Celebrating National Make A Dog's Day With The Farmer's Dog

I always love the days I write about my two furry best friends, Melvin + Henry. They are my whole heart!!

And today we are thrilled to celebrate a very important special day….NATIONAL MAKE A DOG’S DAY. National Make A Dog’s Day today on October 22nd provides an opportunity to give all dogs the best day of their lives. The day not only encourages visits to shelters, but it is also a reminder to animal lovers everywhere to adopt instead of shop for a new furry best friend. Approximately 3.3 million dogs enter shelters in the United States annually, many being relinquished by their owners. Worse still, approximately 35% of the animals that enter shelters are euthanized. While numbers continue to decline, the need for adoption continues to be overwhelming. One sure way to make a dog’s day is giving them a new, loving home through adoption. So…Melvin and Henry have have finished two weeks of food from The Farmer’s Dog and we are here sharing our honest review!

Perfect Silky Hair With Iles Formula

You know silky hair when you see it: shiny, healthy, and free of tangles. But if you, like me, put your hair through the ringer, styling it with hot tools, using tons of product, and coloring it regularly, silkiness seems only but a dream. Luckily, with the right products, you and I both can improve the look and feel of our hair in just a few weeks! I was so tired of dealing with the dullness and the tangles daily/weekly/whenever so I was thrilled to partner with Iles Formula. I had heard fantastic things about their product range!!

Take Time For Yourself With Vitruvi

Sharing another wellness post and today is all about diffusing essential oils beautifully! I do enjoy integrating them into my daily routine! I’m a believer that scents can be super powerful. Whenever I get a whiff of the perfume my mom used I’m instantly transported back to those memories of her. I look at diffusing essential oils in the same way. The scent of lavender reminds me of calmness and rest and therefore is inherently relaxing to me. However the scent of orange is uplifting and energizing and makes me focus! Essential oils enhance your environment and set a gorgeous mood.

Today I’m excited to partner with Vitruvi to share their beautifully-crafted stone diffusers and essential oils.

Non-Toxic Skincare Products That Support Radiant Skin, A Healthy Body + A Happy Self

Happy October everyone!! It’s my favorite month and favorite season! Now if the weather would just follow suit.

I love that I have been able to be more choosy as to the products that I actually buy, use and recommend. I no longer feel that I’m compromising to use natural cosmetics; on the contrary, I’m actually finding that I prefer natural formulas and essential-oil-based fragrances more than conventional products. It seems that new chemical-free, paraben-free, toxin-free brands and products are popping up on the beauty scene almost every day, making it almost a no-brainer to begin to replace less-than-pure products with their simpler, cleaner counterparts.

Easy Ways to Cut Back On Your Disposable Plastic Use Featuring Brita

By now, you’re most likely pretty well versed in the negative effects that plastic has on both our bodies and our planet. BPA exposure from everyday plastic items has been found to have detrimental effects on our health while plastic in our oceans affects marine life and humans as well. Whether you’re motivated by keeping your own health in tip top shape, or you feel inspired to reduce plastic pollution on our planet (or both!) the first step is cutting back on our dependability on plastic.

When it comes to going green, small changes make a big difference. There are so many tiny tweaks that you can incorporate into your daily routine that really make a big difference when you add them all up. Say you give up plastic bags and plastic water bottles, for instance. It may not seem like much at first. But think of how much plastic you will save from landfills over the course of a month, a year, or a lifetime.

The Best Fall Scented Candles- DEHV Candle Co.

Fall is coming and has there ever been a better time of year to light a decadent candle, draw a bath, and just stay in? There’s no easier way to add a sense of luxury to day-to-day life, whether it’s an invigorating aroma on my desk while I work or relaxing aroma on the bedside table while I read at night.

So excited to introduce you to DEHV Candle Co. on the blog today!!! They smell so divine and are just so gorgeous in my modern home. DEHV candles are hand-poured into jars made from concrete. Unlike many, theirs do not contain any polymers, polyesters, and are entirely composed of natural concrete. Their hope is that you reuse your empty vessels as planters for succulents and cacti or starter pots for plants and herbs. They use 100% non-GMO soy wax, so they are very easy to clean out and upcycle- unlike paraffin wax that will leave a greasy stain and is tough to remove.

Bathtime Rituals With Skylar's New Body Bundle

BEST day ever!

Want to know why?!

Because it’s the launch day of Skylar Body! They are my absolute favorite fragrance company and now they have just added an ECO ultra-hydrating body lotion and body wash to their range of products!

I live for bath and body products actually.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh, bath time. Slyvia Plath was not joking when she said “There must be quite a few things a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them. Whenever I'm sad I'm going to die, or so nervous I can't sleep, or in love with somebody I won't be seeing for a week, I slump down just so far and then I say: "I'll go take a hot bath.” I create time in my days to have the luxury of doing the whole soak-and-scrub thing in a tub of bubbles! I am a Pisces. I need the water.

Gorgeous Hair With Leonor Greyl

While I can’t say that I’m one for high-maintenance hair on a daily basis even though I have hair extensions -I have learned how important it is to have a few key treatment products in your arsenal to use occasionally to give your hair and scalp a boost. Whether it’s a gentle volumizing shampoo, a leave in treatment for your scalp, or a pre shampoo oil treatment, the right treatment can keep your hair and scalp in tip-top shape so that you look great whether or not you decide to do the 45-minute blo-out with a blowdryer.

Insert my newest obsession..Leonor Greyl!

The story of Leonor Greyl begins with the meeting of two passionate human beings: Leonor, a hair care and beauty fanatic, and Jean-Marie, an engineer and very keen botanist. Together, they share a common desire: creating natural hair care products long before the ‘bio’ trend became a hit.
