With that hair (and those bright red lips), could you blame us for checking out Millana Snow? The Serene Social founder told us that her big curly hairdo was actually impromptu. “I had my hair straight until yesterday, but then decided to go natural,” she said.
Snow recently discovered Every Strand hair care products, and she is a fan of their deep conditioning hair oil. She added, “It’s at a decent price point, too!” Organic beauty products that make up her regimen include EvanHealy Cleanser and Facial Serum and Pangea Organics Mist. But Snow claims that “the secret to it all” is lemons.
“Drink it in the morning. [Take] hot water (as if you were making a tea) and squeeze in half a lemon. It’s great for your digestive system and your energy. You can also use lemon juice on your skin to tone and brighten.” The health and beauty benefits of this sour yellow fruit just keep getting sweeter!

I had the pleasure of trying some delicious vegan goodies from Jenné of The Nourishing Vegan, the morning of our first NYFW Rooftop Yoga with SATYA Jewelry this past September. Even before I got to meet the beautiful chef herself, I was raving about all of the delicious delights that were 100% GUILT FREE! I have long fantasized about what a vegan lifestyle might look like for me and after meeting Jenné I was even more interested. I am pescatarian… so in my mind I thought, hey I’m not far from vegan right?! WRONG… after taking Jenné’s VEGAN Autumn Immunity Cooking Class + Workshop I realized that I am far from being vegan… I learned that I could eat more veggies and healthy food in general and found that its actually a lot easier than I thought!
Jenné and Jovanka (jovankaciares.com) taught the class how to cook everything from a yummy smoothie, shiitake miso soup, black bean crust and butternut squash pizza to yummy chocolate pudding! But new vegan recipes weren’t all that I learned, I also discovered that ground hemp seeds pack TONS of protein and that miso is full of great bacteria and that you should never put it into boiling water in order to keep all the good stuff alive!
I would highly recommend The Nourishing Vegan’s next Holiday Vegan Cooking Class coming up on November 2nd. I’m planning on going and although I’m not (yet) a vegan… I definitely want to know how to cook even more healthy vegan dishes on a holiday that is certainly lacking in that department!

Creating SERENE Social w/ the Power of Intention
I have admired sex and relationships guru Dr. Jane Greer for some time now… so when she asked me to be a guest on her radio show I was REALLY excited! I was so inspired by her message, we were totally on the same wavelength of setting intentions and the power of thought! I started SERENE with the intention to “Have a business that is profitable, and one that I am truly proud of.” I wanted to start a business to make money…. BUT being “truly proud of my business” meant that it was ethical and positively impacted others. Listen to the interview to hear more about how SERENE started with an intention just over a year ago!
Lately I have really taken steps to green my beauty routine and I am so glad that I can help get the word out about the amazing products out there that are not only great to use but are good for your health, animals and the planet!! Check out some of my beauty product picks on one of my fave blogs: WELL + GOOD!
