Self Care.

Self Care.

Love yourself has become such a byword, to the point of cheesiness even & perhaps a tinge of cringe. It has become our modern day solution to everything "oh you know, you gotta love yourself a little more.." And you know, it couldn't be more true. Or more needed in this fast paced day & age.

The Rose Geranium Line

To understand the reason behind the Rose Geranium line, I must first allow you a peek into my earlier personal life.
