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.

IMG_2192

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.

IMG_2191

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.

IMG_2198

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.

IMG_1866

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!!

Arezzo, Italia ♡

IMG_0566

I got to visit Arezzo, Italia.

A city where my brother had lived for a year while playing soccer.

IMG_0525

A film called “Life is Beautiful” was always filmed here.

Life is Beautiful is a movie I definitely recommend to watch! (It’s on netflix)

IMG_0546

This is the center of Arezzo, I wish I was able to take a better picture.

This city was breathtaking.

IMG_0529

This is the poster of the movie “Life is Beautiful”  it was so exciting for me to walk around Arezzo because they placed posters  and showed what part of the film was filmed in certain locations.

Life is Beautiful is a classic Italian film. Please go watch it!!

IMG_0539

We had gelato!

Guys I have had  gelato everyday since i’ve been in Italy and I haven’t regretted a single moment.

IMG_0562

The weather was a bit cloudy but it was perfect because it wasn’t too hot!

IMG_0568

We had dinner at a cute little restaurant

IMG_0571

 I had ravioli with shredded figs on top.

Arezzo is a beautiful city!

I recommend watching Life is Beautiful and then planning a trip to Arezzo.

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay (face mask) ♡

11127750_953458161377049_30642295_n 11186417_953458164710382_1499000609_n 11178618_953458148043717_714170190_n 11180015_953458138043718_1494252865_n

Healing clay has been used in many different cultures for decades! Healing clay is a type of clay called bentonite clay which is know to absorb and remove toxins. When the clay comes in contact with a chemical or any type of toxin it automatically removes it away.

10728670_953458188043713_1463350420_n

You can use the clay on your skin, as a face mask, a detox bath, teeth whitening, baby powder and many more things!

11173545_953458184710380_259028331_n

My roommate actually introduced this product to me as a face mask. What you do is get a spoon of of the Aztec Secret Indian healing clay and pour apple cider vinegar all over it and mix it all up until the clay thickens (it should turn into a paste). For more of a thick texture use less vinegar. Then apply it on a clean fresh face. Leave it on your face for 20 minutes and then rinse it off.

Just a warning when the mask dries up  on your face you won’t be able to move your face and things might get a little funny but don’t laugh it will be painful!!! LOL

My roommate and I always do this mask together and we always end up laughing!

People swear by this product! I have heard so many benefits from this healing clay. Personally being someone who suffers from acne this product has really helped me.

I recommend it…. Let me know if it benefits you in any way!

with so much love,

The weather was beautiful yesterday. I had the great privilege of watching the sunset on a friends rooftop. His rooftop overlooks the Charles River!

Isn’t the view beautiful?!?

P.s. say hello to my friend Sammy ❤

Although the weather was warm and beautiful yesterday it got a bit windy. So I decided to use my scarf to keep me warm.. and it resulted in a candid photo of me being taken.

I am becoming very grateful for this warm weather, I really hope the nasty cold weather is over!! Spring and summer weather please come sooner and stay for good.

How are you guys spending your time with this beautiful weather?

I hope the weather is nice and warm wherever you are 🙂

My Favorite Lush Mask ♡

IMG_2129

I have a slight obsession with a cosmetic store called Lush Cosmetics, it is a store that consists of fresh handmade cosmetics.  Lush only uses fresh ingredients on their products, they fight against animal testing, recycle their packaging, Lush carries a hand and body cream product called Charity Pot and 100% of the purchase price goes towards support for animal rights and  environmental causes, locally and around the world.

Other than the great things Lush is a part of their products are amazing and very affordable.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I have tried almost every face mask from lush and so far my favorite is the Catastrophe Cosmetic

I like to call it “The Blueberry Mask” haha

Ingredients: Blueberries, Chamomile Blue Oil, Almond Oil, Rose Absolute, Sweet Wild Orange Oil, Irish Moss Gel, Calamine Powder, Limonene, Talc, and two safe synthetics – Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone and Fragrance

Go get one from a local store near you and let me know what you think about it 🙂

with so much love,
