New York: Love Yourself First with Jessa Blades, Cyndie Spiegel, and Ellie Burrows with Follain

Join Jessa Blades, Cyndie Spiegel, and Ellie Burrows at Follain Soho Wednesday, 2/22 from 6-9pm as we explore simple, practical ways to put yourself first.

In a world we're constantly being pulled in a million different directions, self-care can seem like a lofty notion. Who has time to be unavailable to others and brew soothing tea while wearing a face mask AND have a regular meditation practice? Turns out, you do. 

Jessa Blades is a natural beauty expert, professional makeup artist, herbalist and all around self-care guru. She beautifies, heals, and enlightens people wherever she roams, from LA to NYC to Nantucket and beyond.

Cyndie Spiegel is a speaker and small business coach based in Brooklyn whose "don't be an asshole" philosophy and bright spirit (and lipstick) immediately won our hearts. She coaches and advocates for women around the world, and is an adjunct professor at Parsons School of Design.

Ellie Burrows traveled the world as a spiritual tourist before returning to New York to receive her Certificate in Coaching from NYU. Seeking to pursue mindfulness in a meaningful way, Ellie hatched the idea for MNDFL, where she is the co-founder and CEO.

RSVP to attend - seated space is limited.
