Before I start posting, I wanted to give a little background on why I started this blog and what it means to me. I’m a mom of a one year old girl and I’m a part time waitress. Serving has always provided me with a lot of positive things but passion isn’t really one of them. Writing has always been a passion of mine, and recently I’ve felt like I’ve actually had something worth sharing so here we are.
I’ve experienced loss and trauma many times over the course of my life. I’ve learned to value gratitude, mindfulness, and self love so much as a way to navigate those experiences and continue to see the beauty in everyday. After becoming a mom, and dealing with some of the struggles that come along with motherhood, I learned to value something different that I hadn’t before- connection.
One major way motherhood changed me was the opening up. While I was pregnant and especially after having Sienna, I opened up and connected to others in ways I never had. In addition to that, I found myself constantly being thankful for the communities of mothers I follow online. I follow a handful of incredible “mom bloggers” who share similar values and tastes as I do. It was another reminder of the importance and value of connection. To be inspired and to inspire, and to know you’re not alone.
Initially, I just wanted to write about skincare. It could seem like a shallow topic to some, but for me (and I’m sure many woman agree) it can be a very therapeutic self care practice. It’s an investment in yourself and your health. That’s when I realized my passion is deeper than just face rollers and non-toxic serums (though both are amazing, but more on that later.) More so, I’m passionate about taking care of yourself and others. Sharing your story because it truly could help the next person, the next mother. And no matter what, striving to see life with Rose Colored Glasses.
If any of this resonates with you, share your feedback and follow along. Thank you for reading!
