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. I have over 40 years experience in writing. 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-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 (neither of them exist now). 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.
Natural and holistic alternatives have been a part of my life for over 30 years due to I was born with Systemic Candidiasis. It was not diagnosed properly until I was in my late teens. The older I become, the more important I see it is to be the CEO of my own health. If you want to know more about this story, you may read this. On top of my own health issues, my father passed away from cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, after an almost ten year battle with it. My mom has battled with cancer twice. It is because of these conditions with myself and family I have learned natural, holistic, and homeopathic medicine as well as eating clean, organic food is the way to go when it comes to healing self. I keep learning to heal my gut, my brain, & my body through everything I do, think, and say.
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 even went to school for the esthetician license. 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!
