  • BFF – Beauty Fabulous Find – VitaBath

    I am always on the hunt for beauty products that work well and are affordable so you don’t have to take out a personal loan just to purchase your beauty necessities. One of my new personal faves has to be VitaBath. Growing up, VitaBath was a part of my mother’s beauty routine. She swore by their skin softening bath washes and shower gels. Several years later, I am now creating my own VitaBath tradition with their newest launch – VitaBath Fragrance Collection. The new Fragrance Collection consists of four scents:

    Cupcake Couture: Sweetness – Rich, creamy and decadent are the hallmarks of this sweet fragrance.

    Fruit Fanatic: Fruity with a hint of floral – cherries, apples, oranges and grapefruits make the perfect fruity treat.

    Bloom: Sensual and feminine – exotic and flirty florals come together with a hint of sea breeze.

    Spa Day: Fresh, clean and crisp  – lavender and cucumbers combine for a spa-tastic scent.


    Stay tuned for a review!

  • Cruelty-Free Cosmetics 101

    I love animals. I have been an animal lover as far back as I can remember. Growing up in sunny Southern California, my house was always filled with the sounds of laughter and fun and animals. We had dogs and cats who were more than pets, they were considered family members. My mother and father raised my brother and I to be respectful of all animal life and to acknowledge that animals had feelings just like humans do. Growing up, I wanted to be a veterinarian until I found out that there was surgery and scalpels and blood involved. Being that I am quite squeamish, I soon realized that a career in animal medicine wasn’t a wise decision but my love for the animal kingdom never changed.

    In the past few years, I have become more aware of the issues of animal testing and animal cruelty. As I have begun to move away from eating meat and am slowly transitioning into a vegan/vegetarian lifestyle, I am beginning to look into all of the areas where I may or may not be impacting the animal kingdom in a negative way. One way I do have a lot of control over is my beauty regimen and the products I choose to use for my daily routine. In order to help further the cause of eliminating animal testing all together, I am no longer purchasing items or brands that test their products on animals.

    Fortunately,  there are countless cosmetic and beauty brands that do not test on animals. These companies have made a concerted effort to lessen the already overwhelming amount of cruel testing on innocent animals who live their entire lives within the confines of laboratories.

    Here are a few incredible brands that I highly recommend checking out as they are cruelty-free which is truly a beautiful thing!

  • I’m Currently Obsessed With….Bliss Presidential Election Lotions

    I try to remain politically neutral when I post here as the main focus of my blog is beauty and style.

Well, it looks like Bliss has decided to get in on the race with their limited edition presidential election lotions. There’s the O’bama which is a vibrant, energetic orange scented lotion while the opposition can check out Mint Romney for that refreshing, clean aroma.

    If you’re wondering how you can get your hands on one of these uber cool lotions, it’s simple. Just spend $50 or more on Bliss products or services and you’ll get the opportunity to take home one of these politically charged lotions. Yuo can learn more info at
