“Every great work, every big accomplishment, has been brought into manifestation through holding to the vision, and often just before the big achievement, comes apparent failure and discouragement.”
– Florence Scovel Shinn

This is Brandi Leifso, CEO of Evelyn Iona Cosmetics. I am such a huge fan of this amazing human being. Brandi has overcome great obstacles in her own life, and on the path to creating this socially conscious company. Yet her beautiful and determined heart keeps her going and holds her strong while creating her vision, despite the many obstacles and difficulties she has encountered along the way.

A little Q + A with Brandi

Q: What inspires you in life?
A: The ability to make someones life better.

Q: What is/are your greatest passion(s) in life?
A: Paying it forward is my greatest passion – it gives me that same kind of feeling jumping for joy does 🙂 I also have a passion for food & traveling.

Q: What is your driving force in life?
A: The unknown and the challenge of accomplishing your wildest dreams.

Q: What is your philosophy in life?
A: Work hard and be nice to people.

Not only are her organic, cruelty free products good for you, they are also good for the women in our communities. Women in need of the support and camaraderie of other women. $1 from every Evelyn Iona product you buy is donated to friends at YWCA Canada. YWCA is an organization dedicated to helping nearly 25 million women and girls, per year, flee violence, secure housing, find jobs, establish their voices, enhance their skills and develop confidence.

This is not meant to be a sales pitch, I am just so darn proud of Brandi, all she has accomplished, and how she intentionally created a business that helps other women flourish. She has literally set up her company in a way that her success, supports others to succeed as well. She is an inspiration and it makes me want to jump for joy that people like her exist in the world.

Feeling inspired to do better by people like Brandi. Thanks for being you Brandi ❤

Much love –

Eyoalha

This is from a creative night shoot I did recently on a very very cold night! Make up by Brandi Leifso of Evelyn Iona Cosmetics Hair by Matthew J Schubert and Megumi Hasegawa at T’Sala Salon Spa and wrap by Himikalas Baker of Touch of Culture pants by Alano Edzerza.

This was kind of an outtake from the shoot, we laughed at how much Sierra resembles a troll pencil with her blue hair sticking straight up in the air. Amazing how fun and laughing makes even the cold bearable 🙂

Have a fantastic day!

Brandi and I had a little adventure on our jump photo shoot and ended up in an old book store in Vancouver, BC. We whispered and snuck around like we were about to get in trouble at any moment, even after having permission to take photos in the shop. Very funny, and some really cool old books too.

ps Brandi just started a new Organic and Socially Responsible make up line called Evelyn Iona Cosmetics check it out 🙂

Have a wonderful day!
