About Consciously Classy

I'm Amie, and like many of you other beauties out there, I am captivated by lipstick, colorful scarves, and other luxuries life has to offer. I also, however, see beauty in being kind to ourselves, one another, and the planet that we call home.

They may be forgotten in five minutes, or they may still resonate after ten years of passing. They may fill our hearts with incidental joy, or keep our hearts physically beating.

No matter the scale of importance, however, all of these things add to our vitality. Valuing small pleasures is equally as imperative as doing so for greater things, as they can be an easily accessible comfort at the end of a bad day. Unfortunately, you didn’t get the job promotion you had been hoping for, but at least you have your nightly skincare routine to look forward to. Continue reading
