Celebrating Summer with Thrive Causemetics Summer Collection

Thrive sent me three limited edition shades of their brilliant eye brightener: Tara, a rose mauve shimmer, Racquel, a soft silver shimmer and Betty, a sky blue shimmer. These colors are inspired by a tropical beach filled with bright skies and a great sunset.

I tried all three colors including blending the Betty and Racquel. I really like how these shades make your eyes pop with color and how long last!

Did you know? Thrive Causemetics products are 100% vegan, cruelty-free and consciously formulated without parabens, phthalates, sulfates and fragrance. #gifted

Spring Gardening Tips from the Big City Gardener

Kick start your spring with these gardening tips from Timothy Hammond, known as the Big City Gardener.

Here’s an excerpt:

Hammond says he wants gardeners to find their why. Why do they want to garden? For food? Fun? A way to relax or connect with nature? He advises new gardeners not to get caught up in what other gardeners can do, especially when looking inspiration on Instagram. Instead, start small.

“Don’t try to plant your entire garden,” he says. “Don’t wake up one day like, ‘Man, I’m going to turn this whole backyard into a garden.’ Just start with one bed, and then allow it to grow with you, as your love for gardening grows.”
