It is often said that you are a reflection of the five people you spend the most time with. When I stop to reflect on who that is for me, I immediately recognize that I am surrounded by like minded women, who are also driven to create better experiences for other women. Although these women work in industries other than wine, we have a common goal to change the lives of women for the better. Since I’m sitting down with three of these women tomorrow, I’d love to tell you more about them.
Maureen Pollack, is a self proclaimed “love sommelier” and co-founder of Lovability, a body safe brand of sexual health and wellness enhancements made specifically for women to experience more pleasure. She is the inventor of the TikTok famous WaterSlyde and has been featured in Time, Forbes, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Bustle, Pop Sugar, and more.
Wanting women to feel more empowered to enjoy solo and coupled sex, Maureen has been re-imagining everything from lubes to condoms and wipes with a female first mindset. With witty names like Hallelubyah and Quickies (wipes), these products feature ingredients like hydrating aloe, and are so thoughtfully curated (ph-balanced) you can even use them on your face. The Three Play Massage Candle has a sexy scent both sexes will love, with notes of oak that set the wood and complement a glass of Teneral Cellars Chardonnay. Not only are Lovability’s products amazing but we love their values! Inclusion, empowerment, feminism, choice, sex and body positivity. They’re ready to “fight the patriarchy” and work to break down stigmas that negatively impact women. Our visions are so aligned. You’ve got to try these products for yourself! The products arrive in discreet, beautiful packaging. They also make a kick ass gift!
Julie Gordon White, founder of Bossa Bars Menopause Energy Bars, found herself gaining the “meno middle” in the midst of the pandemic. Making brownies for her family to enjoy, she enjoyed one daily as well. Trying to avoid the “Killer C’s” candy, cookies, and chips, and knowing the health implications of having a waist size above 35 inches, the three time entrepreneur went to work creating a delicious solution. The result: the first functional food for menopause!
Made with a powerful trifecta of Organic Maca to balance hormones and blood sugar, 29% of the daily recommended fiber for women to feel full and satisfied, and plant protein to help maintain muscle and boost metabolism they are only 150 calories and were named both a low sugar food by Parade Magazine, and an Oprah Daily Best Menopause Product.
