Well hello, everyone!
To be honest, I have been dreaming of the launch of this blog for years now. It’s exciting that it’s finally coming to fruition.
10 years ago, I made a decision that would completely change my life.
My story begins 10 years ago when I made a decision that would change my life. Living in I felt that it was time
to alter my appearance, go big as they say in Hollywood. Oh, and I went big alright. Thinking it was going
to improve my self-esteem with breast implants. I am sure many of you can relate to the first time you
thought about getting breast implants. What was going through your mind… Look at that actress/ model
in the latest magazine, how about Becky at barre class, people we looked up to, our piers, and what
society thought at the time of women who expressed themselves through a body transformation. I
remember all of it, I was having a conversation with my then-boyfriend about the idea of getting breast
implants and I will tell you there was not much in the way of hesitation from him. After thinking about it a
while I went ahead and found a doctor that 4 or 5 of my friends had gone to. He walked me through the
process just as any doctor would sliding by the health risks right into shape and size. I was self-conscious
of breasts and knew I wanted a lift as well and wanted to go as minimal as possible. And I thought I
really had. Shortly thereafter I get capsular contracture, then I lost my crease all within a 2-year period
of time. Not realizing that my body was telling me NO very loudly, and I was not listening. My surgeon
told me sometimes this happens but to have both happen is one in a million, “You just have thin
skin he told me”. After my 3rd surgery, I could finally start to live my life, at the time I didn’t recognize it
but I was in for a rude awakening. I am slowly started to lose my hair, my nails were not going, I started
to develop what I thought and was told fibromyalgia. There are too many symptoms to list, but I had at
least 30 or so. It was slow-progressing and I had no idea it was about to become my new normal. Now
looking back on being much healthier I know that that was not normal in any way.
Once I discovered from a friend that there was some called BII out there, she immediately calls me and
sent me the article. She said “Jenn, this is you in every way. All the symptoms you have been telling me
about for the last few years you have them. You need to look at this article. It floored me and scared me
all at the same time. It took me a year to understand and to find the right doctor going back to 2018.
Then I got a wake-up call from another friend, Amanda who told me the same things. This is you Jenn,
everything we both have been dealing with. So I had a few consults picked a doctor and did my surgery
in October 2019. That day changed my life again… This time for the better. Since my surgery, I have been
dedicated to helping other women come clean with their health and their beauty. Find out all of the
chemicals that are in our beauty products, food, and daily items we use scared me into a mission to help
clean up. Seeing the remarkable change in my mind, body, and mood since my surgery has meant
everything to me and I want to help others along the way.
Amanda and I have created a tribe of beautiful women willing to help other Breastie come clean, get
healthy, and focus on moving forward to a more beautiful life.

non-toxic products and clean food. And from that sprang Clean Beauty Babe and I ran with it! It is important to me especially after a health scare due to toxic breast implants, it has been a passion of mine to search out amazing products I can wear without harming myself or others. It is hard to try and try so many products searching for the right ones that
really work. That is what I have done and are still doing as we are evolving as a world and coming
together as a community making others aware of alternatives that are out there, it becomes easier. I am
