the vision

self·ISH...More than just a word. 


Our Why

We live in a society that focuses more on gaining success than inner peace. self·ISH was created to encourage women to make a shift and put self love first. Self love is not self·ISH. It is being Intentional, Spiritual, and Happy. (self·ISH) We have created a space for just that!

Our Mission

Our mission is to encourage women to focus on self care and know that it is #Okaytobeselfish.

We do this by providing resources and a safe space where like-minded women can grow, share, and connect, while being held accountable to practice self love and self care consistently.

We believe all women can experience happiness and inner peace when she creates a holistic self care practice.



the opportunity



A shift is happening in the world & you can’t deny it.

Everyone is realizing their connection to the Divine source & they are not afraid to do the work for deeper understanding & connection with self.

We have curated a self care community for women because self care and mental health are often ignored and have become secondary to life's responsibilities. You can only truly win when you’re right within. It’s an amazing thing when passion & purpose align.

The journey starts now, make the shift with us!
