It's that time of year again and my goodness did it come up fast this year! I can't believe Thanksgiving is this Thursday and then I get into full on Christmas mode. We always get our tree on Black Friday and decorate the house with all of our holiday decorations. It's one of my favorite days of the year! For those of you who are like me and like to skip all of the black Friday drama & lines, I've put together a shop local guide for you to check out! These are awesome local businesses, most of which you can place an order online or through the phone and you never have to leave the comfort of your home! Now that's my kind of shopping! Please reach out directly to the following businesses for all of your holiday gift giving needs.
Beautycounter is a BCorp company that offers cosmetic and personal care products that are both luxurious AND safe for the whole family. BC was created to combat the lack of regulation and legislation in the U.S. government. I am passionate about this cause because I feel that what we put on our skin is just as important as what we put in our bodies. And while there are other companies who are striving for "clean beauty", I know Beautycounter's methods for testing are the most accurate, AND they have some of the best performing, and most affordable products in the industry (ie. Allure's Top Beauty Lists, Goop Favorites, Vogue pick, etc.).
My goal is to make a difference in this industry so that one day my kids won't have to worry about looking at labels on their products for ingredients like parabans, toxic chemicals, carcinogens, and more. For now, I'll trust the company that bans more than 1,500 different ingredients that could cause harm to myself and my family. Please reach out to me for free samples!

Rodan + Fields
My name is Leah Reed but people call me Elle. I’m a skincare consultant for Rodan + Fields, the #1 Premium Skincare Brand across all channels, in all of North America. Our products were previously sold in high end retail and were #1 in Nordstrom. We are the fastest growing skincare line in the U.S. six years in a row, launched in 2015 in Canada, recently opened for market in Australia as of September 2017 and be heading into the Asian markets soon with 190+ more countries to follow. If that weren't enough as reasons why I became a consultant, let me share my story.
Ever since I moved to Austin seven years ago, I’ve been suffering from multiple skin issues. Three years ago, I caved in and saw a dermatologist and was diagnosed with severe Eczema and chronic Dermatitis. Every time, I felt like my face was rotting during outbreaks two to three times a week. I was prescribed a topical steroid which controlled the outbreak but just kept coming back week after week. My skin issues affected a lot of my relationships as I didn’t want to be seen out, missing important friends and family events, stayed home instead of taking my two year old out on playdates, couldn’t stand what I looked like and I was constantly depressed. When I finally found Rodan + Fields, I was already skeptical but also very desperate. A sister-in-law of a long time friend recommended me to use the “solutions tool” to find what is the best product to use according to my skin concerns. I ended up getting the regimen for sensitive skin and thought “here comes nothing!” To my surprise, that same week I started, I did not have any outbreaks. None. Zero. Twelve weeks and counting, not one outbreak. I went from not wanting to go out and be seen, to loving life catching up with friends and meeting new people. I have gained more self-confidence in these past weeks than I ever did in the last seven years. My husband saw the changes in my skin and my attitude week after week and decided he, too, may benefit from one of the skin regimens we offer. He suggested that if I loved this product so much, perhaps I can share it to other people and help them with their skin struggles. That’s when I decided to become a consultant. Our skin makes up 90% of our body. We should take care of it, invest in it, and love the skin we are in, every single day. I’m so passionate about all our products that I’ve decided to invest in my customers this Christmas! Check out all the special and giveaways I have in store for you!
