Aloha! I'm Malia, I'm so happy you are here! I'm a clean beauty activist, work from home single mama of 2 amazing boys plus a labrador pup. I have an obsession with re-arranging furniture, I love hanging with my sons, and I have deep deep cravings for Starbuck's almond croissants. Honestly, isn't everything better on a croissant?
I'm a former early childhood education teacher and self-proclaimed introvert. Being a Hawaii native, I face the uphill battle of sky high cost of living. So after leaving teaching to work with my father's steel company, I chose to supplement my income through direct sales. My first experience was a learning curve, and in 2017 I stumbled upon Beautycounter. You can read my full Beautycounter story here.
Being a stay-at-home/work-at-home single mom has its own set of challenges. And if that's your gig, you know what I mean. Through my work with Beautycounter over the past 3 years, I've been able to meet and connect with so many women and moms and hear about their lives. I also attend networking events, church groups, and am part of several online communities. I hear common struggles from moms at home and decided we all need more connection, support, and helpful resources. If I can help provide solutions to daily challenges and make your life (and mine!) a little more balanced, a little less stressed, and a lot more en-JOY-able, I would be so honored!!
So this blog is dedicated to you, my friend. My goal is to provide you with something that will make your mom life journey brighter; and give you more insight into the clean beauty movement. You deserve to wear your title with honor and feel amazing about what you're doing. Let's rock this role out together!
If you know any moms who are looking for more connection, support, encouragement, or resources, please invite them to subscribe to my email list or join me on Instagram or Facebook. I'm so happy you're here!
