This year, the show brought a great platform for attendees to network, learn, get inspired, receive amazing deals on some of the top brands in the world, and so much more!

Shelly Taggar, Owner of The Makeup Show states, “The Makeup Show is so much more than just a trade show. It is a place for artists to network, shop, take classes, set new beauty trends in the industry, and for top brands to launch new products to the pro community. With our increase in education this year there was an even stronger sense of community and inspiration for artists.

Raised a Toast to Earth Day with this Delicious Dairy Alternative! #mooismoot

Open your eyes to a whole new world of non-dairy delights with Milkadamia–the quickly growing dairy alternative that’s making a big difference when it comes to your health and the planet’s. I love the commitment Milkadamia makes to Regenerative Farming and protecting the Earth!

 Their rich and creamy, never roasted always raw macadamia nut milk is so close to dairy that #mooismoot, and they’ve done it all without sacrificing their ethics or the health and safety of other animals. See below for more on what makes Milkadamia unique!

How is Milkadamia making a difference?

  • Free-range Trees — They grow trees that support life, not trees on life support, by not using irrigation systems and minimizing human interventions
  • Regenerative Farming Practices — Their farms are run as naturally as possible using holistic farming techniques that rebuild soil health to drawdown carbon and harness rainwater.
  • Natural Habitats — Their macadamia trees are grown in the place they originated, guaranteeing the climate and waterfall they need to thrive.
  • Bigger Forests  — Milkadamia planted 35,000 new trees last year, providing homes for beneficial wildlife like owls.

In addition to being deliciously free of dairy, soy, GMO’s, and gluten, Milkadamia is cholesterol-free, an excellent source of vitamins D and B12, and packs 50% more calcium than 2% dairy milk.

Milkadamia is available in Original, Unsweetened, Unsweetened Vanilla, and Latte Da in the shelf stable section of 5000 retailers, as well as freshly chilled in the refrigerated section of Walmart stores nationwide.

Take your goods and your beverage on the go with the multi-functional Bindle Bottle!

The bottom storage  holds your small items (keys, money, and more) and the top holds 24 fl. oz. of  your drink of choice, keeping it cold or hot for hours!

The water bottle has become a staple in the everyday lives of millions of people, but when you’re already carrying your keys, wallet and phone, it becomes one more thing to keep track of as you go about your day. I wanted to introduce you to Bindle Bottle. With it’s integrated storage compartment and  vacuum-sealed, dual-walled design, your drink will stay cold and your hands will stay free.

Bindle Bottle Features:

  • Discreet storage compartment measures 3.25” across by 4.25” deep

  • Holds up to 24 ounces of liquid

  • Keeps drinks hot or cold

  • Carry belongings like credit cards, snacks, headphones, and portable chargers

  • Made from 18/8 food grade stainless steel

  • BPA-free

  • Vacuum sealed and double-walled

  • Watertight and scent free storage compartment

Great for the beach, gym, office, and more, the Bindle Bottle is THE must-have sip’n’stash for all your adventures!

What if you could keep your drink close and your essentials even closer without anyone knowing? Each Bindle Bottle holds 24 ounces of liquid and provides 450 cubic centimeters of space to securely store your valuables in the bottom compartment. When developing Bindle Bottle, we prioritized stealth and security while you’re out in public. Unscrew the bottom, place your essentials inside, and rest easy knowing that your stuff – and your hydration – is within arm’s reach.

Innovation and simplicity were the two guiding product principles that drove the creation of Bindle Bottle, and our goal was a product that was equal parts practicality and convenience. Yogis, stash your keys, cards and lip balm in the hidden compartment. Cyclists, keep all of your essentials in one place and slide it into your bike’s bottle carrier for easy access. Festival goers, frolic freely and rest easy knowing you only have to worry about keeping up with one item instead of ten (and that ever-important portable charger). No matter who you are, where you go or what you’re interested in, you’ll always find a use for Bindle Bottle.

We believe in simplicity: less is oftentimes more in today’s fast-paced world. Developing smarter systems to help organize your life is key to our mission. No lights, no sounds, just a simple compartment to consolidate the things you need into one useful, everyday item.
The materials, shape, and structure of the Bindle Bottle are there because you need them. When you buy one (or more), you’re getting a lightweight, durable accessory that gives you ultimate freedom with your everyday carry. #lifeinabottle
