Hi! My name is Molly K. Carter, your content creator and host of this site! Thank you so much for your interest in Health is Beauty, I know you will not be disappointed! I want to tell you bit about myself as well as how this site was born.
So lets jump right in, who am I?!
I am a hairstylist of fifteen years, I specialize in color with an emphasis in Blondes. My career is definitely one of my hobbies! Writing has always been a passion of mine since I was a kid, and I’ve more recently developed a sincere care for living a healthy lifestyle. As I stated in my blog ‘5 SURE ways to jumpstart a healthy lifestyle’ , I was NOT a health conscious person at ALL for most of my life! I was a book worm and hated playing outside or anything physical. Being the fat friend definitely created a ‘beauty’ complex and insecurities for me that I’m still working to overcome. It wasn’t until my early twenties that I really began to consider what I was putting in my body, as well as how physically active I was.
As you all know, how you feel in your body and the clarity of your mind is really what makes you feel completely amazing. I never knew the power that a simple morning cardio session could have on the rest of my day. Feeling accomplished, energized and strong makes for one amazing day. It also lessens the guilt of sneaking that piece of chocolate or having regular sweetener in your coffee vs, sugar free. Its amazing!
Now let’s be honest ya’ll, I’m not the healthiest NOR the most in shape person in the world. All I know is how my life and perspective of health and beauty has changed since I began to implement trying to live a healthier lifestyle! A lot of what I know and do is owed to my husband, Blake. We’ve been married for almost four years, and he’s remained a solid rock in so many areas, and health and fitness is one of them! He’s taught me so much about things to eat “instead” of what I would normally consume. You can check out my favorite ‘Food swaps’ Here!
Let’s face it, even if I was in tip top shape but my hair was a hot mess, I would not feel beautiful! I don’t know about you, but when my hair is a mess or my face is bare, I can barely function. Being a hairstylist, my daily life is filled with catering to others and making them feel gorgeous but I can’t give it my all if I don’t feel gorgeous myself! I try to put efficient effort into myself each day that I’m in the salon, not only for how clients will perceive me but also for myself!
Heres my equation for feeling my best everyday: Morning workout + hair and makeup done + healthy food consumed = confidence and good spirits!
Thus, this site was born through my long time desire and love for writing, beauty and a lifestyle that’s been curated over time. I really hope that this is as inspirational to you as it was to me creating it. Be sure to subscribe to be first to know the newest inspirations!
