7 Denver small businesses to buy from this holiday season

7 denver local businesses to buy from this holiday season

Ugh, you guys, is it Holiday time again ALREADY? Didn’t we JUST do this? I don’t want to seem like a scrooge who hates Christmas or anything, but…I might be a scrooge who hates Christmas. Just kidding, mostly. I mean, it isn’t the actual holiday that I hate, it’s all the stuff leading up to the holiday…like shopping and cleaning and trying to figure out what to get that one person in the family who either already has everything or who hates everything, (y’all know who I mean).

And y’all, I LOVE giving presents. I mean it, I love it. My mother was one of the great present-givers of her generation and I like to think that I inherited at least a little bit of that. She always knew exactly the right gift to give at exactly the right time. She would give me things that I didn’t even know I desperately needed until I received them, (for example: a collection of marble, ceramic and gemstone eggs…that’s right, I said eggs. I am prone to anxiety and holding those little spheres in my hand calms me down like magic, you should try it.)

Anyway, because of my hatred of shopping coupled with my need to give the perfect gift, I an obsessed with Gift Guides. I will read ALL of them to try and find the cleverest you-didn’t-know-you-needed-it-until-I-gave-it-to-you gift. And as we face yet another gift-giving season, I realized that since starting my own business, I have come to know so many cool small business owners who have amazing, sentimental, practical, silly, fun, beautiful things to offer. So I decided to put together the Sweet Georgia Sugar Local Gift Guide for you lovlies to peruse so that you can find that perfect gift for that one person who hates everything. And remember, when you shop from this list, you are helping to support a small business and someone’s dream…and that’s a gift in itself.

Sweet Georgia Sugar profiled in Westword

Y’all! I got interviewed by Denver’s Westword magazine!!

From the article:

After suffering from eczema for most of her life, Sarah Jacobson was tired of getting little or no relief from over-the-counter and prescription options. Taking matters into her own hands, she combined a little research with her own self-taught organic cooking skills and started creating all-natural lotions in her kitchen. The result was astounding — her skin became clear, so much so that coworkers wanted to know what she was doing differently. That’s how Jacobson’s all-natural skincare line Sweet Georgia Sugar was born, and less than a year after it began, Jacobson is seeing big business for her small operation.

Listen, You Need Eye Cream, (Yes, YOU)!

You guys? I’ve started noticing something that disturbs me…I have wrinkles, y’all, like real, live, wrinkly wrinkles…when did this happen? I mean, I know I’m not 20 anymore, but I’m not THAT old, right? First, it was just here and there that I would notice. I’d see a picture and think “Ew”, but would ultimately decide that the photo had just captured me in a “bad light”, as my Mama would say. But then I started noticing more and more “bad light” photos. And the bad light also extended to my mirror, apparently. So, I needed to do something about this, yes? And as you know, I am firmly against the chemical-laden, hormone disrupting, synthetic ingredient containing products that are not only offered, but also practically insisted upon for women in my…ahem…age group. So I did a bunch of research and came up with my own blend of stuff that is so good for your skin, especially that delicate area around your eyes, and that has made an enormous difference in the number of lines I see in the mirror. My eye cream contains only natural, real ingredients, and here is why they work: Continue reading Listen, You Need Eye Cream, (Yes, YOU)!
