100% Pregnancy-Safe Skincare

Last month, True Botanicals launched a much-needed new line, BASICS.  I wrote all about it here, but something I did not discuss much is that it is 100% safe for pregnancy.  Personally, after a lot of research, I felt very comfortable using True Botanicals CLEAR line on my acne-prone throughout my second pregnancy, but some […]

The Nontoxic Primer You’ve Been Waiting For

It’s Friday, so I’m going to get straight to the point.  Hynt Beauty Sun Prep SPF 30 has done what I thought was impossible.  They’ve created a transparent moisturizer, primer (that is silicone-free, I might add) and broad spectrum SPF, all-in-one. It is light, silky, and will absolutely not break you out.  SCORE.  The main ingredient […]

What I Reorder from Ayla Beauty

I am often asked what I really use.  Technically, I really use everything I blog about; I use each product until I have a handle on its full benefits.  If it’s skincare, I test a product for about a month before writing about it, but if it’s a lipgloss, I might just test it for […]

New. Color. @LeVertBeauty

When I’m busy (which is basically all the time these days), I tend to fall into a makeup rut.  On one hand, I pride myself on being able to get ready in about half the time it took me pre-kids, but on the other, I feel like a bore.  Ana at LeVert Beauty keeps me […]

Ilia Beauty: Warm Weather Essentials

Is it me, or has this week been… long?  This heat!  But, I won’t complain.  Summer is my favorite time of year; I love the beach, I love summer fashion and I love warm weather products. I am getting ready to head to Kiawah Island for the holiday weekend, and I’ve been trying to round […]

Mama Mondays: (Fast) Food

As a busy mother, I’ve found that If I don’t plan my meals ahead of time, I end up starving, only to binge eat half a container of hummus and 20 rice crackers.  That is no way to live.  Nursing only makes things worse; I’m always ravenous, and I have to keep my calorie count […]

Cool Off: The Best Nontoxic Toners

It’s hot, humid and sticky here in Charleston, and I’ve been reaching for my mists, toners, hydrosols, sprays, anything to keep me feeling refreshed.  Back in the day, Clinique and the like drilled into our heads, “Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize”.  It was the thing to do.  Little did we know that most toners were basically just […]

Mama Mondays: Fashion Mamas & Life Lately

Happy Monday!  This summer is going by WAY too fast for me – anyone else?  I recently joined an amazing network of women, Fashion Mamas, to network with movers and shakers (who are also mothers) in related fields.  My friend, Jackie Thomson, of Leapfrog PR suggested I do it, and I think it’s because she […]
