Thank you all for posting + playing in the Summer Swag Bag Giveaways! There’s only a few weeks left and I would like to give a BIG shout out to our fabulous sponsors! I really enjoy sharing and supporting great products and companies that I love– especially that are owned by women! Most of the companies participating this summer are owned and/or managed by women who had a dream, stepped out, took a risk and made it happen! They all have an amazing story and I believe when we join together to help promote and build up our businesses– GREATNESS HAPPENS! I’m thrilled to introduce you to these amazing women:
Owner of the fabulous boutique LUSCIOUS SOUL
LUSCIOUS (adj) highly pleasing to the taste or smell, sweet to the senses or the mind, richly adorned, luxurious, extremely attractive.
SOUL (n) the principle of life, feeling thought and action…the spirit within.
“These two words simply define everything I strive to find within myself and my surroundings of the people and things that I love most. With that in mind Luscious Soul has been created to bring my favorite things to one place. You will find my love of travel, distinctive home decor, clothing, jewelry, products for your skin and body and so many things in between….Eclectik is a State of Mind. Most of the lines I carry are in the family of eco friendly: re-used, re-shaped, and/or recycled in some way, shape or form.”
Monica Blanco is Hollywoodʼs “it” girl in the world of sunless tanning.

Her trademark process gives clients a tan thatʼs safer and more ﬂattering than what you get at the beach.

Each member goes through the most rigorous training in the market before they are certiﬁed to practice the Colour Couture method in cities all over the United States. This allows women to open their own tanning businesses and thrive because the Colour Couture method is so popular.
“With over 17 years experience assisting a world-famous Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, I have learned what can be done to care for skin without the help of surgery. One of my specialties has been Facial Mesotherapy Vitamin Injections. This not-yet-well-known procedure is the skincare secret weapon of movie stars and models for youthful, glowing skin, and I have performed thousands of these treatments over the years. Also known as Mesolift or Mesoglow, the treatment consists of multiple micro-injections of vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and amino acids directly into the skin to nourish and rejuvenate, promote collagen production and stimulate the skin’s metabolism. And it works really, really well. But I know that many of the ‘luxury’ treatments available to us are unaffordable — lasers, fillers, peels, expensive vitamin injection treatments. So what could we all use? I always knew there was a better way…Being a cancer survivor, I also became concerned about the chemicals I was exposed to, and my skin was commanding attention at an accelerated rate. Through my health challenges, I was motivated to create something for myself that was totally natural, healthy, and effective. Something that combined my medical experience with my Greek heritage of using herbs and natural ingredients. My mother, who is from Greece, always used natural remedies when I was a child. Her favorite ‘cure-all’ was chamomile. From her, I learned the natural vitamin-packed powers of fruits, vegetables and herbs. So after years of research, self experimentation, testing with others (thank you) and numerous natural concoctions later, “ta, da, ta tah!” Beauty Sprinkles was born!”
“We are a small group of committed individuals producing skincare from a botanical perspective. We believe our products, our actions and our business practices will make a difference. We continually seek improvement through innovation and creativity. We love natural skincare, a good joke, a very dirty martini, a great pair of shoes, a buns burning hike, and figuring out ways to do things better. We think confidence is sexy, we think intelligence is sexy, we think great skin is sexy and we think that happiness is better than all of these. We think loving what you do is essential.”
