In the immortal words of RuPaul, “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?” Self love and self care are concepts that can be difficult to wrap one’s head around, especially in this day and age of intense distractions — technology, careers, relationships, the media, the environment we live in, personal obligations — that take away time to ourselves to just be… us. The Girls Girl Club strives to offer our members opportunities to be yourself, to disconnect from the world around you and all that weighs you down, and to make friends in the process.

Not that we’re biased, but our friend Lauren Bragg is pretty amazing. She is a local lifestyle and goal coach in Santa Barbara, and radiates joy in everything she does. We hosted a goal setting workshop with her at MadeWest Brewing Company back in May, and hope to continue to work with her to plan future events.

When Lauren posted a link to her latest blog on Instagram, we leapt at the chance to share with our members. Follow the link below to be immersed in Lauren’s endless joy and positivity.
