I was so excited to try out these skincare products from Flawless Beauty Essentials! These products are full of naturally powerful ingredients that help to reveal healthy, glowing skin! Of course, they are vegan and cruelty free… so let’s jump right in! If you just want a quick recap, skip to “The Bottom Line” at the end of this post.

I’m going to start with my favorite product that I tried, the Rejuvenating Anti-Oxidant Mask. I’ll get into all of the fantastic ingredients in a minute, but the best part of this mask is the scent! To me it smells like a delicious blend of berries and tea… my boyfriend said it smelled like raspberry yogurt. Whatever the scent, it is seriously one of the best smelling products I have ever put on my face!

Ok, so what’s in it? Organic Green Tea, Rosehip, and Vitamin C combine together to help fight free radicals, dullness, and signs of aging.  Kaolin Clay detoxifies and exfoliates to remove dead skin cells. 6.5 % Glycolic Acid penetrates the layers of the skin to speed up cell rejuvenation and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This formula is made to correct skin issues and I’m a huge fan! It definitely made my skin brighter, smoother, and softer with just one use. This will be a weekly skin treatment for me (if I don’t eat it all first! Haha, I probably won’t do that but it really does smell good enough to eat).

Next up, is the Vitamin C Serum that is formulated to brighten and tighten your skin without over-drying your pretty little face. This bad boy contains “a concentrated delivery system for the highest form of active, bio- available vitamin C for beautiful skin without the dryness that can often come with it.”

This is an interesting product! I love Vitamin C serums because of the healthy glow they give the skin. This serum is no different! I applied 1-2 pumps of this in the morning. It is instantly absorbed and has a noticeable tightening effect.  I don’t have sagging skin, but I imagine this would help those that want their face to look tightened and toned. After over a week of using this product, I do notice that my skin looks brighter and healthier.

Next, and probably the product I was most curious about, is the Niacinamide Serum – Vitamin B3 5%. So, what are these things and how do they help the skin? Vitamin B3 helps to hydrate, shrink pores, tighten skin, and even helps to improve acne, rosacea, and hyper-pigmentation. This anti-inflammatory formula also helps to boost collagen production which is essential for reducing and preventing wrinkles for youthful looking skin.

I used 1-2 pumps of this serum before bedtime. Like the Vitamin C Serum, it absorbed into my skin within seconds. It has a thick, gel-like consistency and a fresh, subtle scent. I used this all over my face including the eye area. I have fair, Irish skin and redness is something we pale-skinned girls experience every day.  Using an anti-inflammatory product helps to calm the skin, which I noticed happening after using this serum.

Next up,  is the Daily Facial Moisturizer. No matter your skin type, using a daily moisturizer is very important if you want your skin to look its very best. I really like this product! My skin has been drier lately, probably because I haven’t been drinking as much water as I usually do in warmer months and because of the single-digit temps. we have been fighting our way through in North Carolina!

This is the perfect everyday, anytime moisturizer. I used 1 pump in the AM and PM after the serums discussed above. Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil provide deep hydration without making your skin looks greasy. It absorbs within minutes and makes your skin look naturally healthy. I will absolutely keep using this!

Last, is the Ageless Eye Serum. Whether you are new to skincare, or you’re looking for a new eye product, this one has got it all! Vegan Hyaluronic Acid and Peptides improve “dark circles, wrinkles, sagging, puffing, loss of plump and firm skin, loss of tone, loss of resilience, and swelling.” Well… what more could you want???

This serum has a gel-like consistency and you only need the smallest amount of product to cover the under eye area, so the bottle will last for quite some time. It glides on easily and absorbs after a few minutes. For me, it had a slight cooling and tightening effect and definitely hydrated my under eyes thanks to Aloe and Vitamin E. It is very important to moisturize this area to reduce and preventing fine lines, but you don’t want a product that is too heavy and slides off. You need a natural eye product that quickly absorbs to deliver results, which is exactly what this little guy does.

The Bottom Line

If you want vegan, cruelty-free products that are full of natural ingredients, Flawless Beauty Essentials is for you. After using the products above, my skin looks healthier, smoother, and younger. It is also noticeably more hydrated and calmed. Whether you are looking for the perfect daily moisturizer, a treatment mask to rejuvenate your skin, or a fantastic eye serum, you will find a product you will love from Flawless Beauty Essentials. 

