Happy Thursday Everyone! I feel like I should really say Happy Friday Eve! Our town was hit by a tornado yesterday evening. It all happened so fast and we were pretty scared for a short while. We tuckered down together (Grand and I) along with the bulldog babies (Bucky and Barbie) in our tornado proof room of our home. The destruction happened a little over a mile from our home and Grant’s family had a few buildings that they rent out to other businesses damaged. Everyone is ok, and that is what matters most!
Anyways, today is launch day for a new group of arrivals at Southern Jewlz Boutique. If you’re new to following me, I started SJ while I was in college as a hobby business and grew it to a lifestyle brand boutique. The company moved online only in 2017 (right before I got married) and I sold it a few months ago to a precious new owner named Stormy who had shopped with me for YEARS! I do still help take product pics and create social media/other marketing content for the brand! I love still getting to be an influencer for a brand that I am so passionate about! I hope to help Stormy and Southern Jewlz continue to grow, flourish and be very successful in the future. Whenever you use my code “Randa10”, this allows you to save 10% on your purchase and it also allows for a trackable sale that I get credit on. I do a weekly try on session on my instagram stories usually every Wednesday to give y’all a sneak peek before the launch time of Thursday at 7pm! I want to give one lucky follower/reader a giveaway product of whatever their favorite item is! You can find out below how to enter!
As far as Randa Carrabba the Label, I am actually heading to LA in 2 weeks to continue moving forward on the new collection I’ve been putting together. You can see the timeless collection I launched last Fall by clicking HERE. Most items are either limited on sizes and inventory or completely sold out, but my goal is to truly create pieces that do not go out of style like the current trends. Many of you have asked if I’m still designing with my label and the answer is YES! I just didn’t expect to be launching and creating a fitness app soon after I launched my label, so my past few months have been focused on creating a strong foundation for the PowHer.fit community and company to grow on!
Speaking of PowHer.fit, I got one of the best workouts ever completed today! Not every workout is always my best, and I’m a firm believer that any workout is better than no workout because consistency always prevails! However, today was one of those days that I had extra time and energy to put towards my workout. I was only scheduled to workout for about 35 minutes based on my current day within the Bikini Body Conditioning Program in the PowHer.fit app, but I was listening to literally one of THE BEST podcasts I have ever heard so I ended up putting in a full hour (the length of the podcast!). I’m a big fan of Lauryn with The Skinny Confidential and I love the Him & Her podcast that her husband Michael does with her. The episode where they interviewed Tim Grover of Attack Athletics. He has trained some of the highest performing athletes in history including Michael Jordan! If you love to listen to high performance habits type of content, or maybe you just need a little extra motivational push during your next workout, I highly recommend Episode 172 of the Skinny Confidential Him & Her Podcast covering “Becoming Relentless, Mental Dominance & Achieving Excellence”. I saw one of the PowHer.fit girls mention Tim Grover earlier today, and when I searched his name within podcasts I was so excited to see the there was an episode where Lauryn Everts had featured an interview with him. I highly highly recommend you give it a listen. I aspire to be a cleaner who is very resilient and relentless, and if you listen to the episode you will understand more! Let me know your favorite part of the podcast below if you end up listening to it!
Now before I let you scroll through some beautiful new images by Catherine Smeader Photography of me wearing this super fun leopard wrap dress from Southern Jewlz and announce the giveaway requirements below, I want to give one more plug about the May Challenge coming up between many members of the PowHer.fit community. This will be a quick and effective 4 week challenge to help many members amp up their results before Summer! If you want to learn more (like how to enter, what the winning requirements are, as well as the grand prize options), then please read the FAQ Blog Post about the May Challenge that I wrote about a few days ago HERE.

I’ll close with a Tim Grover quote as I feel it’s super fitting for today’s post (hence the podcast recommendation):
“Surround yourself with those who want you to succeed. People who don’t pursue their own dreams won’t encourage you to pursue yours!” – Tim Grover
I hope everyone has a beautiful upcoming weekend!
