THE FOUR ELEMENTS OF INNER + OUTER RADIANCE
I've been following this site + instagram since the beginning, as I'm forever inspired by women challenging the norm, birthing a project out of thin air, and a desire to shift people's perception about what beauty really is, as it's different for all of Us. Yet it's something that unifies us as women. Something we can share, bond, and connect over.
I love Laney's fresh approach to beauty, as she really embodies the fact that it's an inside job - and it will forever and always be this journey. But it's also about marrying the external via green beauty, with the internal in the most holistic and light filled way.
I could go on, but I'll let Laney share her glow, the way she flows, and how her daughter is her biggest inspiration.
These four elements of inner + outer radiance can unify us, draw us closer, and help us see that we're all just trying to shine our light the only way we know how.
Through being ourselves.

My daughter motivates me everyday. I want her to have the best role model to look up to.

Be kind to everyone from the janitor to the assistants to your boss. Be proud of who you are when you get home at the end of the day.

I drink 2-3 liters of water a day, often with lemon, I eat raw and plant-based for most of the day, I meditate every morning, and I find moments of self-care throughout the day.

Simple smoothies without a lot of ingredients (my favorite is berries, banana, and spinach with homemade cashew milk). I love crudité too, especially with my “famous” homemade herb dip (recipe is in my highlights).
