Sayblee is an organic, vegan certified hair care product line made of all-natural ingredients. Our favorite thing about this line? It’s all inclusive! From their rosemary clarifying set to their extra penetrating lime nourishing oil, the line has quality products to offer for all hair types. Most importantly, it’s a brand that cares about its long lasting impact it has on the environment. Although the physical store is closed, Sayblee Products continues to ship directly to your home and offers safe, curbside pickup.

The concept behind KAMSA began in the Colombian Amazon over 500 years ago. Kamsa Indians began using superfoods to create water infusion formulas that were critical to long-lasting health. KAMSA offers four refreshing flavors that are USDA organic certified and are sugar free.
Not only are we obsessed with how good these drinks are, but the absolute stand-out feature of this company is that it continues to provide essential items, such as shoes, clothing, training, and equipment to thousands of hardworking families back in Colombia. Follow them on Instagram to learn more about how your purchase directly benefits families! KAMSA is currently offering FREE shipping to orders in Miami-Dade and Broward County. Any online order now comes with a free 8oz hand sanitizer while supplies last.
Founded in 2013, HABITACTIV’S priority has always been community reinvestment. For that reason, owner and founder, Crystal Ramkissoon, works exclusively with small, women-owned sewing contributors to produce her goods. Due to the unfortunate COVID-19 pandemic, her sewing shops were forced to close. However, that has not stopped Crystal’s determination. Since the closures, Crystal has handmade every single sports bra from her own home studio. As HABITACTIV continues to grow, the brand has consciously shifted to sustainable fashion.
For instance, one of the latest designs pictured below was made from a recycled jacket which served to create five other sports bras. Follow HABITACTIV on Instagram for their latest designs.

Although their beautiful shop remains closed, Sana is offering 10% off your first order with code “Lemonade.” And free shipping on orders over $75.00.
We are all spending more time with our best, furry friends now more than ever. It’s finally time to give them the nutrition they deserve.

Wynwood Dog Food Co. has been able to keep all of its staff on during these difficult times! There is nothing that doesn’t impress us about its local, entrepreneurial spirit.

If you are not familiar with drinking traditional yerba mate, let us introduce you! A native plant from the subtropical forest in South America, yerba mate is a powerful antioxidant, source of vitamin and minerals, and a great alternative to coffee since it provides energy without the crash. Our favorite thing about the brand? The traditional bombillas and straws set. Taking time during the day to prepare this drinks in its traditional form with gourd sets made from leather, allows one to be present and intentional as we delight in knowing we are caring for our bodies from the inside out.
Too busy during your day to prepare the traditional way? Mater offers the same great flavors to brew in a French press/tea diffuser. Our favorite flavors? The ginger/lemon to wake us up in the morning and the chamomile/lavender after a long bath to end our night routine.
