I dream of a world where clean and safe beauty is the gold standard. But, for that day to actually arrive, we need to vote with our dollars and support businesses that are pushing the cosmetic industry forward. Skin is our largest organ and our protective barrier from illnesses and disease, so what you put on it matters, just like the food you eat matters. Is beauty really worth the cancer-causing and hormone-disrupting toxic ingredients? Nope. It really isn’t. And I betcha, you’ll find that these clean beauty alternatives work just as well, if not better.
Hustling from a place of peace… I spent over six years hustling my butt off in NYC, and now I’m writing this while sitting outside by my pool in Austin, TX. Moving to Austin was a form of self-care for me, and it was my way of taking control of my situation to channel a healthy hustle that is both lucrative and sustainable.
New York, I love you. We’ve been together for almost eight years. You’ve shaped me, challenged me, pushed me, and enabled me to make my dreams a reality. I’m saying goodbye for now, as I’m entering a new chapter of my life in the Southwest. But before I go, I want to take a trip down memory lane to share my journey from a small town in Kentucky to the Big Apple and also to not forget the magic that happened here.
Transitioning into a more sustainable lifestyle doesn’t happen overnight. In fact, when people approach it from an ‘all or nothing’ standpoint, that’s when expectations fall short and feelings of failure set in. I believe every little bit counts. Doing SOMETHING to help the planet is better than nothing at all, and imagine the difference we would make if we ALL did a little something. Nobody is perfect, so don’t strive for perfection. Strive for progress.
Hey hi hello, beautiful friends! I’ve been caught up lately – Caught up in strategizing, trying to make my blog more SEO friendly, and just totally missing the point of WHY I started thing dang thing over four years ago. While SEO, business strategy, and content calendars are important, my heart is with writing and connecting with my community. So, today I’m saying screw you to SEO and OVER-planing. I just want to WRITE what’s currently on my mind. I figured what better place to start than to just share what I’m loving lately. Here we go!
