The Edit: Elizabeth Dehn, Beauty Bets


Today we are kicking of Beauty Week on TAE! Although I have been conscious of using primarily natural products for several years, I only recently started to think about where my beauty products came from… and why that matters. This week we’ll have some of our favorite beauty bloggers sharing their American made beauty favorites – most of which also happen to be natural – and I’ll be sharing some details as to why it really does matter where your products are made. Check back all week and be sure to share your favorite American made products in the comments!

I couldn’t start this week off with anyone other than Elizabeth Dehn, or Beauty Bets as you may know her. Elizabeth has been my guide to beauty – and the best services and treatments in Minneapolis – for as long as I’ve lived here, and I’m lucky to call her a friend. She is incredibly motivating and inspiring (she blogs, she is an editor for a magazine, AND she has collaborated with TAE favorite One Love Organics on a skincare line!) and her skin seriously glows. GLOWS. If she wasn’t so awesome, I’d be so intimidated by the skin alone.

Thank you, so much Elizabeth, for sharing your favorite American made beauty products!

  1. The founder of Yarok Hair is one of the most humble, hilarious guys in the industry. He also makes THE best sulfate-free, volumizing shamoo I’ve ever used.
  2. Confession: I have a serious packaging crush on Herbivore Botanicals. In fact, everything about this artisan brand makes me squeal inside.
  3. Ilia Beauty made me a natural-makeup believer. The lipstick and lip crayon formulas are unbelievably lush yet pigmented.
  4. I’ve been a Horst devotee my whole life, so his Intelligent Nutrients line holds a special place in my heart. No one can do what he has done with plants.
  5. It’s no secret that I’m a One Love Organics girl through and through. They are pioneers and care so deeply about their customers. There’s no other indie skincare brand I’d rather be collaborating with!

The Edit: Style Eater


It’s always fun to discover new-to-me bloggers… and to have them share their favorite American-made items! Janelle’s blog, The Style Eater, is a gorgeous depiction of her life in one of my very favorite cities. She has incredible taste (and we share a love for holes in our jeans); unsurprisingly, I love all of her picks today! Thanks, Janelle!xx

Unionmade x Baxter of California candle

This is my absolute favorite candle and I burn it in my apartment almost every day. It’s a perfect blend of cedar and sandalwood and smells like campfire.

ABJ Glassworks Pyramid

I store all of my rings in this gorgeously-crafted glass pyramid on my nightstand. I’m dying for one of her terrarium kits next! 

Mociun Black Onyx Triangle Ring

The last time I went to New York, my only requirement for the trip was a visit to the Mociun store in Brooklyn. I am obsessed with Caitlin’s jewelry. 

Tanner Goods camera strap

I’ve used this strap on my dslr camera for a few years now and the leather gets more gorgeous with age.

Kelsey Rose ceramics

My friend gifted me one of Kelsey Rose’s handmade ceramic bowls for my birthday and I love how versatile it is.

The Edit: Oh So Pretty Blog

victoria-oh-so-prettyI’m so excited to have Victoria of Oh So Pretty share her favorite American-made picks with us today! Victoria’s blog and instagram are absolutely gorgeous and have made me rethink my stance on color – I’d be happy to live in the bright and white world she has created. Unsurprisingly, Victoria’s picks would fit right in… and she’s introduced me to some new brands while also sharing some favorites! Thank you, so much, Victoria!
