Hello beautiful friends!
We're super excited for 2017. We have a lot of events planned and are excited to share our love for cruelty free beauty and makeup with you.
2017 is the year of the fire rooster. If are unfamiliar with Chinese zodiac it is based on the 12 year lunar cycle and is known as the oldest of astrologies dating back over 5,000 years. It is said to have been created by Lord Buddha before departing Earth. But what does Chinese zodiac have to do with beauty and makeup? Everything!
The year of the fire rooster is said to be one that is prosperous for most of us. Even if you don't believe in astrology, there's no harm in exploring and reading about it. Indi was born in the year of Rat and I (Ary) was born in the year of the Rabbit.
2016 was the year of the fire monkey which meant that if you wanted to do something then now was the time to do it. It definitely was a year of the go-getters and the unexpected and I think we can all agree there were some surprising events occurring both domestically and internationally in 2016. For us personally it was a year of surprise both good and bad but that's what made 2016 so exciting. In 2016 we had crazy experiences and the best was opening up our online store INDI & ARY. It was an incredible feeling to finally make our vision a reality. Despite all the other stuff that happened, 2016 was a good year for us.
So now we descend upon 2017 year of the fire rooster. It is said that the year of the fire rooster is one for impressions. That is, bring your A-game. You'll want to present yourself as best as possible and be clear about what you want, your intentions, regarding everything; love, money, business, family. But it's also a year of sticking to proven methods rather than risk taking, unlike in 2016. So what does that mean for Indi and I and you, our beautiful friends?
It means that because of our extensive experience in the beauty and makeup industry Indi and I will be doing what we do best, meeting you! We have SO many events coming up throughout Southern California and we want you to come out and join us for a day of playing with makeup. We'll be at a new event every month. You'll see us at vegan events both in Los Angeles and Orange County, and hopefully San Diego.
Indi and I love interacting with all our friends at these events. Plus they're the perfect way to test out products you like but are hesitant to buy. It's also a great place to have your makeup done by yours truly. If you're hesitant about foundation choice, no problem! If you read our bio you'll know that I am an esthetician, which teaches you color theory, and also was a makeup artist for a large international beauty brand. Because we carry foundation from Adorn, FACEatelier and Sappho we have all the skin tones covered! I am confident that I can color match you and on top of that we'll show you awesome products that you'll love not only because they are high performing but also because they are vegan and cruelty free!
We also love spending time and talking with you. Why? Because you babes tell us what you want and what kind of brands you want us to carry! We love talking about animals rights and how living a cruelty free lifestyle is possible. Just because we love animals does not mean we don't want to get dolled up. That's why we make sure that all the brands we carry are 100% cruelty free, meaning that they do not test on animals, their manufactures do not test on animals and their parent company (should they have one) does not test on animals. We do not want to be associated with any brands that test on animals as we are fervently opposed to animal testing.
This year is definitely one that will bring great change. We are seeing it now with the grand expansion and acceptance of animal rights, this movement is growing and we are happy to be a part of it! So with that being said we welcome in the New Year of the Fire Rooster, let's make things happen!
Until next time, stay beautiful friends.
