Hi! My name is Suzi, thanks for stopping by. If you have perused my blog at all, you realized I’m kind of into natural and green products. I would love to fill you in on my story and how I got here.
What do I do?? I’m glad you asked! I am an organic hair stylist…I’ve been obsessed with hair since I can remember and have been licensed for 12 years. I own my own salon and use natural, organic and ammonia free color. I also am a licensed esthetician, and nail technician, and have worked in both fields for 12 years. I went to college and graduated with a BS in PR/Advertising in between all my haircutting, facials and nail work. After working a bit in the field, I realized my love for people and creating was not being satisfied as I sat behind a desk. So… I started creating again…cutting, coloring, styling, painting and giving facials. Yep, I was in love. I live in probably the most beautiful state in the U.S….(Ok Hawaii you have a few cool things on us…namely sunshine) But us Washingtonians do have these mountains, trees and water that make it pretty breathtaking. You’re probably asking why “Gurl Gone Green”…???
So here’s the short of my journey so far. This quest on becoming obsessed with what I was putting on my skin, in my hair and everywhere else started when my mom bought me a book 5 years ago for Christmas called “No More Dirty Looks”…yes, please read it, and then read it again! It will hopefully change your life as it did mine. Now I can’t look at a tube of toothpaste without checking the ingredients. I had been aware of what I was putting in my body but had no idea what we put on our eyes, hair and everywhere else mattered too! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of those granola eating, no makeup wearing chicks! On the contrary, I still wear makeup, love experimenting with my hair and love being girly…(ok maybe I do eat granola…homemade of course). I want people to know you can still look fabulous even with natural products…Yes, look fabulous and feel good! As much as I love beauty, I’ve also become obsessed with eating clean, and living clean. It seems silly to be so careful with what skincare products you use yet go and grab a bag of Doritos…get my point?? I may not be putting chemicals on my face, but I’m certainly ingesting them! And don’t get me started on living green…did you know those chemical products you use to clean your bathroom with are actually doing you more harm then good?!
The largest part of my life is my family. I’m hardcore loyal and they are my biggest supporters and fans. My husband is everything I’m not and more. We welcomed our first child, our baby girl Finley into our lives in June 2014. She is everything I ever thought I wanted and more. This blog has definitely taken a new spin since becoming a mom. Can’t wait to continue this amazing adventure with you!
