MAKEUP / 14.05.2017

  The time has come to immerse myself in another travel adventure. I'm excited to be going adventuring through the beautiful country of Ecuador and I'm excited to share my travel journey with you beautiful people! This trip has been a long time coming as I have done no traveling since my trip to Peru in May 2015. But Alas, I've gotten to a point in my life where I can take a nice vacation. I believe that taking a break is extremely important. Even if you don't go on a major vacation, taking time to unplug from your normal day...

Bedroom / 10.05.2017

  Today's post is all about creating a beautiful bedroom staple, night stands. As you may have already read in my previous post, I moved into my new apartment a little over a week ago (wow, it's already been a week!) and I don't quite have all of the furniture that I want for my new nest.

Check out Sydney's awesome work out tutorial in, what else, Outdoor Voices.   Outdoor Voices is a technical recreational apparel line that functions as well as it feels. I'm a newbie to the Outdoor Voices line. As a sustainable focused blogger, I often bypass new brands...

Live Well / 04.05.2017

  It's week 3 of the Fit Body Reboot and it could not hit at a better time in my life. You see, I just moved into my own place for the first time in over 4 years. That's right! For the past year and a half, I've been shacking with my folks and prior to that, I had roommates. So needless to say, this past week (or few weeks rather) have been full of emotions and some stress. Week 1 and 2 geared me up for this eventful time in my life. And after a very stressful and exhausting weekend...

A timeless collection of nature inspired hairpins. Saya hair pins are made from salvaged root wood from old plantation sites in Indonesia. By using this waste material Saya is not adding to the huge logging industry across the world and able to tell stories about issues we all care about. The Rainforests! For each purchase, they will plant up to 10 endangered tree species back into the rainforests across pilot sites in Indonesia.
