Julia Coney was born in the small town of Leesville, Louisiana, and raised in Houston, Texas. After studying French in Paris in 2001, Julia came home a transformed American. Not only did she embrace the French aesthetic of amazing skincare it truly changed the way she sees beauty. She was always into cosmetics, but now the focus is on amazing cosmetics as well as amazing skin. Her philosophy is “all women want to feel beautiful. Flawless skin is the key to flawless makeup. You have one face, let’s cherish it.”
In March 2005, Julia moved to DC to experience life on the east coast and for a change of scenery. In January of this year, Julia lost her oldest brother. To deal with the sadness and grief following his death her doctor recommended yoga. Although she had taken a few classes before she in her words “wasn’t that impressed.” So, she took her doctor’s advice and begin to search for yoga on her podcasts in iTunes in February. She was immediately drawn to the logo for “Hip Tranquil Chick” and decided to listen. She listened to all the podcasts in one weekend, read the entire blog archives, and came to her first class at Tranquil Space. After the first class she was hooked. Tranquil Space felt like home.
She started her blog All About the Pretty because she loves all types of beauty products and wanted to inform women of all races in matters of skincare, makeup and other products. She has a Bachelors of Arts in English Literature with a minor in French and Psychology from the University of Houston. Julia lives in downtown DC, is an intellectual property paralegal and studio assistant at Tranquil Space. She is a Francophile, an traveler, a foodie, wine lover, a yogi, and a voracious reader. All the things she considers tranquil and pretty.
