Favorite Gifts For HimAren’t men always the trickiest to shop for? When it comes around to the holiday season especially, I feel a bit hesitant with choosing what to gift. After all, we all want to give a gift that won’t just be set aside to collect dust! I’ve found the best pieces to be unique, one-of-a-kind vintage finds, and then sharing smaller, more affordable but ultra useful gifts he can use day-to-day to be the best. PLANT APOTHECARY'S START HAPPY BODY WASH Yes, giving the gift of body wash may sound a little silly - but it makes a great stocking stuffer! And I’m telling you, he’ll appreciate something he can use in his daily routine. This wash has a great uplifting scent from real organic essential oils of geranium and peppermint, which I love, and the quality of this wash shows in the ingredients. It’s even gentle enough for men with sensitive skin. PLANT APOTHECARY'S SUPER SOAK HEALING BATH Who said men can’t enjoy a healing bath too?!! This "super soak" formula is actually created for the ultimate healing bath. It's thoughtfully crafted with soothing ingredients like purifying sea salt, organic mustard, and organic eucalyptus essential oils. Perfect for his long day after the office! All-organic, & no harmful chemicals added that you would see in most bath products. Read more
Best Products For Glowing Skin This SeasonIn all honesty, it’s hard to maintain our skin in a healthy state 24/7. Let alone resembling a glowing angel. There are many factors that can play into one’s appearance. A photograph in a magazine may feature someone with clearly beautiful, radiant skin, but the truth of the matter is that there is much more going behind the scenes. Aside from photoshop tweaking & editing, there is diet and disciplined movement (getting that sweat on!) that play a role in one’s complexion. Now, there are some that just have crazy genes, and can eat whatever they want without having to worry over a blemish, or dullness, but that is less common and let’s not dwell on that or get jealous! These are my current must-haves for your best glowing skin yet, this season... GLOW FLOW CHEFS ENERGIZING MATCHA LATTE Even with the chillier weather among us now, I’m staying consistent with my smoothies and juices, everyday. Keeping with a diet that’s high in dark leafy greens and glow-inducing fruit is major. Another beverage I like to drink and have seen benefits with is matcha. Yes, this antioxidant-rich tea is so yummy in the mornings with almond milk & agave nectar. I’ve been drinking this unique blend by The Glow Chefs, which besides matcha (the finest), consists of reishi mushroom, lion's mane mushroom, Ashwagandha Root and more healing ingredients. INSTANATURAL'S GLYCOLIC ACID SERUM Now to true topical skincare products, this serum is incredible for exfoliation. You can feel it at work as it tingles, sinking into the skin immediately after it’s applied. I use this about 2-3x a week, cutting back to about once a week as the chillier air picks up and increases potential for dryness on my skin. Read more

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your journey.
Hi, I'm Claire Wasserman and I'm the founder of Ladies Get Paid a global community and platform that gives women the resources and support to advance professionally and financially. I also have a book coming out on January 12, 2021!
I started my career as an independent film producer in Bosnia. There was a guy I'd met in college who was writing a film and I said, What the heck let's just go for it and we actually ended up being nominated for a student Academy Award. But my concern was that making a film takes a very long time. It's also an financially unstable path. I looked back at my high school experience my college experience and I realized that something that I was extremely good at that I really enjoyed was making projects happen, primarily through raising money.

