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 Livia Fălcaru to reflect what our motto—shine from inside—means to her.

Tell us a little bit about you.

I became an artist because I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else in the world. Drawing is the most natural thing that comes to me and it’s been present throughout my life since I was little.

How do you support your well-being throughout the day?

I make myself a matcha and laying in the sun on my balcony.

Why were you excited to partner with Rae? 

I think it’s important to take care of yourself inside and out. I really love Rae’s philosophy and I’m always excited to work with brands that share the same values as me.

What does ‘shine from inside’ mean to you?

To me, ‘shine from inside’ means finding the strength to grow and become my best self. It also means being gentle with myself and evolving as a human being. I feel shine when I am at peace with myself, and when I am able to take care of myself and my needs that my body and mind ask for.
