Simple Seven

Hello there!   

I enjoy learning about other Authors, Artists & Entrepreneurs;  their lives behind the scenes , so I thought I'd share a couple of personal things about myself too! 

For my overall happiness & wellness journey, I 'strive' to achieve these 7 things daily. 
(Perhaps we have a few things in common!)

strive  /strÄ«v/
  1. make great efforts to achieve or obtain something.


1. Water 5 glasses/day + skincare
2. Flexitarian (Flexible + Vegetarian) & supplements (see below)
3. 8 hours:  Sleep (Member #5amclub)
4. 8 hours:  Business (Writing, Illustrating, Photography, Embassy of Ideas, Mentoring)
5. 8 hours:  Personal/Family/Friend Time/Gathering 
6. Daily Walks (with my Golden Doodle 'Vivian'), Light Weights & Mindfulness
7. Creativity, Reading, Fun & Kindness

Note:  I 'mostly' eat a plant-based diet.  
(Full disclosure here:  I have a thing for 'cake' and I love to bake!) 
I'm doing my darnedest to avoid sugar.

If you love cake and stories. 

"Vivian Kalman Kennedy"

Named after.....

Pretty, fresh flowers for my table every Friday.
(And love me some challah bread too!)

Speaking of baking.  
I have quite a pile of baking books!

Big fan of Alison Roman, Anthony Bourdain
and Jules Blaine Davis

I have a cookbook stack that I will share soon!

My personal at-home PANTRY = 'holistic apothecary' supports my wellness journey and looks something like this:  

'Renew' Vitamin E is my No.1 go-to supplement. 

Along with these pre/pro biotics digestive enzymes.

I take this collagen  at bedtime. 

MCT oil powder with grass fed ghee in my morning coffee.

I pop (B12 + Vit C + D + Zinc) 

I long for ritual baths / showers (epsom salts, botanicals, oils, candles, music)

I'm a 'tub enthusiast'

I drink coffee in the morning - this tea for afternoon/evening

I rarely drink alcohol (but if I do it's a gin & tonic, Canadian rye & soda or an ice cold beer)

Vishuddha (throat) is my whole life chakra

Crystals intrigue me

Skincare Morning/Night Serum (with vitamins, antioxidants and botanicals)

NOTE:  If we don't exfoliate we're wasting our hard-earned dollars on skincare!

I like quick, simple & minimal makeup.

My heart remains open to my art practice

Forest Bathing and strolls near water when I can

Podcasts are the best!

It's important to be generous because there are
people who need us to be generous.
Be Kind.
Be Loving.
Be understanding & non-judgmental.

Love this book!

Be gentle and loving to oneself.
Surround yourself with good friends.
Gather often.
