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:
You may have seen Lauryn wearing these earrings in Cabo. So chic and classic.
Fine jewelry you can wear every day. Lauryn has these pearl dangle hoops and highly recommends.
♡ Le Prunier | @leprunier
♡ 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.
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.
♡ 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 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.
We had to mention TSC, duh. Our whole team is obsessed with everything & you know we all use our planners to the max.
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.
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.
Cutest candles, so chic. Lauryn just posted these on her IG. We love a clean, white, non-toxic candle situation.
Healthy cookie dough. Do we need to say more? Obviously we love Lauryn’s Buttercream Sugar Cookie.
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.
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.
Super cool mugs, saucers and plates. Lauryn is obsessed with her green ones.
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.
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.
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”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.
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.
