    Full Face of Clean Beauty

    We started this clean makeup/#cleanstreak back in Feb and I am so excited that I finally have all the components for a full face of clean beauty. Like I back when I was knee deep in decluttering, I never wanted to up and buy makeup in a rushed and haphazard fashion. I wanted to buy things as the need arose and allow ample time for research/reading reviews. Plus, let’s be real, makeup isn’t cheap and the same goes for the nontoxic variety. When I first proposed #cleanstreak (where I challenged myself to only buy clean makeup/skincare products), I adamant that the products I use and incorporate into my daily routine…

    1 Dress, 3 Ways

    If you’ve been an avid, or even a casual, reader of BittaFab you know that I like to style one thing many ways. I’ve done animal print and a body suit so far, and the next installment of fashion inspo comes in the form of a button down dress. Of course, I will be sharing some dresses that I think work great for this type of multi-styling, but it’s always a good idea to shop your closet first. Be on the lookout for a dress that buttons all the way down, this will lead to the most versatility. I personally prefer something with a hint of a sleeve over sleeveless,…

    Style Inspo – Summer Dresses

    Lately I’ve been having a good luck streak when it comes to finding cute and versatile summer dresses and I just had to share! I’m throwing in a skirt and jumpsuit too; something for everyone 😉 As I’ve shared on both here and on my Instagram feed in the past, I’m all about finding multiple ways to style and re-wear one piece. And I especially love those pieces that can go from casual, running around with the kids to fancy, date night with the hubs with minimal effort. I decided to mix it up when sharing these summery dressy pieces with you – don’t mind the silliness 🙂 Can’t take…

    Nighttime Skincare Routine

    Back in February, I posted my morning skincare routine with all intentions of following right up with the nighttime version. However, things didn’t quite work out that way (clearly 😛 ) Between finishing up products (yay!), the change of seasons, and trying to break bad habits (makeup wipes!!), my PM routine was in some sort of limbo. I didn’t want to share my process without having a consistent one for at least 6 weeks, and I’m happy to report, three months later, I got one! Products may change here and there, but the steps remain the same. For the sake of time and filming, I only included my current routine…

    Summer Sales – Loft Haul

    Memorial Day is over, but the Loft sales are still going on! I picked up a few great summer pieces, and they all haven’t come in yet, but I wanted to share before these deals are over! I’ve shared a lot of Loft on this blog and I see myself sharing a lot more in the future. Their style and vibe really matches my lifestyle: casual and comfortable yet classy. Not to mention, their Petite sizing fits me so well! Each image is linked, so you can shop this post directly. This style of shirt, thin with button detail and a tie hem, is so versatile for this time of…

    Clean Haircare

    I’ve been sticking to my #cleanstreak promise and haven’t purchased a ‘non-clean’/’non-green’ beauty or hair product since my major declutter earlier this year. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this – I’m slowly trying to find clean alternatives to the not-so-clean parts of my skincare and beauty routine. Step 1 was decluttering all of my existing products so I know what I have left to use and what I was ready to toss. Now that I can see the contents of my collection daily, I have been making my way through it, using up products and moving on to the next so I can the most of my…

    Indian Wedding GRWM

    Another weekend, another wedding…but this time, Desi style! I’ve already shared some wedding guest inspo for an American-style wedding, so I thought it would be nice if I brought you guys along with me as I got ready for the Sangeet (dance-party/talent show night) before the wedding. I mean, who doesn’t love a little fast-forwarded, makeup application, twirly dress action? 😉 The products I used (in order) are listed below: Smashbox Photo Finish 24 Hour Shadow Primer Urban Decay Double-ended Shadow/Blending Brush Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Palette  Makeup Revolution Renaissance Flick Eyeliner Pen Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer in Tan Sephora Collection PRO Airbrush Detail Brush #57 RMS…

    An Everyday Glam Makeup Look

    If a picture’s worth a thousand words, then a video’s gotta be a novel’s worth! There’s no better way to share my latest favorite makeup look and how I apply each product 🙂 Disclaimer: I’m pretty excited about this everyday sparkly look and while I’m definitely not a makeup artist, I hope that some of my tips are helpful for those looking to amp up their daily look. The video is definitely on the longer side and I happened to film while multiple tractors were running (sorry, lol!), but I genuinely love these products and think they can be flattering for a wide range of skin tones. Products used, in…

    Vacation Glam

    Last week I shared the contents of my travel makeup bag on Instagram Stories (handle ‘bittafab’ – you can check the stories out in my highlights under Makeup) and while I pretty much brought everything but the kitchen sink, I thought it would be helpful to share the makeup that I actual did use and how! During the day when we were swimming, shopping or just lounging, I kept my makeup pretty simple and minimal: Tinted SPF: This was my only base product and although these have limited coverage, they do help to even the complexion a bit. I packed both the Drunk Elephant Umbra Tinte and the Arbonne Soft Focus…

    Beauty Closet Declutter

    If you are like me and derive pure satisfaction out of seeing organized spaces, stay tuned, you’re in for a treat! The Kondo-madness continues in the Bitta household and my latest conquest was the Beauty Closet. Before I shared this area on Instagram, I had no clue what to call this space in my Master Bathroom…Linen Closet/Toiletries Closet. Thanks to you guys, my #BittaFabFam, it’s the Beauty Closet now! This space was always awkward for me, I wasn’t sure how to arrange and display all of the skincare, haircare, and beauty accessories that I keep accumulating (it’s a problem, I know!). The worst is when I go out specifically to…
