Happy Tuesday my sweets!

Today, I'm sharing my thoughts on two products from Aveda's Tulāsara Wedding Masque collection, the night and eye creams. These products were sent to me to test out back when I was pregnant with Aviah, but I didn't begin using them until days after I came home from the hospital after having her because I was in dire need of some TLC. As I've mentioned in a previous skincare post, I didn't truly begin to take my skincare regimen seriously until after having Aviah. Not only have I realized the importance of taking care of my skin, but it gives me a few minutes of some me time. It feels good to know that I'm doing something that is good for me, too :)

Happy Tuesday my sweet friends!

Since having Aviah, I don't usually have much time to do my makeup as I once did, which has resulted in me in paying more mind to my skin care regimen. This routine doesn't take forever to do, so it's perfect for a new mom, like myself, who doesn't have much extra time on her hands. I'm not going to discuss my entire routine step-by-step in this post, though if you're interested, I can in another. Today, I'm specifically narrowing in on the face masks that I've been using for quite a few months and that I absolutely adore.

Happy Friday my sweet friends!

About a month ago, Influenster sent me a vox box filled with some goodies to test out. I always look forward to being selected by them for their vox boxes because I've discovered some great brands and products through those boxes. Since having Aviah, though, I've been more selective about my skincare and products I'm willing to try. When I was pregnant, my entire skincare regimen changed and since then, I've continued to restrict my products to mostly all natural, organic, and paraben free. Since I'm nursing, I'm super paranoid about chemicals being absorbed through my skin. This isn't to say that I only use these kind of products, but 90% off my makeup and beauty collection is.

Happy Friday my gorgeous friends!

A little over two months ago, the folks over at Botanics reached out to me to review a few of their products, their toning spritzhydrating day moisturizer with sage, and makeup remover wipes. I was so excited to learn of this brand that I had not heard of before, mainly because they're organic and their ingredients are quite interesting. After having Aviah, I've been paying more mind to my skin, which Eddie refers to as my "project." Most days, I don't have the time to put on a full glam face, let alone any makeup at all, so I've vowed to take better care of my skin, so I'll feel more confident going makeup free when needed and I have been.

Happy Thursday my dear friends!

Last spring, I shared some of my favorite seasonal nail polishes with you, so I thought it'd be fun to share some of my fall favorites! I try my best to have my nails done because they make all the difference in my mood and self-esteem believe it or not! I feel more put together when they're done and I love exploring different color options that are practical to wear with much of my wardrobe for the week (I try to do them weekly) and that also serve as a statement, specifically during the summer and fall seasons when colors are most often embraced.

Happy Friday my dear friends!

Today's I'm bringing to you a different kind of post than I typically would on a Friday, a makeup review! I typically save these for either Tuesdays or Thursdays, but due to my newest addition obsession, little Miss Aviah, my posting schedule has been a bit all over the place. We'll get back to regular programing at some point ;)

Happy Wednesday my gorgeous friends!

As we all know, Mother's Day is right around the corner, this Sunday to be exact! I honestly believe we should show our mom's how much we love and appreciate them all year long, as cheesy as that may sound. At the same time, it's nice to have one day entirely dedicated to spoiling our moms and I'm sure your mom would agree, I know mine would, lol. I've talked about how much mom loves nature and I showed you a little glimpse of her little botanical garden in her house a couple of weeks ago when we headed to Brooklyn to celebrate her birthday. Aside from loving flowers, she loves using all natural and organic products, specifically essential oils.

Happy Thursday my beautiful friends!

A couple of months ago, La Bella Donna reached out to me to review some of the products in their line. I never heard of the brand before, so I was a bit apprehensive. What sparked my interest and willingness to test it out is that they claim to be chemical free and contain mineral based ingredients that are said to be beneficial for the skin. I made sure to ask if the products were safe to use during pregnancy and I was assured that it is, as once again, they don't contain harmful chemicals and are free of FD&C dyes. This is not to say that I only wear chemical free, organic, or all natural makeup, though 85% of my makeup collection is either vegan or all natural.

Happy Thursday friends!

I want to first start off by saying that this post is not sponsored by Essie, I just love the brand and I know I'm not alone! After having tried so many different nail polish brands, I've personally noticed that they last the longest and have such a beautiful color selection, truly endless!

I do my own mani-pedi and have done so for years! I just prefer the way I do them than when I go to a salon. If anything, I'd get a pedicure just so I can relax in those huge comfy message chairs, haha. I guess I can liken this to a makeup artist having their makeup done by someone else. Though they may do a great job, it's just not what you're used to, you know what looks good on you. Same is true for my nails. I like them shaped a certain way and I know I can get annoying when it comes to how pigmented the polish is and how many coats I feel are needed.

Happy Tuesday my gorgeous friends!

About a month ago, Vichy reached out to me with the opportunity to review their mineral face masque collection, which consists of three very different masques, each formulated to target and improve the condition of specific skin conditions and concerns, though all three can be used within just 5 minutes, which is pretty awesome and convenient when on the go or hurry! I had read many positive reviews on the brand in general, yet had never tried any of their products before, so I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to do so and today, I'm sharing my honest thoughts and experience with each of the three masques over a one month time period.
