For the longest time my vanity space didn’t exist…I had a desk which I worked on at times. Honestly, it was a tiny vintage desk – which was actually a sowing machine back in the day – and I had my laptop, some makeup things and a mirror on it. (Not cozy or accommodating at all!) Most of everything else I owned cosmetic-wise, or my makeup kits were in our guest room.
Calling all clean beauty lovers! I’ve got a new found platform to discover natural and non-toxic beauty for ya, and it’s called NAVAGO! Okay, I’ll be honest, I literally had no idea who or what this was until a fellow PR pal mentioned it to me! But, it’s quickly becoming a destination to discover eco-conscious, cruelty-free, natural-based beauty & wellness brands that are all up & coming. The founders of the companies that are invited to join Navago, share in the philosophy that products should be gentle and healthy for your skin, your body and for the environment, too. Already diggin’ it, right? There’s more!
It’s here! It’s here! (FINALLY…it took me long enough!) My W.E.L.L. Summit recap! I know you’ve all been burrrrrnin’ to know how it went. As if my dozens of videos and photos on Instagram weren’t enough. ;) (Teasing!)
I know I have my Codes + Promos page, which generally highlights the deals going on that the moment, but I figured this would nice and straight to the point! Some of my favourite brands and green beauty shops are having special Black Friday Deals and sales, that have awesome savings! Check them out below! (In alphabetical order, cus I’m crazy like that..lol!) Oh, and be sure to check out my Shopping Guide page too if you’re curious about some of my favourite green beauty and wellness shops!
I like to think that I’ve always been one to think outside of the box when it comes to makeup looks… and this doesn’t mean I’ve got to use 15 different products! Thinking outside of the box for me means using what I’ve got and doing some fun looks that not many would think of right off the bat! We all know that monochromatic looks are in, a glossy lid is in, stains are in!
I’m soooo excited about this post! Remember that trip to Nashville I took a couple of weeks ago?! Well, it was nothing short of incredible! Not only did I spend time with family and see friends…but on that Friday, I had the pleasure of co-hosting the launch of Kjaer Weis‘ line at Nashville’s green beauty shop Lemon Laine. Laura Lemon, the lovely owner of Lemon Laine and I dreamed up this event for the past few months and it was incredible seeing it all come together! Thanks to Kjaer Weis and their gorgeous organic, clean makeup line, I was able to do two beautiful makeup looks on a model (the beautiful Jessica) – transitioning a day makeup look to a night look. The ever-so-loved (and gorgeous, might I add) Cafe Roze catered some delicious little bites and we had some tasty wine by Tavola Wine. The invited guests weren’t left empty handed, they each received curated Kjaer Weis goodie bags and were offered a divine Elements Truffles chocolate bar. (You’ve GOT to try these chocolates if you haven’t! They’re Ayurveda inspired, sweetened with honey, incredibly beautiful and so decadent!) Seriously, this event was beyond what I could have even imagined. Thank you to everyone for coming out! Can’t wait to host more like these in the near future!
