Get to know me

Hello and welcome to my blog.  I’ve always been a curious mind on all things “human” and I’ve always craved to live the best, most meaningful life EVER.   As life is continuously passing by, I’ve realized that at the age of 32 I still don’t have it all figured out.

Throughout my life, I’ve constantly chased unanswered questions and struggled to find MY meaning and purpose.  Every year seems like it’ll be a significant year, but this year as well as the last was very much linear.  As I’m sitting here on my patio listening to Spotify (song: Novo Amor by Anatome), I’m asking myself, “what have I done and what have I accomplished so far?”  My answer is this, “I feel like I haven’t done much, but I sure did feel the motions…there were lots of ups and downs but in terms of accomplishments I haven’t done anything…” It’s now July and I have this burning urge to LIVE the next five months and make it my best.  Seth Godin once said something like this, “if you want to grow, start a journal, write…”

And here it goes, I’m starting this blog once again with a newfound purpose: GROWTH.    For starters, I’m free writing, I’m pouring my heart and thoughts out.  I want to genuinely share what I’m feeling and let go of all the things that are holding me back.  I want to be a CREATIVE.  I mean at the age of 32, I can’t be the only one that doesn’t have it all figured out right?

Through this blog, I want learn how to express my thoughts, feelings, and I want to cultivate a strong relationship with myself.  I also want to share what I know and share what I learn along the way.  I want to be ever evolving… I want to find my HAPPY.

I hope you can get a glimpse of who I am by following my journey.  My first post was beauty related (which was written over a year ago) and I still want to write, review and recommend nontoxic beauty products because green beauty is my hobby.  I whole heartedly believe in natural beauty and I absolutely love the thought of aging gracefully.  I also recently moved to Palos Verdes, CA and I want to share my experiences with this new city.  For starters, I’ve become a herb gardener so I’ll be sharing gardening tips as well as my favorite spots to eat and drink in the South Bay area.

My first get to know me question is: “what do you like to do for fun?”  The answer: I READ. I’m all about books, books, books.  I absolutely love smelling books, holding books and I love to read whenever possible.  I read about 10-20 books a year and I am currently reading “Her Body and Other Stories” by Carmen Maria Machado.  For a period last year I was completely obsessed with feminist books and I couldn’t stop reading about feminism.  This year I’m incorporating more health and wellness nonfiction into my rotation so I can further my expertise in the wellness/mindfulness sphere.  Follow me on Goodreads at: jennyjk

Beauty Heroes by Innersense

“Trust yourself to make the right decision in any situation.  Trust that you’re moving in the right direction, even if you experience obstacles.  Always trust that you can Love More.” – Jeannie Jarnot

I’ve been a subscriber to Beauty Heroes for about three months now and I have to say, it’s definitely my favorite subscription box.  This month’s box was such an amazing curation with 4 full sized products featuring Innersense Organic Beauty.  I couldn’t wait to try what Innersense called their “Hair Ceremony” that feeds both hair and soul with the healing power of nature.

To be quite honest, I knew nothing about this brand and so when I finished watching Innersense’s Interview  on Beauty Heroes YouTube channel, I instantly knew I was going to love their products.  From a deep rooted personal story (their first born daughter was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder), the founders wanted to create products that were truly natural and good not only for people, but also for the environment.   One of the things that struck me most about Innersense was their in depth research to using organic, wild-harvested and bio dynamic plant ingredients.  From getting rid of palm oil and castor oil, they substituted those ingredients for more natural oils such as avocado, coconut and shea oil.

When I opened the Beauty Heroes box, the first thing I noticed was their sleek white packaging and their beautiful gold logo.  The three products (leave in conditioner, shampoo and conditioner) came in 10fl oz/295 ml bottles and their Harmonic Healing Oil came in a 1 fl oz/25 ml glass bottle.

From the 4 products, my favorite was the hair oil.  Since I have really fine hair it’s difficult to find oils that do not weigh down my hair or make my hair look greasy.  When I first used this hair oil, I only used half a pump and it absorbed quickly into my hair leaving it feeling non-greasy and shiny.

When you smell their products, you can see why Innersense wanted to focus on creating a ritualistic experience because the notes of sage and lavender instantly take you back to a calming, relaxing spa.  When you pick up the bottles to use them, you smile just by reading the quotes on the back of each bottle as it helps you create a positive mantra.

The level of care and attention to detail Innersense used in their products was so transparent I can see how this company can be well received by the green beauty community.

Last but least, I wanted to share Innersense’s philosophy, which is labeled on the back of each bottle: Our unwavering commitment to Beauty Without Compromise is a reflection of our personal values and the products we create.  We formulate with the highest intention and purity.  Our products are formulated without phthalates, ethoxylates, sulfates, silicones, 1, 4 dioxane, parabens, petro compounds, propylene and butylene glycol, PEG, MEA, TEA, MIA, artificial dyes, synthetic fragrances, gluten, GMO’s, and always cruelty free.

Now, how beautiful was that?  I highly recommend everyone to experience this ritualistic hair ceremony Innersense products provide! For more information, check out their website, Innersense Beauty.  You can also purchase their products on Beauty Heroes or on Vitacost.

Don’t forget to always be beautiful, everyday.
