#Giveaway – Experience Kumari Luxury

Kumari Luxury and Social an Style Skincare 35000

//Giveaway with Kumari Luxury//

During the last few months, I’ve learned the importance of taking time to be still. I often find myself running from one thing to the other and feel like I am skimming through life. While I am truly thankful for the opportunities to pursue my passions, I’m learning that to move forward you have to be content with where you are. When I learned about Kumari Luxury, the company’s mission resonated with me. Kumari’s philosophy is more than the pure, organic, natural ingredients that they use. It’s a return to that peaceful place that our modern lifestyles often cause us to forget. Each creation is an experience for the mind as much as a (re)treat for the body.

#MadeInDC – Dinner with scratchDC

scratchdc

Cooking is one of my favorite things to do. I love deciding what to cook, putting together a menu, and preparing the dishes. With work, family, friends, and blogging, I often find myself short on time to prepare each meal from scratch. While I prefer home cooked food to eating out or prepackaged food, lately I’ve found myself cooking less. Thankfully the team from scratchDC has made cooking easy! Whether you are cooking for one or two (hello date night!), you can select your dinner box, customize to your dietary needs, and have the package delivered by the time you get home from work. The fresh pre-measured ingredients, easy to follow instructions, and delicious taste has got me hooked! If you live in DC, you will receive $5 off your dinner kit for two ($22-28) with code Social and Style! Checkout my review below.

#MadeInDC – Mischo Beauty – Luxury Nail Lacquers

903

After the success of the #PowerWomen – Rhythmaya article, I received many requests to continue featuring local and small businesses. Starting with my own neighborhood, I’m excited to launch the #MadeInDC series! When I first heard about about Mischo Luxury Nail Lacquers on Daily Candy, Refinery 29, and Elle, I loved the bold colors and sleek bottle design. When I heard that Mischo is 5 FREE: free of formaldehyde, DBP, toluene, formaldehyde resin, and camphor, I knew this polish was for me. I prefer natural and organic products and Mischo Beauty’s mission resonates with my beauty philosophy. Mischo Luxury Nail Lacquers are made from a long-lasting, smooth, chip-resistant formula in the latest colors. The fact that they are toxin-free, cruelty-free, and, of course, 5 FREE makes them a must-have for anyone who loves beautiful, natural products that give back to the community.

#PowerWomen Nirathi and Sheila from Rhythmaya

100

Every week I receive suggestions from readers on women to feature for the #PowerWomen series on Social and Style. Many of you request that I feature local entrepreneurs and small business owners. Thankfully, I didn’t have to look too far to find inspiration. Nirathi Rao Kalavapudi and Sheila Oak Maggin run DC’s most sought after dance company – Rhythmaya. These ladies teach classes, run a performance troupe, and created the first prenatal workout inspired by Bollywood, Bollywood Bellies! Sheila is one of my best friends and a true power woman. With a full-time job and soon-to-be mommy, Sheila handles the pressures and dedication of running a dance company with ease. Nirathi is one of the most dynamic women I know. With two young girls and a third on the way, Nirathi’s passion for dance and the arts comes through in how she runs Rhythmaya, teaches classes, and performs. Learn more about the first #PowerWomen duo featured on Social and Style!
