Let's get this out of the way first: You don't have to have an alcohol "problem" to have an alcohol story.

Your alcohol story is just that: A story. It's a constellation of all the tiny messages and cues you've received about alcohol throughout your life.

Somewhere along the way, you likely received the message that alcohol was a fundamental part of adult life.

At least that's how it was for us. Both of our alcohol stories began in adolescence, at a time when drinking, socializing and "coolness" are often entangled together.

For years, we drank alcohol the same way you probably do: To celebrate, to mourn, to relax, to de-stress, to reward ourselves, to socialize, to connect and to disconnect.

In some ways, our drinking choices had been similar. In some ways, they had been drastically different. But we had one thing in common: We had been drinking without thinking about it for years.

Whether through family, peers, media or just everyday life, we'd each come to believe a lot of things about alcohol—and about ourselves—that turned out to be totally untrue.

That's why we created The Observation Project, a gentle, self-paced course designed to help you observe, unpack and rewrite your own alcohol story.

Join us for 28 days in The Observation Project and we'll guide you toward understanding not only how drinking is affecting your mood, sleep and concentration, but how it might be seeping into other areas of your life as well.

We’ll dive deep into your alcohol story—what you learned from family, friends and the media—and begin to learn, together, how to rewrite it.

Here's the deal: Our goal is 
not to "convince" you to quit drinking for good. This is a shame-free space, and there are no should’s or have-to’s. There is no “wagon” to fall off of.


Instead, our goal is to gently guide you toward empowering yourself and increasing awareness about your specific needs and your own unique relationship to alcohol—in whatever ways most serve you.

There’s no getting it wrong or right here. There is only observation.

Who We Are

Hi! We're Carré Otis and Sarah Spinner, founders of the Bare Mama Project. Carré is a model, activist and the author of Beauty, Disrupted: A Memoir. Sarah is a clinical psychologist, executive coach, certified clinical hypnotherapist, and writer.

A little over a year ago, we each read the book This Naked Mind by Annie Grace. It completely transformed our lives. Annie's work inspired us to get deeply curious about alcohol and drinking: What would it be like to bring more mindfulness and awareness to our use of this substance? What could we gain or lose by doing so? Why did we drink when we did, and was it ever actually giving us what we hoped or believed it would?

Over time, we realized that we felt specifically called to help other Mamas rewrite their alcohol story. We were tired of the bullsh*t: The "Mommy's night out" cocktail mixes and cheeky "Wine O'Clock" jokes. Once we knew the truth about alcohol, we knew we had to speak out.

We decided to become certified in the revolutionary This Naked Mind coaching method and embark on the journey of helping other Mamas wake up to the truth about alcohol and drinking in a shame-free space. That's what The Observation Project was designed to do.