Thank you, Flawless Beauty Essentials, for sending me these products to review!!!


Swift Heist Beauty Body Scrub and Body Oil Reviews… Help For Your Dry, Winter Skin Is Here!

Company: Swift Heist Beauty





Ooh Baby, it’s cold outside… and you know my skin is as dry as a bone! If your skin is anything like mine, the second the weather drops it gets extremely dry, red, and cracked (not cute). I’m always up for trying new vegan and cruelty-free products that can help, so I was very excited to try out this body scrub and body oil from Swift Heist Beauty!

Using a moisturizing body scrub is a sure-fire way to keep your skin looking smooth and glow-y! The SMOOTH CRIMINÁLE Body Scrub is a sugar scrub that gently polishes away dead skin cells to reveal radiant skin. This scrub rinses away easily and has a gorgeous coconut and rose scent that leaves your skin delicately fragranced. The star ingredients of this scrub are coconut oil, shea butter, and sweet almond oil, so you know your skin’s going to feel great!

I used this scrub all over my body, including my insanely dry feet (I honestly don’t know how feet can be as dry as mine and not fall off!). I’m happy to report that with just one use, my feet were softer, smoother, and felt more comfortable! Goodbye dull looking skin!

After using the body scrub, I slathered on the summery, lime-scented HOSTILE TAKEOVER Body Oil. This body oil deeply moisturizes and improved my poor, struggling winter skin. I love that it has a bright lime scent that helped me forget that it is below freezing temperatures outside.  This body oil has a thin consistency that quickly and easily absorbs into the skin, giving you instant hydration and a healthy looking sheen, thanks to Grape seed oil, Camellia Seed Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, and Aloe! I’m in love!

The Bottom Line

Swift Heist Beauty offers high quality, beautifully scented products with natural ingredients that deliver fast results!

The SMOOTH CRIMINÁLE Body Scrub is the perfect way to scrub away dead skin cells for fresh, smooth looking skin!

If you have desperately dry skin like I do, I highly suggest ditching the lotions and creams. Just go straight for some body oil! I’m not exaggerating when I say that my skin looked so SOmuch better after using the HOSTILE TAKEOVER Body oil just a few times!

I also really enjoy the sleek, glass packaging (yay, no plastic!) and the simple yet stylish black and white labels of the products.

I highly recommend these fantastic vegan and cruelty-free products from Swift Heist Beauty to get, or to keep your skin looking summer-ready all year round! Head on over to their website to see all of the products that they have to offer!

Finally Trying Arbonne Products – My Thoughts!

Company: Arbonne

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 11.13.11 AM

Review: I have always been curious about Arbonne products, but for some reason, had never tried them. They offer a wide range of products from mascara to protein bars, so why not give ’em a try?

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 11.58.52 AM

First, I tried the It’s A Long Story Mascara. I must say, that I really like it! I am not usually a fan of mascaras with plastic bristle brushes but this one works very well. It separates and lengthens every lash and makes them super black. The more coats you put on, the longer and more dramatic your lashes look. I didn’t have any issues with it smearing during the day. This is generally a fantastic mascara!

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 11.57.32 AM

Next, is their simply named Makeup Primer. It has a thick consistency and has the typical “silicone” primer feel to it. This primer glides on the skin quickly and easily to create a smooth canvas for your face makeup. I can’t say for sure if it prolonged the wear of my makeup (since I use a setting spray) but it did help to make my skin appear smoother.

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.00.31 PM

Arbonne’s Shea Butter Hand Cream is a great little moisturizer! It has a thick consistency and a sweet, sugary fragrance. It absorbed into my skin within seconds and left behind soft skin. Shea butter is the star ingredient which nourishes skin with no greasiness, yay!

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.03.13 PM

Like I said, Arbonne offers a wide range of products, not just beauty related items. Their Arbonne Essentials Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt Protein Snack Bars are one of many health products that they offer. Although the flavor of the bar was dark chocolate, I would say that this bar wasn’t very sweet. If you’re not a huge fan of sugary snacks, but still want a protein boost, this bar may be for you! It has 10 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber, so it was actually pretty filling despite its small size!

