Modern Office Decor

Modern Office Decor

So excited to share my modern decor office reveal!  If you’ve been following me on social media then you know that I’ve been a busy little bee over here redoing my office for a bit.  I knew when I moved into our house last year that I wanted to redo it. 

The room had carpet and I wanted hardwood floors.  It also had some old blinds, needed a paint job, new light fixture, etc.  As you can see I had big plans for this little room!  I couldn’t wait to get started.

Love how bright and airy my modern office turned out!

 

As you know with anything it takes longer than you think.  But I’m so happy it’s finally done!  I really wanted a space that felt open and airy- hello I live in Washington and the dark days are a real thing.  I also wanted it to feel a little boho, while at the same time feeling chic. I like clean lines and simplicity but also a little flair here and there.  

 

before and after office decor

This was right when we moved in last November. We hadn’t painted it yet or done the floors. There were no closet doors either!

 

I think I nailed it!  Every time I walk into my office I just breathe a little easier, and feel a calm and peace.  Spaces have a serious effect on your outlook.  I knew I wanted to feel inspired and motivated when working, and so I needed to create a space that would embody that. 

 

modern office reveal

This was after we painted the office last January, but hadn’t put in new blinds or done anything else.

 

I’m sharing everything.  From the eco/green flooring I used to the desk, blinds, bookcase, shelves, EVERYTHING.  I really wanted you to be able buy anything that I used.  

 

modern marble shelves

When I saw these modern marble shelves online I knew they would be perfect in my office!

 

Flooring-

This was the thing that took the longest to decide on.  I really wanted something that wasn’t going to off gas toxic chemicals and also looked good.  Plus, I didn’t want it to be hard to install.  

I wanted something my hubs could install and not have to hire someone.  Well, I found the perfect flooring!

It’s from Green Building Supply.  Green Building Supply is your one stop shop for all things natural and sustainable for homes.  I talked with several different eco experts there and landed on the EcoFusion Solid Drop and Lock Strand Bamboo Flooring.  Not only does the flooring have a zero VOC finish, meaning it will not off-gas toxic chemicals but it also doesn’t have any added urea formaldehyde in it’s adhesive.  

 

Bohemian office reveal

I had to have a fiddle leaf fig tree in my office and the mirror was such a perfect touch as well.

 

I looked into EcoFusion and was really impressed with it’s overall sustainability practices and natural standards. This is a quote about EcoFusion taken from Green Building Supply’s website.

Unlike most bamboo importers, EcoFusion is vertically integrated which means the company grows, harvests and fabricates all of its own bamboo. As a result, EcoFusion insures that its bamboo is plantation-grown to maturity of five-six years for maximum hardness, utilizing no pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers.

-Joel Hirshberg, Founder of Green Building Supply

 

I loved knowing that the company takes great lengths to ensure their products are safe.  In installation you don’t have to use any glue at all.  I loved knowing I could just use the drop and lock method and avoid glue all together.  My husband and a friend installed it in one afternoon and it only took them 4 hours!  I was so impressed with how easy it was to work with and use.  There was no smell either!

It looks so nice and bright and airy.  Just what I was going for.  The color I chose was Frost.  I wanted the floor to be light wood.  Especially since the room isn’t huge.  I wanted it to feel bright and open.  I had ordered a sample for $6.95 before choosing that color. It helped to see the color before ordering all the flooring.  Love that Green Building Supply offers samples!

 

Modern office reveal

Love how everything came together, even the small office supplies!

 

After it was finished I was so amazed with what a difference it made!  The total cost was around $1,100. That also included the Moisture Block that we put down on the floors before installing the bamboo flooring.  The Moisture Lock helps to block moisture and protect your floor. 

For a non-toxic flooring that is not only easy to install, doesn’t smell and looks beautiful- I can’t recommend it enough!  I really wanted something that I could share with my audience that wasn’t over priced or unreasonable, plus that was also easy to install.  This is it!

 

modern bookcase

This modern bookcase was perfect since it wasn’t too big and had doors.

 

Here is the rest of my office reveal!  

 

bohemian light

This bohemian light is everything and really makes the room pop!

 

 

I have linked each item for you to find easily.  

