Beauty Buzz Trial - Terra Bella Subscription Box

Hey Beauty Bees,

Big beauty brands such as Urban Decay, NYX and Covergirl have a huge place in my heart, but I also love to support local small business as well. Kate Gray, creator of Terra Bella Box, agrees! She created a subscription box to fill the need of beauty products to replace all of the store-bought products on her bathroom shelves that were full of chemicals, that may or may not be tested on animals, and that only serve to profit huge corporations.

Beauty Buzz Trial - Marvin's Corner Handcrafted Food Jewelry

Hey Beauty Bees,

Ever since I was a little girl I loved wearing fun and interesting necklaces. To this day, I still love costume and other types of unique jewelry. 

I recently came across an online shop called Marvin's Corner that makes inedible food jewelry. It offers cute food themed necklaces, earrings, charms and more. The owner, Tiffany, designs and sculpts each handcrafted piece out of polymer clay and other materials. This company is based in a small town in Pennsylvania, USA, but ships domestically for $3.00 (free on purchases $25+) and internationally for $10.

Beauty Buzz Trial - Ipsy Bag October 2015 "Alter Ego"

Beauty Buzz Trial - Ipsy Bag October 2015 "Alter Ego"
Hey Beauty Bees,

While checking the mail the other day, I was surprised to see my Ipsy bag so early in the month. I barely made it into my apartment before I was ripping into the pink mailer and swatching products. This month's theme is "Alter Ego" and I have to admit I was awed by the card that they always include. It really made me think of Halloween as well as reminded me of "Pretty Little Liars", which I am obsessed with.

My Pink Favorites for Breast Cancer Awareness

Hey Beauty Bees,

As most of you know, October is the month of Breast Cancer Awareness. I did a very similar post last year about this where I mentioned the many women in my life who have dealt with or are still dealing with breast cancer which makes this month and the organizations out there to help, very important to me.

Beauty Buzz Trial - Honeybee Gardens

Beauty Buzz Trial - Honeybee Gardens
Hey Beauty Bees,

I have been having so much fun playing around with a new brand of makeup over the past week and today I wanted to do a review on them for you. 

The cosmetics brand that has graced my makeup table is called Honeybee Gardens, which I thought is the perfect name for me to review since we match! This brand was created in 1995 by author and herbalist Melissa J. Buckley. What started as natural personal care products for her family made in her kitchen, blossomed into a profitable enterprise.

Beauty Buzz Trial - Haute Hips

Beauty Buzz Trial - Haute Hips
Hey Beauty Bees,

In my first month of blogging, I wrote about a subject that older generations would find "scandalous" and even some woman now a days feel too self-conscious or embarrassed to mention. I wrote about panties! You can check out that post here - A Not So Awkward Topic...Panties.

Recently, I was in contact with a subscription box called Haute Hips, which offers monthly or yearly subscriptions for underwear! I was super excited to try out a box and share with you what I thought.