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.04.47 PM

Next, the Energy Fizz Sticks in the Pomegranate Flavor is another health item that can give your day a little kick! This powder easily mixes into water to provide B vitamins, chromium, green tea, guarana, and ginseng to help power through your day feeling alert and energized! Although I rely on coffee most days, these energy sticks are a great (healthier) alternative. All you have to do is throw one in your bag and use it when you’re feeling a little sluggish. I like these a lot!

The Bottom Line

If I had to chose, I think the mascara is my favorite product that I tried! I love how it darkens and lengthens my little lashes! The makeup primer definitely made my skin appear a little smoother and the hand cream did a great job hydrating my dry, winter skin, so I really enjoyed those as well.

If you like animal-friendly products that actually work, I think you should give Arbonne a try! I’m particularly impressed with the makeup and body products! Thank you to Natalie, for sending me these products to review, and I look forward to trying more Arbonne products in the future!

Laurmé Skin Care Review – Powerful, Natural Products for Gorgeous, Glowing Skin!

Company: Laurmé Skin Care

Screen Shot 2017-12-19 at 9.22.39 AMScreen Shot 2017-12-19 at 9.22.09 AM


Vitamin C Brightening Serum

Intense Rejuvenating Serum

Ultra Hydrating Facial Cream


I’m impressed.

I’ll just leave a 2 word review, ok? Ok.

Just kidding. You all know that I review a lot of skin care products. A LOT. When reviewing products, I look for a few key characteristics. Does it contain high quality, natural, good-for-your-skin ingredients? Is it easy and pleasant to use? Does it deliver results? Is it reasonably priced? And of course, is it vegan and cruelty-free?

I can say with confidence that Laurmé Skin Care checks all of the boxes of a fantastic skin care line. I truly enjoyed and looked forward to using them because I knew my skin would look better when I did!

Alright, let’s jump right in!

The first product that I used was the Vitamin C Brightening Serum. I was excited to try this out because my pale skin has the tendency to look dull, especially during the cold winter months. This serum contains Certified Organic Bulgarian Rose water to help calm and soothe the skin, along with Organic Aloe, Shea Butter and Sunflower Seed oil to soften and smooth. It brightens skin while fighting the signs of aging and provides hydration.

I used this serum in the mornings under my make up in place of a moisturizer. 2-3 pumps was all I needed for my face and it completely absorbed within minutes, which is perfect for people that don’t want to wait 10-15 minutes for their moisturizer to soak in before applying make up. This serum made my skin silky smooth to the touch and made my foundation glide on effortlessly. It definitely gives your skin a brightening effect, so I liked to wear this without make up, as well. It has a subtle citrusy scent that I really like and love that it actually delivers on its promises. My skin look radiant and healthy after using this, and I adore it!

Next, is the Intense Rejuvenation Serum that I used every night.  Since your skin cells renew themselves as you sleep, it is important to use a powerful serum or treatment before you get some zzz’s if you want to wake up to beautiful skin. This serum contains Bulgarian organic rose water and organic lavender to soothe and calm delicate skin, while providing intense hydration. Powerful Anti-oxidant Vitamins A, C & E renew and brighten skin tone, Sodium Hyaluronate provides intense hydration & nourishment, and
Tamanu oil hydrates dry skin.

This serum is a good alternative for people with sensitive skin and could easily be used during the day as a moisturizer, I just chose to use it at night. Like the Vitamin C Brightening serum, my skin instantly drank this serum up! Within seconds, this serum was completely absorbed and my face was noticeably plumped and hydrated, with a nice healthy glow. Two thumbs up!

Last, is the Ultra Hydrating Facial Cream which I used on top of the Intense Rejuvenation SerumThis cream is thick, yet like the other products, absorbs into the skin incredibly quickly, leaving your skin looking hydrated, plump, healthy, and radiant! If you suffer from dry skin, this cream is for you! In fact, this facial cream was formulated to address extremely dry and sensitive skin that did not benefit from other products that were on the market. When you use this facial cream, you won’t even look you have dry skin! It’s true!

What makes this cream so powerful? “Anti-aging powerhouses DMAE & MSM team up with the tropical potency of organic aloe, coconut, and jojoba oils for dramatically rejuvenated skin.” Glycerin provides hydration & nourishment, Organic White Willow Bark smooths out rough, dull and tired skin and Organic Neem Seed oil nourishes dehydrated skin.

