My Indie Beauty Expo Recap

Indie Beauty Expo event

The much anticipated, first ever Indie Beauty Expo was last week and it was probably the biggest green beauty event to hit New York City since A Night For Green Beauty 2 years ago. Of course, I had to attend and I was honored to not only be attending as a blogger and beauty aficionado, but also representing the editorial team from Thoughtfully Magazine along with our beauty editor, Rebecca Casciano.

Sustainable and Affordable: Preserve Products

PreserveProducts
The world has gotten to an age we are all thinking more consciously about the types of food we eat, what ingredients are in our cosmetics and skincare, and even how our clothes are manufactured. There is an increased interest in sustainability and waste, but how often do you think about the impact products like your toothbrushes and razors have on the environment?

New Releases Radar \\ 11

New Releases 11

There’s something about summer that causes a crazy surge in new and exciting product releases.  A Night For Green Beauty (ANFGB) also happened this month in Chicago and many brands released new products or sneak peeks in time for the event. I generally distance myself from the seasonal frenzies (to protect my wallet and my sanity) but I had to share some of my favorite, lust-worthy new releases:

Lucky Magazine Feature

It was my birthday last Sunday and I had a relaxing day with friends and family but to top it all off, on Monday I discovered something quite exciting. As usual, I was scrolling through blog and magazine articles online to start off my day and I came across a Lucky Magazine article, “10 Under-The-Radar Beauty Blogs You Need To Be Reading”. Curious to see what blogs were featured, I clicked on the article and casually thought “Wouldn’t it be cool if they featured my blog?”

Pure and Powerful: Josh Rosebrook Skin and Hair Care

Josh Rosebrook Skin and Hair Care 1

You know those brands that seem to have it all? Highly effective, pure formulas, sexy-simplistic design, and a cult following? I’d say that is what Josh Rosebrook’s hair and skin care products were for me. A gorgeous natural/organic brand I had heard so much about but realized I’d never experienced for myself. As my quest for cleaner and greener haircare evolved, I made known my curiosity in the shampoo and conditioner that everyone in the green beauty world seemed to be gushing over.

Ursa Major: Skincare to Share

Ursa Major1

I’d be lying if I said converting my family and friends to organic and natural skincare has been an easy task. Everyone has their misconceptions and protests but in all honesty, it’s always easier for me to convince the ladies in my life of cleaner, greener skincare habits. The men in my life, well let’s just say they’re not really into it. And maybe that’s also due to men not having a very complex skincare routine or rather, no routine at all. My mission was to find unique and clean skincare products catering towards men that my fiance might be willing to try, but it proved harder than I thought. That is, until I was introduced to the ultra-cool, simplistic, natural and organic unisex skincare brand, Ursa Major.

Peachy Pretty: Lily Lolo Pressed Blush and Lip Gloss

LilyLolo_lipglossblush2

If you’re a lover of neutral or nude colors, peach-colored makeup is a great way to transition to bright, bolder colors. A variety of peach colors can range from neutral to more pigmented. I also love that in general, peach shades look good on all skintones. Known for their high performance mineral makeup, Lily Lolo has recently released two beautiful peach shades: Life’s a Peach Pressed Blush* and High Flyer Natural Lip Gloss*.
