BEAUTY IN REAL TIME

I’m a workaholic to the core. Part nature, part necessity, laziness and doing the bare minimum isn’t in my dna. With a brand currently in a major growth period, I’ve been in grind mode. The downside - my body gets beaten all the way up, and personal time becomes non-existent. As motherhood is the buzzword this week, I may not mother a child, but I sure as hell mother this business, at times sacrificing my physical health.

NOTES ON BEAUTY

In growing Highbrow Hippie, we’ve been mindful about the values that we project into the world. Our goal has always been to create a brand and company that embody a more inclusive and welcoming definition of beauty.If you’ve scrolled through our feed, you know we don’t ascribe to any specific ideal of beauty. We’re all about making space for everyone. Recently, someone criticized one our posts and commented that we were featuring and propping up a mainstream ideal of beauty.

goodnight, dear harry.

I needed to take a long moment (and cry a few tears) upon hearing of Harry Belafonte’s passing today. Because while I am under no delusion that our elders will live forever, when some leave us, the hurt is still visceral. A native son of my beloved island of Jamaica, he embodied “we over me” while breaking every barrier put before him, consciously blending his art with fierce activism. Witnessing that moved me and influenced my life in a profound way.

IN GRATITUDE // Keeping The Atelier In Order

This place. The Atelier.It’s a house for us all and that was always our intention from the beginning. We wanted it to be a space that was different, that was absent of all the hustle and noise of everyday life. From the beginning, we made sure the foundation of this house was infused with that intention. From the songs on our playlists to the scents that fill each room, every choice was and is made with the intention to make life a little more beautiful, more nurturing, and more peaceful.

Kadi + Myka's Simple Home Rituals

"Having a simplified, uncluttered home is a form of self-care." -Emma Schleb True - but maintaining an uncluttered home?  Easier said than done.  With the added layers of work, relationships, travel, family, kids, etc. onto life,  sometimes our lofty goals of maintaining simplicity in our homes for the sake of peace ends up making us feel...not peaceful.  It actually ends up causing more stress. There's only so much we can accomplish in a day and times feel more turbulent and unsteady than they ever have.  It says something about life when even Marie Kondo is touting that we lean into messiness.
