A Look Inside The Vegan Cuts Spark-tacular July Beauty Box

Monday, August 8, 2016

Oh yes, you guys know the deal... it's Vegan Cuts Beauty Box review time!
You're probably very familiar with Vegan Cuts (and my obsession with them) from
my past Snack, Beauty, & Yoga Box reviews. But incase you live under a rock--
Vegan Cuts is a monthly subscription box & online marketplace that delivers the highest quality
of vegan beauty, fashion, and food products from the most honorable companies in the industry right
to your door for as low as $18.50 a month + free US shipping ($8 to Canada + $15 internationally).

Inside each beauty box you will find 4-7 sample or full sized products, such as new items from
brands you already love, the next big thing to fall in love with, and buzzworthy products that your
friends keep talking about. All of which are curated with love by some of your favorite leading
people in the vegan community. If you like what you find inside of your box (trust me.. you will),
you can easily pick up the full sized version from the Vegan Cuts Marketplace!

July's beauty box was a "a beautiful explosion" themed.. 4th of July- Duh!
I can honestly say that I discovered some new products, got to try some that were on my radar,
and fell in love with some new favorites in this months box! I'm a big fan of the mini sizes
that were in this box as well, since they are perfect for summer travel getaways!
Now, let's see what's inside...

As many of you already know, I am the biggest fan of aromatherapy oil rollers!
I love how convenient they are to keep in your bag for on-the-go relief. This scent in particular
helps ease motion sickness, tummy woes, morning sickness, and anxious feelings. I'm obsessed
with this minty blend, and how alert yet calm it makes me feel. Zoe Organics also uses
100% organic ingredients, which is always a huge plus for me. Love it!
$14 value

This plant-based serum seriously covers all problematic skin concerns! Not only does it help
heal chronic conditions like excema, acne, and psoriasis; but it also results in glowing smooth skin,
while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. This Modicum serum is formulated with medicinal
and nutritious plants, that will make your skin feel brand new. Including sea buckthrone berry oil,
black cumin seed oil, helichrysum essential oil, rose dimiscus, and more.
I am a sucker for a  luxurious serum, & I'm totally loving this one so far. 
$20 value

If you know me in real life, you know that I am always applying shea butter on my hands. 
It keeps my hands (and body, of course) so soft and hydrated for hours, even after washing them.
So obviously I'm loving this mini sized lavender vanilla (ugh, my favorite) softly scented shea butter from Nature's Shea Butter. Not only is it 100% all natural and organic shea butter from northern
Ghana, but the certified organic lavender essential oil puts it over the top. Lavender is the perfect oil
for instant relaxation, relieving headaches and stress, healing burns or wounds, and even
reducing high blood pressure. This is absolutely essential to keep in my little bag of tricks!
$2.75 value

Moisturizer, sunscreen and makeup primer? Check, check, check!
How could you not love 3 in 1 products, right?! Especially ones that protects against damaging
UVA and UVB rays, while calming the skin with anti-inflammatory properties like this one from Suntegrity. Free of parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, synthetic dyes, sulfates, mineral
oils, and more. This non-greasy, award winning, happy citrus scented travel sized
sunscreen was a great one to get in my box this month.
$4.95 value

If there was a cult for lip scrubs, I would happily join it/lead it. I've always been an avid lip scrubber
and advocate, but I fell in love with the push up packaging of this one from Molly Rose.
Not only does is the smell to die for, but it's so natural that you can even lick it off.
Made my lips feel silky smooth, with no gross after taste. 10 out of 10 for me!
$7 value

I'm a big fan of dual purpose products, like this lip and cheek tint from Bodisafe. It just makes
life easier sometimes, ya know? I'm usually a powder highlighter kinda gal, but I really loved
the creamy shea butter texture of this one. It's even great to layer with a powder for maximum effect.
A few things that won me over besides the all natural and organic ingredients, is that it's free
of parabens, gluten, mineral oil, talc, formaldehyde, harmful emulsifiers, phthalates, and cruelty!
It's such a lovable color as well for all skin tones.
$20 value

