A MONTH OF GIVEAWAYS!!! Week 1 – Simply Gorgeous

Welcome, welcome, welcome!  So happy to see you here for week one of our “Month of Giveaways” – yay!!!

I’m super excited to introduce a fabulous business to you today.  Simply Gorgeous is a freshly launched skin care business based in the St. Margaret’s Bay area here in beautiful Nova Scotia.  Emily McDonah is the brains and beauty behind the operation, and I caught up with her recently to talk about what’s been going on in her world.  Hint: it’s about WAY more than selling product!


Read on, and scroll down for a special giveaway at the bottom 🙂


“I launched Simply Gorgeous Bath & Beauty in April and sell all natural, handmade bath and body care products.  Each ingredient in my products is natural and has a purpose; be it cocoa butter for moisture, vitamin e oil for healing, or beeswax for protecting.  You’ll find no fillers, preservatives, or other chemicals on the ingredient list.  I currently offer lotions, lip balms, deodorant, and bath salts and am hoping to offer baby care, cosmetics, and more aromatherapy products in the near future.


Why?  I started making these products for myself and my family after an undetermined culprit had me growing tumors all over at a rate surpassed only by the hair on my legs.  The unknown is scary and immediately had me searching to cut as many environmental factors as I could from my life; and more importantly from the lives of my two little boys.  Before we determined that it was actually a genetic neurological disorder affecting me, we were thoroughly aware of the risks associated with so many of the chemicals we slather on everyday, and immediately committed to steering clear where we could.


I’ve always been passionate about the environment, our place in nature, and “being the change” – so sharing my passion through Simply Gorgeous was a no brainer.  I hope not only to sell my products, but also to help people recognize the importance of being aware, and provide a platform for sharing DIY tips, stories, and ideas.  I also have a personal blog (www.swimminhill.wordpress.com) where I share our life, which includes living off-the-grid, raising two little fellas, and my journey with Schwannomatosis – a rare form of Neurofibromatosis (which I hope to raise awareness for, and am working to set up a registered charity to raise research funds.  You can learn more on the condition at www.ctf.org).


I’m very excited to say, that besides being available locally and on my website (www.simplygorgeousnaturals.ca), Simply Gorgeous products are also available at Coconut Creek Gift Shop in Dartmouth Crossing!



Emily’s products are available through her website at: http://www.simplygorgeousnaturals.ca/

You can also catch up with her on Facebook:   www.facebook.com/simplygorgeousnaturals.ca

And on Twitter: @simply_gorg 



Emily has generously donated a beautiful aromatherapy locket to give away to one lucky reader.  Aren’t they beautiful?  With a retail value of $18, I think these would make fabulous gifts (hello, Christmas presents this year?!)

These lockets are brand new to the Simply Gorgeous line, and are not even for sale yet (hitting shelves next week!)  The scent is “Listea Cubeba,” an Asian flower with a spicy citrus scent.  This scent is said to be great for creating a feeling of calm, strength and is uplifting.  Not a bad thing to hang around your neck!
