Mare's Music Monday

I was chatting on SnapChat recently (my name is RedheadMare, add me!) and asking what songs make you stop everything and dance. I had quite a few people snap me back asking what my favourite country songs are right now. I've also gotten this question lately on my daily vlogs as I often show myself jamming out with some carpool karaoke! 

I also get asked a lot if I like the music now that I am doing weekends on New Country 100.7.  I love it! So, in no particular order, here are some country songs I am loving lately, some older and some new. Each is a clickable link to the video:)

MareReads: How to be a Bawse

Yup. I've found my first must-read of 2017. 

This book is so riveting that when I finished it this morning I immediately bought to audio book. 

That, dear Mareathoner, is a fabulous testament to how much I got out of this book. 

Lilly Singh is a Canadian YouTuber with more than 11 million subscribers and more than 1.8 billion views.  Her main channel, iiSuperwomanii, is mainly comedic sketches and she also has a vlog channel where she posts daily videos. Her vlog channel is the content that I mainly watch and it's been fun to follow along on her epic journey.  

Lilly's written this book, How to be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life, as a collection of lessons she's learned.  It's broken down into 50 very easy-to-read chapters with relatable advice and strategies to overcoming your biggest obstacles.  I respect how attainable she makes success and how much she encourages hard work.  Singh says she's not here to give the reader a get rich quick scheme but instead explain the tools for creating a life of greatness.  

She's so wise for her young age.  While I don't agree entirely with every piece of advice, she's got a fabulous delivery and definitely made me think differently on many topics. 

Singh is very open about how she hit rock bottom and dealt with incredible depression before her rise to the top.  

This book is a great read, no matter your age. If you are looking for some real-talk advice, pick up this gem.

A Joyous Encounter

Joy McCarthy of Joyous Health has been a huge influence on my health and my health journey for the past four years. She's a Canadian holistic nutritionist who makes taking care of yourself seem simple.  For so long I was intimidated by health food stores and had no idea how to even start to make a change.  Then, a Mareathoner suggested I read her first book, Joyous Health, and I was so drawn in that I studied it front-to-back. I've given countless copies as gifts and spoke about it countless times in my videos. 

Fast forward to last week when Joy was in town to do a presentation! We met and she was gracious enough to be on camera for an interview. Here are the vlogs I posted showing my excitement on the day and then also our chat.  Watch to find out how you can enter to win a signed copy of Joyous Detox
