Yay!! The fact you're here gives me reason to believe you are curious about living a PHx'd life.
Simply put, Philosoxy is enhancing and adding to our current definitions of what "beautiful and sexy" are by valuing our internal aspects of who we are. As you read in the "About" we can not feel good enough if we are only finding our worth or being valued by ONE aspect of who we are; our bodies.
Despite our lovely and trending "self-help" movement that is happening at this moment, it will be for naught if we are still trying to fit in, and measure ourselves up to the simple and marginal expectations that we have of beauty - this is what we consciously or unconsciously try to fit into.
Philosoxy wants you to aspire to fit into a new brand of beautiful - a complete, whole brilliant kind, the kind you already are simply by the fact you were born.
Philosoxy is a movement, a revolution, an evolution of the idea of what we consider beautiful by considering the whole of who we are. The sum of all parts - that is PHx.
Philosoxy is a sexy philosophy to teach you how to navigate life with this lens, I call it the PHx Way. I encourage you to live with and through all aspects of who you are not just focusing on one.
Let's feel "good enough" together. Let's laugh, cry, reflect, contemplate, party, dance, and dissect this motha' friggin life so that we can live joyfully, peacefully, and in a balanced way. Let's begin this journey together!
You can start by downloading the free PHx Way and also find some answers to some questions. If you have more, please email me. I love you. I want nothing more than for you to be happy and to feel valued. ♥ xo A.
Frequently asked questions
What is it?
Philosoxy is a new brand of beauty. When one is tired of the marginalized definition of beauty and one realizes that no one you know actually fits into our modern-day standards of beauty no matter how much we are told to "believe in ourselves," one does what any frustrated, tired of fitting in, "my-own-kind-of-gorgeous" woman does: I created a new brand of beauty. For more on the about of it all, go to the About page.
How do you say it?
Since the word is part of the word philosophy and part of the word sexy, you say it like this:
Who am I to have started a crazy thing like this?
Who am I NOT to have started a crazy thing like this, is the better question. I am not 5'10, 108 lbs, size D boobs, wrinkle-free face, filled up lips, perfectly thick hair, mega millions in the bank, 118 million followers, and men falling at my feet. In fact, I would say I am slightly the opposite. My advantage is that I don't ache for any of those things that are "supposed" to make me happy. I am happy with what, who, where, how, and when I am. I am me. I am absolutely content and at peace with who I am because I adopted this PHx Way of life. It's beautiful because I work with what I've got instead of trying to be someone else, and there is great wonder to this. I found peace not being perfect and you can too.
Who is PHx'd?
Anyone can be. In fact, it's our natural state to be Philosoxy. We are all born with a brain, with a heart, with a soul, and with a body. Sadly though, in life we are taught to focus on and define our sense of worth based on our bodies, what you look like, what kind of car you drive, the size of your house, the job you have..etc. When in fact, if we base our self-worth on the depth of our wisdom (we all have it), the use of our brain (we all also have one), the kindness in our heart (we all ABSOLUTELY have this) and lastly our outside world, we would live a much more balanced and happy life.
Do you hate material things?
Of course I don't! This is such a funny question I was asked once. No! I absolutely do not hate material things. In fact, I love material things. I just don't let them become my reason for being. It's quite simple really, when you place your happiness on something that will inevitably end, go away or transform, your happiness will automatically disappear when that thing goes away. For example: your beauty. If all your self-worth is invested into a face without a wrinkle, what do you suppose will happen to your self-worth and happiness the day you get one? Basically, you will lose your shit. Then you will spend the rest of your days trying to relive your happiness by botoxing, filling, scraping, and masking your face.
Do you think putting time and effort into the way you look is crap?
God, I love this question! Of course not, I think it's essential. It's part of being philosoxy. Your physical body is your presentation card to the world. And let's be real, the world will always judge you on your physical self. Since we can't change the world and human behaviour, let's work on ourselves first. Your presentation card is important because it gives a synopsis to others as to what your tastes are and how you choose to present yourself to the world. A lot can be read from this (not judged but read). So, present yourself to the world how you would like to be seen.
Is this a religious site?
No it's not. I refer to the soul, wisdom, intuition, God, all-that-is, universe and life force often but never in a religious tone. I respect religions and how they can positively steer people but it's not my business to make a religious person out of you. I believe we all come equipped into this world with the gentlest, most brilliant souls that speak to us incessantly but we are not taught to listen or trust it. When we finally do listen and trust this voice, life opens up and you really begin to live a fully plugged-in, vibrant life.
I still don't get it.
Basically, you know how people always say, "love the skin you're in," or "beauty on the inside," or "be fierce" or "be empowered," have you ever wondered "how the heck do I do that?" How do you achieve peace? How do you become beautiful on the inside? How do you not care what people think or say about you?
How will this website work?
Well for starters, I won't be posting videos of myself applying various kinds of make-up. I leave that to the expert beauty bloggers and influencers.