I absolutely love this moisturizer! It makes your face look dewy, smooth, and healthy and is now part of my everyday skin care routine!

The Bottom Line

Laurmé Skin Care is a winner! The products are carefully formulated to address the needs of dry, sensitive, and/or aging skin and absolutely deliver results. Individually, these products make my skin look more hydrated and healthy. When used together, my skin looks absolutely radiant, soft, moisturized, and just looks well-cared for! I am a HUGE fan of this line and I am so thankful for having the opportunity to try out these products. I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone that thinks that there are no products that will improve their dry, sensitive or aging skin. I’m telling ya, Laurmé Skin Care has products to help you!

Head on over to their website to check out all of the products available and let me know what you think! Thank you, Laurmé Skin Care for sending me these products to review!


Naked Soul Inspired Organic Beauty – High Quality and Luxurious Skin Care & Giveaway!!!

Company: Naked Soul Beauty

“Our luxurious ingredients and fresh botanicals will transport you to the cherry blossom-lined streets of Kyoto and the white sand beaches of Tulum. As President of Naked Soul, I am committed to bringing you the safest and most nourishing ingredients for your skin and spirit.

You will indulge your skin with exotic ingredients like white camellia seed oil from Asia, known as the “beautification oil” and a geisha’s secret to flawless skin and lustrous hair. All the products in our collection are free of parabens, dioxins, sulfate cleansers, synthetic colors, and fragrances and are never tested on animals.

In addition to carefully curating the finest ingredients, I believe business should benefit as many people as possible. Naked Soul’s strongly supports fair-trade and ecological practices. When you purchase products from Naked Soul, you are investing in your beauty and that of the planet. Now that’s beautiful.”


All of these products contain Organic White Cammellia Oil, a powerhouse ingredient that provides moisture, softens your skin, and fights the signs of aging. Sign me up!

Ok! First up, is the SACRED Cleansing Cream. I love this cleanser! It is just what you need to gently wash away all of your make up while adding moisture and anti-aging properties to your skin. All you do is massage 3-4 pumps onto your face, add a little water, massage, and voilà! Your face is completely clean and hydrated! It easily removed my mascara, eye liner, foundation, and several layers of bronzer (hey, don’t judge me, it’s winter!).

The SACRED Cleansing Oil is the pure oil version of the SACRED Cleansing Cream discussed above. Like the cream version, it completely removes make up and impurities while adding a dose of moisture to the skin. It is just a matter of preference whether you would like to use a cream or oil cleanser!

Next, is the fabulous GODDESS Face & Eye Cream! You all know I love a good, multi-use product! Organic White Cammellia Oil gave my poor, dry skin some must needed moisture. I used 2-3 pumps of this face/eye cream and my skin instantly drank it up! My skin does not feel or look dry whatsoever, it looks dewy, fresh, and hydrated! I really like to use this under my make up and like its subtle, slightly sweet scent.

I was also sent a sample of Naked Soul Beauty’s Hair Prayer Oil Elixir. I have long, curly, highlighted hair, so you know your girl needs some hair oil! I really enjoy this one, especially the floral fragrance. It is absolutely gorgeous! I concentrated this product on the ends of  my hair, then ran my fingers through my curls (staying away from the roots).   I am happy to report that my locks looked healthier and shiny, which noticeably less frizz. I also worked a tiny bit of this oil on my dry hair, which helped to smooth my curls. I really like this hair oil!

If masks aren’t a part of your skincare routine, they need to be! I tried out the BREATHE Ageless Pearl Mask, Naked Soul Beauty’s “most powerful anti-aging mask.” This mask applies to the skin like a gel, and works to build collagen and fight blemishes. It contains passion flower, sea kelp, and actual pearls! It has a sweet scent and leaves your skin feeling smooth, moisturized, and calmed. It is a luxurious treat for your skin!

The HEART Tight Mask is another fantastic skin treatment! It will “lift, tone, and tighten with algae extracts” and has an absolutely stunning rose scent. When you apply this gel to your face, it quickly dries and tightens on your skin. You can actually feel your skin being lifted. How cool is that?!

