3 Years of Blogging = Week-long Giveaways!

OK guys and gals, it's been 3 years of blogging, we're in the middle of packing for a move, furnishing the home, selling our condo, homeschooling the kiddo, cooking meals from scratch, raising my serotonin, blah blah blah, so let's get down to it. Let's give some stuff away!

Thanks for being so awesome; here are some amazing brands you need to check out!

The final day of GIVEAWAYS is upon us! I'm excited to share a very coveted trio from the luxury skin care line AGENT NATEUR. The winner will receive:

All full size, a $240 value.

Jena, the founder of AGENT NATEUR, loves using Holi(Oil), rich in Vitamins A and E, Rosehip oil (and more) along with Holi(C), a topical face vitamin, together to address fine lines, acne, scars, sun damage and can promote collagen production and elasticity.

Vogue calls AGENT NATEUR a best natural deodorant on the market, and if it matters, it's a personal go-to and has been put to/survived the tests of workouts and southern humidity!

Ingredient sourcing is a big deal for AGENT NATEUR, and maybe why I was initially drawn to the products. You'll find the highest quality ingredients sourced locally and from France to formulate the line.

Enter below. Winner announced tomorrow! Good luck!

Day 5 of our week-long GIVEAWAYS is upon us and yes, this is a Berkey Water Filter system up for grabs!

Berkey has been the primary water filter system in our home for over 3 years now because it's hard to trust tap water these days. There seems to be a water contamination concern in every part of the country these days; whether it's Lead, Trace Pharmaceuticals, Fluoride, Chlorine, Viruses, VOC's, Chromium-6 and various other heavy metals, I feel comfortable knowing the water I'm drinking has been properly filtered without losing any necessary minerals. {You can read the full overview of Berkey here}

A Reverse Osmosis system wasn't an option for us because the filtering process removes beneficial minerals, and while those can be added back in, RO systems take about 4 gallons of water to produce 1 gallon of filtered water!

We also nixed the bottled water option ages ago because most bottled water companies are using plain tap water anyway, the plastic is a waste and environmental hazard and is full of BPA, BPS and/or phthalates. 

So Berkey has been our pick for an attractive counter top filtration system, and not to mention, it's been on the road with us quite a bit!

And one lucky winner will receive Berkey's Travel System ($228 value), the same system we own, with a 1.5 gallon storage capacity. Enter to win below!

Day 4 of our week-long GIVEAWAYS is none other than AYUNA's revolutionary skin care line based on the fasting theory. This brand caught my eye at the Indie Beauty Expo in Los Angeles because I had just written about how fasting before chemotherapy can help regenerate cells and reverse immunosuppression, so I was intrigued to see if similar results could be achieved through topical fasting.

Their approach is to feed the skin precisely what it needs to stay balanced and protected while accelerating its ability to self-repair and regenerate. This is incredible because basically when the body is kick started into “self-healing” mode, it identifies your skin’s needs and deficiencies and addresses them!

All products from AYUNA are even formulated for safe application around the eye contour so there is no need for a separate eye-area specific product. Furthermore, AYUNA products are developed to also protect the skin from toxins and oxidative and inflammatory stress.

You can read my full review on their line here.

AYUNA is offering their Minimum set (a $240 value) which includes a full size CREAM, travel size ESSENCE, a waterless exfoliation peel, and travel size BALM, a Volcanic Revitalizing Mask. My sensitive skin LOVES this line, particularly the CREAM and ESSENCE, so I’m thrilled to get to offer one lucky winner this set!

The winner will get to choose between the CREAM I or CREAM II:

CREAM I, or Light, the product I use, provides an immediate velvety texture without any greasy residue. It absorbs quickly and may be the desired preference for those leaning toward an oily skin type.

CREAM II, or Rich, provides a high level of hydration and nutrition with a creamier experience that may be desired for those with drier, more fragile and/or more mature skin.

It's the third day of GIVEAWAYS! Through my blog, I've been able to meet a few of the real-deal clean beauty innovators such as the one and only Josh Rosebrook. You may know him as a skin and hair guru, but his perfume is"the one!"

If you've been on the hunt for a clean perfume free of synthetic and harmful ingredients, you may or may not have had Josh's 'Ethereal' pop up in your search.  Of course, Ethereal's formulation adheres to the same ingredient-integrity standard Josh is known for; produced with all certified organic essential oils, resins and absolutes in a base of certified organic grape alcohol. It doesn't get any better than that!

The fragrance of Ethereal is definitely unisex as it suits both men and women. Josh based the fragrance from his Hydrating Accelerator, so the similarity I find is with the subtle sweetness layered within the many facets of the scent. Though the sweetness seems to get a bit more prominent on me the longer I wear it, it doesn't overtake the scent.

I'm not exaggerating when I say this clean perfume is smells amazing and holds up all day. It's bold, it's gentle, it's earthy, it's creamy, it's elegant.

One lucky winner gets to take home a full size Ethereal (a $145 value); enter below!

Keeping this anniversary GIVEAWAY going into day two, we have the lovely sustainable and organic fashionable clothing company Miakoda and their cozy wardrobe staple, a pair of their black leggings!

While ingredient integrity is important to Miakoda, as you can see by their sourcing of organic and eco-friendly material, what's even more important is the fact these garments are sewn in ethical factories paying fair wages to their employees.

Slow fashion can still be beautiful and comfortable! Enter to win these soft and stretchy organic cotton leggings below!
