Fun Fall Fashion From Bollie Brand And Twice Shy Fun Fall Fashion From Bollie Brand And Twice Shy

Fall is definitely imminent. Where I live, in the southeastern United States, we’ve had a few cool evenings. Just a few. But, definitely cool enough that jeans and a long sleeve shirt felt good when I stepped outdoors.

The weather is more hot than cool still, but we’re getting closer to jeans and jackets, outdoor pit fires, and planning for Halloween and Thanksgiving. And we’re already getting a ton of leaves falling from the trees on our property. So, it’s time to review my closet and see what kind of clothing I have and decide what sort of new items need to be purchased to round out my Fall wardrobe.

Clean Skincare That’s Affordable and Travel-Friendly

My ALCHEMY Skin Care Travel Mini Kit

Finding skincare that’s both travel-friendly and inexpensive is quite the challenge. However, it’s a challenge I’m ready for. While I’m not traveling anytime soon, I am moving. I have to pack everything up and can only use certain products, so it’s the perfect time to test out some travel-size products from My ALCHEMY Skincare.

About My ALCHEMY Skincare

My ALCHEMY Skincare is a cruelty-free and clean skincare brand that wants you to stay as young as you feel using products with healthy aging ingredients. They learned firsthand “the impact of self-care and nutrition on our bodies, both inside and out.” Inspired by cancer, the mother-daughter team had one goal in mind – “to offer every [BODY] knowledge to empower healthy choices as we strive to help you live your best life toxic-free.”

Travel Mini Review

I recently decided to go solely cruelty-free and clean. I don’t believe in animal testing, there’s no need for it, and I will not use brands that still do this. This kit is nice. It truly is. I have crazy sensitive skin, so of course, I was a bit nervous to try everything. My skin reacted nicely. They don’t take up a lot of space on my bathroom skink, you don’t need to use a ton of products, and there are no horrible scents.

This kit is an excellent option if you’re looking to try a new brand, you want to go cruelty-free, or you are doing some traveling soon and want travel-friendly products. While I do like these products and didn’t have any issues, I’d recommend testing them out before you travel. It’s always best to know a product works for you before heading out on vacation.

Overall Thoughts

The price might seem high for a travel kit, but the quality is marvelous and well worth it. I’m always looking for great deals and ways to save money, but when it comes to skincare, I’ll spend the money if it’s amazing. And it is.

Summer Soft Skin: No Beach Necessary

The beach is one of my very favorite places in the world to be. So, it should come as no surprise that when it comes to skin care products I love it when I find a quality line of lotions, bath products, and other personal care choices that not only nourish and care for my skin but also can transport me right down to the water’s edge with a breezy, tropical scent.

Summer Soft Skin: No Beach Necessary - Nubian Heritage Mango Butter Collection
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Nubian Heritage is one of a few favorite brands when it comes to both keeping my skin looking and feeling great, as well as providing a nice variety of scents that I love. Our sense of smell is central to everything we do from preparing delicious meals to recalling nostalgic personal memories to promoting calm and relaxing atmospheric ambiance in our surroundings. It’s no wonder that companies that produce essential oils and diffusers, candles, potpourri, perfume and cologne, air fresheners, etc. are such a big business. We all use these products to invoke a response from within to find peace and calm in our lives.

Down The Rabbit Hole With Alice, Again

Down The Rabbit Hole With Alice, Again--Ever Alice by H.J. Ramsay
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll was one of my favorite books as a kid. I read quite a few classical favorites, from Little Women to Frankenstein to A Tale of Two Cities, and many, many more besides. But there was something about the whimsical fantasy of Wonderland that drew me into those pages again and again.

Summer style is all over the place. Just look around, it’s a hot topic on social media with all the cute clothes and sandals and on travel sites advertising vacation destinations. I’m currently awaiting my next Stitch Fix box with clothing and accessories chosen by a personal stylist. It’ll be here just in time to choose some cute new stuff to take on our beach vacation next month. I’ve been a Stitch Fix customer for over a year and have my shipments set up to come every other month. I love it because I hate shopping and trying on clothes in some dinky fitting room. I love having stuff sent to me to try on in my own home. It’s really exciting! But, I digress…
