    What I learned during a year of using exclusively Clean Beauty

    I started #cleanstreak at the end of January 2019 after a major makeup and skincare declutter. For those of you just tuning in, post-declutter I made a goal to only repurchase, pursue and use clean skincare, makeup and haircare products. Side Note: I did continue to use and finish up any viable not-so-clean things I already had <<wastage benefits no one>>, but once I started accumulating amazing, effective clean beauty products, I didn’t find myself missing what I used before (for the most part…I’m getting there). I’ll start off by saying that the beauty industry has changed a lot since I started watching YouTube beauty gurus back in 2008. It’s…

    Battle of the *Clean* Liquid Eyeliners

    By now, I’m sure you all know that I’m a sucker for a liquid winged liner. It’s my daily go-to! So you can imagine how crushed I was when I first started #cleanstreak a year ago and struggled to find a clean eyeliner option, let alone THE perfect liquid liner that I could use on a daily basis. As releases began to trickle out over the course of 2019, I scooped up every option I could and immediately began putting them to the test. Several months later, I am happy to share my thoughts with you guys! Now, before I share my pros/cons for each eye liner, here are my…

    Acne-Fighting, Clean Skincare Routine

    OK – let me start out by saying that I do not suffer from chronic or widespread acne, nor have I visited a skincare professional, nor am I a skincare expert.  Over the past several months, my dry, non-acne prone skin has gone through an uncharacteristic period of oiliness and acne flareups, and I want to share my latest routine for those of you who may be going through the same thing and want to gently resolve these issues with clean skincare. For the record, my skin does present as more combination during the humid summer months, but I would definitely say that the blemishes I’ve been experiencing since earlier…

    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…

    Another weekend, another wedding…but this time, Desi style!
