Smoke and Mirrors

I’m a fan of fresh faced, natural looking makeup and generally keep to the “no-makeup” makeup look in the summer. But as the temperature drops (finally) I always switch up to a more polished and moodier look. I came across this look on Apartment34.com this past weekend and fell in love with the pinkish nude lip pared with a smokey rimmed eye and dewy glow....

The Secret Garden

Certain words can evoke strong imagery in your mind.. Like Garden Apothecary. It immediately sends me to place filled with wonderful smells and delicate creations. A little while back, I stumbled upon Silkka Garden Apothecary on Instagram and was drawn to the products and description of how they smell. After looking into Silkka further, I found that Liisa Allen (the founder and crafter) makes small batches by hand each week and...

New Love

Is there anything better than finding a new product that just makes you swoon? Trying out products is always fun, but when I come across one that I instantly fall in love with or find myself coming back for more and more, then they instantly get an upgrade to my top drawer. There’s been a few of those lately and now that our love is...

Cleaning Up Your Cleaning Products

I’ve gotten so many requests about green cleaning products lately! It’s funny, because on the flip side, I’ve also had people ask why it matters since you’re not directly consuming it or applying to your body. Honestly, with small kids and a dog, no surface is safe from being touched, eaten off of or even licked in my house (seriously, I even found Bosco just licking some...

Better Than Gel Review + Aila Giveaway!!

I consider myself a true nail polish connoisseur. Of all the beauty products that make me swoon, I’ve always had a special place in my heart for nail polish and you’ll rarely find me with bare nails. I may be a teeny bit of a brand snob and really had doubts about going green with my nail products. I just assumed they wouldn’t be as good...

Coming Clean With My Shower Routine

Feeling dirty? You’re in luck, because today I’m talking about my shower routine and my favorite clean bath products. I post a lot of product reviews but the questions I get asked the most are always “What do you use?”, “What’s actually in your bathroom cabinet?”, or “What’s in your shower?”. I think beyond our innate curiosity about other people’s habits, people just want to know which...

Here Comes The Sun

The last bits of summer have all but slipped away, but fret not! You can keep your bronzed skin glowing with the help of some nontoxic self-tanners. Didn’t know such a thing existed? Well, I’m about to rock your world. Traditional self-tanners employ a chemical version of DHA (dihydroxyacetone) which interacts with dead skin cells to develop a darker color. Not only is the smell stinky enough...

What’s That Smell?

Well, it probably isn’t roses. In fact, it probably isn’t anything you’ve ever heard of. Synthetic fragrance (mostly listed as just “fragrance” or “perfume” on ingredient lists) is an ingredient you’ll find on the back of everything from lotions, to baby wash, to home cleaning products. “Fragrance” sounds kind of vague, right? Product companies are banking on that because in that one word hides a...

Keeping Kids Feeling Their Best

And it begins. We all got hit hard by a bad cold last week and Annabelle came down with a double ear infection. It barely feels like fall, but here we are! This seems like a good time to stock up on our sick supplies and share my list of tried and true natural favorites for kids and babies who are under the weather. If you have...
