#THATSWHATSHESAID: MAYOWA AND EBONY, FLO + THEO
Flo + Theo was a no-brainer for me to feature - a brand created by sisters (obviously) that speaks to the DIY and natural remedy lover in me. (One of my resolutions for 2016 revolved around green juice).
These two lovelies have created a line that we can only hope gives us the inside out glow that they have. And, #THATSWHATSHESAID is all about pursuing passion - not only have they garnered press from The Zoe Report and Refinery 29, but they have backgrounds in engineering and law that were no match for their true calling.
Q1: Best gift you received? Who gave it to you?
Ebony: About 2 years ago, a group of my close friends and I (none of us originally from NYC) were in a bar in the West Village, we scribbled and drew on a napkin the things we loved about New York and we reminisced about your experiences here. I totally forgot about the napkin, until nearly a year later when it was gifted to me in a beautiful frame by my friend Angelina for my birthday. It really meant a lot to me that she kept it and it really shows that gifts don't have to cost a lot to make an impact.
Q2: Best gift you gave? Who did you give it to?
Ebony: I just recently gave Mayowa a fancy coffee maker because she I know she loves coffee. She said that it was one of the best gifts she had ever received because it shows how well I know her. Luckily she had actually always wanted that brand of coffee machine.
Q3: Best party you attended?
Mayowa: Last year for my birthday,my friends and Ebony had a surprise picnic for me at the Hudson River. It was such a beautiful day, so much delicious food and was so good to see family and friends there. Also they had decorated the area of the park where we were sat with pink balloons because pink is my favorite color.
Q4: Most meaningful project thus far?
Mayowa: FLO + THEO, our all-natural skincare line has being our most meaningful project so far. We are so passionate about healthy skin care and we put all we are into it the brand.
Ebony: I definitely agree with what Mayowa, our business is our passion and we feel so blessed to do what we love everyday.
Q5: Pre-party beauty ritual(s)?
Mayowa: I also make sure my nails look well groomed and try to do a quick facial mask before I put on my makeup.
Ebony: I love to drink, a lot of water beforehand, so that my face looks fresh and hydrated for the party.
