Due to some recent allergies I have become somewhat of an expert on organic beauty and I thought, why not try mascaras even though mascaras are one of the few things I didn’t have to change from my routine. I figure, It can’t hurt to use a more natural mascara, right? But I tried a few organic mascaras a few years ago and they, ahem, kinda sucked. They either clumped like crazy or just slid off my lashes after a few hours of wear. It was a gooey mess.
I love finding great skincare products at the drugstore (and Target)! Luckily there are some truly amazing products to be found. Even organic products can now be found for a song. Here are some of the best skincare drugstore beauty finds. I was not paid for this post so know the products I am recommending I use and love. I…

Since I discovered last fall that I have developed allergies to at least a dozen chemicals (many of which are found in beauty products) I have had to literally change everything in my life. That includes not only what I put on my face and body. but what I use on my hair. Now I use organic shampoos and conditioners.
Valentine’s Day has come and gone and what are you left with? Dead roses. Not me. I would rather have a bottle of rose perfume I can wear all year long. Make that several bottles of rose perfumes. Truth is, I can take or leave a dozen roses but I cannot resist rose fragrances.
Let’s face it, most beauty trends for fashion shows are for just that, show. They can be very extreme or very minimalist (so you actually look at the clothes and not the models). However there are some beauty and hair trends from NYFW Fall ’17 that actually make it to real life from these shows. Just like you would not…
Valentine’s Day is supposed to be about the ones you love, but besides my husband there are a couple other men I love who are really important in my life…the men responsible for my hair. Ask any woman over the age of 35 you know and she will tell you her colorist and the person who cuts her hair are as vital as breathing. In my case they are both men and they both work at Sassoon Salon in NYC.
I have read women ingest anywhere between 3.7 pounds to 7 pounds of lipstick (that includes balms) in their lifetime (various reports all have different numbers). Yet if you think about it, ingesting anything you put on your lips that isn’t organic or somewhat healthy is kinda…gross. Once I learned I was allergic to metals and preservatives (which is in a lot of lipsticks and balms) I started researching healthier options. So in this post we are going to take a look at organic lip balms.
Ever since I learned this past November I have suddenly developed allergies to a lot of preservatives and metals found in skincare, beauty and makeup products – my life has been turned upside down. Finding a body wash without unwanted chemicals, metals and additives isn’t as easy as you’d think…well at least good ones.
I for one am completely over 2016. The year brought a lot of death, especially of famous people I adored and miss. So I am ready for 2017 and pray that a few other things die, like these trends that I can’t stand seeing any more! May they all go to the fashion and beauty graveyard.
When I recently learned I had developed skin allergies to most of the makeup and beauty products I have held near and dear to my heart – it was unnerving to say the least. I pay attention to what I put into my body, but never gave what I put on it much thought, until I was forced to. Finding foundations that are healthy and work really well has been my mission.
Occasionally, holidays, parties or the impending new year makes us ready for a new look. The simplest way to accomplish trying something new is with your hair (I just went for new bangs myself). Sassoon makes it a no-brainer and more importantly an easy decision with a personalized look just for you. It’s not hard to be inspired by Sassoon’s new A/W UTOPIA Collection. The collection draws on the 60-year brand heritage and demonstrates Sassoon’s ultimate high definition hair designs.
Beauty always comes at a price, but it doesn’t always have to be a high one. The holidays are the best time to take advantage of beauty gifts for others and of course yourself. Many companies offer special sets and throw in little extras you can get only once a year. So take full advantage. Here are some of our favorite beauty finds.
I feel you. Nobody wants to be a Grinch but you don’t have unlimited funds for holiday gifts for ALL of your friends and family either. No worries! I found some great gifts that all come in under $25. Welcome to Presentville…
I know we all wish we had unlimited funds to spend on friends and loved ones, but that’s not realistic. What is realistic are these amazing gift ideas I found that all come in under $50. Granted most (OK all) are for women, but let’s face it, women are more fun to shop for. Besides, the holidays mean beauty gift sets and we LOVE to give and receive them! Take full advantage of holiday gift sets since they are usually a brand’s best deals of the year.
