Come meet me and learn more about why I do what I do
I’m someone others would call “good people”, despite my moments of doubt, insecurity, and even when I’m a hot mess. I love God, my kids, and my family and want the best for us. Though being a single mother is challenging, it’s a role where I find strength and purpose. I take pride in my courage to make a life altering choice that went against society, my core, and even my faith. But it was a choice that catapulted my life in the most meaningful and purpose-driven way. And though, sometimes, I can still be afraid and doubt-filled, I have learned effective tools to help me continue in the direction of wisdom, purpose, and balance. Those tools, along with a lot of authenticity and transparency, are what I share.
To me, the purpose of what I do is simple: to provide an avenue for folks to achieve wellness through purposeful self-care. I don't mean the "hide in the bathroom for 5 minutes for some peace" type of "self-care." I mean intentionally focusing on taking care of YOU. Not just physically either; your mental health is just as important.
Soap making started out as a therapeutic past-time for me. I have been doing it for over a decade and only in 2020 did I realize this was a gift worth sharing for real. My products are 100% natural, pure, and use only the best of the best ingredients.
I promise to give you authenticity, no matter what. Some days it will be beautiful and put together and overall lovely. Other days, I'll be a mess and barely hanging on. But THAT is the beauty of life and the meaning behind the name "Makeshift and Curated." Thank you for joining me on this journey.
