Who doesn’t enjoy some well-deserved skin lovin’? I love interviewing indie business owners! Each person has a moment in their life when they’re forced to make a decision and they choose the path most difficult – simply because they dream bigger than they live. Anastacia’s Skin Studio is Nashville’s best known hot-spot for organic spray tanning, waxing, micropigmentation (aka microblading) and more! Stace (Anastacia) and I have been friends for almost 5 years or so and I’ve seen her business grow incredibly well. She’s an amazing business woman and friend..plus she totally knows what she’s doing. She literally geeks out over the science behind skin and the cosmetic aspects of it..I mean, I trusted her to microblade my brows! You don’t just let anyone do that! ;)
Happy beginning of the week! We all know how much of a makeup lover I am, so I just couldn’t let you start your week without sharing my favourite green makeup products! I adore all of these products so much, and use most of them almost daily. They’re staples in my personal makeup kit, so I hope you get something out of this post and check them all out – plus end up loving them too! ;)
Spring is in the aaaair and Gabriel Cosmetics is launching the Radiant Beauty collection in celebration of the warmer weather! (Well, per my official statement at least!) This collection includes gorgeous varieties of pink-toned 5-free nail polish (you know how much I love me some pink!), an eyeshadow palette with cool, calming tones, a matte finishing powder and a matte soft pink blush, then finishes off with a beautiful medium toned nude lipstick!
We’re all aware that the holidays are just around the corner…I mean, I think everyone decided to go Christmas crazy really early this year. It seems like all of my friends posts and videos are of Christmas decor or music! Just me? But for real, I’ll blink and the next thing I know it’s Christmas morning (LOL..)! Ok, I promise, I am going to keep the intro to this post simple, just like the gift guide. If you are wanting some ideas for gifts this year, here are some products/brands I have been loving and I personally think would make a lovely gift! Annnnnd 1, 2, 3…go!
A matte lipstick that’s organic?! I know, FINALLY, right?! I’ve had a handful of ladies ask me about a matte lipstick that contains safe ingredients, and preforms. In the green beauty world, there are few and far between. But, alas, here we have them! 100% Pure has put out a new Semi-Matte Lipstick (even though it says semi, I see it more of a “matte” on its own) that is made with mostly organic butters and fruits – but how did they get them to apply matte, you ask? Read more to find out, including my thoughts** on these deliciously gorgeous lippies!
Welcome back and happy August 24th! Can you believe it’s already almost September? I can’t. The summer flies by!
Let’s not waste anytime! This months Petit Vour Beauty Box was all about Green Beauty Bliss! It came with such a cute description card too – as always – illustrated by the lovely Mia Charro. If you’ve never heard of Petit Vour, where’ve ya been!? Just kidding..haha. Petit Vour is a monthly subscription box that carries amazing non-toxic, vegan, and cruelty-free beauty products…for only 15 bucks! Yeah, that’s a steal for all the amazing products you’re getting – which are way over $15 by the way. The beauty boxes each come packed with four deluxe-sized (and sometimes full-sized) products. So great!
I’ll be honest here;Rituel de Fille completely caught me off guard. Dark, gothy vibes…gorgeous deep, rich palettes – eyeshadows and lipsticks alike. I was sure they were off the market for me – then I found out they’re completely natural! This company is truly breaking barriers in the clean/green beauty community.
