HIGH PERFORMANCE, LOW TOXICITY, ANTI-AGING, NIGHTTIME SKIN CARE REGIMEN FOR 2021

I won’t ever go the plastic surgery, botox, fillers route and plan to only ever use natural methods to age gracefully. I love the French beauty philosophy which is all about embracing your flaws. French women don’t try to fight their signs of aging (the idea is actually ludicrous to them), and instead, they lean into the marks, spots, and lines that make them unique. They work with what they have and really celebrate their own natural beauty. It’s a lovely concept and I’ve always agreed.

Never forget, and always remember to just treat your oils, and the entire process, with respect and humility. Continue reading MY TOP 8 FAVORITE ESSENTIAL OILS

MANAGE FEAR LIKE A GODDESS

I’m frenemies with fear, and have been for my entire life. Every part of this definition incisively describes my lifelong relationship with fear, with the exception of describing fear as a person.
