I do not trust advertisements on television. I am certainly not one of those people who sits up watching late night cable dialing in for the newest in skin care, workout equipment, or nutrition supplements. I trust my friends. My family. Folks who can offer me sound advice based on years of experience. (Call me old fashioned.) When I met Libby about a year ago, we chatted for a bit, asking each other the usual (where are you from, what do you do for a living?). I was curious when she referred to herself a “wellness resource.” I inquired further, and found that instead of a talking infomercial head, she was the real deal when it came to lifestyle consultants.
She’d begun her lifestyle consultancy a few years prior, and was looking to build a business centered around bringing awareness to women: of how special and valuable they are. “Caring for themselves is of great value, because each woman’s growing confidence brings value to those around them.” Libby grew up on the move, and fitting into new schools became the greatest challenge of her young life.
“I didn’t know who I was, I didn’t have a particular style, or something that just screamed: me. I would have loved to have someone mentor me, especially through those awkward years.” Putting her focus as an adult towards empowerment techniques and specialty branding, Libby has grown into a powerhouse with over 22 years in the style and wellness industry.
“I delight in group gatherings, because that is where women connect with each other,” says Libby. But it isn’t just about ladies’ nights and massage therapy. Lifestyles by Libby works on the interior as well as the exterior: and offers a bit of bling to spice up even the most dull of weeks. A believer in the power of restorative minerals, Libby works with products from the Dead Sea. Nourishing bodies with organic alkaline wellness products that don’t taste like you dug them out of a green waste trash can, and rejuvenating the skin with mud masks; specifically formulated to offer the maximum hydration and elasticity to the skin on one’s face. In fact, studies have shown that said masks are proven to assist in the treatment of psoriasis and rosacea, as well as eliminating wrinkles without the need of surgeries, injections, or prescriptions.
“I feel I can identify with the woman who is a bit tentative on self-care as well as the sophisticate who is fashion forward.” What a blessing to someone like me, who has voluntarily self-identified as fashion challenged for most of her life; one who still has trouble French braiding hair and is overwhelmed by the color options when I visit the nail salon with friends.
Libby had just the solution for me: nail wraps. Colorstreet, which Libby swears by, has been in the making for the last ten years - and made in the USA, creating a nail wrap with 100% real nail polish. “These aren’t stickers, and no heating is involved. They apply in minutes and one nail strip package equals two mani/pedis, so it is incredibly affordable, convenient, and fast.” I loved that they were simple and no stress, and offered some fun looks that I wouldn’t necessarily have tried at a salon (think solid, glitter and French designs). And you can throw them on over another manicure, pedicure, gel nail, or even a bare nail, as I am most often wont to have.
Specializing in helping women feel extraordinary about themselves is no small feat. But Libby has been joyously active in offering solutions to the stressed, overworked, sleep-deprived for years, and isn’t about to back down. Especially since, in her time away from the business, she is surrounded by two adult sons and a husband of 37 years. “I love the girl factor!” That’s a perspective I trust.
