The Laurel Skin Studio Grand Opening

The Laurel Skin Studio Grand Opening

I had the privilege and honor of attending Laurel Skin Studio’s Grand Opening this weekend in San Francisco!

Laurel Whole Plant Organics – formerly Sequoia Beauty – was one of the first brands I ever blogged about here on The Organic Life. Back when Laurel Whole Plant Organics was Sequoia Beauty and The Organic Life was My Organic Life (ch-ch-ch-changes!) I was falling head over heels with Laurel’s Shaffer’s awesome, potent, gorgeous creations time and time again. Everything I tried, I loved. Everyone I saw, I raved to!

Laurel is a testament to accomplishing your dreams against all odds. She’s a beam of light and a beautiful business woman who really makes it work. I was super happy with Laurel’s standards and her commitment to her craft and impressed with this spirited chick who grew many of her brands awesome ingredients in her own garden. I continue to be blown away by what Laurel has accomplished in the past few years. Attending the opening of Laurel Skin’s Studio this weekend was like taking a big gulp of friendship Pride.

When I visited Laurel’s studio a few weeks ago, she was still preparing to open. We chatted a bit about what brands she was going to sell – many of my favorites, including La Bella Figura, Josh Rosebrook, Lurk and more!   We talked about how the place was going to look, but I was absolutely blown away to actually see it finished in all it’s gorgeous glory!

Every single one of Laurel’s team, friends and family were beaming with pride and happiness.

If you’re in the Bay area you MUST stop by!  You can take a look at Laurel’s gorgeous creation process, get a glimpse of the killer view of the Bay or shop the array of totally clean beauty, hair and makeup products, perfume, teas and tinctures Laurel has curated.

Hey lovelies,

Probably one of the most frequent questions I receive on my blog are what my favorite products are, and where you can get them.

We’ve been hard at work and we now officially set up a shop on the site!

You can browse my favorites, shop my personal collection or take advantage of discounts that are JUST for The Organic Life readers.

Enjoy, and let me know what you think about the shop in the comments!

I always love hearing feedback so we can make improvements for awesome readers like you.

I was over the moon when I found out I was shooting for Made For Pearl.

The electrifying and brilliant path Janis tore into history was cut tragically short well before her niece, Malyn Joplin, was ever born. Malyn was only privy to family stories and strangers’ accounts of her aunt’s colorful yet turbulent life. Growing up, Malyn was tormented by an insatiable curiosity surrounding Janis, matched by an internal resentment of having never met her in person. In search of a deeper connection to her aunt, Malyn launched Made for Pearl as a creative vehicle on her road to discovery. Each season, Malyn and the team at Made for Pearl source style inspiration from photographs, personal letters, and family stories that capture the passionate, untamed yet brave spirit of Janis. Every silhouette, fabric and detail aims to rebuild an authentic image of Janis through a modern, updated homage to her iconic style.

Made for Pearl’s inspired-by pieces are produced with top-quality materials, lovingly made in the USA. They’re designed not for the prevailing winds of a given season, but for the unchanging sensibility and aesthetic of fashion forward customers that are as constant as Janis Joplin’s unforgettable voice.  Made for Pearl designs capture the attention of fans everywhere, as well as inspire a new generation each season to discover the unmatched spirit and soul of Pearl.

The shoot was so fun!   We pumped out Janis Joplin Pandora and properly rocked out while we got ready, then ran around town trying too hard not to smile at all the complimentary whistles and whispers.  If you’re truly trying to stand out with a bohemian, timeless style, Made for Pearl is the perfect brand for you. 🙂

When The Great Beyond reached out to me on instagram, I was totally thrilled.  Bamboo clothing is the ultimate in luxury and style, comfort and eco-pride, and The Great Beyond does it right.

The Great Beyond creates bamboo clothing for the stylish and confident woman. Designed in Queensland, Australia referencing the classic styles you know and love to fit into your everyday lifestyle. Their vision is to create eco-friendly fashion through luxury fabrics and staple pieces that complement the modern woman and the environment.

WHY CHOOSE BAMBOO?

Clothing made of bamboo is extremely soft, durable and luxuriously comfortable. As a textile, bamboo is renowned for it’s many unique features and impressive environmental benefits.

Breathable and thermo-regulating: Feels great to wear in every season. Keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter.

Moisture Wicking: High moisture absorption and evaporation keeps you dry and comfortable when you are active or when the weather gets hot and humid.

Kind to sensitive skin: Because of the smooth and round structure of its fibers, bamboo clothing is soft and non-irritating, even to sensitive skin.

Easy Care: Crease resistant, colour fast and low shrinkage. Gentle warm wash and cool iron if needed will ensure long term colour clarity and perfect fit.

Sustainable: Bamboo is naturally prolific and resilient. It grows to maturity in 3-4 years and once harvested, can replenish itself within a year. It does not require intensive irrigation and thrives without need of pesticides or fertilisers.

Eco Restorative: Growing Bamboo improves soil quality and helps rebuild eroded soil. It’s extensive root system prevents erosion, and retains water in the watershed.

100% biodegradable: Ultimately bamboo clothing will simply return to the earth, with minimal environmental impact.
