A.M. Routine: Drink Your Citrus

Image

What I’m celebrating today: Happy just about February! This amount of happiness knowing January is about over is pretty much making my heart smile. Spring is that much closer. Ahh…and it’s Friday. Loveliness.

Lately, as you know, I’ve been a bit down and out. Winter has been especially horrid this year for me, but I can’t say I haven’t been a little more pro-active about it. (Although I might have indulged in serious heart-wrentching country music from the 90s lately- that shit isn’t for the faint of heart.) Why is that when we’re down we usually want to jam to songs that are just as sad? Allison Krauss, I’m looking at you. You know, I actually need an answer for that one.

 Anyhow, I used to run pretty avidly, however the past few years have definitely seen a big decline. So, in November before all the NYR’s started rolling out at the gym, I decided to start trekking back to where I used to be. Goal: Run past 15 mins. without looking like a zombie afterwards. Last week I finally(yyy) felt wonderful and happy about having to run. Pro-active score: one check for Laura. Continue reading “A.M. Routine: Drink Your Citrus”

Winter’s Neon + Vanilla Beet Smoothie

Image

Hello loves, here I am. It feels like months and months since I last updated this lovely space of mine. I’d be lying if I said life has been all things sparkle and glitter lately. I’ve been brushed with a lot of emotion on so many different levels. Mainly, I cannot think of any other description besides this; life has been, winter. Since my last ‘mini-post’, writing- really anything- has felt a bit forced. Especially if I’m trying to share a fun post. So I’ve summed it into this: It’s another stage of this bright life, a time and place where we’re supposed to really pay attention to the present. Not document it so much.

Although, I’ll admit, that thought sometimes seems funny to me. Most of our lives almost have to be documented these days, in so many social standards. And I’m just as guilty as any other. Continue reading “Winter’s Neon + Vanilla Beet Smoothie”

Why We Love; Cosmetics That Love Us Back.

Watching this ah-mazzzz-ing video clip (watch, watch, watch!) From Alicia Silverstone’s blog, The Kind Life, pretty much sums up a lot- especially my earlier post, below. Big-name cosmetic companies are getting away with, well, beauty…leaving behind only a pair of (most-likely designer) leather gloves. No fingerprints, no apologies, just cancer-causing chemicals from shampoo to lipstick.

This new line, on the other hand, loves us back: 

Alicia Silverstone’s new line from Juice Beauty. It’s quite enchanting to say the least.

And, if you’re a 90’s child, as I am, do you remember how fabulous Alicia’s lip-colour was in ‘Clueless’, and pretty much always? I think I have secretly been searching for that (gorgeous) specific color for quite a while now. Well, that mystery perfect color is now available for everyone. Alicia, herself, has been working with Juice Beauty and created a divine line for eco-and-natural-conscious ladies everywhere. It has finally hit stores, and it’s pretty much, mystery solved. That dewy-pink (love, love, love) that seems ever-lasting on her lips is now in a whimsical, rose-hued tube. So, with a quick sweep, it was mine, all(lll) mine.

Down to the packaging, it’s completely eco-conscious, made with organic ingredients, and wonderful for your lips. 100% a lip-colour to be swooning over. It’s the perfect shade of that usually hard-to-find ‘natural pink’, and(ddd) just in time for the upcoming Fall and Winter seasons because it’s super-hydrating. Love. Thanks, Alicia.

xoxo.
