Noble Originals ♡

IMG_4078.JPG

As I was scheming through the internet I was lucky enough to find this skin care product line called Noble Originals. The name Noble Originals is actually named after a beautiful pony named Noble!!! Isn’t that adorable?! What sets Noble Originals apart from any skin care line is that all of their products are vegan! YES, vegan. They avoid using preservatives, artificial fillers, or synthetic fragrances when they make their products.

As you can see in the picture above I received three of their products. The lemongrass body butter, Vanilla Lip Balm Chapstick, and the Oatmeal bath bar.

Right as a opened the box I couldn’t help but be so excited!!

The same night I tried the lemongrass body butter after taking a shower. I would recommend to put around a quarter size on your palm and just lather the body butter all over your (dry) skin. After a few minutes I could already feel my skin feeling so soft! The scent was also amazing because I love the smell of lemongrass. The lemongrass body butter contains shea butter from a woman’s co-operative in Africa. How cool is that!!

Later I tried the  Vanilla Lip balm and thought, wow this is going to be my favorite product from Noble Originals. I have tried many chapsticks but for some reason it felt as though this chapstick lasted longer and when I licked my lips to taste it (yes i tasted it haha) I literally did not taste any type of artificial flavor or chemicals! haha I was really checking to see if they were staying to their mission.

Yes, they really are  staying true to their mission. 

Last I tried the Oatmeal bath bar and that is when I knew I would want to purchase this product over and over and over again. The oatmeal bath bar was by far my favorite!!! I felt an instant change to my skin after I used this product. You could really notice that their were essential oils in this bar. This bath bar also contains shea butter from a woman’s co-operative in Africa. So cool!!

I love the mission of Noble Originals and I hope to continue using their products. Their products are well made and really affordable for its value. If you are interested in more of their products you can check out their website here-

My Day at Living Proof ♡

IMG_2179

I had the honor of being chosen as the winner of an instagram contest with Living Proof.

I won a hair consultation!! ahhh I never thought I would ever be chosen! ah ah

IMG_2177

The prize was a free $300 hair consultation and I received a handful of amazing living proof products that my hair really needed! So I am sooooooo thankful for that.

I received a hair consultation by Maria who is a stylist and also works at the living proof lab and tests the products at living proof!! So cool right?! She was so sweet! I truly feel like I made a friend. Everyone at the Living Proof office is so friendly and nice.

After my hair consultation Maria did my hair!! Look how adorable she made it look!

I really wish I could have her around all the time so my hair would look this pretty always! But she taught me some pretty cool tips and tricks I will definitely be using in my everyday life.

These are all the products I got to take home! GUYS if your hair is dry like mine I really recommend the restore line from Living Proof! It will do wonders to your hair.

Thank you so much to Living Proof and to the Living Proof team.

I had such a great time and I have loved visiting the office every time.

Can’t wait to go back again soon!

With so much love,

Living Proof Boston Blogger Event Party ♡

IMG_1892

I had the privilege to go to my very first blogger event!! It was for a hair product company called Living Proof. I’ve always heard great things about this company but never really had the opportunity to try the product myself. Fun Fact: Jennifer Aniston is the spokesperson and co owner of the company (so cool right?!)

IMG_1857

Living Proof really stands out from other companies because it was created by a group of scientists that really want to help share and “challenge conventional wisdom to solve the toughest beauty problems.” They do that by using science to help solve the toughest beauty problems.

The purpose of this event was to introduce the new dry shampoo that they just launched recently.

IMG_1862

I got to try the product myself and can honestly say that it is the best dry shampoo i’ve ever used. I am a huge dry shampoo fan and have used tons of different dry shampoos. Many of them leave a white residue, a weird consistency in your hair,  but this living proof product not only leaves your hair smelling fresh, but soft, and clean looking! (without the white residue) Isn’t that amazing?!

You can purchase the dry shampoo on their website here- http://www.livingproof.com/buy/perfecthairday-dry-shampoo

Here are some pictures from the event- I had such a great time!!

FullSizeRender-1

I have found my favorite makeup purchase of the year!!! (well so far… the year has just begun but I’m already experimenting and discovering/learning so many new things lol)

P.S. I’d like to apologize in advance for the many duck face selfies (some pictures aren’t meant to be taken seriously 😉 ) and would like to inform you  that I am no makeup artist … I still have so much to learn but I am teaching myself and this is how I like to do my makeup 🙂
