaps the most important thing to pack. Otherwise, you’ll be all Squintenstein, and nobody wants to be that guy! Take a couple of pairs, so you have options.

Need help? You can’t go wrong with a bit of Karen Walker, studded or crystal-encrusted Prada frames, or two-tone Fendis. If you’re frame shopping on a budget, never fear! Try the Bueller ($20), these clear cat-eyes ($20), gold cut-outs ($31.50), or glittery heart-shaped sunglasses ($20).

Essentials For A Magical Tropical Getaway

SWIMWEAR
If you’re planning on doing a spot of surfing, you REQUIRE a psychedelic Mara Hoffman bodysuit (seen above), or at least a cosmic leopard rash guard. Cynthia Rowley’s colourblock wetsuit is SO good, too.

If, however, you prefer to simply lounge on the beach or beside the pool, who could blame you? This boy-leg mailott has old school glamour written all over it, and this mesh inset bikini is gorgeous! This graffiti-print bikini is sweet, Minkpink’s floral mirror print bikini is a hallucinatory wonder, and I love the simplicity of this pink neoprene halter bikini. If you’re on the curvy side, GabiFresh’s collection for Swim Sexy is AMAZING, and you can read all about the fit and details right here. (Go Gabi!)

Essentials For A Magical Tropical Getaway

BEAUTY PRODUCTS
You won’t need an orgy of beauty products when you go away on a tropical trip. The hot hot heat means that 99% of creams, lotions and potions will simply drip down your front, which is never a cute look. Sun-kissed and natural is always the best tactic. Also, the more prep you can do at home, the better. Eyelash extensions mean you won’t have to bother with mascara (or worry about it streaking down your face), and a gel mani/pedi is a great idea, too. Hint: use a neon polish, it’ll make you look more tanned!

You will definitely need: Sunblock (I like Neutrogena) Maui Babe Browning Lotion A jolly good exfoliator (e.g. ExfoliKate) to ensure sunblock doesn’t just sit in your pores for the rest of eternity! A deep conditioner (to combat all that salt) Tinted moisturiser (this is not the time for foundation or powder!) Two of your favourite lipsticks Rosewater for liberal spritzing!

Don’t forget your perfume either, but make sure whatever you take is light. Leave your heavy winter scents at home! (I’m ride or die for Vanille Extreme, though Coco Extreme or Aqua Motu would certainly not go amiss.)

Essentials For A Magical Tropical Getaway

DRESSES
Dresses are perfect for holidays, because you simply slip ‘em on and go. No muss, no fuss!

If you ask me, a floaty slip teamed with bare feet and a big hat is the stuff dreams are made of. Free People’s Eyelashes slips are perfect (I have one in Indigo Ink). I’m obsessed with this fiesta floral dress, too. This blue maxi dress with a harness back is the perfect thing to wear on holiday, while this crochet dress with tassels just looks adorable. I love this white maxi dress with bird embroidery too. Very “I just eloped”!

While the Strange Fire romper by Finders Keepers is a one-piece, and not a dress, it’s totally — in the words of Frenchie — divoon! Imagine the cuteness, cavorting in that on the sand!

Kaftans are even better than dresses: hunt them out on Etsy and eBay, and use keywords like “sequin” or “psychedelic” to find the best ones!

Essentials For A Magical Tropical Getaway

FOOTWEAR
A good sandal is hard to find, but you’ll need ‘em. Why not be a little different in a cute ombre style, or a Kate Spade jelly? (They even have rose embellishments!)

You’ll want something casual for the plane or any day trips you plan on taking, too. I’m all a-swoon over these holographic Converse hi-tops (so sick!) and these rainbow Mara Hoffman espadrilles. I want to wear rainbows on my feet!

Essentials For A Magical Tropical Getaway

MISC.
Swarovski crystal-studded friendship bracelets should be a summer holiday essential. (I wear mine every single day.) A good kimono will get plenty of use on a tropical holiday: perfect for throwing over your bikini and swanning around in; of course, I love this pink one! And a quick note from your always-prepared Virgo friend: always take an antihistamine stick for bug bites!

Finally, don’t forget to take a good disposable waterproof camera (or at least a waterproof phone case) for underwater selfies! A sea-selfie would be such a great image to blow up and frame!

Warm, sunshine-soaked dreams,

P.S. If all this has you lusting for an enchanting — and very warm — getaway, come and join me and the AstroTwins at their Become Your Own Astrologer retreat in Tulum, Mexico! I’m leading a radical self love new moon workshop, and I’d LOVE to see you there!

New Moon Magic: January 2015

New Moon Magic

Welcome to a brand new feature! This is New Moon Magic, a monthly column. I’ve teamed up with my favourite astrologer, Mystic Medusa, to uncover what’s going on, astrologically… And how we can harness that to make our lives much more magical!

