1.4 // French Beauty Lessons from a Country Star

Sarah Darling is a Top 40 Country Artist, owns a French macaron patisserie, & has an ethereal, feminine presence that has intrigued me since we met. We talk about what “star quality” means, how French beauty is different, & if we have evolved to be attracted to certain traits to survive? She shares about being true to yourself amidst all the voices telling you what to do & reprogramming our minds about wrinkles & plastic surgery. This episode is PACKED with gold & I’m so glad you’re joining us!
