My Favorite Things Giveaway!

Friends, I’ve partnered with Citrine Natural Beauty Bar and am so excited about this specific giveaway because it truly includes my very favorite things.

Citrine has generously offered to provide 2 of the following Glam Bags for 2 lucky winners.

Included in each bag:

Ilia Lip Conditioner in Blossom Lady – this is my go-to, in-my-purse-24-7 lipstick. A beautiful, creamy muted pink that would look good on all skin tones.

Rituel de Fille Creme Blush in Lovesick – Again with the 24/7 – I wear this blush erry damn day. If you’ve seen a photo and thought, “she has such a pretty flush,” it’s this blush. I promise.

2 Beauty Chef Glow Sachets – A super-food beauty blend packed with antioxidants and probiotics.

1 Beauty Dust Moon Juice Sachet – Supple skin and shiny hair. Enough said!

A deluxe sample of the Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser – This is the first thing that goes on my face in the morning. Leaves me fresh-faced and dewy, and it’s a must-have.

Deluxe samples of the Jane Iredale Black Ice Mascara and Lash Conditioner – Put a little bit of the conditioner on your lashes before applying the Black Ice mascara, and your peepers will look gooooood.

This giveaway ends Sunday night, so get to it! See how to enter below.

1. Hey hey hey, I’m taking over my favorite green beauty boutique’s Instagram Stories today! I’ll be dishing all of my favorite skincare and makeup products.

3. Yep. HSP here. 90% of these signs are me.

4. Trump + Lucille Bluth = Hilarious Perfection #imissarresteddevelopment

5. OMG. A hammock for your boobs. Don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

6. If everyone ate beans instead of beef. (The U.S. could almost meet greenhouse-gas emission goals. Wow.) #beans #gas #hehe #hadtogothere

7. I truly hate the phone, but this article made me think.

8. Oooh, this palette is purdy.

9. Wow. A lesson to always speak up in terms of your body and health.

10. The perfect white blouse. (I have it in navy too.)

11. I just realized my kids’ school starts in approximately two weeks. Feeling a little like this.

Happy weekend to you all! I officially have a tween as of today. Absolutely crazy how time flies.

Odds and Ends

1. Let kids eat the food off the floor…it’s good for them.

2. Conference call bingo. Legit.

3. Why do the Irish hate U2? Interesting.

4. I’m afraid this has sold out since publishing this post (sold out in 12 hours last time!), but if it’s available, jump on it.

5. The summer bucket list of a 35-year-old. Hilarious. (And appropriate for a 42-year-old, as well.)

6. This is the last weekend to get $20 off $75 for you AND a friend at my favorite green beauty retailer!

7. After being told her head scarf was inappropriate by her employer, this kick-ass employee takes matters into her own hands. LOVE THIS.

9. This house makes me very, very uncomfortable. Yikes.

10. “Not flossing is like wiping your butt cheeks and not the crack.” Yep. Pretty much. Please floss, people.

11. Is the next big blue-collar job…coding? Possibly.

12. My physician recently recommended this book to me and, of course, I jumped right in. #suchasarahjamesbook

13. Last, but certainly not least, The Sale of All Sales starts today, and you better not delay! #poetandididntevenknowit

Happy Friday to you! We are off on another vacation next week – not sure our annual trip to the mountains a few weeks ago can be topped, but our old friend the ocean hasn’t let us down yet. Hoping you all have a great week ahead.
