Holiday Season: 7 Bohemians Must Haves

When Tiny Devotions asked me to blog about this topic, I immediately knew what my top choices were be and what I’m gifting my friends for the holidays. Being the free-spirited, Bohemian flower-crown wearing woman that I am, I’m all about sharing my favorites. I won’t recommend something that I haven’t tried or absolutely love.

I have been blogging at beautybybritanie.com for the past two and a half years. I test and review the top industry brands in natural and organic beauty, health, skin care, jewelry, and fashion so it’s an understatement when I say, “I know what I like!”

I encourage people to live with an open heart and do all things with passion and a positive attitude. When making decisions on what to purchase, and from whom, I advocate for and support the companies and brands that promote wellness and are in business because they want to make a significant positive difference in the world. Some of the absolute “must haves” for the Holidays are free: kindness, love, sharing and time spent with loved ones. Most importantly, remember that true organic beauty is always created and nurtured from the inside out.

Here are my 7 favorite “Must Haves” for every Bohemian:

Tiny Devotions: The Balance Stack.tiny-devotions-mala-beads
I adore wearing my balance bracelet stack. To me, balance is an absolute “must have”. I work daily to be equally centred in all the different areas of my life: body, mind, and soul. I meditate, practice yoga, and use positive affirmations as tools to achieve my goals. When I look at this bracelet throughout the day my favorite affirmation that I repeat to myself is: ‘I create harmony in my life by maintaining a balanced lifestyle.’ Aventurine, Rosewood, Clear Quartz, Sandalwood, and African Jade all work synergistically to promote and enhance harmony in my life.

Kahina Giving Beauty: Argan Oil.
This is a must have skincare choice for me. I use a few drops on my face every single day. The quality and efficacy of this brand is unparalleled. I love that Kahina Giving Beauty works only with cooperatives in Morocco that pay a fair wage to women. This also ensures that the highest quality nuts go into their superior organic oil. I have sensitive skin and this particular Argan oil is superb. I gently press a few drops of this precious antioxidant-rich oil into my skin before I apply my mineral makeup.

Synergy Organic Clothing: Helena Long Sleeve Bamboo Dress in Snowberry.
This is the absolute perfect Boho Holiday “little red dress”. I love this color, but more importantly I love how comfortable and flattering bamboo, cotton, and lycra fabric is. All the pieces I own from Synergy are the absolute epitome of luxury. I only purchase from companies that I’m a huge fan of. I love Synergy Organic Clothing because they are mindful & conscious in every facet of the way they do business. Their clothing is sustainable and organic fair trade. When the holidays are over, this dress is perfect for a date night. Just add a scarf, leggings, lots of bracelets and your favorite jean jacket.

Nudus Organic Lipstick in “Revenge”.
This is THE color for the holidays! It’s the perfect red and is an absolute showstopper. Nudus is my favorite brand for beautifully pigmented (with ancient Ayurvedic bioactive color extracts) highest quality lipstick. I love that they’re handcrafted and made in Australia with 27 active natural ingredients for soft hydrated lips. The colors and formulation, are COSMOS Certified Organic.

AILA Cosmetics: Nail polish in “Like A Boss”.
This is a sassy rose-gold color perfect for a holiday manicure. It’s festive and classy at the same time. When I switched over to all natural & organic beauty a few years ago, the one product missing was a USA made quality nail polish that was 5-free, chip resistant, and made without parabens. This company is also cruelty free, vegan and has gorgeous colors. Once I found AILA I’ve never looked back.

 tiny-devotions-scarfTiny Devotions: Hipster Scarf.
Wrap yourselves in scarves, but never hide is a part of the Tiny Devotions Manifesto, which I whole-heartedly adhere to. Hipsters are counter-culture, have an appreciation for art, indie-rock, creativity, intelligence and witty banter. I’m continually striving to be an honest person and walk my talk. I don’t ever want to hide. I’m proud of who I am and I accept all my quirks and myself. I love that I’m not perfect and I think striving for perfection is a waste of time. I’d rather be an imperfect freethinking boho hipster. This scarf reminds me to “lighten up” my expectations.

Free People: Embellished Matador Hat.
Every Boho girl that’s into fashion needs a favorite hat. I think this particular style is flattering on everyone. It’s a wool brimmed outlaw hat with a metal plate embellished band. I wear this with everything.
