Meet Ryley

Ryley, Meet The Author of Thistle Beauty The Blog

I am a wife to my soul mate / husband of 10+ years who I  have 3 very energetic and imaginative kids with. 
 Natural beauty is my passion. I graduated from a highly recognized cosmetology school out of Atlanta back in January of 2016. Quickly did I realize how toxic the chemicals and products we used daily really are for our skin and hair. I have always been conscious about using organic products but it truly became a passion of mine when I went through beauty school and then had my daughter (and last baby) the following year. I want her to be able to play with my makeup bag and for me not to be worried about what she is putting on her skin. To grow up being conscious about the fact the your skin is your body's largest organ and what it absorbs is very important! So in 2016, I started a skincare and beauty line (Thistle Organic Beauty) making products that were cruelty free + vegan, handmade in small batches here in the USA using natural ingredients. 
Being a work at home mom was super hard and I recently made the decision to take a break from selling and just start sharing my secerets through this blog. I hope you enjoy!
