I was born and raised in the suburbs of Connecticut and that’s where I reside right now! I'm 22 years old and I’m studying business marketing with a minor in communication at The University of Hartford (graduating in May 2019!). My whole life I have stood out because of my crazy curly hair. People always look out for those big blonde curls! After years spent trying to fight the curls, I have learned to love my unique locks! Curly hair care and self confidence was the initial reason why I wanted to start blogging. Us curly girls gotta stick together! With my blog I want to make sure all curly girls learn to LOVE their curls, but most importantly, I want all my readers to feel our very best and unapologetically ourselves.
My studies in marketing and communications has sparked my love for writing and connecting with others. Along with that passion, I’ve been interested in diet and exercise for a few at least 5 years now. When I first started a social media platform besides my personal account, I was “fitness blogging” on Instagram. I blogged all about my weight loss journey in 2016/2017, when I lost 21 pounds, on my account called FitWithCloClo. I started incorporating more beauty and fashion posts on that account because I got so many questions about my hair! I finally branched out and started my own blog called Curls & Coco all about curly hair and beauty. This was something I wanted to do for so long! I always looked up to so many awesome bloggers who were paving the way.
In 2016, I started seeing a nutritionist because I was interested in learning more about mindful eating and healthier habits. In addition, my mother suffers from autoimmune diseases and I have psoriasis and eczema, which initially sparked my curiosity about wellness and using food as medicine.
Today, I’m focused on self care, self confidence, and finding joy in living a meaningful life. Sharing and connecting with others does all three for me! I am on a mission to figure out what wellness really means.
With this blog I want to share my thoughts, passions, and interests with others because I know what it’s like to feel uncomfortable in my own skin! This blog is all about feeling our best and seeking happiness from the inside, out. SIMPLY, OURSELVES! I know that when I feel good within, it shows on the outside! Everyone deserves to feel beautiful and live their best life, which is what I want to do with this blog. I finally found an outlet where I can connect on a personal level with a community of like minded individuals…
And my lifestyle blog Simply Chloe Sarah was born in November 2018!