Hello there mojito mint, I've been dying to try you! Now, I personally buy fluoride free toothpaste
(which Hello also makes), but I was willing to give this cute little guy a try. I love that it is in a
bpa free tube and that the formula is free of dyes, parabens, artificial sweeteners, triclosan, and
microbeads. Not to mention that it is super yummy, you'll almost want to eat it (don't judge me).
$1 value

Digging My Nails Into Red Carpet Manicure's Pro Kit

Wednesday, June 29, 2016

About three years ago I became obsessed with getting gel manicures (thanks Nicole Alyse).
Sure, it was so much easier than repainting my nails every few days.. and yeah, it helped them
grow longer somehow. But, I dreaded getting the polish removed, and how weak it made my
nails feel after. I would never give them much time to breathe, and would instantly cover
my brittle nails back up with another gel color. My gel addiction lasted for about a year, until
I just needed to take a break for the health of my nails (and wallet).
Well, my faith in gel manicures has been restored thanks to Red Carpet Manicure!

Now, it's still not something I want to do all of the time, but it's so great to have an option that
1- doesn't leave my nails feeling unrecognizable after it's removed, and 2- that I can do myself
at home. Thanks to my friends at Red Carpet Manicure, I now have the option to do my own
gel mani in a much healthier way. The Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit literally has everything you
need to do a pro gel mani yourself. From the tools, to remover, and even a professional LED light! 

I'm so in love with the colors of their Escape to Paradise collection! I always gravitate towards
the brighter, and bolder colors. For this look (which lasted 2+ weeks), I used Frolic In The Sand 
and made some fun polka dots (excuse my lack of creative nail artistry) with Until the Sun-Sets.

Just follow these simple steps to get red carpet ready:

1- File your nails with the provided emory board, and push back the cuticle
with the flat end of the orangewood stick.

2- Place the buffer pad onto the cuticle tool to prepare the surface of the nail,
by lightly removing the shine.

3- Using the white pads provided, and the Purify cleanser, give a wipe to clean the nail. 

4- Apply Prep Max Adhesion Sanitizer to your clean nails. It will quickly evaporate,
and keep your nail color from getting bubbles. 

5- Apply a thin coat of the Structure base coat gel to your 4 fingernails, while leaving the
thumbs to go in together last. Cure each time for 30 seconds using the LED light.

6- Apply the Red Carpet color you wish to use in a thin, even coat to your 4 nails (again, leaving the thumbs for last). Cure them up in the professional LED light for 30 seconds. Repeat this round for a second coat, and bolder color. Wipe away any mistakes on the skin with the cleanser before you cure!

7- Apply a thin coat of the Brilliance seal and shine top coat to your 4 nails (yep, you know it- thumbs last). With this step, you will be curing them in the LED light for 45 seconds. 

8- Use the Purify cleanser to remove the tacky residue, and voila!-- You and your salon
quality gel manicure is now ready to hit the red carpet!

Removal was so much easier than I expected, or have experienced in a salon (where they rush the process). First, you'll want to buff the surface of the nail to help break the top coat seal.
Next, simply apply the Erase gel remover on a cotton ball, and place on top of the nail. Then
you will want to wrap the nail (with the cotton) in aluminum foil, and leave on for 10-15 minutes.
When you unwrap the foil, you will find that most of the work has been done for you,
because the polish has mostly come off on it's own. Use the scraping tool to gently remove
any remaining color from the nail. Make sure to massage some of the Revitalize Nourishing
Cuticle Oil into your cuticle and nail to give it some extra love!

Peace, Love, and Happy Nails,

My Top Tips For Staying Fit While Traveling

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Happy International Yoga Day! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that I've
been a little travel bug lately. I was barely home for most of May! I headed to Florida with my sister Nicole Alyse, to take our mom away for mother's day. Before I knew it our trip was over, I came
home for two days, and was off yet again- this time to Quebec City to celebrate my tenth (yes, tenth)
anniversary with Frank. I never wanted my journeys to end. But I was ready to get back to my
normal routine at home, especially my workout routine!