How did 'Hey Moon' begin?
I had been making ceramics for about 5 years and had a lot of vessels kind of piling up. I bought a starter candle making kit and made a few candles in the vessels I had. Then a good friend (who owns Little Sister salon here in Austin) asked me if I would consider making candles to sell in her shop. That was maybe 5 years ago? I’ve lost track of time!
Was creating heavenly-scented candles always in the cards for you?
It’s been a long road to where I am now. I never, ever thought I would be a candle maker!
At a glance, what does the process of bringing to life one of these look like?
It’s a lengthy process! Every vessel I make I throw on the potter’s wheel. Then I trim off the excess clay, dry, kiln fire, glaze, fire again, then pour the candle. After that, the candle needs to cure for about 2 weeks.
What kinds of scents are currently on the roster?
I’m always experimenting and changing the scent line up. I personally tend to go for really earthy and woody scents so many are in that family (Mesa, Tarot Den, Palo Santo, Wildwood). I also love florals (Dark Rose, Fields, Vetiver), and slightly unexpected fruity scents (Fig Harvest, Pomelo, Bergamot). Read more
Hey gal! Tell us a little bit about you.
Hey hey, my name is Zohara. I am half Israeli Moroccan and half Jamaican British. I grew up on the island of Bali, Indonesia my whole life, now for the past 3 years I have been living in New York City.
I am a full time model, and the daughter of a photographer and a musician. Because of this I have always been in a creative environment which has now inspired me to create my own clothing line - make sure to stay tuned on my instagram! :) @zohara_even
What does confidence mean to you in this day & age?
To me to be confident is to feel completely strong and comfortable with myself, both mentally and physically. It means allowing myself to be happy with the decisions that I make and not feeling vulnerable to external judgements. Having a good support system of friends and family is so important to boost my confidence level, and I am beyond grateful for that.
How do you face obstacles or personal challenges with grace?
When I am faced with a challenge my first reaction is often to overthink the situation. Recently I’ve learned to take a step back and look at the bigger picture, while I still analyze all my options and outcomes I've learned to give myself some more breathing space and acknowledge that personal growth also comes out of challenges that come my way.

When did you both first cross paths?!
We actually met the old fashioned way, at a mutual friend's birthday party back in 2010. Bret had had a few too many to drink so skipped the awkward introductory step and from this night on we were inseparable.
How do you work collectively on the content you create?
We don't! Kidding, we work pretty well together but creating content can get pretty stressful at times and it's hard not to vent your frustration at one another. But whenever this happens one of us will always take it on the chin and make the other laugh about something silly! Bret does all our editing and is best with a camera, whilst Evey prepares our captions and is better on that front.
What is your "mission" with your major platform?
Our mission when we set out was to travel and experience life without being tied down too much. However we had been doing just that for quite a while before Covid-19 came around, and since then we've been rethinking our approach. Bret has started a Personal Finance youtube channel (Bret Clay) and we plan to apply more travel money advice/tips into our instagram too. We want to teach people how to be financially independent and show what life can be like if you're committed to working hard. Read more

LOVVEEE following you both on your journey on the 'gram. Tell us your story...
Tyler: We started traveling together in 2015 to Australia & New Zealand and lived there for nearly two years. This was of course instead of University or Dance school. In late 2016 that’s where @thetwobohemians was created. A way to show our friends and family what we were up to without having to get on the phone daily. We took a cerbatical from the page until 2018 where we did a few adventures in Europe and decided to pick up the camera again, during our SE Asia trip 2019 was where the brand actually grew from a fun page to a fully fledged business and thus thetwobohemians was born. We did a few cycles of work in retail & hospitiality for a few months, then travel for 6 months before we found our footing into the social media world and made it something we could do together. Its been a crazy journey but in the 9 years of dating we’ve both turned vegan, traveled to 21 different places together, created another business, lived in 3 different parts of the globe, bought a Van and now travel fulltime and make an income of 6 figures doing what we love.

Hello love! Tell us a little about yourself.
Hey there! My name is Esther Lee and I go back and forth between Seattle and Los Angeles. I'm a visionary and like to bring my own perception of people, things, and places together to bring emotion and beauty into reality. I capture products and make them into a visual story for marketing as my job.
When did your creative passion for photography begin for you?
I’ve always had a passion for art but discovered a new interest in photography during college. My dad used to collect photographs when I was younger so it was very nostalgic for me. Photography was a creative way for me to express my emotions. I enjoyed collecting images of life events and my hobbies. I developed my personal style after 2 years and realized I wanted to bring joy out of photos in a minimal way. Read more
Hello love! Tell us a bit about your story.
Hi! My name is Sofia and I run a skin- and acne positivity page on Instagram. I am 25 years old and I currently live in Gothenburg, Sweden. I created my page when I was due to start an oral prescribed medication to treat my severe persistent acne. I have dealt adult acne back and forth in various degrees of severity from my early 20's. But it wasn't until I decided to start my page that I felt like my skin condition affected my quality of life in a really debilitating way. Starting my page in 2018 was really an act out of sheer desperation, by that point my acne affected my mental, social and physical wellbeing in such a negative way that I felt like I needed an outlet to cope. Of course, one purpose of the page was to document my process with the medication by taking pictures of my skin and keeping track of various side effects. But more importantly my page was a way for me to connect with people online that, much like me, had dealt with the difficulties that follows living with a visible skin condition. Read more
