Welcome to the SOCIAL Life

    Welcome to The SOCIAL Life, a monthly lifestyle blog for all things healthy, happy, and beautiful! My name is Leah, CEO of SOCIAL Enjoyments.

    When I launched SOCIAL in 2014, I began going to tons of events across Chicago and meeting hundreds of amazing powerful women who had so many incredible things to share.

    So, I decided to bring some of these brilliant babes together to provide their approach on all aspects of living a healthy, fulfilled life. From love advice to nutrition and fitness, we’re happy to bring the musings of these experts to you once a month.

    Our writers are deeply passionate about their chosen topic and love sharing their knowledge with others.  Something I love (and what you will love) about them!

    The mission of The Social Life is women sharing with other women so that together we can all enjoy life more! Living healthy, having fun, and making the world a better place to be.  So come along, and live and learn with The Social Babes!
