Who is Buzzworthy?
To raise spirits and awareness, the fashion-forward blogger/influencer stars of the digital series The Fash Life along with the support of the Depression Bi-Polar Support Alliance: DBSA are launching the #FashLifeAtHomeChallenge on May 1st kicking off Mental Health Awareness Month.
What is the purpose of the #FashLifeAtHomeChallenge?
Mental and emotional wellbeing are vital during this pandemic lockdown, but often go overlooked. The goal is to raise spirits during a time that is very isolating by bringing more fashion, beauty, wellness, creativity, joy and laughter into the world of social media.
The Fash Life series co-creator/star and prominent blogger Lisa Valerie Morgan adds, “As someone who has suffered from depression and anxiety throughout my life, I’ve found that taking care of myself through wellness and beauty routines, as well as getting dressed up, have always helped to improve my mood. I’ve been enthusiastic about sharing some of these tips on my Pretty Little Shoppers blog and The Fash Life show. Now more than ever, taking care of yourself has become so important to staying mentally and physically healthy!”
Who is participating in the #FashLifeAtHomeChallenge?
Lisa has recruited some of her blogger/influencer co-stars and supporters, including Elizabeth Keene, Kali Passiglia, Daphne Blunt, Sheree Ho, Elaine Chaya, Linda Kang, Matt Sarafa, Stuart Brazell, Rachel Kennedy, Ashley Dulaney, Catherine Grace O’Connell, Debbie Savage, Hayley Gripp, Alisha Taneja and Rachel Pitzel.
And, now they’re challenging all of their fans and social media followers to participate.

Why is mental health an important issue right now?
We are social creatures, so staying home and away from one another for prolonged periods of time is not always so easy. People need to get out of their pajamas, take a shower and practice good self-care during this time of quarantine and beyond.
“All of us need to pay attention to what our feelings are telling us right now,” says Betsey O’Brien, communications director for the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance: DBSA. “Risks for depression and other mental health issues are higher when we don’t sleep well, get enough exercise and feel stressed out. Learn the signs of depression and don’t be afraid to get the help you need.”