Next, I tried the SOUL White Camellia Oil Exotic Elixir, starring Naked Soul Beauty’s signature ingredient. This oil can do it all… you can use it on your body, in your bath, and even in your hair to add moisture and nourishment to your routine. My hands were incredibly dry, thanks to the recent cold weather, and this oil really helped to moisturize them. After a few applications, my skin was as good as new. It also leaves a nice, healthy looking sheen on the skin that I really like! If you’re curious about White Camellia Oil and what it can do for your skin, I suggest giving this product a try!

Another great way to try out some of Naked Soul Beauty’s products is their SIMPLICITY Collection Sample Set which will give you “brighter, younger-looking skin.” It includes 4 generously sized samples jars of the ALIGNED Sea Kelp Face & Eye Night Serum, LOVE Exfoliating Mask, Goddess Face and Eye Cream, and the Sacred Cleansing Oil.

The Bottom Line

I love this line! Everything from the sleek, packaging to the high-quality ingredients and formulations, I truly enjoy Naked Soul Beauty’s products! I had never used (or heard of) White Camellia Oil, but now that I have, I’m in love! My skin looks bright, healthy, and hydrated and my hair looks healthy and shiny, as well… who wouldn’t want that?!

It is also great that they offer sample sets to let people discover their new favorite products. Check out my Instagram posts later today for a giveaway of the SIMPLICITY Collection Sample Set and the Heart Tight Mask @VeganTreasureHunter, and Naked Soul Beauty’s Instagram for their latest sales @NakedSoulBeauty.

Mint Supply Co. – All Natural & Vegan Candles… It’s Beginning to Smell A Lot Like Christmas!

Product: Blood Orange 100% Natural Soy Wax Candle


If you’re looking for holiday gifts or just a little something special for yourself, look no further! These hand-poured soy wax candles from MintSupplyCo. are just what you need!

I had the opportunity to review one of these candles and I’m in love! They are 100% natural and scented with essential oils, so you don’t need to worry about harmful chemicals that are found in typical store bought candles.

The Blood Orange scent is absolutely fabulous! It is made with Pink Grapefruit, Bergamot, and Wild Orange essential oils which blend together to create a bright, fresh and uplifting scent. It is sweet, sophisticated and I think just about everyone would enjoy this candle! I’ve been burning it for hours and hours so this candle will last for quite some time!

Looking for something a bit more seasonal? I was also sent tea lights in the scents Fraser Fir, Peppermint Bark, and Cinnamon Clove. Ooh baby, these candles are sure to bring on the holiday spirit!

Fraser Fir smells so fresh and woodsy, you may just forget your Christmas tree is plastic! Seriously though, if you opt for a faux christmas tree and light this bad boy up, I don’t think anyone would know the difference! I really like this scent and will definitely be using it when my holiday guests arrive!

The Peppermint Bark scent smells good enough to eat (it’s all natural, so I guess you could if you really wanted to?) It is sweet and minty and perfect to wake up your senses!

Cinnamon Clove has that signature holiday cinnamon scent with some woodsy notes… I know what I’ll be burning on Xmas Eve!

The Bottom Line

MintSupplyCo. makes high quality, vegan candles that are healthy and smell absolutely fabulous! They are long lasting and I love the fact that they are made with essential oils instead of synthetic fragrances that are terrible for you! The candles come in a sleek, frosted glass jar with black and white labels so it will easily match any decor.

I highly recommend these candles to anyone and everyone on your shopping list (or just get one for yourself!). They’re perfect gifts for teachers, neighbors, hostess gifts… or for people with smelly houses (ha!). Go check out all of the products available in their Etsy shop!

Thank you, MintSupplyCo., for sending me these candles to review!

My Favorite Indulgence – World Class Granola That Tastes Like Dessert!

Company: My Favorite Indulgence


Chocolate Mocha Granola

Pumpkin Spiced Granola

Maple Cinnamon Granola

Classic Almond Granola


Is your morning routine missing a little something? Toast and coffee not cutting it anymore? Try My Favorite Indulgence World Class Granola! (How’d you like my infomercial impression?) These granolas are vegan and made with natural, non-GMO ingredients. There’s nothing on the labels that you won’t be able to pronounce and the flavors are incredible! Alright, let’s jump right in!

