BOOK NERD : Kickass Quotes From Succulent Wild Woman by SARK

SARK, Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy, is as colorful, bold & outrageously nonconformist as her self-appointed name might suggest.

She is the first woman I ever heard talking about the "wild woman", and she has irrefutably inspired the look & feel of so many popular blogs, books & brands, including those of Leonie Dawson, Gala Darling... and all of the women who have been inspired by those women.

Her infectious, joyful spirit has had a kind of trickle down effect that has played a significant part in shaping the way we modern women express ourselves & bond together.

If you are new to her work, Succulent Wild Woman is a dazzling place to begin.

Her style may be whimsical and child-like, but it is certainly not frivolous.

SARK has the ability to dig deep into the darkness & pain of what it is to be a woman, especially a wounded woman, without sacrificing one ounce of humor, and she shares her own raw edges in a way that gives you permission to explore your own.

It's not so much that she's got all the answers but that she's willing to ask provocative questions, as much of herself as of you, and she invites you to explore explore explore in myriad ways...

Take her up on her offer! Go wild. Get juicy. And start coloring outside the lines of life...
