Tell us about your relationship with MINERAL’s products.
I use CLEANSE and HYDRATE every morning and every evening. CLEANSE takes the grime of my sleep and day off of my skin and I feel so clean and refreshed and prepped for HYDRATE which is so incredibly soothing + calming. I can’t go without these two beautiful products. The scent, the packaging, the feeling I get from using them - it’s very much a part of my daily ritual.
Explain what inspired your current way of life.
My search for peace and the inspiration for a lot of my creation surrounds the passing of my father in 2017. When he passed away, my life changed and I felt suspended in chaos. I changed a lot of things after that - my job, my relationship, my views on life + the meaning I ascribed to my day to day.
How did you decide to contribute to social media rather than keeping it to yourself?
I started seeing beauty in the smallest moments and began capturing them - through those moments I was able to see him + feel peace. It's become a mission of mine to help people create peaceful environments to exist in. We all deserve it while the world fragments because the only way we will be able to recreate it is by creating inspirational corners that remind us that there is beauty + possibility.
You’re a source of calm in what often feels chaotic on social media and IRL. How do you maintain peace without fear of judgment?
I think that there is an underlying fear of judgement residing in everyone and I’m definitely not exempt from it. Some days are better than others. Some days I hear the perfect song and capture the perfect light and there’s no question that I’ve captured a certain emotional essence. Other days I skip every song in my Spotify library because nothing is connecting and I begin to spiral. Usually when that happens - I put on my meditate playlist and remind myself everything I have to be grateful for. Remind myself that what I’m creating isn’t about me and I need to remove my ego from it.
What parts of your routine do you consider essential to your inner peace?
Going into deep nature at least once a month. Reading one book a month. Listening to instrumental music. Eating clean foods. I like to be raw vegan for about a week every month.
