An Evening of Self Care at The Candle Bar

An evening of Self Care at the Candle Bar

Sold Out

So, let me tell y’all about how excited people must be to talk about Self Care and spend an evening indulging in it!! This event I’ve got planned SOLD OUT in the 1st weekend….before I even got a chance to publish it here on my website (cue my happy dance)!! What you see below is the draft I had ready to publish with the push of a button. The info still applies even though the ticket sales are closed and, of course, I will continue to share about self care leading up to the event 🙂

 

 

You’ve probably been hearing a lot about “Self Care” lately and rightly so. I’m so glad that the conversation has shifted from the need to be so busy that we run ourselves into the ground, to one of #SelfCare , rest, relaxation and rejuvenation!

The event I’ve got planned next is one that will focus on just that……creativity, rest, relaxation, and fun…..an evening at The Candle Bar!

The Candle Bar was created to share the unique experience of hand pouring a custom candle. Their sister brand, Paddywax, has been hand pouring candles for over 20 years, and they wanted to let us in on the fun!

At this candle pourings, you get to spend time with other women, enjoy light bites (and a cocktail if you’d like), learn something new and share a little bit about Self Care all at the same time!

Update: Tickets sales are now closed……….

Life is like a balloon

Life is Like a Balloon…..

 

Dr April Women's Empowerment

 

Life is like a balloon. If you never let yourself go, you’ll never know how high you can rise!

 

Relax, relate, release.

 

If you’re a type A personality like me you are a planner, an organizer and like things to go just as you’ve planned them. What I’ve learned over the years, though, is that sometimes you have to just “let go” and let life play out! Some of the most amazing things that I’ve experienced in my life came when I surrendered, “let go” and had faith that things are always working for my good!

Life Is Sweet

Life is Sweet

 

Dr Carmen April Life Is Sweet

 

Life can be sweet and for me, Life Is Sweet!!! I recently celebrated my birthday and birthdays are always a time of both reflection and looking forward. I appreciate all that I’ve learned this past year. I appreciate every experience and every new connection made. I thank God for growth and expansion of my consciousness. I appreciate every opportunity I’ve been granted to help others. I appreciate the opportunity to LOVE.

 

Life IS Sweet!

The Wonders of Milk Thistle

The Wonders of Milk Thistle

 

Milk Thistle

 

Ever wonder what a “ thistle” actually is?! You’ve probably seen this beautiful flower out in a field or along a highway or country road somewhere. This flower is more than beautiful, it packs a powerful liver detoxification punch!

“As a liver support and liver aid, milk thistle is a powerful liver cleanser. It helps rebuild liver cells while removing toxins from the body that are processed through the liver. Milk thistle is effective at naturally reversing the harmful effects of alcohol consumption, pesticides in our food supply, heavy metals in our water supply, pollution in the air that we breathe and even poisons!” (Quote from Dr Axe online)

It’s one of the supplements I personally take on a daily basis ( I take mine in a liquid tincture form) as part of a healthy eating regimen.

The milk thistle plant, as is prominently displayed in the name and logo of Thistle Farms & Thistle Farms Cafe, is symbolic of the physical, mental and emotional detoxification process the survivors who are healed and rehabilitated through the Thistle Farms programs experience.

Learn more about Thistle Farms, hear from our Keynote Conversation guest, Nashville News Reporter Harriet Vaughn-Wallace, and network with other women during my upcoming Women’s Empowerment Luncheon on Saturday July 21st!

Punta Cana Bliss

Punta Cana Bliss

 

 

🌴 Ataraxia: A state of freedom from emotional disturbance and anxiety; tranquillity

🌊 Relaxing in and by the water is one of the most rejuvenating practices for me. Punta Cana was the perfect vacation to feed my soul. We learned new Spanish words, ate the most delicious fresh fruits & veggies my heart desired, many which are grown locally on the resort property, danced in the pool for hours, dipped my toes in the ocean, learned about Dominican culture & way of life and enjoyed the Yhi Spa several times. I’m always grateful for new experiences and the blessing of enjoying life! I don’t take any of it for granted…. #Grateful

Figure Out What’s Really Important

Figure Out What’s Really Important

 

Dr. Carmen April

 

When you figure out what’s important in to you in this life, it’s easy to let go of what’s not. I can’t be everything to everybody and still be happy with myself so I’ve learned to focus on what’s important and let everything else fall into place as they may.

Where do your priorities stand? Do you feel pulled in many different directions and finding that you aren’t at peace with where those paths are taking you? If so, it’s time to make some changes! Make a list of the things/activities/roles in your life that are most important to you. These reflect your CORE desires. These are the big rocks you put in the bucket 1st. Everything else, the smaller rocks and the sand, fill in AFTER your priorities are taken care of. If you fill your bucket with the small rocks and sand first, there will be no room for those things most important to you. When you learn that you can count on yourself, nothing else counts!
