Keeping my lips soft and smooth can be a real battle. I feel like it is for a lot of people. I find scrubs and balms help, but somehow never fully corrects the problem. That is until I found the Kari Gran Lip Whip! This seems to be a relatively new addition to Sephora and I am so glad because I am not sure I would have found it otherwise. With regular use, the Lip Whip, along with the Paula’s Choice Scrub, has pretty much completely healed my lips! I’ve talked about a fair number of lip balms and treatments on the blog before, but I think I have finally found the one!!!

Recently NARS collaborated with Christopher Kane, a young British fashion designer, for the limited edition Neoneutrals Collection. I didn’t pay much attention to the collection until I saw Tati’s (aka GlamLifeGuru), review on YouTube and immediately decided I needed to try at least the lipgloss. Unable to settle on one shade, I actually bought three of the four offerings. The pale nudish shade called Nucleus just didn’t appeal to me on any level, so I tested out Glow Pink, Nebulous and Mezmer. So, so glad I did! J

I’m not one for saving my trash. I have enough junk lying around that I don’t need a pile of literal garbage cluttering up my life. That would be one reason why I don’t do “empties” posts. It also takes me what seems like a lifetime to finish things, or I run out of every product I use at once! So instead of doing a collective “empties” post, I think what I will do is review a product after it’s finished to let you know what I thought of it months later…or even a year later. Since I literally just finished a bottle of the Sibu Beauty Seabuckthorn Balancing Facial Cleanser and figured it’s about time to review it!

As the weather improves and the sun shines while the temperatures soar, most of us start showing a bit more skin. That means its time to get exfoliating! To some this is a tedious chore, but I kind of enjoy it. There’s something satisfying about scraping away all that old skin and feeling baby soft when you step out of the shower. Fortunately, there’s a new tool from EcoTools that is an excellent addition to anyone’s exfoliating routine! It is their new Dry Body Brush.

Today I thought I’d do something a bit different and discuss being a vegetarian. I don’t tend to discuss food on the blog at all, but it is something that is near and dear to my heart…well, not so much food as not eating meat. If you do choose to eat meat, I’m not at all offended and would never try to convert anyone to vegetarianism. That being said, I thought I would just discuss some of my reasons, tips and tricks, and maybe a few favorites. And please bear in mind that I am not a dietician, physician, or any other kind of trained professional; I have just been a vegetarian for years and thought I’d share some of what I’ve found during that time.

Another month has come and gone, which means we’re one step closer to Summer!!! There’s something about the rapidly approaching Summer that is always exciting to me. But, first we need to fully experience Spring. J This month has brought some absolutely spectacular favorites…and potential holy grail status items! With something like that to look forward to, let’s not f-around with this chit chat and get on with the wonder products. J
