Better Beauty

So as many of you know, I recently became a consultant for Beautycounter! Yay!!!!

Now I'm not someone who eats organic and gluten free and uses natural products...I'm more the candy eater and buy whatever from the drugstore kinda girl...

With that being said I have been using only Beautycounter products for the last 3 months and I can honestly say my skin has never looked better. Yes I still have wrinkles and sun spots because all the products in the world can't erase years of sun damage, but they are minimizing, and my skin is clearer and...and...I can't describe just looks better.

It's funny people make such a point of  giving their family organic milk, and fruits and vegetables, grass fed beef and cage free eggs, because we are so worried about hormones and pesticides but when it comes to skin care and cosmetics it's a free for all...

Did you know that the US has not passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients in personal care products since 1938???  Over the last twenty years the European Union has banned almost 1400 chemicals in personal care products and has restricted the levels of over 250 more products...the United Stated has only partially banned 30...meanwhile here in the US cancer, asthma, infetitlity are all on the rise...due in part to the toxins we are exposes ourselves too.

So it's baby steps for me...and switching to Beautycounter has been my first step to safer beauty and I have loved it every step of the way...I truly do love the products...they feel good...they smell good... they make my skin look good...and best of all they are good for me!

everyone is always asking me what my favorite Beautycounter products are so here is a roundup of everything I have been loving and using everyday!

i have talked about this limited edition lipgloss trio since it was released...if you love a nude gloss you will love this set, but grab it because it won't be around is on sale for $29.40 for 3 are getting 3 for the price of 1!!

ok i use this Tint Skin Hydrating Foundation as a concealer...a little goes a long way
Countercontrol Clear Pore Cleanser...I have this next to my sink and in the shower my skin has never been clearer!
Bare Shimmer Lipgloss is my go to everyday lipgloss... the Cleansing Balm I use this 1x a week as a mask, I slather it on and sleep with it...a little goes a long way, you can also use it as a daily cleanser, use it on dry cuticles it is a multi-tasker (i linked the travel size because it is on the pricey side and a little goes a long way but it does come in the full size too)
Dew Skin Moisturizing Coverage, this is a Best Seller, I love this and use this everyday! If you want full coverage this is NOT for you, this gives you a sheer dewy coverage, I use #2 but almost feel like i could do #3 too...
Countercontrol SOS Acne Spot Treatment a must if you have teens in your house!
Countermatch Eye Rescue Cream I use this day & night
Love this Overnight Resurfacing Peel and it's another Best Seller! It does have a funky smell but you will love the way your skin looks in the morning! (also comes in a travel size and is part of this great set!)
Retractable Foundation Brush the perfect brush to have in your arensal
Another Best Seller the Volumizing this mascara!
I typically wash my face everynight but have these Makeup remover Wipes on hand as back up...another Best Seller!!
This Bronze Glow Illuminating Cream Highlighter for those nights that I want a little more than just my bronzer
Radiant All Over Bronzer in Dune the perfect bronzer for everyday
Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion this is my daily adapts to your skins moisture levels throughout the day
No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil hands down one of my favorite products, I use it day and night...LOVE
and lastly...Countermatch Recovery Sleeping Cream every night...

Effortless Fall Style

This time of the year I am always scrambling to find something to wear to Synagogue for the holidays. This year I bought and returned and bought and returned but just could not find what I was looking for, so I decided to go shopping in my closet

I buy these sweaters from Zara every year, they are a staple in my closet I literally wear them with everything....

I have a small collection of leather and faux leather skirts, they are great to throw on with a turtleneck and boots or a t-shirt and sneakers
I bought my skirt a few years ago from Mango but similar herehere, here & here , all of these under $120

I invested in these boots years ago, they are one of my favorites...similar here, here, here, & here

Sunglasses Celine//Bag Gucci similar here & here (I want this one!!)

My Mom bought me my gold hoops when I was like 17...they are such a classic piece of jewelry and are my go to....similar here & here

When you fill your closets with staples you will always have something to wear...

Workin Day & Night

If you follow me on Facebook I'm sure you have noticed that everyday even several times a day I have been sharing maybe even over sharing lots of different things from a cool gadget on Amazon, a ridiculously expensive pair of 1 legged jeans, or an amazing sweater.
I always said that the reason I started this blog is because, well I kinda talk to my self when going through my emails in the morning, and I wanted to share with you all of the things that I obsess over while scrolling though my emails, like when I saw this Gucci bracelet, I thought to myself yup it's a naughty purchase, but I can totally picture it on my wrist this summer...or when I came across this adorable Old Navy jumpsuit, while I would love to blog about all of these things that is just not realistic so I just love the ability of sharing things with you on Facebook that I come across on a daily. This is not to say that I won't be blogging I will, but not every thing warrants a blog post

Now I just came across these Frame jeans...and I immediately saw these as a blog post, I just love the detail on these jeans but at $250 I know it's an easy purchase for some, but totally unrealistic for many. I get it these jeans are pricey but here is a great way to maximize their wear and balance them out with more affordable pieces,without sacrificing style


Did I totally babble in this post??
