Minus my massive allergy attacks and the erratic temperature changes, spring is one of my favorite seasons. It’s that time of year when everything is in its prime for a transition. The most obvious thing we do is switch out our clothing to meet the needs of the seasons, but what if the same practice applied to our skincare?
Saison Beauty is a San Francisco-based brand founded on the principle of seasonal skincare. Every season influences a change in our skin therefore, different ingredients and formulations should also adapt with it for the most effective treatment. Each seasonal collection from Saison is concentrated with the highest-quality, organic plant extractsfrom that season.
Pardon this late post, it’s been quite a busy month! My April box from Goodbeing came at a convenient time, right before my Bachelorette party weekend! I always love receiving trial-size products before a big trip since I’ll be able to try out new things and easily bring less with me. Overall, I was very impressed with this month’s box and how appropriate they were to take with me on my weekend trip to Myrtle Beach!
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 shopethically 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.
