I know it’s basically mandatory to say this at the beginning of every favorites, but where did the month go? September, I feel like we were just getting to know each other and now you’re gone. Honestly, it kind of freaks me out that time is moving so quickly these days. Despite time flying, I have some favorites to share with you and as always there’s a bit of everything.
Up until this point I’ve featured what I deem to be fairly affordable products, but today I’m breaking the routine. We’re talking green beauty luxury, specifically the Triesta Organics moisturizing haircare collection that retails for $110. Quality natural, cruelty free and vegan beauty products are usually a bit more expensive, but this is a new level. A few months ago they ran a promotion to get the whole set for just $15, so I had to try it.
Should you invest in your haircare? Let’s find out.
I wish I could tell you the one trick to doing it all, but the balancing act isn’t easy. There have been days where I’m not very active online, nights where I don’t get enough sleep and weeks where I don’t exercise. Not exactly my dream life… I’ve been back to class for over month now and I’m finally finding my groove, but honestly, finding balance in life can be hard! Hard, but not impossible. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with your academics, blog and everything else I hope my tips help you get back on track.
It’s not often that I make an impulse purchase, but I made a sneaky detour into my grocery store’s natural beauty section, which is surprisingly great, and I saw the Acure Organics Radical Resurfacing Treatment. You know I love their seriously glowing serum and brightening scrub, so I decided to give it a try. The claims? Reduce blotchiness and hyperpigmentation, which are all too familiar to me. I’ve used it for one month now and honestly, I’m conflicted.
A few weeks ago, I gave my skincare routine a little makeover. My previous routine was preventing my skin from getting worse, but I knew it could be better. I finally changed how I cleanse my skin and it changed everything! All this time, I’ve been focusing on finding the right serums and moisturizers when how I washed my face was the culprit.
I’ve been aware of oil cleansing for a couple years and used it to take off my makeup, but I never realized what a difference oil could make by using it as my primary cleanser. The best part? It’s suitable for all skin types! If you have dry, oily, mature, acne prone, textured, irritated or sensitive skin, you have to try oil cleansing. My skin is the best it’s been in years.
I love when my hair is done. When I have effortless voluminous waves and bangs that are behaving, I just feel a bit better. Love good hair days, hate doing my hair. Are you with me? We don’t often talk about hair here, but I thought it was time I shared how I wash mine about once a week and maintain my look with minimal effort.
When I started my blog I thought fashion would be the bulk of my content, but that’s not quite what’s happened. Currently, my ethical fashion content is shopping guides, which are fun, but I want to show you my style and prove that ethical fashion isn’t boring or granola.
There’s a bit of a problem though… My current closet is uninspired and missing key items. On the bright side, it gives me an opportunity to share my process of refreshing my wardrobe ethically and on a budget. Let’s do it.
