 Shop Holiday Glam 


This wasn't my first time using Lumé Organic Infusions. I've been a regular fan of their Inner Glow supplements, several of their facial care products, and their natural body care. Their Outer Glow line incorporates organic oils and nutrition-packed herbs. The result is a variety of highly-effective yet gentle, all-natural products.

I was most excited to try their two new products - the Remove & Restore Cleanser & Makeup Remover and the Balance Botanical Toner.


Product Reviews

Our Favorite Lip Colors at Puckerd Cosmetics

Puckerd Cosmetics specializes in lip products, and I've had the pleasure of working with them before. Their shades are always beautiful, and I really love their formulas, so I was overjoyed to try some of their new Autumn and Holiday lip colors.

Meraki Polish Winter Collection 2019

The beautiful new Meraki Polish Winter Collection for 2019 can be summed up in three words - chic, modern, and colorful. From a vampy blue to a bold pink and feminine mauves, this collection is a must for the modern mani lover.

An Easy Holiday Makeup Tutorial

LBRI holiday Beauty Bundle review + LBRI

If liquid liner and a bold red lip are a little out of your comfort zone, I've got a makeup look that is equally festive for the holidays, yet it's much more subtle and wearable. Though it's just as pretty, with plenty of shimmer, and a hint of color.

Gift-Worthy Home Fragrances from PriSu

PriSu Reed Diffusers + natural essential

The essential oil reed diffusers and soy candles at PriSu make for the most gift-worthy home fragrances. The beautiful packaging fits in with both modern and traditional decor and adds a touch of luxury to any space. Each item comes neatly in a lidded box, ready for gift giving.
