5 Minnesota Brands that I Love!

May 6

1.) Arch Addicts 

Born in Eden Prairie, Minnesota by 3 Girl Bosses.  Niki Robison is who I trust my eyebrows to.  They recently launched their own brand, Arch Addicts.  

The Arch Addicts product line is inspired by a desire to create exquisite brows that enhance the natural beauty and balance of the face. Fueled by the opportunity to create a look that is feminine, modern, vibrant, and youthful. Devoted to an addiction for designing the perfect arch.

2.) dpHUE

It's safe to say, when I find a brand I love, I stick with it!  I started with the Oil Therapy. I have really thick, corse, dry hair.  I love how this oil makes my hair feel.  Plus, it smells amazing!!   I started getting my roots colored at the Edina location last year.  Game changer!  Before I was going to 2 different salons, one for a cut, one for my color.  Add this to my waxing appointment and everything else, it was just too much.  Besides the fact that they matched my hair color perfectly, you do NOT need an appointment!  As a working mom, this is huge!  Recently I have been brave enough to try the at home root touch up.  I am a huge fan but there is just something about being pampered at the salon.  Am I right?  

Third product that I use is the ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse).  Celebs are dying over this one!  Benefits: Gently removes impurities from hair.  Infused with argan oil, fire tulip, lavender extract, aloe vera and more.  Incredible color locking technology.  Protects from heat styling and breakage

3.) Tempest Goods 

I absolutely love candles!  I have an entire shelf in my linen closet with candles.  They are lit every day throughout the house.  Lucky me, Tempest Goods sent me a few samples.  My favorite is the Eucalyptus & Peppermint.    For a soy candle, they are priced really well too!!!  Check them out here: Tempest Goods 

"Hand poured in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, our small batch candles have been taking the Twin Cities by storm. Each candle is made with 100% natural soy wax and cotton wicks. Most of our candles are infused with natural essential oils as well! At Tempest Goods, we pride ourselves on providing candles that are soot and toxin free, resulting in a clean burn. We are also very proud to be eco-friendly, even down to the label. Each candle is packaged in recycled boxes or gift bags, making it the perfect gift. At Tempest Goods we use the highest quality ingredients, to give you the highest quality candle. Tempest Goods: Products to help you weather your storm." 

4.) Antonina Naturals 

Antonina started her company at the young age of 12.  This alone was so impressive to me.  She knew she didn't;t want to be using toxic chemicals in her own products and didn't want anyone else to be using them either.  Thus, Antonina Naturals was born.  Antonina reached out to me to ask if she could send me her products.  I was blown away by her ambition and obviously said yes.  

5.) Pink Linen Designs 

I realize I had a beauty theme going here.  Maybe I should have stuck with it.  I am super obsessed with Pink Linen Designs.  I mean, look at these products.  I have the arrow in my sons room.  I have purchased other things as gifts.  I want to buy everything from her!  She is in several  of the same stores as my Live & Love MN Collection.  Check her website out for more amazing designs.
