    Vacation OOTD: Skorts are back!

    Who here has worn a skort? I’m pretty sure this term only has meaning for my fellow 80s-90s babies šŸ˜‰ I mean, I haven’t heard this word in ages!! So, you can imagine my surprise (and elation!) when I saw this skort romper on Loft’s webpage? What better combination than a skirt + shorts? Business on the inside, party on the outside?! OK, that probably doesn’t work at all, but you know what I mean! You look dressy, but can still be active, all in one garment — how much more kid-vacation appropriate can you be? I had to have it and of course, share it, because in addition to…

    Label Reading 101

    Yep, this is a candid picture of me, on my phone, trying to figure out whether or not the latest mascara drop really is as natural as it claims… It’s time to get ahead of the clean- and greenwashing that seems to have taken over the beauty industry. I know I’ve mentioned resources such as the Think Dirty app and Environmental Working Group’sĀ  (EWG) Skin Deep cosmetics database before, but as helpful as these tools are, they aren’t comprehensive. New products keep popping up and it’s not easy to always know if their claims can be trusted or not. This is why I’ve decided it’s time for me to learn…

    Happy 1st Day of Spring! Happy Holi! I’ve been waiting and waiting for a glimmer of sunshine and it’s finally here (for now, at least).

    Clean Beauty: Part 4 – DIY Pregnancy Care Package

    Note: This post was inspired by a dear, expecting friend of mine who I wanted to pamper with some nontoxic goodies! That being said, each of the products I selected for her can be used by anyone, man or woman, expecting or not! Nothing here is “maternity specific”. That’s the true beauty of going clean šŸ˜‰ Of course, if you are pregnant, please be sure to research each of the products and ensure they are approved by your doctor. While Baby Showers are amazing opportunities to bless the expecting couple with all of the gizmos and gadgets they need to prepare themselves for the wonderful chaos of parenthood, I’ve always…

    5 Product Makeup & Spring OOTD

    There’s something about the change of seasons that adds such a level of excitement to getting ready in the morning. I’ve been wishing for Spring and recently, we caught a glimpse of Spring with a 70+ degree day. As the weather gets warmer, I am less and less interested in complicated makeup looks (now watch, I’ll be dying over a cut crease tomorrow, lol!). I love to let my skin shine through and I lean heavily on my most favorite makeup product: cream blush. Honestly, all I need is cream blush and I feel like I can conquer the world. I love to use it as eyeshadow, on the lips…

    Necklace Organization

    If there is one lesson that I’ve learned during this decluttering craze, it’s If you can’t see it, you won’t use it or better yet Out of sight, out of mind. This concept has really shaped the way that I’ve positioned and re-organized all of the items in the areas I’ve Kondo-ed. Although I thought I had organized my closet, all I really did was address my clothes. I didn’t factor in handbags, shoes, my very large collection of empty product boxes (why??) and jewelry: Handbag Declutter: I separated the handbags which I use frequently from the ones that I was no longer interested in. I sold a few at…

    Living for Green!

    As it turns out, I’m not only into green beauty and household products, I’m also literally into green, the color. Green is trending for this Spring season and personally I couldn’t be happier! I needed an injection of color into my mostly neutral wardrobe, so I turned to Loft and their feminine yet versatile offerings. I was very attracted to their dress selection. Each of the options could be dressed up with accessories and shoes for a special occasion or just as easily, throw on a pair of sneakers and jean jacket and it could be a fun casual look. This is 100% my kind of style – adaptable! I…

    Happy New Year, BittaFab Fam! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and enjoyed the last bits of 2018 to the fullest! I know I sure did šŸ™‚ I soaked up family time, became older and wiser šŸ˜‰ , caught up on movies and was generally lazy, in the most satisfying way! Now, I’m re-energized and raring to kick off 2019. My main goal is to continue working towards building this community where we can share products/tips and discuss our interests freely.

    What’s my skin type?

    Generally speaking, people typically fall into one of four skintypes: normal, dry, oily, or combination. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I have dry skin. Over the years, aestheticians have pointed this out to me at facial appointments. I would always respond with a ‘but I moisturize daily…” and it wasn’t until quite recently that I started to actually address this issue. (I’ll be sharing my skincare regimen soon!) But, simply put, that’s how I found out what my skin type is. For those of you who don’t know your skin type and don’t feel like getting a facial just to find out, you are in luck! I came across…

    Winging It

    Nothing says #Glam quite like winged eyeliner. Well…maybe a bold, red lip …but I digress. I’ve never been the one to stick to a particular look, not really because I’m full of creativity, I just tend to get bored easily šŸ˜› I’ve been through all the phases: just lower lash liner, smudgy pencil liner, gel liner and my current obsession, a dramatic winged liquid liner. For all it’s drama, I feel like this look can really work with anything! With or without shadow, formally or casually, heck even with my basic T-shirt and leggings Mom uniform.Ā Ā  Over the years, I’ve tried what I consider a pretty good cross-section of the…
