Most people are aware that their skin carries a natural scent - so it’s truly a science to discover exactly which notes in what perfumes will pull out the best characteristics of your own, and blend to create something beautiful and long lasting! Abel has made a science out of doing just that, and has a line of fragrances that evolve to match the chemistry of your skin. Golden Neroli is my favorite spring and summer fragrance (you read more about that here!), but for winter, it is hands down Grey Labdanum. It’s a fresh and frosty scent, with just enough citrus top notes to balance the deeper patchouli heart notes, and labdanum base notes that follow. As it is worn, it evolves from a sharp, clear scent into something smooth and rich. And, since all ingredients within Abel’s fragrances are 100% natural (rather than using harsh and potentially toxic ingredients), it safe to wear Abel all day, every day!

As someone with hair that literally falls down past my waist, it’s safe to assume that I have tried quite a few hair products. After visiting the marketplace and buying a bottle of Missio’s dry shampoo at the 2019 Yellow Conference in LA, it quickly became a necessity. It smells faintly like coconut and keeps your hair fresh, but also gives your hair an amazing lift, which is great for people like me who have hair that lays limp and flat! Not only do all of Missio’s products smell and work amazing, but it’s great to know that a product as basic and necessary as shampoo or conditioner is helping in the fight against human trafficking! This season the Yellow Community gets to enjoy 20% off of a special “make your own bundle” that includes a shampoo, a conditioner, and one styling product of your choice!

Anyone who knows me knows I love a good glass of wine – whether over dinner with friends, to sip on while cooking, or to bring along to any holiday party. Over the years I’ve tried more and more natural wines, and I truly can’t go back. To me, the taste is so much cleaner, smoother, and of course, safer to drink knowing that Dry Farm Wines are all natural, and are free of additives and added sugar. One of their wine boxes would make an absolutely perfect gift for any wine-lover you know.
On your first order, grab an extra bottle of wine for only a penny here!
Today only (12/2), you can order a single wine box at Dry Farm’s classic membership pricing by heading here.
I tend to be picky about many things, but skincare is definitely at the top of the list. After testing out many different brands over the years (and having some scary results along the way), once I find great quality, natural, affordable products that work, you better believe I’m sticking with them. This clay mask by Asarai is natural, fragrance-free, toxin-free, and seriously leaves your face glowing and so soft. I’ve loved adding it into my routine (you only leave it on for about 10 minutes!) and would highly recommend gifting it to someone you love (or yourself!) this season.

The Original Golde blend is what I’m giving to my foodie friends this season. It makes the coziest golden lattes, and has tons of nourishing ingredients that are also great to cook with (turmeric, coconut, ginger, cinnamon, and black pepper to name a few!). I love adding it to chopped up sweet potatoes popped in the oven with coconut oil, smoothies, and so many other dishes – you gotta try it! Golde makes a variety of all natural, superfood-boosted essentials, all of which would make the perfect gift!

Speaking of quality, Parker Clay bags and goods are made to last, and made with purpose by providing sustainable employment for women in Ethiopia. The Caroline Tote, a perfect gift for a wide range of ages and lifestyles, fits all the necessities, with an extra outside pocket and inside zipper that are the icing on the cake. I really value Parker Clay’s transparency (learn more about eco-leather here) and their commitment to social change. Read more about their amazing story in our interview with their founders here.

I believe you can tell a lot about a person by looking at two things - their music choice and their coffee mug ;). If you’re anything like me, the holiday season is defined by constantly clutching a coffee mug throughout 90% of the day. When something that spends that much time in my hands is ethically made by artisans in Bali, it literally makes my day that much better. This 31 Bits mug is just that, and it’s super cute too! Each mug is a little bit different, as they are each hand made one by one. This mug makes a meaningful and special companion to hang out with you – or a loved one – throughout the entire winter season.

Every girl needs a simple black dress. If you haven’t found your staple yet, THIS one will change your life. I wore this dress all throughout my pregnancy, and long after. It’s so simple that it makes it easy to dress up with heels and some red lipstick, or dress down with a messy bun and a pair of sandals. It is beyond soft and oh so comfy. I love this dress so much, I have literally slept in it multiple times. Not to mention, you can feel good wearing it (not just on the outside) because all of ABLE’S products are ethically made! It makes a perfect gift for your friend, sister, or yourself to wear during any season of the year!
