Caru Skincare Co Rose Facial Serum Review

Caru Skincare Co Rose Facial Serum Review

The Caru Skincare co Rose Facial Serum was included in the Petit Vour November Beauty Box. It was new to me at the time and, being someone who loves both serums and rose skin care, I could not wait to try it. This serum contains rose, geranium, carrot seed, evening primrose, pomegranate, and rosehip oils. It promises to liven up a dull complexion, leave your skin smooth, and decrease visibility of fine lines.

After using up my sample, I ordered the full size product. I wanted to see if the long-term results of using this serum were as great as the week I used the sample size.

New Jewelry Line to Love – Lovely Rustic

New Jewelry Line to Love - Lovely Rustic

There is just something so amazing about a handmade, perfectly natural, organic, and gorgeous piece of stone jewelry. It looks so cute and feels so powerful. I have been wearing crystal jewelry from Lovely Rustic for some time now and I always get so many compliments and so many questions. Lovely Rustic and I have teamed up to bring you this post so that you can learn more about the jewelry company, check out the line, and even score an amazing discount!

Lovely Rustic is an Etsy jewelry store run out of Portland, Oregon by Stephanie. Stephanie makes earrings, rings, necklaces, and bracelets. All of them are so unique and so pretty!

I asked her about what inspired her to start Lovely Rustic.

I knew I wanted to open an Etsy shop and use my desire to express myself creatively as an avenue to start a line of handmade goods that people would love and relate to. It took a few tries before I decided that handmade jewelry was my biggest passion, inspiration,and area of expertise. I am truly dedicated to creating a successful and honest business (I am very particular about verifying the authenticity of the stones I use) based on my passion and I plan on sticking around! It has been an arduous journey, but every happy costumer makes all the work and effort totally worth it.

How’s this for a funny story – we actually went to high school together and lived across the street from each other for a couple of years. After we reconnected on Facebook I saw her posting links to her jewelry and was totally blown away. Everything was so pretty and so unique!! After my first order, I was totally hooked on the line and have ordered other items since.

Kale Quinoa Bowl with Creamy Tofu Dressing

Kale Quinoa Bowl with Creamy Tofu Dressing

I have to confess that I am a serious salad junkie. It is not unheard of for me to have a salad for all three meals of the day. This kale quinoa bowl is a way to change things up from the average salad. You have the goodness of all the greens and veggies, extra vitamins from sweet potato, the protein of quinoa and tofu, the probiotics of kimchi, and a yummy and smoky creamy tofu dressing.

It is the perfect way to get more raw vegetables into your diet without feeling like you need to miss out on a warm and savory meal. I especially love it as a post-workout meal.

Pacifica Persian Rose Body Butter Review

Pacifica Persian Rose Body Butter Review

One of my favorite beauty and skincare brands is Pacifica. I have been a fan of theirs for years! After going cruelty free and vegan with my beauty routine I was overjoyed to find out that all Pacifica products are both cruelty free and vegan as well. Their Persian Rose scent has been my go-to scent for a long time now. Because I love the perfume so much, it was only a matter of time before the Pacifica Persian Rose Body Butter made it into my skincare routine.

Claims: “Our blend of Bulgarian rose, subtle violet, myrrh and delicate fruit is a nod to the floral empire of the Persians, the kings of perfume in the 9th century. Spiritual, elegant and classic. Smell incredible with our nourishing and anti-oxidant rich ingredients.  Our body butter helps fight signs of aging while adding deep moisture and protection.  Made with nature’s best moisturizers – shea butter, almond oil and safflower oil –  Pacifica’s paraben-free Body Butter is a skin must-have.
