So you may have noticed, but some things are looking a little different around here. Or, if you are following me on social media then you may have already heard there that we have REBRANDED!

To be honest when I started this blog I didn’t know what I was doing. I didn’t have a niche. I was afraid to use my own voice. Long story short I lost interest and ran out of ideas because I was spending too much time trying to please everyone and not scare anyone off.

Authentic might mean swearing- sorry not sorry

Well guess what? My time is fucking precious and I will not spend it doing anything less than being myself. I took a break from blogging and ran off drafts and turned to microblogging on Instagram. My passion is and always has been to provide health and wellness content for those who don’t identify with the usual highly curated, totally precious nonsense that dominates most of the health and wellness sphere.

Health is not just for gorgeous leggy model types, it is also for all of us just struggling to get healthy despite all our kids and responsibilities.

This is why I changed the name of this site to… Healthy Living for Hot Messes!

Watch out for that rebrand- Healthy Living for Hot Messes!

At my core I am about bringing approchable, realistic and #relatable healthy living content to fabulous average Janes- people just like me!

This name suits my vibe, values, mission and purpose perfectly.

For any of my readers, thank you for being here and I hope you stick around. For anyone new, I look forward to having you in my clutches soon. Sign up for my newsletter and follow my social channels. Especially Instagram because I blog there more than here #lazy

The whole rebrand might take some time so if there’s glitches or things not working in the meantime, please be patient!

Feel Free to Share!

I am part of a fantastic business group and a concept came up there that is pure genius- the BIG ASK.

Basically the premise was that you don’t know what you might get if you just ask.

So here is my big ask- If you know someone who would enjoy my site or like my content feel free to share the shit out of it! I am building an empire and want y’all in on it.

My Shop

Also, we now have a SHOP!! That means you can represent your favorite obscure barely read blog in style.

    Agree with finding your authentic voice…I seem to have several authentic voices, haven’t figured out how to rein them in yet. Definitely a hot mess.

    1. MandiEm January 22, 2018 at 3:14 pm

      I think lots of us feel that way. Just let them run free and see what happens πŸ˜‚ that’s my current strategy lol
