Happy Thursday! Doesn’t it just feel like summer is in FULL swing these days?? Something about the week after the 4th always has me feeling the happy summer energy! On Monday night we went to listen to some live music with friends and I think that’s what really kicked off this “summer” feeling.
Let’s talk makeup! Specifically, non-toxic makeup (the best kind in my personal opinion). As you might know, my passion for non-toxic products has continued to blossom over the last 6 months. If you haven’t read my previous posts chatting about non-toxic skincare products & why I made the switch to safer products, they can be found here & here. Honestly, after learning about all the crazy chemicals that are PACKED into our personal care products, I haven’t looked back. I mean, how can you learn that products we are willingly using are directly linked to things like cancer and infertility and NOT do anything?! I’ve cleaned up a bunch of my products- think makeup, haircare, skincare, etc. I am genuinely so passionate about bringing to light the fact that there are products out there that not only work so well and make us feel beautiful, but also don’t have tons of nasty crap in them. At this time, I’m not fully nontoxic but definitely have made huge shifts in switching over to many safer products! It all about awareness & mindfulness in regards to what we put on and in our bodies so we can make an educated decision. You know?
A little over a month ago, I made the decision to begin to transition into the realm of non-toxic beauty. This is something that has quickly become a HUGE passion of mine. I became a Beautycounter consultant, & haven’t really looked back. In case you missed my first post, I talked about why I’m choosing safer beauty products with Beautycounter here. To sum it up, after learning about the very harmful/ dangerous chemicals that are in our personal care products, it became something I couldn’t turn a blind eye to anymore. I said yes to having a girlfriend send me some Beautycounter skincare products and have been HOOKED ever since. Let me start by saying that I really l loved my skincare routine prior to Beautycounter. I had used my former line of products for over a year but decided that I should keep an open mind to trying Beautycounter because of the whole non-toxic thing. I had tried non-toxic products in the past that were frankly very disappointing so I wasn’t expecting much from the Beautycounter skincare lines. I tend to be super skeptical when trying new skincare/ beauty products because I try a lot that doesn’t agree with my super sensitive skin. Upon that first night trying some items from the Beautycounter line, I was so pleasantly surprised and impressed!!
Over the last months, there have been many shifts in my life. I actually had the feeling when 2018 begun, that it was going to be a year filled lots of changes. In a good way. Like many of you know, we recently moved to Sonoma County. Dylan started a new job and I have some upcoming projects for Love Inside & Out that I can’t wait to share more of soon.
The two things that I love talking, learning, sharing, and researching the MOST in general and on this blog are all things wellness and beauty. These are two of my biggest passions and are truly the two topics I feel like I could learn about for my whole life and never get bored. To clarify, I am passionate about finding the absolute best wellness & beauty products/ beauty tips and tricks that can help us FEEL and look our best. It TRULY lights up my day when I receive a message from one of you letting me know that you have fallen in love with a product I’ve recommended.
