WHO’S BEEN SNOOPED?

Just Imagine! Here it is, Cherry Season! Generations of family farmers have been growing the finest farm fresh produce for years offering a “u-pick” experience for the entire family. Pretty sure, their Great Grandpa’s never envisioned Brentwood Harvest Time would welcome well over 120,000 visitors in the Month of May. Living in the area, I can personally witness the beautiful spring blossoms of our precious cherry orchards as they bring to life that glowing red fruit! What a great time to check in on a local business who brings out the beauty in you. Nicole Conde Owner and creator of Tres Jolie Salon & Interiors is known for her incredible talents to create your Total image style like no other! I am so fortunate to finally write about her since she has blessed our city with her vision, passion for perfection and dedication to the beauty industry since 1986. Yes, for those of you who know her, which I’m sure there are many in these last 32 years that will say she has used her License to

Create to bring you into “The World of Tres Jolie.” Visiting her Salon is at the very least, a remarkable experience. You are greeted with a smile and a glass of pink champagne or mocha from the coffee bar. She has developed her own brand of custom blended certified organic hair care products, cosmetics, and anti aging skincare line that has proven itself through the test of time ... the moment you meet her you know you are in the hands of a true professional. These creative hands offer a full array of services including custom color, red carpet facials, and Rf skin tight body treatments. I think the thing I like best is her ability to bring her amazing hair colors to life. I am talking about the ones you see on TV and the front cover of magazines. She has accomplished every level of Vidal Sassoon education that is offered! She has done many fashion shows and been recognized for her work through so many in the industry. She is truly magical. Now the good news is you no longer need to go to Napa for a full day of spa treatments. We all can stay local in Brentwood where the cherry trees blossom, the food is farm to table and the beauty treatments at Tres Jolie are the best in the Bay !

You hear the phrase “beauty from the inside out” well it’s just like Nicole to make sure that your every sense is cared for. She also offers for your home, home decor services , window treatments and custom furnishings. On her salon menu she includes lifestyle detox systems on a cellular level. Facials, Body wrap treatments, hair extensions, bridal services, oh and did I mention Dessert Tables! Any thing your heart desires. Just check out her website at Www. clubtresjolie.com and read her yelp reviews and note her 5 star rating on Facebook. Having watched her over all these years I am personally inspired by her flair and love of life. Her salon has European feel with a sparkle. She and her staff are warm caring and friendly. They fit perfectly within the private walls of beauty and makes you feel like you are special and about to embark on a journey of a lifetime. So cutie, this snoop gives you 20 golden stars for bringing “dreams to reality.” Who will be snooped next, could it be you?

Très Jolie is located at 761 Second St. Suite D in Brentwood or they can be reached at 925-513-0121 or visit their website gallery clubtresjolie.com.

The target market for the yoga center ranges from teenagers to seniors. They provide quality of instruction, a peaceful, respectful and supportive environment

and a lower cost than other yoga studios in the area. They provide a Kirtan Group and Voice of Heart that perform monthly at the center while also providing body work and ayuruveda massages and facials in their “Healing Cottage”. Shri Anandi Ma, a meditation master of the Kundaline Maha Yoga lineage, offers meditation programs yearly. Vasant Lad is a renowned Ayurveda physician and scholar who offers a yearly weekend of Ayurveda workshops at Dhyanyoga. There are numerous events located at their website dyc.org where you can find classes and events for the year of 2018.

Owner Jan Handel welcomes the public to experience a spiritual and psychological awakening.

them just what they need.” –Sarita V “At Guruj’s birthday celebration in Antioch this month, there was no lack of devotees, devotion, incredible food or the sweet nectar of Ma’s and Guruji’s Shakti. As the ceremony progressed I could not help but fall hard into deep meditation, hardly able to participate in the ceremony in an outward sense.” –Brian, Jan 2013 “By the final meditation on Sunday, I felt recharged and renewed. I wondered at how blessed I was to be a part of this. I felt my doubts dropping away and realized how thoroughly the Divine had worked with me at such a deep level to help me clear obstacles toward my soul’s evolution. I knew then and know now that I will never be the same. What a demonstration of working to destroy the ego! No doubt, there’ll be more of that to come, but I am so grateful to have started chipping away at this hard blockhead!” –Satya Jane

Customer Testimonials: “Chanting is fun and joyful on so many levels. It is a microcosmic experience of what I love about being part of the DYC community. As we begin to chant we are often ragged and un-unified but as each of us comes into alignment with each other- all tuning to the same vibration. It is the same experience I have when in the dance of seva (service); the energy is directing me and I am moving in synchronicity with the other sevites. Or when I am in perfect alignment with the people I am serving and I am able to give

HOME & LIFESTYLE

mornings. Eggs are quick and delicious, and they can be prepped a day prior. Eggs can be baked in the oven at 350 degrees in a cookie sheet. Simply crack the eggs, add a bit of salt and pepper then bake for fifteen minutes. Voila! Breakfast for the week. Simple, fast and efficient.

