Goddess Huntress | Cheeky Monkey Nail Polish Giveaway

 

This year, I just got acquainted with Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics, a spicy pants nail brand that is not only high quality, but  also 5 free!

5 free is always my M.O. 3 free just doesn’t cut it in my book.

You probably know that 3 free nail polish means that it is without the main nasty toxins: formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP).  5 free takes it two steps further sans formaldehyde resin/tosylamide and camphor.  Less is more.

Some of Cheeky Monkey’s color names will make you snicker and blush.  I’ve been sporting a great Cheeky Monkey nude on my fingers called No Bra for the past couple weeks.  Next week I’m moving on to Granny Panties, an opaque white…come to think of it, I’m going from topless to completely covered!

Cheeky Monkey’s full spectrum of 60 colors are also cruelty free!

To celebrate Goddess Huntress’ 5th birthday, Cheeky Monkey is giving away a nail trio to 2 lucky Goddess Huntress readers!  

The first nail trio is a base coat (Wet Dream), a soft pink with a hint of berry (Bite Me), and top coat (I Like It On Top), pictured above first row at top from left to right. The second trio will include a shimmery champagne pink (Hoe Hoe Hoe), second row above.

CV Skinlabs Body Repair Lotion + Giveaway

Goddess Huntress | CV Skinlabs Body Repair Lotion Giveaway

CV Skinlabs is a skincare line that takes skin care to new heights.  CV Skinlabs is first and foremost formulated to healthfully soothe and repair skin that been taxed by the effects of chemotherapy, dermatitis, eczema, radiation burns, and post-laser hair removal. Yet, CV Skinlabs beautifully nourishes and boosts all skin types, taxed or not.

Britta Aragon, founder and cancer survivor, sought out to create a clean skincare line that benefitted and healed sensitive skin, which is more prone to the effects of toxins. Britta saw the vulnerability of sensitive skin first-hand with her father’s eight year battle with cancer and also being a Hodgkins survivor herself.  With her expertise as a skin therapist and makeup artist, she created CV Skinlabs to provide ethical, non-toxic skincare based in science to heal vulnerable skin.

CVSKINLABSLOTION1

 

When I received my CV Skinlabs Body Repair Lotion and Rescue + Repair Spray, I immediately handed off the Body Repair Lotion to my boyfriend who has dealt with eczema his whole life.  His eczema has to be managed daily, as he almost died from it as an infant.  So here he is the expert in eczema and here am I just seeking a healthy solution that would put his prescription topical treatment on hiatus.

Andrew abandoned his famous drugstore oatmeal brand lotion (which isn’t so clean as they market) that kept all things calm on the skinfront for CV Skinlabs Body Repair Lotion for the past month.  It has served his skin so well, that he has officially divorced that other lotion brand he used for decades that starts with an A and ends with an O.  He has seen such a positive difference in his skin with CV Skinlabs, he has requested I purchase more…which I’m doing tonight.  A request I’m gleefully willing to fulfill.

CV Skinlabs Body Repair Lotion is stellar for all types of skin: highly compromised, moderately compromised, and somewhat compromised…(non-compromised skin simply doesn’t exist)

Being that CV Skinlabs has made such a difference in our household, CV Skinlabs and I will be giving away one Body Repair Lotion to one lucky winner in honor of Goddess Huntress’ 5th Birthday!

Interview With Tata Harper + Giveaway

Goddess Huntress | An Interview With Tata Harper & Giveaway

It is no secret. I love Tata Harper. There is nothing not to love.

Tata Harper Skincare has seamlessly married natural skincare and luxury skincare, formulations bonded in cutting edge technology. Her emphasis on natural technology, probably fueled by her engineering background, has led to the launch of her Supernatural Collection, three anti-aging serums delivering concentrated antioxidants. And guess, what…you see results.

She is shifting the skincare industry.

I had the pleasure to interview Tata and am thrilled to share her insight with you.

GH/ You really have set the benchmark for outstanding clean, luxury skincare.  What influenced you to create Tata Harper Skincare?


TH/ It was all born out of a personal mission to create high-performance, luxurious skincare products that were 100% natural and nontoxic for real. After my stepfather was diagnosed with cancer about ten years ago, my family and I made a decision to go natural and nontoxic wherever possible in our lives, so my search for completely safe replacements for my high-tech antiaging skincare began, and I came up empty handed. Everything I found during my search was a combination of natural and synthetic; no one had created an antiaging line that delivered results without a single synthetic chemical ingredient. I was sure it could be done, and I was sure there were other women like myself who were searching for beauty without compromise, so the journey began. The line took five years to formulate and a team of eight European chemists; we started from scratch instead of buying formula bases like most skincare companies. We stayed true to our goals of creating skincare that really works with zero synthetics, and now that the world is catching on to the importance of safety in skincare, labs around the world are discovering amazing new active ingredients. It’s an exciting world to be a part of!

