Slow, tender mornings and simplifying skincare with Michele Price

Slow, tender mornings and simplifying skincare with Michele Price

Michele Price is a creative based in Baltimore. We spoke with her about acts of love, savoring nature on vacation and traveling to celebrate a new decade of life. 

Window, Middle or Aisle? I prefer the window seat, especially on a short flight. It allows me the opportunity to gaze upon the clouds and practice gratitude for the blessing to travel. Windborne, I get to see the world from a bird’s eye view.

Where’s the last place you traveled? I took a trip to Puerto Rico with a few of my girlfriends, to kick off my 30th birthday festivities. It was a trip filled with laughter, introspection, releasing control, and facing the unknown.

What does travel mean to you? For me travel means many things. Travel is freedom, the opportunity to explore desires and challenge my fears. Whether that is trying new cuisine with friends or checking an adrenaline packed activity off my bucket list, I end every travel experience with a moment of reflection, sitting with the life lesson and affirming myself.

What’s your idea of a perfect vacation? The perfect vacation starts with a cup of coffee, native to the destination of choice. Followed by a quick bite at a cute restaurant. Stumbling upon an art gallery or clothing boutique, to pick up adornments.

What do you most value in your friendships? I value honest communication, compassion, and reciprocity.

What (or Who) currently inspires you? I am inspired by love, and the act of choosing love. Love shows up in what I do for myself and others. Love forgives faults and imperfections. Over the pass 30 years of my life, the knowledge I have gained on love is tethered to remaining open, and constantly choosing to let the light of love in. I am inspired by my family. I cherish the time I spend with them; it keeps me grounded and the history of my family inspires me daily, it motivates me to keep going.

What is your self-care routine when traveling? I like to awake early and step outside, with a cup of water, letting the fresh air into my lungs. I take a moment to pray and feel overcome by immense gratitude for the ability to travel and see the world. I make a cup of coffee and journal, releasing my morning thoughts. If I am with friends, I will check with them, and prepare for the day ahead.

The holy grail of your beauty routine? Black Girl Sunscreen and tretinoin cream, honestly, these two products changed my skin forever.

What are you manifesting in your life right now? Right now, I am manifesting rest and relaxation, a lot of nature walks, and slow, tender mornings. I feel like I have been in “go mode” for so long, I had forgotten what it felt like to not have to schedule time to relax.
