Proud to Rep
As I mentioned before, I want to be a therapist to sit across from someone in their darkest time, as my therapist did for me, and remind them of the light they share with the world. That in their darkest of times, there is a light of hope that shine through and that light is their heart, it is their strength and their resilience. To be a therapist is to walk alongside someone, collaborating on how to celebrate the best of times and work through the toughest together. I've spent so many years struggling alone, thinking I was not worthy of love, sincere two-way friendships and relationships because my accident stripped me of so may years where I had no one but my parents, crying on the bathroom floor and in the shower wishing that I didn't exist. I vow to do everything in my power to help anyone who walks through my doors feel better about themselves and remind them that they are worthy of love and they matter on this earth. I am here to help others find well-being and I am proud to share the brands I choose loyalty to as well as the brands I have partnered up with that help me ground down in empowerment, tribe love and self-care.
Brands I am proud and humpled to represent
Why am I so proud to be a Project HEAL Ambassador?
Because I truly admire and support their mission and values in providing assistance, hope and a lending hand to those struggling with eating disorders and body-image difficulties. Having survived the trenches of my own battle and choosing the path of recovery for a little over 2 years now, I am forever grateful to those who stand alongside another whom suffers and offers support, a safe space and empathy.
When I was suffering from anorexia and body dysmorphia, it felt like I was having a daily battle not just with my body, but with my mind, soul and spirit. Until I asked for help and guidance and invested my time and energy in therapy, I felt ashamed, guilty, isolated, depressed and hopeless. Receiving support allowed me to put an end to the negative self-talk and less-than-serving interactions, the dangerous cycle of comparison and helped me to practice gratitude for all that I am and build a positive dialogue with myself to wholeheartedly believe that I am enough.
Self-care isn’t selfish, it’s beautiful and healthy. Seeking help is an embodiment of strength. Choosing recovery need not be a path that’s travelled alone. Replacing toxic interactions with positive relationships is actually pretty rad!

I have been a huge freaking fan of Hayley and Nadya's work for years! I admire them as women, as creatives, as entrepreneurs and as true gems. Their dharma shines through each magical garment they hand sew and design. Talk about women empowering women. Purusa People offers sustainable lounge and active wear that is made from eucalyptus, not plastic and ofcourse with lots and lots of love! I am so happy to support Purusha People.

Brand Loyality I Choose
All Day Everyday
Byta (rosefinch and hemlock are my favorit colors)
Decor baskets (I use them to store/stash summer produce like peaches and nectarines as they ripen or avocados. I also think it looks cute next to my coffee maker and put breakfast bars in it for easy access)
Mason jars (don't come at me with the hipster jokes please)
Blender (affordable, portable and so freaking easy to clean)
Wild Friends (I am allergic to nuts so their sunflower butter is my addiction)
Nomad Chocolate (the coconut milk chocolate is so freaking silky and yes I've finished a whole bar in one sitting, no freaking shame in my game)
Cauliflower Cheddar Stars (this snack is NOT just for kids, trust me!)
Hippeas (I recommend getting the smaller bags if you want to portion control because the white cheddar is my weakness and I have ZERO self control)
Siete (I make avocado toast using 2 of their tortillas with a little salt, pepper and side of a Matcha Oat Milk Latte- it;s the perfect breakfast)
Beauty X Skin Care
Pretty much anything at Face&Soul Studio. I love the Dreamer Multi-Stick and Mascara from ILIA. The Sun-tegrity "5 in 1" is a gem!!
Pacifica Eyeliner (I love the gun metal)
Hair and Body Mist (I feel like I am on a freaking tropical vacation even if I am studying Law and Ethics at 9pm and stuck in class)
Facial Scrub (I feel like a whole new person after I use this scrub- literally gets all the nitty gritty gunk out)
Dry Shampoo (my mom squirms when I say dry shampoo, she'd rather turn the hose onto my hair but hey, sometimes a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do)
SPF (the older I get, the more I have to protect my easy-to-burn skin)
Lattes and Snacks: Five07
