Fall Fashion Guide

Wooden floor with shirt, makeup, handbag, and acessories

Fall is by far my favorite season. I live for sweaters and all of the Fall colors are breathtaking. Since I love fall fashion so much I have put together a fall fashion guide of my favorites for this season. I hope you find some inspiration for this season.

Fall Fashion Guide: Out on the Town

I am all about this leopard print top from Amazon. It is short-sleeved so you can easily add a sweater to provide additional layers depending on the weather. Pair with your favorite jeans and this hat and you’re set to go out on the town. I added a Chloe inspired bag at a fraction of the cost and these super cute peep-toe booties.

Fall Fashion Guide: Date Night

This is the perfect outfit for date night and it can be mixed and matched as you please. This top is simply gorgeous and I love the look of the black jeans paired with it. Tie in the look with these luxury Frye boots and super cute crossbody handbag. I added these ear crawlers that are elegant but add a statement.

Fall Fashion Guide: Comfy Casual

This is the perfect outfit for hanging out at home or with friends and family. Who doesn’t love a sweater with pockets! I paired the emerald sweater with this distressed jean and super comfy grey fashion sneakers. Add in this adorable scarf and earrings and your set.

Fall Fashion Guide: All about Nails

I have picked out a few of my favorite nail finds for this fall season. As you know I always gravitate toward safer options when available. These polishes are gorgeous and do not disappoint. You can feel good knowing they are safer and can even be shared with your little mini-me.

Fall Fashion Guide: All about Beauty

I recently became a Beautycounter consultant after many years of use. This year for the holidays they have some gorgeous options. It was tough but I chose my three favorites for the fall. This Rosewood lip trio is perfect for all occasions. You can choose from gloss, shear, and color intense lipstick. This color is gorgeous on all skin tones and is a must-have. The Starlight eyeshadows are perfect for a night out. I love that they are highly pigmented and the removable mirror is very handy for quick touchups. These jellies are simply the best! The scents are to die for and they are sweetened with stevia. They are nostalgic and bring back all the feels of growing up in the 90s. As always if you need help purchasing any items please contact me and I would be happy to assist you.

Whats up Wingo

I am excited for the week to begin. It is Halloween week and my little lady is dressing up as Little Red Riding hood. Last year she was Tinkerbell but we didn’t do any actual trick or treating. This year we are excited to participate and I am hoping for good weather.

I purchased some kombucha and water Keifer from Thrive market this past week. I’m excited to get my homemade probiotic making back up and going. Stay tuned as I will be sure to document the progress. What are you all doing this Halloween week?

Why I Became a Beautycounter Consultant

How I found Beautycounter

Here is a little about my journey to becoming an Beautycounter consultant. As many of you know I strive to do the best I can to treat my one and only body well. After finding out that I needed to go gluten free, my eyes were opened up to the fact that gluten is in everything. I went through my makeup bag and realized almost all of it needed to be replaced. I started with my foundation and lip products as these were the most likely to enter into my body. I found many products that were gluten free but unfortunately had a ton of ingredients and their performance was subpar. So I set out on a quest for cleaner alternatives without compromising on performance. In my search, I found a company called Beautycounter.

Why Choose Beautycounter

Beautycounter is a better beauty company that is on a mission to make the safest products with exceptional performance. The beauty industry has very little regulation and most people are not aware of this. The last major law in the beauty industry in the US was passed in 1938. The United States has banned only 30 ingredients while the European Union has banned 1,400. Studies have shown many of the ingredients that are banned by the EU have links to cancer, infertility, skin sensitivity, asthma, and hormone disruption. The mission of Beautycounter is to help educate and get safer products into the hands of everyone. They also focus on sustainability, transparency, and giving back.

Ingredient Selection Process

To provide safer products that work successfully Beautycounter follows a 5 step selection process including the following.

  1. Ban intentionally
  2. Screen rigorously
  3. Source responsibly
  4. Learn constantly
  5. Share transparently

The Never List

The Never List

In selecting the ingredients to use for their products they have created a never list that is made up of approximately 1,500 harmful or questionable ingredients. These ingredients are banned from Beautycounter products. This includes the 1,400 ingredients that are restricted in the European Union but not the United States.

There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today. What is scary is many don’t have any safety data and the Food and Drug Administration does not have the power to remove harmful ingredients from the products we put on our bodies daily.

What is a Certified B coporation

A certified B corporation is one that is different than the traditional corporate structure. Beautycounter considers people, the planet, and profits. They use the power of business to help solve social and environmental problems by voluntarily meeting standards of transparency, accountability, and performance. This is a huge accomplishment for this company and is not a easy one to obtain. In order to learn more about B corps check out this webpage.

Why become a Beautycounter consultant

I never thought that I would be selling beauty products. It was not an easy decision but after years of faithfully using their products, I decided that I wanted to become a Beautycounter consultant. The main reason is that I want to share these amazing products with you all! Beautycounter and their mission deserve to be heard and you and your family deserve better! I am especially talking to young women with kiddos and those with chronic illnesses. We live in a very toxic world and every small change we make adds up to a huge impact on our overall health. I love knowing that with Beautycounter and its mission for more regulation by ALL companies, my daughter one day will be able to run in any store grab a lipstick and know its safe.