  1. Shelves- I wanted something that looked chic and classy and had a bit of gold in them.  I’m a gold girl all the way and love little pops of gold here and there.  These also are large enough to fit a decent amount of products on- haha, something this product junkie needs for sure!
  2. Desk- I wanted a desk that had a good amount of desk space.  The last desk I had was so tiny.  I also wanted it to be white or something light- as to keeping with the light and airy theme I wanted.  I also wanted it to not be huge and hide my cords.  I can’t stand when cords are everywhere- pet peeve.  Anyways, after a lot of online searching I found one I love!
  3. Chair- I wanted a swivel chair.  I had one before and I love how easy it is to move around.  Especially once I had hardwood floors I knew I would want one.  I wanted one with clean lines and somewhat modern.  
  4. Faux Fiddle Leaf Fig- I knew I needed some greenery in my office.  I also knew that real ones were going to be tricky with lighting and I just didn’t want to deal with that.  So I opted for some faux plants.  This one is the perfect size and such a good price!
  5. Faux Palm Tree- I love how palm plants spread out a little more.  Really taking up some good space.  This was perfect to add some more color to the room overall.
  6. Acrylic Calendar- I love having a huge calendar where I can see all the things.  But I also wanted it to look cute and be practical.  Well I found the perfect one!  It’s mounted on the wall and can easily be written on with dry erase markers but doesn’t look like a plain white board.  Plus, it has some gold detail which makes me swoon!
  7. Bookcase- I saw this online and knew it would be perfect in my office.  I wanted a bookcase that would close so my girls wouldn’t be rummaging through it.  I also liked the clean lines.  I got the color grey but I noticed they’re out of stock of that color right now.  But they do have the shell color which I love as well!
  8. Diffuser- I love a good diffuser, especially when I’m working.  This one is made of ceramic and not plastic and is so chic looking.  It just blends in so nicely which is what I wanted.
  9. Printer- This might sound silly but I didn’t want a black clunky printer in my office.  I wanted something that would feel seamless and transition well.  I looked for a long time but finally found one that not only offered what I needed from copying, and printing but also looked so chic.
  10. Large Basket With White Flowers- I wanted a basket where I could put boxes from blogging if needed, and also put my blanket in as well.  This one is not only the perfect size but also super cute! I didn’t find the exact one online but this one is super cute too and similar colors.
  11. Seagrass Basket- These come in a set of 3.  I only used the medium one in my office but it works perfectly with the plant and theme.  
  12. Pieced Triangle Frame- This frame is super cute and just the pop of color I needed on my desk.
  13. Mirror- I wanted a mirror in my office for sure!  It’s nice when I’m doing videos or trying on new products.  This one screamed boho chic, and fits so well in the space.
  14. Bamboo Shades- We had installed all new shades in the house knew I wanted to do the same for my office.  I love how these let some natural light filter in a little.  But also are a statement for the overall feel of the room too.  I chose the Half Moon Bay color.
  15. Blush Stapler- It sounds silly but there’s always random things I want stapled and of course I wanted a cute stapler.  This one hits all the marks!
  16. Blush Tape Dispenser- I can’t tell you how often I want tape!  I’m so excited to finally have a tape dispenser. Makes like a little easier.
  17. Letter Sorter- I’m a sucker for a letter sorter.  Keeps my life sane and organized.  This one is both functional and chic!
  18. Blanket- I saw this blanket at the store and it was game over.  Not only super cozy but also went perfect with my overall theme.
  19. Light- This light fixture was the first thing I bought for the office! It really started the whole theme for me.  I just loved how it felt a little boho and also added a bit of drama and overall statement to the room.  Still my favorite thing about the space!
  20. Paint- We painted it last year.  If you want to read up on the non-toxic paint we used and why- read my full blog post on it here. I still love the paint so much!

 

What do you think of how it turned out?  Let me know your favorite element!

March Natural Beauty Box Roundup

March Natural Beauty Box Roundup

March Natural Beauty Box roundup is here!  Can you believe it’s March?!  I felt like January and February flew by- literally.  So excited we’re getting closer to Spring!  I’ve got the lowdown on all the clean beauty boxes.  First up this month is Beauty Heroes!  Keep checking back as I update the list.

Natural beauty box

Excited to share with you Beauty Heroes March Discovery box!

Beauty Heroes: March Discovery BLUH Alchemy

So excited to share this month’s Beauty Heroes Box with you, BLUH Alchemy!  I’ve loved getting to know the product and also learning the back story behind this natural beauty brand.  

