Fashion Nova Launches Maven Beauty

As I get older and my teens let me more into their world- Fashion Nova is talked about quite a bit in this household. They seem to cover so many areas- similar to what a lifestyle brand does- that this new latest launch makes perfect sense to me. 

Fashion Nova has just entered the beauty space with the launch of Maven Beauty, the affordable, 100% vegan and cruelty-free beauty brand for everyone, where every item is under $20! The first collection of pro-level beauty essentials, called “Basic Beat,” just launched exclusively online at and includes lipsticks, eyeshadows, lashes, liners, brushes and powders ranging from $6-19! 
Fashion Nova celebrity fans include Kylie JennerCardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, who’s very own Fashion Nova line launches Nov. 18. Fashion Nova has always been a brand that celebrates diversity, body positivity, inclusivity and beauty in all forms, so it’s no surprise they are finally releasing their own beauty line, by popular demand, with high-quality formulations in a variety of shades and palettes for everyone. 

Holiday Gift Options: CBD Living

I know it's a bit early to write about Holiday Gifts- yet- if you are anything like me- you like getting things done earlier rather than later. If ever there were a holiday season that necessitated self-care and wellness-related gifts, this is it. Luckily, California-based CBD Living is here to deliver. 

CBD Living topical products are incredibly gift-able. I say this from the heart as quite a few products seen below were kindly gifted to me to sample.

Bath Bombs in five scents (Relaxing Lavender, Soothing Eucalyptus, Zenful Amber Bergamot Refreshing Coconut Lime and seasonal Pumpkin Spice) and Soaps make for the perfect DIY spa day. Give the gift of a massage with CBD Living Massage and Body Oil, followed by CBD Living Lotion. Your favorite fitness enthusiast will love treating their body to CBD Living FreezePatch and Salve. A selection of Bundles makes gift-giving even easier.

I found their products to be soothing to the skin and not too heavily scented. I am quite sensitive to overly scented products but these were just perfect. The CBD Living Massage and Body Oil was a favorite as it gently absorbed into my dry skin within it's first application. Any of their products would make for great gifts as they are available at many different price points. Happy Shopping!

Leonor Greyl : Helps To Keep Platinum Locks Platinum

Something I have done during quarantine is not wash my hair often which in turn is extending the color of my hair. Leonor Greyl has such wonderful products and the one's below are intended to do just that- extend the life of your color. 

As I don't have the products yet, I am taking the cues from one of my closest friends that is in fact a platinum blonde like myself. She has been using color enhancing conditioner Leonor Greyl Soin Repigmentant in Icy Blonde for 2 months now. Plus she washes her hair once a week with Leonor Greyl Shampoo Sublime Mèches for Highlighted Hair color and swears her blonde color has yet not disappeared.  

I cannot wait to update you all on how it works on me as my colorist has just sent me my color to DIY and I have been doing pretty well on my own! The thought of extending the color maintenance in between has me very excited! Stay tuned for my update yet always a fan of the Leonor Greyl brand.

Heathmade Los Angeles Offers Wonderful Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mother's Day is vastly approaching and I would like to introduce you to young entrepreneur Heath Wilson and his brand Heathmade Los Angeles. I really enjoyed reading about his story and the products he has to offer. They make for wonderful Mother's Day gifts or any day of the week, day, month, year, etc. for that matter!


In five years, his apothecary interests transformed into something much bigger—a mission to craft cleansing and soothing skincare products out of simple and plant-based ingredients. Not to mention, they’re so sleekly packaged and effectively formulated that you wouldn't think they came from a kid-owned brand.

A special note from Heath, the founder: Heathmade is donating April product proceeds to No Kid Hungry.

“While I have been fortunate to keep busy during this uncertain time, I recognize many businesses and schools are suffering. After talking it over with my family, I decided to make a donation to No Kid Hungry, a non-profit organization that ensures kids who count on the meals they receive at school, continue to get the food they need to be healthy.”

The Curiously Crafted Gifts for Mother’s Day, from Heathmade Los Angeles

Mom no longer has to worry about moisturizers and hand creams leaking in her purse, or squeezing too much or too little out of bottles or tubes. Have her try the stick formula that glides right on and easily rubs in. Nourish and soothe dry skin with a combination of argan oil, avocado butter, candelilla wax or white beeswax, and essential oils. 

Choose from signature scents: 
  • Aware –  A bright blend of citrusy lemongrass and cool spearmint. 
  • Awaken – Fresh coffee is combined with sweet orange, and creamy vanilla.
  • Devote – Relaxing, bright and clean scents of lavender, citrus, juniper and rosemary.
  • Be True – The woodsy scent of sandalwood and the soft, warmth of vanilla.
  • Relax – Escape the day with the rich, floral aroma of ylang-ylang and the spicy and exotic combination of ginger and orange.

About Heathmade Los Angeles: Heath Wilson’s entrepreneurial journey began at four years old as he attended a week-long potions lab to learn about the healing power of plants, herbs and aromatics. His first sales began at a school fair as he sold hand-crafted, alcohol-free hand sanitizer. He quickly acquired apothecary-like skills crafting products with ingredients such as essential oils, plant butters and other natural ingredients. Heath traded the fair booth for a business venture founding Heathmade. Today the brand carries an array of natural, cruelty-free products including lotion bars, lip balms, deodorant, a healing balm for the face and body, and Heath's signature hand sanitizers.
