Finally they’re here! Cream blushes are fantastic as they are longer-wearing and more versatile when compared to their powder counterparts. The cream blends in with skin and doesn’t rub off the way many powders do. These cream blushes can be applied with fingers, brushes, or cosmetic sponges.

A natural looking cream blush without the irritating chemicals! They are 100% natural, vegan, with no dyes!  This smooth and creamy blush provides a radiant, long-lasting color and a fresh healthy glow! Perfect for all skin types!

DIY Ribbon Pin Board

how to make a ribbon pin board

Hey guys! I’m in the process of redecorating my office space and as many of you know, this can get quite expensive. I was looking to buy a ribbon pin board/bulletin board and was shocked at how pricey they were! So I headed to my local craft store and decided to DIY this. My color scheme is white, black and gold, but you can choose any color to fit your current decor. I got the cork board and ribbon from Michael’s, the fabric is from Joannes, and the tacks from target. You can also buy batting, which is a cotton puffy material that makes the pin board “pop” and gives it a 3D effect. I omitted this step since I’m on a budget and it looks just as nice. Since I’m redoing everything, I had some old chairs that I painted and re-upolstered with this same fabric so I used the leftover fabric for this project!

Supplies:

  • Cork board
  • Fabric
  • Ribbon
  • Thumb tacks
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Batting (the cotton) this step optional.

  1. I cut the fabric and left enough space so I can fold it over.
  2. Cut the edges off to create a cleaner look
  3. like this 🙂
  4. Fold over the fabric and glue it to the cork board
  5. All glued then turn over…
  6. Lay your desired ribbon over the board in a criss-cross pattern.
  7. Place the thumb tacks where the ribbons meet
  8. Glue the ends of the ribbons to the back of the board. Make sure they are not loose so they hold notes etc.

This french bulletin board is very easy to make. I love that I can just stick a note or piece of paper to the ribbon and I don’t have to actually use a pin. It’s also very stylish and brings a little more life to the room. Will be showing more fun office decorating ideas soon! I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial!

Daydream Corrector Palette!

glory boon corrector

Hey guys! Have you seen my Daydream Corrector demo on YouTube?

This all natural concealer-correcting palette hides spots, dark circles, pimples, scars and provides a smooth, blend-able, non-toxic camouflage cover-up for all skin flaws.

Most flaws on our face are color-related flaws such as dark, bluish under-eye circles, blemishes or birthmarks. In order to mask the flawed color and make it less obvious, you need to use a neutralizing makeup corrector such as a green, yellow or lavender. This is where Daydream Corrector comes in! You get all four shades in one beautiful palette that’s easy to use, and did I mention it has a mirror?!

It comes with four colors…

★YELLOW: Warms skin tone and counteracts discoloration.
★LAVENDER: Brighten dull complexions.
★GREEN: Minimizes redness. Perfect for acne or rosacea.
★SALMON: Neutralizes blue undertones and darkness under the eyes.

Watch the video below for swatches!

What’s new? Perfume Oils!

plumeria perfume

Hey guys! New scents are in the shop! They are amazing and come in the cutest containers! These are different and not your typical “commercial” fragrances. Since discovering perfume oils, I have ditched wearing my overpriced name brand perfumes and I am enjoying collecting all sorts of interesting scents! autumn perfume

Why do I choose perfume oils over commercial alcohol based perfumes?

  • It’s long-lasting
  • It’s cleaner, richer, truer scent. Not harsh, overbearing, or overpowering
  • It has a longer shelf life
  • It’s less likely to cause allergic reaction
  • non-flammable
  • Affordable

Your typical alcohol–based perfume comes on very strong because fragrance in alcohol evaporate faster than they would on their own. This gives the impression that the perfume is 10 or 15 times stronger than it actually is. So when you first apply your fragrance, the aroma may sometimes seem harsh and overwhelming. It’s really the alcohol in perfume that causes the scent to disappear in two or three hours after using it. The fragrance has evaporated along with the alcohol!

Not to mention it’s Overpriced and made with 80-97 percent alcohol. Commercial perfumes are not long-lasting, Harsh, overbearing,  as well as a short shelf-life due to alcohol evaporation. It also has a high probability of causing allergic reactions and many are highly flammable.

Perfume oils, on the other hand are gentle and make great gifts for any occasion. They are super affordable and come in scents that people will actually enjoy, there’s a scent for everyone! perfume oil

I will keep adding more scents throughout the month. If you guys have any suggestions in what scents I should add to the shop, just let me know! honey perfume oil

September Favorites!

september favorites

Hi guys! It’s sweater weather and you know what that means…fall is here and it’s my favorite season! I thought I would do a September favorites since I’m loving some new products I’ve been using and I wanted to share them with you!

Since the colder months are coming, I wanted to get a hydrating moisturizer with SPF. As you know I’m really into natural wholesome beauty, so of corse I shop mostly at the whole foods beauty Isle. I love Whole Foods! The people who work there are always super helpful and I’m always happy with all my purchases!

I spotted the SANRE sparkling rose face cream and after testing it out on my hand, I knew I had to get it! It’s very hydrating and doesn’t leave you with a greasing feeling, plus it’s all natural! Since I’ve been using it, my skin has felt so mush better, smoother and softer! I just love it!

I also purchased a blush by Gabriel cosmetics in the color apricot. I think it’s a perfect color for fall and I’ve been wearing it often. It doesn’t make me break out and its all natural! Swatches on my hand below.

Final product that I’m loving is the Mineral Fusion lipstick in the color inspire. It’s the perfect natural pink and its very moisturizing! It’s the only lipstick I have in this brand but after trying it out and seeing the quality I will definitely be buying more! Best part it’s all natural as well!

Have you guys tried any of these brands?
