April 2017 Beauty Heroes: Lilfox

April 19, 2017

This month’s Beauty Hero selection was enough to make me giddy when unpacking the box. It is brought to us by none other than the glorious Lilfox, with which I had zero previous experience. This brand was founded by Alexis Rose, a woman who has maintained a fascination and passion for plant alchemy since childhood. Her line of thoughtfully crafted products is notorious for the playful packaging, which features a floral design. The Hero product this month is the Jungle…

How I Clean My Home

April 14, 2017

‘Tis the season for spring cleaning, so I thought I’d share my tips with you. One of the first and easiest things I did to rid my home of unnecessary chemicals is to switch to using natural cleaning products. Not only is it better for our health, but I have found that it saves our family a lot of money. It gives me peace of mind when using them around children, and I feel better while cleaning now that we…

Testing Juice Beauty Skincare

April 5, 2017

I got this kit from my husband as a Christmas gift and am finally now getting around to reviewing it. Its only been what, four months? I have tried makeup from the Juice Beauty line before and liked most of it. Most recently I picked up their Flawless Finishing Powder in ‘Translucent,’ which has now found a place in my daily makeup routine. I was pretty excited to get to try their skincare items via the Juice Beauty Daily Hydrating…

Skin + Body Care Empties

March 21, 2017

The beginning of a new year usually ignites in me the urge to declutter and deep clean my house. This year that didn’t hit until about mid-February, which was around the time that my obsession with watching minimalism videos on Youtube coincided with a period of using shiz up. Is there anything more satisfying? Hence, my first empties post is here! I think I can now officially call myself a blogger. I have been so inspired recently to continue cleaning…

March 2017 Beauty Heroes Review | Innersense

March 14, 2017

So I know I gush over just about every Beauty Heroes box, but spoiler: this may be my favorite one ever. Okay, probably a tie with the Josh Rosebrook box. I mean, its hard to compete with that, right? I was floored to open up the March box and find not two, not three, but FOUR products! On top of that, all four are full-sized…say whaaat?! Featured this month is the Innersense Hydrate Collection, which includes the Hydrating Cream Hairbath…

How I Survive Winter: Lifestyle Edition

February 24, 2017

We’re midway through February, so I figured I should finally post my second installment of how I survive winter. My last one was beauty-centric, which you can catch here, but this time I’m talking house and home must haves. Hopefully this helps you to manage these last brutal days of winter a little better. 1. Cuppa Hot Tea I think I could almost live on tea alone in the winter. It helps to combat my least favorite part of this…

I love using natural + eco beauty products for any occasion, and so of course this is no exception. Let me know what you…

How I Survive Winter: Beauty Edition

January 26, 2017

The early months of our Midwest winter always tease me, promising that this season will be a magical and beautiful time. I anticipate days of sparkly snow falling softly outside my window, and cozy evenings spent inside cuddled up with blanket, a good book, and loads of hot tea. I have to say that this past Christmas was so much fun, especially getting to experience it with a four year old. But after the holidays are over you suddenly realize…