 BLUH Alchemy was started by Becky Bluh who had a strong desire to help her daughter’s skin heal from itchy, dry and sensitive skin.  Becky knew she was on to something when her daughter’s skin began to heal.  She realized she wanted to pursue the power of plants even further and really learn of their medicinal properties. 

Besides experimenting on her own, she also was trained in cosmetic chemistry where she collaborated with top natural chemists to create BLUH Alchemy.  Not only does this innovative skincare line help protect against environmental effects, but natural aging, and daily oxidative stressors.  Using botanicals, BLUE Alchemy treats the skin with intentional products that produce results naturally.

I have never used any BLUE Alchemy products and was so excited to try the products out!  Once a product junkie, always a product junkie.

Heroic Product- BLUE Alchemy Multi C Serum

If you thought you knew about Vitamin C, step aside.  This is a new Vitamin C you have yet to use!  This is a quote about the product:

A breakthrough in botanical technology, Multi C Serum features the world’s first full- spectrum photoactive Vitamin C, a cellular extract from the kakadu plum that boasts 50 x more antioxidant potency than a Florida orange.

It’s actually more stable than any other Vitamin C!  This serum has a multitude of Vitamin C’s all wrapped into one.  From quandong and sea buckthorn berry oils.  When you combine them together they are a force to be reckoned with!

It’s no secret Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can brighten, lighten and create a glowing complexion.  Plus, this unique formula has peptides that help to firm the skin, green coffee, and ferric acid.  Say bye to dull, ruddy skin and hello to glowing, radiant skin!  I use it after toning my skin at night and in the morning.  I noticed an improved overall texture, glow and evenness to my skin.  I love how it absorbs so effortlessly into the skin.  And can we talk about the luxe frosted glass bottle?  I love how it pumps how and has a cap- so easy for travel. I can’t wait to keep using it!  

BLUH Alchemy Toning Elixir- 

The sidekick this month is just as good!  This deep hydration toning elixir takes your skin from parched and dry to hydrated and supple.  Not only does this toning elixir contain bioactive and antioxidants but hyaluronic acid and hibiscus to keep moisture intact.  This hydration helps to firm your skin while helping to fade fine lines and of course when skin is hydrated it naturally glows!  

One of my favorite things I found to be in this toning elixir was Niacinamide which is vitamin B3.  This is a powerhouse ingredient for your skin!  It has long been applauded for it’s ability to soothe the skin, calm inflammation and help clear acne.  Not too mention helps strengthen the skin.  This really is such an amazing toning elixir!  I spray this on my skin and pat in with my hands morning and night.  I can’t get enough of it!

Best part is you can get this fabulous box right now for such a steal!  This box is valued at $209 but you can snag it for $42.95…I mean what are you waiting for?!  This box has been one of my very favorites and I don’t want you to miss out on it!  Hop on it now if you’re thinking of getting it before they sell out!

Boxwalla April Box

Boxwalla’s Beauty Box for April featuring Malaya and Flowerspice.

Boxwalla March Box-

This is a bi-monthly box. I really love that it’s bi-monthly!  It makes you really savor each product.  This month we are seeing two different brands in the box.  Flowerspice and Malaya.  

Flowerspice Soothe and Repair Daily Moisturizer- This moisturizer is so lovely!  It completely hydrates your skin but doesn’t leave it feeling greasy or oily.  The scent is so nice too.  Very different but I love it.  It’s a mixture of rose and coriander.  It comes in a glass jar.  I would scoop some out and apply it to my skin after my serums at night.  My skin would feel so hydrated and supple in the morning.  I even have been using it for my hands as they have been drier and loving how moisturized they feel.  This isn’t your average moisturizer.  It’s filled with aloe, prickly pear and Swiss Mountain Spring Water.  A serious treat for the skin!

Malaya  Advanced Repair Mask- This mask is unlike any mask I’ve used. It is both clarifying and nourishing at the same time.  Made with neem flower honey, bentonite clay and aloe, this mask really is a powerhouse when it comes to hitting all the skincare needs.  I love how my skin feels cleared, yet hydrated and glowing after using it.  And the smell!  I just love the smell.  It’s a lemongrass, blue tansy smell that I can’t get enough of!  I love how the ingredients are soothing like aloe and blue tansy, but at the same time clarifying from the honey, and clay.  Can’t stop using it!

I would snag this box soon!  It’s a $160 value but you can get it for $49.95!  Get it here!

 

March Clean Beauty Box

The March Clean Beauty Box is all about Indulge!

