Beautiful Voices is our ongoing blog series that highlights inspiring, empowering women. Our most recent Beautiful Voice is May Blom. See what she says when Annmarie asks her some questions about her own personal beauty.
May Blom lives in Todos Santos, Mexico from November–April, and then in the Lake Tahoe area. This will be her 3rd year going to Mexico. Before that, she was in Steamboat Springs, CO and had a hotel with her husband. She has always loved the outdoors—favorites being playing tennis, mountain biking and hiking. While she was in Colorado, her health wasn't up to how she liked it. May happened to find Renegade Health online and has continued to be a follower. Annmarie's skin line was an added feature, which she now couldn't do without! May has tried other natural products and nothing compares to Annmarie's.
May has 3 children, ages 26, 24 and 22. They all live in Tiburon, CA. She is in a transition period right now figuring out what she wants to do when she grows up! On this journey she has discovered what really matters is knowing your true self, really going deep within. What makes May's life fulfilling is the love amongst family and friends.
What was your biggest challenge and how did you overcome it?
My biggest challenge has been to realize I am a beautiful person and have so much love to give to others, but most importantly myself! I can now say to myself, “I love you. You are a great person and have much to offer.”
What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
The best piece of advice I have received is to receive the gifts that are given to you in the present moment. That could mean just a smile on a child's face or a butterfly still on a beautiful flower in front of you.
Who or what is your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration happens to be my parents—I love how youthful and happy they always are. They live a rich, fulfilling life with great friends and family. To me, that is what it is all about.
Where and when do you feel most at peace?
I feel most at peace sitting on the beach looking out at the ocean or a lake, reading, fishing, meditating, whale watching, bird watching.
Hiking is also peaceful. I suppose it's nature that puts me in a quiet state.
What does beauty mean to you?
To me, beauty means to feel good within your deeper self. In other words, if you feel good about yourself, then your beauty within will radiate.
How does Annmarie's mission fit into your lifestyle?
Annmarie's lifestyle fits into mine in the sense that she sees beauty is within and once we feel that way, our outer body will show beauty. That is a natural process, as is her skin line which I absolutely love! My face has never looked so good or felt so good as when using Annmarie's products!
What are your words of wisdom to other beauties out there?
My words of wisdom to all you beauties is to love and be kind to yourself! Enjoy your life and remember it is all about you!
Isn't she beautiful?
