It is the end of April and I have discovered many treasures while unpacking from the move!

First off I found a giant block of She butter which has been a god send to find at this time with my stretch marks starting to worsen from pregnancy. It has really helped, I was using living libations seabuckthorn best skin ever but sadly its clearly not working as I am getting stretch marks even faster than last pregnancy. Using plain shea butter has really helped with my itchy skin and put the growth of the stretch marks on pause… at least for now!

Living Libations Lavish abundance perfume, review

Dont get me wrong I still love my living libations though the oil didnt work for me!  I have been indulging in my lavish abundance perfume loads this spring. Its pure joy in a bottle. Notes of lavender, lime, Jasmine, and Vanilla. Simply divine!

Twp eye makeup products that have really made beauty a breeze for this part time blogger and full time momma is the Alterra eye cream stick with the brown shade and nude shade and the Jane Iredale highlighting pencil.

Above are swatches of the Alterra cream stick. I love how easy and fast it is to apply this to my eyes. Perfect to achieve a subtle neutral look! I like to use the nude on my lid and lightly smear the chocolate brown in my crease. It achieves a natural look that takes literally seconds!

Jane Iredale eye highlight pencil, organic makeup, swatch

Now this Jane iradale highlight stick is an investment but well worth it! Seriously nothing brightens my eyes like this product. I love how soft the shades are. My personal favourite is the pink shade in my inner tear duct.

Burts Bees tinted Lip Balm petunia swatch, review

Now for Lip products a new burts bees tined lip balm is out for spring in the color Petunia. You all know how much I love these I have another detailed blog post on these with swatches which I will link here:https://daniellebeautybliss.wordpress.com/2013/08/29/burts-bees-tinted-lip-balm-review-swatch-pictures-included/

This color is a a warm an subtle peachy pink that I feel is a nice middle ground from the pink blossom and blush orchid by burts bees. You wont catch me without one of these lip balms in my purse and this one has been in mine the whole month!

Zuii Organic lipgloss ruby rose, swatch, naural lip gloss

Last but not least is this spring to summer transition lip gloss by Zuii oraganics in the color Ruby Rose. This lip gloss looks red in the tube but once applied to the lips it looks like a hot pink super summery!

The gloss goes on like a lip gloss and dries like a stain and lasts for hours before having to re apply!

Really hope you all check out my video where I talk more about the products!

Until next time wishing you all beauty and bliss!

After being asked many times if I have ever tried the “No Poo Method” I decided I may as well give this a shot and see what the hype is over this natural alternative to cleaning hair. I also decided to do it because of the benefits I had researched such as; eliminating chemicals from my routine ,and its much cheaper. Apple cider vinegar has a wonderful effect on restoring the ph balance of your hair and stripping it clean of toxins also intrigued me so I set out to a 7 day experiment!

Day 1:Apple cider vinegar no poo method, no poo method, hair experiment, apple cider vinegar for hair, hair detox, hair treatment

So typically I wash my hair every other day to every 2 days because I have an oily scalp. Today is day 1 and I washed my hair using my vinegar water mixture. 75% water to 25% vinegar.

Results: I am quite pleased so far. My hair seems very similar to how it is when it is shampood but actually looks a little shiner! So far I am quite pleased with it and there is no icky vinegar smell to my hair at all like I feared there might be. 🙂

Day 2: I DO SMELL LIKE VINEGAR!

By Day 3 I stopped blogging about this experiment due to my lack of enthusiasm for it due to the horrible smell. As you can see my hair looks pretty good and actually LIGHTER. My over all thoughts are on video here:

The Truth On Mascara

Did you know that most of the mascaras on the market contain ingredients that can actually do harm to your lashes?

After a while you may start to notice your lashes become brittle and dry and before you know it….they fall out! This is a good way for manufactures to get consumers to come back for more of their magic eyelash goop! 

 I will teach your how to get real results with YOUR lashes without having to pay for false promises that come in a plastic tube of black goop!

First And Foremost you need to have a healthy diet!

 Key Nutrients For Healthier & Longer Lashes! 

VITAMIN H: Vitamin H is actually a B vitamin and B vitamins are known for having good effects on the hair and lashes. B vitamins help the body metabolize fats and proteins and in result you get faster hair growth! You can buy Supplements at health food stores. Some ways to get this nutrient through your food is by eating things like eggs, beans, and nuts and seeds!

Antioxidants: Antioxidant rich foods like blueberries and believe it or not chocolate are fantastic at protecting your lashes and keeping them strong so eat foods rich in color!

Omega 3 Fatty acids: I cant stress how important it is to have healthy fats in your diet! Healthy fats come from things like fish, avocados, nuts and seeds. These fats are good to maintain your vibrant beauty and overall general health. Omega 3’s help your body absorb nutrients and vitamins to your blood stream.

Only when you are truly healthy from the inside it will exude on the outside.

 How To Condition Your Lashes As Part Of Your Daily Beauty Regime

Olive oil is my favorite natural treatment for lashes. Apply a drop to your finger and apply the oil to your lashes every night before bed.

~Another great oil is vitamin E oil

~A clever choice is Pomegranate oil as it is rich in antioxidants which will stimulate growth

Mascara Your Friend Or Your Enemy?

As I said at the start of this post most mascaras are causing harm to your lashes due to harmful preservatives and chemicals. Why would you want to settle for only temporary results anyways?

I highly suggest reducing the amount of mascara you apply and also reduce how often you apply it. Give your lashes a chance to recover once in a while at the very least.

The Bright Side 

There are healthy alternatives to mascaras one of my favorites is by 100% pure and I have the color blackberry. I have a full review on this mascara on my blog as well. Be sure to check that out!

 Mascaras rich in plant extracts, natural pigments, and  un-harmful  preservatives are a wiser choice. Natural Mascaras are often equally effective as the generic ones though they are harder to find.

I hope you found these tips helpful!

Much Love