The Clean Beauty Box-

This month’s clean beauty box is filled with Beneath Your Mask.  This brand is known for really repairing and rejuvenating the skin and helping to reverse damage caused by environmental toxins. The brand fits so well with the theme, Indulge.  It’s all about indulging your senses and your skin.

Total Body Elixir- This elixir is such a indulgent skin treat.  It not only deeply nourishes your skin with 18 pure plant oils and botanicals but it also help protect it from the environment.  Your skin is left glowing and radiant!  The ingredient deck is stacked too.  With Baobab seed oil, white camellia seed oil, pomegranate seed oil and sea buckthorn berry co2.  These oils not only hydrate but also help heal stretch marks and scars and calm redness.  I apply the oil to slightly damp skin after showering and my skin is left feeling so soft.  

Skin + Hair Serum- This is such a unique product.  Not only can you use it on your skin but also your hair.  With nourishing ingredients for your scalp like neem this is perfect for calming scalp inflammation but reducing dandruff.  I applied it on my scalp and ends of hair at night and then slept in it.  I would shampoo my hair the next day and it would feel so hydrated.  I didn’t need to apply that much since my hair is fine and thin.  A little goes a long way.  For my skin I would apply as the last step in my skincare routine at night.  My skin would feel hydrated and moisturized but not greasy.  It has such a nice vibrant scent with the lemongrass oil in it.  Really adds a glow to the skin.  Such a great product for travel too!  A two in one!

This box is valued at $90 but you can get it for $41.95!  Such a steal for a green beauty box!  Get it here!

 

Detox Box for March

The Detox Box for March is featuring W3ll People’s 5 minute face!

The Detox Box March-

I always love seeing what’s in the Detox Box!  Sometimes it’s makeup, other times it’s skincare and then sometimes you get hair products. This month it’s all makeup and I couldn’t be more excited!  

We are seeing W3ll People in this month’s box.  It’s all about the 5 minute face!  You get the Bio Baked Bronzer Powder, Bio Brightener Loose Powder, Expressionist Mascara, Luminaria Eyeshadow,  and then you also either get the Optimist Lipstick in Soulmate, and a Kabuki Brush, or Optimist Lipstick in Choose Love, Expressionist Liquid Eyeliner and the Eye Contour Brush.  Your basically set with all you need to create the ultimate green beauty makeup look!  You get all of this for $49.95!

I would hop on this box- such a good one I have a feeling it may sell out quick! Grab The Detox Box here!

What You Should Know When Vaccinating Your Child with Dr Ben Lynch

What You Should Know When Vaccinating Your Child with Dr Ben Lynch

In episode #34 we are diving deep into what you should know when vaccinating your child.  This is actually an episode I recorded with Dr. Ben Lynch a couple years ago when I had the Gurl Gone Green Podcast.  I’m bringing it up again because the topic of vaccines is a hot one and not going anywhere, but also because this interview isn’t a do this or do that interview but one to inform the consumer.

Dr. Lynch has experienced the effects of vaccines first hand in patients and has interviewed some of the leading doctors and researchers on vaccines.  This isn’t meant to be an anti-vaccine podcast but an educational podcast.  The goal is to arm you as a parent or guardian with the information to make an informed choice for you and your family.  Often vaccines are treated as a cookie cutter approach for everyone, but unfortunately every body is different.  In this podcast, Dr. Lynch and I discuss vaccines that should be avoided considering the research, events that put children at risk for developing autism or spectrum disorders post vaccination, if those with MTHFR should avoid vaccinations, what HERD Immunity is and SO much more.  You don’t want to miss this podcast!  It’s packed full of relevant information.  Plus, Dr. Lynch shares his top resources for further education on vaccines.

Dr. Ben Lynch received his Cell and Molecular Biology, BS from the University of Washington and his ND from Bastyr University. His passion for identifying the cause of disease directed him towards nutrigenomics and methylation dysfunction. Currently, he researches, writes and presents worldwide on the topic of MTHFR and methylation defects. You may learn more about Dr Lynch and his work at www.MTHFR.net. Dr Lynch is also the President & CEO of Seeking Health, a company oriented towards disease prevention and health promotion. He lives in Seattle, WA with his wife, Nadia, and three boys, Tasman, Mathew and Theodor.

