ABOUT ME

I’m Asa. I like my products like I like my people- non-toxic. I saw that somewhere and stole it. I’m pretty laid back and usually carry on with minimal makeup and natural curls but sometimes I like to glam it up a bit: a pop of color from a bright lipstick can be enough to change my whole outlook.

THE GAL BEHIND THE BLOG

I’m a forty-something native Texan turned New Yorker, living in the Mid West.  I am also an English teacher, and now a technophobe blogger (which I still cannot believe). I have been gray since 39 and have an autoimmune disease that has resulted in a complete lifestyle overhaul. This is why I’m all about using safer products with real ingredients and eating real food. 

I am a late bloomer. After floundering around in college for what seemed like forever (probably longer if you ask my dad) eventually obtaining a culinary degree, an English degree, and an MS in education, I finally felt like a grown-up. Well, for the most part. I started my career late, found and married the love of my life late, and had our beautiful daughter at, “an advanced maternal age” (their words, not mine).

I am married to my best friend and we have an amazing daughter and a Siberian cat named Tatum (aka Tatey, Tater Tot, Tater, Floofer, and Fluffy Butt). I adore our little family.
