  • There was a time in my life when I was seriously grossed out by menstrual cups...now I would write it a love letter if I could. Today on the blog I'm breaking down the menstrual cup, how it works, why switch and my recommendation for brands. If you too are grossed out by them and need a little convincing, I GOTCHU.

  • Welcome back to the #cleanbeauty5x5! This week we’re exploring brows and the best natural brow products on the market. We’re going beyond ecobrow and checking out some clean brow gels and wands as well as pencils and pomades. Stick around to find your new clean beauty brow favorites.

1. Eco Brow Defining Wax: http://bit.ly/306GCVY
2. Ere Perez Clear Brow Gel: http://bit.ly/2Z5gcGH
3. Juice Beauty Brow Gel:  http://bit.ly/2N1Vh13
4. Ilia Brow Gel: http://bit.ly/2Z79IXV
5. Eco Brow Pencil: http://bit.ly/2N8tyvA

P.S. I get most of my clean beauty products from @credobeauty!

OVERALL THOUGHTS:  They’re all great with the exception of the Ilia Brow Gel. All for different reasons. If I had to pick I would highly recommend the Ecobrow Pencil but also the Ere Perez Clear Brow Gel for setting or for a more natural look on its own. For ease of use you can’t go wrong with Juice beauty either!

  • There was a time in my life when I couldn't drink alcohol without purging. My purge was exercise.⁠
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
I'd workout excessively before I knew I would be drinking and wake up the next morning and do it again to make sure I was burning off those calories. The cycle would repeat and eventually it started happening with more than just alcohol. I've now come to learn that I was engaging in a binging-purge cycle that would be defined as binge eating disorder.⁠
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
Today on the podcast I'm sharing more about my experience and having a candid conversation with my friend, Lex Daddio from @restoring_radiance all about her experience with binge eating disorder and her path to recovery. Link in bio✌️⁠

  • {NATURAL FOUNDATION...WHERE TO START}⁠
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
Whenever people ask where to start with switching their makeup I always tell them to start with foundation. Rule of thumb: swap the products that covers the most surface area. Rule of thumb #2: swap only once you've run out of the old conventional product.⁠
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
Seriously though, I get that switching to natural makeup can be hard. We all have our conventional faves, not to mention how expensive clean beauty can be. So in addition to sharing my #CleanBeauty5x5, I'm also making it easier for you to access this information by sharing blog posts for each product. Today on the blog I'm talking about natural foundation, where to start, light, medium and full coverage options as well as products I won't be repurchasing. Hope this helps you on your clean beauty journey! Link in bio✌️⁠

  • "It's okay to take a break."⁠
"It's okay to put yourself first."⁠
"It's okay to put your body first."⁠
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
Thank you to my beautifully human friend @ashleyneese for the reminder that it's okay to slow down and give yourself the extra time and space to care for your life's most important resource: YOU.⁠
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
That's what these past 6 weeks of the podcast hiatus have been for me. A slowing down. A focus on my foundation so I can grow into the future in a way that's sustainable and expansive.⁠
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
Now we're BACK and season 5 is officially here. Today on the show we're chatting about somatic breathwork for healing, the importance of having a gratitude practice and way we all need to SLOW DOWN. Link in bio for the full episode✌️⁠

  • {CLEAN BEAUTY ESSENTIALS} ⁠
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
I absolutely love when you guys request posts! Not only does it help make my job easier, but it also gives me a much better sense of where you're at when it comes to things like clean beauty. Because let's be real, I'm obsessed with this stuff and can *at times* get a little ahead of myself. A highly requested post was for me to take things back a notch and focus on clean beauty essentials. Things like body wash, shampoo, hand soap, deodorant...you know, the things you use on the daily! ⁠
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
So I put together a list of my clean beauty daily essentials and basics for those of you who are just getting started. Also let's be real...I'm not perfect and not all my products are 1000000% clean or plant-based, and that's okay! Hopefully this can be a helpful resource for you. Link in bio✌️⁠

  • {1 WEEK COUNTDOWN UNTIL...}⁠
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
THE PODCAST RETURNS! Summer has felt a lot like this. Calm, relaxed, full of puppy fun, bare feet, escaping the fog for some sunshine and travel.⁠
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
A lot of this has to do with giving myself permission to slow down. To take breaks. To not indulge the hustle and bustle of life and prove my self-worth through my work. Don't get me wrong, I still love to create but anyone who has a lot of creative energy knows how important it is to take breaks and allow yourself to regroup. Do I still harbor fear around this? Absolutely. It isn't easy for me to slow down and be quiet with myself. But I do it anyway for two important reasons:⁠
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
1. I've learned the hard way what burnout looks like and feels like. I have to create boundaries for myself otherwise I will keep pushing forward moving exclusively on adrenaline. And then I get sick...always.⁠
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
2. Sometimes you have to be the example that you need. Do I wish I had more models of content creators (bloggers, podcasters, vloggers) who also took breaks and didn't feel the pressure to always be on? Yes. But there aren't a lot of them out there so hopefully I can be that person for you.⁠
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
The last 6 weeks have been a nice slow season and I'm so grateful I've been able to cultivate the space for it. But I'm ready to come back and share more of these inspiring and expanding conversations with you. STAY TUNED!⁠
