Muck Boots Giveaway


It's that time of year again, when you have to equip your family with boots to endure the fall and winter seasons. There is no reason for your boots to be dull and boring; in fact, Muck Boots come in bold colorful designs, with a different style to match your family's personalities.

When I shop for boots, I make sure they are waterproof! I have come across countless boots that don't provide enough protection, and my feet are soaked after a long day in the cold and rainy weather. Also make sure your boots will keep your warm, and it doesn't hurt that they look good in doing so! I would suggest you check out The Original Muck Boot Company if you are looking for durable and high quality boots that are built to endure and last.

Where to Buy Peacoats Online

I finally found my online place to get peacoats and jackets! I always have problems with extra-small or small sizes being too big, while the arm sleeve is too long.

Check out some of the coats I've been keeping an eye on this season. I get them from Romwe:

I've had this jacket for 2 months, and it is very warm! This coat has a long collar, that can be buttoned up as shown (acts like a scarf), or you can fold it down for a regular peacoat look.

This coat is my favorite of them all:

The material is lightweight, but keeps you warm. It's a sleek coat that definitely makes you look slimmer and goes well with leggings or slacks. 
Check out the rest of their peacoats and let me know what you think! I may be giving away one of these coats for the holiday season!

Companies Who Don't Test on Animals

Since I've been sharing my favorite companies that make natural beauty and health products, I also wanted to share with you a few that don't test on animals. When I think of animal testing, I think of lipstick and eyeshadows on pigs, perfume sprays on chickens, and lotions on cows.

I never understood why companies resort to animal testing when there are focus groups and people who are willing to sign up to test beauty products. It makes me wonder what exactly is in that product that can potentially be so harmful to us, that they would rather use animals?

Some of my favorite products come from these great companies who don't need to resort to animal testing.
  • Aveda
  • Beecology
  • Boscia
  • Burt's Bees
  • Carol's Daughter
  • Conair
  • E.L.F. Cosmetics
I have sensitive skin, and Aveda products have been effective for me. Their plant based shampoos, conditioners, and lotions are not irritating, especially the rosemary mint line.

I'm surprised to see ELF cosmetics as an animal-free testing company. Their products are incredibly affordable ($1 for eyeliners and lipsticks, yes please!), so the argument from companies testing on animals to keep costs down is not acceptable to me.

What are some of your favorite animal cruelty-free and test-free products or companies? Share them with me and I'll include your comments on my next blog post.

Margot Manhattan Breast Cancer Awareness

A large part of what makes Breast Cancer Awareness month successful are the people who support this cause with their dedication, passion, and conscientious actions. It is worth celebrating when a designer brings creativity to a worthy cause with an image that is now universal with the breast cancer cause.

Have you heard of Margo Manhattan? Margo is the original designer of the pink breast cancer awareness pin, that we all see in many breast cancer campaigns, and even designed the pin for Estee Lauder's Breast Cancer Research Foundation. It is without a doubt that when you see or hear about breast cancer awareness, this pink pin is associated with that awareness.

Margo Manhattan's reputation as a passionate and socially aware designer, puts her passion for philanthropy into her art by bringing social consciousness up a notch with every decade that she continues to bring her designs to life.

Margo Manhattan-BreastCancerAwareness-Relay

Margo's visionary designs to date continue to live on in the jewelry she designs. This month, a portion of all sales will go towards Breast Cancer Research.

Margo Manhattan Pink Ribbon


All proceeds from the sales of the Pink Ribbon will benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation

Margo Manhattan Meridian Bracelet

All proceeds from the sales of the Meridian Bracelet will benefit The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation

We would like you to join us in this Powerful and Beautiful effort to celebrate life by making a Small Change for a more vibrant and healthier living this month. Please remember to complete your regular breast self-exams each month.

Please share the message below with your loved ones and with those for whom you care:

Thank you for reading and if you have a story about breast cancer to share, I would love to hear it!

Also, a big thank you to Margo Manhattan and Celebrate Woman Today for their support of breast cancer.

Romwe's Columbus Day Sale

Starting today, October 8 - 14th, 2013, Romwe will be having a sale up to 74% off.
I blog a lot about Romwe and their clothes. I have a hard time finding clothes that fit me, and Romwe's sizing is always accurate for me. If you're petite with curves, I would definitely recommend you check out some of their clothes, especially their peacoats.

Check out the sale if you want to grab some apparel and accessories for the fall season:

Breast Cancer Awareness Tip #1

We are surrounded by beauty and health products loaded with chemicals that are not good for our health. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I wanted to feature non-toxic and effective products for your well-being.

Phresh Deodrant comes in several fragrances without the harsh chemicals you see in typical deodorants.

The tip for the day is to use an effective deodorant that is natural, as those chemicals are being absorbed into your armpits, and its close proximity to your chest area makes it risky. This is also good to keep in mind if you breastfeed. Remember, everything we apply to the skin gets absorbed!

Check out Phresh Deodorant and Celebrate Woman Today to check out the product and to get their take on natural health.

Win an Amazon Kindle Fire

Kindle Fire Giveaway

Enter to win: A Kindle Fire Giveaway

If it's one thing I have grown accustomed to using everyday, it's my Kindle. I love the portability, lightweight design, and easy access to everything I need, including emails, photos, websites, and best of all, reading!
I love the fact that Amazon has many free e-books, which keeps me occupied during the small amount of free time that I have. I read during my lunch breaks, and while doing chores, so my Kindle definitely comes in handy!

Volcanica Candles Breast Cancer Awareness

There is nothing I love more than a long-lasting handcrafted candle to brighten up my home. Our family has been going through a lot lately, and any chance to make our home more livelier is more than enough to remind me that there brighter days, no matter how many hardships we currently face.

Volcanica Candles is a company that creates handcrafted candles which lasts more than 100 hours. They are in support of Celebrate Woman Today's Breast Cancer Awareness Relay. As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and I love the fact that these pink candles are a great way to celebrate. Part of Volcanica Candles' proceeds during Breast Cancer Awareness will go towards the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Check out Celebrate Woman Today's Volcanica Candle post. You can definitely see the intricate level of craftmanship that goes into each candle. These candles would make great gifts for the holidays, and I would also love to see these candles be given to breast cancer patients and survivors.

Celebration of a Beautiful Life

I wanted to share this story with you. Beauty, make-up, and fashion. 
Those are not words you would normally associate with sickness and cancer. 
You haven't met Talia Joy Castellano if that is the case.

Talia loved to blog about fashion, beauty, and make-up. She had many followers on her Youtube and social media sites. While she was alive, she designed some leggings for Romwe. 
Here is one of her creations:

Romwe will donate $5 to Talia's favorite charity, BASE Camp Children's Cancer Foundation, every time someone purchases a pair of leggings from their site.

You can check out the leggings and more products here: Romwe Fashion
