Taking care of my skin has always been a top priority. Growing up I rarely wore makeup and even now, during the week, I focus more on keeping my skin clean vs. putting makeup to cover blemishes. My mother has more recently been stressing about the importance of skincare since she works for Ideal Image and you only have one chance to keep your skin healthy. So, when Mindful Minerals gave me all of these free products during The Makeup Show, I knew it was a great opportunity to update my skincare routine.
*These items were gifted by Mindful Minerals, but as usual all opinions are my own. I have hormonal acne and want to help others find their cure.
Mindful Minerals is not some trendy product, but a ecologically responsible company bringing you products that benefit you from the inside out. They have been making soaps for over 60 years with minerals found from the Jordan dead sea. These products help benefit people dealing with psoriasis, eczema, arthritis, acne, and even rosacea. They are all organic and free of preservatives, or additives. Mindful Minerals is also a USA manufactured company, right in my own Florida backyard.
My favorite Mindful Minerals product that has been really essential in clearing up my hormonal acne is the Dead Sea Mud Bar. I wash my face morning and evening with this cleansing bar and follow up with the Cranberry Toner, which smells so good.
If I feel that I need a bit more coverage in the morning, then I use the BB Cream in Medium Light which has SPF 30 in it. If I am just going bare faced, or going to bed, then I use the "Get Carded" Anti Aging Peptide Serum. This is a three in one product that will replace your moisturizer, eye cream, and anti-aging serum.
Twice a week, I exfoliate and use a mask. This Get Even Exfoliating Cleanser is gentle, yet gets off all the dead skin and cleans out those pores. The Dead Sea Mud Mask is amazing!!! This mask can be used on any part of your body to help revitalize your skin. This Mindful Minerals mask detoxifies the skin removing oils and impurities, stimulates circulation, and tightens pores. It also takes less than 15 minutes!!
They even have a Natural Self Tanner, which I think does a great job without looking streaky. Plus, I love this Travel Essentials Kit, so that I can pack lightly and still take all natural basics with me on my trips!! Mindful Minerals has a very well rounded selection of products and they are so affordable.
I have been using these products for over 30 days now, that way I could give a proper review. I really feel that my acne has majorly cleared up. Now, because it's hormonal, I do still get break outs. However, they are much more rare since I have been using these products and they go away much faster now. I fully stand behind these products and will recommend them to anyone.
If you are looking for an all natural skin care product, then I would definitely go check them out. I would love to hear if you have ever used a product made with dead sea minerals before, or if you have a favorite product for dealing with hormonal acne.
This spring I have been obsessing over two things, rompers and floral. When I saw this jumpsuit from SheIn, I knew it was perfect for many things I had coming up. I first wore it to a family Easter lunch and then to a blogger event to get my babes opinions and it was a total hit!!
All the details combined on this SheIn jumpsuit make it the total package. It has a strappy back for the spring/summer heat, wide legs and the slits up the legs make you look hot to trot!! I wanted to keep the jumpsuit as the focus, so I paired it with simple delicate accessories in rose gold, a pair of nude strappy heels to elongate my legs, and a saddle bag to keep the boho vibes.
5 REASONS I LOVE SHEIN
- Styles - SheIn has a huge selection and they are always keeping up with all the trends. Many times you will find something that looks just like a designer made item at a fraction of the cost!
- Prices - Everything at SheIn is soooo affordable. Why spend tons of money on the trendy items, when trends change.
- Started in the USA - Yes most people think of SheIn as a Chinese company, which they are based in China now. However, it was actually started in Brunswick, NJ by a group of fashion loving individuals.
- Sizing - I am a petite girl and sometimes its hard for me to find clothing! I have really great luck with SheIn because most of their clothing is made for women my size.
- Customer Service - I feel like the people at SheIn are so nice and so helpful. They respond quickly to my emails, give me advice for choosing the right size, and keep me up to date every step of the way with shipping. If something is wrong, they fix it!!
Have you shopped with SheIn before? If you have what has your experience been? I love finding companies I can find super cute items that don't break the bank, which is my financial tip for the week!

Forget the white after labor day rule! White is a year-round color, or at least a spring color, so lets break out those white jeans for spring time.
Do you ever wonder where that "white after labor day rule" came from? I certainly did, so I did a bit of digging and this is what I found. It turns out it was an 1920's high society rule that dictated the upper classes from the lower classes, since they would take trips for the summer and during hot summers would wear light white clothing. Also, because coal was burned during the cooler months and that would stick to white clothing, so you didn't want to look all sooty. So, can you wear white jeans this coming Thursday? Well are you trying to impress some snooty people on the upper east side, shovel a bit of coal, or feel like you must strictly adhere to a set of very old fashion rules, then by all means stow away those white jeans till June. But me...I'm breaking all the rules and also making sure to Scotchgard my pants, since I know I'm bound to spill a thing or two haha.
There are so many ways to style white jeans for spring. I chose to pair mine with my favorite color of all time...PINK! Yup, I'm a girl and I love pink. I also love pretty much every color, so throwing in this pastel shade of blue with the hot pink really paired very nicely together. It's a color combo I wouldn't normally think about pairing, but hey, sometimes that's what you need to do in order to re-work your closet.
Lipstick - Urban Decay Heartless
I kept the look casual with distressed white jeans and my awesome pair of chucks, my Momma got me for my birthday. This pair slips on easily and I never have to worry that my shoe has come untied. Super quick and simple for us busy ladies on the go. I felt so comfy, yet chic for running around the town and linking up with a fellow blogger babe, Lucielle Salomon, who I met earlier this year at the Orlando Makeup Show.
P.S. My tip for keeping white tennies nice and clean, is to clean them every time before you put them away. I use Huggies baby wipes to clean mine; they scrub well and get all the dirt and scuffs off.
Well, this little lady also has a pair of destroyed white jeans!!! Yup, you will see this trend popping up all over this spring. So, head on over to see how Lucielle styled hers in Two Ways to Wear White Ripped Jeans. I wonder if people were thinking, "whats up with these two", as we were meandering around town haha. Blue and white was on both of our minds. I'd love to hear how you style your white jeans if you have a pair, and if you don't I really suggest adding them to your wardrobe. Just make sure to Scotchgard those babies first, you never know what you may sit on!!
