Simply Earth Essential Oils Recipe Box

Before I was gifted the Simply Earth Essential Oils Recipe Box, my knowledge of essential oils was very minimal. I would add a few drops of eucalyptus or lavender to my diffuser at night and drift off to sleep. Over the last few years I’ve made a lot of changes in my life. I gave up eating meat, I try to avoid processed foods, and eat mainly organic. I’m always on the quest to live healthier and I continue to research new ways to improve my overall well-being, and that’s where Simply Earth comes in. I received the August essential oils recipe box and itRead More →

facial serums you need

During the dry winter months it’s important to step up your skincare routine with these three facial serums you need to attain flawless skin–at any age. Lots of people skip serums because they think they’re expensive (some are but not all, and a bottle can last a long time); they don’t know much about them; or they think if they use a good moisturizer with SPF then they’re good to go. Maybe right now, but the goal is to protect your skin so as you get older you won’t develop lines, wrinkles, age spots, and the other tell tale signs of aging. That’s why it’s bestRead More →

Pool Proof Makeup Products

During the hot months I like to keep my makeup routine as simple as possible.

The key in solving this common issue was adopting two makeup routines. One for the everyday summer months and one for when I’m going to be spending the day at the pool or at the beach. The difference betweenRead More →
