Love Beauty and Planet Review

I have a confession, 
I am not the type of person who shops for eco-friendly beauty products. I know it's unheard of in this day and age but in my defense I feel like their is not enough green beauty products on the market. 
But there is a new brand that has been launched that is not only eco-friendly but they only use organic, natural, vegan ingredients with no dyes, parabens, sulfates, silicones, and is not tested on animals. Let me introduce you to Love Beauty & Planet.
Love Beauty & Planet was started by group of like minded people who believe that looking good and doing good should go hand-in-hand. Makes sense right? And it's about time that we have a brand on the market that share theses goals with like minded consumers. All of their gorgeous products are naturally derived. That’s because they use lots of organic goodness & always source from sustainable growers across the world in place like, France, Morocco, and Australia. Plus, they promote fair wage jobs and…

Make-up tips for wearing glasses

I've always hated wearing glasses. 
My face is small so it's hard for me to find a pair that makes does not make my eyes get lost behind them. The key is to find a pair that will enhance you're facial features and bring attention to your specs. I've also had qualms about how to style an outfit and hair with glasses(which apparently there's no wrong answer). 

I was stumped on the do's and don'ts of make-up with glasses! 
I love wearing lots of eye makeup, but I knew that wearing too much wouldn't look so great under glasses. And since my eyes are usually the feature that I play up when applying cosmetics, I was stumped. 

But thankfully after googling and reading for hours on how to master this, I will share with you some of my new found wisdom and some photo inspiration via Pinterest:
When it comes to shadow, the lighter and more neutral the color on the lid, the better,dark shades will, agnify dark undertones around the eyes, causing them to look tired and s…

Favorite books of 2017

Since I could remember, I've always loved books. One of my favorite memorys is sitting on my Grandfather's lap while he read me a bedtime story at night. I've always been an avid reader. I'm the type of person that prefers books to TV/movies. Since my oldest son was born, i've read to him and my youngest son as well, so now they share my love of books.
The last few years I've spent a lot of time reading classics and memoirs. But this past year I've seemed to pick up more newly released books. I also became a member of the social media networking site GoodReads so I seen a lot of books my friends were reading and recommended. Every time I read and finished a new book, I logged it into GoodReads to keep track of how much I read this year(39 books!).
With so many unforgettable characters and stories, it was hard to chose my favorites of the year. But the way I chose my favorites is by the stories and characters that I'll never forget and by which books th…

Best Fragrances of 2017

I am such a Perfume junkie. I change fragrances with clothes, moods, seasons and events. I've always felt like Perfume is a luxury that women should spoil their selves with. I love giving perfumes to my friends, family, co-workers, neighbors(you get the picture). And my favorite gift is always perfume(hint-hint)! Every department store visit, I head to the fragrance counter before I check out anything else to see what's new(Yes fragrance girl, you can give me a spritz).  Ok, now that  you get the idea of how deep my relationship with perfume is.  2017 has been a great year for the fragrance industry. I thought long and hard and I really can't remember trying a scent that I didn't like. From new releases from beloved favorite brands, Gucci Bloom, Victor & Rolf Magic, Tom Ford Oud Minerale to new fragrences from Diptyque Eau des Sens, Jo Malone London Jade Leaf Tea Cologne, and Atelier Cologne CafĂ© Tuberosa. 
It was a struggle to find my top 5 favorite scents of the ye…

Favorite Beauty Products of 2017

2017 has been such an innovative, exciting and enticing year in the beauty market. With many new products from be-loved brands to new brands that have made their way into a new staple. From high luxury brands, high end items, celebrity product lines, and drugstore products, I can honestly say that each month I've been anxiously awaiting the launch of something new(and my bank account can agree).  
When I do my yearly beauty favorites post I put the items into 3 categories; makeup, skincare and hair. This year I didn't really try any new hair care products. It seemed like I reached and re-bought the same things that I used last year. So if you have tried a new hair product or tool that you loved or would recommend, please let me know about it!

As I looked through my vanity drawers to select my favorites of the year, to be honest it was so much harder than expected, I narrowed it down to the items that I used consistently, would recommend to a friend, and would give them a 5 star …

I was one of several influensters who received the Charm Vox Box. This box is for mom's only, as it is filled with surprises for my little ones as well.
