Ever since I was a child, I loved to make people feel and look beautiful.

Glisten & Glow: Our Favorite Shimmering Lotions and Oils

New season, new skin goals!

Warm weather be coming in hot Cheeky’s! As I’ve been online shopping and working on my new bohemian clothing vibe, I can’t help but notice all sorts of glistening and glowing that is going on, on these clothing websites. It’s always showing this cozy, tan, beachy vibe where the model looks perfectly sun-kissed and glistening after a hard days work! Whether she’s in a casual morning two-piece set or hiking in the amazing meadows that I’ve yet to come across, she is glowing. I can’t help but think, I too will be enjoying my Sunday morning in some flowing white dress all whilst glistening like a bohemian goddess.

This is the year of being crazy fabulous! At least for me. I want to be chic, glowing, put together, effortless, calm, vibrant – I want to wake up every day thinking, ‘This is what I was born for’. With moving, it’s such an exciting time to reinvent yourself, but even if you’re not moving, I love the idea of working towards a look or even a moment of spiritual enlightenment and setting a date before the ‘new you’ shines through. Growing and changing is such a healthy part of life & it’s been truly fun to shop for , mentally prepare myself and just making a commitment that I will be fabulous regardless of what life throws at me. Sure, I could be fabulous now but May 15th is around the corner and I’ve worked so hard the last 6 months to define these healthy changes. If you want to join me on this journey, I’d love to swap ideas. Life is far too short to be dull and one subtle change we can make is to at least have glowing skin for far more excitement.

As you flow around town or frolic on the beach, wear these glistening products and think of me. *M U A H*

Benefits of Shimmering Body Oils & Lotions

Those oils & lotions make it so your skin stays hydrated and protected all while giving off that perfect shine & shimmer. Plus, if you only want that temporary glow, it’ll wash right off when you’re ready. So you probably shouldn’t swim with it or else you’ll potentially have a tinted brown pool of stuff floating around you – and we all know what that could REALLY be….

Oh and one of my favorite things about these products – they work with any skin tone! I personally think men and women could both benefit from these too!
