Where did you grow up?
I grew up in a small neighborhood off of Memorial and Kirkwood zoned to Westside High School but went to Second Baptist school for Highschool and Holy Spirit Episcopal School. I still remember all of my teachers to this day.
If you were stranded on a desert island, what three beauty products would you like to have with you?
Coconut Oil for my skin. 2. Avocado (yes, just an avocado!) – for my hair. I just mush the avocado in my hair and rinse it out so it stays nice and moisturized. 3. My 100% pure (made only from fruit) – vegan lipstick or gloss, really anything with color.
Who or what has been the biggest influence on your personal style?
Probably being vegan because I am always looking for conscious products that are vegan but that are also very colorful. I love bohemian, natural, full of color, tropical style and vibes.
What is your favorite indulgence?
Probably Durian fruit.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
How people treat you is not a reflection of you, it’s a reflection of them and where they are in their lives. Therefore, have compassion not only for them but also for yourself because we are all doing our best to navigate through this life together.
What is your favorite Houston store and/or restaurant?
True Foods, Whole Foods. I will go anywhere where there is raw fruits and vegetables.
What’s on your plate? (Future projects, travel plans, etc.)
Probably I leave for Bali to do my retreat on Wednesday, October 17th until the middle of November. I am so excited to launch my new retreat series which I hope to roll out in more countries over 2019. Also, I just released my new FULLYRAW App (available on iTunes and the APP store), and I am so excited to release my holiday recipes (and Halloween recipes!). The Android version will be rolled out for the holidays.
How do you spend your down time?
With my family, reading, being in nature, or doing yoga. I also really enjoy the water – I am a Pisces. If you see me in my pics at a waterfall, you’ll know why!
Tell us one Houston Hidden Gem (places that aren’t necessarily well-known) that you recommend.
I love my Big Power Yoga… but in all honesty I love the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center where I had my co-op for around 8 years!
Tell us three of your favorite shopping/beauty/lifestyle websites.
Beauty & Lifestyle: www.evamorwater.com – I love the health benefits that this alkaline water offers. A body that is alkaline can not be diseased, and alkaline water can be seen to help cure cancer.
Shopping: https://www.stellamccartney.com/us – I love me some Stella. She is one of the only Vegan designers.
www.revolve.com – I love their cute online pieces and love mixing and matching from this site. Love their selection for online shopping.
Tell us three of your health/beauty tips.
Get a dog, walk a dog, love a dog.
What are three things you can’t live without? (Besides God, family, and friends.)
I can’t go to sleep without flossing and brushing my teeth… no, really fruits and vegetables, sunshine, and exercise.
Do you have any irrational fears?
I’m scared of the boogie man.
What is your favorite vacation spot?
Bali – Ubud.
If you weren’t in your present occupation, what would you dream of doing?
I would be some kind of an activist or leader who creates a good impact on the earth or a potter/artist. Who knows, I could also do a mean Doris Day!
What books or movies have you loved recently?
Paulo Coelho, Brene Brown, and anything having to do with food documentaries/ improving health especially “What The Health.”
Tree Hugger, Vegan, YouTube Celebrity Influencer, Raw Food Goddess
