My Favorite Vegan Body Lotion by Derma E

My Favorite Vegan Body Lotion by Derma E
Derma E – Cruelty Free and Vegan Body Lotion Review It took me WAY longer than it should to find out that Derma E also had body and hair products in addition to their skincare. Where have I been? I guess busy with other things, but talk about a nice surprise! Derma E makes some fabulous skincare products that I reach for often so exploring their different categories was almost a MUST. Aside from body wash, body lotion is another must for me so trying out Derma E Body Lotion only made sense as the perfect place to start. All Derma E Body Lotions are cruelty free and vegan. They also contain no...

Top Places to Take Instagram Friendly Photos in Edinburgh
Top Places to Take Instagram Friendly Photos in Edinburgh, Scotland My wedding in Scotland is coming up – just about a month and a half to go! I’m so excited so I’ve started researching places to visit while I’m there. For a taste of Scottish history and a vacation experience you won’t soon forget, a visit to Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, will certainly do the trick. This gorgeous old city offers something for everyone, from stunning landscapes, gothic architecture and inviting pubs to Edinburgh Castle and winding cobblestone streets. And if you’re looking to share your experience in Ed...

Lexli – Cruelty Free Skincare for Acne and Anti-Aging

Lexli – Cruelty Free Skincare for Acne and Anti-Aging
Lexli Aloe Vera Based Cruelty Free Skincare for Acne and Anti-Aging Hey bunnies! I’m excited to tell you about a new cruelty free, Leaping Bunny certified skincare brand that I discovered recently. It’s called Lexli and all of the products are based on the healing powers of pharmaceutical grade aloe vera. Many skincare products have aloe as an ingredient, but Lexli uses organic, high grade, impurity-free aloe as a base. That’s an important distinction, because small amounts of aloe aren’t going to be very useful for your skin. You can see that aloe is the first ingredient in these products (s...

Stila Stay All Day – Bold Lipstick Shades for Fall
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick – Bold Lipstick Shades for Fall I don’t know about you Bunnies, but I have Fall Fever! It’s still hot here in Los Angeles, although cooling down a little. But I am ready for horror movies, pumpkin spice everything, cozy sweaters and fireplaces (not that I own one but hey…). I am also thinking about my upcoming October wedding and honeymoon in the UK, and what makeup shades I will be wearing while I’m there. Stila has released some new Stay All Day liquid lipstick shades and they are PERFECT for Fall! The Stay All Day liquid lipstick formula is a creamy matte...

Top 5 Instagram Spots In London
Top 5 Instagram Spots in London I cannot wait for my upcoming wedding (in Edinburgh) and honeymoon in London! As one of the most well-known cities in the world, it’s no surprise to learn that London is one of the most photographed cities, too.

Whether you’re planning a vacation to London or you’re a local on the hunt for the best places to snap a...

What is the Best Neutral Eyeshadow Palette?

What is the Best Neutral Eyeshadow Palette?
Help a Blogger: Brooke from Blushing Noir wants to know, “What is the absolute BEST and AFFORDABLE neutral everyday eyeshadow palette? I’m talking, it covers all the bases… a matte all over lid, perfect transition shade and those work-safe, easy shades we all adore.” Well I’m not sure I have the answer to that one. The closest one I have that I just love is the Tarte Clay Play palette (that I got from a FabFitFun box!). I love the selection of neutral earth tones, and it also comes with matte bronzers (or contours) and highlighters. It’s not a cheap palette, but I have been getting a lot of ...

My Second SculpSure Body Contouring Treatment at LaserXX

My Second SculpSure Body Contouring Treatment at LaserXX
Upper Abdomen SculpSure Treatment at LaserXX – Review Hey bunnies! Recently I told you about the SculpSure body contouring treatments I’ve been doing at LaserXX in preparation for my wedding (t-minus two months to go!). I had my second treatment today, and I wanted to give you an update. The first time, I had my lower abdomen (AKA my lower belly roll – right above my belly button) treated. Today I had my upper abdomen (happy little roll number two) treated. I’ve lost 3 or 4 pounds since my first treatment (and it’s been about two weeks). I haven’t changed anything in terms of diet or exercise...

New Sephora Favorites from Urban Decay, Becca and Hourglass

New Sephora Favorites from Urban Decay, Becca and Hourglass
Question of the Week: Let’s say you won a $100 Sephora gift card. What would you buy? If I won a $100 Sephora gift card, I’d definitely pick up some newly released makeup! I think Sephora is a little weak on skincare and very weak on hair products. But they have some of the best makeup brands. If you’re thinking about doing some shopping, I highly recommend the new Urban Decay Lo-Fi Lip Mousse. It’s a creamy lippie that you can apply straight to your lips with your finger (or a brush if you want to be precise). It comes in eight very wearable shades. You can apply a sheer layer or add on a t...
