I like to think of S&G as a virtual coffee shop where women stop by to feel a sense of belonging and part of a community. A place where we sip coffee over conversations about our personal journey's with wellness, community, conscious living, best business practices, and more. A place women leave feeling informed, fueled, filled and (re)connected. And most importantly, a place where we encourage each other to rise (personally & professionally) to become women rooted in whole-istic balance & grace.

However, after learning my stressful lifestyle was deteriorating my health, I knew I needed to make a change and that change was not easy for a perfectionistic people pleaser. Eventually I learned to slow down, physically and mentally. I like to say I voluntarily dropped out of the so-called American Dream Race, which I personally entered and trained for most of my life. Instead I learned to breath deep, cook food to nourish my body, live more intentionally, bet on myself, find my own health routine and grasp the importance of living a life rooted in balance & grace - in mind, body, soul and home.
DON'T get me wrong, I forget everything I learned somedays. I eat plates of fries instead of veggies, I forget to slow down and I let worry take over. But part of learning how to live a balanced life is just learning how to rebalance and giving yourself continual grace to restart and keep growing. That's it!
I hope this blog serves as a place for you to grow in your knowledge of all things wellness, business and balance. Not work-life balance, but real whole-body living holistic balance. I am so glad you are here and truly can't wait to keep growing together. Send me a DM to say hello and head on over to the blog for more inspiration!
I'm a newly transplanted Raleigh girl who has called the ocean her home for the past 4 years. Before sailing the high seas, I did the typical 24/7 168 hour work week in a high stress job working with influential business leaders & celebrities. My life was my work and personal boundaries and balance didn't exist.
She was a women of grace, just as her name implied. Anna was an elegant lady who found joy in the little things. She loved a good laugh, a witty joke, a strong cup of tea, any sweets, pink lipstick, fashion, a nice pair of shoes and her Chanel perfume that left a beautiful aroma wherever she walked. Her home was always open to welcome family and friends in for tea and talk. I remember over 30 people crowded into her kitchen and living room, sitting on the floor, armchairs, stairs - anywhere they could fit in order to share tea and time with Granny. Super Gran's life was not easy, but her constant smile would make you think otherwise. She birthed 17 amazing children that grew up in the rolling hills of Ireland. And all 17 of them still share stories about their beautiful childhood and memories enveloped with laughter. They did not have a lot, but they had what they needed - love and laughter. When I reflect back on Super Gran, she is the woman I aspire to exemplify in character and heart. A women that saw the good in everyone and never passed judgement. She was a women of balance, rooted in grace.
We believe the definition of success is a balanced life. That having good health & being in control of your time is true freedom. We believe that grace, gratitude and a bit of grit are the virtues that make up a purpose driven business and a strong woman. We believe in encouraging women to rise, that community is essential for a healthy life and less is more. We believe great conversations with friends over a good cup of coffee is medicine to the soul. The purpose of good design is to create spaces where people want to gather, spend quality time together and, of course, foster community. We believe traveling helps open our eyes to how similar we all are, and how we desire the same things at our core - a life full of love. And most importantly, We believe that wellness and balance are the corner stones for a life well lived. So let's grow together.
'I am becoming better and better, day by day in each and every way. My body is becoming healthier. My mind is becoming steadier. My soul is becoming illuminated, to remove the fear inside. I am grateful, I am confident and I am enough.'

Here at S&G we believe balance is ever-changing and not a constant state. To us, balance means to be rooted; planted so we do not topple over as the winds of life and circumstances change. When we are rooted our foundation does not shift and it's easy to find our center again through grace.
Holistic balance is accepting where we are physically, mentally and emotionally, while also striving to be the best version of ourselves. We understand it's okay to be wildly imperfect. In other words we aren't extremists, because as soon as we start thinking we found balance, we lost it. We believe the happiest most balanced individuals are fluid and forgiving with themselves and their mindsets. They find joy in the small things and gratitude in all things. Balanced women are content individuals and that is why we are striving for a life rooted in balance and a bit of grace.
