Small Business Saturday – The Shops We Love

Small Business Saturday

We know the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale hype is real for big box stores. There are major savings out there. But we wanted to feature small businesses in a blog post today.

They deserve our support and a huge shout out especially with the holidays coming up. Running a small business is a lot of work and not for the faint of heart. Buying from small businesses goes a long, long way in helping the entrepreneurs continue living out their dream. Lauryn knows this as a small business owner too. It’s no joke.

With that, let’s get into some small businesses Lauryn loved this year.

Small Business Saturday – Shops We Love:

House of Olia | @houseofolia

Lauryn is obsessed with the Tumbado necklace and the Ojita anklet.

Electric Picks | @electricpicks

You may have seen Lauryn wearing these earrings in Cabo. So chic and classic.

Set & Stones | @setandstones

We love the Chet ring and the Nora bracelet.

Shop Ange |

Everything is so fab, but Lauryn loves the Violet necklace and Chrissy earrings.

Smith and Mara | @smithandmara

Fine jewelry you can wear every day. Lauryn has these pearl dangle hoops and highly recommends.

Le Prunier | @leprunier

Lauryn is obsessed with the Plum Beauty Oil and Plumscreen.

Nosh | @noshbodyco

Mom & baby approved. Lauryn is in love with all the balms, especially the apricot oat calm balm. ::chef’s kiss::

Quickies | @getquickies

If you wanna skip the manicure and opt for fun, high-quality press ons instead, Quickies are for you.

Three Ships | @threeshipsbeauty

Dew Drops 4eva. Lauryn loves to use these before using her ffacial massager, or under makeup for a dewy glow.

Baked Beauty | @bakedbeautyco

Lauryn loves the headache relief stick and the lavender CBD bath salts.

Tallow Sisters | @tallowsisters

Tallow is all the rage right now. Cook with it, eat it, slather it on your skin and in your hair. This sister duo’s organic skincare line will keep your skin so hydrated and is also good to keep on hand for skin ailments like rashes, sunburns or exzema.

Pellequr | @pellequr

Lauryn loves the lemon drop Zen Pen and this body towel.

K’pure | @kpurenaturals

If you’ve been following Lauryn for a while, you know she always has to have a bottle of Settle Down spray. If you want to know more about why natural personal products are key, stalk this post from the founder, Karen.

The Golden Secrets | @thegoldensecrets

The Aura Beauty Mist is one of Lauryn’s favorites, but Jesse Golden is a master at creating clean, effective products inspired by ancient wisdom and traditions. Stalk her site and fall in love with her unique wellness practices here.

Vrea Cosmetics | @vreacosmetics

Our friend Alexandra Potora (meet her here) has the best eye masks. They’re Lauryn’s go-to lately.

The Skinny Confidential | @theskinnyconfidential

We had to mention TSC, duh. Our whole team is obsessed with everything & you know we all use our planners to the max.

TSC Small Business Saturday

Woo More Play | @woomoreplay

Lauryn loves the coconut Love Oil, Freshies & Vibez xxx. Be sure to try the new Shag Juice too.  It’s a new water-based lube that’ll make bedtime even more fun.

Lux Unfiltered | @luxunfiltered

Sivan Ayla’s line of body care products are an absolute dream. Vegan, paraben free, synthetic fragrance free, like just no nasties at all, the tanning drops and gradual tanning lotion are our faves.

L’objet | @lobjet

Lauryn loves the unicorn octopus letter opener.

♡ Adina Pallone | @adinapallone

The most incredible art you’ll ever see. Adina is so talented and Lauryn fell in love with the pieces she did of Townes and Zaza. DM her for a commissioned portrait you’ll have forever.

♡ Bedazzle Me | @bedazzlemestudio

Custom bling at its finest. April is so good at what she does and it’s so fun to add sparkle to anything your heart desires.

White Label Home | @whitelabelhome

Cutest candles, so chic. Lauryn just posted these on her IG. We love a clean, white, non-toxic candle situation.

Fashionkush | @fashionkush

Lauryn loves the rolling trays. So good for jewelry in your bedroom or bathroom. Lighters are super cute too.

DEUX | @eatdeux

Healthy cookie dough. Do we need to say more? Obviously we love Lauryn’s Buttercream Sugar Cookie.

Bread Srsly | @breadsrsly

Want gluten-free sourdough delivered straight to your door? Well, here you go. Lauryn has been ordering Bread Srsly for years and loves it with a pat of butter and French sea salt.

Peace River Honey | @peaceriverhoney

An organic, family run business with the yummiest honey products local to Alberta, Canada, but don’t worry. They ship to the US and even have lip balm.

♡ Hooch Booch | @drinkhoochbooch

Female-founded hard kombucha crafted from classic cocktails. Check out their espresso martini collab with Generous Coffee. They partnered with a women run farm in Honduras and all profits go to the Womaen’s Global Empowerment Fund.

Canopy | @getcanopy

We love Canopy for their CLEAN diffusers and humidifiers. It was a no brainer for Lauryn to do a co-brand with them. Stalk more about the effective, cute, pink diffuser & humidifier here.

Taja | @tajacollection

Lauryn has been a big fan of Taja forever. She loves to get custom, non-toxic candles for events and gifts. Vanilla bourbon anyone? It’s the best scent. Meet the founder here.

Piano Piano | @pianopiano

Super cool mugs, saucers and plates. Lauryn is obsessed with her green ones.

♡  Olivia Hughes | @avoirlechic

Another incredibly talented artist, this time on Veuve Cliquot bottles! Olivia’s work is just beyond personal and such a fun unique gift, especially for the person who has everything.

Caitlin Jaymes | @caitlinjaymes

If there’s one thing that Lauryn keeps reordering it’s bikini organizer bags by Caitlyn Jaymes. These are so helpful for organizing your drawers at home, and also incredible for travel. Lauryn even has some for Townes and Zaza.

Etsy | @etsy

Sellers on Etsy are beyond talented. Lauryn is obsessed with her sound bowls and her doorbell sign off Etsy. So many good gift ideas too. Don’t sleep on Etsy!

♡ Kit and Sis | @kitandsis

Zaza loves these craft kits. They have so many to choose from, some big, some small, but no matter what you choose it’s sure to keep your kids busy for a while.

Emma Lou | @emmalouthelabel

Emma Lou”s leggings are so unique because they’re debloating. You read that right (more here). Made of a special material out of her own necessity, Emma created one of Lauryn’s favorite pair of leggings.

Waverles | @waverles

Created in honor of her sister, the founder of Waverles creates sustainable, comfortable loungewear for all occasions. Highly recommend the pajamas if you’re planning on a bachelorette gift for your friends.

ANP | @anplosangeles

Elevated, sustainable basics, made with natural materials. Comfy, cozy, chic, you can’t go wrong.

Cover Swim | @coverswim

This swim brand gets it when it comes to SPF suits. They keep you covered and safe from the sun’s rays but are still super chic and sexy.

Brûlé | @shopbrule

Kenzie Burke knows how to do loungewear. From super cool sets, to men’s style boxers, you really can’t go wrong.


We hope these small business recommendations will have you nice and relaxed, draped in jewels and ending your day looking like a drowned rat.

Again, these all make amazing gifts if you’re looking for something special to give.
