After a long break, The Screen Girls return
Its been 588 days since we last shared anything with you guys. At the time, we had no idea our last radio show, on April 20th, 2018 would actually be our last show.
Since then, we’ve been working on expanding Vellum Wellness. What started off as a way to ‘stay moisturized between the joints’ turned into a complete wellness line, with products designed to unite your mind and body.
The Vellum brand is heavily influenced from our time as Screen Girls and our late nights covering shows and interviewing artists. It was during our time shooting and editing for The Screen Girls that we discovered what wellness meant to us. It was tough with only two of us, going out every night to cover the latest rap shows and snag interviews. Each night, we fell asleep knowing that our sleep hygiene was suffering and our overall sense of well being was slipping away from us.
How The Screen Girls Inspired Vellum Wellness
So much of what inspired the Vellum brand was the journey of artists we met along the way as Screen Girls. Staying physically healthy on tour is a challenge, and with the current state of the world today, staying mentally healthy is even more challenging. We’ve long praised the benefits of cannabis sativa for both the mind and body, and it felt natural for us to include a form of this magical plant in our first formulated product – Elevate Hemp Hand Lotion. We’re so proud of this unique formula we created in conjunction with our team of experts, and even more proud to present our first full collection: Mental Essentials.
Mental Essentials is a collection of 100% pure essential oils designed to reflect your mood and emotions. A strong appreciation of art is at the cornerstone of our brand values, so we worked with LA based artist MRBBABY and commissioned hand painted illustrations of the oils personified into characters. The idea is that when you inhale the oil, and reflect upon the artwork, your mind and body work together to explore the mood the oil is praised for. We found Lavender Oil to work wonders at restoring our night routines.
Although our time at CiTR 107.9 fm has come to an end, we’re just getting started with Vellum and we’re so excited to share updates with you along the way. We’ll still be covering artists, but this time we’ll be focusing a little more on their self care processes, for all the latest updates, follow @vellumwellness on social media (Twitter, IG, FB) and check out the blog SMOKE + MiRRORS.
