_______________________________ This is a very exciting post for me today because it is my very first makeup tutorial! I’ve created beauty videos before but they have always been with a professional makeup artist. Today, I’m bringing you a super easy and quick makeup tutorial using my absolutely favorite makeup brand, Sappho New Paradigm.

Saturday marked the first day of a journey within myself. You’ve joined me on the blog discussing new lifestyle choices like switching my beauty, skincare and cleaning products to organic and natural and taking a more conscious effort to what I wear with choosing brands that have an eco-mandate, etc. Those are all great places to begin your journey to a natural way of living but I decided it was time I take a deeper look into my life and start on the inside. This has to be one of my favourite posts that I’ve written because it is something…
