Women's Expo Recap

 Subscribe in a reader


Free Health Event


Over 2,500 women of all ages visited the Torrance Marriot South Bay in Torrance, CA, on Saturday, February 4, for a day of wellness information, pampering, free health screenings, fun, and much more at the 3rd annual Daily Breeze Women's Expo.

Sunrider was one of dozens of local vendors who came to share their products and services at the Women's Expo. I am a part-time Sunrider distributor and love their high-quality natural products.

A real hit with the ladies were Julie McLewee's makeovers with Kandesn® and Oi-Lin® products! 
If you missed this event, but would like a complimentary facial or makeover, contact Sandra Diaz at Sunrider at to make an appointment. Tell her Ingrid referred you. (O) 310-222-90169, (Cell) 323-246-3016

P.S.  Join Healthy Active Long Beach and ReTHINK your drink at Kids in the Kitchen, Saturday 3/10/2012 at Martin Luther King Jr. Park (10am-2pm). 

This free community event, cosponsored by the Junior League of Long Beach, will feature healthy food sampling booths, interactive nutrition education, activity stations and obstacle course, health screenings, a bicycle safety rodeo and information and resources from partners throughout Long Beach. In addition, Radio Disney will be there along with Potter the Otter from the FIRST 5 LA Best Start Project and Miss Kellee from KidTribe will get everyone hoopin' and having fun with two Hoopapalooza shows!

Hope to see you all there!

I was teased for my big fat appearance as a child and teen. I went on an extreme diet and exercise regime because I hated being called "Fat Girl".

Listen for the Gold

 Subscribe in a reader


e-Book

Love is a function of communication and self-expression.  It has to do with how you listen. Are you an active and attentive listener? What is it like to speak to someone who doesn't listen? Do you spend time getting into the other person's world? We don't spend time out here in reality with other people because we're focused on our internal dialogue or story. Do your relationships happen in what isn't being said?
My take-away from Landmark Forum on Wednesday 2/22: Listen for the Gold is confirmed by an email from The Art of Love -
  • Listen like they are the most important person in the world to you.
  • Listen so they feel totally seen and heard.
  • Listen for and from love.
  • Listen like it matters.
  • Listen like it will save my life.
  • Listen like a lover on a first date.
  • Listen without an agenda.

We discover each other in language. Love is something that's expressed in words and actions. Practice listening more to other people. I intend to focus on loving, accepting and understanding my parents without expecting anything in return because I want a better relationship with them. What do you intend to do with your loved ones?

The Interrupters Youth PROMISE Action Viewing Parties:  The Interrupters, one of the most critically acclaimed documentaries of 2011, tells the moving story of three "violence interrupters" in Chicago who with bravado, humility and even humor try to protect their communities from the violence they once employed.  It is a powerful testimony of the work of violence prevention and the need for a more in-depth approach in our communities.  Click here to learn how you can host a house party to show the film and educate your network on what is possible in the field of violence prevention and how we can take action to make a real change.
