As a blogger, I get a fair amount of PR emails. Some of them represent a company looking for bloggers to review their products; some of them are press releases; some of them are how-to's for recent red carpet events that I can write about on the blog if I want to. Some of them are interesting, some of them have turned into reviews on the blog, and 98% of them are irrelevant.
Last year, I got one of these emails and, unlike most of the others, it immediately grabbed me. Malinda at Worth Co. Studio, an LA-base bath & body company, contacted me about a project they were working on and asked if I wanted to be involved. It's called the #myworthmovement, and they wanted me to the answer this question: How do I remind myself of my worth?
This was a different question from what I was used to getting from these PR emails. Malinda told me a little bit about the company, and I instantly fell in love. I'll use her words, because I couldn't explain it better myself:
"Our mission is simply to celebrate the worth of every woman, one product at a time. In addition to products that nourish the skin is special packaging that fuels the soul. Filled with messages that promote a positive self-image, every single item serves as a daily reminder that we each are original, uniquely gifted, and purposed to make an indelible mark on those around us."
If you've been with me for a while, you know that self-love and a positive self-image are incredibly important to me and something I've been on a journey to find for a few years now, with some success and, naturally, some setbacks. I think that believing in your own worth is the key to a happy life and also one of the biggest struggles among people today. So I am whole-heartedly on board with Worth Co. Studio and the #myworthmovement.
They got the project running early this year; you can see my answer here, or you can browse others' answers. I love the inspiration that comes from pages and pages of positive self-image. Follow them on Instagram to get a little love-boost in your feed (we all need it!).
And the products?
They're sooooo great. They all smell flipping fantastic (which is what we all want in bath & body products, right?). I adore the lip scrub! It's the only thing that keeps my lips smooth and flake-free. Shop the line here — you won't regret it. And while you're at it, check out their Brand Besties! I'm honored to be included among a group of like-minded women who support positive self-worth in addition to being addicted to beauty products. :)
Worth Co. Studio, you have my heart! I will forever support you & your mission among women. Companies like you are so important. Also, you're an incredibly sweet group of people. Get used to seeing a lot more Worth Co. products on A Greater Gorgeous!
