I’m just back from my trip to the UK and already suffering in the Italian heat! The good news is that last night I bought some mosquito screens for my windows so I can sleep with some fresh air and not wake up covered in bites! The weather was very pleasant in the UK and I slept really well! I’ve just heard that they are having another heat wave but I couldn’t have been happier with how the trip went! I had a great time in London. Not only was it wonderful to see my family and my GMA friends but I managed to sneak in a couple of concerts too and even a musical in the West End!
Anyway! Today I would like to tell you a little more about some of my favourite winners from the 2022 USA Global Makeup Awards.
First of all we have Juice Beauty who went home with the Gold Award for Best Primer
With their Illuminating Primer. Let’s take a deeper look into Juice Beauty’s beginnings and goals!
Juice Beauty was founded by serial entrepreneur Karen Behnke who, after falling pregnant and taking extra care about the ingredients in the wellness and skincare products she was buying, wanted to make sure she used only organic products that couldn’t potentially damage her or her baby. She has been passionate about environmentalism since she was a teenager in Michigan and her lifelong passion for wellness stems from this period when she battled a rare blood disorder.
With Juice Beauty, Karen wanted to create the kind of product which she had been desperately searching for herself! Her goal was to create luxurious and organic products which worked better than their conventional counterparts which were almost always filled with chemicals. In 2005 she started the company and spent 5 years working with top scientists to solve complex formulation challenges. Her products have been thoroughly tested and she can take great pride in achieving and surpassing the high standards she set for Juice Beauty!
Another of my favourite winners from the USA Global Makeup Awards is NeoNaturelle who won Best Serum for their C-Major Vitamin C Serum 23%.
Neonaturelle are committed to honouring their principles and lay them out clearly. The first is that they care a great deal about their customers and also the world which we share. They have made the decision to only use recyclable packaging, to avoid plastic and encourage customers to reuse the glass jars that their serum comes in. They are also dedicated to continuous innovation and treat each new formula with care and respect while ensuring that they are safe and effective. Neonaturelle are based in Richmond, British Columbia and have a wonderful blog which goes into great depth regarding information on organic ingredients and advice for vegans who are concerned about ethical options and ingredients to avoid!
Thanks again for joining me while I took a look at the background behind these worthy winners. I hope you’ve enjoyed learning about them as much as I have!
I’ll be back soon!
Ciao for now!
Experience gift ideas for Christmas - favourites from the Global Makeup Awards team
So, my last blog was about Christmas gift ideas and the one before that was about grabbing bargains during the Black Friday Sales.
Today though, I want to think about alternatives to consumerism! Can we give gifts without purchasing products? I think we can and I’d like to share some of my own ideas while encouraging you to suggest your own! They could have just occurred to you which is great or maybe you have a tried and tested method that you’re happy to share!
So, the first ideas which spring to my mind do still involve parting with some cash! But don’t worry, I have some more creative ideas which won’t cost you much and might give an even more memorable experience!
My first idea is a trip Ice-Skating! It’s Christmassy, fun and a day out you’ll never forget! Yet it’s so easy for the Christmas period to go by without a trip! At the ice-rink in Greenwich, London prices are from £15 for adults and £8.50 for children! And don’t worry that you might not be able to do it! Almost no-one can! But, if you really enjoy it you never know, you could end up going throughout the year then really impressing your friends next Christmas!
If you don’t fancy ice-skating then perhaps a trip to the theatre would make a special day out! Personally, I’m pretty jealous that my Global MakeUp Awards colleague Joanna is booked to see Frozen - The Musical with her family just after New Year! That looks like it’s going to be great!
Or, and this is a little bit more for the grown-ups, you could take a loved one to see Moulin Rouge. Of course over Christmas we are spoilt for choice when it comes to Theatre shows so even if those aren’t your bag you’re bound to find something you and your friends/family will love!
However, personally I’m not going to the Theatre this Christmas. My present to my son is tickets to the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert in London next June! He’s really excited but it's a long time to wait! I’m a fan too (what a coincidence!!!) so I’m also looking forward to the show, especially after the last two years where we’ve had such a drought of live music opportunities. It's really one of my favourite things to do but I heard Damon Albarn being interviewed on the radio a few days ago and he expects most musicians to be squeezing 3 years worth of touring into one year in 2022 so I’m going to save my money for some shows!
And this brings us to free ideas! Well obviously days out to the museums in London are always a great shout but how about some winter picnics and hikes! Also, I love finding small local festivals and concerts which don’t come with the price tag of big American music acts as well as being really fun and intimate affairs!
So, those are my ideas! But what are yours???
Please let me know!
Ciao for now!