Best Natural Beauty Valentine Gifts

Best Natural Beauty Valentine Gifts

Hi guys, I’m back with a post on my best natural beauty Valentine Gifts!  If you’re reading this you are more than likely a women.  So ladies, if you want something from this blog, do yourself a solid and send it to your hubs! 😉

He will thank you for making gift giving a lot more enjoyable and less stressful. There are so many fun products out now in natural beauty.  I didn’t want you to miss out on any of them!  I feel like in the last couple of months I’ve tried so many new products that I haven’t properly introduced to you guys.  Shame on me!

I’m sharing some of my tried and true faves that you can never go wrong with but also some new faves that I think you’ll love!  

Natural Beauty Valentine's Day

My top natural beauty picks for Valentine’s Day. From organic skincare and natural makeup and more.

 

Natural Beauty Valentine Gift Ideas-

 

True Botanical’s Antioxidant Booster and Serum-

When it comes to giving your skin the best of the best, these two take the cake!  I talk about them a lot but it’s because they work.  Most people ask me all the time what products I recommend for maintaining a youthful complexion.  I know anti-aging is a word that is looked down upon in green beauty.  Which I totally get.  However, no one wants to look older than they are.  I’m sure everyone can agree on this!

These two little numbers deliver antioxidants right to your skin.  Antioxidants are what cancel out the free radicals.  The older we get the less antioxidants are bodies produce.  So we need to help them out a bit.  That’s where the Antioxidant Booster and Cellular Repair Serum come in.  The Antioxidant Booster is in powder form.  Meaning it’s not activated until you mix it with water.  Pretty cool huh?!  

That means the freshest, most potent antioxidants are being delivered right to your skin.  The Cellular Repair Serum works to calm inflammation and it’s also low enough in molecular weight to go past the skin’s surface and deliver the nutrients it needs. 

It’s the DREAM TEAM!  I haven’t found anything else in natural beauty that works quite like these two- thank me later!

Get True Botanical’s here!

Tata Harper Clarifying Mask

This one’s good!  Ok- they’re all good.  Sorry, it’s going to be hard to choose.  This mask I discovered last year and let’s just say we’ve become fast friends.  I had already tried a lot of Tata Harper and was surprised I hadn’t tried this mask.  I got a tip that I had to try it from another skincare guru- us skincare junkies stick together! 

Anyways, I tried and instantly was wondering why I had never done it before.  The name is kind of deceiving.  It is a clarifying mask but not your usual clay masks that dry your skin out- you know what I mean.  Instead it feels more like a peel almost.  Your skin feels smooth, decongested, less red, and pores minimized. I also love the glow it gives me.  You know when you’ve had a hard night, maybe a hard week- this mask is for you.  

Honestly, I use it all the time.  It really gives my skin a good detox without drying it out.  Two cheers for that!  

Get the Tata Harper Mask Here!

Sappho Brow Pomade

Say hello to your new best friend- but really.  Natural looking brows are hard to come by.  That is until you meet Sappho Brow Pomade.  This little jar takes your brows from average to HELLO in a minute.  If you’ve been using a pencil or brow wand try this instead. 

I find a pencil and a brow wand are really hard to work with and unless you’re a makeup artist you may end up with cleopatra brows or brow gel all over.  The reason I love Sappho Brow Pomade is because it makes doing your brows SO easy.  All you need is a brow brush and you’re good.  It is easy to use and gives your brows a natural look instead of a drawn on look.

Plus, take it from someone who has dark brows- this one doesn’t show any red.  I wear the color Brown Black.  Get some Sappho and change your life…I mean brows!

Clean Beauty Beautycounter Eyeshadow

Beautycounter eyeshadow’s on full display here. Love these rich, full pigmented shadows!

 

Beautycounter Eyeshadow Palettes

Do I sound like a broken record yet with these eyeshadow palettes?  Well, at least you know I’m consistent.  These are the BEST eyeshadows I’ve found in clean beauty…I repeat the BEST eyeshadows.  I’ve tried a ton and nothing compares.  The pigment of these shadows are smooth and velvety and rich.  They LAST all day…yep.  I prime my lids with Ilia’s Eye Primer- also my favorite eye primer I’ve used.  

I have the Classic Eye Shadow Palette and I just got the Statement Palette and you better believe I’m already planning on getting another one. I’m hooked.  I also love that Beautcounter tests their makeup powders for 10 heavy metals 3 times.  Yes, they are literally third party testing their products 3 times for 10 heavy metals.  I felt that deserved repeating!  Know anyone else doing that in clean beauty?  Me neither. 

