PREGNANCY ANNOUNCEMENT; 1ST TRIMESTER EXPERIENCE REVEAL

Written by , Posted in Beauty, Body, Mind, Sunina

 

20weekspregnant

12 purple roses for the month of December; 20 weeks pregnant ♀

So happy to finally reveal my pregnancy and to share some Mind Body Beauty topics on my experience so far.

To start, I am so happy and grateful for all of the blessings that have unfolded the past few years and all of the things that led up to it. Blessings are given to you when you are open for and truly ready.

I am currently in my 2nd trimester of 20 weeks/5 months and I am SO happy to be here because I am feeling great.

This post topic will be on the first trimester (Week 1-13/First 3 months).

So! Here we go. To say it in one phrase to describe the 1st trimester: ‘Beautiful Nightmare’. My husband Ray and I were so ecstatic, and while I was beyond grateful, I was also terribly sick, nauseous, fatigued, and bloated! Ha- all of the greatest things that come with the 1st trimester. To stay afloat I did my best to go on with my day to day activities. Here is how:

MIND: I wrote one serenity styled prayer in my moleskin and read it a few times a week. I also had affirmations in the notes section of my iPhone which I read nightly. Here is one example that I love: “There is perfect coordination in every part of my body because the Spirit of perfection is acting in and through me.” This specific affirmation can be used by anyone- whether you are pregnant or not.

BODY: I continued to work out and I think this is what saved me. Pre-pregnancy I did SLT once or twice a week, Yoga once or twice a week. During my pregnancy I did SLT at least once a week; Yoga at least once a week although some weeks were skipped. I felt really good while in class and did all workout moves as normal since I didn’t have a bump yet. During this time I got weekly body massages as well. I remained the same weight during the 1st trimester.

It is very good to try and stay in the same level of activity you are accustomed to once you get pregnant. It’s okay to ease up a bit but to stop completely  is not necessary nor is it benefical for you. It is most beneficial to continue on with your normal activities as long as you are mindful in your movements and confident in your workout.

BEAUTY: As soon as I found out I was pregnant I decided to become a monthly member of Ling Skincare so that I could see my esthetician every month consistently. I wanted to make sure I didn’t fall off the wagon with this one. During this time my skin was extremely dry and sensitive so I am glad I decided to get the extra help each month.

Below photo is at 10 weeks pregnant; no bump just a little more bloated than normal:

SUNINA x ALLY LOVE: 20 MINUTES OF BEAUTY

Written by , Posted in Beauty, Self-Care, Skin Glow

IMG_0040 IMG_0035 IMG_0037 IMG_0039

 

 

IMG_0041 Here is Part II of Ally Love and I’s beauty post; Part I can be found here. Ally know’s the importance of putting her mind and body at ease to achieve beauty seemingly effortlessly. She jets around New York on modeling shoots as a Wilhelmina model, is a Brooklyn Nets Host, and passionate devotee of all things wellness, so its no wonder she is also founder of ALLYLOVEBLOG.COM; It is all about empowering yourself and other women in the game, hence #LOVESQUAD – check it out!

I was so thrilled to have spent the day with her for all things beauty, we took our time to meditate (as seen on our last post), and to do a mini spa facial as well. We are both constantly on the go, so it is great to share with you a 20-minute self-care ritual that you can do for yourself at anytime. It’s about that glow on the go! Here’s what we did to achieve a quick glow while we were both on the go:

Step 1: Hello Kitty Narikiri Face Mask – these are so fun. I picked these up in Japan at a stopover in Narita Airport. It’s a super simple mask that contains water, soybean extracts, collagen, and other ingredients for brightening – perfect for a quick glow. Keep this on for just 15 Minutes.

Step 2: A nice mist after the mask to serve as a toner: Whamisa Olive Leaf Mist – This is one of my favorites to keep around with me at all times. I take them around the city with me and even spritz while teaching, after working out, or anytime i just need a little pick me up or glow in the skin.

