ECO ANGEL: Jennifer Love Hewitt


Jennifer Love Hewitt   

ECO ANGEL 

Actress, Singer and Mother Jennifer Love Hewitt is our featured Eco Angel for February 2019. This month Jennifer turns forty and to celebrate we're looking back at her iconic Hollywood career. 

Best known for her role as Sarah in Party of Five, Jennifer Love Hewitt has been acting for 3 decades. She made her TV debut in Disney's Kids Incorporated in 1989 as a backup singer. In the early 90's Jennifer kick started her movie career acting in such films as House Arrest, Trojan War and Sister Act 2. But it wasn't until her breakout role in the 1997 teen horror flick I know What You Did Last Summer that Jennifer became a household name. A lead role in the teen comedy Can't Hardly Wait followed along with the 1998 sequel I Still Know What You Did Last Summer

In the late 90's Jennifer starred as Sarah Reeves in the FOX family drama Party of Five. Along side teen Scream queen Neve Campbell, Jennifer spent five seasons playing sweet and sassy Sarah on the beloved drama series from 1995 to 1999. 

Although Jennifer is most known for acting, she also loved to sing! During her spent time filming Party of Five Jennifer was a recording artist signed to Atlantic Records and released 3 studio albums; Let's Go Bang (1995) Jennifer Love Hewitt (1996) and BareNaked (2002). 

After her role on Party of Five, Jennifer was cast as the iconic Audrey Hepburn in the TV movie The Audrey Hepburn StoryIn 2001 Jennifer starred along side Sigourney Weaver in the comedy Heartbreakers. The following year she landed the role of smart scientist Del Blaine in the Jackie Chan action comedy Tuxedo


Jennifer Love Hewitt | Heartbreakers


When Jennifer turned 26 she returned to TV with her lead role in the Emmy nominated series Ghost Whisperer. With five seasons on the show from 2005 to 2010, her character Melinda Gordon, a spiritual medium who communicates with the dead is one of Hewitt's most memorable TV characters. 

When it comes to things that go bump in the night, Jennifer is an uber-believer. 


Jennifer: "There are people that are working on this show who don't believe, and then there's me who's like an uber-believer. I'm a believer. I've had a couple (of experiences) that have made me believe. I'm sort of a control freak and for me death is a concept that's always been very difficult. Now I'm like, 'Wait a minute, I go on (in the spirit world)'. If there really is a different adventure afterwards, then that is a lovely thought." 





Jennifer Love Hewitt | Ghost Whisperer


Two months after the final episode of Ghost Whisperer aired, Jennifer was already back on TV starring in the sexy and scandalous Lifetime TV movie The Client List

With the success of this film, The Client List became a TV series with two seasons airing on Lifetime Network. Along with her lead role, Hewitt also served as Executive Producer on the show from 2012 to 2013 and even directed the season finale. 

Jennifer: "We had joked around, when we were doing the movie, about how fun it would be to turn this into a series and really get in deeper with the lives of the women in the spa and everything. So, when the movie did really well, I talked it over with everybody and said, "Let's pitch it and see what they think," and here we are." 

Jennifer Love Hewitt | The Client List

Female empowerment drew Love Hewitt to her role as Riley Parks in The Client List.


Jennifer: "I just thought it was really interesting, even with the movie. I think it's interesting to create empowerment in a woman, who essentially could feel powerless and who could find herself in danger and could look at the situation she's in, if she wanted to, as not very empowering. This is actually very powerful. She's making decisions and she's making them consciously, and she's growing sexually, emotionally, physically and mentally, in this job. She's connecting, in a real, human way... I was really interested in that. I just thought that that was really cool, and a neat message to send out." 

Jennifer Love Hewitt | The Client List

Jennifer met her husband, actor Brian Hallisay on the set of The Client List. In June 2013 Jennifer and Brian announced their engagement and were secretly married later that year. The couple welcomed their first child, Autumn James on November 26th, 2013. 

Jennifer: "I've always wanted to be a mom. I had a great relationship with mine. I'm ready to pass on to my child all the great love that my mom had for me." 

Jennifer balanced motherhood with acting starring in 23 episodes of the TV crime drama Criminal Minds from 2014 to 2015. 


Jennifer Love Hewitt pregnant with daughter Autumn

19 months after Autumn was born, Jennifer and Brian welcomed Atticus James. Their baby boy arrived on June 24th 2015 with Jennifer describing her 2nd pregnancy as 'magical'.  

Jennifer: "I'm grateful. It's not lost on me what a gift it is to be able to get pregnant."

Jennifer took a break from acting when her son arrived to focus on family. 

