un peu de tout

Un peu de tout {œ̃ pø də ty} - French for a "little of everything" - which is what you'll find here! So sit back, grab a glass of Pinot Noir and dig in! 

For as long as I can remember I've loved to sing and act and experiment with make-up and skincare. 

As a performer, I learned that using products that would hold up under stage lighting but wouldn't break me out was challenging. It wasn't until I was introduced to clean beauty that I found a solution to both of those issues. Now, my goal is to share the benefits of using cleaner, more eco-friendly products, both on-stage and off!

I'm also a big advocate of wellness and using different forms of Art (singing, design, writing) as part of my self-care practice. This blog is a compilation of everything I love and do (un peu de tout) and I hope you enjoy what you find here!
