Sunkissed Summer

Want to keep your Sunkissed look all season long? Try going organic! All natural products versus chemically induced ones make all the difference. Clean beauty products, organic fabrics, and healthy, all natural meals are ways to keep that summer glow year round.

At Maven, we like to incorporate all natural products in our daily lifestyle and that starts with the products we put on our skin and face. RIPE, an all natural bath and body company, is one of our favorites!  We are currently obsessing over their Travel Cologne in Salt + Sea. This vegan perfume oil is made with coconut oil, vitamin E and is perfect to slip in your purse. The earthy scent is far from overpowering and will make you wish you were on the beach- if you weren’t already.

Another line us Maven Girls swear by, is eco-friendly Priti NYC Nail Polish. All colors, from neutral to bright, are completely non-toxic, free of formaldehyde as well as cruelty-free. Not only are the ingredients vegan but the company is very active in working with various charities and local events. We love supporting business who give back to the community! Some of our favorite nail colors are Purple Prince Tulip, Nice Gal Peony, and Scotch Thistle. What are yours?

Amour Vert, one of the companies Maven adores, is a brand for the 21st century consumer. Amour Vert does all their manufacturing in America, only uses non-toxic dyes and innovative fabrics. What amazes us, is how on top of being a successful green company, Amour Vert has totally nailed amazing designs that we love! Our Pineapple Top from the brand is a summer must-have. Paired with some shorts, this top is great for a bike ride along the beach or afternoon lunch with girlfriends.

Last but not least, a great way to keep your summer glow is by eating all natural. Southern California offers weekly farmers markets all over the place. Our favorites include the Original Farmers Market in West Hollywood and the Sunday Farmers market in Venice Beach off Main Street. There is no comparison with fresh, organic fruits and veggies! We love this Strawberry Kale Salad on Gimme Some Oven’s blog.  This salad, filled with avocado and strawberries, is the perfect lunchtime treat. Topped off with a light balsamic vinaigrette will leave you wanting more! What are some of your favorite summer salads?

    I love all things organic. While I am not going to pretend that I don’t still purchase non-organic products, I agree in the importance of buying organic as much as possible. I feel so much better about myself when I purchase organic fruits and vegetables… if only the price of buying all organic would go down lol

    I try to eat organic and use organic skin and hair care products whenever I can, but I admit I haven’t dipped into organic clothing! It really is so important to reduce the amount of harmful chemicals in our environment. I’m glad that so many regular grocery stores are starting to stock organic food now so it doesn’t always take a trip to Whole Foods or the health food store.
