It is always good to surround yourself with intentional words and creations. Image Consultant and Tastemaker, Arryana Tate, is one of these people that embodies that saying. She founded the community, Luxe Girl Diaries as a self-growth and accountability partner for a feminine lifestyle.
Who is Arryana?
Arryana graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University. As she grew into her femininity journey, she was selected to participate in the USA National Miss Arizona pageant in the Miss Division. As a young woman, Arryana embodies femininity, confidence, and wisdom. She uses these qualities to highlight the joy of being a feminine woman on her social media and Luxe Girl Diaries.
We wanted to learn more about how she cares for herself during this pandemic. “Taking care of myself during COVID has been a challenge. It’s been a little hard to keep a continent routine especially when the days flow together. I like to start off my day with a little journaling and meditation. How you start off your morning is so crucial,” said Tate.
Morning routines are something we can agree on. 14% of the people that live in the United States meditate according to the CDC. Even something as simple as doing your skincare routine can have an effect on how you view yourself during the day. These self-growth tips are some of the ways that the Luxe Girl Diaries helps women like Arryana on their feminine journey.
What does The Luxe Girl Diaries mean to you?
Luxe Girl Diaries has grown from how many women are turning to self-reflection. Women from young to old are becoming interested in diving into their femininity and improving themselves in their daily lives. As for Arryana, this is a huge part of her growth as a person.
“It initially started out as a way to share my journey, and give tips & advice. I wanted to turn it into a community. A sisterhood of women who want to better themselves, help and nourish each other. They want to be the alchemist of their own life. It is important to me because it took me a while to realize that I am a woman who is of high value. I want to be confident. I want to give myself the best life possible,” says Tate.
The importance of building a tribe is important to her. “It helps you feel better about your journey and less alone.” This tribe of women helps anyone on the path of becoming more feminine.
What does femininity mean to you?
On her journey to femininity, femininity for Arryana helps her feel balanced as a woman.
But, it also comes with its challenges. “It’s very hard to be feminine [today]. People don’t make it easy. It’s a very warm and engulfing feeling to experience. Be open and not closed off to people. I was not able to be vulnerable at first but there is so much power in it. To me, femininity allows you to be vulnerable. But, also being able to switch between your masculine and feminine energy.”
As an every growing woman, she says don’t be so hard on yourself. Life every day is a challenge to do better. “For the younger girls, try to be the best you can be. Know your worth and know that you are the best.”
As part of our Take Care Series, we have recently interviewed powerful women living intentionally every day. Each of these women has taken their time to change their old ways from business to personal. From hair influencers to editors, they challenge themselves to show the good and the bad to their audiences.
