Today’s the day! our 1st birthday! i can’t believe we are already a full year young. in case you haven’t been stalking our every move, let me share with you what we did this year! we hosted some of the most amazing brands and makers in green beauty, including @kjaerweis, @rmsbeauty (via skype), @treatmentbylanshin, @osmiaorganics, @provinceapothecary, @innersenseorganicbeauty, @henneorganics and more! you’ve made diy masks, stretched with @wanderingwellness, made candles with @handmadehabitat and more! we moved makeup out of that tiny nook up on to the second floor so you could play with makeup without feeling too snug! we added new lines, launched a deodorant kit, and started offering distance skincare consults! but perhaps most importantly, we noticed that you come to us for retreat, for safe conversation. and we reflect on that today and everyday, amidst all our growth and evolution, so that we never forget that all the above amazingness would be nothing without y.o.u. thank you, take care community... i love you and can’t wait for year two! see you at the party tonight from 6-8!!
Are you coming to our birthday party tomorrow? it’s from 6-8! here’s a tiny sneak peek of the gift bag for the first 30 purchases tomorrow... yeah it is gonna be good 😍 we will also be kicking off a bunch of awesome giveaways from your fave brands tomorrow so stay tuned! ps: i can’t wait for gluten free cupcakes from @gfcakeclub and juice from @greenheartjuiceshop! yay!
If you’re looking for moisture from head to toe, start with these! the petal mask by @mahalo.care is a plumping and moisturizing mask that is overflowing with roses, hyaluronic acid and pink clay 🌺 the @oseamalibu body balm is like a cross between a lotion and a body oil - the perfect marriage of hydration and deep nourishing moisture ❤️ and finally, the @herbivorebotanicals coconut bath soak. ah, this is the yummiest! like a tropical vacation for your bath, the coconut milk moisturizes your skin while vanilla absolute and lime transport you to whichever tropical island you prefer 🌴 take your pick! ps: our birthday party is this friday from 6-8 and i just added more rsvps! join us!

Last week i shared about how lily loves playing with my makeup - it doesn’t mean anything to her now, it’s just something she sees me do and she mimics me. but at some point she will mimic other things, like negative self talk or the social pressure of looking and acting certain ways. i recognize that being in the “beauty industry” makes me that much more responsible for protecting her sense of self worth and respect. i asked you to share how you model compassion for your own bodies and your children’s bodies and the responses were lovely and i’ll share summaries here: 1. it’s not just girls who notice mommy wearing makeup! multiple mamas messaged me to share that their sons pretend to put on makeup and then ask “am i pretty now?” those mamas explained that they now make sure to reinforce that you don’t have to change yourself or wear makeup to be pretty - that they are perfect just as they are. 2. speaking of perfect, one mama said she asks her family not to call her daughter “perfect,” so she doesn’t feel the weight of expectation. she said she hopes her daughter will know there are more interesting things to be than “perfect.” 3. @gressaskin founder svetlana, who has a 5yo daughter, shared that she simply doesn’t talk about physical appearance in front of her daughter. if she’s having an emotionally challenging day, she’s up front about it and talks t through. and the daughters who replied about their mothers treating them with compassion echoed svetlana’s practice: their moms didn’t compliment their looks but instead their abilities. it’s honestly hard to do justice to all the replies you sent in and i will try to do a longer blog post on it, but i wanted to make sure i shared your feedback because it was all amazing! thank you for being such a thoughtful community!!
Who here loves @mayachiabeauty as much as we do? im reminded of the lyrics “you don’t know what ya got til it’s gone” when i think of this collection. when i was testing it out, i dropped my vial of highlighter and smashed it - i almost cried. then when i was finishing up the eye achiever i had a little panic moment because i loved it so much i didn’t want it to end... that usually signals to me that a collection should find a new home at take care ❤️ this particular product is extremely antioxidant rich and when paired with a vitamin c serum you have a true skin protecting, brightening and moisturizing power couple ✨ photo via @mayachiabeauty
