Many of you know that I’m currently in the process of planning my wedding. Actually, by now there are only 2 months till the big day! There have been a lot of requests for me to write about different aspects of my wedding planning but to be honest, I’ve been a bit hesitant to write these types of personal posts.
Let’s be honest, I don’t wear a full-coverage foundation every day nor do I necessarily need to. But there are definitely times when I yearn for those heavy-duty, long-lasting conventional foundation formulas that I could easily just slap on and forget about. Can you relate? Thankfully, I’ve been testing products from Sappho Organics and have found what I think is the highest caliber of organic liquid foundations. I feel no need to fall down the conventional makeup hole anytime soon.
This month’s Goodbeing box was probably the best box I’ve received so far! I’ve been receiving these boxes thanks to Goodbeing so that I can experience their services and share my honest response. Goodbeing is the “OG” personalized, monthly subscription box for natural beauty and wellness goods. Previously known as Goodebox, Goodbeing has very affordable pricing plans and partners with many trusted, top-notch brands to provide what I believe is the best subscription box out there for green beauty and wellness. For more info about Goodbeing and to see what I received in January and February, check out my post HERE.
Maybe it’s the annual arrival of spring cleaning or that dreaded need to purge old clothes, but every day I anxiously look into my cluttered closet and feel overwhelmed. Sometimes I want to give away all my clothes and start anew. As a regular contributor for Ecouterre, I’m constantly following the latest in eco-fashion and design, though it’s been hard to apply everything I see and learn in the industry to my own personal habits. I’ve been trying to shop ethically when it comes to fashion, donate unworn or old clothes, and revamp my wardrobe into one that reflects minimalism and quality pieces.
I don’t know if you’ve felt the momentum of my blog posts teetering off, but in all honestly, I’m going through a bit of “blogger’s block”. Don’t get me wrong, I still love blogging and discovering green beauty products, but I’ve just been feeling a major void in my motivation to write blog posts. Some days, I’ll type up full blog posts but never post them. I have memory cards full of photos I’ve taken only to never edit them and eventually, delete them all. While other days, I can’t even look at my laptop.
Last year, Sarita invited me to a lovely event at the West Village organic spa, Savor Spa. I failed to blog about the event, but posted some pictures on my Instagram where I met other bloggers, experienced an amazing all-natural facial, and played around with the spa’s skincare products, Om Aroma & Co. I also met Savior Spa’s founder, Angela Jia Kim, an inspiring woman and entrepreneur.
Take a look around the web and you’ll probably find any type of subscription box imaginable. Formerly Goodebox, Goodbeing is a personalized subscription box featuring 4-5 trial-sized natural beauty and wellness products shipped to your door every month. Goodebox was one of the first green beauty and skincare subscription boxes that I’d heard of since I started blogging and now as Goodbeing, the brand still continues to be a subscription box that you can trust for safe and healthy, expertly curated products.
I’ve been receiving Goodbeing boxes* to try out their new services and I wanted to share with you my experience so far as well as what was in the January and February boxes I received.

I’m always on the hunt for outstanding products and equally awesome places to shop. iHerb is a great place to find affordable, natural and organic personal care products, food, and home goods. Not only am I a fan of iHerb’s product selection and prices, but I also admire their commitment to the environment through many eco-friendly initiatives like using recycled packaging, providing paperless orders, donating profits to various international charities, and the use of carbon neutral UPS shipments.

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and while I believe it’s a silly commercialized holiday, I always think celebrating the ones you love or yourself is totally justified. If you’re single, treat yourself! Because you’re pretty damn awesome and deserve it.

This thoughtfully-curated skincare gift was inspired by sharing and receiving special moments of self-care with the ones you love. Read on to find out more about this limited-time offer and why you should pick it up before they’re sold out!
