Inspiring Women to Embrace Their Beauty & be Kind to Themselves

WELCOME -

I truly believe beauty can be found in every aspect of our lives, from exploring new cultures around the world to creating effortless, comfortable spaces in our home. I also know that we cultivate beauty in ourselves when we care for our bodies - honoring their natural beauty even as we age, fueling them with plant-based meals, and caring for them with clean beauty products. If you want to find beauty in the world and within yourself, you’re in the right place.

The Tennille Life is all about seeking and cultivating natural, effortless beauty.

For so many years, I was the expert at taking care of everyone around me - but I forgot to put myself first. After walking through a divorce, I knew it was time to learn how to love myself again, from embracing my natural hair to rebuilding my natural confidence. As I designed a life that felt sustainable, joyful, and beautiful, everything changed for me. I knew I had to share my story. In 2013, I launched a blog to house my many passions - wellness, nutrition, design, travel, and fashion. It’s been a joy to watch The Tennille Life grow, because I’ve connected with so many incredible women along the way. I love watching my own growth, but I adore watching yours, too, lovies! This is a beautiful journey, and we’re just getting started.

If you’ve purchased skincare lately, chances are you’ve seen brands touting products that “fight free radicals”. It sounds great, but what does that even mean? WTF are free radicals?  What are free radicals?  To answer that question, I’m about to go a bit science nerd on you (LOL) so bare with me. Our bodies are […]

Guest Blog x Xia  Are you a “go by the recipe” kind of person or do you like to wing it when you cook? I’m definitely the latter which is why it’s so hard to share recipes. Y’all have been hitting my mom up for the orzo pasta salad recipe I made a few weeks […]
