IT Cosmetics Anti-Aging Armour Beauty Fluid + SPF

IT Cosmetics Anti-Aging Armour Beauty Fluid + SPF

Makeup, Skin Care
IT Cosmetics Anti-Aging Armour Beauty Fluid + SPF Since moving to Bali, I've turned into quite the beach bum. Not your typical beach bum though. I'm always hiding in the shade, covered in sunscreen, probably reading a book. Except for when I'm swimming in the water trying to cool off (or relieve my bladder). Either way I'm always trying to protect my face from the sun- that's why I use IT Cosmetics Anti-Aging Armour. When I don't properly protect my face, my face let's me know. My melasma starts popping up under my eyes and on my upper lip. With this stuff, nothing. And that's how I know it's working and working well. This stuff is fast, multitasking skincare and makeup. It's every girl's lazy morning dream, one step for…

Beauty Trends Not Worth The Hype 2017

Makeup
Beauty Trends Not Worth The Hype 2017 To each their own but these are some beauty trends that are so not worth the hype for 2017. Lash Extensions I've been up close and personal with lash extensions for many years now. Starting in beauty school where I watched all my classmates practice on each other. "It's a great money maker Monet, you should take a class..."  I watched one-by-one as each girl got them. They loved them, were annoyed by how they looked a week later, got them off, lost half their eye lashes then proceeded to do it again to cover up their bald lash line. Not for me. Can we please be done with them already?! Stencil Brows You know the ones... boxy, harsh and stencil-ish. There's a…

Bali Try-On Fashion Haul

Lifestyle
Beauty Trends Not Worth The Hype 2017 I've done a little bit of shopping in Bali and I wanted to show you the fruits of my labor! Here's my Bali fashion haul! In the video below I do some trying on and talking through the purchases I've made thus far. Some good and some not-so-good. Before arriving in Bali I didn't know what kind of clothes I would be able to find or if it would even be my style. Needless to say, I found some stuff I absolutely love. Though there's been a learning curve, I think I've really started to hit my Bali shopping stride. A few photos of me wearing some of my finds- Hat- BillabongFrom: Blood + Bone Padang-Padang, BaliPrice- $22Shirt- Blood + Bone Padang-Padang, BaliPrice- $15Romper-…

Bali Interior Designs I’m inspired by

Lifestyle
Bali interiors have proven to be one of the most inspiring parts of the island thus far. I've captured a few interiors that got my creative juices flowing. The effortlessness, bright, easy and natural textures have me dreaming of designing my own place here... ahh dreams. The first place that really got me going is Bukit Cafe. The grass lighting fixtures, the weathered white beams I love it all. Simplistic, comfortable living.   PinkCoco Hotel made my eyes go wide when I first saw it. SO much so that when I got home I sketched out my dream kitchen using white and wood with pops of pinks and green. Wonder where I got that idea?! Loving the concrete floors, arches and lighting fixtures. Cozy front porch. Anyone want to curl…

Dosha Body Typing

Lifestyle
Dosha Body Typing If you're anything like me you love to learn more about yourself. It sounds a bit narcissistic but you know what I mean! I love personality tests and Strengths Finder tests give me all the tests (but not those silly FB quizzes). The Dosha Body Typing Test give us a little more insight into our attributes that we may not think about all the time. It is also incredibly helpful in figuring out where we thrive and where we could better ourselves. I'm huge on always having something specific that I'm actively working on about myself. For instance, right now I'm working on controlling my emotions and reacting slowly out of love and not fear. It's flippin' hard. I'm an emotional being, thanks mom. Staying on topic with personality tests, I recently…

Lifestyle, Makeup, Skin Care
IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Illumination Cream with SPF 50+ $38 This is the easiest one step foundation ever! In one step you get your SPF, awesome anti-aging ingredients and a medium coverage foundation. You'll also get a nice dewy finish which I love but if you prefer a more satin or matte look check out the original IT Cosmetics CC cream. I've been going super low maintenance with this one and just applying it with my fingers. Fractionated Coconut Oil $13 This has been a life-changing favorite! And the perfect multi-use product to travel with. I've been using it as makeup remover, facial cleanser, shaving cream, hair/scalp mask and body lotion. The fact that it's fractionated means that it doesn't ever solidify which means that you can…
