THE FACE BEHIND THE BLOG

Hi! I'm Marlee and started Sweet Health Nut back in 2011 when I began my journey toward a natural lifestyle.

I'm the web editor of an interior design and architecture magazine by day, and a health and wellness enthusiast at all times (blogger on evenings and weekends!)

I'm a health-conscious vegetarian, vegan flirt, skincare sampler, beauty junkie, acne fighter, yoga enthusiast, feminist and hopeless giggler who strives to enjoy every last drop life's sweetness.

{video} :: how food doc “hungry for change” will change your life

I just posted a new YouTube video inspired by the food documentary “Hungry for Change” because it had a massive impact on me. The doc is obviously about food and health, but the final message at the end of the documentary really struck a chord with me and connects EVERYTHING together. Seriously. It connects food,...
Quarter Life Crisis?

Quarter Life Crisis?

I quit my job last week. The short of it is that I’ve been struggling with lots of ups and downs (depression? Maybe. I’m not a fan of labels). I couldn’t get out of bed. I wasn’t doing my job (I worked from home on contract so I get paid if I complete the job,...
Salma Hayek Confesses: "I suffered from acne and depression"

Salma Hayek Confesses: “I suffered from acne and depression”

I think this is the first time I have ever seen an A-list celebrity (or any celebrity, for that matter) speak at any length about their emotional struggles with acne (though, as I mention below, I still wanted more). Sure, we’ve heard tid bits from Cameron Diaz and Kiera Knightly, but this is definitely the...
The Perfect Therapist

The Perfect Therapist

  I don’t have too much experience with therapy. I saw a therapist last year to help deal with the phobia I had as far back as I can remember (emetophobia, look it up. You may be surprised, it’s kind of different). It helped and she was nice, but that’s about it. I saw her...

Comparing Yourself to Others – Try Complimenting!

I just read this story on Kris Carr’s website called What a Supermodel Taught Me About Comparing Myself to Others. This is something I struggle with on a daily basis. I always find reasons why I’m not good enough. Today I feel great. The sun is shining brightly. I don’t have work, but I got...

Emotions and Acne: Part 3

I told my mom how I was feeling and that was the beginning of my healing process. Tracy from The Love Vitamin had a huge influence on my realization that when you have acne, it’s important to make sure you take care of your emotions. Not only because having acne can cause you to get depressed, but because...

Acne and Emotions: Part 2

What came first, the depression or the acne? I think it’s more complex than one simple answer. I know that I have a history of self-esteem issues, and when my skin was clear last year, those didn’t disappear. Sure, I felt much prettier and better about my appearance, but self-esteem runs deeper than just regarding...

Emotions and Acne: Part 1

I’ve been dealing with some personal “stuff” lately… and I say the oh-so-vague word “stuff” because I’m only just starting to figure out exactly what it is I’m dealing with. Let’s backtrack a few months. I started breaking out this summer after going off the birth control pill (part of my transition to go au...
