It is going to be difficult to adequately sum up how amazing and impactful these women are. But, I’m going to give it a try.
Who She Is: Christine is a doctor, mother of two, and beauty/skincare addict from the Midwest with a flawless blog (seriously, it’s beautiful).
Why I Love Her: She tries a ton of products so you don’t have to. I never (like, EVER) buy a new skincare product without first consulting 15 Minute Beauty. Her product reviews are in depth, honest, and usually accompanied by some great picture graphics.
For my fellow beauty/skincare nerds out there, she gets into the science behind some of the products. Aaand even gives you the whys and the hows. Especially in her posts about sunscreen (which are my favorite because they are the absolute best). If skin cancer either runs in your family or you have skin cancer prone skin like I do, her sunscreen posts are a one stop shop. She gives you all the information you need to know about what your skin needs to be protected to the fullest and how. TL;DR Do not, I said DO NOT, buy new skincare of any kind without first consulting this blog.
Who She Is: Liz is a photographer, creator, DIY extraordinaire, and all-around Renaissance lady. “I believe that empowering women will change the world, that creativity makes souls come alive, and that life is meant to be lived bravely.” IN LOVE WITH HER, YET, WEAR YOUR VOICE READERS?
Why I Love Her: Shit, let me count the ways.
1. Her DIY creations, directions, and execution are off the goddamn charts. Also, they’re user friendly. So, if you consider yourself not very handy, don’t be scared. Let Liz be your DIY spirit guide. And they are not only DIY creations for the home, but also to revamp your wardrobe!
2. Her personal style is bold, unique and ever-growing. If you love pattern play, textures, and pops of color, Liz is your new style guru.
3. She has a crunchy/diy/all-natural approach to beauty, but still rocks the hell out of some bright lippies and winged liner. She also has the best hair in America and has some really great tutorials.
Who She Is: Marie is a goddamn ray of sunshine in Oakland by way of Chicago by way of Ann Arbor by way of Houston. Not only does she have the most adorable style, but she is also a talented musician. We are so lucky to have her in the Bay Area.
Why I Love Her: She has a down to earth voice, a contagious laugh (yeah, I’ve hung out with her #braggingrights), and an incredible ability to put a new spin on classic silhouettes.
She combines different textures, colors, layers, and hem lengths with such an exciting ease.
Her “My Boyfriend The Bartender” posts are everything. They give you all the information you need to make the most adorable drinks for the next party you throw.
Her posts on her style icons are to die for. And every so often, a post will come accompanied by a playlist of the music she is currently loving. So, if you didn’t already love Marie, just wait to read a post with her great music picks playing in the background.
Who She Is: Hanna is a proud new Earth mama, a master crocheter, and an outdoorslady living and loving in the Central Coast of Californ-i-a.
Why I Love Her: She is the definition of an old soul and gets so much joy from the little (but, the most important) things in life. She and her family live simply and, therefore, fully. In her most recent post, she discusses the ways they have simplified their lives and the positive impact it has had.
For me, nature is where I am happiest, where I can recharge my human batteries, and is 100x better than therapy (I’ve never been to therapy, but…work with me here). For the Ways, nature is home and they’ve already started teaching their little one that! Dressin’ that li’l nugget in flannels and takin’ him camping…seriously, it is the cutest thing you will ever see.
Every so often, Hanna will post a clean eats dish, accompanied by the recipe, that she loves too!
Also, if you need #relationshipgoals, look no further. Hanna and Zach are the most adorable couple in the universe.
Now, go forth, Wear Your Voice readers, and be inspired.