I know I may not look strong, slim, or super fit- but I feel it. And to me, that is more important.
I’ve been a gym rat for some time now, and always try to find a way to stay active daily. Even if
I can’t get to the gym that day. There is no excuse to not move your body daily! Going on vacation
(especially with others) can be really challenging to your workout routine. You are in a unfamiliar
place, without your normal recourses, and can easily fall into the “It’s ok, I’m on vacation”
mindset. While resting the mind and body often is very important, there is no reason that you
should accept self sabotaging what you’ve worked so hard at for a short period of time.
Do something, do ANYTHING!

Being active in a new place shouldn’t be daunting, it should be nothing less than exciting. I wanted
to share some of my personal tips that make working out, while traveling easy and fun. I hope
these spark a little inspiration for you to stay active, while on vacation or not. Do you have any
tips for being active while on-the-go? I would love to know what they are!

 Stepping outside of the gym/studio!
If you are use to working out at a gym or studio, going somewhere without that familiar
territory can feel pretty scary. Once you realize that you can literally turn any place into a gym,
a creative flow comes over you and you find yourself welcoming the challenge.
Try out some of these ideas:

- Got a layover? Do some laps in the airport! Use your carry on as extra weight, and go explore
the terminal. Time will go by so much faster than just sitting around waiting. Plus, any stress
and frustration that naturally comes with flying will be replaced by happy endorphins. Win!

- Is dancing your thing? No matter where you travel to, chances are that there is a dance club near by.
At the very least, a bar with a jukebox. Dancing the night away after dinner will help burn off
those calories, and won't feel like a workout at all.

- Is that a yoga studio on the corner of your hotel?! If classes are more your scene, there’s a
strong chance that there will be some sort of pilates, yoga, cycling, etc. club near by your
new location. Check for a first time student discount, or Groupon to save some money.
Try something new!

- If your hotel doesn’t have a gym facility for you to use, turn your hotel room into a gym!
You don't need any fancy equipment for squats, push-ups, wall sits, jumping jacks, and crunches.
Hey, you can even do some laps around the hallways by just walking around the hotel. Make use
of those soda cans they stock up in the mini fridge (no, not by drinking them), but by using
them as mini hand weights. Sure they are light, but it’s better than nothing!

- No matter where you go, I can guarantee that there will be a park or playground nearby.
Hey, monkey bars are not just for kids you know! You can practice some handstands against a
tree, do some chest presses, arm dips, etc. against a bench, do some deep stretching, jumping
jacks, and so much more with just your body and the everyday items around you.
Be playful with yourself and use your imagination!

- Is there a beach, lake, or hotel pool where you are going?
Do I really need to explain how you can use this to your advantage?! ;)

Bring the gym with you!
Set yourself up for success by bringing even one exercise tool that makes life easier for you.
Come prepared by incorporating some of these tips:

- Everyone has room in their luggage for a jump rope, resistance band, frisbee, fitness tracker, or
yoga mat. Personally, I never travel without a yoga mat. I was super excited to take my
new La Vie Boheme Avanti Travel Yoga Rug with me to the beach when I was in Florida!
Prepare to get stopped often during your practice by people stopping to ask where your mat is
from. The travel yoga rug folds up in a carry-on perfectly, and is super lightweight..
plus it doubles as a spot to lay out on for sunbathing (hehe).

- Laptop, iPad, tablet, or iPhone.. no matter what streaming device you have, you can use them
to watch a fun online workout. From fitness sites to Youtube, finding someone to guide you
through a workout is only a click away. If you have a laptop, just bring your favorite workout
CD with you to pop in, and you are good to go at anytime!

- Always set yourself up for success by packing at least one workout outfit and pair of running shoes, no matter the destination. It’s easy to find an excuse when you “forgot” your sneakers at home.
How convenient… *eye roll*. Thanks so much to Sweaty Betty for sending me these
Zero Gravity Run Tights and Simhasana Yoga Sweat top I'm wearing below for my Canada trip!
I could have lived in this outfit the entire time, it was so cozy. These tights literally feel like you
are wearing nothing. Causing you to feel weightless and keep running, uninterrupted by
adjusting annoying regular run tights. By having these with me in my suitcase, it made me WANT to
workout for the simple fact that I just wanted to be in them because they make me feel good.

