Interview with Monique from The Beauty Journal
We had the pleasure to have a chat with the gorgeous Monique from The Beauty Journal. Let's see what she shared with us!
I am Monique Peters and I love... Spending time with people who make my soul sing, nourishing my body with wholesome organic food and diving into the ocean on a summers day.
I trust in... the universe and that I am exactly where I am suppose to be.
I find it hard to... switch off from my work! I truly love what I do.
I feel frustrated when... I see greenwashing. It’s hard enough for people to understand how to read an ingredients list let alone be fooled into thinking they are buying something “natural” when it’s the total opposite.
I am thankful for... my loving husband, my supportive family and my soul sisters.
When I wake up in the morning... I lay there for a little minute and ask my body “how can I best serve you today” I used to have an exercise regime all planned out but now I really tap into body’s natural state of flow and I do what feels right.
When I go to bed, I think about... what exciting things tomorrow will bring
If I could give advice to my 18-year-old self, I’d tell her that... she is beautiful and to stop worrying what other people think
I have chosen to support the natural beauty trend because... I am extremely passionate about health, wellness and the planet. I believe we all vote with our dollar and I am on a mission to educate and empower as many people as I can about making conscious lifestyle and beauty choices.
My favourite makeup item is... Lipstick – I always feel bare without a pop of colour on my lips
The skin care item I can’t live without... an antioxidant-rich serum or face oil.
What to Try: La Mav Antioxidant-Rich Nightly Repair Nectar
When I have to do my makeup in less than 5 minutes, I always apply... concealer, eyelash curler, mascara, brow gel, Crème blush and a lippy!
I am obsessed with... smoothie bowls, essential oils, cacao, infrared sauna’s and my natural makeup and skincare collection
I want to... always choose love over fear
And I don’t want to... look back on my life with any regrets.
My mantra for happiness is… “my body is healthy, my mind is brilliant, my soul is tranquil”
Beauty is... everywhere
Don’t forget to... always choose the present moment.
