beauty // klurskin

klurskin newDuring our beauty series, we have had the privilege to test out many different beauty products. We have loved pretty much all of them. But, we did have some that we favored over others, and Klurskin is one of them.  Klurskin, is a botanical based beauty company, who believes beautiful skin can be achieved without compromise.  They are 100% non toxic. We LOVE that! Your skin is the most important part of YOU. We also love that their products are made close to us, in Los Angeles.

We tried Klurskins Rose Hips + Calendula Nourishment Serum, Organic Fusion Radiance Oil, and Jojoba & Coconut Gentle Hydrating Cleanser.  WOW! They were all amazing! We mixed the radiance oil and the serum together, for a wonderful morning hydration, before we put on our face cream. The combination was light and felt wonderful on our skin, first thing in the morning. We used the hydrating cleanser at night, and it left our skin feeling clean and free of all of the particles the day leaves.

This is a wonderful company, and we loved their products!  Who doesn’t love a good serum?!

beauty // ursa major

Processed with VSCOcam with a4 preset

I love coming across beauty products that are all natural, and completely new to me. I was told about Ursa Major from a friend. Their products are 98-100% natural, gluten-free, cruelty-free, and vegan.  This is a company that truly wants the best for your skin.

We tried a few different products and liked them all. They left our skin feeling smooth and clean. We loved the handy, toner wipes.  They left our face feeling fresh and clean.  The face wash wasn’t heavy, which is a win win for me.  My skin tends to be touchy and sensitive, so anything heavy is never my friend.

This is a great company! Show them some love, and take a look at all of their goodness. Also, they have some killer men products, for that man in your life.

word(s) for 2014

new year

I love the ending of a year, and the beginning of a new one.  It really makes me pause and reflect on what happened the previous year, and my goals for the coming year.  This year I’m picking a word, or in this case words…  Gratitude and meditation.  Two things that I easily let slip away when life starts to get busy.  If I stay in gratitude, I don’t have any expectations for anything or anyone.  I’m more kind, appreciative, and balanced.  I live one day at a time, and appreciate just breathing.  Meditation, this is something that has taken me years to learn.  Some days it’s guided, others it’s silent. It has never been easy for me, but when I do it, I feel at peace.  It slows me down, and lets me appreciate just being. It keeps my airways fresh, and allows my heart to love more and to be a kinder person.

I’m going to become a mommy this year, and I couldn’t be more excited. Although, I have been warned(not really warned, but talked to), by some very good, honest friends, who are mamma’s, that preparing myself is the most important thing I can do.  I don’t mean by buying all of the necessities, or whatever else, I mean meditating and preparing myself for a life change.  No more me, no more sleep, and no more schedule.  Making sure I’m in a good spot when our little angel arrives.  I’m not sure you can ever be too ready, but having such honest talks, have helped me be prepared.

This past year was a doozy, to say the least.  we went through some major life situations, lost a good friend, and felt a bit of sadness, but overall, God brought us out on top, and we couldn’t be better.  Funny how that works!

So, here is to 2014 and knowing it will bring lots of great changes!

a dreamy backyard

I came across the most amazing backyard in Lonny magazine.  Lake Bell, showcased her backyard for the mag and it’s phenomenal.  I long for the day we have a backyard.  We live in a place where every square inch is built on.  I remember living in Nebraska, where my house had a large backyard and front yard.  I miss that.  There’s something about an open piece of land that feels so freeing, even if it’s a small piece.

I love the decor and ambiance in Bells backyard.  Here are a few of my favorite photos.  Click here to read the whole article.