First up, is the Chocolate Mocha Granola. I love chocolate. I love coffee. I love granola. So obviously I had high hopes for this one! I was not let down! The sweet, cocoa flavor along with the crunchiness of the oats and almonds really can’t be beat! There is even a hint of cinnamon which really amps up the flavor. I paired this with almond milk and it was like eating a dessert for breakfast. I’m in love!

Next, is the Pumpkin Spiced Granola. As far as I’m concerned, Pumpkin Spiced flavored foods should be eaten year round! Some “pumpkin” flavored foods taste artificial and not very appetizing. This granola, on the other hand, is done right! It contains actually pumpkin which is the primary flavor of this granola, along with pure maple syrup, dried cranberries, almonds, and pumpkin seeds. It is subtly sweet, crunchy and tastes like pumpkin pie. It’s pumpkin perfection!

The Maple Cinnamon Granola (listed on their website as “Nut-Free Granola) is phenomenal! The sweetness from the pure maple syrup with the pleasant bitterness of the cinnamon and the crunch of the oats; this granola does not disappoint! This flavor is nut-free and perfect for someone that isn’t into “dessert” flavors like the ones above or just prefers simpler flavor profiles.

Last but not least is the Classic Almond Granola (listed on their website as “Granola With Nuts”). If you’re a traditional granola lover, this is for you! This variety contains almonds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds. I’ve never had granola with all three, so I was interested to try this! Just because it is “Classic” doesn’t mean it’s boring! The blend of maple syrup, brown sugar, and vanilla along with the oats, nuts, and seeds is truly delicious!

The Bottom Line

These granolas from My Favorite Indulgence are fantastic. They’re vegan, healthy and oh-so-delicious! All of the flavors are non-GMO and make a satisfying meal or snack.  I love each and every flavor and actually couldn’t pick a favorite! I love that they come in a large 10 oz. size for home and also come in 2 oz. snack sizes to take on the go! Head on over to the My Favorite Indulgence website to check out their world-class granola!

Thank you, My Favorite Indulgence, for sending me these products to review!



Corkor’s Gorgeous Cork Bags… Perfect for the Eco-Fashionista on Your Holiday Shopping List!

Company: Corkor


Corkor’s Goals:

“Sustainability is one of the biggest issues of our times. It touches many aspects of our lives, right down to the materials we choose to buy. In these defining times where our choices can and will define the future of the planet, cork stands out as the number one eco–friendly raw material.

At Corkor, we feel we can truly make a difference by providing people with a premium, eco–friendly alternative to other highly polluting products. Cork is good for the environment in more than one way: recyclable, reusable and sustainable, cork is also a high–end alternative to leather. Beautiful, sustainable and vegan accessories are our contribution to a better, greener world.”

Why Cork?

“The extraction of cork also maintains the vitality of the “Montado” habitat and promotes multiple economic, environmental and social gains, allowing for thousands of people to go on living and working in otherwise deserted areas of Portugal.”

waterproof, buoyant, elastic, fire resistant and unique in its appearance, it is a naturally harvested material, mainly originating in the cork oak forests located in the Iberian Peninsula (Portugal and Spain).”

Product: Cork Clutch Natural


Every girl needs a good clutch for nights out or days that you don’t want to carry around a huge bag. That’s why I am so excited to share Corkor’s Cork Clutch Natural with you! If this is your first time to my website (welcome!), you must know that my style is quite casual and based on comfortable, multi-purpose pieces with a rock and roll flair! Of course, my main interest is vegan, cruelty-free fashion!

IMG_1412.jpgOk, let’s start with the basics! The dimensions of this clutch are 7.5″ long x 4.7″ wide x 2″ inches deep, so it is roomy enough to fit all of your essentials like your phone, wallet, and other necessities. This bag is made of smooth, durable cork from Portugal (yes, the same stuff that tops your favorite wine bottle) that is water-resistant and super high quality.

The neutral color will match everything in your wardrobe which I truly appreciate because I seriously don’t have time to think about what bag matches my outfits on a daily basis!

I love that the natural cork gives it an earthy, eco-vibe while the super shiny, silver metal hardware gives it a classy and slightly edgy look (my fav!). This clutch easily transitions from a fun, daytime over the shoulder or crossbody bag to a sophisticated nighttime accessory, simply by removing the chain. I love multi-use products!