Step 3J.One Hana Cream – These little capsules are just the right amount to give you full moisturizing coverage. It is a dramatic anti-aging cream. Use this after you pat your mist dry. Use gentle circular motions.

And, don’t forget your SPF if you are headed outside while the sun is still out! And you’re done!

xx love & light.

BEAUTY BENEFITS OF MEDITATION

Written by , Posted in Beauty, Happiness, Inner Purity, Inspiration, Mind, Self-Care, Skin Glow

IMG_0024

IMG_0032 IMG_0036

Ally Love (Ally Love Blog) and I had a spa session just in time for our birthdays! (Happy Birthday Ally!) We split it up into two parts: Mediation and Skincare. (The skincare post will be up on Friday). For included meditation into our beauty focused spa session because we know, love, and feel the importance of meditation for our healthy glow. Here is a curated list of what meditation means to us for beauty.

The Beauty Benefits of Meditation:

Slows Aging, as you meditate you bring energy (prana aka life) and fuller breaths into your body. It pumps more oxygen into the places that are tight and weak, it also brings a glow to your skin. You may notice after some time meditating that there is less tension in your face and you can really feel the difference when you are done. Breathing mindfully transforms the tissues and cells in your body. It brightens your complexion and makes you look and feel younger; working that natural glow from the inside out!

Builds Confidence, meditation keeps your mood even and calm, giving you an even keeled demeanor. It can instantly improve your mood and this builds your self-confidence as well. Meditation helps you get to know your true self, and when you know yourself you can only shine bright with confidence.

Healthier Choices, when you make mediation a habit you build your awareness muscle. As that muscle gets stronger you are more in the moment with everyday life which gives you the benefit of making better and healthier choices. It is when we are mindlessly moving through life that we make not so great choices that could effect our health. And, health is not only wealth-  but beauty as well.

xx love and light.

INSTANTLY ELEVATE YOUR WORLD

Written by , Posted in Beauty, Clarity, Inner Purity, Mind

IMG_0018

IMG_0013

FullSizeRender

Heightening of your inner world will instantly elevate the reality of your outer world.

However, easier said than done, right? Especially if you have not yet built the awareness around what holds you back from elevating your world instantly. How aware are you of your emotions and how it could take control of you. For this post, we will call it ‘shadow’, ie. your dark side, the heavier side of your emotions. First we identify what the shadow is, the ‘thing’ that holds you back from elevating your world.

Shadow Main Ingredients:

  • Secrecy – not to reveal basic desires
  • Shame
  • Judgement
  • Blame
  • Projection
  • Separation
  • Enemies
  • Struggle – constant state of inner vs. outer warfare

The result of your shadow is war, struggle, and unnecessary drama.

The solution to uncreate the shadow by accepting your duality of light and dark. It is to be aware of your shadow and to acknowledge it. Instead of allowing shadow to take charge, we must take charge as creators of our own lives.

Duality is where you are, your split self is your most damaging illusion. In other words, when you identify your bad side and your good side you’re creating a separation instead of saying both your good and bad is OK, they are emotions that you can identify with. You are not ashamed of your shadow. It is also the knowing that if you did not have your shadow you would not be able to experience light.

You also have choices. Choose to accept your shadow, here are the choices:

1.  Stop Projecting. Be open to your shadow, here are projection examples and what it truly disguises:

  • Superiority disguises your own fear of rejection.
  • Arrogance disguises bottled up anger, beneath that is deep seated pain.
  • Defensiveness disguises the feeling that you are unworthy and weak.
  • Blame disguises the feeling that you are at fault and should be ashamed.
  • Idealizing others disguises the feeling that you are a weak helpless child that needs protecting, also feelings of inferiority.
  • Prejudice disguises the feeling that you are inferior and deserve to be rejected. 
  • Jealousy disguises your own impulse to stray, or a sense of sexual inadequacy.
  • Paranoia disguises deap seated anxiety.

