This look was inspired by my daily struggle to work on my yoga practice. At best, I’m a once a week practitioner, but I’m working hard on changing that on the daily basis. Namasté!

Voted one of Allure’s Readers’ Choice winners in 2016, the Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrubs are definitely worth trying out; especially if you are looking to get your skin summer ready.
The shea sugar scrubs come in several different scent combinations, including: Coconut Lime, Marula & Jasmine, Moroccan Rose, Brazilian Nut, Tropical Mango, Pomegranate Acai, Hawaiian Kukui, Passion Fruit & Guava, Lychee & Plum, and Original Shea.
I have tried the three pictured above, and would absolutely repurchase them. It is a very gentle scrub that exfoliated very well and leaves your skin feeling very soft and moisturized.
The application is simple and self-explanatory. You just scoop out the desired amount of product into your hand and apply in a circular motion to the area of the body you want to exfoliate. The sugar disintegrates as you scrub, and moisturizes your skin. Once you’ve scrubbed enough, rinse with water. I usually use this product while I am in the shower, after I have washed with soap.
So where can you pick up these scrubs to try out for yourself, you ask. Ulta has a large selection (actually I think they carry every single version), and they often have a two for one, or buy one get the second 1/2 off deal. But for the regular price of $7.99 (18 oz.) you are still getting a great product for an inexpensive price tag. I have also seen them for sale on Amazon and at some Bed, Bath and Beyond stores.
Thanks for reading! ☺️
Magic in a bottle…. no, seriously! Once you’ve tried this product, and have incorporated it into your beauty routine, you will find it hard to live without.
First let’s start with the smell. The website describes it as an uplifting citrus aroma – which it is. However it is not overpowering or bold, just a nice sweet smell, that I believe has a slight honeysuckle aroma as well.
Next, the texture… it is super light and silky. In short, it feels great on your skin. It is super versatile as well. I have used it as a moisturizer for my face and lips, and to blend my foundation with my kabuki brush. Both applications are spectacular. Their website (Farsali.com) lists other great uses as well.
This product is for anyone and everyone as it is completely natural. The ingredients include: rosehip seed oil, pumpkin seed oil, 24k gold, vitamin E, lemongrass oil, and orange peel oil.
It comes in two sizes 15ml ($35.00) and 30ml ($54.00). I’d recommend just getting the larger size right off the bat, because you are going to love it.
Be forewarned – this product does sell out from time to time, so plan accordingly 🙂

Most days you’ll find my makeup fully done, but there are always those days (call it lazy, call it my alarm could not wake me up, etc.), whatever the case my be; there are days when mascara and lip balm is about all I walk out the door with. On those days Burt’s Bees Lip Balm is the sweet little treasure of my existence.
My experience using Burt’s Bees products have nothing short of glorious and I would highly recommend them to anyone, and have! Which is how this post idea even came about.
Back track to a few days ago when I was having a conversation with one of my friends after seeing her pull out a tube of Chapstick.
When I asked her why she was using Chapstick, her reply was because her lips were dry. I then asked her if she had ever read the ingredients on her Chapstick tube. It was here I found out that she hadn’t read the label, and did not know that Chapstick contains alcohol (which drys out your skin thereby requiring her to use even more Chapstick).
I thought this was common knowledge, she then said she had no idea and that I should write a blog entry on the topic.
I quickly ran over to Target and picked her up a Burt’s Bees Lip Balm to replace her Chapstick because friends don’t let friends have dry, cracked lips! 🙂
