Do you remember Fleur de Prairie’s Seeds of Beauty campaign last year? They gave three incredible female-founded small businesses each $5,000 grants to help their professional dreams flourish. I was so honored to be an ambassador for the program. In fact, I love working with brands who believe in helping women. And through the program, I was introduced to some incredible small businesses.
If you are not familiar, the Seeds of Beauty campaign is hosted by Fleurs de Prairie to celebrate female-identifying creators and entrepreneurs by giving three winners a grant, plus business mentorship from marquee ambassadors to help them further propel their careers. The brand invites creators, artisans, and entrepreneurs to apply by illustrating their passions (within art, design, food, writing, and beyond), and share how they spread beauty in their own unique way. Those applying are also asked to share how they plan to use the money to grow their business and make their dream a reality. Last year there were three amazing winners: Eyewear Love Affair, The Reveller, and Amor y Queso.
Fleurs de Prairie Seeds of Beauty 2021
I could not be more thrilled to team up with them again. AND I’m even more excited to share that this year (the third year of Seeds of Beauty!), Fleurs de Prairie will be doubling the grant amount… supplying each of the three winners with $10,000 grants to help fund their endeavors and further succeed. Additionally, each winner will receive mentorship from myself and Caila Quinn. To enter, go to this page!
Fleurs de Prairie is my favorite rosé. The brand name translates as “wildflowers”, a nod to the beautiful fields of wisteria, lavender, poppy, and sunflowers all over the South of France where the wine is sourced. This is a perfect wine to enjoy during the summer – it is light and crisp with citrus and floral flavors. Fleurs de Prairie rosé retails for $22 and pairs really well with warm weather dishes, like seasonal fruits, vegetables,. fresh fish, and other lighter proteins. It’s also great with a cheese plate… ideal for al fresco drinking!
