ILIA Beauty Silken Shadow Sticks & Pure Eyeliner

ILIAfall1

Every new release that ILIA Beauty makes tugs on my heart strings and my wallet. Of course, with their newest Fall 2015 Collection featuring eyeshadow sticks, eyeliners, liquid foundations, and makeup brushes, I couldn’t resist. I’m always drawn to eye products and while I wanted to snatch up all twelve new eye products, I restrained myself and only picked up three. I bought mine as soon as I saw Credo Beauty had them in stock. Here are my thoughts:

BottegaOrganicaCreams

Bottega Organica is a natural, organic skincare brand formulated with farm-fresh ingredients and healthy, effective scientific processes. There is so much to say about this high quality, thoughtfully-crafted brand that it requires such care and reflection when writing about them. I find it difficult to describe in words the caliber and luxury of these quality formulas but I’m hoping my in-depth commentary and photographs will suffice…

Power to the Brows: My daily brow essentials

Eyebrow Essentials 1

Growing up, I had extremely thick, hairy eyebrows that for the most part, I was extremely embarrassed of. Thin, heavily plucked brows were the sign of the times and everywhere I looked I got the message that my naturally bushy brows were anything but cute. As early as middle school, my aunt took me to get my first eyebrow waxing and the obsession snowballed from there. In retrospect I wish I’d learned to own the natural growth and personality of my eyebrows and focused on proper brow maintenance rather than plucking furiously every night.

Nowadays, the trends all point to full and healthy brows and I think it’s about time. I’m more in-tune with natural brow care and sadly, trying to regrow my eyebrows back to their natural, hairier existence. I’ve never shared about my favorite eyebrow products before, so here are the beauty products I’m currently using to maintain a polished, healthy brow:

Stop With Those Plastic Bags Already: Bag The Habit

Bag the Habit Market_Set

Out of many things that irritate me on a normal basis, one of my biggest pet peeves is when cashiers automatically assume I’d like a plastic bag with my purchase. The scene of the crime is usually at the grocery store and more often than not, I either have to stop everything and re-pack my items into reusable bags I brought with me, or stomp off with a handful of plastic bags feeling defeated and upset.

I’ll admit, as a busy woman on-the-go it’s easy to forget  to take my reusable tote bags everywhere with me and let’s face it, hard to find bags that aren’t dorky-looking nor require extra space. That’s where Bag The Habit comes in, with beautiful, ergonomic, and convenient reusable bags made from 100% eco-friendly fabrics.

*There’s also a special deal for my readers after the jump!

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?
