Welcome to An Ideal Life

Hi! I’m Juliette. Welcome to AIL—a lifestyle brand where your wildest dreams meet reality. Whether you’re tackling student loans, managing a chronic condition, or simply looking for a bit of inspiration, you’ve found your community.

As a neurodivergent disabled millennial myself, I share the raw unfiltered snippets of my quest for a joyful, fulfilling life. Here, it’s about romanticizing the little things as we work towards new milestones and dreams.

At AIL, I share my journey of creating my ideal life while inspiring yours. Whether it’s actually remembering to fill my pill organizer or cooking my favorite dishes, each post on the blog or across the AIL community is designed to help you craft your own AIL, whatever the obstacles.

About Juliette

When I’m not exploring a cozy, happy lifestyle on the blog, you can find me living my own ideal life—or at least working towards it. I’m a proud fur mom and a constant learner, forever juggling the ups and downs of disabled life with a cup of coffee in hand.

A Little About Me

  • I live with a variety of chronic conditions, only some of which we’ve identified so far—including fibromyalgia, chronic migraine, and dysautonomia. I’m also AuDHD and deal with PTSD and PMDD.
  • I’m mommy to Fitz, my incredible emotional support cat (and the subject of my third book, How My Cat Saved My Life and Other Poems). Whenever I’m working on something for the blog, he’s likely curled up right next to me!
  • I love cozy games—Stardew Valley is my absolute favorite! I haven’t managed a single play-through where I don’t end up married to Shane or Leah.
  • I’ve been vegan for a decade, and being as cruelty-free as possible is a key part of my own ideal life. I share plenty of snapshots on Instagram and some of my favorite recipes here on the blog!
  • I’ve been working with magick to some degree since I was just a kid. I’m almost always wearing a crystal and will definitely stop to look at the moon whenever I get the chance.
  • I’m a former theatre kid and absolutely a musical nerd to this day. There’s always a risk I’ll break into show tunes…or a Taylor Swift song.
  • I love writing both here on the blog and beyond—I actually have seven books of poetry out in the world so far!
  • I spend a ridiculous amount of time in the Goodnotes app, usually working on my Passion Planner or bullet journal spreads. I even have a coupon code for new members of the #PashFam below!

Creating an ideal life isn’t about being perfect—it’s about find joy in the everyday, learning to navigate life’s unpredictabilities, and knowing you can always strive for the best version of you.
