Falisha’s Story

Originally I was known as ‘Organic Wino’ but now you can call me Falisha K. Patel. I wanted to make it more personal since I’ve noticed my followers prefer that, so here it goes! I got married in 2016 to my High school sweetheart (his name is Heral) in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We have a home in Southern California and have a little fur baby named Meeko, who is now 13 years old! (I can’t believe it!) 
I’m a hairstylist that specializes in balayage and work in Mission Viejo; sometimes after a long shift at work i will go home and pour a glass of my favorite wine, (Cabernet of course!). 

I’ve traveled to: The Dominican Republic, Canada, Costa Rica, The Caribbean, and more! 

I try (key work TRY lol) to live a clean, organic, and healthy life. From concocting cleaning products for the household, using essential oils for various tasks, and growing my own herb garden (it’s died a few times..haha).

Often my friends and family ask me to send my favorite vacation destinations, restaurant recommendations, Recipes, and more, so I decided to create this space where I share all of my favorites.

Hope you Enjoy!

Like other businesses that have suffered, I’ve closed my Salon doors as well. I’m currently doing house calls for friends and family ONLY, and going to ride out this storm. Are house calls for everyone? Of course not, and I know I upset many of my clients during this process, but I had to do what was best for me. I think everyone has to do what is best for them, and I’m actually not upset about this change for me personally.

I’m one of those people that have been known to be a WORKAHOLIC, people pleaser, and thought my SELF WORTH was bringing in six figures.. boy was I WRONG! I worked long hours and never focused enough time on ME. What is the point of working long hours only to be exhausted and not really enjoy life. Is this really LIVING and even good for your HEALTH? I would push through the week and look forward to the weekend which was always jam packed of things to do. I never really slowed down to just breathe and take in 15 mins of doing nothing. This pandemic knocked me and my business on my ass, but I got back up again STRONGER than ever. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE doing hair, and won’t ever completely stop doing it, but that’s the benefit of my industry, you can work as much or as little as you like. Work SMARTER, NOT harder, am I right?

I think if there’s anything that this pandemic has taught me: TAKE IT DAY BY DAY. Will I ever open my doors again? Who knows🤷🏽‍♀️ I’m open to all the possibilities!

I’ve ditched my toxic lifestyle and I’ve taken control of my overall well-being.🙏I’m enjoying my lower load of clients, and focusing on me, eating healthy, working out, and practicing self love.❤️

QUESTION: Can YOU relate? I’m curious to know what or if anything has changed for you/your business due to the pandemic?
