WLDKAT Skin | A CBD Skincare Brand with Major Vibes

Friday, September 4, 2020


So I think it is pretty safe to say that when I saw CBD making its way into the beauty and skincare realm I was beyond excited.  I will admit I was consciously incompetent about my knowledge of CBD, but what I did know about it was that it was amazing!  My first edible CBD experience got me through hurricane shopping calmly and stress free, and if you have ever experienced hurricane preparedness in South Florida, then you know hurricane shopping is anything BUT relaxing LOL 🀣

Now that CBD had made its way into skincare, I felt it was my “skincare aficionado” responsibility to do my research to really understand the inclusion of CBD as an ingredient.  I voluntarily jumped into the CBD rabbit holeπŸ‡ Luckily this new project coincided with a new brand connection I had just made.  I was really excited when WLDKAT Skin reached out to me with the opportunity of trying out a few of their products and becoming a partner.  Keep reading to learn about the brand, my thoughts on a few of their goodies and what else I already have my eye on!

Where Have I Been Posting Lately?

My Adventress Magazine Contributions

So I am trying to make a more conscious effort of posting here on the blog on a more consistent basis.  I haven't completely stopped writing, as I don't think that will ever be possible, but sometimes posting on my own blog makes me feel like I am not living up to my own expectations.  Does that sound weird?  Traditionally, my blog posts are 1000+ words and maybe 3-5 images...all of it written, taken, and edited by me.  That is a lot of work!  

While I may not have been posting here on the blog, I have been making a few contributions to a new, online magazine.  Adventress Magazine is real stories by real women, and I am super psyched to get to be a part of it.  I have written three different articles so far, and content is definitely a more manageable size for me to start getting on a consistent posting schedule, and honestly, really trying to figure out where and how I want my content to be focused.  In the meantime, keep reading to enjoy my Adventress Magazine contributions, plus some of my fellow contributors' articles that I find especially helpful πŸ’–  

Cel Vegan & Cruelty Free Microstem Hair Care

Friday, July 3, 2020


My hair has been on a journey the last few years.  I went from salon and/or box color to using henna to deposit pigment on my all gray mane.  My hair is still a super vibrant shade of burgundy and I could not be happier.  The next step in this process is caring for my natural color and hair with good products.  Recently, I had the opportunity to try out the Microstem Hair Care System from Cel Beauty.  Keep reading to find out about this cruelty free, vegan friendly beauty brand and my experience with their microstem technology πŸ’‡

Petit Vour Vegan and Cruelty Free Subscription Service

It really wasn't necessary to twist my arm when Petit Vour so generously sent over their July 2019 beauty box for my editorial consideration πŸ˜„ LOL!  Needless to say, I did not hesitate to say Yes Please when they reached out πŸ’— I had been a long time subscriber for over a year, but had put my membership on hold to work my way through all the products I currently have in my own beauty stash πŸ’Ž 

This pause in my service doesn't mean I didn't constantly watch unboxings or look up spoilers! LOL! I still love getting that much anticipated sneak peek into what could potentially be showing up on my doorstep...Keep reading to learn about Petit Vour's vegan and cruelty free service and what I received in their July 2019 box✨
