guess what my darlings? i’ve got good news to share and its not that im on my period this week. its sponsor goodness. one of the most delightful things about growing Oh Sh!t, is the fucking amazing women who have come along side us and partnered with what were doing. what are we doing? well were saying, I AM A WOMAN, HEAR ME ROAR and SOAR and RUMBLE TO SUCCESS.
we’re about chasing your passion.
living with intent.
saying no to fear.
saying yes to your gut.
That’s what Oh Sh!t is about and I have been so thrown for happiness seeing how easily and readily women have said YES to partnering with us. i didnt even have to really explain (although i did)….its so amazing to see women just getting it and wanting to be a part of our family. cats outta the bag, we give gorgeous goody bags to our girls when they arrive at Oh Sh!t…that’s right….goody bags. might as well be the grammy’s. anyhow, we love our sponsors and love even more that somehow we’ve partnered up with FEMALE ENTREPRENEURS and want to shine some light on other women who are doin their thang and chasing their passion.
without further adieu. i introduce to you: thee sponsors.
UNCVRD JEWELRY // Gave Us: Necklaces, Bracelets and Jewerly….oh my! it warms my little heart to see friends and – yep – previous brides – kickin ass and doing good. this line is some serious gorgina jewelry. hand made in Californ-ai-eih comes this simple and dainty line that does good. 40% of every purchase goes directly to help end human trafficking by way of “Gems Uncovered” which is a outreach that provides supplies and love to girls in the Long Beach and Compton area as well as a Drop-In center thats a safe place for survivors of sex trafficking that helps with mentoring, job training and GED programs. Jen, is a beam of light and beauty and we’re always so happy to have her jewels in our bags. she has a new line out and is always creating new beams of glory for you to wear. i think her crystal necklace would be so gorg for bridesmaids. hello.

ILLUMINATE JUICE // Gave Us: JUICES FOR OUR DAYS! stop drop and roll, we’ve got some #GIRLBOSSES on our hands. we were lucky enough to meet the stars behind Illuminate Juice and man, they pack some great energy. we love seeing small female businesses kick ass – its kinda what we’re all about – and these girls are our favorite. I’ve been a juicer for a few years now (making my own but also buying everywhere) so i appreciate good juice and great ingredients. we were supa-dupa pumped to have juice to hand our girls thru out the day and we are delighted to introduce them to you. available for delivery, cleanses, juice packs of your choosing….whateva you want. my personal favorite was the “enlighten” juice with beets…..mmmmm. (also can make your poop look like you’re dying….so dont be alarmed! muhahaha)
GIFT SHOP BROOKLYN // Gave Us: Clutches, Wallets, Jewelry and Hair-Tie’s! I’ve got a serious crush on this shop. the most darling and well thought out, minimal yet wonderful leather goods and beyond! if i could eat her shop, i would. we got totally spoiled by Annie and got to deliver so much goodness to our girls. her products are – you guessed it – made in Brooklyn with seriously the softest locally sourced leather. this shop is all-american and what could be better! everything in her shop is so super perfect for birthdays, bridesmaids gifts…or my favorite, spoiling yourself! some of my favorite products of hers are the little card case wallets and clear makeup bag. i’ll take two of both. im so excited to introduce you to this shop…all thank you’s can be sent in form of leather goods. you’re welcome.
GOOD 4 YOU // Gave Us: Apricot Rose Face Mask. good luck getting this on your face instead of your mouth, because it smells so damn good you want to eat it! Good4You is an independent beauty brand that uses local flowers + herbs to create makeup, skin care + bath products for a new kind of natural beauty. feel good knowing you are doing right by your body and mama earth when you use this sweet smelling, all-natural face mask. her site, social media and packaging is just near the best thing ever, bright and cheery colors, interesting combinations and photos. i love that each product comes with fun & colorful packaging and illustrations.

