The unpredictability of the weather can make it difficult to switch your seasonal wardrobe, so we’ve come up with some outfit ideas that can take you from winter to spring with ease. See our winter to spring style inspiration below.

Choosing a vegan lifestyle isn’t just about the food that you consume, it’s about so much more, like the clothing you wear, the cleaning products you keep in your home and the everyday beauty products you use. Maybe you’re like me and aren’t vegan but are conscious about trying to be a mindful consumer – looking more into “eco-friendly” options that have sustainability, are cruelty-free and have fair-trade practices. Trying to sort through all of it and finding beauty products that not only are vegan and cruelty-free but actually work can be time consuming. Here’s what I got to help you out with that!

Summer is right around the corner, but if you’re looking to get that sun-kissed look now or on the off-season, check out this self-tanner which comes with a glove and rubs in nice without the streaky look. You glow girl mist by b.tan gives just enough color; recommended use after cleaning your face and neck.

Forget about whitening strips for those chompers, check out pearly girl vegan teeth whitening pen by Tarte. Compared to other whitening kits, it’s so easy, quick for on-the-go use and very well priced.

Rosy cheeks for days you say? Well then you have to check out Wet n Wild’s mega-glo blush – it gives off a dewy fresh look as well as being versatile, meaning that you can use it as an eye shadow and on your lippies too!

Bronzed is best! I love a good bronzer and this NARS Laguna brozing powder came highly recommended for it’s compactness…so toss in a bag and head out for the night. Palladio baked bronzer is sheer feeling with just the right pigment. Both bronzers are perfect consistency leaving a natural glow as opposed to the fake orange tan.

Foundation is a hard code to crack when it comes to getting the correct tone, but word on the street is that Wet n Wild foundation is where it’s at. No “cakey” feeling with long-lasting coverage and you can’t beat the price point.

NYX has some great products like their Epic Wear waterproof eyeliner. The small applicator can give more control when applying. Born to Glow highlighting palette that doubles as eye shadow, blush and highlighter has good pigment and a lovely shimmer!

Conceal-er and carry…these concealers are the ones to get! Beauty Blenders Bounce airbrush liquid whip concealer gives good coverage all while not giving a heavy or dry feel. Wet n Wild mega-last Incognito all day full coverage concealer has good color options to choose from and comes at a great price point.

I personally love a good mascara and sometimes that’s all that I’ll wear! Be sure to check out Thrive liquid lash extensions – it gives the appearance of very long lashes, with a lightweight feel, and is very long-wearing. Lights camera action by Tarte is very buildable and has a nice applicator.

Keeping your skin hydrated is important, so this b.fresh from dull to dewy body serum is where it’s at for skin rejuvenation. The scent alone is amazing with a lightweight feel.

CCTM, CC, BB or whatever variation of the cream you use is one of my fav go-to products because if I am in a time crunch, I can throw some on quickly and head out the door. This E.L.F Camo CC cream is a good one and also has SPF if you’re going to be out in the sun – and a quick tip: a little goes a long way with this one!

Last but certainly not least, lets talk hair! Everyone loves when their hair looks and feels good and for that to happen, you want to hydrate and lock moisture in, repair if damaged and of course, protect. These two products will do all of that for you. Bondbar #7 is a concentrate that increases shine, helps with those pesky flyaways and is a heat protectant. Fast Food leave on conditioner, from what I am told, is the best hair moisturizing conditioner that works magic at helping with split-end mending and nourishes lifeless hair, on top of smelling amazing and leaving a nice texture.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve made 2023 the year of self-care for myself, and these products are right up my alley…mama is going shopping! TTFN!

Kristy: I splurge on this dry shampoo because it smells sooo good and it actually works for my hair. My hair is thin and most dry shampoos leave me with white powdery hair – but not this one, and it gives me a bit of volume which I could always use. 

Kristy: I’m big on hair products that smell good and work well! This hairspray is one of those products! Again, my hair is thin so I don’t need a lot to keep my hair in place, but I also want to be able to take my hair down and not feel like it’s glued to my head. 

Kristy: I absolutely love this spray for keeping my frizz away and making my hair shiny and soft!! I spray at the roots after the shower and comb through, then blow dry and style as usual! One use lasts me about 3 showers! 

Kristy: After I’ve blow dried my hair, I add a little bit of this bonding oil into my palms and rub throughout my hair before flat ironing or curling! 

Faith: I have pretty wavy hair that needs a lot of help in the moisture department. This leave-in conditioner does wonders for my locks – it gives me volume and definition without weighing down my hair!

Krista: I love Verb Products for my hair. I have very thin, fine and frizzy hair, these products are perfect. They don’t weigh my hair down and allow it to have some volume along with controlling the frizz! The best part? They all cost around $20!!

They hairspray holds perfectly without weighing anything down!

I LOVE the dry oil spray. I use it as a finishing spray, or as a spruce-up spray for those dirty hair days! 

