Tell us about yourself:
It is so important for us each to love and feel confident in our own skin, which is why I started the Olive Natural Beauty movement. If its true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, how can you see the world of beauty around you without feeling beautiful yourself?
The movement first began before I could walk. Growing up with an Italian mother, I learned from a young age how beneficial and important olive oil is for the health of your skin and your body. Not only was olive oil the staple ingredient in everything we cooked, but my grandmother would regularly use it as a skin moisturizer. I had found my perfect skin care ingredient and in 2009 created Olive Natural Beauty to make this amazing Mediterranean tried-and-true skin care secret available to everyone so we all can naturally love the skin we are in!
As manager of C.O. Bigelow Apothecary in Boston, Massachusetts (and after graduating summa cum laude from Emerson College with a Marketing degree to boot) I found myself disappointed by the use of synthetics and preservatives in products with high price tags. I realized that I wanted to create something entirely natural and effective that I would not only use myself but could also afford. Using the tremendous benefits of honest and natural skin care ingredients as my inspiration, I turned my kitchen into one big scientific beauty laboratory, experimenting and eventually perfecting my own extra virgin olive oil formulas that that I love and trust enough for my own skin. I founded Olive Natural Beauty with the mission to help everyone simply love the skin they are in.
I believe that great attitude and happiness start with great skin. In my life I have always found inspiration in the beauty of a healthy body and mind, and with Olive Natural Beauty, I wanted this to be our founding principle: to share the inspiration of beauty with others and to SAVE OUR SKIN!
If you were a piece of clothing, what would be and what color/pattern?
A pair of golden yellow, suede wedges! I LOVE accessories. Especially if they are big and brightly colored. Spunky golden yellow helps me feel like I am shining, and plus, who doesn’t love a great pair of shoes?
What inspires you?
I have always been inspired by the beauty of a confident and creative mind. Not only am I creatively inspired on a daily basis at ONB, but through my passion as a music lover, musician and songwriter as well. Music can communicate what words alone
cannot, and I use my guitar, piano, and voice to do just that.
Can you give us a preview of what you will be demonstrating on Friday night?
