Today we are introducing you to Anne-Tyler Harshbarger as our BethieLife Woman Crush. Anne is a former professional ballerina who went on to act, model, DJ all over the world and also owns Blossom Body Awareness company. To make this girl more amazing, she currently lives in the beautiful Newport Beach, California. I love this girl and am so grateful I got to know her. Welcome, Anne!
Born in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean on a Portuguese island called Terceira. Grew up in England and the Southern U.S. (Georgia and Florida). Moved to North Carolina at age 15 for performing arts school, then Houston, next Atlanta, then off to Cali!
If you were stranded on a desert island, what three beauty products would you like to have with you?
Clarisonic face buffer, raw shea butter and fresh drinking water!
My style is constantly changing based on what is presently inspiring me. I get a lot of inspiration from the places that I travel to as well as the activities in my life like yoga, dance and colorful nature. My own personal style is a blend of everything from outrageous and whimsical to demure and sophisticated. I’m always influenced by the nature of my own life.. the unexpected! I enjoy mixing metals, vintage with modern, prissy with rough, distressed denim with lace or something flowy and beautiful, etc. Fashion shouldn’t be taken too seriously. It should always be an authentic expression of your current mood, make you feel good about yourself and be fun!
Spa day. I love a great massage and steam or soak with essential oils.
“Kill them with kindness” ~ my mother. And the Golden Rule.
Cafe Gratitude, Freesoul Caffe, Rogers Gardens. Actually these are in Newport Beach!
Workshops (ecstatic dance, yoga, mediation), retreats on the horizon, new mixes, traveling, more blogging and a video channel.
Traveling, meditating, enjoying nature, cooking, gardening, spending time with friends and loved ones.
This is a California gem. There is a secret spot in Tuna Canyon, Topanga, with THE most spectacular views of the Cali coast. It is a super peaceful spot at the top of a mountain with gorgeous tress and a walking meditation maze.

Smile, move (dance, yoga or exercise), think positively. Also drink lots of water, moisturize, sleep well and be kind and compassionate to yourself and others!
Food, water and love..haha Also music, the ocean and sunsets 🙂
Snakes. I’m working on it. I am facing/tackling all my fears one by one!

Astronaut/Astro physicist or quantum physicist. I am a total science nerd! I geek out on the profound vastness of the microcosm and the macrocosm. What an astounding universe!

Pro ballerina –> DJ –> yoga/meditation/dance instructor.
About 13.8 billion years old! The age of the Universe…remember we’re made of stardust 😉
I am frequently moved to tears. I quite often laugh hysterically until I cry! And it’s totally ridiculous, but sometimes even sweet/sad animal videos will make me tear up. I am quite often moved by touching films, inspirational stories of triumph, and the world’s suffering in general. I think it’s because I am super sensitive and empathetic. Or perhaps I’m going insane..I haven’t been diagnosed with anything yet! haha