Make peace with your projections. Here’s how: alertness, willingness, openness, honesty, courage. Feel the fear, and say “I see you, you belong to me.” Make peace with your feelings. Once you feel what you have, you can choose to push it down, attack it further, judge it. Or you can heal the unwanted feeling, face it, and acknowledge it. Hopefully you choose the latter. If you do not heal it, it will persist.

2. Detach: I can get through this, I won’t feel better unloading on someone else, acting out leads to regret and guilt, i can be patient lets see if i can cool down, moods come and go even the worst moods, I know how to center myself.

3. Give Up Self Judgement: Every emotion is valid in some way but when you add self-judgement, any emotion can be damaging. Grant sympathy for yourself, and be understanding of yourself. The inner judge dissolves when you are kind to yourself, and you sympathize with your self. Let your sympathy flow.

4. Rebuild Your Emotional Body: keeping your emotional body as healthy as we keep our physical body. When we are not feeling nourished emotional we feel fatigued, anxious. Emotional body should remain pleasing to experience.

Mantra: The lightness of being.

Tips to Build Your Emotional Body:

  • Becoming more whole
  • Learning to be resilient
  • Dispelling the demons of the past
  • Healing old wounds
  • Expecting the best and highest for yourself
  • Adopting realistic ideals.
  • Giving of yourself
  • Being generous especially with your spirit
  • Seeing through your fears
  • Learning self acceptance
  • Communicating with your higher self

Awareness and consciously choosing your thoughts in order to elevate your world instantly takes some not so instant work:) Keep going!

xx love and light.

3 SIMPLE WAYS HOW TO UPLIFT YOURSELF FROM A WINTER RUT

Written by , Posted in Clarity, Happiness, Inspiration, Mind

IMG_3139  

 It is February, right at the heart of winter in New York. Some winter months I tend to get a wave of unmotivated energy – any one else out there? It is the month that I have to pump up my self-care: pump up my meditation & yoga, work out efficiently (thank you SLT), pay special attention to how and what I eat, and take extra special care of my dry skin.

Here are 3 simple steps to unwinding out of your, dare I say, rut:

Come back to your center: meditate, do yoga, eat clean. Do lots of yoga positions that are uplifting the heart (upward facing dog). When you repeatedly remind yourself of your truth, and when you count all your blessings a rut is impossible.

Get your energy back: for extroverts, surrounding yourself with a lot of friends re-energizes you. For introverts, surrounding yourself with a few that you love is just enough, and mostly quiet time to recharge your energy is what you need.

Wake up earlier: when you are in a rut, you tend to wake later, start your day later, and it becomes a downward spiral of rushing through the day when you have things to do. Start your day earlier and have ample time for the things you want to accomplish for the day.

xx love & light

INTENTION ENERGIZES; ACTION TRANSFORMS

Written by , Posted in Body, Clarity, Inspiration, Mind, Strength, You

Image by Andy Hur: @THEWHELMING

Image by Andy Hur: @THEWHELMING

Intention energizes; action transforms.

What is my real intention? This is the question I had to ask myself subconsciously the past few weeks when I’ve felt an energy block. Work wasn’t flowing so easily, opportunities seemed blocked. I had to look inwards and call out my intention. What I realized was that I actually did have a lot of opportunities in front of me. I just wasn’t recognizing each opportunity with its own unique possibilities. I was dismissive. I had my mind set on my own set of outcomes. When I released the idea of exclusivity, and of only doing jobs based on how ‘cool’ it would be for me, the block seemed to slowly release. I started to open up and embrace jobs that were more based upon the big picture, the jobs that would further my purpose which is to inspire, uplift, and cleanse- and this can happen in as many places and platforms that I am able to effectively. It is not at all about me, nor is it about ‘branding’. I put my ego to the side. It gave me a renewed energy to go out and get it- or in this situation.. give it, and to take action on the true intention.

