Lee-Loy “a mindful life and style” is a soulful space created to inspire a positive and mindful way of living. Our journey began as a blog sharing stories as we traveled the world together. Being exposed to so many amazing adventures over the years has opened us up to the world around us and has fueled our passion for living a happy and meaningful life.
Meet Leona aka Lee
This blog began as a personal diary with my best friend journaling our experiences of life on the road. I’m a music artist and I’ve toured the world for almost 10 years and counting. There have been hard demands on my mind and body at times and this leads me on a journey to becoming more mindful. One of my reasons for evolving this blog into a positive lifestyle space is because I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease which had become debilitating to live with. My symptoms left me physically and emotionally drained to the point that I would struggle to get out of bed. I was prescribed lots of different medication but the side effects of some of these drugs left me dizzy and drowsy, which as a performer, was impossible to function with. I decided to change my lifestyle and get on the road to recovery. My mum always told me “Your health is your wealth” and I now realize how true this is. Lee-Loy is a place where I document my personal discoveries on living a more healthy and blissful life.
Meet Maloy aka Loy
I like to call myself a business mother, which means I’m currently trying to run my own business and be a mummy at the same time. All while ensuring I never stay in my pajamas past 9 am, stay sane enough to appear attractive and maintain social dates and conversations without talking too much about babies. Before working with Leona, I was the MD of a Savile Row tailoring company for five years. Working in a male dominated environment I often faced misogynist characters, for a girl in her early twenties, I had huge responsibilities with around thirty staff members and worldwide locations. I worked so hard to get and stay in my position, which had taxing effects on my body and mind. Working with Lee was a chance to reset and travel the world and be with my best friend, hello! But this high demanding fast pace environment meant we both often struggled to maintain a healthy work-life balance. The epiphany moment for me was when I became a mother and when my baby girl was around six months old, I suffered from postnatal depression. I realized that I had a responsibility to get healthy for her and for myself. I decided then and there to focus on being a master of my mind and be free of limiting negative beliefs that I subconsciously held. So now I’m a self-help junkie, wannabe vegan and advocate of all things natural. I never get embarrassed when I really should, and I live to live in the moment. Someone wise told me that there are two thieves in your life, one is your past and the other is your future. They both steal your presence in this moment in the here and now.
