Fusion Naturals Vegan Collagen Booster and Facial Elixir Mask First Impressions

I have been a fan of inner beauty care, just as much as outer beauty care, especially as I have noticed my skin's texture and elasticity "evolve" a bit with ageπŸ’› I will say though, for 43 I think I look pretty damn good LOL 😏 I really think making my skincare and self care a priority has played a huge part in that, plus there are some really great genes in my family.  

So, when I was given the opportunity to try some new goodies from Fusion Naturals I just couldn't say no!  They were kind enough to send over their Vegan Collagen Booster and Elixir Facial Masks.  This Glow Beauty Duo is packed with plant~based ingredients meant to provide hydration and boost internal collagen 🌿 Keep reading to check out my first experience and learn a little more about Fusion Naturals.

Decocrated Summer 2019 Curated Home Decor Unboxing

Tuesday, July 23, 2019

My husband just can't sit still...there are multiple projects going on at our house on a regular basis.  Most recently, we have a boat parking roof, our floors, and all the window treatments.  Not too long ago, I also re~did my whole vanity space with a new desk space and vanity seat, all DIY'd.  Along with that, we really wanted to focus on a beachy vibe and we picked out new decor to get our new look going 🌊

The Decocrated Summer 2019 Curated Home box has really helped bring our look together with key pieces that are functional and fun throughout the house 🏑 I think that there is also a ton of opportunity to #decohack a lot of the items in each box to really take that home decor personalization to the next level!  Keep reading to learn about everything that came in the newest Summer box and how to save $10 off your own seasonal subscription to Decocrated πŸ’Ÿ

Vegan Cuts May 2019 Snack Box Unboxing

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

One of the hardest things about becoming a vegan wasn't the will power or missing anything in particular...It was finding food products to replace non-vegan items in my diet, as well as, learning about different brands available and where.

Slowly but surely, I have developed my own favorites when it comes to staples I keep in the fridge or pantry.  Sometimes I do see something on the store shelf and wonder is it good?  Am I going to shell out $6 for a pack of cookies and they aren't going to be very good?  So usually, I keep walking on items like this.  I wish I could try items like this before investing in a full size at the store and hoping for the best.  Enter Vegan Cuts!  Keep reading to check out my experience with the monthly Vegan Cuts Snack Box 🎁πŸͺ

I have been totally and completely loving this summer! 🌞 We are having great family days out on the boat and the sandbar and I must say that I am rocking a pretty sweet sun-kissed glow! I do find myself reaching for certain types of products more than others and it's definitely way more low maintenance since we are predominantly outdoors.

So I found myself falling down the proverbial online shopping destination that is Amazon. I say destination, because it's really just that...almost like the 5-star resort of online shopping. I am a Prime Member so the allure of free super fast shipping, free returns, and endless options...enough said! Plus, they carry pretty much any brand you are looking for, even luxe, vegan, and cruelty free. f you know me, you know I love mermaids 🐚 Usually my search criteria looks a little something like this 🠞 mermaid beauty, mermaid skincare, mermaid phone get the picture! LOL! Keep reading for some of my personal picks for the perfect mermaid summer season 🐠
