Meet the Chick !!

In this special post I bring you the  Choosy Chick Online (Green) store .  You may ask your self Another-online Green Store , YES ! This one is different  though as it brings focus to baby & family living  but most important in keeping a safe & happy family . Margot the founder of  The Choosy Chick is a mother too that is like all moms concern about what product are used in their kids  sensitive skin and what is brought to her home .

A Chick that Take Care of its Farm !!!

The Choosy Chick is a online store that provides detail information & resources that help to make your home greener and safe for your little ducklings but for everyone in the home.  In addition to  carrier products & brands that the whole family can use . Such as  kid body care, dental care, hair care products that are just for them. The store also has a great selection of   brands for the adults  that range from body care,skincare , and hair care products .

Its a One stop shop for the whole Family !!

‚ô•

NOW LETS GET too SOME CHICK TALK !!!!

Now lets get more personally with the CHICK behind this amazing Online  store created by Margot & Joe . A  green shop created by a couple to bring a healthy lifestyle to their family  and of course to US. I got the honor chance to chick chat with Margot about all things green !

And for this special chat I bring you a FUN Interview with Margot ¬† ! Oh… get ready to laugh tooo !

 

Question : As a go-mom that you are, what products are found in your hand bag right now as we speak?

Margot : As we speak – here we go: ¬†Au Naturale Lip Gloss: ¬†Nothing like a sweep of shiny, natural gloss to brighten your lips and your day. ¬†MUN No. 1 Aknari Youth Brightening Serum. ¬†I apply this as needed throughout the day to moisturize and brighten my skin and the aroma makes me feel so good! ¬†Splurge Skincare’s Melted Buttah – for those emergency dry spots and lip¬†treatment¬†in cold weather – ¬†DN-UNIK’s Eye Contour Serum – for when my tired eyes need a pick-me-up and to bash dark circles! ¬†This is just my bag. ¬†My bathroom is another story!

 Question: If you could be a cartoon character for a day who would you be & why?

Margot:  Definitely Merida from the movie Brave!   I admire her spunky spirit, her fearless nature and her ability to be comfortable with who she is.

Question : Kids & family members LOVE to take over are product cabinet, what is one product you hide away from them? And why?

Margot : Oh my gosh. ¬†Funny you should ask! I found my Kari Gran Lip Whip in my 11 year old son’s backpack and my hubby takes the Josh Rosebrook Cacao Mask and my Solavedi Organics ZAP! Blemish Spot Treatment – so I have to keep those concealed! ¬†We also fight over the Griffin Remedy and Ahnesti shampoo – my kids ALWAYS use way too much. ¬†And please don’t dare mess with my Graham Gardens Avocado Oatmeal soap!

¬†Question: The one ‚Äúquote‚ÄĚ that you read & ¬†keeps you going :

Margot: This quote from Herbert Needleman is so inspiring to me and literally fuels me to help make a difference. ¬†‚ÄúSince 1950, at least 70,000 new chemical compounds have been invented and dispersed into our environment. Only a¬†fraction of these have been tested for human toxicity. We are, by default, conducting a massive clinical toxicology trial, and¬†our children and their children are the experimental animals.‚ÄĚ

 Question: Green beauty had a big year in 2014, what 2014 products where you’re favorite & what new brand discoveries you found?

Margot: I honestly have favorites from all of our lines! ¬†In terms of brand new discoveries, I ¬†am very pleased that DN-UNIK found The Choosy Chick. ¬†I am very impressed with this age-defying line from France and can’t wait to see what they will come up with next!

 Question: What flower or plant best describe you as a person & that you feel a nature connection with?

Margot:¬† I absolutely adore Hydrangeas. ¬†Their big, bold flowers just always make me feel so good. ¬† I love all the shades: blue, the pink, the lacey ones. ¬†All of them! ¬† I am not a happy camper when mine won’t bloom! I love them outside, ¬†inside in a vase and even dried.

 Question: The green community love to meet up and get everyone together, if you could have the chance to have Tea Time with some of them (brand owner, store owner, etc ) who would be sitting in the table ?

