what we do

behind the blog

Hi, I'm Ilse (il-say).
welcome to my digital home

I'm a writer, lifestyle blogger, and mother sharing my journey of cultivating inner peace and finding moments of beauty and joy in the day-to-day.

We all have pivotal life moments. For me, one of those was becoming a mother. Having littles helped me see life through a different lens; one rooted in letting go of perfection and embracing the perfectly imperfect moments that make life whole. Here, I explore intentional living and how it flows into style, motherhood, living, (and thriving) in today's fast-paced culture.

Who is the modern, intentional woman?

Resilient and driven. Vulnerable and caring. The modern, intentional woman lives in harmony with her duality.

She believes in taking inventory of what brings her joy and peace so that she may create space for what matters most to her.

Her version of a beautiful life is cultivated from mindful practices, rejecting hustle culture, and embracing the simple beauty around her.