LUCA JEWELRY // Gave Us: Gold Plated Bracelets and Necklaces. killer personalized gold jewelry with dainty, beautiful quality. LUCA jewelry is custom made over on the other coast, in New Jersey, by a british born ex-fashion designer. she goes beyond the typical personalized pieces with interesting thread, directional jewelry and just a touch extra from what you would expect. Geeta sent over an amazing selection of necklaces and bracelets that our gals had on from moment one being at the workshop. i always prefer to be wearing a small piece that never comes off, and currently have the necklace she made for me with the roman numerals of our wedding year.
ALBERTINA BOUTIQUE // Gave Us: Leather Goods. mmmm, good leather. this shop is inspired by her stylish and fiesty grandma. Albertina Boutique aims to incorporate and emphasize her uniqueness and grandmother’s spirit in her leather goods. These gorgeous leather goods are comin’ at you all the way from Israel. I die over this black leather backpack, you must check out her line! you’re welcome.
ONYX COFFEE LAB // Gave Us: All Our Morning Coffee. first of all, can we talk about gorgeous design work? thank you. i just loved the moody feel to their design work. sign me up. organic beans and small batches. every batch is hand crafted in small quantities, never over 20 pounds at a time to ensure quality and correct flavors. Onyx does it right down to the bean and you can feel that in their brand, site and product…i love all the detail to design and informing the customer about their process. its just a delight. you may think…all that for coffee? Oh Sh!t stems from Seattle and we care about our coffee here. these fine folks (one of the owners name is Andrea!) are from Arkansas and take big pride in what they do and we were so happy to have them on our team!
KARI GRAN // Gave Us: Lip Whips. in Sephora stores and also in our goody bags. kari gran gets it. this makeup goddess is bringing to the table some all natural, organic lip products that are totally gorgeous and will have your lips feelin’ oh so happy and healthy. If you dont know yet, Kari Gran is an eco-luxe skin care brand providing a simple, elegant, all natural skin care solution that works flawlessly for any age and skin type. everything from skincare, to lips all the way over to mineral makeup….you’re fully covered and know you’re only putting good on your skin.
SCARLET & GOLD // Gave Us: Thick and Luscious Prints. I’ve been following this brand for a few years now and just love everything they put out. At the base of who they are…they are heart and they are genuine. from the true south, these little southern bells inject fun and spunky personality to so many items girls love. notebooks. tees. art prints. onesies. temp tattoos and phone cases. we just love working with them, because you can just feel their goodness down to the last drop. they bring encouragement and love into a brand in the best way and we are big fans of this Southern brand (and they’re all #girlbosses!)
THE DIRTY GOAT // Gave Us: Organic Clay Face Masks. dont be fooled by this little case, it packs a’lotta punch. I’ve been a huge fan of clay masks for a while, so we were so pumped to be able to pop some in our girls bags. i try to do a mask at least once a month, or after travel or whenever i just dont feel like my face is fresh. Clay masks have been my favorite for sure, there is nothing else that makes my face feels plumper and more smooth, than this bad boy of a mask. Erica puts together small batches of her items and skips no corners. i love her line and want to buy some for xmas gifts….pumpkin spice sugar fluff scrub & pink lemonade sugar squares for your bath? sign me up. take a peek at her etsy shop and get yo’self something good. she also has a probiotic natural deodorant with great reviews (i found out this weekend my Dove deo is 9 out of 10 on the chemically bad scale) so im back to the books to finding a good natural deodorant. (please share in the comments if you love one!)
WILD COLUMBINE TEXTILES // Gave Us: Hand-Made Necklaces. This little lady is straight outta the south, in the great city of Nashville. she makes to order cotton thread jewelry and pieces for your home. I’ve been dying to get some sort of white hand made piece like this for my walls (or as a ceremony backdrop for our wedding) and i love what she creates! check out her line and her wonderful photos and arrangements….goodness straight outta the south.

ABOVE THE FRAY // Gave Us: Powerplay Mac Cord Manager. I love this. hello! how long have we been trying to mangle our damn computer cords. well well, all the way from Thailand, you can get your problem solved. you can see how the product looks here when all wrapped up. (we didnt want to tear open someone’s gift!) these babies are magic. not only do they keep your cord all nice and tidy while in transit in your bag, there is also no need to even remove it from the case while in use, the cord manager can stay on the entire time. yipee! this leather is vegetable tanned and just gorgeous in person. Above the Fray, has a gorgeous line that goes far beyond this product. cable organizers, coin purses, belts, wallets…a lot of wonderful leather goods from this gal. we’re so happy she solved the unsolvable problem with those damn cords!
GABRIEL COSMETICS // Gave Us: Eyeshadow Palette and Makeup Wipes + Makeup for our Model Shoot. Gabriel is a Seattle based 100% certified cruelty-free, all-natural and vegan line. Gabriel has got mad high-standards for beauty that make for a positively beneficial and beautiful product, any way you look at it! We were so happy to introduce this line to our gals, as many women dont even know where to turn when looking for makeup that isnt testing on animals and putting scary ingredients in our makeup. Well, you’ve found it!
A big part of not wanting to leave our Mac and Revlon behind as girls, is we just dont know how its gonna perform. well well, Gabriel was kind enough to send along many things for Gaylin to use on Talia for our shoot so you could SEE with your own eyes that this shit is legit and beautiful. You can see the products used during our shoot below.
