Luxury Redefined: Yonder Way Farm

As I age, the term luxury is getting redefined for me.

When I was younger, luxury used to be strictly defined by anything with a designer label on it, whether it was a true luxury item or not.

However, as a 40+ woman, luxury is taking on a richer meaning for me and most of the time, there is absolutely no designer label, popularity or mass production associated with it.

One of those redefined luxury items is a Texas farm called Yonder Way Farm.

Yonder Way Farms resides near Houston/Austin and is run by a team headed up by a family that believes in ethically treated, sustainable meats and eats.

Besides offering grass-fed beef, pastured pork, eggs and poultry (corn/soy free), Yonder Way also partners with local artisans. These local artisans expands their offerings to organic vegetables to fresh pressed olive oils to Third Coast coffee and teas to breads to honey...I'm getting hungry just typing this!

And lucky for us in Texas, they ship to addresses all over Texas to provide access to those who may not otherwise walk into a Whole Foods to shop for the most top quality, organic, sustainable foods.

And one of the most brilliant parts is that their delivery is available starting at only a $50 minimum...simple, brilliant and ultimately, luxurious.

Picture Credit: Olivia Chan (@thelivstyle)

I met a new friend who is a blogger out of New York and when I saw these rust colored ankle boots by Marks & Spencer, I was in love!

These can literally be your only boot purchase for this season and it will keep you chic and force you to venture outside of your boring black (or grey or brown)...get chic for only $57!

Yassss!

Be Your Own Kind of Role Model


As the results of the recent election wrap up, I was greatly inspired by this quote from plus size model and beauty beyond size advocate Ashley Graham.

There are many great role models, including the gracious Hillary Rodham Clinton.

However, as I age, I'm reminded that one of the most powerful things we can also do is to be our personal best and believe in our own ability to become a role model...flaws and all!

You Are What You Are Attracted To


"You are what you are attracted to." - Bishop T.D. Jakes

If you are attracted to negativity, you are it.

If you are attracted to being world-class, you are it (even if you are not there yet).

If you are attracted to laziness, you are it.

If you are attracted to (authentic) beauty, you are it.

If you are attracted to goal oriented people, you are it.

If you are attracted to judgmental people and situations, you are it.

If you are attracted to kindness, you are it.

If you are attracted to peace, you are it.

If you are attracted to light, you are it.

If you are attracted to grace, you are it.

If you are attracted to hardship, you are it.

If you are attracted to health, you are it.

If you are attracted to joy, you are it.

Question: what are you attracted to?
