Keeping Her Memory Alive

Keeping Her Memory Alive - Isabella Grace Bloom Necklace

Beauty Brite Disclosure

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I’m always looking for ways to keep her memory alive. My beautiful mother passed away in 2009. It was very unexpected and left me with an angel now watching over me and my beautiful children.

My mother was my very best friend, I knew I could count on her for anything and that she would support me no matter what. God for sure gained an amazing lady when he chose her as one of his angels. So naturally Mother’s Day is very hard for me, but I’ve found something I think will be a wonderful keepsake not only for me to keep her memory alive but to eventually pass down to my children as well….

Transparency is the new trend; throughout modern society, people are endeavoring to learn more about what they’re eating, what they’re wearing (did you know that, according to a recent mindbodygreen article, one fast-fashion T-shirt “uses 700 gallons of water” to be made?!), and where their trash is going (check out The Story of Stuff for more on that subject). The beauty world is also following this trend by heading down the vegan and cruelty-free road. While “vegan” does not necessarily mean perfect, its “cruelty-free” partner is usually the tagline that actually sells me on a product.

Three Ways To Boost Your Beauty Quotient

Three Ways To Boost Your Beauty Quotient-AHAVA-Philip B-Jojoba Co Australia

Beauty Brite DisclosureMy skin, well, sometimes we have a love/hate relationship. My hands especially tend to be dry all the time due to the constant hand washing that I put them through during cleaning, meal prep and just general trying to avoid the spread of germs. And then there’s my face. I’ve been noticing some dry spots developing occasionally over the last year or so. They’re not bad, just a bit of an annoyance. And my long hair has been dry, too. I really think it’s because I don’t drink enough water, but I’m glad to have some beauty products to help out with these issues, as well.

Lately, I’ve been using three really awesome beauty products that are helping me like what I see when I look in the mirror. AHAVA, The Jojoba Company Australia, and Philip B® are most definitely on my “good product” list for the benefits I’ve been enjoying due to using them…. [read more]

Honor Mom With A Handmade Bouquet

I love flowers, however, I haven’t figured out how to grow them in containers. We live in an apartment, so we don’t have our own yard to plant flowers. I’ve tried Marigolds and Pansies but they never lasted very long. I think I neglected them too long between waterings. I also love houseplants! I love having several different houseplants in our living space. They help brighten up any room.

Can I be completely honest with you? Most days, motherhood doesn’t make me feel glamorous. It’s a rewarding job, but it can leave me feeling very tired at the end of the day. You will usually find me in my typical “uniform” around the house of a ponytail, yoga pants, and a cotton t-shirt. There are meals to cook, jobs to work, rooms to clean, and a never ending pile of laundry to do.

Beauty Brite Disclosure

When it comes to all-natural and vegan makeup lines, I’ve discovered a common idea that they are not as high-quality as other brands.
