2. Tea’s this month is Organic Peppermint Tea  by Traditional Medicinal (center photo)

I always love  drinking a peppermint or mint Tea right after my meal. As peppermint Tea  soothes the stomach and digestive system .  It’s also very calming and uplifting specialty when you eat a heavy meal. I really have been enjoy this tea brand as its organic and Non-GMO . But love it as it is a tea created by Herbalist with the thought of wellness from within and out . You can find this tea a Wholefoods  for $4-5 16 tea bags .

3. Fresh Teeth with Kiss My Face  Whitening toothpaste with aloe Vera gel ( right photos)

I am always looking for a better toothpaste that gives me long lasting fresh feeling in my teeth and of course clean teeth 🙂 . And I think I found it. What I been loving about this toothpaste is that it give you a long lasting fresh mint for 4 hour after brushing your teeth. which is pretty impress for me . In addition it makes your  teeth  feel fresh and clean. The fun part about this toothpaste its it green mint color . Its a gel type but its not a mess one it has a good texture and good hold  meaning that the toothpaste is not sliding off your brush 🙂 . which happens to me a lot with other natural tooth paste , then again it could just be me . I also notice that it does whiting my teeth pretty well compared to other toothpaste, so that’s a bonus for me. 🙂   The price is $4.50 to $5 for 3.4 oz. which I find it to be pretty average price . Its free from SLS, Colors, Flavors, Sweeteners, animal ingredients and animal testing.

Not only do they do the job to make great eye looks and blend very well but are also so so SOFT. If you have sensitive eyes You need to try these.

October Favorites

20131023-181702.jpgMy OCTOBER LOVE

Its hard to believe that October is almost over but may the Pumpkin keep on coming ! 🙂

Here is what I been loving this month

1.  APPLE (left side)–  apples are in the season .  Apples are seen at my local farms market by the bunch’s with lines full of different type and shade of color of  apples . It’s like a Apple Rainbow .  I love apples and its benefits to my body are even better as apple are a great sources of  fiber and keeping the munchies under control.

2. Pumpkin Candle(right side) –  I just love the smell of pumpkin it puts me in the moody for fall and love to bring that inside my home . This candle is form Rite Aid for $2 ( right now there is a sale on fall products for 50% off, so you can get it for $1 !!!!!!) . It has a light scent that is not over powering but yet warming.   I like it because its small enough to carry it during traveling . In less words I been carrying  fall with me every where.

3.Argan Oil by Josie Maran  (bottom)-  Argan oil is such a amazing oil . I love it for its light and quick absorbing into skin but has help to heal my dry sensitive acne pore skin. Since using argan oil my skin breaks out less and has even out my skin tone and clear away dark stop. I use Josie Maran 100% argan oil during winter as a moisture for day and night. It is not to light or to heavy, just right for the winter.

4. Cream face wash by PHYT’S (top)  This cream  cleanse is for all skin type and  can be used both as a makeup remover or cleanse your face. Its organic and has ingredients of sweet orange, chamomile, passion flower and ginseng. In less words its smells like heaven. I love to use it now as it moisture my dry skin as I wash it leaving it super soft, smooth and not drying. ( I call it My little France treasure).

5. Lip Balm by Ganache for Lips (center left )This lip balm buts two things together that I just love –chocolate & lip balm.  Best part it is  made with natural ingredients and its taste good.  The one that i have is chocolate hazelnut and taste just like that. It smooths out your lips but the bad thing is that you would be able to stop licking your lips.  🙂

6. Nail Polish  Giovanna By ZOYA (center Right) – I love the color trend of green going on for 2013 . And this color called Giovanna is a beautiful Christmas green  with some shimmer that is highlight/reflected by light. I can’t stop staring at my nails.  Plus ZOYA is free of – FORMALDEHTDE,FORMALDEHYDE RESIN, TOLUENE, DIBUTYL PHTHALATE OR CAMPHOR
