Health secretTo have balanced blood sugar by eating healthy fats and protein with every meal and snack! This makes for clearer, glowing skin and reduces cravings as well :).

Advice for Brides-to-BeDon't take yourself too seriously! Let your hair fall out a little, dance so much that you sweat, eat lots of your delicious food, laugh when someone trips or the wind blows your veil in your face...just relax and live in the moment and know that the only real perfection possible is your love.
