IMPERFECTLY PERFECT // Stacy Nolan

I distinctly remember over two years ago cruising across Venice with a stroller in front of me to go to my first mommy meet up group that a friend of mine was attending.

I didn't know anyone there, I didn't even know whose house I was going to, but I was determined to get out and do the networking. Turns out, it was Stacy's house and we've been friends ever since. 

Its seems trivial and almost silly to mention this, but that day was very pivotal for me,...


MANGO MAGIC// Deep dive on Mango Butter.

It seems that every time we mention our formula has mango butter in it, most people look at us with a raised brow. "Mango butter?" It always kind of surprises me.

Yes, the Balm contains the magnificent, magical and super effective mango butter. 

When most people think of mangos they think of the sweet tasty flesh that comes from the fruit of the mango. Mango is an amazing fruit, and wonderfully good for you- but there is more to it. 

Mango butter, along with all of our other ingredients, is extracted from the seed of the fruit. That is where...


IMPERFECTLY PERFECT // Lulu Brud

I am so honored to include Lulu Brud in our Imperfectly Perfect series. I've followed Lulu online for quite a while, and it wasn't until connecting the dots in person a few months ago that I became intrigued and inspired by her campaign @voteyourchange.

Known personally online as @ladyluofthewolves Lulu quite literally epitomizes what this blog means to us. Perfection is not that interesting - and yet we are constantly bombarded by...


IMPERFECTLY PERFECT // Jamie Arrigo

Although Jamie and I have never really hung out, we've known - or known of - each other for quite some time, as we've both shared a mutual friend in Lacy Philips of To Be Magnetic. So in some sense, I feel like I've known her for a long time.

It wasn't until running into her at an event recently, where we both promptly launched in to some pretty deep story telling that I wish we'd hung out more. I've witnessed Jamie grow her family, expand her business, and evolve her sense of personal expression over the last...


IMPERFECTLY PERFECT // Andrea Hawken

I first met Andrea in a mommy and me class featured at our mutual friend's space Loom (which, if you aren't familiar and are in the parenting zone - is a must for support!) Bonding over parenting is either really easy, or really hard - it's a pretty good way to find the people you actually connect with. 

I immediately liked Andrea. She brings a hefty dose of sarcasm and self deprecating humor to the table which is super refreshing, and resonates with how I personally 'parent' - because, what do any of us really know?...
