Java Love Coffee Roasting Co | 244 Bellevue Avenue + 49 Church Street, Montclair
IG Handle: @DoYouJavaLove
Giveaway Gift and Value: Keurig machine with box of Java Love Bad Ass KCup Pods ($125 value)
Whether uptown or downtown in Montclair, there is a cozy corner to enjoy a cup of joe at Java Love. All the coffee is either organic and/or sustainably farmed, fair trade, or rainforest alliance-certified, which means the best of the best. On top of serving customers a daily dose of caffeine, Java Love also serves the surrounding community by hosting coffee classes, live music, game nights, and other events — but for those days when no amount of caffeine is worth braving the outdoors, one lucky winner can DIY it with a Keurig machine + box of Java Love Bad Ass KCup Pods.
Portray Salon | 551 Valley Road, Upper Montclair
IG Handle: @portraysalon
Giveaway Gift and Value: A $75 Gift Certificate to Portray Salon
Portray is a one-stop shop for all things hair care, with expert stylists providing cuts, coloring, keratin treatments, hair masks, and extensions — but of course, self-care doesn’t end with hair. Portray also has a variety of nail services, including manicures, pedicures, tips, and acrylics. The winner will receive a $75 gift certificate to splurge on the service (or services) of their choosing.
The Green Room | 20 Church Street, Montclair
IG Handle: @thegreenroomnj
Giveaway Gift and Value: 1000mg Full Spectrum Tincture
Self-care looks different for everyone — and for some, it means winding down with a little bit of CBD. Since 2019, The Green Room has been leading NJ locals to compliant, lab-tested, and trusted CBD products out of its 10 locations (and another one on the way in Newark). The full-spectrum oil can slip easily into your daily routine: your morning coffee, evening sweet treat, or even topical body cream.
The Ethical Mattress Co. | 387 Millburn Avenue, Millburn
IG Handle: @ethicalmattress
Giveaway Gift and Value: A pair of personalized + embroidered down alternative pillows (queen size) from The Pillow Bar ($250 value)
If there’s one thing humans will never universally agree on, it’s this age-old debate: fluffy pillows versus hard pillows. The Ethical Mattress Co. — a locally-owned sleep shop in Millburn with certified natural + organic mattresses — is giving one MG reader the opportunity to choose for themselves, with a pair of personalized + embroidered alternative pillows from The Pillow Bar. Bonus gift, because it’s Christmas in July: you’ll also get noticeably better sleep (you’re welcome!)
Lure Lash | 416 Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair
IG Handle: @Lurelash
Giveaway Gift and Value: $100 gift certificate
If eyebrows are sisters, then eyelashes are their best friends — kind of like the pair of besties that started Lure Lash. Since its inception in 2012, Lure Lash has grown into a state-wide staple for eyelash extensions, with locations in Montclair, Madison, Somerville, and beyond. Services range from a variety of eyelash sets (from classic to mega-volume), to lifts, brow tints, and even light therapy facials; and one lucky MG reader will have their choice of treatment with a $100 gift certificate.
Don’t forget to follow @themontclairgirl + the IG accounts of the participating businesses — and you can receive a bonus entry for each giveaway in our Christmas in July series by following our sister-brand @theasburygirl on Instagram! The winner will be announced via our IG Stories the day after the respective giveaway.
