Tranquil Treasures

We are treasure chests with more jewels inside than we can imagine.—Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha

Did you know that there’s a private collection of tranquility tools over on my website?

Each tool—from mp3s, to yoga practices, to guided meditations, to downloadable manifestos and toolkits—is chosen to assist you on your journey.

You’ll find new inspiration stockpiled in this treasure trove from time to time. Soon you’ll see a “style” heading with tips on mixing and matching using my “uniform” (TranquiliT 2in1 fitted top and capri leggings) as an example, along with a yoga video, and self-care checklist.

If there’s something you’d like to see added, please let me know. Thanks for your reading and listening!

To access the treasures, sign up for my Love Notes sent every few weeks. Bisous. x

Practice self-care. Feel your feelings. Write an op ed, a letter, or in your journal—get these feelings onto paper. Support causes you believe in. Connect with others. Donate. Volunteer. Spread kindness. Eat dark chocolate. Celebrate successes.

Wishing you moments of ease as we move forward. You are loved and your voice matters. Bisous. x
