Not all candles are created equal. As a candle collector, I've had my encounters with some, lets just say, not so great ones. When I come across a candle that is visually beautiful, smells delicious, and burns evenly, I must tell all. I love this specific theme of candles called the Tidepool collection. Crafted of hand blown, frosted glass with embedded sea stones, these Northern Lights Candles exude a laid back beach vibe. The light that these candles produce is wonderful for setting the mood for an outdoor party or a soothing bubble bath. Their clean, nautical fragrance stimulates the senses and relaxes the mind and body. Once the candle wax is burned up, try putting a tea candle inside to continue enjoying its beauty.

My Splendid Living is celebrating Beauty Counter today, they deserve to Sparkle & Shine and here's why. Beauty Counter is a health conscious, organic cosmetic company that educates consumers about the ingredients used in the cosmetic industry. I was recently introduced to this company by a Beauty Counter consultant Ashley Smiley, who not only gave me some great information but allowed me to try their products! Beauty Counter uses all natural and safe ingredients, while a majority of cosmetic companies do not. In addition to being safe, the products are amazing! Many of their lotions and topicals feel light weight and hydrating, like my face just drank a green juice! My favorite products include the Vibrant Eye Perfector, Tint Foundation, Eyeliner, Scarlet True Red Lips, Orange Mimosa lotion, and Organic Sunscreen.

The Beauty Counter website provides tons of information about the safety of ingredients in our everyday beauty products, which I found very shocking. Did you know the United States has not banned toxic ingredients found in beauty products since the 1930's? Many of these toxins found have been linked to cancer, reproductive issues, and hormone disruption. European countries have banned thousands of toxic ingredients, where the U.S. has only banned 11 since that time. Beauty Counter provides some great resources such as the "NEVER LIST" that lists all hazardous ingredients we should absolutely avoid. I believe we have the right to know all the facts about our everyday products. Our skin is the largest organ on our body, and we put several types of products on it everyday. When it adds up, that could be a lot of toxic (cancer) exposure! At this point, it's up to us consumers to make smart decisions with the information that we can find in order to protect ourselves and children from hazardous material. I think Beauty Counter deserves to be celebrated for creating safe and organic beauty products!!!
It is so refreshing to know that there is a Cosmetic brand that fully discloses all ingredients and has the integrity to only use safe and natural ones. Beauty Counter deserves to be applauded and celebrated for being so informative to us consumers. So with this in mind, I was excited to try out some of Beauty Counter's Organic products and photograph my favorites! For more shopping fun visit Beauty Counter online!

It's Spring and I am busy switching out my winter decor for Burlap lamps and white pillows. I was so excited to have this first image featured at Pottery Barn, so I thought I would share this with you. I love a light and airy feeling room but having those warm earth tones makes it feel cozy and inviting. I'm not entirely finished, I am busy filling frames for a gallery wall above my couch.
Dressing for work everyday can be challenging especially when you are on the go go go!!! Our essential wardrobe items include a comfy cotton skirt that we dressed up with a gold watch, chunky bracelets, and statement necklace.Read More
One of my favorite fall purchases this year is the Prita Midi dress by Dolan from Anthropologie. Not only is it extremely comfortably, it’s effortlessly sexy. Which means I can wear it out on the town with my husband or to work paired with a casual vest.
For a more casual look I chose the green army vest made by Sanctuary because of the easy to use draw string belt and the playfulness of the fit. The vest is versatile and can be paired with many Fall outfits.