Action was missing because I was so in tune with ‘branding’ and only waiting for jobs that were of a certain tier. I looked beyond my high expectiations, and saw what the real opportunity would be in each and every one of the inquiries for work/collaborations I already had in front of me. When I have my true intention in mind, the work in front of me feels exciting. And when it feels exciting, you should definitely do it! I decided to take action and, like Nike, just do it.

Slowly I see and feel a transformation and feel supported- and almost immediately after this shift, I open my email and I get more favorable inquiries. The block was released. Recently I’ve noticed signs, I kept seeing the numbers 777, which according to spiritual numerology, is a ‘sign that I am on my authentic life path and making progress towards accomplishing my purpose’. My energy now feels balanced and my perception has shifted.

If you feel blocked, I encourage you to look inwards at your own intentions for doing what you do. If you feel you are at a standstill in your work, relationship, or life in general, set your ego aside and ask yourself why you do what you do. What is your intention? Then, take action on that intention to experience transformation.

MY DREAM WEDDING: 30-DAY MIND BODY BEAUTY PLAN

Written by , Posted in Beauty, Body, Love, Mind, Sunina

When I first started wedding planning I knew exactly how I wanted it to be, and what my dream wedding would look like: stress-free! Which is why the first vendor I hired was a wedding planner. I could care less about the ‘dream dress’ the ‘dream flowers’ the ‘dream etc etc etc’. All I knew is that I had my dream man, and that is all that counts 😉 I kept my expectations very low, but was very decisive and selective about quality within the choices I had. My planner would say, “You are the most zen bride- – that requests all the most fabulous things”. Precisely..

Day of the wedding, I kept telling myself to be in the moment, be present. I am glad I did because there were some amazing moments I was able to take in fully.

Here is what I did to get my mind, body, beauty as best as it could possibly be. (I did not change much in what I usually do, however I was definitely way more careful and conscious of what I was doing, making sure I was getting enough sleep, etc.)

30-Day Wedding Preparation:

  1. Mind
    Meditation daily with affirmations
    A Course In Miracles Reading twice a week + Yoga once a week – self practice.
  2. Body
    SLT twice, just twice within the month- why only twice? Because SLT really works. And it works instantly. So I knew I had to keep it at a minimum as I like my shape a specific way. I don’t like to look too ‘cut’.
    Green Juice + Watermelon Juice and/or Acai Bowl everyday.
    Frank Bod Body Scrub – twice a week.
    Korean Spa + Scrub – once every 2 weeks.
  3. Beauty
    Affirmations every other day.
    Eye Mask + Sheet Mask everyday Leaders InSolution
    Gel Manicure every 10 days.
    Eyelash Extensions one week before the wedding
    Glycolic + Enzyme Facial Peel (Triple Peel Facial) 10 days before the wedding
    IPL Treatment – 2 days before the wedding

Morning of Wedding Preparation:

  1. Mind
    Group meditation with bridesmaids + I led a prayer.
  2. Body
    Body Scrub (not a group effort 🙂 )
  3. Beauty
    Leaders Insolution Sheet Masks for all of us before hair & makeup.

FLATTERY = CRITICISM

Written by , Posted in Clarity, Self-Care, Strength

IMG_5587.JPG

Experiencing true self-love means both the flattery and criticism you are sometimes faced with have zero power to shift your self-perception.

You don’t get big in the head over flattery, you don’t get hurt by criticism. You honor yourself and only allow that kind of power be exclusive you.

Here are some tips to find this type of clarity separated into mind, body, beauty sections:

Mind
-Meditate
-Read your favorite books
-Release both good/bad judgement as they come to you.
-Greet the morning by counting blessings

Body
-Do Yoga.
-Eat Clean.
-Eat the gluteus things you love in moderation.
-Have healthy body goals set for yourself.
-Embrace body challenging workouts.

