At Rae, we’re dedicated to helping you create a wellness routine that’s as unique as you. That’s why we bring you curated inspiration—art, music and more—to help you feel your best throughout the day. This week, we connect with artist Honey Forestier to reflect what our motto—shine from inside—means to her.

Tell us a little bit about you. 
I’ve been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, but never thought being an artist could be a thing. But I really feel connected to myself when I paint, and knew I would have missed out in life if I didn’t try as an artist. As challenging as it can be, it’s also the most rewarding gift I gave myself.

How do you support your well-being throughout the day?
I work from home, so for me it’s important to space out my work time by taking small breaks out of my apartment throughout the day, walking my dog while listening to a podcast is one of them. If I need to stay home for a longer period of time, I’ll also play some loud music to dance around a bit, stretch out and refocus.

Why were you excited to partner with Rae?
Rae’s philosophy is in tune with my own. I’m very careful about what I put in my body, so I love the fact that Rae is vegan and all natural. I believe quality ingredients can definitely improve quality of life.

What does ‘shine from inside’ mean to you? 
If I feel good inside, for example after a good workout, that’s automatically going to make me feel more like myself and therefore more in tune with others. It’s the little things you do to make you feel good inside that impact how much you can really shine outside.
