Everything will be ok ❀️
It's been a chaotic 3 weeks since I lost my home and everything I own to a fire. When I used to hear stories like this, I thought to myself that I could never imagine being in their position and honestly it still doesn't feel real.
There's been so much emotion and the first week was horrible, I'll admit - the stress was killer. I felt lost, scared and all the while mourning the loss of my dog. It was overwhelming and all I wanted to do was go home to the place where I felt safe, but I couldn't and that was a hard thing to grasp.
But you guys, we survived!
For those wondering, the fire was a freak thing, we still don't know how it started, but are assuming it was electrical. My mother and I left together at 11am and on our way back at 2pm we received the most dreadful phone call, I'll never ever forget that feeling. We then continued to drive home, to nothing. In less then three hours everything was gone, just like that.
It's been non stop getting things sorted, but we've finally settled into a rental. I am now finally feeling like I'm starting to get a footing again. Thankfully, we've had amazing support from family, friends and total strangers. I so appreciate all of your love and prayers, it's meant the world. I have been on the receiving end of such incredible kindness and generosity that has helped to fill my heart again. This community is incredible and so inspiring. There has been so much recent tragedy in this world, and while it didn't feel that way I first, I soon realized just how lucky I was.
The past few years haven't been easy, and this was just an extra blow - initially I wasn't sure how I'd make it through, but I did. If I've learned anything it's that I am so much stronger than I'd thought, time heals and you just gotta keep going.

In memoriam of Fisher Blu. It's so painful to watch this, but I wanted to post something in his honor. He was the happiest little boy, always. I was as happy to see him as he was to see me, and coming home to him was the best part of my day. He was the greatest part of my loss. He was incredibly intelligent, beautiful, manipulative, loving, mischievous, playful, hilarious and he was my best friend. We never spent a day apart and my heart breaks for him. Please send your prayers for him.

Bidding farewell to 2017 like πŸ–•πŸ»
Well, it does feel like a fresh start. The past year I've made some of the best beauty discoveries, although I haven't shared nearly as often as I've wanted. I had to step away a bit, my body and mind demanded me to do so. I'm hoping to share so much more in 2018. I've missed my little space here so much. Wishing you all a blessed new year with love ❀️

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas πŸŽ„

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas πŸŽ„ I feel so spoiled each month when my @theboxwalla Beauty Box arrives, I mean look at Decembers selection! All new brands to me, which I'm so excited to try! First, we have an exquisite face oil from @lepaar.skin (look at that bottle 😍) that is a textural delight which instantly softens the skin, plus the essential oil blend of frankincense, myrrh and vanilla is beyond. Second, the @dafnaskincare Eye Care is formulated with ancient Ayurvedic ingredients and feels so cooling on the skin. Third, we have a seasonally appropriate clean burning candle from @rebelandmercury containing a warming blend of sweet orange, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. As always, #boxwallabeauty knows what's good! Great last minute gift idea too! Link in bio to reserve yours. #greenbeauty #cleanbeauty #subscriptionbox

Sunday snugs & tumeric lattes ✨

The new @rmsbeauty Lipsticks in Brainteaser (left) and Vogue Rose (right). We're talking intense pigment and super creamy texture. Have you tied the new lipstick formula? #rmsbeauty #wildwithdesire

Yes, I'm still here πŸ™‹πŸΌ Was my last post really in October?! I have so much catching up to do and so much to share.
Here's a shot of todays makeup, featuring lots of bronze tones for fall πŸ‚
and glow-enhancing formulas (of course). The @w3llpeople Narcissist has been my everyday go-to (that glow tho) and the reformulated Bio Brightener Invisible Powder is as perfect as a powder can get. Also, the new @rmsbeauty Lip Liner in Daytime Nude is πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Just look at this balm! Its name is Kinu and it's a brand new product from @h_is_for_love making its exclusive debut in the October @theboxwalla Beauty Box! Kinu is the Japanese word for silk, which is perfectly suiting for this decadent balm. It contains a hydrating blend of olive, coconut, jojoba and kalahari melon seed oils, Rosehip CO2 along with a smidgen of mica for a subtle glow. A little goes a long way and it absorbs quickly, leaving my skin looking renewed and feeling so silky smooth. The fragrance is intoxicating, created from an essential oil blend of cedarwood, vanilla, bergamot and clove - it's so delicious and warming that I keep sticking my head in my shirt to sniff myself. I'm obsessed! Also included in this month's box is the Propolis Regenerative Mask and the Rapha Harmonizing Oil. I've tried the Propolis Mask and have been loving it, my skin looks brighter and feel so smooth after use. The Kinu Balm alone retails for $90 and you can purchase this box for $54.95 (link in bio) #theboxwalla #boxwallabeauty #hisforlove

Wearing the new @kosascosmetics Color & Light Creams in Tropic Equinox. The formula is perfection and easily builds in intensity without looking or feeling heavy. In love with them - so curious about the powders are. Happy Saturday friends! #glowgetter

The new Color & Light Blush/highlighter duos from @kosascosmetics are beyond! I was so excited for these to make their debut and picked up Tropical Equinox, which is the *creme* formulation. The texture is crazy creamy and they blend beautifully!! So far the length of wear is proving strong. The finish is dewy and radiant perfection. #kosascosmetics
