Rock Out For Natural Skincare

When it comes to beauty, I am so picky about the products I use. I am lucky enough to try plenty of brands and types of products. Thankfully, I have found natural products to be the safest and most gentle on my skin. Even safe enough to use on my son’s skin, if I ever had to. Are you ready to explore natural skincare products?

But did you know that every flower has a symbolic meaning? Let’s find out what your favorite flower means shall we?

Are These the Most Opaque Nail Polishes?

Northern Nail Polish
Beauty Brite Disclosure
I enjoy pampering myself once in a while, but I’ll admit that I don’t regularly keep up with having my nails done. Mostly because I don’t have a lot of time to do them, and I can’t always justify spending money on getting my nails done when I can do them myself. On the flip side, I can never turn down the opportunity to test out a new (to me) nail polish brand to see how it stacks up to other, well-known brands. Spoiler alert — I may have found one of the most opaque nail polishes, and it comes from Northern Nail Polish.

High Quality Glasses with Affordable Low Prices

High Quality Glasses and Sunglasses that Come at an Affordable Low Price

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I’ve been wearing glasses for about four years; conveniently the same amount of time that my daughter has been alive. They weren’t kidding when they said that child birth would take away your best traits. With my little one; it seemed she sucked the iron out of my blood, took all of my Vitamin D, and zapped my eyesight. Unfortunately, I haven’t always had eye insurance so decent vision has been out of the question often.

Even with eye insurance through my employer, the traditional getting fitted and ordering glasses with the eye doctor was always a long and expensive process. My boyfriend, on the other hand, doesn’t have any insurance and his vision is worse than mine! So when he broke his glasses, having him fitted for glasses was completely off the table with the bills we had at the time.

EyeBuyDirect Offers High Quality Glasses with Affordable Prices

Most online glasses companies have cheap frames and very few options that complement everyone’s face shape. Glasses should be an extension on one’s personally and should fit like a second pair of skin. EyeBuyDirect has an option to upload a picture of yourself and try on all their frames prior to purchase. If you still aren’t sure which pair to try, take their online quiz to find an awesome pair of frames! Flip through over 1,000 men’s and women’s frames to find one that you like. Once ordered, rest easy knowing you have a 14 day fitting period and a 12 month product replacement guarantee.

I was fortunate to try EyeBuyDirect and was able to order three pairs of eyeglasses and a pair of sunglasses. EyeBuyDirect’s mission statement is to provide everyone with fashionable glasses in different shapes and sizes to be worn for any occasion; all while being affordable. I got two pairs of eyeglasses for myself, one pair of eyeglasses for my boyfriend, and a pair of prescription sunglasses.

The online order form was easy to follow and came with step by step instructions. I was able to create glasses to fit my exact everyday needs. I ordered a pair with Anti-Glare lenses for driving as well as a pair that reduces Blue Light and decreases Glare from computer screens. Each pair came carefully packed as to ensure there was no damage in transport. They also came with a carrying pouch that can double as a cleaning wipe and a use/care guide.

Even with all the extra’s added, I averaged about $100-$120 per pair which is a HUGE improvement from the usual $250 at the eye doctor!

Buy One Give One; One Action. Enormous Impact

Right now, there are 2.5 billion people who cannot see without aid. EyeBuyDirect offers a program partnered with Vision for Life that offers a new pair of glasses to an individual in need for each pair purchased.

Unfortunately, my boyfriend snapped one of the ear pieces off his glasses about two weeks into wearing them. He has a bad habit of wearing glasses in bed and falling asleep with them on. This time around, he had taken them off in his sleep and tucked them under his pillow. When he rolled over, we heard that dreaded *snap* sound. We ordered him a replacement pair from EyeBuyDirect and the order process was just as seamless and his new pair of glasses will arrive in about 10 days.

Most of my adult life I have suffered from acne. Because I frequently mess with my face, I also have acne scaring and enlarged pores. To be quite honest, my skin sucks. I often jump on bandwagons to try the latest craze or switch from one top ranked skin care line to the next trying to find relief from painful, cystic acne. However, even with the extensive list of products out there, I have a hard time finding anything that will tackle the deep craters that are my acne scars.

