Congratulations to Amy Shavelson on winning the giveaway! Both Maryna and I have been so incredibly moved by your words and stories. Thank you so very much!
I think it was inevitable that I was going to love Maryna, the creator behind Mahalo Care. Not only does she make some of my favorite products, but she is a spunky Russian, with a brunette pixie cut: we are practically twins! Of course, her excellent taste in haircuts is not the real reason why I adore Maryna, but rather it is her passion and the sense of radiant joy that infuses her every action. In my review of Mahalo Care, I talked about the intention that can be seen behind Mahalo products and I can tell you with no exhagerration that Maryna’s joy and passion practically radiate from every bottle and jar. I wanted to interview Maryna ever since we met at ANFGB and we recently sat down for a Skype chat over cups of Sun Potion tea (for me) and coffee (for Maryna). We were thousands of miles and 6 hours apart, but it felt as though I was chatting to a dear friend across a kitchen table.
