My Story


Hello there!

Thanks for peeking your head in to see about little ol’ me. I’m Candace. I work full-time in Las Vegas in the corporate world, and recently earned my Master’s degree in Strategic Organizational Leadership. Outside of business hours  you can find me in cyberspace posting pictures of green things, or hiking up a mountain with my tripod.

It started with an olive, now I’m here!

Allergies. Eczema. Chronic rhinitis. Acne. Sensitive skin. There’s a reason why those in my circle refer to me as a “delicate flower.” My current interest in holistic health and green beauty was the natural progression of my desire to avoid the harmful side effects of certain medications and irritating skincare products.  When I learned of the healing powers of olive leaf back in 2009, that research paved the way for my slight obsession with all things non-toxic, safe and sustainable. Recently diagnosed with uterine fibroids, my interest in natural healing has only intensified.

A Deeper Shade of Green

My only goal here is to provide you with enough information, reviews and tutorials to make your transition to cleaner beauty and natural wellness as smooth as possible. Most important to me is that women of color find products and adopt practices that work with all the shades, textures and intricacies of our melanated skin. To help me fulfill this goal, I do encourage you to reach out with any questions or requests along the way. I’m here for you!  You can shop my favorite products and resources here.

Skin is the largest organ of the human body. Rubbing it down with toxic chemicals is so 1995. 

Connect with me in the way most comfortable for you. I’m mainly on Instagram, and also on Pinterest and YouTube. If we share the same offline interests in professional writing, company culture, organizational leadership or nonprofit management, please connect with me on LinkedIn.

Be well!