Add Some Glam to Your Holiday Makeup

Add Some Glam to Your Holiday Makeup

Beauty Brite Disclosure

 

Party season has arrived, and celebrations abound. With so many different events to attend, I want to look fresh, festive, and fabulous. Helping to add some glam to my holiday makeup looks is the Happy Together Collection from Jane Iredale.

Jane Iredale Happy Together Collection

As a huge supporter of this cruelty-free, clean beauty brand, I’m always excited to try new Jane Iredale products. I absolutely adore the festive fairies, fluttering butterflies and sparkling snow themed packaging of this holiday collection.

The Happy Together Limited Edition Collection includes the Let’s Party Eye Shadow Kit, Dance with Me Refillable Compact, Kiss and Tell Lip Stain/Gloss Kit, and Butterfly Bag. All of the products are vegan and gluten-free. The brand was kind enough to send the compact, palette and lip kit to review.

Although I don’t have the Butterfly Bag, I did want to mention that a portion of the sales from this bag benefits SaveOurMonarchs. This non-profit is dedicated to saving the endangered monarch butterflies.

Holiday Makeup – Let’s Party Eye Shadow Kit

Holiday Makeup_Jane Iredale Let's Party Palette

When I’m creating my holiday eye looks, I like to play with a little bit of shimmer and color. The Let’s Party Eye Shadow Kit lets me do both. The palette features five shimmery Jane Iredale PurePressed shadows, including:

  • Spree – pale pink with subtle shimmer
  • Wing-ding – plum with subtle shimmer
  • Soiree – royal blue with subtle shimmer
  • Shindig – shimmery jade green
  • Hootenanny – shimmer chocolate brown

Holiday Makeup - Jane Iredale Let's Party Palette Swatches

With names like Hootenanny and Wing-ding, it’s hard not to love this beautifully packaged palette. It’s also hard not to like the variety of colors in the palette. The pop of green and blue are pure fun and pair very well with the pink, brown and purple shadows. In addition to the shade options, the shadows are pigmented, long-lasting and crease resistant.  They also contain botanical extracts that soothe and nurture skin. This is ideal for mature lids that can often look crepey.

I had so much fun testing out this palette. I really love the holiday makeup looks I created, from the icy pink with a blue accent to the smoky green and chocolate.

Jane Iredale Refillable Compact

Holiday Makeup_Jane Iredale Dance with Me Compact

One of the most unique aspects of this holiday makeup collection is the Dance with Me refillable compact. I love the fluttery butterflies on the cover. It makes for such a nice gift. Since I already have one of these compacts, I’m going to pass this one on to my niece who’s a butterfly fan.

This compact is designed to hold refills of Jane Iredale bronzers, powders or foundations. I use mine to hold my Warm Peachy Pink Bronzer refill. It’s the perfect on-the-go blush, bronzer, highlighter compact that I can use on my face or eyes.

 

Kiss and Tell Lip Stain/Gloss Kit

Holiday Makeup_Jane Iredale Kiss and Tell Lip Kit

This adorable little set features two lip stains and a shimmer gloss for all your holiday makeup needs.

  • Craving – light salmon stain
  • Fascination – rosy pink stain
  • Crystal – clear shimmer

Holiday Makeup_Jane Iredale Kiss and Tell Swatches

Though I’ve tried lipsticks from Jane Iredale, I had yet to try her stains or glosses. As with everything from the brand, I’m impressed. The stains not only condition and protect my lips but also don’t feather or move.Once you apply Craving or Fascination your good to mingle from event to event.

Holiday Makeup_Jane Iredale Kiss and Tell Lip Swatches

As I mentioned above, there is also a lovely clear, shimmery gloss. You can wear Crystal alone or pair it with the stains. I really like the way the gloss looks with the stains. It adds a little something-something to any lip look. The formula is conditioning, non-tacky, and doesn’t feature any petroleum. Essentially, it’s a gloss that’s also good for your lips so it won’t interfere with all that holiday eating and drinking.

With the Jane Iredale Happy Together Collection, you’ll party hop your way to fabulous holiday makeup looks all season long.

What’s your favorite piece from this collection? Are you holiday party ready?
