SIMRIT BECOMES DAHLIANA'S FIRST AMBASSADOR
"SIMRIT" MUSICIAN, YOGINI, MOTHER, WIFE, AND CEO OF HER RECORD LABEL: SIMRIT KAUR MUSIC. With an otherworldly voice, four albums to boot with her fifth album coming out at the end of this September 2016, and chart topping accolades many times over at #1 on the iTunes Top World Music Charts for almost 3 weeks straight, and #3 on the Billboard Music Charts.....Simrit leads a full life with much travel.
When did you first start singing?
My first lessons were in the womb. My mother was a singer while she was pregnant, and she was traveling and singing with me in the womb. My mom tells me that when I was a baby, I would sit on the floor of her salon and sing. As a child I joined the church choir and school chorus. I started actual voice training towards the end of my high school years, and then in college I sang in an African drumming company while playing the African drums simultaneously. I then went on to study western and eastern classical vocals. Now, I have a vocal coach who is my rock when it comes to vocal technique and vocal health. Singing on the road the way I do is like being a professional athlete. I have to keep my body and voice in shape in order to deliver the way I like to deliver, night after night.
How do you describe the feeling when being on stage?
It's home to me. I LOVE playing with the band and singing. The band is family, for sure. When we are playing music together, all time and space disappears. I'm so happy when I'm playing music. I'm always at home anywhere when I'm playing music.

You live and travel on the road.Where do you feel most inspired to write your music?
I write music everywhere. While sometimes I sit in my music room and create, I can also write on the fly when ideas stream through at the most interesting times. Therefore I always keep a small recorder with me so that I can document those melodies, lyrics, and arrangement ideas. Sometimes I'll hear the whole orchestrated song in my head, therefore it's super important that I carry around a recorder. It's my best friend. I've written different songs in different states, countries, etc. The melodies, lyrics, mantras, and songs are inspired by different life experiences in different places.
What did you experience when you tried out Dahliana Skin Care the first time?
My skin felt incredibly smooth, looked brighter, and I actually felt a tingling sensation the very first time I put the products on my face. I actually felt the products working very deeply, and my skin looks better now than it did a year ago, two years ago, and even better now than it did when I was in college. What I LOVE about Dahliana products is that I can travel a lot(including lots of airplane flying), sometimes get very little sleep(even though good sleep is a part of my skin regime, along with lots of Kundalini Yoga), and also have a very full schedule.....but it always looks like I came out of the spa from a facial treatment. This is the magic of Dahliana. I LOVE that all the products actually contain a strong dose of live fruit stem cells and all the ingredients are raw. I get compliments DAILY on my skin. Dahliana is the real deal, and the products continue to work for me day in and day out.....the longer I have used the products, the better my skin has looked. It's that simple. The products really work.
What are your must have beauty items on tour that you can’t live without?
Hahahah! This is a funny question, because I use almost the entire line of Dahliana products. They are way more effective than anything I've ever tried....and I've tried tons of different products on my skin since the time I was a teenager and was dealing with some teenage breakouts. So hence, I've been making my skin a priority and have been trying different 'quality' products for many, many years. If I had to name my 'must- haves', I would say...... OVERNIGHT FRUIT LIFT, RESVERATROL ANTIOXIDANT SERUM, EYE RENEW CREAM, REFRESHING CITRUS CLEANSER, and the WILDFLOWER YOUTH SERUM. I use so many more of the Dahliana products, but these are my must-haves.
KAYLE THE VEGAN COWGIRL BECOMES DAHLIANA'S AMBASSADOR
How did you find your way to the vegan lifestyle?
It was a breast cancer diagnosis at the age of thirty that lead me to veganism. I changed my entire lifestyle to support my health and have remained vegan ever since.
What is the closest cause to your heart?
I'd probably have to say animal advocacy. While it's not often that you'll find me protesting or canvasing on behalf of animal rights, you can find me sharing vegan restaurants and delicious food to inspire people to try a plant based diet. I'd like to think I am doing activism (on behalf of animals) through food.
What are your favorite hobbies and creative fantasies?
I enjoy spending time outside in nature-- whether it's a leisurely hike along the South Fork of the Yuba River near where I live or riding a beach cruiser along a bike path. Nature gives me hope, quiets my mind and inspires me to do more good in the world. In the summertime you can likely find me tending my veganic backyard garden.
How do you spend your days off?
I love to sleep in. A perfect day would be eating out at one of my favorite vegan-friendly eateries for lunch and attending a live folk music concert in the evening.
That's a no-brainer...I LOVE vegan Thai Iced Tea!
Tell us about your vegan blog?
I started my blog in 2013 because I was inspired to help people after going through my journey with breast cancer. My goal was to share animal-free meals and products to prove that living a vegan lifestyle is fun, easy and delicious. My blog includes recipes, reviews as well as many interviews with prominent people in the vegan community. You may visit my vegan blog here: Cowgirls + Collard Greens
What are your must have Dahliana products and how long have you used Dahliana?
I was first introduced to Dahliana in 2013 when my skin needed a new vegan skincare. I fell in LOVE with all the Dahliana products over the years. My absolute favorite product is the Seabuckthorn Berry Creme. I use it as a moisturizer underneath my makeup everyday. I love the smell and smooth feeling on my skin. I recently started using the Eye Cream and am loving its silkiness and lovely results. Every night I use the Daily Therapy Scrub before I put on my Seabuckthorn Cream. I am a huge fan of the Daily Therapy Scrub.
I also recently discover the Beauty Berry Collagen Booster and love using this a few nights a week on my face and neck.