Get lost, and explore!
Especially if you are staying in a new place. There is no better way to get to know the new area
you are in, than to wander. This is always a huge must for me when traveling. Try these tips:

- Walk. EVERYWHERE. If you were blessed enough to have two legs, make sure you use them.
Nothing is really ever “too far away”. Skip the cabs, bus, and any public transportation if you
can. Frank and I are huge on this factor when we travel. We never take any public transportation
when we travel if possible. On our recent trip to Quebec city, we saw so much because we never
stopped walking. We explored so much of the city on foot, and walked 10 miles or more per day. 

- Rent a bike or paddleboat as an alternate form of transportation, and use a map if you have to. You may discover a restaurant or store that you would never have stumbled upon otherwise.
Take a new path and explore the neighborhood. You'll blend in and look like a local.

- Find the local trail, hiking hot spot, or park path to jog on. Treadmills are fun, but being
active in nature inspires you to go further and push harder. Jog, walk, run. It doesn’t matter.
Just move, and don’t be afraid to get dirty.

Today's food is tomorrow's fuel!
Eating well and putting yourself first plays a large role in your desire to stay active while away.
If you tell yourself that you “slipped up and the day is ruined”, you are planting the seed for
self-destruction. Besides, associating guilt with eating is no way to live.

- Meal plan to prevent sabotage. Make sure to stock up the fridge right away if your room is
lucky enough to have a kitchenette. This also includes packing healthy snacks to have on hand
while out, and checking out the menu of where you plan on eating to “pre order” in your mind. 

- Road tripping? Fill your cooler up with pre-made veggie sandwiches, fresh fruits, fruit squeeze
pouches, nuts, plenty of water, and all of the non processed snacks you can manage. Pack more
than plenty, and plan ahead. There is no excuse for pulling off the exit to go to a McDonalds,
unless it’s to use the bathroom!

- Never leave home without your “blender ball” shaker. It will make life easy when it comes
to getting your fix of protein or green packs, and to make sure that you are not missing out on
vital fuel pre or post workout. Just add water or plant-based milk, and shake it up!

- If you are flying, make sure to bring plenty TSA friendly snacks. Who want’s to spend $7.00 on
a gross “fruit cup” at the airport? Not me. Matt’s Munchies got me through my last flights, and
are my newest obsessions! They are crazy yummy, and the perfect size to keep in your bag on-the-go. My favorite is the heavenly Island Mango. Yummmm.

- Start saving a food budget ahead of time. Your wealth is in your health. So make eating right
a priority when traveling. Don’t skip meals to save money, or pick the least nutritious item on
the menu for the sake of convenience. Hold your body to the highest standards that it deserves.
Don’t let going out to eat with a group of friends who don’t live by your lifestyle choices
intimidate you either. Chances are your server and the chef will be happy to substitute,
and tweak your order to accommodate your needs for staying on track.

Peace, Love, and Fitness,

Inside The Goddess Provisions Magical March Box

Monday, April 18, 2016

You guys are clearly aware of my Vegan Cuts addiction by now, right?
Well, the addiction just got upped a 100 levels… From the beautiful brains behind Vegan Cuts
comes Goddess Provisions— a monthly subscription box tailored to the high-vibed, positive
energy obsessed, cosmic crystal babe! Not to mention each box is guaranteed 100%
vegan and cruelty free. With a personal passion for crystals, spirituality, higher consciousness,
and basically everything new aged.. it’s clear why I think the Goddess Provisions box is
a must-have for aiding in a well balanced life. Mind. Body. Spirit. 

