Ann Danilevich is the Founder and Body Care Curator of Greenaby Body Care, an online boutique specializing in truly green, natural and organic body care products that are good for you and the planet. The new Vancouver-based green beauty boutique spotlights innovative Canadian eco beauty brands and connects health conscious consumers with a variety of Canadian products.

In addition to being a passionate advocate of natural non-toxic skin care, Ann is also studying holistic nutrition at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. She believes that you should feed your skin in the same way you would your body, with nourishing natural and organic ingredients!  (We agree with this statement 100% considering your body is your largest organ!)

……………………………………………………

First 3 things you do when you get up in the morning:
Drink warm lemon water with chlorella and a hint of maple syrup.
Say a couple of affirmations / set intentions.
Check my email and social media feeds (I just can’t help it!).

 ……………………………………………………

Where or when were you were the happiest:
Whenever I am near or on the water: walking the sea wall, paddle boarding, or sailing.

 ……………………………………………………

Best advice you have ever received:
Do what you love, and the rest will follow.

…………………………………………………… 

Favourite beauty product:
Face oil/serum. It’s a game changer. I alternate between Belmodo’s The Dew and Helena Lane’s Argan + Frankincense Serum

 ……………………………………………………

Top 3 “must haves” in your fridge:
Hemp hearts, organic free-range eggs, and a TON of veggies!

 ……………………………………………………

Your favourite way to spend your free time:
Having brunch with friends, reading, walking the seawall, or relaxing in Deep Cove.

 ……………………………………………………

Place you are dying to go:
Ireland and Bali.

 ……………………………………………………

What is your favourite book:
I generally read non-fiction. Two little books I tend to re-read and recommend to people are:

How to Be Happy, Dammit: A Cynic’s Guide to Spiritual Happiness by Karen Salmansohn

Food Rules by Michael Pollen

 ……………………………………………………

Best health or lifestyle habit:
Walking everywhere, whenever possible. It’s great exercise, and you end up noticing things about the city that you would normally miss while driving or biking.

 ……………………………………………………

Share your favourite smoothie/juice recipe:
Banana, Mango, and Blueberry Smoothie

Ingredients:
Hemp milk (make your own – just take about a table spoon of hemp hearts and about ¾ cup of water and blend on high)
1 ripe banana
1 ripe Ataulfo mango (the smaller yellow type)
about ¾ cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
½ teaspoon of spirulina (optional)
1 table spoon of raw cocoa powder (optional)

Directions:
Put all the ingredients into a blender, blend, pour, and enjoy!
