our mission

blended is a lifestyle brand with a core mission to support people of color in embracing and incorporating the six elements of self-care into their lives

meet our founder

"blended is the offspring of my self-care journey that started as an acknowledgment of my own poor mental health, loss of creativity, and disconnection from community.

not prioritizing self-care brought me to a point where i didn't recognize who i was. i couldn’t feel connected to myself or my community because i could no longer show up as the person i wanted to be.

on my journey of healing and rediscovery, i learned that prioritizing myself had to be a part of my lifestyle - something i practiced every single day. and this practice is what led me back to myself and back to my creativity.

blended is where i create joy through products that turn self-care into daily practice. a guide to help us show up as who we truly are, and a place where we have a community that supports us."
