Nothing signals the beginning of summertime like white denim!  This orGLAMic addition to any wardrobe can be easily taken from day to night with some accessories and heels.  Sharka Chakra is the first denim line to offer white jeans that are made with organic cotton and no bleach.  They bleach their denim the good ol’ fashioned way – with sunshine!  Buy the straight cigarette sunbaked white, pictured above, or other orGLAMic organic denim here.

While shopping for little Evan, the newest addition to my orGLAMic extended family, I came across Little Twig bath products.  This reasonably priced line of bath care includes shampoo, baby wash, baby oil, baby powder, and much more.  All their products are made with organic and botanical ingredients that you can actually pronounce!  They also support recycling, by offering a 30% off your next purchase when returning empty bottles to the company.  If that isn’t enough incentive, you should hurry up and click here, because 20% of online profits are being donated to Los Angeles House of Ruth.  Tres orGLAMic!

Always on the lookout for vegan-friendly shoe options, I was thrilled to come across Mink.  While the market has been expanding (check out orGLAMic’s previous post on Natalie Portman’s line for Te Casan) this orGLAMic girl has had a hard time finding leather-free shoes that I love.  Call me crazy, but it’s either flip-flops or stilletos for me and finally MINK has some orGLAMic options for both.



MINK shoes are custom designed and hand crafted from only the finest quality non-animal products. Natural or scientifically engineered alternatives such as cork, denim, linen, faux fur, and other animal friendly substitutes are employed – while leather, suede, pelts, and skins are never used. To check out the line of limited edition MINK shoes, click here.

This Memorial Day weekend, be sure to slather yourself in a sunscreen that is for good for the environment and your body.  orGLAMic likes Alba Botanicals mineral sunscreens because they are reasonably priced, come in a fragrance-free variety, and can be bought at most healthfood stores as well as some mainstream pharmacies.  Developed with an advanced delivery system of natural emollients and botanical antioxidants, these sunscreens help protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun with titanium dioxide – a broad spectrum, UVA & UVB, reflective barrier.  While Alba is not completely organic, the company is dedicated to reducing their carbon footprint through using 100% solar powered energy, recycling, and other endeavors.  To check out the orGLAMic offerings of Alba Botanica, click here.

Memorial Day celebrations aren’t complete without a little brewsky if you ask me.  How to be orGLAMic and have a blast?  Try to buy local, organic beer this summer!

Eel River Brewing Company is America’s first certified organic brewing company and with everything from stout to pale ale, there is something for everybody.  In addition to being organic, all the power used to brew the beer in is produced from mill leftovers such as wood chips, bark, scrap lumber and clippings.  And to top it off, their motto is “Be natural; drink naked.”  Genius! 

Leave a comment below and tell us what your drink of choice is going to be this Memorial Day weekend…