Each Goddess Provisions subscription box comes with 4-6 full-sized products for $33
a month (with discounts for longer commitments!). Each month you will receive the very best
quality of crystals, super food snacks, yummy teas, apothecary beauty, aromatherapy essentials,
and everything you need to enhance your path of spiritual growth and nurture your divine goddess energy, all curated by the vegan experts. With March’s themed Goddess Provisions box
being “Self-Awakening”, I can tell this is the start of a beautiful, sparkling druzy filled relationship!
Let’s see what’s inside…

With 96 recycled pages waiting to be filled, this rad little journal is so lightweight and perfect to
keep in your bag at all times for when inspiration or moments of gratitude strike! Or, you can
use it to “vent out all of the icky thoughts that don't serve you.”, as Joyologist suggests doing.
Daily journaling is a great practice to help build a healthy mind, and clear thoughts to move
creative energy. The red color of this badass little journal also sparks power and confidence.
Fill it up with nothing less than awesomeness!

Fun fact: I’ve been learning about house blessing and cleansing from my mom since I was a
little girl! I am a firm believer in the fact that energy needs to be circulated and cleansed often,
especially in the home. This house blessing and cleansing kit from Good Juju is an easy
and approachable way to cleanse your own home if you are new to this concept. Along with the
beautiful packaging, comes a well detailed instruction sheet on how to remove the negative energy
in and around your house and property with a six-step ceremony. Negative situations like bad luck,
death in the house, divorce, or possibly an outside force that has taken control of your home
should always be cleared of their dark energy in order to maintain a healthy and happy home.
You will also want to bless and bring in positive energy with a cleansing ceremony before events
like moving into a new home, hosting a special event, or after completing some remodeling or
redecorating, etc. Full of majikal herbs and crystals, the Good Juju kit will help bless,
clear and remove negative energy from the home, your land, and from yourself.
The house blessing and cleansing herb kit also makes for a perfect housewarming gift!
Below is a list of what this majikal kit contains, and their benefits straight from
House of Good JuJu’s website:

Sage- Neutralizes existing negativity and makes a psychic shield against tensions.
Traditionally, sage rises spiritually above the mundane world and forms a protective shield. Historically used by Native Americans to clear the air of negativity.

Frankincense and Myrrh resin –Brings successful ventures, cleansing, purifies the home.
Is used in many Temples throughout the world. Removes negative influences.
It brings protection. Very sacred.

Cedar Sprigs- Dispels negativity and provides protection. Brings abundance to a home.

Angelica- Very powerful protection herb - protects against negative energy and attracts positive energy; creates a barrier against negative energy.

Caraway- Brings good health, love, protection, mental powers, and anti-theft.

Chamomile- Promotes love, healing, and reducing stress. Remove hexes, curses and spells. Increases money coming into the home. De-stressing, meditation, and restful sleep.

Lavender- Clears out energies that will not leave a space. Traditionally used to neutralize bad frequencies during cleansing rituals. Lavender is also known to be relaxing, so having it around the house can prevent negative energy before it starts.

Rose Petals- Provide a loving vibe that surround your home. Makes for happy relationships.

Mugwort- Keeps evil spirits from entering your dwelling. Protects and cleanses.

Juniper - Negates negativity. By purifying negative energy in the environment and from other
people, Juniper cleanses energies harmful to good health. Juniper can also transform
negative emotions into positive.

Sea Salt- With salt's extreme ability to draw away remnants of psychic and negative energy, including "ghost manifestations" of many different kinds, salt has always been used for psychic clearing and for purification. It is used to cleanse houses and temples. Draws away unhealthy spirits and unwanted visitors. Provides a protective circle around your home.

Palo Santo Wood- Palo Santo is enjoyed by many for its energetically cleansing and healing properties. Keeps energies grounded and clear. Raises your vibration in preparation for meditation and allows for a deeper connection to the Source of all creation. It is also said that Palo Santo enhances creativity and brings good fortune to those who are open to its magick.

Black Tourmaline- Clears and balances the Chakras, forming a protective shield around the body and space. It cleanses, purifies and transforms energy into a lighter vibration.

Clear Quartz- Is a stone of clarity which dispels negativity and clears away negative energy. It can be used to purify and clarify on the spiritual, mental, and physical planes. It is powerfully protective because of these properties. It provides a Guardian Energy of White Light.

