Regaining My Confidence 

   For only being 15 I have sure been through a lot. I have struggled with the most horrid anxiety for more than half of my life and my acne was just another thing I had to worry about. I started wearing makeup when I was 11, for me it was something fun that I could do in order to feel creative without needed to leave the comfort of my bedroom. When I was 13 I started to develop acne, it started as a few blemishes here and there but the worst was to come when I started developing cystic acne a.k.a the worst kind of acne. My face hurt 24/7 because of these inflamed and upset clogged pores that seemed to never want to go away. I started caking on loads of makeup to cover up this insecurity of mine which in the long run was making my skin worse.

I tried everything under the sun to try to clear these breakouts but all they did was cause me to breakout more because of  all the harsh chemicals that were packed into them. At this point I started to give up on trying to find something to help because I just thought that this was something I would have to deal with for the rest of my teens. Little did I know this was all about to change.

About two months ago my mama and I were headed to our local farmers market just to wander and we found ourselves at Christina's booth, I was instantly intrigued by all of the yummy smells and pretty packaging and did I mention Christina's inviting and warm personality? 

I had about a million questions for her and of course she gladly answered them and showed me what products would work best for my skin. We got to talking about doing an online shoppe where people can buy her products easily all year long. That night I went home and started brainstorming ideas for this website that you are currently on. In about a month we went from this idea to this reality. While I was doing this I got the chance to try out all of her wonderful products and see the effects on my own skin. I was also doing what I love which is designing and making something beautiful.