Jennifer: "I needed to take time off so I could enjoy being a kid with my kids and it's been really fun to do that. I feel like my kids make me better. They make you have to be a better person everyday. Everything becomes very clear. Anything that you thought was dramatic before, or really mattered before your kids, just doesn't when you have them." 



Jennifer Love Hewitt | 9-1-1

After her break from acting to raise her two children, last year Jennifer joined the cast for season 2 of the heart pounding FOX drama 9-1-1. Hewitt will reprise her role as 9-1-1 call centre operator Maddie Kendall when Season 2 continues with exciting and intense new episodes in 2019. 


Jennifer: "I really enjoyed the break, and I feel like now, the last few months, have gone back  into acting, it's really done a beautiful thing for me in that it's made everything that I do in my acting/entertainment life not less important but less like, "It's everything all the time," like it used to be. I also feel like I have new things to pull from as an actress that I didn't have before." 



Jennifer Love Hewitt & Brian Hallisay | The Client List 

Brian Hallisay played Jennifer's husband on The Client List and this year the two will celebrate their 6th wedding anniversary. In 2019 the couple will co-star once again when Brian guest stars on two upcoming episodes of 9-1-1

Jennifer's hubby Brian will play Maddie's abusive ex-husband Doug Kendall. 

Jennifer: "It was just lovely to go to work together... We both had never been able to play characters like this in our careers, these characters with dark, twisted things to them. And, so, that's been really fun for us. I've been really proud of him because I had no idea he is so creepy. It's been really nice to have him there."

Jennifer grew up on TV! From her television debut on Kids Incorporated in 1989 to Party of Five in 1995. Jennifer is the golden girl of drama TV. From Ghost Whisperer to The Client List, Criminal Minds to 9-1-1, her 30 year career has established Jennifer Love Hewitt as a Hollywood TV icon! 



As an actress, producer, director, singer, mother and wife Jennifer Love Hewitt embodies confidence, female empowerment and strength. 

Jennifer Love Hewitt gets our heart racing, when 9-1-1 returns to channel 7 on Monday April 22nd.

EMILY SKYE: James Cosmetics Lipsticks


EMILY SKYE James Cosmetics Lipsticks


Eco Angel and Fit Mum Emily Skye just launched her new range of Lipsticks.  

James Cosmetics co-founder Emily Skye announced her brand new lipsticks today, a trio of her favourite shades. 

Emily: "My new lipstick range redefines luxury, with a rich satin texture, the highly pigmented and moisturising formula will ensure a perfect look every time." 

Emily's new range of lipsticks includes the perfect nude, a vibrant red and a pinky nude. 

Emily: "I want you to feel confident when you put this lipstick on."





CAN'T RELATE Pinky Nude
In a world of negativity Emily is a champion of change. We chose this name because when you apply it, you should feel that you can't relate to the everyday, to the norm. Today isn't your day? Can't relate is the answer. Feel the negativity wash away as you apply the highly pigmented colour ready to take on the world. 

Emily: "Can't Relate is more of a pigmented pinky nude colour. And it's a beautiful colour. I wear that in the day with really light makeup or you could wear it with more smokey makeup, heavier makeup if you're going out to dinner."






DISTRACTED Red
A word that personifies the day to day with Emily. A truly inspired creative at heart, she's easily distracted, and once she saw this vibrant red, she was simply distracted. The fiercest colour in the collection, Distracted will ensure you light up any room, and direct the attention where it belongs. 

Emily: "So the absolute best red lipstick ever is called Distracted."



STANDARD The Perfect Nude
The ever classic, ever sought after, nude shade. Standard is something you'll often hear Emily say, and brings a little irony to the shade. At first glance it seems standard, but once you apply, and wear it, you'll notice it's anything but standard. Rather a creamy satin blend that perfectly highlights the lip and is perfect for an everyday look. 

Emily: "There is the absolute most perfect nude lippy called standard. And you look at that and think that's just a standard nude lipstick but there is so much more too it. Because it suits everyone. I love this colour." 




Emily's makeup and hair by Makeup Artist Mia Connor. 

James Cosmetics new lipsticks are available exclusively at JamesCosmetics.com

Co-founded by Emily Skye and her business manager Sam Mangan, James Cosmetics launched in 2017 with a range of luxury gold lip and eye masks. 





James Cosmetics is cruelty free and vegan.

ECO ANGEL: Jenna Dewan




JENNA DEWAN Dancing into a New Dawn 

ECO ANGEL 


Actress, Dancer, TV Host and Mother Jenna Dewan is our featured Eco Angel for December 2018. We first featured Jenna on the cover of our August 2012 issue. 6 years later Jenna is back front and centre - stronger, sassier, newly single and stepping up and into the spotlight. 


