Hiya Lovelies:

What’s the key to a healthy lifestyle? The most important thing that you need to really bring everything together? Is it a healthy diet? Tons of exercise? A good night’s sleep? Heck no! (Even though those are all pretty freaking important.) It’s all about the self love baby! And self acceptance is a pretty big part of that.

Learning to love yourself wholeheartedly and accept yourself as the incredible, unique snowflake you are is a big deal. And if that doesn’t sit at the foundation of your healthy lifestyle everything kind of falls apart.

Celebrating 5 Years with Graves Disease and Tips to Build Your Best Life

Celebrating 5 Years with Graves Disease and Tips to Build Your Best Life

Hello Lovelies:

This time five years ago I was trying to absorb the fact that I have Graves Disease, an incurable, but thankfully treatable, autoimmune disease.

Like many diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, my life drastically changed after my diagnosis. Initially I was devastated and angry. But five years later I can honestly say that Graves Disease has changed my life for the better. 

Really, I changed myself for the better. But knowing I would be spending a lifetime with Graves Disease truly motivated me to examine my life and foster changes that would allow me to thrive in my circumstances. And there are so many ways that you can too! Even if you don’t have a chronic illness.

Don’t wait for a disease to make yourself a priority. Let’s talk about how to truly make yourself feel fantastic, inside and out.

The Ultimate Foodie Guide to Healthy Hair

The Ultimate Foodie Guide to Healthy Hair - What you eat can be the difference between dull, thin, brittle locks, or gorgeous, shiny, thick tresses. Here are the best foods for healthy hair!

Hello Lovelies:

I used to have a cabinet full of hair products. I wanted that sexy, healthy hair look. Hair spray? Check. Colour infuse shampoo? Check. Leave in conditioner, deep conditioners, wave spray, shiner spray… check, check, check, check. My collection was extensive. And my main goal was to load up on all the self-care products I could, and spend as little as possible. Today my standards have changed… and so has my knowledge on what truly makes our bodies (hair included) shine.

While there are certainly a ton of products that can give you that luscious, healthy hair look, it’s hard to out-condition a bad diet. Hair products can definitely help our hair shine; but eating the right foods can create gorgeous hair for the inside out.

It’s also worth considering what we’re putting on our hair. Remember, the self-care products we use on a daily basis often expose us to known or probable human carcinogens, reproductive and developmental toxins and endocrine disruptors (source). It’s worth our while to feed our body with kindness, so that it has the tools it needs to provide us with the healthiest glow possible. And cutting down on the products we’re using, whilst ensuring that we select healthier options, can also make all the difference as well.

In short, health comes from the inside out first and foremost. Self-care products should be a secondary way to support and nourish our bodies, from the outside in.

So what should we add to our diets to nourish our bodies and help to create gorgeous, healthy hair?