GH/ You are also one of the first pioneers to fuse advanced science + technology with completely natural skincare formulations, I bet your chemists and biologists must have a ball in the labs. Any exciting/surprising discoveries you can share?

TH/ We’re discovering new things all the time! I always have a stack of scientific articles with me from labs around the world that are investing in natural technology. Our product creation process is a little different than that of most beauty companies; first, we start with a product function – like, what do we need this product to do? For what skintype? And then we look for the most amazing natural ingredient technology that can deliver the result we want, with research that proves that it works. We don’t start with a price point – we create the most efficacious product possible, and then see what we’ve got. It’s a fun process! As for exciting discoveries, those are top secret :) but we are working on a body lotion for the spring, as well as a new aromatherapy treatment!

Goddess Huntress | Tata Harper Vermont Farm

GH/ Also unique, is that a great amount of your ingredients are actually grown on your organic 1200 acre farm, Julius Kingdom Farm! Is it a breath of fresh air to have quality control of your ingredients in your backyard?

TH/ It’s definitely an amazing part of the business; it gives us a lot of control over the quality and also means there’s a little bit of our Vermont home in each bottle. It helps us keep the carbon footprint of the business lower, too, since we’re at least supplying fifteen ingredients from our own farm every year, so there’s less to ship around the world. Plus, we are certain we can trust that they’re grown sustainably, since our farm is certified Organic. If we could, we’d love to source everything locally, but the rest of our ingredients come from all around the world – Israel, Crete, the Amazon, Canada, Poland, etc. The ingredients are amazingly powerful and have incredible stories, so we love that our formulas are both global and local.

GH/ You grew up in Colombia and trained as an engineer there.  Were you the least bit interested about beauty as a little girl or did that develop later on?

TH/ I’ve been someone who loved to buy and experience new types of skincare and beauty products since I was a young girl, which is an interest that came from spending a lot of time with my grandmother, mother and sisters doing beauty rituals together on the weekends. Making exfoliating masks, creating creams and oils to use on our skin – we spent mostSaturday mornings together just beautifying. So I’ve always loved skincare, and it’s always been important to me to take care of my skin and have good preventative antiaging habits – but I had no plans on entering the beauty business until much later.

GH/ Lastly…we all have our naughty indulgences…mine are wine and french fries. What would you say is yours? (no worries, we won’t judge!)

TH/ I definitely indulge in sweet snacks throughout the day – mostly chocolate. I have a major sweet tooth!

And now Tata and I have a gift for you! We are giving away a bundle of my four favorite Tata Harper Skincare products to one lucky GH reader! Valued over $430

Sweatin’ To Erin Stutland

erinstutssweat

On this first day of bikini season, I bring in my lovely fitness +  life affirmation expert, Erin Stutland, to talk to us about her number one beauty booster that hands down works better than anything else…and it is something I am now doing in my daily regimen…hint, hint.

I’ll let Erin take it from here.

Ain’t nothin’ like a new pair of shoes or a hot summer dress. Nothing feels sexier than a fresh organic lip-gloss or crackin’ open a tube of non-toxic mascara.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my products.

That said, no matter how much time or money I spend on these beautifying treats, my VERY BEST beauty BOOSTER comes for FREE.

Want to know what it is?

SWEAT.

That’s right. A good ole’ fashion sweat session keeps mind at peace, my skin glowing and booty just right.

Even with all the clothes in my closet, if I am not feeling good in my body, I will open up that bad boy and swear I have NOTHING to wear.

To avoid this problem, I make sure to SWEAT. Regularly.

Whether I dance, ride, stretch or run, I sweat NOT to burn calories, but to get out of my head and in touch with the most powerful parts of myself.

I sweat as a way to heal.

I sweat as a way to connect with myself and become more of who I know I am meant to be.

Being a former professional dancer, I know there is no right or wrong way to move. Like Nike says: Just do it.

And exercise doesn’t have to feel like a chore. It can feel like an expression of your soul. (Talk about boosting your beauty.)

The next time you open up your closet and just feel BLAH, try turning on some tunes and free your mind with 20 minutes of unabashed dancing solo in your room.

Do 20 jumping jacks, 10 pushups, 10 squats, 10 lunges and repeat.

Do 5 sun salutations.

Just do something that makes ya sweat.

You can also try my FREE SHRINK SESSION WORKOUT. While you are moving and sweating, you are saying mantras. Out loud.

I know, it sounds super cheesy, but it is the most effective way to train your body and your mind, together.

Speaking these powerful phrases out loud WHILE you move will allow these ideas to seep into your muscles, your bones and every cell in your body.

Next time you kick on some tunes and start to move your body try affirming this bad boy out loud:

My thoughts are now manifesting. My desires are now manifesting. I can see it. I can feel it. It is done. It is done.

Now go get your sweat on!

Thank you so much, Erin!  How about you Beauties? Are you ready to sweat?

I’ve got a beauty bonus for you beautiful sweaters and affirmers…see below.
