Saje Wellness Debuts A Stunning Line Of 100% Natural Home Cleaning Supplies

April 19, 2018

I have been obsessed with Saje Natural Wellness  ever since I discovered their essential oils which blew all my others out of the ballpark. I am never without my Pocket Farmacy and the Blend Bar sits on my desk. And now my son, 7, carries the inhaler around at school and it makes him feel really cool. (With a warning DON’T YOU DARE LET SOME RUNNY NOSE KID STICK IT IN THEIR NOSE!).

Ok, so now it gets even better with their debut of  this line of products for “Clean Cleaning” – their first 100% natural home cleaning line formulated with three things in mind: health, wellness and safety of your family.

I’m sure you know by now as you are smart, dear readers, you ONLY want to approach your home the same way you do your bod…. And you can do so by protecting your family from some of the 200 chemicals we are exposed to as part of our daily routines, including cleaning your home.

Guess what…Those clean or green lines you see at Target ? ( I won’t name them) are dripping with synthetic chemicals. Not here.

No artificial ingredients, just nature. I just stocked up and was so busy cleaning with them, I literally could not remember where I left one – I had it in EVERY CORNER OF MY HOME! I think it’s in a closet somewhere?

Also the price is really right too, thank god. 

Like all Saje Natural Wellness products, the Clean Cleaning line is:

  • 100% natural, formulated from plant and mineral-based ingredients
  • Free from harmful synthetic toxins found in many cleaning products
  • Free from artificial fragrances: just natural aromas from pure essential oils

The line consists of…

OH! And here are the blends I can’t live without…Also their diffusers are BOMB!!!

(MALIN+GOETZ) x La Ligne Collaboration To Celebrate 4/20

April 18, 2018

My long running romance with (MALIN+GOETZ) is deep. First of all, founder Andrew Goetz was my big brother’s dear friend growing up and all I can remember is Andrew (ok Andy back then) being the funniest, coolest and warmest of all my bro’s friends. Everyone loved Andrew and now, the WORLD loves the line he created with Matthew Malin. Who doesn’t want to take home those little bottles when you see them in select (best) hotels and bathrooms. Ok, who DOESN’T just scoop them all and stash them in your bags, suitcases or wherever else you can find a little room.

So check out this rad collab with the obsessively addictive striped apparel brand La Ligne,founded by a trio of girls you just wanna be bff’s with,Molly Howard, Meredith Melling and Valerie Boster. Insert the little hand raising emoji here please.

The two simplistic brands, each known for creating everyday essentials in beauty and fashion, have partnered up to create a limited edition “High Notes” collection in honor of 4/20, (sweet!) inspired by the recent progress in the legalization of marijuana (hella yass).

The set includes the m+g cult-favorite Cannabis candle and an exclusive La Ligne ringer tee, specially embroidered with the phrase, “Sticky Icky.” The High Notes set is available for purchase as of Monday (4/16) on malinandgoetz.com.

HOW FREAKIN FAB?
What a cool cannabis collab. Sign me up and light it up. 🙂

Mystic Tribe – Hi-Vibe Messaging And Commitment To Consciousness

April 1, 2018

I am over the moon and back over the gorgeous duo, Kaerhart and Luke, and their spirited environmentally conscious-driven brand of sunny tees, tanks, suits and sweatshirts exploding with high-vibe messaging all done in a fun, flirty, slightly retro way. What I love is that there is a little wink to their graphics and slogans, a sense of playfulness that keeps it from being like other those other ‘spiritual’ slogan lines. Theres is intention in Mystic Tribe and a heavy dose of joy. It’s not over the top serious. It’s fun. You can feel it. And that is exactly what these Kaerhart and Luke radiate.

But what is behind the brand is serious. And that’s the fact that it’s driven by a commitment to environmentally conscious manufacturing practices by using eco-friendly textiles and production techniques that strive to eliminate water usage by cutting our the dye process. They only make garments to order. In other words: no waste.

I discovered them during a week long challenge served up by the adorable Elevate The Globe girls. Britt was wearing the PSYCHIC tee and I was like…I HAVE TO MEET THESE GUYS!

 

Mystic Tribe is the lovechild of founders Kait Kaerhart and Luke Monteleone. While sitting in a natural hot spring in Thailand reflecting on their lives (and careers), the duo had a profound realization that they had a higher calling to channel their innate talents and energy into endeavors that truly made an impact. Months later, Mystic Tribe was birthed from their desire to fuse the spiritual wisdom and practices they’ve learned over the years with modern day lifestyle. Our mission is to empower a tribe of spiritual seekers and yogis, while curating pieces that support the conscious lifestyles they lead. Our motto; “We Are One Tribe”, serves as the heartbeat of our brand and is reflected in every fiber of our existence.

Below are some of my favorite pieces. They are all so playful and bright – I want them all! So does Aria and what better messaging for a tween?!

MORE ABOUT THEIR CONSCIOUS PRACTICES

What’s also cool is they have a live podcast video show and they recently had Shaman Durek on who I love so so much and hope to see in the next few weeks for a private session. Check this out below – you can meet Kaerhart youself and this excellent interview with the beloved Shaman D.

The day is affordable (tickets as low at $44) and you can bring your future leaders (KIDS YES PLEASE!) too. How much do I love a high-minded event that is open to our next gen? A ridiculous shit ton.

SEE YOU THERE!!

A bit about the inception:

WITMA was founded in 2017 by Kara Erickson (Intuitive Event Producer),  Anna Lundgaard (Creative Facilitator).

With 300 physical attendees, an average panelist reach of about 1.5 million impressions, a live-stream audience of 90+K, and extensive podcast coverage on numerous channels – WITMA’s foundational event in NYC on September 22nd, 2017 proved to feed a need for more high-vibrational discussion.

A few key words on an iPhone note in the spring of 2017 became the beginning of what WITMA has grown to be.  The founders came together from varied backgrounds and disciplines, in synchronous fashion in 2017 to begin a collective effort of bringing empowerment and accessible, alternative information to like-minded people interested in facilitating the paradigm shift taking place globally – here and now.
