I love curly hair which is why this year I asked Santa for the T3 Micro Whirl Trio convertible curling iron. Not only is this iron the cutest thing ever, hello bright white and rose gold combo, it’s also one of the best irons I’ve ever used! I typically avoid clipless curling irons because they’re not the best for easy everyday use, however, I definitely will be using this iron more often now that I see how easy it is to use- Simply click in the barrel of your choice, turn on and go!
I was spoiled by Santa as this T3 Whirl Trio comes with three interchangeable barrels- A 1″ straight barrel, a 1.25″ tapered barrel and lastly, a 1.5″ straight barrel which probably will be my favorite of the bunch as I love bigger, more glam curls. In the photo above I used the 1.25″ tapered barrel which gave me a super tight perfect curl with lots of bounce! I had not finished my hair yet as I stopped to do the rest on Periscope so please forgive the unfinished look here. This also comes with barrels that have clips as well, so, if you want just a basic curling iron barrel, they have that too!
Kiss frizzy hair goodbye thanks to these super cute, eco-chic hair wraps by Hubalou! These bamboo-fiber wraps not only ensure your hair stays frizz free, but they also prevent the damage that typically comes from using terrycloth or microfiber towels! Traditional bathroom towels act similar to Velcro, grabbing individual hairs, pulling curls apart, causing breakage and adding to frizz. Who knew right!?
So, want to keep your natural curls flawless, frizz-free and fabulous? Give these colorful and cute Hubalou wraps a try! Don’t have curly hair? Have no fear, these are amazing for all hair types, as everyone can benefit from damage and frizz free hair right!? I have pin straight hair and really do love these for drying my hair each day.
To Use: As soon as I get out of the shower, I brush my hair and then wrap my hair up while applying my makeup. Once I am done with makeup, I bring my hair down and then style as normal.

Have you ever wondered the difference between juicing and smoothies? Which is healthier and why? Or, perhaps you’re wanting to start a juice cleanse but you’re not so sure if it’s healthy for you? Today I am chatting all things liquid fruit thanks to this special one on one with Marra St. Clair, the co-founder of Project Juice!
Before we start this Q & A, here’s a little info on Project Juice. I first discovered Project Juice online a few months back when I was in serious need of a juice cleanse. After just one online order of fresh Organic juice and nut milk, I was hooked, they have so many awesome flavors I really could not wait to be back for more. Not only is Project Juice 100% Organic, their juices are always cold-pressed, delivered fresh to your door.
While they do make it easy to order online, they also have a handful of stores around Northern and Southern California, think an all Organic Jamba Juice, only better! Their stores are stocked full of the yummiest foods, smoothies, and juices, I really would eat here every single day if I could.
Now that you know a bit more on the brand and what they carry, here are the questions I had for them, perhaps to make the juice/cleanse process a bit easier to understand, and to shed a bit more light on this awesome company I have grown to love, let’s chat!
It’s not every day I come across 100% Natural lines that I truly enjoy, so when I do, I have to share! Meet Mettā Skincare, a range of All-Natural skincare products created for you and your skin with an environmental and social consciousness in mind! Becuase it’s super chilly out, and I have been playing around with a ton of new hydrating lotions, I am here today to share the two new Winter approved products I recently tried out from this line!
Mettā Hand Balm-
Have super dry or cracked hands? If so, this Certified Organic, East African Shea Butter & Calendula infused Olive Oil Hand Balm is most certainly for you. Designed to hydrate hands, nails, cuticles, heels, knees and elbows, this lotion feels so soothing on the dry areas of my skin, I just can’t get enough, especially with the light but calming Lavender scent.
To Use: This balm is super rich so just a tiny bit goes a long way, apply as needed, to dry areas of your skin.
For the past year now, I have been experimenting with pretty much every Organic or Non-Toxic skincare line on the market. From trying out smaller, homemade products to lathering up in some of the most luxurious brands, I really do feel like I have tried it all and can finally share my #1 choice for skincare- Kypris. Because Kypris has a variety of items, I figured it was well overdue that I do an entire blog focused not only on what each product does, but why I have decided to make this my #1 choice among hundreds of others! So, without further rambles, check out my official Kypris Skin Care Review below!
Why Kypris Stands Out-
I was fortunate enough to meet the owner of Kypris a few months back while in Arizona. It was my lucky day because not only did I get to meet Chase, I also got to sit in on her product demonstration which thoroughly explained each product and how/why it was made.
If you are lucky enough to meet Chase Polan yourself, the first thing you will notice is that this girl knows her stuff. For years I wanted my own skincare line, and then you meet her, someone who has been formulating her line for over 15 years, and you realize… you really have no business making a line haha. Chase is so smart it’s awesome, she can tell you what every single ingredient is in the line and why it’s so important to use on the skin. Everything she has created has been years and years of trial and error and she is always looking for ways to improve the line, truly making some of the best, cleanest skin care available today.
Looking for the perfect bronzer to provide that just back from vacation gorgeous glow? This 99% Natural Antonym Baked Blush in the color Copper has been my go-to pressed bronzer of the moment as it’s the prettiest color ever and made with Certified Organic ingredients!
These bronzers are unique because they are made from an innovative baking process that transforms the blush creme into a fine powder. The cream is then baked in terracotta pans that naturally gives it the domed shape you see here! Swirls of beautiful peaches, golds, bronzes, and melons are added to each blush before baking, giving each its own unique color.
These baked powders still have a creamy texture to them, however, they sit very lightly on the skin and always apply super smooth, never muddy! Once applied, this provides the perfect sun-kissed, warm contrast, with just a splash of shimmer.
Love peonies as much as I do? If so, this Violet Skincare Review is one you won’t want to miss because I finally found an all natural skincare line that actually uses real Peony extract to scent their products! Meet Violet Skin Care, a full range of pure essential oil blends and plant-based fragrance oils derived solely from natural, raw botanical sources! I will start this review off by telling you all about my all time favorite item from this line, their luxurious, ultra-moisturizing White Peony Body Oil!
White Peony Body Oil-
Talk about pure heaven in a bottle, this White Peony Body Oil has to be the most delicious smelling product I have come across thus far! No really, this is the best smelling product I have found to date and my boyfriend even agrees! Wondering what makes it smell and feel so amazing?
Made with Organic Apricot Kernel Oil, Organic Grapeseed Oil, Jojoba Oil, White Peony Extract, Coconut Oil, Green Tea Extract, and Bulgarian Rose Oil, this body oil is truly liquid gold. As if the oil alone wasn’t enough, there are also dried Peony petals inside, making the presentation an A+ as well! If you, or anyone you know, is a Peony lover, this body oil is essential!
