As much as I love beauty routines, one area I often overlook is a classic manicure. As a nearly life-long pianist and violinist, I’ve never payed too much attention to my hands or nails, other than to make sure my nails were trimmed short. One thing that has always been a plague for me is dry skin on my hands and around my nails, but recently I’ve come up with a solution that’s helping thanks to a beautiful product from L’Occitane, the sponsor of this blog post.
For years I played around with different lip colors from reds to pinks to berries, trying to discern what shades worked for me. I never felt I had found anything that suited me perfectly until the advent of the rose-brown lip trend a few years back. I tried out a 90s inspired shade and was instantly hooked! Since that day, deep neutral lip shades have become my signature beauty look, and I’ve enjoyed curating a collection of favorites. From mattes to creams and opaque formulas to sheer, today I’m sharing my favorite rose-brown lipsticks. Bonus: they’re all cruelty free, and two are 100% vegan!

Spring is one of my favorite times of year when it comes to the beauty world. I love how fresh everything seems, and the emphasis on light applications, cream products, and soft colors, with a bit of glow. The eco-friendly beauty world has really stepped up its game in the past few years, and I get so excited to see new releases when this time of year hits. For me this spring, it’s all about rosy tones and dewy skin, so today I thought I’d share some products I have my eye on to help me achieve my spring look.
Grab a cup of tea, & let’s talk beauty!
I’m starting out the year here on the blog with a decluttering series! Recently I’ve been learning more about minimizing through various resources, and I’ve felt inspired to try and reduce the clutter in my life. Today we’re starting out with my beauty stash, one of the most cluttered areas of my life. It was full of things I didn’t get value out of, and it felt so good to reduce the number of items in my collection. I filmed the decluttering process for you, so you can get a good idea of how I go through these little decisions.
