All their products are crafted by hand, all-natural, non GMO, gluten free, vegan friendly, and made in the U.S.A.! When making their soaps the use a new process called, “The Rad Process”, which is a combination of a hot/cold process that allows them to create bars of soap within 24 hours!  They have recently partnered with Death Wish Coffee and currently hold the world’s most caffeinated body-care!! how cool, right!?  they also won the Intuit Quickbooks Super Bowl Ad beating out 15,000 small businesses!!

I have truly loved each of these products and highly suggest giving them a try!! They can also make for great gift boxes for any occasion!!

Emerald City Shuga-Bubs

This may now very well be my all time favorite scrub! For starters, the smell is so so fresh!! and the aroma fills my bathroom leaving a trace of cucumber- which I love 😉  The exfoliating beads in the soap are also great– love the moisturizing touch! also, did I mention it has Japanese matcha tea infused in it!!!  pour on those antioxidants and heel your skin!!

American Beauty Youth Preserving Cream

I received this RAD soap box last week & have used this youth cream twice! It’s going to be my goal to keep it in my weekly routine as a full moisturizer! it’s ingredients are all natural and the blend helps aid in promoting healthy skin!

Chaga Antioxidant Natural Body Bar

So I after I shot this blog post I left this bar of soap sitting on the counter.. no joke, when I got back home it had my bathroom smelling the best it’s ever smelt!  the citrus scent is addicting and you won’t be able to get enough of this bar!! It’s an all around great cleansing soap!

White Lace Romper

White Lace Romper

The moment I put this romper on I fell in love!! The lace is so rich looking and the fit is beyond perfect!! It’s not too tight, it’s the perfect length, and it shows just enough skin!! It has a pretty, feminine look to it.. yet classy at the same time!! I haven’t quite decided where I am going to wear it yet, but I know something will come up 😉 and like I said in Friday’s post, rompers are my favorite thing to wear!!

Happy Monday!!! Have a great week!

a Pink, Fringe, Tassel Dress

Pink, Fringe Backless Shift Dress  //  Thora Sandal  Tory Burch  //  Teal Tassel Necklace (try Etsy for all different styles & affordable options– I love these) // Mini Crossbody Leather Bag Rebecca Minkoff

Happy National Pink Day!!!  I originally had another post scheduled for today then I found out it’s PINK DAYYY.. and what better way to celebrate than with the cutest PINK, fringe, tassel dress ever!?  Honestly, I have had this in my closet since the end of March & have been waiting to shoot it as a coverup by the pool.. but the more I looked at it, the more I thought, “I would totally wear that as a dress!!”  So I styled teal accessories with it and some simple sandals, then called it a day! This color combinations is one of my absolute favorite!! It’s perfect for summer days.. just like this light weight dress!!! & the back tassels are too adorable! they make the dress just so darn cute! I can’t get enough of it!! definitely one of my favorite looks of the month!

Floral Feels

The It Girl” Dress Calypso Boutique

I love this dress!!!!! ok.. let me say it again… I love this dress!!! so so so so much! the flirty style, flowy fabric, tassel strings, and floral design is just so adorable! It’s a great dress to throw on.. whether you are going out with the girls, running errands around town, taking a shopping trip, or off for a date night!  A simple wedge or heel (love these!) will dress it up and some flats or gladiators (try these!) are great if you are going for a casual look!  since the print is so busy minimal jewelry is best (in my opinion)!  Just keep it simple and use the dress as your statement piece 😉

Happy Hump Day!!!! 3 days til Friday!!

Eye Makeup

Anastasia Brow Gel  |  Anastasia Brow Wiz

For all you eyebrow lovers out there, these 2 things need to be your next purchase!  I apply the brow wiz pencil first, which is great for coloring in your brows! It gives you the perfect color, definition, and brings details to your eyes!! Brush first with one end, then color with the other! After that I use the tinted brow gel to add fullness and highlights to my brow hair! I never used this product before but after this week I never want to walk out of the house without it!! It does a great job filling in brow hairs & shapes them perfectly!

MAC Eyeliner 

ever since I started wearing eyeliner, in like 8th grade, I’ve been committed to the MAC brand. I just love the pixel look it leaves on my eyes, the creamy texture of it, how it lasts all day, and is averrable in so many colors!

MAC Eye Brushes 

It’s so important to use the right brush when it comes to applying eyeshadows or eye makeup.  To get the look you want, blend perfectly, and mix & match your colors, make sure you read up on what brush to use and when.  I know over the past couple of years I have been lazy when applying my shadows, but just recently I was taught by a makeup artist on how to use various brushes.  It really does make a world of difference!

Glamour Volume Boosting Lashes

Want fuller lashes!? Want your eyes to pop!? try boosting eye lashes!!!! I love, love, love, love them! the extra length and definition can really bring attention to your eyes! and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to look into beautiful eyes!  &&& these photograph so well!  If you have any big events coming up, these are your go to!

 

 

Let me know if you have any questions!! Shoot me an email, comment below, or dm me on instagram! happy to help with all the “eye” tips I can give (or try to haha)

Happy Tuesday!!! xoxo, T
