An older gentleman walks up to my booth and asks me "What's the cause?". I say "In brief, we employ the world's most vulnerable women." He nods. I can tell he's curious but hesitates to ask any more questions. Perhaps he worries he's "being a bother" or maybe he questions if he's too far out of the loop on things. Maybe he thinks because he's a man, I'm not interested in talking to him any longer. I decide to continue the conversation (after all, it's one of my favorite things about TLB!). I say "For example, these clothes were made by women in Nepal who are overcoming sex trafficking." His eyes light up. "Nepal?! Really?! It is bad there?" I told him "Yes, it is. Even though Nepal is a small country, it boarders China and India and is used as a big route for traffickers--partly because the boarders are open." He thinks on this a little bit. Then he says "I guess it's growing everywhere. I knew it was big in Thailand, but I had no idea about Nepal". He looks over the clothes and tells me "my wife won't let me buy her anything. She says I have bad taste." He smiled and thanked me for the information and told me to keep up the good work. Education is one of my favorite things I get to do with The Lemonade Boutique. Even if the conversation doesn't end in a sale, I'm happy to tell our artisans stories and educate people on some of the issues we care about. What questions do you have about the issues and what we do?
Bonus fun question! Do you think your spouse has a good sense of style? 😅
Got to see lots of neat things today and I was able to find some new skulls for my collection after work!

I have always had bags under my eyes, even when I was a little kid. 😆
It’s definitely the worst when I wake up in the morning, but incorporating these natural products into my routine has totally helped a ton!
Here are my favorite products:
@doterra anti-aging eye cream and roller combo. Roller combo contains yarrow, cypress, and frankincense essential oils. Do 10 drops of each in a roller and dilute if desired or just use neat. I use it neat because the pomegranate oil in the yarrow helps dilute it, and I use with other eye cream which helps dilute it also. 😄
I also love @cocokindskincare my matcha stick! The caffeine and anti-oxidants in green tea help a ton with puffiness and dark circles. And the base is coconut oil which is super hydrating. Bonus is that the matcha stick is very budget friendly! 😆
I use the matcha stick in the mornings, along with the yarrow/frank/cypress roller, and the @doterra hydrating cream at night, along with the roller again. 😊
I basically just do a swipe of the roller before the matcha stick or hydrating cream. A tiny bit works like a charm. 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
Anyone else use these products? If not, let me know if you plan on trying any or all of them! 😃
Condoms are made from latex which comes from plants and therefor is a natural material which is AMAZING.
However, most supermarket condoms are covered in toxins and come in plastic packaging. They also contain casein which is derived from cows milk
These JONNY. condoms are on a mission to make a difference:
They promote sexual equality
They come with a compostable pouch
They are non-toxic
They promote giving back to the planet
+ safe sex is cool!
