Part 2: Which Green Beauty Subscription Boxes to Consider

This list isn’t long, however, these boxes truly epitomize the concept of the beauty subscription box: which is simply to deliver a surprise box of goodies that delight you every month (aka random monthly Christmas).

No-Makeup Makeup for Summer

Happy Summer, everyone, and this means no-makeup makeup until Fall! It’s late May and I’m already sweating the moment that I step outside! On extremely hot days aka all of the summer, I like to keep my makeup pretty minimal. I’ll do something simple during the day and dress it up at night with some eyeliner and a bold lip.

Trader Joe’s is a staple in life, if not life itself when you just can’t deal with grocery stores or Whole Foods (hey, we love Whole Foods too, but we also like to save money for things like when we break toes). I realized yesterday why I love Trader Joe’s so much and it has to be in this order: coffee samples where they don’t even care if you sample it twice, the super nice people who work there, and the selection of everything you […]
