Some of my skin care & hair care essentials for travel

Some of my skin care & hair care essentials for travel

Hi! My family and I took a little mini-vacation to Charleston, South Carolina this past weekend.  Much to my disappointment, I didn’t see any of the Southern Charm cast members- though I was certainly on high alert the whole time. I was pretty proud of myself for packing lightly, but there were some skin care and hair care essentials that I knew I had to bring…no matter what. Ursa Major Fantastic Face Wash I received a sample of this face wash in my last Petit Vour box, and honestly, I wasn’t overly excited to try it...

What’s in my shower?

What’s in my shower?

I don’t know about you, but I love to read “What’s in my shower?” posts and also like to watch those videos on YouTube.  Since I recently switched out a bunch of my products, I figured that it would be the perfect time for an update of my own. By the way, this doesn’t include my husband’s products.  But don’t worry, you’re not missing much! Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Face & Body Bar This soap is quite moisturizing, so I recommend it especially if you have dry skin.  It is also really good...

Friday Favorites (6/12)

Happy Friday! I hope that everyone had a wonderful week.  I’ve been really energized, and as a result, I have been writing and blogging up a storm. For those of you who are mommies or are interested in reading mommy blogs, I’ve really been blogging a lot more lately on The Mini Skirt.  I am actually hosting a giveaway over there right now to celebrate the launch of my new online book store with Usborne Books & More (the cutest children’s books ever).  Be sure to enter if you have children, kids in your life, or even if...

Non-Toxic Beauty Brand Spotlight: Earth Science Naturals

(Please note: This is not a sponsored post.  I purchased all products mentioned below with my own money, and this post reflects my true opinions about them.)   I was doing a little product inventory in my bathroom over the weekend and realized that I use an awful lot of things by Earth Science Naturals.  It’s no wonder being that it is such an affordable brand (especially since I usually order my products from Vitacost).  In this instance, inexpensive doesn’t mean cheap quality.  I continue to go back to the brand because...

Non-toxic beauty brand spotlight: ACURE Organics

Non-toxic beauty brand spotlight: ACURE Organics

It always makes me happy when more natural beauty brands hit mainstream stores.  Obviously, I like it because it makes the products easier for me to get without having to make a special shopping trip or online order. However, what really makes me so giddy about it is that it gives other people the opportunity to try a safer brand that they might not have purchased otherwise and hopefully paves the way for other non-toxic brands to enter these stores as well. Well, I am really pleased to announce that one of  my longtime favorite brands,...

12 Tips for growing thicker hair & managing hair loss

12 Tips for growing thicker hair & managing hair loss

I discuss outer beauty a lot on this blog, but I also try to balance those posts out with lots of information about health and overall well-being. After all, there is more to life than makeup and good hair days. With that being said, it is often hard to feel good about ourselves when we don’t look our very best. Not to overgeneralize too much, but I think that women are especially impacted when they have a physical attribute that makes them feel self-conscious. Several months ago, I was personally dealing with some postpartum hair loss...