Every month, we have a New Moon, and the New Moon is all about starting new projects, setting goals, and focussing your intentions. I am a firm believer that when we work with the energy of the Universe, life flows more easily, and we’re able to get things DONE with much greater efficiency. Astrological productivity = hardcore Virgo porn!

In this column, Mystic Medusa will tell you what’s happening in the sky, and I’ll tell you what you can do “on the ground”, like little rituals and daily actions, to make the most of it. I think you’re going to love it!

New Moon Magic

NEW MOON at 0 DEGREE OF AQUARIUS: JANUARY 20th/21st

L.A. – Jan 20 3.14am
NEW YORK – Jan 20 7.14am
LONDON – Jan 20 1.14pm
DUBAI – Jan 20 5.14pm
HONG KONG – Jan 20 9.14pm
SYDNEY – Jan 21 12.14am

IN THE SKY… (Mystic Medusa)

Any New Moon at Zero degrees are like a re-set Moon. They restore you and situations to “factory settings.” They are fab for re-committing to your REAL values and disengaging from any of the sludge that may have slowed you down or been blocking your light.

This New Moon is in Aquarius and conjunct the witch Asteroid Circe. Yes it is a powerful time to cast spells – perhaps a little ritual to let something from the past just go already. Or a massive goal-setting bender as close as possible to the time of the New Moon exact. Circe is wily energy and Aquarius is the sign of science, the liberated mind and reinvention by trusting in the future. That this comes with Mercury going Retrograde until Feb 5 and Uranus on the South Node of the Moon makes it a rad time to release the past at warp speed. Something begins but you’re keeping it clandestine or on a need-to-know basis until at least mid-Feb. Let the past/an old relationship go so you can enjoy the INTENSE fresh beginnings promised by the Eclipses of March. Don’t chase or pursue – pour energy into clever-clogs scheming and reinventing yourself with lucid, Aquarius, ultra-modern supernatural flair.

New Moon Magic

ON THE GROUND… (Gala Darling)

If you decide to do any of the following, my suggestion is to do it as close to the New Moon as possible (see above for exact times). However, having said that, don’t let a tricky schedule or plain old forgetfulness rob you of a joyful experience. The window will still be open two days later, and doing anything is better than nothing!

Here are some ideas.

Bring in what you desire

 This is a fantastic time to do a ritual. If you’re a beginner, never fear! Even though this is based around the Full Moon, these steps are still a great place to start when it comes to crafting a ceremony that is meaningful and personal.

 Buy a 7-day candle in a colour that corresponds to what you want. (There’s a quick guide below.) Every morning, when you wake up, think about what you want to create, manifest, and attract, and focus on that as you light your candle. Keep it burning all day.

Candle colours. White: purification and truth. Black: expel negativity, break habits. Pink: love, romance, friendships. Red: passion, sex, speed, courage. Yellow: communication, protection. Orange: attraction and encouragement. Blue: jobs. Gold: success, business, wealth. Silver: clairvoyance, intuition. Green: money, abundance, fertility, health. Purple: empowerment, dreams, ambition.

 Make a daily practice of visualising your desires, and as you see them in your mind, allow yourself to feel how you will feel when it all comes to fruition. Let that feeling build up in your chest and overwhelm you! Allow the emotions and excitement and pure joy to course through you. This is truly one of the fastest ways to bring what you want to you, because you’re moving into energetic alignment with it.

To let go of the past

On a piece of paper, write down everything you no longer want or need to hold on to. Take your time. Write slowly, feel the weight of the words as you scrawl them. Then SET IT ON FIRE! Watch it burn. Feel it lift.

Want to go even deeper? Glow more? Set fire to your journals, your old art, photos that dredge up unhappy memories. As Danielle said, “Traveling lighter helps me shine brighter.”

Write it on a lantern or a balloon, and send it up into the sky.

In the shower or bath, say aloud all the things you no longer need. Envision the water washing it all away, swirling down the drain and away from you.

Goal-setting magic

Use a killer guide to make setting goals, committing them to paper, and regularly reviewing them fun. My babe Leonie’s Create Your Shining Year In Biz + Life workbook is the best I’ve seen in a long time. Mine should be here soon, and I’m aching to dive right in!

Aquarius is all about the future, and so are New Moons, so this New Moon in Aquarius is extra, extra potent for making BIG plans. Invite your best friend over for a candlelit brainstorming session. Write what you want for the next 12 months in brightly-coloured marker on a large piece of paper. Pin it up next to your front door, so you can keep your goals firmly planted in the front of your mind every single day.

 Write your number one goal for the year on a slip of paper, and put it your wallet’s transparent pocket. Add in a teeny tiny crystal that symbolises your goal, too. Ta-da: magical wallet!


Will you be giving any of these a try? I would lovelovelove to see and hear about your experiences! Just post them to Instagram with the hashtag #radicalselflovecoven!

Love so massive it could crush you flat,
