My name is Kayla Jacobs and I’m a reader, writer, beader and magic-tale weaver. Or at least I hope to be. I’ve previously written for VogueTatlerGlamour, Refinery29, Conde Nast Traveller, The New York Times, VF Agenda and Live The Process among others. I am currently Beauty & Style Editor at mindbodygreen.com and am co-writing (as yet untitled) a book on ritual for Penguin Random House. I’m also on a Foundations of Aromatherapy Certification Training Program at the New York Institute of Aromatherapy.

Kayla’s Thread is a cross-pollination, curation and exploration of beauty, psychology, sexuality, wellness, culture, and spirituality. My process has been organic and full of discovery. I once heard someone say, ‘Love the seed. Love yourself for the planting. Love the moment of beginning, now, the journey of your growth.’ This thread is just as much for me as it is for you.
