Today in honor of Eco-Wednesaday, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite products and a new DIY site I’ve been checking out. Let me know what you think and if you know of a product that would be a Eco-Fab Wed fit, let me know. Now on to my picks!
HollyBeth’s Natural Luxury sources the finest certified organic ingredients to create personal care products that nourish the body and soul. With each purchase you know you are not only doing something that is good for their body and the environment, but for the greater good of us all as HollyBeth’s Natural Luxury support numerous local and global charities (UNICEF) that share their philosophy.
Marigold & Sweet Basil Cream inspired by the vibrant flowers of India and the sweet, earthy flavors of Thailand.
Citrus Body Cream inspired by the bright, clean smells of fresh Latin American fruit.
Lavender Hand Cream inspired by the rolling purple hills of California’s lavender farms.
Treat your bridal party with a pampering Lavender Gift Set.
Each Gift Bag comes with ½ oz sizes of the Marigold & Sweet Basil Shea Butter, Rose & Geranium Face Moisturizer, Citrus Body Cream, Butterfly Lip Nectar and a sample of both the Flourish® Perfume and Wildflower Dry Oil. It is an inexpensive treat and fabulous way to say “Thank You”.
A new site I’ve found is called www.MyWeddingWorkbook.com. It’s specifically for DIY brides who are budget-minded (our tools are free to use), detail-oriented (it seems much more comprehensive than other online planners) and environmentally conscious (it’s electronic, so there’s no need to use paper). According to their records, they have more than 5,000 DIY brides-to-be using it. It’s a clean-cut interface and is user friendly. If you have tried the others, why not try this. It just may be the answer you were looking
Aglow a Soy Candle Company is created with rhinestone and beaded encrusted appliqués on recycled glass are a keepsake. There is a magnificent array of symbols and initials (pick a letter!!) and have a burn time from 60+ to 90+ hours and because of the soy based wax burn all the way down to the bottom and wiped clean for use later for so many different things!!
Whether the candles have been gifted to brides maids, on the tables at the rehearsal dinner, used for the Unity Candle, for the Sign in Book area, on the gift table, the bride and grooms table and/or the guests tables, it is a show stopper.
Swarovski opened their first Crystallized Swarovski Elements shop on Broadway last month and it was amazing!! Chloe Sevigny, Blake Lively, Evan Rachel Wood and Lucy Liu were there and looking amazing in their bling!
For you my brides, you will be able to come in and customize jewelry in your color schemes while sipping on champagne. Bring your bridesmaids and let them have some fun as well. Buy different crystal components to adorn your veil, shoes, handbag, or for those who want to purchase pieces as is, you can do that as well. The lounge space will also be able for private events such as showers. Come in for a relaxed event while drinking wine, munching on different canapés, and have your own instructor show you how to create the perfect bracelet.
As for the cost of the crystal components, they range as well, starting at roughly $10. The price points for finished pieces range from $40 – $160 for most of the pieces.
Hope these give you some more ideas to make your wedding extra special.
Until next time…
