FAQ / Disclosure

I strive to be transparent as possible with my readers so if you have any questions regarding anything about my disclosure, please contact me. Thank you and please enjoy your stay!

How did the name ‘She Sweats Diamonds’ come about?

I’ll be honest. I’ve always hated the phrase, “Don’t ever let anyone dull your sparkle.” It’s too girlie for women like me who are a bit more bolder and headstrong in personality. Don’t get me wrong, I like girly things and being girly whenevever I feel like it, but that phrase…oy.

The idea actually began with “I don’t sweat, I sparkle.” and again, the ‘sparkle’ was a little too girly. I understood the concept, but wanted something that represented the bolder, fearless, lion-type me and other women like me.

When I thought of the blog name, I wanted something that represented heart, hustle and hard work. She Sweats Diamonds came from the fact that I didn’t want to sparkle (I see it as seeking attention for myself), but rather work hard to be a diamond and in turn, reflect my light onto others.

The SSD name represents sweating diamonds when it comes to working hard on anything from taking care of your body to building and growing a blog or business. At the beginning stages, diamonds aren’t pretty. Carbon has to constantly endure pressure from heat to be the beautiful diamonds they are in the end.

That’s what life all about. Knowing that there are ups and downs to life, but not succumbing to the pressures that we face. Instead, face it head on, work hard through our struggles and sweat diamonds from it!
