Fave Find: Skin Essence Organics

Skin essence organics products

I’m officially back after a bit of a self-imposed mat leave. I was working right up to the last minute–my little one showed up the night after my last blog post was published. In fact, I remember finishing up a work email while breathing through contractions! Such is the life of a freelancer, haha.

I can’t believe how quickly the time flies–my little guy is four months old already, and the holidays are right around the corner. And speaking of which, I have a fantastic gift recommendation for the clean beauty product lover in your life (or … you know … for yourself). Plus, keep reading for a special discount code!

Fave Find: Drifter Organics


Happy Easter weekend, everyone!

It’s so nice to finally have some sunshine here on the west coast. It’s about time! I feel like I’m slowing coming out of my winter hibernation. And what better way to celebrate the beginning of springtime than with some lovely organic treats (…for your body, that is). Recently, Drifter Organics kindly sent me some of their all-natural body butters to try out. So without further ado, here’s all about Drifter Organics!

Beauty Resolutions

Well, of course I have a lot more to improve on in 2016 than beauty and skin care. But to be 100% honest….working out every day, getting 8 hours of sleep every night, and only eating health food just doesn’t excite me like the thrill of trying a new beauty product. #Truth

So why not make 2016 the year of perfect skin, nailing that fishtail braid, and finally mastering the delicate art of a messy (but not too messy) messy bun? It’s more fun, and a lot more achievable!

Without further ado, here are my beauty resolutions of 2016:

  • Clean my makeup brushes on a regular basis. Because it’s time to grow up already. Buying new makeup brushes because your old ones are gross is worse (and more expensive) than buying new underwear because you’re too lazy to do laundry. Time to enter adulthood.
  • Calm my skin, once and for all. Does anyone else have the fun of dealing with blemishes and flaky, dry skin–at the same time? Apparently this has a lot to do with having really sensitive skin. No wonder my skin felt so happy with really gentle cleansers. So my big goal is to tackle the heart of the problem, by using super gentle products to help calm redness and sensitivity. So far I’ve heard great things about First Aid Beauty, as well as the Mega Mushroom line of Origins. Anyone else have other suggestions?
  • Master some hairstyles, already! Like really pretty braids, or beachy waves. If anyone wants to recommend some great YouTube tutorials, please let me know!
  • Be kind to my hair. Speaking of hair, my poor hair is so frazzled from going blonde. Time for a serious trim. And I’m toying with the idea of returning to my natural brunette…but I’m undecided.

I’ve love to know: do you have beauty/skincare/hair resolutions? What are they, and what’s your game plan?
