Introducing, conscious living incarnate. After becoming vegan and transforming her life, Keri Bainborough became passionate about leading women to the beauty of self love through her guides, podcast and, most recently, moon journals.

NAME: Keri Bainborough
DAY JOB: Mother & Writer
WHAT’S THE CLOSEST THING TO REAL MAGIC?
DESCRIBE YOUR GIRLBOSS MOMENT
Sending out my first ever invoice… and having it get paid!
Seeing my name in print in an American magazine.
HOW DID YOU LEARN WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A WOMAN?
Honestly…? By falling pregnant, growing life inside of me and giving birth on my terms and by myself without any intervention
WHO TAUGHT YOU WHAT LOVE IS?
I am still learning… but my husband and my daughter change the landscape of love for me daily.
WHAT IS INTIMACY?
Giving birth at home with only three other people in the house.
Being vulnerable about your truth to someone you love.
WHAT DID YOUR MOTHER TEACH YOU?
To stand up for myself and to be kind and gentle to animals.
To stand up to injustice and to work hard…
and keep a clean house!
TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR BODY THAT YOU WISH YOU’D ALWAYS KNOWN?
That it knows exactly what it’s doing and I should just trust that… Control leads to unhappiness. Let it be…
The pill is whack!
ULTIMATE MAKE-OUT PLAYLIST?
The entire Bastille Bad Blood album. We listened to it on repeat on honeymoon and there was a lot of making out!
WHO SHOULD EVERYONE BE FOLLOWING RIGHT NOW?
Whoever they want… people they love in real life, people who aren’t afraid to share their truth, people who are promoting love and whose pasts make you feel inspired.
