Well hellOOO there! Happy Friday!
I shared that Snapshots of Wellness would be back in action for the month of August and here we are on the eve of the last official month of summer. This summer is an amazing 'blink' so, let's enjoy every ounce of outdoor activity that we can Chicago!
So, if you follow me on IG @snapshotsofwellness, you know that I have been hailing this company, 'Simple Mills'. I cannot wait to share their back story next week.. I get incredibly passionate about specific companies whose cornerstone is ethical, sustainable and health mindedness. You all know this......or at least you will if you keep coming back to SW.
I think it's important to know that 'all' of my product reviews are not paid or endorsed by the particular company. I actually approach product reviews quite a bit differently then most of the blogging world. I seek out the companies 90% of the time. I have companies seeking me but, easily over 90% of the time, I approach them. I study a company extensively from their product ingredients, manufacturing process, marketing techniques, etc. I get to know the staff/team & creator - I taste/try the product for weeks- sometimes - months- on end........all before I would ever support & consider sharing them on SW.
In sharing this, what do I want to convey to all of you? I want to convey that I test the waters first to ensure the most healthy organic products coupled with integrity & authenticity. I also want you to know that every single company, idea, product, etc. shared on SW is shared w/ a heart of fierce passion. You actually won't see too many product reviews on my site but when you do, know you have a bit of knowledge as to how I chose them.
I would never (ever) recommend anything at all that I don’t personally love and use, and think worthy of your time to consider for yourself. My hope is that SW is a wellness resource that you can trust in.
Enjoy the weekend ahead. By the way, I appreciate all of the community support in raising awareness for Beagle Freedom Project. The organization is absolutely incredible. And sometimes people think 'I don't have money to donate' but giving $3,00 is a contribution - it's something and every dollar counts. So, check out all of the great work they are doing & if you feel moved, donate!
If you are in Chicago this weekend, music will be heard throughout the whole city w/ Lollapalooza kicking off today! Enjoy the liveliness that our gigantic summer playground of a city has to offer!
