Hey Beings of Light

I want to confess something to you. I haven't been sharing 100% of who I am.

It's not because I wanted to keep anything from you, I just get nervous when it comes to opening up about the parts of myself that may be considered weird.

I've been sad lately and I think it's because I haven't been honoring my truth. I started this blog to help people learn how to be their truest selves by balancing their bodies, minds and spirits. And I think that by wanting people to like me, I only concentrated on the part of me that would be the most accepted.

Makeup is accepted by basically everyone, and so that is where my focus went. But makeup isn't who I am 100% of the time. Honestly, I don't even wear makeup 6 days out of the week.

I love everyone that I have met in the Green Beauty community, and I'm still going to continue to post about makeup.

But I'm also going to post about oracle cards, and crystals and plant-based food, and yoga, and books and anything else I feel like talking about. I want the content that I create to reflect the entirety of who I am, not just one aspect. Think of me as a multifaceted crystal. Or disco ball.

So I would like to welcome you to the evolved, more open and honest Holistic Melanin.

See you next time,
