Naturally Flavored Water ~

I've always been a lemon in my water girl, but never knew how easy and delicious adding herbs and veggies could be!  It's a nice luxury to have the infused H2O at the spa but why not enjoy it on the daily.  Bright, refreshing and most importantly healthy. 

I'm looking forward to trying these combinations~

Happy Earth Day!

In honor of Earth day, I wanted to share my favorite green beauty products.

These 100% all natural products, are by the award winning RI based company, Farmaesthetics.   I highly recommend the face and body products, they are simply amazing! & How great is the simple glass packaging, love the old school labels!

Some must tries ~

the complexion serum is perfect for damaged skin

Great starter kit, you will fall in love with the lavender lotion!  This is my nighttime ritual.

I adore the flagship boutique in Newport, RI.  Are you a Farmeasthestics fan?  What are your favorite green products?!   

Hope you take a moment to appreciate Earth day. 
 Some reminders of the easy ways we can help,
Plant a tree every year
Bring your own bags to the store,
(& enter to win free groceries at Trader Joes, just for bring your own bag! )
Change to energy efficient bulbs
Turn off the water when brushing your teeth
Walk or bike instead of always driving
Car pool
Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose

It can be the smallest changes that will make a huge difference.

Catching Up~

This was me all last week, drinking my nightly Theraflu drink, hoping to kick my awful head cold.  As I write this, day 6 and I'm still fighting it....Ugh!  I felt the best Saturday, so I was able to enjoyed a walk in the sun, then tackled some small home projects......  
1st on my list, small front door updates-
I purchased this pineapple plaque at an antique mall about a year ago,  talk about procrastination!  It was the wrong green, so I painted the top the same color as my doors, now it works w/ the exterior colors.
Then this bad boy needed some help, how ugly! 
My front door handle was an eye sore,
so I painted it a glossy black and it looks like new! 
Simple improvements, make this girl happy!
I hope you all are well and are enjoying this beautiful spring weather!

Closet Craving

I Love this!
Obsessed with that collar, dress by Devon Baer.

I'm in need of a closet makeover!  I have a closet full of the same old pieces, which I find myself wearing the same few items each week, so boring.  Their is a stylish girl in me that really cares.  I want to look put together everyday but the reality is, when I wake up to the cold, grey mornings~ I feel unmotivated.  You know what I mean?!  I'm determined to change my ways now that it's spring.  I believe when all you have is cute, classic and well made piece to pick from, like this fabulous color block dress, you cant go wrong!