The Bottom Line

I adore this clutch! I love how it easily adds style to any outfit and is perfect for a casual trip to Whole Foods or for a night out! It truly is a special bag and you can count on people asking you about it when you wear it!

Using a sustainable material like cork is a genius idea! It just goes to show that leather and other animal products are not necessary to look fabulous! This clutch is sure to please anyone and everyone on your holiday shopping list!

Thank you, Corkor, for sending me this stunning clutch to review!


Eat Your Coffee Bars… Delicious Vegan Bars with a Caffeine Kick!

Company: Newgroundsfood.com


Mocha Latte Coffee Bar

Coconut Mocha Coffee Bar

Caramel Macchiato Coffee Bar


Calling all coffee addicts… there’s a new kid in town! Eat Your Coffee Bars contain a cup of coffee in each bar! They’re vegan, organic, gluten-free, non-GMO, and made with fair trade coffee!

When it comes to coffee, I’m slightly (and by “slightly” I mean VERY) picky. It needs to be smooth, not too bitter, and of course, it better wake me up!

I recently started a new job that requires me to wake up incredibly early and commute about 40 minutes to get there. So, even making coffee before I leave can throw off my schedule and make me late. That’s why I am so happy to have found these Eat Your Coffee Bars! I don’t need to make my coffee, I just eat a bar!

The Mocha Latte Coffee Bar is made with dates, gluten-free oats, almond butter, and dark chocolate. It is chewy, sweet, and full of chocolate-y coffee flavor. The dark chocolate chips really amp up the mocha flavor and cashews give it some crunch, making this a seriously delicious pick me up!

The Caramel Macchiato Coffee Bar actually tastes like a fancy drink that would cost you around $7.00 at Starbucks! The sweetness of the dates and the subtle bitterness of the coffee are in perfect balance. Yum!

The Coconut Mocha CoffeeBar is my favorite! It is chewy like the others and has a sweet coconut flavor that is absolutely mouthwatering. It also has brown rice and quinoa  to make it crunchy and satisfying. The combo of coconut, dark chocolate, and coffee really can’t be beat!

The Bottom Line

Eat Your Coffee Bars are delicious, good for you and will actually wake your a$$ up! Whether you’re a coffee addict (like myself) or just want a healthy, easy way to get energized, these bars are for you! To make things even better, this company is part of The Chain Collaborative, a non-profit that supports coffee producers in Nicaragua and Guatemala. Awesome!

Thank you, Eat Your Coffee, for sending me these fantastic bars to review! I highly recommend them!


True Moringa Face, Hair, and Body Oil Review… a Multi-Purpose Product with a Mission!

Company: True Moringa

The Moringa Tree is also known as “The Miracle Tree” due to its ability to thrive with very little water and its nutritionally dense leaves. 100% cold-pressed Moringa oil that is ethically cultivated by small farming families in Ghana is the basis of True Moringa products. Moringa oil hydrates the skin, nourishes with antioxidants, restores tones and texture, soothes redness and damage, as well as minimizes signs of premature aging!

Best of all, with every purchase made through TrueMoringa.com, a Moringa tree is planted in your name which will help provide food security and sustainable income for small farming families in Ghana.

How AWESOME IS THAT!? Read more about their amazing story here!

Product: True Moringa Refresh Face, Hair & Body Oil

Review: You know who loves a great, multi-purpose product?! THIS GIRL DOES!

True Moringa’s 100% vegan oil can be used on your face, hair and body! The “Refresh” variety contains peppermint oil which gives it a nice, fresh minty scent that I really enjoyed.

I used 1 pump of this oil on my face in the morning for a dose of moisture. It works into the skin easily and leaves a silky finish on the skin. My makeup applied easily on top of it and my skin looked healthy and hydrated without looking greasy. I also used this on my insanely dry chapped lips and it really helped to heal them!

I also used this on my damp hair to eliminate frizz and on my dry hair to smooth fly aways. This product did a great job keeping my frizzy curls under control and left my locks smelling minty fresh!

I also used this as an all over moisturizer and it definitely helped to soften my super dry hands and elbows that were peeling and cracking (which they always seem to do now that the colder weather is starting to show up). With just a few applications, my hands and elbows were moisturized, less red and irritated, and overall the condition of my poor skin was drastically improved!

The Bottom Line
