I love the February 2018 Mapleblume box SO. MUCH. I wish I had clapping hand emojis on here just to show you how strongly I feel, haha. Not only did it include a brand I’ve been absolutely dying to try for months now, but it also included a tried and true favorite product of mine in a shade I didn’t already own. YAAAS! In case you’re wondering, Mapleblume is a luxury beauty box that serves as the perfect introduction to natural/organic/clean luxury skincare and makeup products.

I very briefly touched on our engagement in my Iceland Travel Diary post a few months back, but never really explained how it happened. We just got our lakeside engagement photos back this morning (a HUGE thanks to Lula of Connect Photography– she is the absolute nicest ever and clearly takes stunning photos!) and I figured it was the perfect time to share how the proposal happened!

We have been together for nearly eight years, so I was completely surprised when Cole proposed because I was just so accustomed to the way things were (though it was no secret that I definitely wanted to get married at some point, haha).

Time for another new (to me) brand discovery from Pearlesque Box! I’ve been on the vitamin C train recently with all the sun exposure I’ve had this past year, so I was beyond happy to see that the products included this month were both vitamin C based, from the brand Luxe Botanics.

First things first: what is the Pearlesque Box? It’s a green beauty subscription box that sends 2-3 full and/or travel-sized clean skincare products from one specific brand each month.

It’s so crazy to be dating something 2018, but here we are. Happy new year! I hope everyone’s holiday season was great and not too hectic or stressful and that the new year is off to a good start. I have a goals post for 2018 coming up very soon, but in the meantime, I wanted to sneak in my Pearlesque Box review really quick before they sell out!

The Pearlesque Box is a monthly subscription box that sends a few (both full and travel-sized) non-toxic luxury skincare products from a specific brand each month.

2017 flew by, didn’t it? Looking back on it, it was a great year for me overall, even if I didn’t necessarily accomplish everything I had hoped to. With that being said, I am most definitely looking forward to what 2018 holds!

2017 recap
  • spent the first couple months of the year completely decluttering mine and Cole’s life (seriously, if it wasn’t tied down in our house, I sold it, haha) before we put everything into storage and moved out of the place we’d been in for a couple of years.

With the arrival of December, the holiday season is officially here! When I was younger, this time of year used to be all about the presents and yummy Christmas dinner. However, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to appreciate the holidays for what they truly are: a time to relax with the people you love (with a drink in hand and a tummy full of turkey, of course).

What better drink to kick back with than this gorgeous (and equally delicious) Elyx Spritz Cocktail?

I’ll admit, I have yet to find a mascara in the green beauty world that really gives me the long, fluttery lashes that I so desire. I haven’t tried a ton of them though, as mascara takes a decent amount of time to get through and I don’t want to waste the ones I’ve purchased even if I don’t love them, so I’m sure what I’m looking for in a clean mascara is out there somewhere!

It’s official… December’s box is my most favorite Pearlesque Box yet (and that’s saying a lot, because I’ve found some great products through this box). Before I dive in, here’s what the Pearlesque Box is all about: it’s a monthly subscription box that sends a few (both full and travel-sized) non-toxic luxury skincare products from a specific brand each month.

For the featured brand this month, we have… SkinOwl! If you are at all active in the green beauty Instagram world, it’s highly likely you’ll have seen this brand around.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Panasonic. The opinions and text are all mine.

I’m not usually one to get excited about beauty tool releases, but a new product from Panasonic recently caught my eye and I couldn’t resist trying it out!
