Welcome to my Green Beauty & Lifestyle Blog! I’ve been interested in learning about Green Living for more than a decade now, which has led me to looking into all of the harmful toxins found in conventional makeup and body-care products. Along my Holistic Health & Wellness journey, I’ve learned so much about Indie makeup brands, the importance of only supporting cruelty-free brands, and how amazing it feels to put good-for-you ingredients on your skin every day. Putting on makeup has become my zen time where I set the mood for my day, appreciate the seasons of the year, and allow my creativity to flow.
About 8 years ago, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, which turned into full blown Hashimoto’s Disease after the birth of my son. This chronic illness led me to devour book after book, article after article on natural remedies, exercise programs, and using food as fuel to naturally increase my energy and to maintain a healthy weight. Since being diagnosed with this disorder, even with taking medication prescribed by my doctor, I still have symptoms of chronic fatigue, chronic headaches/migraines, wicked PMS, depression, and anxiety.
Throughout the process of looking into what I can do to help myself, I became a certified Wellness Coach learning about nutrition, lifestyle factors, and the importance of moving one’s body on a daily basis. I also have a Masters degree in Counseling with a specialization in Mental Health. I want to share what I’ve learned about overcoming physical challenges by empowering each of you to take charge of your health and well-being!
All in all, this blog is dedicated to featuring:

“Beauty will save the world.”
“As you realize, the world evolves.”
Love and Light Always,
