When a store that is “using beauty as a tool for positive change” creates a daylong wellness retreat, you can expect a very special event. On Saturday ABC Carpet & Home invited to its annual beauty wellness wisdom event, an uplifting day full of wellness, beauty, astrology and inspiration. For one day the mezzanine level of the store was transformed into a beautifully curated sacred space. Starting with a chakra group meditation guided by yogiraj Sarah Platt-Finger, accompanied by music by Aya and Tyler who combine different musical elements to a multilayered soundscape, participants, mostly women, were guided to set their intention for the day.
After meditating and listening to an inspiring panel of speakers, including Reiki healer Millana Snow of SERENE and activist + beauty entrepreneur Leila Janah (Laxmi), participants could meet their favorite eco brands. Afternoon offers included mini facials by such amazing brands as Tata Harper, Dr. Alkaitis and Tracy Martin, nails by Jin Soon, make up by RMS beauty or a face workout by Face Love Fitness. Also on offer were writing and flower arrangement workshops. Astrologist Demitra Vassiliadis would sit down for one-on-one forecasts and palm readings.
For refreshments, tea by LØV Organic and LA’s latest cosmical health juice craze Moon Juice were served throughout the day. Everything felt just perfect. ‘The only thing that upsets me is that there are no men at the event,” one woman told me and I agree. Maybe next year there’ll be more? I can just tell you guys out there, it is so worth going! I left the event happy, uplifted and full of positive energy and a bag of products I am very excited to try out now.

Yarok turned my hair experience into a good hair day. With just a few touch ups here and there, it became shiny and voluminous.
Tracie Martyn’s LotuSculpt showed instant results on my left eye – now I need a right eye treatment 😉
