In the first installment of our Body of Work series, Claire interviews Riley Blanks. Riley Blanks is a multimedia storyteller, socially conscious artist, and the creator of Woke Beauty—a photography movement and self-actualization tool that celebrates the inherent resilience of women everywhere.
Although Riley has lived in fifteen cities and six countries throughout her lifetime, she is now based in Austin, Texas. She currently spends her time running Woke Beauty, working with brands she believes in and shooting Manifest—a photography series exploring her biracial identity and its relation to earthly elements, as a reflection of what it takes to undo injustices toward women of color in America (read Riley's full bio).
Program note: Hey, glad you’re enjoying the podcast! In this episode, you might hear Claire talking about Nutritional Freedom and Foundations. Since we launched the podcast in 2020, we've undergone a makeover to improve the membership experience. For more, listen to our "And we're back! All the updates!" episode.
Keep up with all things Flourish:
Claire Siegel: You're listening to the Flourish podcast. I'm your host Claire Siegel, founder of Flourish. We're on a mission to help women get healthy for good. Join me each week for a new episode that'll help you sustain healthy habits and nourish your body so you can Flourish in life.
Today's episode of the Flourish podcast is brought to you by the Flourish membership... Pretty meta, right?
Ok, but in all seriousness, if you're a fan of the podcast, then your exactly who we built this membership for and you're probably ready to start making some major moves. Flourish is the place where women make peace with food, better their body image, and get healthy for good.
Inside the Flourish membership, you'll get unlimited access to credentialed nutrition and mindset coaches, you'll get community support from women who are on the same page as you, and you're also going to get an evidence-based curriculum to help you cut through the clutter and guide your daily actions.
Now, we're still invite-only, but I'm giving friends of the podcast early access.
