Who is Julie? She’s the lucky lady who won herself an all inclusive trip to Reset Retreat via the CultureMap Retreat Giveaway! Julie will be joining us at our luxury beachfront villa in Hopkins, Belize next week for some yoga, personal growth, jungle adventures, and cultural experiences.
We asked Julie a few questions to learn more about her before we meet in Belize!
What made you want to enter to win a trip to Reset Retreat?
Give me a beach with sunshine and I’m a happy girl! Add in a fabulous group of women, yoga and time to work on bettering myself and I believe I have just hit the jackpot.
What are you most looking forward to?
A week of relaxing on the beach while focusing on what I want to accomplish in 2016. I’m also hoping there is a big pile of lobsters included too.
Have you ever been on a retreat like this before?
Never!! I’m excited for the chance!
What is the best advice you’ve ever gotten, and what’s the best you’ve ever given?
Advice gotten: Be the person you needed when you were younger.
Advice given: Never be too proud to say, ‘I’m sorry’.
What has been your biggest struggle?
Making time for me.
How do you “reset”?
For me, it’s about simple things. A nice cup of tea. A favorite song. A phone call to a friend.
What makes you smile?
Quality time with those I love, traveling, a fabulous meal with friends and my golden retriever Dudley.
What inspires you?
I love to learn and try new things. Traveling to new places, learning to cook new foods and activities excite me. I’m planning on signing up for sailing lessons this spring!
What changes do you hope to see/make in yourself?
I’m all about challenging myself to be a better person. At Reset Retreat, I hope to figure out what I’m choosing to focus on in the next year.
What is your favorite thing to do?
Spend a day out in Hill Country. It’s just an hour from home but feels like I am in a totally different world where I feel relaxed instantly.
If you could be anyone for a day, who would you be?
Kate Middleton. Besides the obviously cool Royal perks, I would love to have her hair for a day.
How do you “treat” yourself in small ways?
Enjoying a favorite Voluspa candle, getting a mani/pedi or drinking a chai tea latte.
How did you hear about the CultureMap giveaway?
I’m a huge fan of CultureMap – they have the best scoop in town and host fun parties. When I got their email about the Belize getaway contest, it didn’t require much arm twisting for me to enter. 😉