One Week Of Healthy Meals, With Minimal Effort We all know that the week can get hectic, with work and whatever life can throw at you. In between the chaos is it important to provide a healthy yet hearty meal for your family. American household spend $70,000 on takeout annually. With such a high number, saving money is also a dire reason that cooking at home is healthy as well as frugal. The key to a week of healthy meals is choosing two days to cook and prep your food for break, lunch, or dinner. Whether it is all three meals or one, the choice is up to you. Let’s begin with the first meal of the day. Breakfast. The meal that gets you energized and ready for the day ahead. Though this meal is the most important of the day, it is often the one that is most skipped. Grab and go options typically tend to be the best for those busy

Lunch and dinner can be a more complicated meal, since they tend to require more ingredients and prep time. Chopped salads and soups are always excellent options with minimal prep time. For lunch, grab and go; just like breakfast is a great option. A chopped salad with fresh in season fruits and or vegetables can be stored in Tupperware and ready to go in seconds. Dinner can be prepped and stored in the freezer. Crock-pot meals are always the way to go for a fast meal. One easy meal is Teriyaki Chicken. All you need is five chicken breasts, teriyaki sauce, water, brown sugar and three cloves of garlic. All of these can be added to a Ziploc bag, kept frozen then added to a crock pot for four hours. Prepped and ready to eat! Make sure to mush the ingredients in the bag together so the flavors fuse together. Thaw out the freezer meals in the fridge overnight so they are

easier to cook. We cannot forget about snacks! Throughout the day, we all look forward to that midday snack. Homemade oatmeal energy balls and grab and go granola bars are the perfect quick fix until the time dinner arrives. All you need is steel cut oatmeal (1 cup), shredded coconut (1 cup), half cup of peanut butter and 1/3 cup of mini chocolate chips and honey. Combine all these ingredients, scoop into a ball, store in fridge and they are ready to eat. You can make as many as you want to last you through your week. It is important to set weekly goals for yourself and your family. Whether it is bringing your own lunch to work everyday or aiming to meal prep during the weekend. Whatever you choose, always remember the reward is worth it!

What Happens to my NonTrust Assets After I am Gone? If you have established a Revocable Living Trust, you have two (2) types of assets: Trust assets (assets held in the name of the Trust) and non-Trust assets (assets that have been intentionally or unintentionally excluded from the Trust). In general, once you die, the terms of your Trust will dictate how your Trust assets will be distributed. But what happens to your non-Trust assets? Some assets are intentionally excluded from a Revocable Living Trust including, but not limited to, retirement accounts (IRAs, 401ks, etc.) and life insurance policies. Upon your death, these assets will be distributed to your designated beneficiaries. However, complications arise if you have not designated beneficiaries. For example, if you have a $500,000 retirement account and you

used to transfer real property. Additionally, using these Affidavits can be difficult as some financial institutions are reluctant to accept them, which can make the transfer cumbersome and time consuming.

do not designated beneficiaries, then this retirement account may need to be probated! Some assets are unintentionally excluded from a Revocable Living Trust. We have met with many clients tell us that there house is in their trust. However, when we pull their grant deed, we discover that the house is not in their Trust. (Note: this occasionally occurs if you refinanced your home and your lender required you to transfer your home out of your Trust). Real property that has been unintentionally excluded from your Trust may need to be probated! There are certain exceptions to this general rule, however, fixing this mistake can be very costly and time consuming to your beneficiaries.

When preparing your estate plan, think carefully about your Trust assets and non-Trust assets. Make sure to carefully consider how your non-Trust assets will be transferred to your beneficiaries following your death. If you are concerned about a particular asset, you should consult with an attorney to ensure that your assets will easily and seamlessly transfer from you to your beneficiaries following your passing.

During a trust administration, we sometimes discover that some assets were: 1) never transferred to the Trust; and 2) did not have designated beneficiaries. The legal question becomes, how do we transfer the asset from your name to your beneficiaries or legal heirs? In California, if the total value of all non-Trust assets is $150,000 or less, we can use an Affidavit for Collection of Personal Property to transfer the assets to those individuals who have a legal right to inherit the assets. However, these Affidavits CANNOT be

AMY’S BRIGHT ADVICE

Ready To Get Motivated? Do you find yourself unable to finish, or sometimes even start, any needed projects? Do you write to-do lists and only get 10% of the tasks completed by the end of the work day? Is the label “Procrastinator” an understatement for you? Do you go to bed at night feeling upset and ashamed that you were unable to get done the needed things for the day? Maybe these feelings have plagued you for weeks or even months. This feeling of lack of motivation can be a successstopper or worse case a career ender. Don’t worry you can stop this pattern, and become a motivated, successful professional again but first you need to explore deep within yourself to find out why this is happening. The following process will take you step by step to restore your professional life back into the powerhouse you once were! First, we must figure out the reason you

are going down this tunnel in the first place. If you don’t like your job then you NEED to find one that stirs passion within you but this article is addressing those of us who love what we do but for some reason all of a sudden we are just not able to push ourselves to be the most successful we can be. Along with this lack of motivation will come a feeling of disappointment with oneself and a puzzlement of where your determination has gone. It can be upsetting to feel like you’re not living up to your aspirations, especially when there’s important work to be completed. Speed, efficiency and productivity are what drive results, and when our energy doesn’t match our ambition, it is frustrating and can be what keeps us from reaching our greatest potential. The effects it can have on us can be numerous: difficulty sleeping restfully, finding yourself sick, or sometimes a lack of ability to concentrate on anything life throws at you. Your mental health can take a beating from emotional exhaustion caused from the consequences of procrastination and a sense of absolutely no motivation. But the great news is you don’t have to stay this way! With some exploration

and reflection, you can get to the bottom of what’s sapping your drive and energy and get yourself back to the top of your game! Are you looking for steps to eliminate this lack of motivation attitude? Well, next month you will find in Amy’s Bright Advice Column the answers you have been searching for! Stayed tuned, do some deep selfreflection and then get ready for the advice you need to be transformed into the BEST POWERHOUSE PROFESSIONAL you can be!!!
