July 2016 Favorites

Happy August! It has been another busy month, but I recently cut down on a few writing commitments which should mean more time for blogging.  I definitely have a lot of posts in the works, so you can expect to hear more from me this month. Here are the favorites from last month- and for once, none of them are edible! Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Eye Shadow in Cappuccino Ever since I bid farewell to my Urban Decay Naked Palette, I have been in need of a neutral, non-shimmery eye shadow that would work for every day.  Cappuccino certain fits the...

June 2016 Favorites

This post is not sponsored.  However, I would like to thank Sun Warrior and BFree for their generous samples. As always, this post reflects my own true thoughts.   I have more food favorites to share this month than usual, so I guess that tells you where my head’s been at lately. I also have one household favorite, but because it is so good, I am going to dedicate an entire post to it next week.  I cannot wait!     Hynt Beauty DUET Perfecting Concealer Now that I have a little color on my face from being outdoors so...

May 2016 Favorites

Please note: This is not a sponsored post, but the foundation was sent to me for consideration. As always, any reviews reflect my own true opinions.   Hi! May was a very busy month for me between the kids, kitchen renovations, and an awesome mini-vacation to Savannah which is why I didn’t get the opportunity to post as often as I would have liked.  I’m hoping that June isn’t quite as hectic, and I can get back on a better posting schedule. Last month, I didn’t have a ton of favorites, but this month, I...

April 2016 Favorites

Please note: This is not a sponsored post.  As always, these are my own honest opinions.   I don’t have a ton of favorites this month because, quite honestly, I’ve still been enjoying the things from the two previous months (see February & March).  Regardless, I do have a good variety with food, accessories, and beauty being among the chosen ones. Let’s get to it! The Oh She Glows Cookbook I don’t know why on earth it took me so long to get this cookbook, especially since I’ve been a fan of...

A beginner’s guide to green beauty

A beginner’s guide to green beauty

Hi there! I have been getting a lot of emails lately from women who want to know where to start when it comes to adopting a cleaner beauty routine.  This is actually a topic that I’ve covered here and there in the past, but now that I’ve been fully immersed in the green beauty world for awhile, I feel that I have even more (and better) tips to offer on the subject- though I am certainly not an expert and there’s always more to learn.    1.  Do your research. While you can totally get into reading about the science...

Flattering Blush Recommendations (Cream & Powder)

Flattering Blush Recommendations (Cream & Powder)

When it comes to beauty, most of us have our vices.  I’ve known women who have enough nail polishes to open their own salon.  I have a friend who is on a quest for the most perfect brows, so she owns nearly every brow powder, pencil, stencil, gel, and wax on the market.  And I’ve watched beauty gurus on YouTube who have enough foundations to cover themselves from head to toe for ten years without ever having to replenish their stock. I have two major beauty weaknesses: lip products and blushes. I’m definitely the woman who...
