Healthy Lifestyle Advocate, The Goofy Mermaid
Mari Draughon lives with her husband + best friend, Josh, in sunny south Florida. The daughter of Cuban immigrant parents, she loves the ocean, sand and sun. Salt water running through her veins and a penchant for doing things her own way inspired her to create her beauty blog The Goofy Mermaid. She’s a social media consultant and co-owner of a South Florida-based pressure washing company, Eco Kleen of The Palm Beaches.
Mari grew up with two older sisters, so there was no shortage of cosmetics and beauty products in the house and she quickly learned that not all products are created equal. She soon discovered that she loved the thrill of the hunt for the perfect beauty product. Her struggle with endometriosis and PCOS, which began in her mid-twenties, lead her to an organic, pescetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy-free lifestyle. Most of all, she believes we are created in the image of God and have an inherent responsibility to choose wisely, both in what we consume and in what we put on our body. Although Mari no longer uses TheGoofyMermaid.com as a platform to talk about her life + beauty finds, she continues to share it all on Instagram and Periscope. When she is not working or talking about beauty products, she can be found enjoying skateboarding, snorkeling, paddle-boarding, kayaking, or playing hide & seek with her nieces and nephews.
