April 2017 Favorites

Hi there! I did a little online shopping in early April thanks to some gift cards that I received for my birthday- sometimes getting another year older has its perks. As a result, I have a lot of beauty favorites to share this month, and next month will probably be similar! This is not a sponsored post, and all products mentioned below were purchased with my own money. However, this post does contain some affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links, I’ll receive a small percentage of the sale. Whether or not...

Alima Pure was one of the first natural brands that I ever used.  We’re talking years ago when all I wanted was a good mineral foundation; I didn’t even care about whether or not it was clean.  I remember being impressed back then, and I am still impressed today.

Beauty Brand Spotlight on Odacite

Hi! I am writing this post tonight to calm my nerves as I watch the gymnastics portion of the Olympics.  It is far and away my favorite competition, but it puts me so on edge- although not to the same extent as Aly Raisman’s parents. There isn’t really a good way to segue from gymnastics to skincare, so I’m just going to jump right on in to it. I recently stumbled upon a lovely brand called Odacite Skincare.  It was founded by a woman named Valerie Grandury after she was diagnosed with breast cancer and sought to create a...
