    Tell us a little bit about yourself!

    Hey, I’m Julianne! I’m a freelance writer, content strategist, and app producer living on Maui with my husband and our orange kitty, Buddy. I spend my days writing content for companies that I believe in, planning beach picnics with friends, and scoping out the next fun thing to do on Maui. After work, you can find me taking a dip in the ocean or on a long walk with a podcast.


    What is your favorite GOLDE product and how do you use it? 

    Ooh, do I have to pick a favorite? It’s close, but I think the Papaya Bright Face Mask is my favorite Golde product. I use it about once every two weeks and the glow after I wash it off is unmatched. 


    What is your Golden Hour? 

    The hour after I wake up is my golden hour. Since my freelance clients are all in California, I try to keep west coast hours—which means my workday starts around 6 am here in Hawaii. I love waking up right at sunrise and making a matcha or turmeric latte and sipping on it while I shower and do my skincare. Even though I start working early, I always prioritize my slow and intentional mornings.


    Looking back at the past year, what was the biggest lesson you learned?   

    I entered a new decade of my life in 2020: my 30s. My 20s were all about city living, hustling, and putting the hours in. Now, I’m grateful that I’ve reached the stage where I can relax and enjoy living the slow life. The biggest lesson I learned this past year is that the present moment is all we have. Life is happening now, so enjoy it.

    “The eternal present is the space within which your whole life unfolds, the one factor that remains constant. Life is now. There was never a time when your life was not now, nor will there ever be.” —Eckhart Tolle
