My routine beauty has taken a big revamp since reading Adina Grigore’s new book, Skin Cleanse. I’ve always considered myself a really healthy person – I exercise, eat mostly Paleo organic meals, and use essential oils just to name a few. But, what I didn’t realize was the amount of chemicals I’ve been putting in my body through my skin care and make-up. As healthy as I like to think I am, I’ve always had skin problems and since reworking my skincare routine and introducing natural products, I’ve seen a drastic difference. The first place I started was my face wash, I simply replaced it with a little coconut oil, olive oil and lavender essential oil and my skin loved it! Needless to say, I’m a fan of natural beauty products and here are just a few of my favorite lines I’ve found that say goodbye to the harsh chemicals and saturate their products with healthy, simple ingredients that work wonders. A one tip: your favorite stores like Urban and Anthro carry a lot of these lines!

1. S.W Basics Exfoliant 2. Klorane Dry Shampoo 3. Belmondo Eye Cream 4. Herbivore Botanicals Pink Clay Mask 5. Little Barn Apothecary Soaking Salts 6. Rodale’s Baked Blush Palette 7. Butter Elixir 8. Tata Harper Lip and Cheek Tint 9. Mayron’s Goods Sun Stuff

Nothing says summer time more than this shade of orange! Fun and tasteful, the perfect color for beach vacationing…(Can you tell what I’m thinking about?)

Detailed Metallic

Metallics in during the fall and winter months, and they’re sticking around in unique ways this summer. Love these delicate mani’s. They add the perfect touch of shimmer, for that beach-y sun kissed feel.


If you were going to choose one nail color for the season, nude should be it. So easy to wear and effortlessly chic!


From matte to creamy pastels, hues of whites are definitely on trend for the summer. White is the perfect color for a fashion-forward and elevated look.  My go-to color for summer nights out!
