About Lara

5 20 18 (2)Hi! My name is Lara, & it is pronounced LAH_ruh. I tell you that because people consistently say my name incorrectly. My name comes from the movie & book Dr. Zhivago. My parents named me after Lara’s Theme; a very beautiful piece of music by Maurice Jarre.

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. As far as I can remember, I have loved reading in particular self-help/improvement books. Needless to say, I know the importance in healing self from the inside out and how detrimental it is when we ignore certain things or don’t improve our life.

I started blogging in February 2009 and by October of the same year, I started another blog. The first blog was all about natural alternatives I put into practice in my own life. The other blog I shared insights, my poetry, recipes, & reflections of my life.   August 5, 2017 marks the date of Holistic Beauté Loop coming to life.

I’m multi-passionate and have a love of learning; I am forever a student of life.  I have a love for taking excellent care of my skin and keeping up with the beauty industry (as best as I can). I have taken many classes: bridal consulting, business, graphic design, fashion merchandising, color analysis, creative writing, voice performance, & holistic and natural health. I’m very much into all The Arts. Writing has always been a favorite because it is where I can combine my passions.

This maybe a personal website, but with hopes it will improve your life in some way, even if it’s just in a little way.

Much love & peace!