Margot: Oh my gosh what a great question. ¬†Their are so many people that I would love to meet, including you, Yeiza ¬†with your amazing childhood story. ¬† I would also love to meet some of the first people that helped get me off the ground – so here we go: ¬†Katie – ¬†The Green Product Junkie, Cori at Well Beauty Blog, Little Ru at Short Small and Sweet (I wonder if I am actually taller than she is – I’m 4’11), Danielle ¬†– The Glamorganic Goddess, ¬†Kasey at Plein Vanity. ¬†Then at each end of the table I’d pick a king and queen. ¬†HollyBeth from HollyBeth Organics and Josh Rosebrook!

 Question: What can your customers expect form Choosy Chick in 2015?  We look forward to an exciting 2015!

Margot: We will be adding some new products from existing lines and taking on a few more. ¬†We also will be hosting more interviews with “people in the know” via our blog and¬†would like to offer our repeat customers a rewards program.

Thank you Margot for the chick chat and the many good laughs !!! in doing this fun interview !! Looking forward to that TEA TIME in A NEAR FUTURE. ‚ô•

Of course nothing always ends up a smooth ride ! The Day to head off to my Boston & New york road trip woke up to Heavy Rain & fog ūüė¶ . Through the whole 8 Hour Drive¬† I kept my figures cross that The Rain would Move Away.

But I took it slowly with My Green Tea in Hand &¬† Pop Music¬† Kept My spirits Dancing¬† :). As The rain didn’t allow me to see & Leaves where falling like Rain … slippery Road HEAD !!!

BUT I MADE IT TO BOSTON ….. Safe with 30 minutes to turn in my rental car & find the shop Location.

Found the lovely Shop  as the area surround its self with Brick English Homes & Trees in Fall Rainbow colors  as the air was crisp.

TIME FLY ……. & What do Green Blogger Do ?

We where at Follian for  a least 2 hours  stopping at each display section trying things on and talking about the product in ever scene of it ( texture, smell, etc.) . We share with each other products that have worked for us & giving  tips of advise   .

Testing Testing … in what We do Best ..

We tested so many different products that we yet love & New ones that we had are Eyes ON. To some surprise many we say NO TOO.¬† RMS Beauty¬† in Curious lip/cheek¬† is a product that me & Ru where curious about but Found are self’s Not Wanting TOO BE PUMPKIN Orange. ¬† IT WAS WAY TO ORGANGE no matter in what sun light or light was put on.

One fun Spot was THE HAND SINK STATION in the shop, where you get to try local hand made liquid soap . For fall scents they had Ginger Tea, Rosemarry & Teak . All the soap felt lovely . A super fun way  to try a liquid  soap.

CHECKING OUT ….

After testing & rethink what we are going to take home . we all check out with are goodies.

What I GOT……

IMG_1327Although the shop had some amazing line up of product. I went for local PICKS that I knew I could not get any where else .

1. Follian Local Liquid Soaps : these are exclusive only to the store & you can only get them at the Shop . The soaps  change from time to time  by different local creators , which is pretty awesome I think in addition that your supporting a local business owner. Out of the three scents I got TEAK, its a soft fresh scent of crisp Fall AIR.

2. Stewart & Claire Lip Balm : exclusive scent & Design Just for the shop. You can only find this in store and I just had to pick one up as I am a Lip Balm girl. Also Now Ill be taking a little piece of Follian & Boston with me always.

3. Beridan Naturals Chamomile & Grapefruit Butter:  A new brand and one that I been eye out in Etsy for some time now . Love the smell & feel of this product as it just melts into your skin.

Strolling in BOSTON …..

After coming out smelling like SPA , we head out to a few local cafe’s that where recommended by Holly a staff member at Follian. In which she gave us a local map and Line out some of stops that we would love¬† .¬† First up was CAFE MADELINE a little french cafe that was a sweet tooth dream .

But in stead we hop over to a stroll into UNION PARK that was filled with beautiful trees & brick homes. In which we happen to see the MOST HALLOWEEN HOME with decorations that made us stop & think HOW DID THEY DO IT or HOW DID THEY GET UP THEIR ?!.