Jenna Dewan |  Mike Rosenthal


This year has been a difficult one for Jenna Dewan - the Step Up actress announced her separation with husband and co-star Channing Tatum back in April. With fans heartbroken to hear the news that their favourite Hollywood couple taking some time apart, Jenna's personal life was thrust into the spotlight like never before. 

Jenna: "It's challenging to go through a big change and have the whole world have an opinion about it." 

Jenna and Channing first met in 2006 when they auditioned for the dance flick Step Up. Their steamy chemistry was not just on-screen, the couple started dating after filming wrapped and quickly became the cutest and quite possibly Hollywood's most good looking couple since Brad and Jennifer. 

They married in 2009 and four years later their daughter Everly Tatum was born on May 31, 2013.

As the couple move forward as single parents, their #1 priority is co-parenting 5 year old daughter Everly. 

Jenna: "It's been a journey, and it's been transformation of myself - my needs and wants as a woman. I think everyone wants to hold on to what's in front of them, nut when you open your mind, saying, 'I want what's best for myself and my daughter,' you have to be okay with however that looks." 




Jenna Dewan | Yu Tsai 


As they say, when one door closes another one opens. Jenna's next opportunity was a guest starring role on the FOX tv show The Resident. Jenna joined the cast early this year and debuted as sharp and sophisticated medical rep Julian Booth when the show returned for Season 2 in October. 

Jenna's triumphant return to TV was welcomed by fans. After her successful recurring role as Lucy Lane on Supergirl (Season 1) and two cancelled tv shows Witches of East End and The Playboy Club - fans were eager to see Jenna on their tv screens again. 

Her courageous and confident character Julian caused quite a stir featuring in 7 episodes of The Resident this year, including an onscreen love affair with Doctor Devon Pravesh played by actor Manish Dayal.

This year also saw Jenna return to the stage as host of the popular NBC series World of Dance along with three expert judges Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough and NE-YO. World of Dance is a reality tv show, where dancers representing all styles of dance compete for a $1 million grand prize. 

Despite the success of the show, and after 2 years hosting, Jenna announced in October that she will not be returning for World of Dance Season 3 as host.  

Jenna: "To my World of Dance lovers! I will not be returning for to the show as host for season 3. But I won't be able to stay away for long, and plan to return to mentor contestants as much as possible. It has been an absolute thrill to be part of this incredible, groundbreaking show from the very beginning, and I am forever grateful to my NBC family, JLO, Derek Hough, NEYO and everyone involved in this journey. We are changing dance world and giving opportunities to dancers in ways I've only dreamed of! Much love to everyone." 


Summer is heating up, with a sexy new collection of dance essentials. After 2 years as the face of Danskin apparel, Jenna Dewan is stepping up her role from brand ambassador to fashion designer with the launch of her first capsule collection; Jenna Dewan x Danskin

Jenna: "I created this collection to move with women in everything they do." 

Jenna's new Danskin capsule collection features cropped tees, leggings, sports bras, hoodies, sweat pants and key pieces for dancers including leotards, bodysuits and a unitard - Jenna's favourite piece from the collection. 


Jenna Dewan x Danskin

Jenna: "I love a one piece. It's comfortable, easy to layer, sexy and hugs all the right places. This [Unitard] is my favourite of all the collection." 

Jenna brings her edgy sense of style, her decades of experience as a dancer and her love of pilates to create a collection that mixes street style with modern dance classics.  

Jenna: "I'm really into the dance/athletic/athleisure look that can translate from day to night feel. Street style that is also appropriate for dance class or gym. 

Jenna Dewan x Danskin collection is available at Danskin.com

As a self confessed Hippie, Jenna loves crystals for healing, eating a vegan diet, using clean and cruelty free beauty products and essential oils to improve her health and well being. 

As a fan of Young Living for many years, Jenna announced earlier this month that she's teaming up with Young Living to as their Savvy Minerals partner for 2019. Savvy Minerals by Young Living is a new mineral based makeup brand featuring quality cosmetics for the eco-conscious woman. 

Jenna: "I'm partnering with Young Living to represent the Savvy Minerals beauty Collection in 2o19. I have always been a fan of Young Living because it offers the highest quality and purest essential oils and essential oils based products, which is important for me and my focus on living a healthy clean lifestyle. Together with you I'm looking for a bright year ahead." 


Jenna Dewan | Savvy Minerals by Young Living

2019 is a bright year for the company, as Young Living celebrates their 25th anniversary. So it was the perfect time to recruit Jenna Dewan as the face of their new cosmetic line, Savvy Minerals. 

Jenna: "Happy Silver Anniversary. I'm thrilled to partner with Young Living Essential Oils in such a milestone year for the company. This is an important year to reflect back on the hereditary and history of Young Living and it's roots as a family farm and it's also a time to look forward at the innovation and vision that the company has as it leads the essential oils industry in a future of wellness. Happy 25 Young Living. You are looking better than ever."

