My Name Change on IG and Twitter and a New Blog!

Good morning beauties!

Did you by chance notice that my name changed on Instagram and Twitter? The name for my personal IG and Twritter pages was @sweet_trinity but now it is @styledbychrista. Let me explain:

I have (2) very strong passions, and for quite some time, I have been contemplating how to separate them or keep them together. One passion is for aromatherapy and natural skincare products. The other is for makeup, hair, accessories, and as I always say, "sparkly pretty things." These passions compliment each other and although I have an audience who is interested in both, I also recognize that I have a distinct and separate audience for aromatherapy/natural skincare, and another audience for hair and makeup. Sooooo....I decided to split the subjects.

This blog will continue to provide information about aromatherapy, natural skincare and ingredients, and inspiration to live a happy and healthy life. And in addition to this blog, I have created a new blog: (currently under construction). The new blog will be the place where I can express all my makeup, hair, and beauty news for those who are interested in those topics. I am also now a Stella & Dot Stylist..yipee ;) the Styled by Christa site will have links to purchase all the sparkly pretty things I am in love with!

So the breakdown is as follows:

Sweet Trinity Aromatherapy
Blog: this site (
Instagram: @SweetTrinityAromatherapy

Styled by Christa

I hope this provides some clarity and I hope you find both blogs interesting and informative. I look forward to our ongoing interaction and thank you for being part of my journey.

Until next time...Be Sweet! xoxo

Life is a Theater

Good evening beauties!

Today I was going through some archived inspirational notes, postcards, etc. and came across something that really inspired me. I hope the following inspires you too: 

Invite Your Audience Carefully

Not everyone is healthy enough to have a front row seat in our lives. 
There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a DISTANCE. 
It's amazing what you can accomplish when you let go of, or at least minimize your time with, draining, negative, incompatible, not-going-anywhere relationships/friendships. 
Observe the relationships around you. Pay attention. 
Which ones lift and which ones lean?
Which ones encourage and which ones discourage?
Which ones are on a path of growth uphill and which ones are going downhill?
When you leave certain people do you feel better or feel worse?
Which ones always have drama or don't really understand, know or appreciate you?
The more you seek quality, respect, growth, peace of mind, love and truth around you...the easier it will become for you to decide who gets to sit in the front row and who should be moved to the balcony of Your Life. 
"If you cannot change the people around you, CHANGE the people you are around."
Remember that the people we hang with will have an impact on both our lives and our income. And so we must be careful to choose the people we hang out with, as well as the information with which we feed our minds. 
We should not share our dreams with negative people, Nor feed our dreams with negative thoughts. 
It's your choice and your life...It's up to you who and what you let in it...

Until next time...Be Sweet! xoxo

Perserverance - Revisited!

I know I am several days late for this week's Monday Momentum so I am titling this entry simply - Perserverance. Do you ever have those days or weeks that so much is going on personally and professionally that you just pray to make it through each day? This week was like that for me!

Professionally I had a fantastic week winning an award and being recognized for my accomplishments while at the same time, being involved in more projects than I have had in months! Personally...I had to take an exam for my ongoing care of my thyroid. Awaiting test results and medical opinions can take a toll on you emotionally but this week I just kept pressing forward knowing that this too shall pass. Good news - my results were great and I got through the week! ;)

I hope you all were able to press through this week and know that you can endure anything that comes your way.

Wishing you all a fantastic day and remember....Be Sweet! ;)

Out on the Town - Artisan Cafe

Good afternoon beauties - long time no talk to!

Well I have a good reason to be away so long. My one and only child, my daughter Nani, graduated from high school last week! I am soooooo proud of her. The last few months have been a whirlwind with college acceptance, paperwork, graduation prep, prom, etc, etc. It has been so much fun and I have given her all my attention because she will be going away to college in August. 

One of the extra benefits of the prom and graduation, was the visits from family and friends. I had so much fun with everyone! One of the things I did with my family while they were here was take them to the Artisan Cafe event. We had a great time!

The event featured local artisans and musical guests. My mom loved the band because she is a music lover and is the lead singer of her very own band! Go mom! ;)

Well I just wanted to check in and in the coming weeks, I'll be posting more as the festivities have come to an end. 

Thank you for visiting my blog and as always...Be Sweet! xoxo

How Laughter Impacts Your Health

Good day beauties!

Did you know that laughter reduces stress? I love to laugh and it's a bonus that laughter helps to reduce my stress levels! ;) Laughter does the following things:

Laughter Reduces Stress: When stressed, we produce a hormone called cortisol. Laughter can significantly reduce cortisol levels.

Laughter Can Reduce Pain: Laughter causes us to produce endorphins, which are natural, pain-killing hormones.

Laughter Strengthens the Immune System: A hearty laugh decreases stress hormones and increases production of T-cells, immune proteins and infection-fighting antibodies.

Laughter Helps the Heart: When we laugh we increase blood flow and the function of blood vessels, which can help prevent cardiovascular problems.

So now that you know all the wonderful benefits of laughing, make sure you get a good chuckle or two in today!

Until next time...Be Sweet! xoxo