Get some Beautycounter Eyeshadow Palettes here and be amazed at the quality!

Osmia Serenity Milk Bath

This is definitely a Valentine’s Day Gift.  I don’t think a lot of people are sitting around buying Milk Bath for themselves- but we really should.  Everything Osmia makes is SO good.  I had been wanting to try this for a while and Sarah the founder sent me some- God Bless her!  

I really love the smell, the way it makes your skin feel silky smooth and the fact that I forget about everything for 20 minutes.  Yeah, it’s pretty luxurious.  If your significant other wants you to be a little less snippety and a little more zen, then this might be a good start to getting you there. I also can’t leave out their bar soaps- one of my faves- forever.  They smell amazing, they come packaged flawlessly and look beautiful.  Yes, bar soaps can look beautiful.  My fave is coffee mint.

Get your zen on with Osmia’s Milk Bath and car soaps here!

Honest Beauty Mascara

Ok, it kind of goes without saying on this one too.  I know I should be getting paid to promote this but I’m not.  I seriously just think it’s the best of the best and until I find a different mascara in clean beauty I won’t stop talking about this one!

What really would be icing on the cake is if your honey just hit the subscribe and save on Amazon so you don’t have to think about reordering.  Brilliant huh?  I know.  In case you haven’t heard me rave about it, this mascara gives my lashes length, separation, volume and drama.  It’s the whole enchilada!

Get your Honest Beauty Mascara on here!

Clean Beauty Valentine's Day

So many great natural beauty product gift ideas for Valentine’ Day!

 

Leahlani Honey Love-

I really love Leahlani’s products.  They were some of the first in natural beauty.  They work, aren’t out of this world expensive and the founder is just the sweetest.  She had sent me some Honey Love, their Microdermabrasion Exfoliant and I fell in love all over again with it. 

I had tried it before but it had been a while.  It was like rewatching one of your favorite movies and realizing how awesome it was and wondering why you waited 3 years to watch it again.  Yeah, basically how I felt once I tried Honey Love again.  It smells insane and gives me baby soft skin when I’m done using it.  Such a gentle exfoliant.  

If you’re needing a new product love affair in your life, grab some Honey Love

Aillea + Organic Bath Co. Body Butter

This is a special collaboration between Aillea and Organic Bath Co.  They sent me some back in the fall and I started using it a couple months ago and I’m addicted.  It feels so good on the skin, has 5 ingredients and smells so good.  It just a good all around basic body butter that gets the job done.

I apply it right out of the shower and my skin is hydrated and happy.  Plus, the citrus scent is invigorating to say the least.  

Get your body butter here! They have other scents too, I want them all!

Aila Nail Polish

Who doesn’t want fab looking nails for Valentine’s Day?  Well, Aila is my got too.  I love how the formula goes on so smooth and the color selection is fun and upbeat.  You don’t feel like you’re sacrificing anything when making the switch.  Well, except toxins, but I think you’re ok with that.

I love me some Bodega, Room 212 and Namaste.  But let’s be real, I want ALL the colors!  Don’t forget to get their Better Than Gel Topcoat. It’s rated a 1 on EWG- for a nail polish that’s kind of unheard of and it plain works.  Just like the name suggests it will leave your nails in tip top shape!

Get some Aila Polish here!

Crunchi Brushes

I get so many questions about makeup brushes.  I really love Crunchi’s makeup brushes.  They’re a little newer on the market within the last 6 months and they work so well.  I love how sturdy they feel and how they don’t shed.  They are vegan made with Talkon synthetic fibers.  

I have the whole brush set and there isn’t one I don’t use.  Their big powder brush and foundation brush are definite must haves. If you want to take your makeup to the next level, get yourself some luxe brushes!  

Check out the Crunchi Brushes here!

Natural beauty Ilia review

Wearing one of my favorite natural beauty lipsticks in Ultra Violet by Ilia.

 

Ilia Color Block Lipstick in Ultra Violet

Everytime I’ve worn this lipstick color people have asked what are you wearing.  It’s a show stopper for sure.  The perfect winter lipstick color.  Shoot, I would probably wear this all year long.  Their color block lipstick really takes the pigment game to the next level.  

It lasts all day and gives my lips some serious playing time in the spotlight.  I love just swiping this on with a pretty neutral, bare face and calling it a day.  

Check out all their colors here!

Still not sure on any products?  No worries, I’ve got your back!
