That glorious time of year has arrived! That's right, it's time for the Spring Sephora VIB Sale!!! From now (April 16th) through April 21st, VIB and VIB Rouge members receive 15% off all purchases made with the appropriate code (should have been mailed by now - for Rouge members, it is "ROUGELOVE"). If you are a BI member, you will receive 10% off beginning Friday, April 17th. One of my favorite things about these sales from Sephora is that you can use the code as many times as you like - both online and in store. It's fantastic because I don't feel the pressure to remember everything at once, and I don't kick myself if I hear about something amazing the next day. Since there are plenty of cruelty free items from brands that I love available at Sephora, I thought I would share my Top 10 Recommendations with you today.

I had planned to post another Spring-themed something today, but clearly I’ve gone a different direction. J Instead, I thought I would tell you about some Skin Care Game Changers that I’ve discovered! These products have made a significant, and quick, difference in the texture and condition of my skin. I do not have anywhere near good skin, so any improvement is highly welcome. These little miracle workers are the Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment with 5% AHA and the Resist 25% Vitamin C Spot Treatment, as well as the Shea Terra Organics Rose Hips & Carrot Perfecting Serum. Of course these are all cruelty free, but I believe they are also all vegan! I’ve been using these together for at least a few months now, so I feel I can share – no, need to share – my experience with you!

The birds are chirping, the sun is peeking out from behind the clouds and bright green buds are popping up all around. That can only mean one thing – Spring is finally here! I absolutely love Spring and probably one of my favorite things to do in the Springtime is to bust out all of the fun colored nail polishes I have…and trying to resist buying more. J So I’ve dusted off my polishes and spent hours whittling down my favs (literally) so that I can share my Top 10 Spring Polishes with you this year! J (And please excuse my rough nails and somewhat messy painting job.)

Cruelty Free March Favs 2015 - ColourPop, Shea Terra, Urban Decay, Acure, Wet n Wild, Waxelene & Paula's Choice
I cannot believe it’s the end of March! (Obligatory blogger opening sentence completed. Hehe!) It is finally starting to look a bit like Spring, which makes me so so happy – Spring is probably my favorite season. J It’s been an odd month all around, so I think I’m glad to see it pass…then again, every time I say something like that, the following month is even stranger. J Vague update completed and blogger favorites requirement list all checked off. J Seriously though, the sun is shining, daylight is lasting longer, it’s almost getting warmer…just barely, and my mood is improving. Spring is officially on it’s way!!! Well, it’s technically here, but it’s finally starting to feel like it. And clearly I am having trouble staying on topic, which is another sure sign that spring fever is setting in! J So, getting back to the topic at hand, let’s talk about my favorite products from the month of March!!!

This past week, Whole Foods highlighted their beauty department with various events that culminated with the availability of a beauty bag! Not being one to pass up samples-that-I-paid-for-but-convinced-myself-they’re-free kinda deal, I thought I’d check out what the bag had in store. Since the bags were supposed to be available on Saturday only, it doesn’t make sense to talk a lot about the bag itself, but I thought I would share some of my own Favorite Beauty Brands that are available at Whole Foods…at least my local Whole Foods! I’m sure there is some variation from store to store, but I feel these brands are pretty universal. All beauty products sold at Whole Foods are cruelty free (though not necessarily vegan) and are free from over 50 questionable common ingredients. So, if you’re browsing the aisles of Whole Foods and decide to do some ethical and good-for-you beauty shopping, here are some of my favorite brands worth checking out (plus a peak into the Beauty Bag at the end)!

I don't usually do hauls on the blog, but I figured since I recently ordered and received these items from Pacifica, I would share some mini reviews. I am always curious to get others' opinions about how these fragrances smell, but rarely find much info about them online. Though there is a small selection available at Target and Ulta, I don't see many of the scents in stores. Since I can now smell a few more for myself, I thought I'd share my thoughts. Let’s dive in to the gorgeous box that contained (almost) everything and get to sniffing! J
