Wet n’ Wild Beauty: Cruelty free on a budget

Y’all. I don’t think I’ve been so excited to blog about products…ever. In a previous post I talked about making the transition to cruelty free products and how it’s more affordable than ever, and the options are seemingly endless! I remembered Wet N’ Wild nail polish from when I was growing up, and after seeing a…

Cold remedies that work!

Man. January was ROUGH on some folks; present company included. It seemed at the beginning of the month was merely the feeling of coming down with something, but my immune system was a rock star and fought off whatever was attempting to ail me. Then finally, the boxing gloves were gently placed on the ground and…

Going cruelty-free: Beauty with a conscience.

Happy 2017, friends! Over the last year, I’ve been slowly integrating cruelty free and in many cases, more natural products into my beauty and skincare routines. Beyond a moral discrepancy, really getting into ingredients and long term potential effects became a concern for me. While I enjoy expanding on my artistry skills on occasion, for…

Holy Grail alert: Vermont’s Original Bag Balm

Of all the beauty products I love, most of my very favorites are multitaskers. Yesterday, while picking up a product I needed to replenish from my local drugstore, this tiny green package caught my eye. It looked familiar, and I recalled instantly that I’d read about Vermont’s Original Bag Balm sometime ago, and that it was awesome…

Lemon Ginger Agave goodness!

I’m over winter. Winter is a season where I find I’m constantly on the hunt for things to make it tolerable: staying hydrated, warm, cozy, and healthy.  The holiday hustle and bustle can have our health taking a bit of a backseat, but fret not! I have a simple, delicious, and bountiful solution! I have…

Fall 2016: Stuff I’m really digging.

These kinds of posts are my favorites. In the world of beauty, so frequently I find that bloggers get caught up in “what’s new”and I get it; beauty is ever evolving and we’ve gotta keep up. But sometimes, I like to dig into product that’s been around for a bit. For real, for real… I’m…

Shoe Fanaticism.

Most of you are probably familiar with TOMS and their One for One movement, but if you’ve never had the pleasure of owning a pair – check your pulse. They’re COMFY. Like, eight to ten hours of doing makeup and being on your feet comfy. My first pair of glitters I’ve long retired, and after some time without them,…

Fall Skincare routine updates – it’s that time!

So it’s that time of year, again… Basics rejoice! It’s pumpkinuggsscarvessweaterspalooza! I feel like I missed something there. Alas, with the season comes the need to refresh our skincare routines and the keyword here is HYDRATION. I’m looking at all you oily skinned girls, too. WE NEED MOISTURE. Last week I posted a rather amusing…

Pineapple is my hero fruit!

  Really, August?! Yep. I’ve been hit hard with some serious sinus/allergy gunk and despite my regular treatment, nothing seems to be helping. Continuing with my usual habit of infusing my water, I added fresh pineapple. Besides it tasting amazing it also contains remarkable benefits that, gasp, will help me in giving this sinus junk a beat…

Birthday Beauty Haul

Oh mercy. Birthday money. Naturally I took to the interwebs and did some homework on some of the best and brightest of 2016, and on a few products that I actually need (really…sunscreen is a necessity) and I’m super stoked to share with you all what I’ve picked up! Let me first say this: never have I ever…