Jenna: "I'm very excited because I clearly love beauty and makeup products. It was also very important for me to find a brand that is ethical, doesn't test on animals and that is free of chemicals. I feel good about wearing [the products] because they are healthy for my skin and body." 

As a busy working mom, Jenna prefers a quick 10 minute makeup routine, and trusts Savvy Minerals clean and simple products because she says "there's nothing worse than being overdone." 

Jenna: "The products are really good. The foundations are great colours and the lip glosses I legitimately wear every day. They are just really good shades. I've tried other natural products and lines that I didn't feel got the right look I was going for. With Savvy, the colouring is right and the quality is right." 



Jenna Dewan | Savvy Minerals by Young Living

With a new direction and drive to success Jenna is pursuing new projects and this year she  launched of her own production company Everhart Productions, named after her daughter Everly. 

She also wrapped two new films; The Wedding Year a new romantic comedy co-starring Sarah Hyland and 'Berlin I Love You' which Jenna filmed earlier this year in Germany. 

Jenna: "There are so many fun projects and lots of irons in the fire. I'm lit up at the moment - there are so many wonderful opportunities. In this day and age, and knowing the nature and climate of the entertainment business, I believe that if you want to do something, you've got to make it [happen] yourself." 

Up next for Jenna is the new Netflix TV series Mix Tape. Jenna has signed on to star in this musical drama and will film the pilot, for a release in 2019. 


Jenna Dewan | Dennis Leupold


This year was a challenging one, but through it all Jenna remained strong and resilient. 

Jenna: "People are like, 'How do you get through this?' I didn't run away from my feelings. I let myself cry I let myself grieve. This is one of those situations where I will see the light. The dawn is coming." 

And Jenna hasn't given up on love, just yet. 

Jenna: "I do believe in love still, but I also believe it begins with really digging deep and learning how to love yourself. And then I think you sort of transmute that out to attract the right partner. I think people who are meant to be sort of find each other." 


Jenna Dewan | Jeff Lipsky 

With her new found freedom, coming into her own and experiencing so much personal growth, Jenna is ready to take on a new year. 

Jenna: "I feel I've been on a wave of growth. It does look different; it's a new normal, and I really think we'll get used to that."  

Life looks alot different for Jenna in 2019 - with a new Netflix series, a new beauty brand partnership, a new clothing line and a new beau; Jenna is dancing into a new dawn.

FIT GIRL: Jessica Biel



GIAM X JESSICA BIEL 

Actress, Mother and Fit Girl Jessica Biel has partnered with Gaiam, as their new brand ambassador and this year she launches her own yoga clothing line; the first GAIAM X JESSICA BIEL capsule collection. 

Jessica: "Fitness and well-being have been part of my life forever. I grew up outdoors playing soccer, and I was a gymnast, so this is who I really am." 



Jessica first partnered with Gaiam in September 2017 as their official brand ambassador. 

Jessica: "I've been in love with yoga for years but my love affair with Gaiam is just beginning... We teamed up and I can't wait to share our first signature collection with you." 



Karen Murray, CEO of Sequential Brands Group (Gaiam's parent company) explains how Jessica was their top pick to represent the brand. 

Karen: "As soon as we started thinking about who would be the best ambassador for us, Jessica was at the top of our list. She's about as authentic as they come; she practices yoga every other day and she's a wife, mother, actress and activist. She really wants to put her mark on the brand; this is more than a one-season blip." 




Gaiam was founded 25 years ago in Jessica's home town of Boulder, Colorado and is committed to bringing "yoga, fitness and wellness" to everyone. 

Jessica: "It's the kind of company you can depend on for strong, affordable products, where you think, 'Oh, I know this company and it feels personable to me." 




With her new capsule collection, Jessica wants to share the joy of Yoga with others, so she co-designed key pieces that are versatile enough to wear everyday with her goal to create clothing that doesn't explicitly read as workout wear.

Jessica: "I started getting into yoga about 10 years ago through a close friend who was an instructor. At first I felt like, 'I can't do all those crazy poses,' and I still can't, but I'm not competing with anyone. I want to demystify yoga and bring it out to more women and men in the community, where it doesn't have to be intimidating." 




Jessica's 2018 signature capsule collection of Gaiam yoga and activewear features capris, leggings, bodysuits, tops and jackets that takes inspiration from the runways. Biel brings her sense of style and years of experience with red carpet fashion to this collection. 

Jessica: "We want to bring an elegance to athleisure and elevate it so that when you see the pieces, it looks familiar to what you see on the runways and you can think about wearing it out to dinner or to pick up your kids at school."
