We were in Italy recently, and this is one of my favorite shots that I took on the trip. It’s from Francavilla al Mare on the Adriatic coastline and it truly embodies the relaxed nature of our time there. We had such an amazing trip, and if you follow me on instagram, you have probably seen the places we visited in this region as well as Siena and Rome. Incredibly beautiful and such delicious food of course!
If you’ve seen any of my past Boxwalla subscription box reviews (see below), you know I have been consistently impressed with the quality of their beauty offerings and June’s Beauty Box is no exception. If you received one, you discovered some well loved brands in the green beauty community, and if you didn’t, hopefully the above picture will convince you that this is one subscription service not to be missed!
There were so many empties to go through this month that I needed to make two videos! Part I is dedicated to natural skincare and Part II is all about natural hair and body care. I hope you enjoy and thanks for watching. Please subscribe to my YouTube Channel if you are so inclined 🙂
These feel like tumultuous and uncertain times, so even though the weather is getting warmer for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, it still feels good to wear a perfume that wraps us up like a comforting blanket. One perfume that provides much needed succor while feeling heartsick, is Flora, a warm and gently spicy fragrance that envelopes you in its pillowy petals.
After reading The Hermes Hippie’s truly epic review of Living Libations’ tantalizing offerings, there was no way I was going to resist making a haul of my own. I am still in the process of testing several of their products, but it has only taken me a few weeks to fall deeply in love with their utterly swoon-worthy perfume, Night Flight to Venus.
I get a little bit giddy when a package from Providence Perfume Co arrives at my door since it means Charna Ethier has created something new. She’s added gorgeous lotions, hand creams, and perfumed teas to her line, so I’m always wondering with delight, “What could it be?” The surprise this time was her new perfume packaging which is just stunning. She sent along a 5ml roller ball bottle which is both cute and elegant (pictured below) and I am particularly fond of the silver detailing.
There are so many goodies to discover in another fabulous Boxwalla Beauty Box. I have discovered a new favorite mask from Garden of Wisdom, and a few other treats (both beauty and edible) so please check out the video for the full review! I hope you enjoy. XO ~Trish
I’ve finished up a box load of green beauty products. Highlights include Kahina’s Beldi Soap and One Love Organics Oil Cleanser. Hit play for all the details including the hits and some misses. Thanks for watching! XOXO ~Trish
It is me, or is palo santo the new oud? I feel like I am seeing it everywhere, and I must say, I like it. And I especially like it in Age of Earth’s all natural perfume offering, Ritual. I discovered this local company at a pop-up hosted by Shop People here in Portland, and was able to test the full line of Age of Earth’s perfumes and incense. Roxanne, the creator of these beautifully scented products, was a pleasure to chat with, and informed me that while her perfumes are very high in natural essences, Ritual is the only one that is 100% all natural. I delved into all of her perfumes with an open mind, but ultimately it was Ritual that pulled me into its tranquil realm.
I’m so excited to have My Morning Routine featured over at No More Dirty Looks! Alexandra and Siobhan have been leaders in the green beauty movement for many years now, and I read their blog regularly for new products, green beauty tips, and thorough research. Pop on over there to check it out!
