Welcome to the Self Care Club babes!
A community that roots for progress over perfection, prioritizes self love, and celebrates every little success you’ve achieved. Self care is all about confidently putting YOU first, without hesitation or guilt. It’s about learning how to nurture yourself, so that you can show up for others and give what's best of you, not what’s left of you. Self care looks different for everyone and we are so happy to have celebrated that at the Self Care Summit. Whether for you it means chilling out with your favorite CBD product, giving yourself time let go through journaling, a classic face mask minute, or even picking up a new hobby like ukulele, we are so happy that women are starting to shamelessly take care of themselves more and more.
Behind the Design
For the inaugural Self Care Summit, Dazey teamed up with boss babe Jaclyn Johnson of Create & Cultivate, and her incredible team to bring you an exclusive, limited edition design that embodies the community we want to create--- the Self Care Club. This design combines the boldness of mechanic's logo and the natural softness of pastels and cursive, so that you can feel both when you wear it. It was printed in puff ink on exclusive and limited edition pastel pink coveralls that are made of a sleek stretch fabric, which give these pieces the perfect feminine edge. We want our babes to harness both their strong and feminine traits confidently in these coveralls, because who says you have to be one or the other to be a badass boss?! GIRL, you can be BOTH! We want this design to remind you that YES you're a boss lady who gets sh*t done AND you're also one who takes the time to give back to herself with some bonafide self care.
Dazey outfitted the entire C&C crew with this design through limited edition Self Care coveralls and classic Dazey tees (which truthfully weren't part of the plan but ended up being a hit!). Every babe looked SO GOOD in them, we are so thrilled to release this NEW Dazey design to the rest of our community! For a *very* limited time, you can join the club and sport the saying too! The Self Care Club coveralls, Dazey tee, and pin are now available on the site!
Another huge part of this wonderful collab was creating our first ever hand-painted mural of a Dazey design to welcome attendees to the Zen Den & marketplace floor. This mural is where this entire project started, back when Dani and Kelsea dreamed it up during an afternoon coffee date months ago. The idea to combine a Dazey saying, paint, and florals, nonetheless EPIC florals from the bouquet babe herself, was a dream we couldn't pass up. From concept to creation, this entire project and summit was an honor to be a part of and exactly what we needed to push through the heaviest of retrogrades and find self care again.

Of course, we left this summit with so many gems brought to us by real life self care queens. They created conversations around not only the importance of self care, but also how to move into confidence, empower yourself through social media, and practice self love daily. Read on for some key takeaways from the jam-packed day. *Quotes brought by Create & Cultivate*
If you don't follow Tess already, please do your self a favor and do it! This babe is a trailblazer of body diversity and positivity, paving the way of what a true confident queen looks like. She started the #effyourbeautystandards movement and created a space for others to own and harness their beauty in every shape and form. Some quotes from the conference:
On learning to love herself...
“I can take up as much space I want—I shouldn’t be ashamed.”
On the power of social media...
“I think social media can be a really powerful tool. People can create this space and show the representation that wasn't there before.”
“People think that they know you based on social media. They might know bits of you. We don’t have it figured out. We’re just doing our best.”
“You can chase your dreams and do whatever you want to do and you're not limited just because you haven't seen anyone else doing what you want to do.”
“And that’s what saves lives—feeling less alone.”
We discovered Koya in front of our mural and were immediately struck by her positive energy & the light she brought to the space. It was all dance parties and laughter the entire time she was there! If you don't know Koya yet, she is a wellness guru specializing in yoga, meditation, and holistic health. She recently released her new book “Let Your Fears Make You Fierce” which is an inspiring guide about dismantling your doubts and coming into your full potential. Basically the ultimate guide to confidence and self love that anyone can benefit from! Here are some takeaways from her panel at the summit:
On the power of embracing fear...
“Face everything and rise.”
On reprioritizing self-care...
“We forget that the most important person to nurture is ourselves.”
“If we nurture ourselves first and foremost, we will have the most energy to nurture others.”
And last but not least, a takeaway from yours truly. After a longwinded retrograde, this summit could not have come at a better time. Self care is something I teach but don’t always make time to practice. Being surrounded by so many other entrepreneurial, creative, business women at that summit showed me how dedicated we can be to work or others, but not ourselves. It's time we take back our power by taking time for self care. Thank you to all the people who made this collab possible!
