The 30 Day Self Love Challenge Checklist

Make self love and self care part of your daily routine with our 30 Day Self Love Challenge Checklist. 30 acts of self love and self care that will transform you from the inside out and make choosing yourself and choosing happiness a delicious daily habit. In the past, we've done 30 day self love challenges with a designated challenge for each day, which for some led to feelings of pressure, disappointment, failure and wanting to give up when a day was missed. (Literally the opposite of what we were trying to accomplish). With this checklist, you can engage with the challenge...

Learn About Our Partners For The Week, The Breasties!

Our Relationship To The Breasties Ovarian cancer awareness month is this month, and breast cancer awareness month starts next week. And while our company has always promoted taking care of yourself and putting yourself first, our focus is typically more specific to self love and self care than health education and advocacy. So why the sudden partnership with The Breasties? Within the last year, we connected with Paige More (@paige_previvor), a fellow tribe member and co-founder of The Breasties, and learned that there was quite of bit of overlap between our world and her world. Her role with The Breasties is to empower women to take charge...

Celebrity Matchmaker and Alessandra Conti Shares Her Perspective On Why Self Love is Key to a Successful Relationship

Before diving into the questions, tell us a little bit about your background and how you came to be a matchmaker! I always refer to myself as a "sandbox matchmaker" because I have been setting up my friends since before it was socially acceptable!  My sister - co-founder of Matchmakers In The City - and I grew up in a small town where there was very little to do, so we would rent out venues and throw parties and invite all of the cute boys from neighboring high schools and all of our fabulous girlfriends. We were always little social butterflies, and would...

The One Who Saved Herself

"You Gotta Love Yourself Boo. Let’s get real for a moment with a topic that’s close to my heart, self-love. Self-love isn’t getting the love it should as often as it should. I get it, especially as women, we tend to put others first. Sometimes it’s our families, friends and sometimes even work. Whatever it is, the self-love gets put on the back burner and that needs to stop! Self-love needs to be at the front of our minds at all times. Just as they advise to put the oxygen mask on yourself before you helping others, your self-love needs...

The One Who Keeps Fighting

"There is a quote by Kaci Diane that floats around the internet from time to time: “I love the woman that I’ve become because I fought to become her.” The mantra of self love is something I rely on daily.  I have struggle with Depression since I was a little girl. It followed me growing up between spilt parent houses, to sleepovers, on dates, in classrooms, to work. I felt mortified that I had to be given a pill in order to be "Normal". The weight of that insecurity led me to feel unconfident growing up, as if everyone could...

Dr. Shannon Chavez on Why Masturbation is One of the Best Forms of Self Care

How would you define self-care?  Self-care is anything you do intentionally to take care of your overall health and wellbeing. There are mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual components. It is an intention with willingness and commitment to feeling like your best self. It is key to mental health and improves mood and the relationship you have to self and others. It’s not forced or something you don’t enjoy. It’s not self-indulging or selfish. It is up to you to determine what you need for self-care. It looks different for everyone and starts with considering your needs and not comparing yourself...

Friday Feature: Hydrowarrior Gabrielle

Hi love, tell us a little bit about yourself! I’m Gabrielle. I’m 25 and I was diagnosed with Hydrocephalus in 2016 after two tough years of misdiagnoses.  For those of us who are not familiar with it, can you explain what it is? Hydrocephalus is a chronic, at the moment incurable, neurological condition that affects the brain. It is a build up of cerebral spinal fluid in the skull causing the ventricles to become dangerously enlarged, causing the fluid to not properly drain to the rest of the body. This, in turn, puts unnecessary and dangerous pressure on the brain and causes it...

The One Who Inspires

"Since childhood, I have been raised as a traveler due to my father's job. I've had to adjust to different countries and cultures time after time. All throughout, I grew a passion to be kind and love each person that I meet. I am committed and determined to be an inspirer, to match the frequency of my heart with every soul I meet. I recently came to a point in my life where I realized that while I choose to give the world happiness, I don't love myself enough. After all, how can I inspire others if I don't inspire...

The One Who Made Her Destiny

“I love my ring and it is a daily reminder that I am the maker of my own destiny! I have forever struggled with insecurities and self doubt. It took me hitting rock bottom and losing things I hold so dear to my heart to realize it all starts with me.  How could I fully love someone or believe they could fully love me without loving myself?? Every day is a struggle but every day I am now waking up and choosing myself. I will love myself first in order to get the greatness I deserve! Thank you for being...
