I have created this blog to share healthy recipes, wellness tips, natural products, clean beauty, creativity, design, life + style. A good dose of health with a good dose of style.
Hi! I’m Riane. Creator of her healthy style. Thank you so much for stopping by!
I hope to be a healthy influence for you in more than one way. From healthy recipes, to self-care rituals, clean beauty, and design + style inspiration galore.
I grew up in Wisconsin, but I have lived in Chicago for over 15 years now. My schooling does not include a health degree (I have a Bachelors in Business), however, I was brought up in a more holistic and healthy environment growing up. I was born at home with a midwife, my dad is a Chiropractor, and my mom raised us on mostly healthy cooked meals from scratch when we were younger. Although I have tested all the unhealthy choices over the years, a healthier, holistic way of living always resonated with me.
It’s been over 10 years now that I have really focused on what I am putting in my body. I’ve learned a lot over the years from following Kimberly Snyder (a holistic wellness expert and nutritionist), the Blue Zones (the world’s longest living cultures), and these past few years Medical Medium – who I can attribute his celery juice & heavy metal detox smoothie along with the wealth of information in his books for turning my health back around when nothing else would. An accumulation of environmental toxins had me extremely sick for over two years. Although a horrible experience, I learned so much going through it all. My passion for eating and living healthy has grown exponentially because of it.
With all of this said, I am not perfect and nor do I want to be! Living healthy to me also means indulging on occasion guilt free. When I don’t deprive myself those times to eat/do whatever I please even if it’s not always the healthiest, it actually keeps me on this path of a healthy lifestyle. I never feel deprived of anything I really want this way and it makes me appreciate how I live. Plus, I am reminded of how great I feel when I do make healthier choices on the norm.
Living a healthy style fuels me, but design and style is where my brain runs wild! Beautiful surroundings make me tick. I love creating beautiful spaces to evoke a sense of feeling. I am always styling my home. I feel when you are surrounding with spaces that bring you joy, it lights you up inside.
Modern, Organic, Mediterranean, Retro, Boho, Classic, & Unique are some of the styles I enjoy.
Random tidbits about me…
I would describe myself as an independent, creative spirit. I am an Aquarius, so apparently I am known for my spontaneous, persistent, balanced, passionate, yet witty nature. Let me know if I fall short of any of those. I love baths, fresh greens and flowers, cultured music & food, farmers markets, fresh bars of soap, 100% dark chocolate, a cup of really good coffee & a glass of wine (all on occasion), vintage/thrift shops, coffee table books, architectural digest, skincare products, and crystals – even though I don’t know what they all mean.
I love to ground in the grass when I can, follow the sun on walks, and pay attention to the birds, sunsets, moon & stars when I can see them. Although I enjoy yoga, there is nothing like taking a walk outside. Just don’t use the term “hike” with me. I think of dusty dirt and getting bitten by bugs in dry heat.
Door County & Tulum are my two “happy places.” I have actually only been to Tulum twice, but I plan to go back.
After my nighttime bath, if I don’t go right to bed or feel like reading, I turn on Golden Girls for a little bit. It winds me right down. Rose & Sophia☺
At the center of my world is my husband who makes me laugh on the daily. He also helps me with technical stuff behind this blog. I’m tech adverse; mostly because I don’t want to take the time to learn it. I’m working on that.
I am continually learning & growing and would love to share how I’m living, eating, and styling with you!
Grateful you are here!
