Good morning, loves. I have a little update for you on a new development in my life. I recently took a marketing position at The Glow Lounge! Remember when I wrote about them back in July? I’ve been getting spray tans from them for about a year now. My lil love story with GL started when I decided I was over being fair-skinned for a while. Nothing against a good fair-skinned complexion, I just wanted to try something different! A healthy looking glow that didn’t require lots of unhealthy UV ray exposure or unnatural orangeness. So I gave Glow a try, kept it going all summer, and lovvveed it. J’adore.
I literally look forward to going to work and I think I know why… I believe in the company. The vision. The heart. The people- our guests who are so fun to meet and talk to and then all of the beauties on the Glow team. Plus um hi the service. It’s really unique to the area!
I hope you know this but you guys, remember… I save my gush-sessions for things I really believe in. I get a lot of inquiries about products and partnerships but am extremely selective of the ones I choose to work with because it is SO SO important to me to be able to come to you with genuine recommendations.
The founder, Mollie, is a total gem. Her red hair is like maybe the hottest thing I’ve ever seen. BABE. And I work a lot with Krin who makes me laugh on the reg. She and I have the most professional chemistry ever, finishing each other’s sentences and totally jiving with direction and vision. I FEEL SO LUCKY TO HAVE FOUND THIS YOU GUYS.
We think about tans as not just another pretty-ifying service but a healthy and smart option to get that natural tan that gives you a little extra confidence. There are a million things I’m obsessed with about this place but I’ll keep it concise… er. The spray tan formula is totally custom, and so is the way it’s applied. It’s actually airbrushed on so it’s tailored to you. But one of my biggest yay’s about this place is that it’s healthy healthy healthy for the skin. Bye sun damage and hi smooth, youthful skin. It’s a totally organic solution that is not infusing mysterious chemicals and toxins into your body. We’re all about being nice to our bodies and skin.
True to our mission with growing confidence, spreading holistic health vibes, we are doing a huge focus on that in our Instagram and social pages this April! It’s Health + Wellness month and we’ve rounded up some amazing smoothie recipes and will be talking about clean eating meal plans, and sharing recs of local green beauty products. We love getting to know our neighbors and partnering with local shops, makers, and creatives. So we’ll be spreading the love on all of our nice-to-your-bod favorites around town.
And my FAV: Snapchat!! Add us at “TheGlowLounge” username.
I hope you find as much joy in what you do, now or down the road. If you do or ever have, I bet this post resonates with you. You know what a treat it is to be part of something bigger that you believe in and get excited about 🙂 I’m still just like overwhelmed in a good way at what a great fit this is for me. Gahhh!
