My First ShiftCon Experience

Info & Tips, Lifestyle

Last month I had the pleasure of not only attending ShiftCon for the first time but I was also speaking on a panel. This was my first experience at ShiftCon and it was nothing short of amazing! I got to connect with some of the most amazing women in wellness. The vibe and spirit throughout the conference was so uplifting.

ShiftCon Eco-Wellness Conference is an eco-wellness conference focusing on food, wellness, health, sustainability, and growth. Being a “Shifter” means to be a part of an online influencer community that seek healthier and more sustainable lives, promote brands that mirror their values, and help causes that speak to their soul. Their tag line is “Shift happens. Be a part of it”. Love that!

I spoke on my experience as a wellness blogger and provided tips to those who are new in the space. I was the only black woman on the panel and happy to be a voice for women of color on the panel and share some of my unique experience to inspire others on their path.

I was also nominated for ShiftCon Shifters Best Plant Based Beauty award!!!! Never could I have imagined that my blog would be honored in such a great way. The beautiful people at Replenology gifted all the award honorees with this beautiful plaque that I will cherish always. Even though this sounds so cliché, it truly was an honor just to be nominated.

One of the most significant moments for me was the essence of female empowerment and diversity. ShiftCon founder Leah Segedie (pictured above in green dress) prides herself on uplifting and encouraging women to walk in the fullness of who we are. All of the speakers and presenters were incredible women who are all making strides in the wellness community in their own right. I felt really blessed to be honored among some of these amazing women in wellness. Leah shared with me how it was very important that the panels and presentations be from women of diverse backgrounds. This really meant a lot to me personally as a black woman in the wellness and clean beauty space because we are often ignored in this community. The main reason why I started this blog was because I saw a lack of representation in this green beauty & wellness industry. Health and eco-consciousness are something that everyone should embrace not just one segmented group. Like me, ShiftCon believes and fights for inclusivity in the wellness industry.

 

Last but not least The Swag Bags!!!

As a speaker I received two huge bags of wellness and clean beauty goodies. It took me literally an entire day just to go through everything. What I really love is that it wasn’t centered solely on beauty but on total wellness. I want to start featuring more health focused brands on the blog and thankfully I was able to connect with a lot of them at ShiftCon. Here are just a few of the brands:

  • Nutrigold
  • Mountain Rose Herbs
  • Oral Essentials
  • Health Ade Kombucha
  • Earth Mama
  • Ann Marie Skincare
  • Steamychick
  • Clearly Filtered H20
  • Goddess Garden Organics
  • Seasnax
  • Genexa
  • Boron
  • Flora Vitamins

Be on the look out for reviews and features with some of the above mentioned brands!
