Common Brimstone’s Gourmand Collection

Common Brimstone Gourmand Collection

I used to rarely wear perfume, but since I discovered I can smell like cake and other similar things, I’ve really started collecting indie perfumes. I came across Common Brimstone on Etsy in my search for more yummy smelling goodies. They are located in Cambridge in the UK so it did take a bit longer for my perfume to get to me (about a month after I ordered), but shipping was still quite reasonable at just over $5. Common Brimstone has a variety of scents in both oil and solid perfume

September Sudsy Bath Box

This month’s little box of goodies from The Indie Memory Box is centered around honey, the sticky, sweet goodness that is also wonderful for your skin.  I’ll be honest that I wavered a little bit on getting this box because honey as a fragrance isn’t something I’ve embraced before and I noticed that it looked like there would be only 3 items instead of 4. I’m also a teeny bit put off by some of the ingredients I’ve seen in products so far, but, to be honest, I’ve been relaxing

July Sudsy Box by DelilaSophia

I discovered the Sudsy Bath Box by The Indie Memory Box via Instagram. It’s a neat little box of bath and body treats that you can purchase monthly. It’s not a subscription, so you can choose which months you want to purchase and they donate 10% of the proceeds from each box to a charity. I really love that each month has a theme both in the products you get and the packaging. These are all indie brands (so far) and every product I’ve gotten has been a full size

Beautifully Simple Look No. 1

You all know I love wearable looks and this is a quick, simple, but very pretty example. The tones are pinks with a subtle glow that adds a bit of dimension. Face I started with my Little Barn Apothecary Geranium & White Tea Beauty Mist because my face was a bit dry, but I knew the makeup was going to be indoors only and I would be removing it in a couple hours. Toners (not the astringent kind) and mists like this help soften and rehydrate skin which I’ve found

TLC Skincare Routine

2016_03_02_TLC_skincare

Sometimes I think I’m pretty well adjusted to Michigan weather and then it gets super cold out of seemingly no where leaving my skin feeling really dry, dull, and unhappy. Also, I’m human and as much as I want to keep up with my multi-step routine, sometimes it just doesn’t happen. And here’s where some of my favorite ingredient-conscious TLC skincare products come in to soothe, rehydrate, and protect my skin during times of stress and cold, drying weather. They help to bring my skin back to normal and they

Delightful Duos No. 1: Zabana Essentials + One Love Organics

wpid-20151230_112258.jpg

Today’s Delightful Duo are two products from my Petit Voir boxes: Zabana Essentials Glow Stick in Bare Beauty and One Love Organics Healthy Locks Dry Shampoo Powder. Let me be totally honest, today was dreary and not pretty, and my hair was equally drab looking. But I didn’t have time to wash my hair as that’s at least a three hour ordeal from start to dry enough to go out in the cold weather and I don’t have the powers to fix the weather. So I thought today would be

Delila Sophia's 6 Lip Colors for Fall

Okay, so as much as I like summer, I love fall too and especially this little collection of lip colors I’ve curated for myself for the fall (though I’m sure I’ll be reaching for others, too). Of course I’ve included the expected purples and berries, but I think brick reds and neutrals are great for fall too. I chose these because I think it’s a great range from the darker and bolder to the softer and more neutral. These are also all ingredient-conscious, paraben free, and affordable (under $10).

DelilaSophia Chikyu Brand Review

My favorite products from this brand are the Vita Plus Eye Cream and the Balanced Skin Toner (which was included as a sample with my order), both of which I plan to purchase full sizes of. I tried these two along with the Facial Cleansing Oil, Face Polish Exfoliator, Restoration Overnight Face Cream, and Radiance Skin Booster. Here are my thoughts on each one…