The volume dry texture spray helps give that volume, especially when you want to curl or wave your hair! 

I use the ghost oil to protect my hair before blow drying (it has a heat protectant in it) and I use it to finish off with controlling the frizz! 

If you want volume, you need the dry shampoo powder. Not only does it work wonders on dirty hair days, I’ll also add it to fresh clean hair for the extra va-va-voom look! 

Once a week I’ll use the scalp exfoliating treatment. Rub it in your scalp and let it sit for ten minutes…it helps clear out all the buildup, control frizz, and it contains biotin to help hair growth! Don’t forget – good hair starts at the scalp! 

Kristy: **MAJOR SPLURGE ALERT** I’m creeping on 40 and my hormones have been going crazy…and with that so does my hair…it’s been thinning and goes through a lot, so having a good shampoo/conditioner has been a priority of mine. This shampoo has now lasted me about 2 months and still have so much left and it has been working wonders on my hair. It feels healthy, it smells amazing and it’s been falling out less!! There is a nice sampler if you wanted to try it before splurging on the big bottles – it’s what got me hooked!

Crossbody Bag | Booties | Cardigan | Pocket Leggings

This crossbody bag from Tory Burch is the perfect everyday accessory and makes an adorable finishing touch on an outfit with a light sweater, jeans, and booties. Cute, comfy, and completely versatile, these suede booties from Steve Madden are this season’s must-have footwear. They run true to size – Kristy is wearing a size 6.

A cardigan that’s as cozy as a blanket? Yes please! This cardigan from Barefoot Dreams is Kristy’s new wardrobe staple for the fall. She’s so obsessed, she grabbed one in every color! You can never have too many cardigans and this one is definitely a winner. Cardigan is true to size – she is wearing a size small. Pair it with these pocket leggings for an athleisure look you’ll want to live in. Leggings are true to size – Kristy is wearing a size small. Since these are compression leggings, she does recommend sizing up if you’re going for more of a jogger look.

These mules from Steve Madden can be dressed up or dressed down! Wear them with a business casual outfit for work, or pair them with a sweater and dark jeans for a classy look for a fall outing. Kristy is wearing a size 6.5. She normally wears a size 6 but opted for the 1/2 size larger, as they are pointed toe shoes and she wanted to make sure she had enough room…she says the larger size is a perfect fit so she recommends going the 1/2 size up.

Longsleeve Tee | Joggers | Sneakers

This adorable athleisure outfit is a dream come true for our comfy queens. Perfect for those days of running errands as it gets chillier, or for a lazy Sunday afternoon of relaxing at home, this longsleeve tee/joggers/sneakers combo will be your new favorite go-to outfit. Kristy is wearing a size small top, size small joggers, and size 6 sneakers. All items are true to size, and she recommends wearing a tank under the longsleeve top as it’s a little on the sheer side.

These knee-high boots from Vince Camuto are sleek and stylish. Coupled with skinny jeans and a loose sweater, they will quickly spice up a simple outfit. The boots run true to size – Kristy is wearing a size 6.

This knit sweater from Billabong is lightweight and airy, making it great for layering. Wear it with shorts and flip flops on a warm summer afternoon, or with jeans and canvas sneakers on a cool early fall morning. The sweater runs true to size – Kristy is wearing a size small. She does recommend keeping in mind that it’s more of a cropped look, and pretty see-through, so definitely layer it with a tank.

These bralettes from True & Co. are super soft and smooth. Wear during your daily workout for extra comfortable support or under a t-shirt for an invisible and seamless finish.

These Tory Burch earrings are simple and elegant, and add a touch of class to any outfit. Available in multiple finishes, you can choose the style that suits your go-to metal tone for instant sophistication.

How cute are these Vans skate sneakers for toddlers?! Kristy grabbed a pair for her son. The classic and comfortable shoe is definitely kid-approved.

Kristy swears by this Elemis cleansing balm and was hooked from her first use. The smooth, moisturizing balm is a little on the pricier side, but is coming in at a great price during the #NSale so she had to stock up!!

Today is National Clean Beauty Day, and we’re celebrating by bringing you some of the best clean beauty products available. Did you know that your skin is the body’s largest organ and it absorbs up to 60% of what you put on it? Knowing that little fact should make you think twice about the types of products you’re using. So what exactly is clean beauty? In a nutshell, clean beauty products use clean ingredients (meaning non-toxic) and transparent labels (meaning the brand makes an effort to list all product ingredients and label accordingly). A clean beauty product avoids the use of harmful ingredients like parabens, sulfates, silicones, phthalates, and synthetic fragrances. A product doesn’t have to be “organic,” “all-natural,” or “eco” to be considered clean – focus on using products that are formulated without toxic ingredients. It can be confusing, and definitely overwhelming, but we’ve rounded up a great list of clean beauty products so you have somewhere to start.
