It’s summertime and the living is easy

I am leaving for Maine in a few days with Matthew, we will be going for a week to visit my dad (he has an Inn right near the ocean!) I am really excited to get away for awhile and have a vacation with my love. It’s been so long since we had any uninterrupted time together. The last time I was in Maine was two years ago when we last went during the summer and it was one of the best vacations ever. I am really excited to go! I will probably do a video on what beauty items I will be packing to bring along with me!

I have been eating extremely healthy and have started on a new eating and exercise plan after meeting with the lovely Kathie Swift (author of The Inside Tract) at The Ultra Wellness Center the other day and I will be making an entirely separate blog post about that and what I am eating and doing for exercise. I feel really hopeful after meeting with her that not only can my digestion improve over time but also my entire well-being.

I ordered the Tarte What Has Your Makeup Done For You Lately kit on QVC last night. I don’t think it will be arriving until after I get back from vacation but I am really excited to try everything. It was an extremely good deal for everything.

My mom bought me this adorable Betsey Johnson bracelet a few weeks back and I love it so much.

On to some non-toxic beauty products I am loving lately:

My current favorite concealers:

Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer

Jane Iredale Active Light Under Eye Concealer

Korres Quercetin and Oak Antiaging & Antiwrinkle Concealer

I had a at-home spay day yesterday and used all three of these. So good.

Time Balm White Tea Spearmint Aloe Face Mask

DermOrganic Argan Oil Hair Masque

Dead Sea Minerals Pure Body Mud (found this at Marshalls)

Covergirl NatureLuxe Liquid Silk Foundation

This is a really great paraben free drugstore foundation if you are on a budget. I think it gives great coverage and doesn’t irritate my skin at all even thought it has a slight perfume/fruit smell to it. I also love that it has a small amount of SPF so not too much to give a white cast in flash photos. I also of course love it because it does not contain any parabens!

I will try to update while I am in Maine! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

xoxo,

Britanie
