to kick off my spring break yesterday, i enjoyed a great vegetarian meal at zinc cafe and market (and a couple glasses of rosé, of course) with an old friend from high school, nicole. there are few things that compare to great conversation over a great meal but one thing is seeing an independent woman thrive in her field.
nicole is currently the e-commerce manager at love goodly – a company that created subscription boxes for women by women. their focus is on being nontoxic, cruelty free and vegan. there is something refreshing about knowing that the products you are putting onto your skin (the largest organ on your body) are actually good for it.
at lunch yesterday, nicole was kind enough to bring me the february box (you guys know how i feel about the month of february)! the box was absolutely adorable.
the box contained only things that were both healthy and indulgent.
one of my favorite snacks ever – angie’s boom chicka pop sweet & salty kettle corn
for you chocolate lovers, a fine & raw chocolate bar with sea salt
zatik’s gratitude face serum – this is the product i am most excited about. i am all about preventative care and while i don’t have deep wrinkles in my skin as of yet, i definitely see smile lines from time to time that could turn into crow’s feet if unaddressed.
a two sided aisling organics makeup brush – highly functional and i don’t think there is a such thing as having too many brushes.
flower mill’s balm shell smells heavenly (and i could actually understand every ingredient used to make it) and removes anything from your skin that isn’t meant to be there – from makeup to excess oil. if you are like me, sometimes, your skin may not feel totally clean after using a makeup removal wipe. i am thinking this will be the perfect thing to add to my routine on the couple days per week that i wear makeup.
the best thing about the love goodly boxes are that there are a variety of items both to use and consume, every item is full sized so you can actually get several uses for each product and most importantly, exactly what is says on the box: eco. natural. healthy. no animals harmed. curated with love.
head over to love goodly to customize your own box or to subscribe. i think these boxes would make the perfect gifts!
