Please tell me that you’ve heard of subscription boxes! Because if you haven’t, seriously, you’re missing out! The basic premise is that you pay a monthly fee and you receive a box full of goodies. It’s awesome, and there are boxes out there for everyone’s taste. I have a post about the beauty ones here. But I digress, this month’s Glossybox just showed up in my mailbox yesterday, and I decided to unbox it here for you. So let’s get to the March Glossybox Unboxing!Continue Reading
Now that the weather is warming up, my skin is going bonkers. I’ve been trying to get my skin routine in order for Spring, finding things that work well for me. I am a total product junkie, you guys know that – so when InstaNatural asked me if I wanted to try their new Dead Sea Mud Mask, made with Dead Sea Salts, I was all about it.
My medicine cabinet, and the cupboard under my sink look like I could open my own beauty counter. It’s sorta sad, but mostly awesome. Anytime I can add to it, especially with products that actually work for me, I am all about that. Usually it’s a place where products I try go to die, but every so often I find something worth sharing and talking about.Continue Reading

So while the rest of the entire country is in what we like to call “boot season”, I am in Southern California with 80 degree weather (not to brag or anything, folks with snow already) and we are still in flip flops. Which means that around here is almost a requirement to have a standing appointment at the nail salon for your bi-monthly pedicure. Well, being a mom I don’t really get those anymore. No time to sit and relax in quiet for an hour to have someone sand my feet down and make them look soft and pretty for 2 weeks. Nope. I have kids. And I respect those women too much to bring my screaming darling snowflakes with me to the salon and ruin their alone time away from their kids.Continue Reading
OK, so I am not going to lie, I love this moisturizer, but it’s just too hot to wear this on my face right now. The temperatures are in the triple digits here, and I just can’t wear anything on my face besides some toner, hyaluronic serum and a spritz of my Fix+. Honestly, this product is a fantastic product for the winter months when your skin is going to be begging for this level of hydration.Continue Reading
Firstly, I am completely obsessed with Coconut Oil and use it every day in not only cooking, but in my beauty routine too! If you don’t already have a tub of it, stock up! Thera Vita makes an AMAZING brand of Coconut Oil called Paradise, that I highly recommend. It’s organic, non-bleached, non-deodorized, hexane and chemical free. It’s also cold pressed, which makes for an amazing creamy product. It’s just fantastic.
Aside from being a healthy alternative to butter or oil in recipes, coconut oil is an amazing beauty product for hair, skin and nails! Below I’ve compiled a few things you can do with coconut oil that might surprise you.Continue Reading
“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence Central for Dove Advanced Care Deodorant. I received a promotional item to facilitate my review.”
I first tried Dove deodorant right before my wedding. A tiny little sample came in a Bride Swag Bag I was given and it was the perfect size to put in my 911 Bride bag I had with me on my big day. I had previously been using some other brand that shall remain nameless, and I was happy, it was ok, but I just wanted something new.Continue Reading
If you’ve been in the market for an easy to use, light and refreshing moisturizer, look no further. I’ve been using this Hyaluronic Acid moisturizer Ageless by Thera Vita for the past month, and am loving it!Continue Reading
If you’ve read this blog for any amount of time, you might know how much of a product junkie I am. One of my favorite products for 2014 has been Vitamin C Serums. I seriously love them! Not only are they lightweight and easy to use, but they smell amazing too!
If you try one new beauty product this year, make sure it’s a Vitamin C serum! I swear, it’s life changing. My skin looks brighter, healthier, younger, tighter… Do I need to go on?Continue Reading

I love my tiny little garden on my balcony. I have always wanted a big huge farm, but alas living in an apartment right now is not going to allow that. I few years ago I started a small little balcony garden, and it’s been flourishing ever since. I love my small space out there, loaded with all sorts of herbs, flowers and veggies, but I hate what it does to my hands. I’ve tried lots of different things, but it’s usually the options are so rough on my skin. Digging in the dirt, repotting seedlings and pruning thorn bushes can really get messy. So I decided I needed a better option besides the man soap my husband uses after he works on cars, and I created a gardener’s hand scrub using epsom salts, kosher salt, essential oils and Palmolive Coconut Butter Soft Touch Soap. It’s like a little mini spa treatment in my kitchen sink. I love finding other uses for dish soap!Continue Reading
