About the Blogger

I’m Ally Champagne Stone, a 20 year old Art student at UCSB and a fitness and lifestyle model. I love to lift, run, do hot yoga, create art, and write. I have a Brussels Griffon pup named Lilo who makes me smile every day.

I grew up in New Jersey but have been living away from home since I was 15. These past years of independence have been a learning period for me to figure out who I am, who I want to be, and what I stand for. I hope to be a figure for anyone to look to and know that you can face your darkness and come out of it. I hope to be a source of inspiration for confidence no matter what any industry says about beauty. To me, being a healthy role model is more than being thin and posting on social media. To me, it's recognizing where I came from, why I'm here, and continuing to be exactly who I am. 

 I write about my experiences, my mistakes, my successes, and my losses and make them into lessons for myself and advice for those in the same places I have been in.

Talk to me. Tell me your stories while I share bits and pieces of mine. With love, Ally.
