Hi! I’m Martie Pineda,  I blog about Lush Living!  I love  to advocate lush wellness and lifestyle,  because I believe that everyone has the right to live and love a fabulous and lush lifestyle – 

Living lush is not about wealth and affluence but more about an attitude of grace and abundance!  Lushness is about enticing the senses! Lushness can be created by placing a single, perfect rose in a repurposed wine bottle on the breakfast table! Voila! You now have effortless lush beauty, color, dimension, fragrance and nature!

It’s The Little Things

Little Thing #1

Listen to the little voice,the quiet, little voice deep down inside of you, that is constantly trying to give you guidance. You know the one, the quiet, little voice that gets drowned out by the loud and chaotic machinations of daily life. So often, this little knowing and wise voice has no power because we give it away to our friends, family and the media. Slow down, be still and know that you are the ultimate wisdom in your life.

After a successful career in interior design, a sampling of the diplomatic life, and running my own natural products business I yearned for something different.  After a consultation with my chiropractor I began entertaining the idea of health coaching. And within the year I was enrolled at the Integrative Institute for Nutrition, and on my way to becoming a best selling author.  My book “It’s The Little Things! 99 Ways to create joy, health & happiness” was written while I was in coaching school.  It was a culmination of very basic things to help people on their way to creating more health, happiness and joy, kind of a lifestyle coach in a book! I purposely kept it very simple and easy. Sometimes the idea of making changes or improvements can seem daunting and discouraging.  My methodology about health and wellness and lushness is that is needs to be simple and easy. And broken down into easy doable steps!
