Vegan Lip Gloss from @Armourbeauty

There are a few things in life I just can’t get enough of… Lipgloss is amongst the top 3 for sure. I am so excited to show you the Armour Beauty’s Debut Vegan Lip Gloss!  They have an amazing vanilla/grapefuit scent and is the most opaque gloss ever.  The are really rich with shea butters and natural oils like mango seed, avocado, grape seed. It is not sticky (which I love) and it is 100% vegan, paraben free and gluten free!

Hi Way Star – Brilliant deep purple blue toned shimmer. Wears like a buttery lipstick. Pair with a cat eye and tons of mascara (check!). Named as an homage to the Band Deep Purple. How Rock n Roll!

Funhouse – An awesome dark red that is wearable for crimson kisses. I love this color because it is vampy and mysterious but still a true red gloss.

The Summer Snack Winners Nutiva and Numi Organic Tea

Nothing says summer like a refreshing glass of iced tea. Kick the traditional beverage up a notch with recipes from superfoods brand, Nutiva, and Numi Organic Tea. They’ve combined both Nutiva’s Organic Black and White chia seeds with Numi’s Organic Tea blends for a treat that’s both nutritious and satisfying.

Chia seeds are a rich source of protein, antioxidants, essential omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. These super seeds are also an excellent source of essential minerals such as phosphorous, manganese, calcium, sodium and potassium. Adding chia seeds to your favorite beverage actually helps you feel satiated and is a great way to get your nutrients throughout the day.


Enjoy Nutiva’s new O’Coconut snacks with your iced tea. These snacks are crafted from lightly sweetened organic, fair trade coconut and have only 60 calories each. Enjoy pure coconut with O’Coconut Classic or try O’Coconut Hemp & Chia for additional nutty flavor and the nutritional benefits of Omega-3s. These are amazing and the perfect snack. I got a pack of them and the quickly disappeared from the pantry!
