A Naturally Modern Life is about transforming the mundane into the magical by cultivating mindfulness.
It’s about following our intuition as a guide in this life and living mindfully in tune with nature in our modern world.
It’s about a love for our planet, ourselves, and inspiration for living sustainably and naturally.
Hey there! Feel free to get cozy and stay a while. I’m Lacey, content creator behind Naturally Modern Life.
I’m into zero-waste mommin’, plastic-free and natural living, scouring thrift stores for treasure, and saving the planet… One sippy cup at a time. A few years ago, the county that I lived in passed a law for retailers to charge consumers a 5-cent tax for every plastic bag. Little did I know that that bag tax would be the first step in my family’s zero-waste story. After the bag tax went into effect, I noticed all the unnecessary plastic that I thought was just a normal part of life. Things like produce bags, food wrappers, and even the plastic wrapped around my biodegradable “green” items didn’t make any sense. “ Who is paying the tax for those items?”, I wondered.
Us, our children, and our planet are all paying the price for plastic. When my eyes were opened to the modern, artificial, and disposable life that was all around me, I realized that the simple act of being mindful of the trash that is produced within our home has the power to change the world. That’s when I decided to write a new definition for modern living. One that was sustainable, friendlier to the planet and ourselves.
A life that was naturally modern
What is zero-waste?
Well simply put, it’s about trying our best not to create unnecessary trash or food waste. The movement has been popularized by Bea Johnson and her book, Zero-Waste Home.
In it, she outlines the 5 R’s of zero-waste:
* Refuse: Unnecessary stuff
* Reduce: Your consumption
* Reuse: And repurpose things as long as possible
* Recycle: Everything you can
* Rot: Your biodegradable waste
Zero-waste is about making the best choice you can with the resources you have. For us, that means trying our best not to buy food in packaging, being mindful of the trash that we do produce, and actively looking for greener solutions.

A little about me
I am so blessed to be able to work from home as a blogger, content creator, and digital marketer so that I can be with my son every day. I’m married to the most amazing man who is usually easy-going about my crazy ideas. I’ll just say that saving the world is my mission and he fully supports that. Together we’re building our little tribe to live consciously with love, compassion, and laughter. We are a desert dwelling Vegas family who lives where the sun shines most days and nature is right outside our door.
Life is quite lovely.
