I am absolutely beaming with excitement to introduce today’s very special, informative and inspiring conversation with Jessa Blades. A true force in the natural beauty industry, she has made it her life’s work to teach the power of self-care and empower women to own their individuality.
I have been following Jessa for years now, first discovering her work in the beginning stages of exploring this world of natural beauty. Her energy pulled me through even on the computer and I knew that as soon as I had the chance I would be attending one of her workshops. When the opportunity presented itself a few months ago, I didn’t think twice about signing-up (definitely follow Jessa on Instagram to stay up-to-date on all events + daily inspiration). I can’t recommend experiencing Jessa’s knowledge in-person enough. You will walk away with valuable information and feeling the true possibility and excitement that comes with having the tools to feel your best.
1. Wonderful tools from Sophie of Philosophie on how to get yourself away from negative self talk and move into a more positive mindset.
2. Can’t wait to get my Clean Green Eats cookbook, this salad is the first thing I am making!
3. A sneak peek at what you can find in the Yoga By Candace Mantra Box. I absolutely LOVED receiving mine in the mail. Filled with delicious snacks I have been wanting to try, natural beauty products, yoga accessories and more. Check out below to see other goodies that arrived and click here to order the November box before they sell out!
Conscious commerce is a state of mind. It is shopping with purpose, for items that bring joy to your life and help you express your inner light. It is in support of small businesses, of creators, men and women who are dedicated to their craft. To use your dollar with passion, thought, awareness and intention. It is bringing an end to mindless purchasing and creating an environment that supports the life you dream of.
YOKE is a company that embodies everything you could want when it comes to connecting with the goods that you purchase and surround yourself with. Started in 2012 by Tamara Jones (keep your eyes peeled for a very special interview + collaboration announcement this week!) it is a collection of Ayurvedic Apothecary plant-based beauty, a giving-based accessories line and yoga-inspired ritual homewares.
Earth Tu Face has quickly become one of my favorite skincare lines and it is not even a question that I will be re-ordering everything I used as well as exploring more of the line. In this journey to a more natural beauty routine, I have realized that it is not just about the actual products I am using but the story behind them. It creates a very special connection and sacred ritual in my routine as well as positive energy in the way I am using my dollar. Through my research and experience with Earth Tu Face, I have become a huge fan of herbalists Sarah Buscho and Marina Storm, the creators of the brand. Nothing makes me happier than to be able to support a company who is creating skincare with the motto, “you should never put on your skin what you wouldn’t put in your mouth.”
When I first discovered Addictive Wellness I thought it must be too good to be true. A sugar-free chocolate, made with raw cacao, superfoods, herbs, fair-trade and free of any ingredients I was allergic to? This was a rare find and I knew I had to taste it to believe it! Sage and AnnaBlanca were kind enough to gift me their chocolates and upon arrival I immediately made a pot of tea to sit down and taste-test. The feeling of euphoria that washed over me after the first bite was priceless. High-quality, nutritious and and insanely delicious, I knew I found my go-to dessert and diet staple that was going to satisfy me and nourish my body. Sage and AnnaBlanca are both extremely bright stars, passionate and fun-loving in changing the way we think about chocolate. I adore them both and am thankful for the work they do. This is the food of love and it is time to enjoy it without the guilt or afternoon energy slump. One bite of Addictive Wellness and you will be hooked for life (I know I am)! Now let’s get to know the beautiful couple behind this truly addicting treat!
