This is my story

Over the years, my life has changed drastically. I've gone from being an exhausted people-pleaser to a mother and two-time author and writer passionate about helping other women care for and love themselves.

As I've moved through my days, I've discovered that self-care touches every aspect of our lives - from the food we eat to how we communicate with others to the physical spaces we live within. It's not about bubble baths and face masks; no, proper self-care is deeper and more holistic.

I believe that self-care is the key to creating a life that feels grounded, joy-filled, and not so damn exhausting. Sure, it's not always straightforward to tend to your needs, but that doesn't make it any less critical. Among these pages, I hope you find self-care inspiration to help create the life you deserve and the courage to make it a reality.
