What better way to spend a lovely afternoon in LA than giving back?! Recently A-listers and influencers gathered at a private residence in the hills for an afternoon with eco-conscious brands that support the community and responsible consumerism.
The n:Philanthropy Give Back Garden Party hosted an exclusive garden party with fellow give back conscious brands like nyakio, FASHIONABLE, Pure Growth Organic, and ReThink Water.
Jurnee Smollett-Bell looked timeless as she wore a n:Philanthropy tee with Madewell Jeans. With her adorable 7-month old Hunter on her hip she discussed the importance of giving back. "I remember my mom taking us to group homes and showing us kids who were living in group homes. She always raised us like to whom much is given is expected," Jurnee explained. She continued to discuss her plans for instilling the same values with her little one. "I'm gonna start him young. I want him to be aware and make proper choices in life and know your truths, don t be self centered. Just know that the world doesn't revolve around the individual. I plan on having him volunteer and giving back at a very young age to help him make smart choices."
n:Philanthropy is the epitome of girl boss! The contemporary clothing line is far from basic. The super soft fashion-forward collection is 100% made in the great city of LA and strives to #GiveaDamn! In such the brand is led by a strong team of individuals who volunteer at various charities such as: Children's Hospital LA, the ASPCA, and other local animal charities.
Nyakio showcased its ethically skincare collection that is inspired by global traditions from around the world. The brand takes its users back to their roots by using practices and beauty traditions from 13 countries across the globe. "My beauty journey started when I was a young girl visiting my gradmother in Kenya," says Nyakio. "She was a coffee farmer who taught me to crush coffee beans and rub them on my skin using a piece of sugarcane to reove dry skin. I've curated beauty secrets like this from my family, friends, and travels around the world and translated them into a full line of skincare based on cultivated global beauty secrets, cultural traditions, and ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients." Nyakio has teamed up with Girls Inc., a non-profit organization that inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold.
The Lipstick Lobby proved that they are a force to be recon with! The shade of pink is not only a perfect summer hue, it also packs a punch to #LipStickItToTheMan. The hue also signifies Pus*y Power! Our current president has made it clear that he does not acknowledge the importance of women's rights and is currently attempting to dismantle important groups such as Planned Parenthood. The group of powerful souls continue to inspire and empower everyone to speak up for what is right. They even donate 100% of proceeds to Planned Parenthood!
Additional guests include: Adria Arjona, Serayah, Sarah Wright Olsen, Cat Deeley, Camilla Belle, Emmy Rossum, Katherine Schwarznegger, and more.
The celeb-heavy event garnished an impressive crowd that was excited to see brands putting their best foot forward and donating to a bigger cause.
