Friday Favorites (6/26)

Happy Friday! This week’s favorites all seem to fall into either one of two categories: food or minimalism (although I guess that the last one technically falls under both). Be sure to leave your favorites in the comments, so I can shop… I mean, check them out. Coco-Roons I kind of wish that I didn’t discover these because they’re slightly addictive.  But the ingredient list is pretty awesome (and short!), so I can almost convince myself that eating the whole bag within a day isn’t the worst thing in the...

Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week.  I blogged a lot on The Mini Skirt this week, so if you like more personal posts, be sure to visit.  It has been a lot of fun to share more of those details with you! (Image source) Trader Joe’s Very Green 100% Juice Smoothie  I think that I went through about three bottles of this stuff in like a week and a half, but I’m just so into juices right now!  As I said the other day, I really need to get a new juicer, but for now, I am really enjoying this green smoothie/juice concoction....

Products I’ve used up lately & my thoughts on each one (#3)

Yep.  I am still plowing through my never-ending stash of products. (See past empties posts here and here.) Does anyone else get excited when they finish an entire bottle of something?  Perhaps I need to set higher goals for myself, but to me, it feels like a mini accomplishment. Here are all of the products that I have finished up since my last update! Acure Shampoo (Moroccan Argan Stem Cell & Argan Oil) I really loved this shampoo and enjoyed switching off between this and my Andalou Naturals shampoo.  You can see a full review of...

Review of Gorgeous for Good: A Simple 30-Day Program for Lasting Beauty – Inside and Out

Switching to nontoxic products can be very overwhelming in the beginning.  When I first started, I really could have used a beginner’s guide or a cheat sheet as far as what brands to consider. Well, as many of you know, I created a list of brands to try, and I hope it has been helpful!  And Sophie Uliano’s latest book Gorgeous for Good: A Simple 30-Day Program for Lasting Beauty – Inside and Out serves as the most perfect guide to getting started.  As soon as I saw it on my recommended reading list on Amazon, I knew that I...

Friday favorites & a giveaway!

Happy Friday! I am really excited about my favorites and the giveaway I am running, so I am just going to jump right on into it. Beauty Counter Tint Skin Complexion Coverage I like to wear a tinted moisturizer during the spring and summer months, and after hearing rave reviews about this one from Beauty Counter, I went ahead and ordered it.  I absolutely understand the hype now.  It reminds me of the IT Cosmetics CC Cream (which I love) with a lighter coverage (although it is buildable).  It is hydrating but not even remotely greasy, and it...
