I’m Tarah a/k/a “Juice”, that has been my nickname for as long as I can remember. Thank you mom and dad ((HUGS)). I have three amazing kids that keep me busy, inspired, and determined to live a life with joy, adventure and unconditional love. I also LOVE the beach… I am a total water girl.
Born into a loving but very busy family. My dad or “Chief” is an electrician by trade, my mother leads programs for non for profit and they also owned multiple businesses with their goal to provide the best life possible for us. Through many landscape and renovation projects I was taught to work hard at a young age and I am grateful for all that I learned. I wasn’t graced however, with the gift of moderation.. LOL or so they say…
I would call myself a student of life, studying all things that interest me. Once I was free to go out into the world on my own, I knew I needed to find my own path. Though creativity and design has always been in my bones, I studied and practiced as a registered massage therapist, and soon after got married and built the first house. We designed and did the majority of the work with the guidance of my father, I was proud of what I achieved and was capable of, this sparked my entrepreneurial bug.
At 21, I found an old dated barber shop in a great location and decided to take on the project and transform it into a modern day salon and spa. I spent the next few years learning about business and how to grow and market it, but ultimately this is where my journey of holistic living and how natural methods were helping so many of my clients really began.
I've always been a creative and visual person, designing spaces, photo styling, as far back as I can remember. This comes from my love for being able to capture and tell a story. After selling the business to be home with my twin girls, it opened the doors to additional home builds and several renovation projects, then came my son, and from there I decided to study interior design, photography, and branding.
I spent many years in the kitchen exploring my creativity and I love to cook. After a bit of a health hiccup, that led me on a self discovery journey to learn how to live more in tune with nature. I love to re-create classic family recipes and new ones from a more natural, whole foods approach.
During this journey Essential Oils became a huge part of my life. After using them on a daily basis, for emotional wellbeing, natural immune support, in recipes, and overall wellness. I LOVE the benefits I have experienced from these natural plant extracts and I love to share just how useful they are.
Meditation and Mindfulness practices also became a part of my life, I believe in the power and impact these tools have on our well-being, so much so, I again, decided to dive in so I could learn and share the science and philosophy behind these ancient practices.
As moms I feel we are always looking for a sense of balance and a way to bring more ease and flow into each day, and that we all deserve to live our best juiciest lifestyle - however that looks to each of us!
Juice - xoxo
