After a weekend filled with Insurance nonsense and car wreck antics I’m pumped to be back here talking about green, clean beauty. It’s my happy place. I loved talking about and doing the One Room Challenge as well as it was fantastic to hear from some of the women I really admire from around the web. To be fair most were about Vincent and drinking wine, I consider this the basis of all friendships so I’m totally bff with them all now (not true but I wish it was).
There’s some great stuff going around the web and I wanted to make sure I passed it along! Some of these sales end today so don’t delay!!!
1. S.W.Basics at Target!!
S.W.Basics now at Target! Find out how one of our favorite brands ended up in the shop we all secretly , and not so secretly love : http://blog.swbasicsofbk.com/post/101754362125/bullseye:
Here are the deets on the partnership:
- Three prices will be going down, Cleanser (now $22), Toner ($22), and Exfoliant ($24).
- NOTHING else is changing. Not the formulas, not the quality of the ingredients, not the branding, nothing.
- We have launched on target.com (free shipping, subscription service, and lots more goodies oh my!) already.
- We will be launching in select premium aisles in March, 2015. Look out for the map soon!
- We will absolutely continue to work with and support our other retailers throughout the world.
- Because of the partnership, we can now afford some amazing improvements including USDA organic certification, coming soon!
This is a great blog post by Sarita Coren, a favorite green beauty blogger who takes some insane instagrams. When you start buying green, and avoiding these ingredients, the response isn’t typically. Good for you so healthy! It’s closer to “well the toxic stuff won’t really kill me…” or my favorite “well, lead in your lipstick really won’t kill you.” You can’t have it in your paint people, and you’re not even licking walls… and while I have my own manifesto, this is a great article and a great way to talk about clean beauty with the doubters and haters:
A Statement on shopping at this time of year: A lot of these posts are about products to buy and where to buy them and can come across like BUY BUY BUY. I don’t think you should, but I will say this. You should put your hard earned money where you mouth. You can buy lots of gifts for people this year, and buy buying from any of these links about the gift you give is to bring health, well being, love , and care to someone you care about; and those well earned bucks? They support small business, the united states (mostly – Canada you’re cool too, you count, we got your back), and mostly the women who run them. So this year don’t just buy what you don’t need , will throw away, or what puts money into the hands of insanely wealthy corporate dbags who will turn around and buy a lexus with a red bow on it for their teenage son (WHO ACTUALLY DOES THAT?!?!? WHY DO THEY RUN THOSE COMMERCIALS?!?!).
