About Author

taken 12 13 17 I am a student of life, and an individual who loves to learn. I hope with the knowledge I have, I can educate, encourage, uplift, inspire, and influence others to be the best version of themselves.  Everything on this website either comes from me personally doing and using or from professionals who are in the field of which I write. May the information be accurate, true data, and will not lead you astray; hopefully, it will improve the quality of your life. I just want to share what I have learned from the health experiences to problems and issues I have had to benefit your life.  Life is too short not to learn from other people, so here’s to improving all of our lives.

A bit of background on me, I started writing poetry in fifth grade and found a love of writing in general. I have a binder full of poetry I have written over the years.  Writing is therapeutic, and it has helped me with many different life lessons.

The very first blog I started was in February 2009 on Blogger.com titled Natural Options/Alternatives by Lara. I started this blog due to all of the past health issues I had growing up and into my adulthood. I had Candidaisis, an overgrowth of yeast in the intestinal tract, which led me down a very long road of multiple health issues. The older I become, the more I have tuned in & listened to my body plus the more I have turned to natural and alternative ways to heal myself.

Then in October 2009, I started blogging on WordPress.com with Lara’s Insights & Tips.  It was a personal blog where I shared insights, quotes, bible scripture, poetry, and reflections of what I have experienced in life.  It was where I wanted to show my father’s example and influence in my life as he was a man of the Gospel.  He taught me so much in how to be a good person and how to live the right way.  In May 2013, I moved this blog to Blogger.  August 5, 2017 marks the date of Holistic Beauté Loop coming to life.

As far as formal education, I have an AAS in Medical Office Management and have been in the medical insurance and medical office fields doing a variety of office duties for the last several years.  Prior to then, my work experience was either in clerical/office positions or retail. My education consists of Esthetician school to Bridal consulting school to Business school which I graduated with honors in each (obtaining licenses or diplomas). I love to learn and have taken classes in Graphic Design, Fashion Merchandising, Color Analysis, Creative Writing, Voice Performance, & Holistic Health, so as you can see I love The Arts. I can definitely be called a renaissance woman when it comes to my education, work experience, and my passions. Writing has always been a favorite because it is where I can combine my loves.

In the last couple of years, I have not written much as I have been focusing on improving myself. It was something I deeply needed and that will be shared on this website. This website will encompass all of the above, not just one facet of my life.  Yes, this maybe a personal website, but with hopes that it will improve your life in some way, even if it’s just in a little way.

Much love & peace!
