Rainforest At Dawn. Vegan Body Care by Teadora.


Drench Yourself in Sensory Beauty
with these Rainforest Remedies.

In Portuguese, Teadora means Adore You and they show their love through decadent fragrances and textures designed to immerse your senses in rainforest moments. Made in the USA and 100% vegan, these cruelty free luxury body care products are also free from parabens, synthetic fragrances, silicon, gluten and phalates.

Today I present Rainforest At Dawn, a vibrant and lively blended woodsy floral. This is a mellow yet apparent scent which gently dissipates over time. My boyfriend likes it too, so it's safe to say this is a unisex collection.

Lost my Melon, a SuperChic Lacquer.

From my June 2014 +Vegan Cuts Beauty Box, I present +SuperChic Lacquer in Lost My Melon. This 5-Free lacquer has a melony orange base which is concealed by bright pink micro-glitter. I went with 3 coats of nail polish for full opacity but you could easily go with 2 and be satisfied. This lacquer went on smooth and even. It level quick and the micro-glitter was balanced throughout the nail, not concentrated in one place. Lost My Melon dries to a satin finish so I added 1 coat of high-shine top coat to give them that hard lacquer look. This shade is super pretty. The glass bottle is uniquely shaped, like a gem. The brush is comfortable to hold while it grabbed and applied the nail polish smoothly and evenly. I rate Lost My Melon 4 out of 5 stars.

A 60% off Weleda + TJ Maxx Haul

This was a steal! I love looking through the beauty shelves at TJ Maxx for buried treasure. This time I came across +Weleda North America Birch Cellulite Oil. The 3.4oz glass bottle retails for $27.50 and +T.J.Maxx was selling it for $9.99. Did I buy both bottles? Youbetcha. I love to hydrate with oil and I love Weleda so this was a no brainer win win.

A heavier weighted oil with a citrus scent, apply Birch Cellulite Oil to damp skin, massaging in for 2 minutes. The oil works with the massage to lessen the appearance of cellulite. This is what I know: I love the scent and I love how my skin feels when it is hydrated with oil so I love this product. I feel so fortunate that I was able to grab these at a 60% savings! Another reason to love T.J. Maxx!  Are you a Maxxinista, what was you latest and greatest haul? xoxo •Nancy-Lee

Kelly Yum Yum, A MAC + Osbourne Lipstick.

I have to give mad props to +Franci of The Fashion Palate for grabbing an extra Kelly Yum Yum lipstick during the launch so I could write this post! Clearly I love bright pink. Most of my lipsticks and nail polishes are are in the poppy-fuchsia family and of course there is the matter of my hair....

I have several +MAC Cosmetics lipsticks, all offering similar textures with varying finishes so I knew I'd be happy, I didn't know how happy... This shade ROCKS! In fact, I dyed my hair purple to play on Kelly's signature look. Creamy and easy to apply, Kelly Yum Yum is a moderately opaque lipstick with a creamy satin finish. I say satin because there is clearly a sheen on my lips. Plus, I have MAC Mattene lipstick in Rare Exotic and THAT is a matte finish! Back to Kelly...