I don’t know what I would do without aromatherapy, and often look to scent for a quick mood boost. I have never seen aromatherapy in patch form, and I am totally into the convince of these Purple
Frog Patches. You can stick them anywhere, or take them with you on-the-go to release organic essential oils for a long lasting spa-like experience. I could smell the perky scent combo of
peppermint and eucalyptus through my Goddess Provisions box before I even opened it (I was already in love). These are so versatile, chemical-free, and a great substitute for those synthetic air fresheners that just mask odors with chemicals. (Helloooo, that is going into your lungs!)
Oh, and Purple Frog Patches are also the world’s only non-toxic, personal air
freshener— that sealed the deal for me!

Omega-3’s in 75% organic/fair trade dark chocolate, candied walnut, and toasted flax seed form?!
Yes please! Each yummy bag of omega munch provides you with your daily dose of
omega-3”s (2,000 mg), and fills your body with protein, antioxidants, and fiber in a decadent form. It’s true as Nicobella says, that you will get a burst of natural energy from just a single piece of
omega munch. And no- that burst does not come from sugar, but rather the high theobromine content
of their pure dark chocolate. Nicobella also is a stand-up brand, that has many of the checkmarks I look for in a brand. Such as organic, non-gmo verified, soy-free, gluten-free, fair trade, sustainable
packaging (they are FSC certified), no added flavors or processed sugars, and they also
donate 5% of sales to their favorite animal organizations!

Sticking to the theme of self awareness in this month’s Goddess Provisions box, this howlite pendant from Chakra Love is the cherry on top of a majikal box. After all, howlite is often used for attaining awareness to better receive messages from spirit guides and the higher-self. Howlite balances
the crown chakra, helps with releasing emotional ties, is used in crystal healing to relieve pain,
as well as helps to expand the soul and consciousness upward. I love how simple, yet detailed
the design of this necklace is. It really goes with any outfit! Energy flow on-the-go.

For $33.00 a month (as well as some other plan options to choose from), you can get
your very own divine goddess energy filled lifestyle box sent straight to your home.
Goddess Provisions ships free in the US, $10.00 in Canada, and worldwide for $20.00.

"We're "busy" just like everyone else on this beautiful planet but we take the time to manifest  journal, meditate, frolick around in nature, pet kittens, practice yoga, have reiki healing sessions, do tarot card readings, drink green juice, write out the things we're grateful for, check the astrology forecast and charge our crystals under the full moon. If you enjoy these simple pleasures too,
you're going to feel like our monthly box was curated for you by a true soul sister."- GP

CLICK HERE (so GP knows that I sent you) to subscribe, and start or enhance
your spiritual practice with each and every curated Goddess Provision box of love!

Peace, Love, and Goddess Energy,

Moody Double Denim Blues

Monday, April 11, 2016

There's just something about double denim that compliments a gloomy NYC day!
I've been so obsessed with these killer denim pieces from True Religion lately. They are such closet
staple items on their own, or together (like here!). This was such a gloomy NYFW day, that adding
a cozy layered cardigan was a must. I can't wait for spring to really show itself here in NYC,
so I can shed some of these layers & brighten up these baby blues...

What I'm Wearing:
Jeans + Denim Top  c/o True Religion

Inside the Vegan Cuts February Beauty Box

Thursday, March 10, 2016

Oh yeah, back at it again with another Vegan Cuts Beauty Box review for you guys! 
You probably already know plenty about Vegan Cuts (and my obsession with them) from
my past Snack, Beauty, & Yoga Box reviews. But incase you are not familiar-- Vegan Cuts
is a monthly subscription box & online marketplace that delivers the highest quality of vegan
beauty, fashion, and food products from the most honorable companies in the industry right
to your door for $19.95 a month +  free US shipping ($8 to Canada + $15 internationally).

Inside you will find 4-7 sample or full sized products such as new items from brands you
already love, the next big thing to fall in love with, and buzzworthy products that your friends
keep talking about. All of which are curated with love by some of your favorite leading people
in the vegan community.  If you like what you find inside of your box (trust me.. you will),
you can easily pick up the full sized version from the Vegan Cuts Marketplace!

