About Haley Marie




Who is Haley Marie?

I don't believe that women should have to dress like men to be taken seriously.

And you shouldn't, either! I'm Haley Marie, and I used to blog exclusively about mental illness until I realized that there was so much more to me than my anxiety. Now, I'm writing to reconcile my lifelong love of "frivolous" fashion magazines, beauty, and health articles with my career ambitions as an aspiring full-time blogger, magazine and novel writer and online health coach.

I'm currently a college freshman at Boston University, where I study Communications with minors in Political Science and Business Administration With this revamped blog, I hope to show millennial women that embracing their femininity shouldn't affect their careers; that their health and self-care always come first; and, most importantly, that they are capable of kicking serious ass in college and the workplace!

As former VP of my high school's Young Democrats and a Gold Award Girl Scout, advocacy is a huge part of who I am. I don't believe in silencing those opinions on this blog. I want to attract women who believe in speaking out about issues that are important to them, and empower women who don't think they have the inner strength to do so. Thus, Haley Marie candidly features posts about mental health, menstrual health and women's sexuality designed for millennial women to rediscover their confidence in their opinions and become advocates for their own bodies and minds. Rather than incite political crossfire, I hope that my opinions will help open important windows for discussion about the challenges facing women today!




Who is this blog for?

The college girl who's juggling a part-time job, an internship, and a double-major, but still finds the time to unwind with her monthly magazine. The millennial woman who wishes she could wear pink to her job and still feel respected by her male colleagues. The successful beauty blogger who wants to be seen for her accomplishments, not for her "frivolous" niche...in other words, any young woman who loves beauty and fashion as much as she wants to kick butt in the boardroom!

Haley Marie is also for the women who feel like they don't have a voice, but want to take care of themselves: the college girl who's still finding the strength to get help for her depression. The businesswoman who wants a promotion, but has to stay home from work every month because of endometriosis. The millennial who wants to help other women get out their votes between studying for tests and reading articles on Byrdie.

In short, there is no one type of woman who reads my blog. The ultimate goal of Haley Marie is to recognize young women as both professionals and individuals - fierce femmes and hard workers. Because I don't think that you should have to choose between femininity and success. I believe that being a woman means being strong, wearing lace, taking care of your body, dominating at work, and keeping up with therapy appointments just as well as your monthly facials. Most of all, I don't think I can tell you what it means to be a woman today. I can only hope that this blog will help you expand your own definition :)
