Mind, Body, Beauty!

My latest live event, Mind, Body, Beauty, was an interactive workshop that embraced the connection between our spiritual, mental and physical selves. It was so wonderful to be able to bring together a group of amazing women who are all passionate about cultivating inner and outer beauty! We were all so grateful and inspired by everyone who attended...

The hosts: Raquel, Victoria, Me + Jennifer
To begin the evening, Granola Glamour Founder and LifeStylist Raquel Griffin lead us through a powerful guided meditation. This put everyone in the room in a state of total bliss and tranquility. She reminded us of the importance of inner peace and taking the time to connect with our spirit. Be sure to check out Raquel's GG post featuring some of her go-to guided meditations!

Next, Holistic Happiness Coach Jennifer Kass introduced us to her signature program, The Happiness Blueprint. Jennifer outlined her simple and effective steps to creating more happiness, harmony and beauty in our lives. She had us envision someone we were grateful for and then share this with a partner. It was a magical moment that inspired many smiles, hugs and tears of joy amongst the participants! Download Jennifer's Happiness Blueprint here.

Green beauty at it's best!
Then it was time for my Summer Makeup Demo! I applied a fresh, easy look to my model using my favorite, all-natural makeup and skincare brands. I discussed the importance of choosing healthy beauty products as well as using makeup as a tool for enhancing our natural beauty and confidence. I was thrilled to be able to introduce products from our fabulous sponsors- Pangea Organics, CV Skinlabs, Alima PureRevolution Organics and Vapour Beauty- knowing everyone would be taking them home in their goodie bags!

Mind, Body, Beauty goodie bags rocked!
Great Jones Space was the perfect setting for this beauty and love-fest. It's warm, bright and has great energy, thanks to owner and curator Victoria Keen. Her vibrant artwork and lovely altar add special touches to the airy space. I recommend it to anyone looking for a space to host a class, workshop or art show.

Mascara Mojo

In the world of natural, plant-based cosmetics, formulating a mascara that does everything we want it to, sans the chemicals, hasn't been an easy task. Thankfully, there have been innovations in this area and there are now some great, non-toxic alternatives to the commercial brands.

The wonderful Organic Spa Magazine recently interviewed me on the subject! Check out "Mascara Mojo" for my mascara tips and top product picks in their August/September issue.
