Caroline Harper Knapp – House of Harper
Caroline Harper Knapp spent nearly a decade working in the fashion industry before bringing her skillset – visual merchandising, branding, creative planning and a meticulous eye for style – to HOUSE of HARPER, a digital destination for millennial women to take a moment out of their day to be inspired. As a young mom, Caroline aims to inspire the modern woman with an elevated yet approachable take on life.
Caroline’s refreshing, positive attitude pervades all aspects of her content, which is bright, airy, and sometimes preppy all American. Her southern sensibilities shine through in the easy ways she entertains at home and how she whole-heartedly embraces motherhood and the challenges that come along with it.
Estela Cockrell – Switch2Pure
Estela Cockrell started Switch2Pure because she wanted products free from harmful chemicals that may burden the human immune system and make people sick. After experiencing mysterious symptoms and being diagnosed with anything from food allergies, autoimmune disorders, to Lyme disease, she took a closer look at the everyday products her family used and discovered the ugly truth about the harmful ingredients that make up many household products.
Backed by a scientific team and a small army of label-reading experts, Estela set out to make it easier for anyone, at any age or in any condition to find safer products that truly work. Switch2Pure believes that clean beauty and skincare don’t need to be complicated, and a natural home should be more than a far-off idea.