February's beauty box was a "winter beauty wonderland" of a thrill to get, since all of the
contents were full-sized items! Giving this box a major value, and a super luxurious feel. All items
in this month's box are very universal and super impressive. Each product really complements
the seasonal transition of winter to spring. I definitely discovered some new favorites inside of the Vegan Cuts February beauty box, that will become staples in my beauty routine.
Check out what was inside...

Harvey Prince Yogini Rollerball Perfume- $23 
I have never heard of Harvey Prince before, so I was excited to discover this product inside
of my Vegan Cuts Beauty Box. In doing a little research on the brand, I found that Harvey Prince
keeps their eco-conscious products free of harmful chemicals like phthalates, sulfates,
parabens, benzene, GMOs, and triclosan. HP only uses the finest organic ingredients that
are FDA-certified safe, and made with food grade coloring. So yes, pregnant women
can feel safe about smelling good too. Totally into all of that! 

Obviously, I’m obsessed with the name of this fragrance— Yogini! While this scent is definitely
an acquired one for most, it’s a fantastic stress-relieving scent alternative to an essential oil blend.
Yogini is a light, long lasting, and calming scent with an earthy and floral touch. With notes
of sandalwood, egyptian myrrh, golden amber, pink grapefruit, blackcurrant buds, lily of the valley,
star jasmine, rose petals, ylang-ylang, cardamom, and madagascar vanilla…
it’s definitely one to try. Plus, this roller ball is the perfect size to keep in your purse!

100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Dual-Ended Creamstick (Chocolate/Champagne)- $18
As a self-proclaimed makeup hoarder.. I try to layer my products as much as possible, to get the most use out of them. One of my favorite things to do is use chubby pencils like this 100% Pure dual
ended creamstick as a base for loose pigment, to add extra dimension to a look. I am a huge fan
of 100% Pure products, so I was stoked to try out and add this one to my makeup collection. Not
only does it glide on super creamy, but it’s full of nourishing vitamins, antioxidants, sea minerals.
Their name is not 100% Pure for nothing either. This formula is made with the purest of oils,
pigments, and waxes. making it the perfect choice for the most sensitive of eyes.

The Wonder Seed English Daisy Facial Cream- $16.95 
Just in time for spring! I’m looking forward to incorporating this light, and refreshing moisturizer
into my new seasonal routine. I prefer using a balancing, and fresh (naturally) scented cream like
this one in the morning. Don’t be afraid of the word oil! Hemp seed oil is easily absorbed by the
skin, anti-aging, scientifically proven to be a healing agent, improves skin texture, and is one
of the world’s richest sources of essential fatty acids. Hemp seed oil is great for helping skin
issues like Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne, and Rosacea. The Wonder Seed’s cream will nourish the
skin, lock-in moisture, and balance your natural oil profile. Not to mention it meets high
standards for being free of parabens, sulfates, gluten, artificial fragrance and color.
Definitely a must-try line for anyone with tricky skin. 

Tara Smith Haircare Base Coat Hair Serum- $13 
I was invited to the brand launch for Tara Smith last June, and was not able to make it.
But ever since then, the brand has been on my watch list, and I’m very excited to finally try it!
Tara has years of experience as a celebrity hair stylist, and totes the phrase “tested on film stars, not on animals” (loveeee it) to all the products she creates. The brand stands behind an all vegan,
cruelty & gluten-free promise on their high-performance haircare products. 

This hair serum in particular contains botanicals & professional-grade ingredients like starflower
seed extract, which helps lock in moisture and send hydration to the areas your hair needs it most.
As well as Tegosoft CT, which is derived from coconut oil and is a natural emollient that makes
your hair extra smooth. This baby will control high-humidity frizz for up to 24 hours, and keep hair
manageable while adding an eye-catching shine (clinically proven by 65%) to your locks.
Can we also talk about how cute the packaging is, featuring the pretty little Galah Bird?!
