I’m Becca. A twenty-something from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
I used to be oblivious – buying the cheap products and foods from the store. The products that were in commercials. I had no idea what it meant to look at labels or ingredient lists. I simply believed when a label said “natural” and “healthy” that it was.
Well, I was doing it all wrong.
Acne was something that I struggled with on and off throughout my life. Once in high school, then a few years ago it came back again with a vengeance. After trying countless “miracle” products that just didn’t work, I began doing research and discovered that my body was signaling to me that something was wrong.
I began researching and becoming aware of what I was putting in and on my body. Almost everything I was doing was toxic and unhealthy. My hormones were unbalanced and my gut was unhealthy. I knew that something needed to change.
Simply put, I believe in a healthy, clean, and organic lifestyle. If you nourish your body with what it needs, that’s when it functions best. But why? That is what I hope to share with you in this blog. I want you to be more aware of what you’re consuming and using as well. If you make just one positive change because of this blog, then I consider it a success. And no, I’m not perfect with the food I eat or the products I use, and I don’t expect you to be either! But I believe it’s about slowly making the positive changes in your life, and not being overly strict about it. It’s about balance (so cliché but true).
Outside of this, you can find me drinking coffee and wine, hiking with my husband Jon and our dog Dexter, practicing my Spanish, traveling, playing video games, or making pretty things for the digital world.