Beauty
-Take care of your skin morning / night.
-Learn and do your own at-home facials.
-Accept your ‘flaws’.
-Highlight your best features with makeup:)
-Enjoy being makeup-less when you want/can.

Xx love & light.

AUTHENTIC SELF

Written by , Posted in Yoga

WHO_7556_1 Be yourself.

When you are working for a ‘competitive edge’, trying so hard to be different, and plain simply being competitive with another person or a group of people, a business, etc.- you are not working from an authentic place. You are pulling from a place inside you that thinks some people are special and others aren’t. You are thinking levels, instead of acknowledging that no one being is above or below you. You are discrediting your own unique skills and talents.

The fateful excuse of ‘this market is saturated’, only leads to giving up before you’ve even tried. In any market, you will be different if you are working from an authentic place. You will have something completely unique to offer if you are just simply being your authentic self, because there is not one single person in the world that is exactly like you. Not a single person has the exact struggles, accords, familial upbringing, experiences as you do, that make you unique. Every tiny detail you may overlook about yourself are the collection of experiences you’ve had, lessons you’ve learned, that you are expressing everyday in the energy and vibes that you give. No one has the same exact touch, the same exact ideas, the same exact execution as you.

It is not what you do, it is how you do it. Everyone has something unique to offer, and a unique experience to share. Keep going:)

xx love & light.

MEDITATION FOR MODERN LIVING

Written by , Posted in Clarity

IMG_2957.JPG

Avid followers of Sunina know how important meditation and mindfulness are to our daily lives, but still there are people who find it hard to learn how to meditate, or appreciate what meditation can do for you. A service called Headspace, however, is seeking to change all that.

Headspace advertises itself as “meditation for modern living”, and one of the biggest reasons why it works is that it’s so accessible. The service guides you through developing a habit for meditation, acting as “your very own personal trainer… to help train your mind.” This is because research has shown that meditation and mindfulness exercises often affect the brain physically, reshaping it so you can better deal with stress, anxiety, and even insomnia. Users can listen to training and read up on information no matter where they are, or what they’re doing.

This is largely thanks to the fact that the service is available as a free mobile app. Headspace aims to make meditation accessible to as many people as they can, and with the company behind mobile gaming website Iceland Bingo saying that growth in mobile internet is the among the strongest trends on the internet landscape to date, the mobile industry seems to be the way to do this. Their app has received stellar reviews, as well as some surprising celebrity support.

“It’s an app that teaches you how to meditate. It’s kind of genius,” Emma Watson tweeted to her followers when she started using the service.

It’s worth noting that the man who designed the app and the content used by the service really knows his stuff, too. 22-year old Andy Puddicombe traveled across the world to research meditation and even became a Buddhist monk before he returned to Britain to establish Headspace. So far, it’s gained quite a following, and a supportive community of millions of users means that using the service is a breeze to get used to.

The Headspace app is available on the iTunes App Store, Google Play Store, and Amazon Appstore for free, while subscriptions range from $12.95 a month to $419.95 for a lifetime membership.

10-DAY WAIST TRAINING + BRIDAL BODY BEAUTY

Written by , Posted in Yoga

FullSizeRender

In 2011, I bought this beautiful corset with boning detail with the full intention to use it as a primary waist-loss (not weight loss 🙂 solution. I did it for a total of 1 hour and never looked at it again. I wasn’t so turned on by how hard it was to get into and how much of an effort waist training is.

