Hippie Stick from Soul Glow Artistry
We love this Honey Bee Lip Butter which is a lovely warm nude colour with a soft shimmer. When you finish your Hippie Stick Lip Butter the eco-friendly tube has cornflower seeds nestled within it, providing a valuable food source for our local bees.
A little bit about Soul Glow Artistry
Soul Glow Artistry provides cruelty free products and services that have been carefully curated by Jamie. As a Make Up Artist, Jamie chooses to use only products that she loves, that she uses on herself and her clients and gives her clients an opportunity to purchase these items from Soul Glow Artistry.
Soul Glow Artistry sells a range of vegan and cruelty free cosmetics and hair care which are not only high quality brands, but are contributing to world in a positive way so you can do good, look good and feel good. Jamie is actually Lusid's very first stockists. She loved Lusid's product so much, that she wanted to share her Lusid hair transformation with others.
Lusid's very own Travel Stick Set
Although we are bias we love the Lusid travel set because it enables you to take your Lusid shampoo and conditioner with you away from home in the neat little aluminium tin. It's awesome because it doesn't take up a lot of space for when you need to travel light. Perfect for travel overseas, locally, or even just a weekend away.
Jen loved Lusid products so much that she bought the business
It was Jen, our Lusid hair extraordinaires fear of missing out that breathed life to Lusid's existence. Founder of Lusid, Tash had hand crafted her first The Curly Bar and shared her creation with Jen. Jen whom has straight hair had instant FOMO as she wanted to use plastic free hair care. She loved the fact that you didn't need to pay for the 80-95% water in you regular liquid shampoo or conditioner but even more so was the ability to choose plastic free. As every plastic item will continue to exist and Jen loved having the option to choose to not consume plastic which is not always an option given often.
Jen inspired The Curl Witch to create Lusid and she worked with her from the businesses infancy to develop the brand. This year Tash decided to go back to her roots and focus on her curly hair salon.
Making gifts for your loved ones
Another great last minute gift idea is to use your creativity to gift something that you have made at home. For those that are artistic could make a piece of art, jewellery or if your are not crafty you can easily make up a gift basket of items that you know your giftee will love.
Baking is another great option as cookies, fudge and truffles are great options to put it gift boxes. If baking is not your thing you could go buy some unique moulds and melt chocolate into them.
We hope you have found some inspiration from these ideas. Hopefully you are well organised and have no need for last minute gifts. This season it's really about the gifts, it about spending time with the ones you love.
Wishing you and your loved one, happy holidays this season.
