It’s been awhile since I chat about skincare on here. Like, truly went in depth and shared with you why I don’t typically switch up my skincare routine often, if at all. But let me say, IF and when I do add new products to my regimen, it’s gotta be good. I mean, everything I talk about or promote is going to be stinkin’ good – and I’m going to support it 100% – but with skincare, I’m even more specific. Not only cus it’s my delicate, sensitive skin and it’s basically me bathing in it…lol but also I’m implementing something new into my daily/nightly ritual and I want it to be effective and really wow me.
Sometimes we just can’t find the time to head to the beach each weekend—especially if you live 3 hours away like myself! I’m also not a huge fan of the pool… so how the heck am I going to get my tan on this summer? Good question. I’ve got an answer (and it’s not propping yourself up in a skin-damaging tanning bed!). Instead? Self-tanner!
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! ;)
Haaaaappy Monday lovelies! It’s been awhile. Between prepping for marriage, the actual wedding, the honeymoon and getting back and settled into my new home with my new HUSBAND…things have been a bit hectic! But I’m here, aren’t I? :)
Today’s post is something I’ve really grown to appreciate and love. A facial mist! But not just any facial mist…Maya Water Facial Mist: a clean, mineral-rich and pH neutral thermal spa water mist from Skogshorn in Hemsedal, Norway. I mean…you had me at Norway! But in all seriousness, this unique, high-end facial mist truly does wonders to the skin. With added active antioxidants ranging from white tea, goji and acai. It revitalizes, protects and cleanses dry, tired skin. Who needs that? I do! Especially with my recent traveling to Paris for our honeymoon – an 8 hour flight there – my skin was parched. I sprayed a little of the White Tea Mist and I felt refreshed, dewy and even recharged!
Today’s blog post comes from a place of sheer excitement..mainly because I just love this unique company so much! From their Lip Boosts, to their Serum Foundations – Gressa Skin is paving the way for a more innovative green makeup lifestyle. Quick, healthy, clean, beautiful, and simply put, flawless!
Being from Canada, and a mix of British, Irish and Italian, there wasn’t very much room for a nice glow – especially in the winter. I also inherited my British/Irish genes of pale skin, freckles and easily burnt skin (if not protected). **Thankfully, because of my Italian blood, I do tan better after a base/slight burn ha.** Anyways, what I’m trying to say is that I not only love the beach, but long for waves, sand and sunshine. I adore the freckly, beachy, sun-kissed glow it imparts! Sadly, it’s fall now and the beach days are over. (SOB) However, I just received this wonderful product from Prtty Peaushun (Pronounced “Pretty Potion”) and have been blown away by it!
From L-R: Small size DHE Mask, some tiny samples scattered around (face cream, serum, eye cream, etc), a sample of their Dealkalizing Deodorant and a small size of their Intensive Therapy Organic Hand Cream.
Gosh, I looooove me some Canada! Some of the best green beauty comes out of my homeland – and this one is no exception! This Toronto-based, natural skincare line, Consonant Skincare, is amazing! Consonant‘s philosophy is one of simplicity:
