love in action + 25% code

When it comes to the holidays we are all thinking about the people on our Christmas list and what to give them; however, are we thinking about all of those people who are not able to check off their list of even basic needs? I have something you can do to help with your list and the lists of others.

I have raved about this new company many times before [here] and I’m going to do it again! For every evolve- love in action purchase you make, it includes a social giveback to one of their Love In Action Partners. These are non-profit organizations committed to social justice and the quest to end poverty. They are located in Thailand, South Africa and the United States. Each organization demonstrates core values that evolve, as well as Ash and I, stand behind: compassion, empowerment, wholeness, courage and creativity.

So, let’s say you have that running/workout pal who loves herself a good pair of leggings! Grab the Rupa or VaVa leggings or a great capri like the Dawn. If you purchased these you would not only be giving your friend an amazing Christmas gift, but also giving 2 days of school, 3 warm meals, and personal hygiene kits to someone in need! Complete the outfit with the Deb halter or Mryna tank and you’ll be giving a child 1 week to 1 month of school supplies! Let’s not forget a sports bra and give the gift of education to a child!

Then, let’s not forget about the men in our life! Evolve has just launched their new men’s line and I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek before they launched it, when they were here in Dallas. Let’s just say, my super picky husband love the line. Their shirts were so soft I wanted a set of sheets made out of them- and the shorts were finally a length, fit, and style I could get on board with for men’s work out shorts. There will be a couple packages under the tree for my man from this line.

The Mike tee is the incredibly soft, and amazing work out tee. Five minutes after a work out your man won’t even know he was sweating. It’s amazing. Plus, just by purchasing it, it provides 10 years of clean water to someone in need in an under-developed country! Then complete the outfit with the Eric short and you will be giving your man a complete outfit and also providing one hour of job skills training for a homeless youth in the US!

I love the founders behind this company and their passion for their vision. It shows every time I get to talk to and see them.  “Evolve – love in action seeks to empower and inspire those who wear its clothes… to be their best selves and to be a part of something much bigger. Each piece is thoughtfully designed to make you feel beautiful from the inside out.”

So…. you’re sold, right!? Me too. I have been for awhile. Just when you think it can’t get better- they are giving all of our lovely friends 25% off the ENTIRE STORE through December to get your Christmas list checked off and to help better our world!


and please tag us, @juniperlemons,  and evolve, @evolve_loveinaction, in your new gear so we can see the amazing faces behind helping our community!

happy shopping!

more big things (!!!!)

As previewed in an earlier post, there are big things happening around Juniper Lemons and we wanted to share a little update.  Last weekend we met up for a photoshoot to get product pics for the soon-to-be-open Juniper Lemons boutique!


It was a full on family affair with with my sister AJ and mom Carol lending their modeling talents, and AJ’s sister-in-law Danielle working her mad camera skillz.  Fueled by Raising Cane’s chicken fingers and fresh squeezed lemonade we powered through the shoot.

lovely lips

February is the perfect month to celebrate love, and we’re going to start by dressing your kisser in this month’s colors– pink, red, and sparkles!  I dug around my makeup drawer to share my top picks for lovely lips.

From left to right by row: 

  • Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain in No. 7 Corail Aquatique $36.  I bought my first YSL glossy stain a couple years ago, and I’ve gone through a few since.  I’m not a huge fan of the packaging, but the formula is good and there are a ton of color options.
  • Burberry Kisses Lipstick in No. 17 English Rose $33.  As I’ve mentioned before (seesmokey” post), I love Burberry products and this lipstick is no exception.  Be sure to let the product sit on your lips a couple minutes before you judge it.  As it warms it melts into a creamy smooth texture in the most perfect soft rose color.   consistency.
  • Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain in No. 27 Peche Cerra-Cola $36.
  • Tarte LipSurgence lip gloss in Blushing Bride $19.  (Or it comes as part of a cute little “wedding day essentials” set currently on sale for $39, originally $49.)  The gloss is a bit sticky on the sticky side.  I admit, it’s not my favorite texture-wise, but I love the color and dewy shine.
  • Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Honey $24.  Kind of pricey for what is in essence a tinted lip balm, but lovely nonetheless.  The texture is great and they smell ah-mazing!
  • Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer in Color 302 $38.  This was one of my Fall/Winter 2015 purchases, and it quickly became a favorite (see it here on the @juniperlemons Instagram!).  It is a wearable orangey-red color with the slightest hint of gold shimmer and awesome staying power.
  • Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Yu (bright pink) $26.  Bold, bright, statement-making color. Yass!
  • Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Cherry $24.