Recently, I’ve gotten engaged and I wanted to incorporate some sort of waist training back into my ‘bridal body beauty plan’, so I dug through the lingerie section of my closet and found this at the very bottom- ahhh. So pretty! Now with a renewed perception, and some adjustments I tried waist training again for 10 days. Here is my recent experience and tips:

  • It minimizes your appetite, so you do not overeat.
  • It’s recommended you wear this corset for 4 to 6 hours a day. I opted for 3 a day- much more manageable so I do not have to actually wear it out.
  • Try not have it on too tight to start, keep it slightly tight but not so much so that you feel entrapped (scary feeling if you tend towards feeling claustrophobic!)
  • Get the type of corset that has boning, it is much more structured for a better fit.
  • Waist-training is not a primary source of losing weight or waist:) What really works? SLT! Maybe I am biased but working out is what will get you the results, waist training is a gradual, time-consuming process.
  • You have to be committed to win it! What are your goals? Be precise before you start. Measure yourself. Work out, eat healthy. Waist training is not the primary solution:)

This is not only about how many inches you can lose off your waist or how tiny you can make it. It is about your empowerment as a woman to have the curvatures you love. I was reminded of it when I saw how beautiful, feminine, empowered, and confident CINDERELLA (Lily James) looked in a corseted gown.

In other news, after spending the Winter isolated, I’ve come full circle and was reminded of how grateful I am of EVERYTHING the world has to offer. This includes this once in a lifetime period that I am living in engagement bliss- so I should be sharing my moments and my love for self-care for the mind, body, beauty. I’ve created a hashtag where I will be sharing some of my self-care efforts to feel my best in time for my big day! Very excited, stay in the light xo

Love & Light.

WINTER HEALTH: TOP 7 APPS FOR PEACE OF MIND

Written by , Posted in Beauty, Body, Mind, Sunina

sunina_alwaysready_4

Being able to book doctors through apps straight from my phone has helped me so much this past February. I don’t know what it is, but this weather has gotten me so flustered! Staying healthy is a chore on it’s own when it is 7 degrees out with hail shooting at you from the sky every other day, but the speediness of technology has really supported me in continuing a healthy lifestyle even through this tough Winter. Some companies, like Oscar Health Insurance in New York and New Jersey, have apps that let their members book doctor’s appointments, refill prescriptions and even talk to a doctor on the phone anytime through a “Doctor on Call” feature. I realize if you take advantage of technology in an efficient way, we are all able to do it for optimum health. You are able to book fitness classes, have peace of mind and book a glam squad to come to your house if you are going to an event. Do yoga through an app, book a car through an app.. I’ve even been able to keep my home clean when I am not able to pick up after my own mess with an app too! So much can be done to keep the clutter out, so that I can focus my energy on my work, on the inner well-being of my mind. I put together my top 7 apps that were fitting for me that has helped support the well-being of my mind, body, and beauty routines more recently::

1) ZocDoc the most painless way to book your doctors visits.

2) MindBody to book your fitness classes.

3) Yoga Studio for a ready-made yoga classes.

4) Calm – Meditate, Sleep, Relax for guided meditations.

5) Glam Squad – The glam squad comes to you!

6) Homejoy for a clean home.

7) Lyft for an alternative to Uber.

 

xx Stay on top of your health even in the Winter!

YOU ARE WHAT YOU SEE

Written by , Posted in Attractive Energy, Beauty, Body, Clarity, Inner Purity, Inspiration, Mind, Sexy Tone, Yoga, You

yoga updog

What do you see? You are what you see. When you see qualities in a person that stand out to you, those are the very qualities that you intrinsically have whether you are aware or not. The very qualities that you find sour, are the very qualities that you’d like to approve on yourself. The next time you make a snap judgement or become aware of someones qualities that you either admire or don’t admire so much, take note and let that be a tool for yourself to self-reflect.

What are some qualities you’ve recently seen in a person or a few people which you love? Name 10. Can you say these are qualities you also have in yourself? If not, what are some ways you can open yourself up to becoming those very qualities you admire.

Here are 10 I’ve recently admired in a few people: a warm smile, humorous, charismatic, good energy, confident voice, passionate in movement, emotionally independent, a leader, kind, effortlessly sexy!

Surround yourself with those that ignite this part of you! That part of you that makes you want to be a brighter you.

It’s in you!
