I Am A DoTerraholic! I Am Obsessed With DoTerra.

Hello Everyone,

I just had to shoot a video to describe my level of obsession with these doTerra products. I am not even kidding, it’s bordering on being a problem. I tried them as part of the Terrafit 90 Day Challenge that I am doing, and I accidentally fell in love with these products. My two current obsessions are Breathe Essential Oil, which I use before I work out, and basically whenever I want a little pick me up during the day, and Deep Blue Rub, which has been a God send for my sciatica.

If you have any kind of asthma issues or back pain that you are dealing with on a daily basis, then you have to watch this video. This stuff is off the charts amazing!

How To Take The Perfect Selfie.

Good Morning Everyone,

I was shooting images the other day, and it occurred to me how silly it is that we all shoot selfies. Don’t get me wrong and think that I am going to stop doing them,  I am not :-). I am just saying that we always look so different, or at least we try to only present the most perfect part of ourselves in these images. It’s all an illusion, and the perfection is really in the flaws, so I decided to celebrate mine.

I made a short video about ‘The Making of a Selfie’ and I stopped once per minute (on a timer, so it’s legit) and took a photo of the process, both hair and make up. I also added my thoughts about each step, and it is really cute. I hope you enjoy it, and it brightens your morning.

Now, Go Selfie!



OOTD: Cozy Travel Outfit of the Day

Here is another OOTD (aka…outfit of the day video) that I just posted on YouTube. Hope you like it. Don’t forget to layer up when traveling. Gratefully, Raphaela

OOTD: This Was My 1st Outfit of the Day on YouTube

OOTD? Oufit of the Day, so dubbed #OOTD by the internet gurus leading this trend online, is a way for normal people, like me, to share my outfits. I think that this is really important because everyone is always looking for inspiration to refine their style. I love so many of the outfits that I see online, but they are simply not practical for my day to day life. I try to show you outfits that are very wearable, and I always try to explain why I wear, or choose certain pieces, so that I can help you to understand not only my style, but how to define your own personal style.

It was my first video on YouTube, so let’s just say that lighting, and all of that were not wonderful, but these things come with time and practice. So, I have given myself permission to not get it perfect, and just get it started.
