Welcome to The Honest Peach!

“What am I doing here?”

To you I say, great question.

First off, if you’re looking for a tutorial on how to achieve the perfect smoky eye or 8 different ways to wear a head scarf, you’re in the wrong place. (Does anyone know of a good blog for that though?)

What you WILL find here are articles that can give you inspiration and advice on how to get through your day, week or life.

Or, if you’re in a “I don’t feel like bettering myself rn I just want to laugh and be entertained,” you can sit back and enjoy my rants and raves about the subtleties of life.

Who is Peach?

I’m Alyson Hempsey, therapist by trade, writer by nature, and the Peach behind the honesty. 

I’ve discovered a passion for helping others, and in doing so I’ve found that one of the key ingredients to helping people is allowing them to feel UNDERSTOOD; allowing them to feel “NORMAL” (whatever that means).

My posts are authentic (nearly to my own detriment, at times) on purpose. I’m all about dissecting life’s everyday messes and trying to make them a bit less challenging.

We all struggle. We all need help. We all need to vent. We all need to laugh.
