Loving in September

1. ILIA Sheer Vivid Tinted Moisturizer has been my favorite product so far this Fall. I have a strict rule that I never wear foundation during the summer months because I feel like my skin can’t breath so a tinted moisturizer is the perfect alternative. Unfortunately, even though it’s September the weather has yet to cool down here and still reaches the high 80’s during the day which means it’s not quite foundation weather. ILIA’s products are so luxurious and their Tinted Moisturizer is no exception. Formulated with aloe vera for added hydration the moisturizer goes on thinly and has just a hint of color plus it has SPF 20 so it protects your skin from uva and uvb rays. 2. This Silk Ruffle-Hem Dress from Madewell is the new love of my life. Well if I’m being completely honest the whole of the Madewell store is the new love of life. For some months now I’ve been paying very close attention to what I wear and I’m not talking about what the latest trends …

June’s Skincare Wishlist

I am a major luster of skincare products, makeup and all things beauty related. More so than even clothes I love to try out different beauty products to enhance the glow and health of my skin. With the change in season and the heat and humidity index rising higher and higher my current products simply won’t do. Here’s what I’m currently lusting over to nourish and keep my skin glowing and fresh all month long. May Lindstrom Skin The Clean Dirt is at the top of my want list currently. While I haven’t been breaking out lately per se, I’ve noticed some hormonal congestion around my chin and along my cheeks. Perhaps it’s the summer months, the humidity, the endless rain or maybe it’s just stress but either way my skin needs some serious TLC. I’ve been dying to try all of May Lindstrom’s products but The Clean Dirt seems to be the one that will be the most effective for my current skin woes. With a healthy mix of Vitamin C, two kinds of …

2015 Pantone Color of the Year – Marsala

This Pea Coat is so Fall and Winter chic. The clean lines of this coat are perfection. Plus it’s vegan, eco-friendly and zero waste. I’ve featured this handbag before and I am still just as in love with it today. The wine color tote represents the new color of the year splendidly, no? It’s also fair trade, eco-friendly and vegan. These namaste earrings by Ananda Soul Creations are simply gorgeous. Garnet attracts love to your personal relationships and enhances courage and self-confidence. This may be my favorite beauty product as it’s so simple and effective at clearing my skin. This french red clay konjac sponge hydrates and brightens dull skin through gentle exfoliation. My favorite fall/winter accessory is a dark nail. This nail lacquer is the best way to try on marsala for yourself. I love Ilia lipstick because it’s the only one that moisturizes while adding long lasting color. Slap on some of Ilia’s Tinted Lip Conditioner in Bang Bang. I’m still lusting over these shoes and since they’re on sale I should probably …

Fall Inspired Makeup Look

When it comes to makeup I am definitely a creature of habit. I wish I were one of those girls that came up with a new makeup look many times a week but that’s just not who I am and I’ve accepted it. My most recent makeup look is inspired by the beautiful Fall season (my favorite color is October) and is extra special because it is entirely toxin-free. It seems that each day there’s a new It makeup/skincare line bursting onto the scene and I love it! More makeup for me to habitually obsess over. I put a little board together to showcase my current makeup look and I even included a selfie below so you can see the finished product. I am not a selfie taker to be clear, but I’m going to go ahead and branch out, after all it’s time to get comfortable being uncomfortable and grow. Does taking a selfie count as personal growth? One // Two // Three // Four // Five // Six // Seven // Eight // …
