I love being different and finding unique pieces of clothing and I’ve recently discovered and branched out to this awesome company that has unique items for the home, UncommonGoods. I love how each item is carefully categorized and has a story about the artist. I know when I’m trying to find the perfect gift for my friends and family, I search forever for that just right gift for people that mean a lot to me. I don’t just want to get something that everybody else has, so UncommonGoods is the perfect destination for something different and it is a huge timesaver. Many of the items can be personalized which add that extra special touch. Is it bad that I also want to buy myself all the gifts?!

Their website is easy to navigate and you can search by price or category. UncommonGoods’ mission is making sustainability a part of every decision they make. Not only are they a green company to the environment, but to their workplace and to the world. They are environmentally friendly and socially responsible which started a branch of their company called B Corporation. B Corporation helps customers understand the impact of their purchases which are handmade, recycled and organic. I feel like this is a dream company, to be honest, and can they be any more green?! Actually, yes! They also are conscious about their paper catalogs and are part of the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) which reduces the amount of paper printed and moving towards everything being online. They’ve also started another program, Better To Give, which donates $1 from each purchase at checkout to your preference of a non-profit organization. Oh yeah, they also donate to the IRC (International Rescue Committee) who’s mission is to aid refugees and families affected by conflict across the globe and this month they are doubling their donations. WOW. So let’s get shopping 🙂

These are my top nine items that I’m obsessed with! I feel like every time I go on the website I find more and more cute things. I wonder what I will find next.

1. Nesting Lotus Bowls // 2. Reclaimed Wood Serving Board // 3. Poetry Match Striker // 4. Personalized Mixtape Doormat // 5. Spinning Spirits Set // 6. Personalized Couple Art // 7. Personalized Anniversary Pushpin USA Map // 8. Intersection of Love Photo Print // 9. Personalized Heart Anniversary Plate

*Thank you UncommonGoods for collaborating with me on this post. As usual, all opinions are my own.

This past month, I was selected to be a judge as part of the LifeStyle Collective’s Summer Beauty Awards and the winners are finally in! It was really fun testing out lots of beauty products and although all the judges’ scores were compiled for the final awards, below are my favorite products.

And the winner is... - 2

This Josie Maran whipped argan oil body butter is by far, the best lotion I have ever used in my life! It’s sooo smooth and it smells heavenly. I don’t ever think I can use another lotion in my life. Take my recommendation and try it for yourself!
And the winner is... - 3My second favorite beauty product is Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara. The black mascara is very bold and doesn’t clump your lashes together. I also really love the blue color if you yourself are feeling a bit bold 😉And the winner is... - 4Surprisingly, my third favorite item is this Medi-Matte Perfected Oil Control Tinted Moisturizer. I really don’t like wearing foundation at all and I basically don’t wear much makeup up in the summer or in general in all, but this tinted moisturizer was refreshingly nice. It really hydrated my skin and at the same time made me a little tanner while not feeling heavy on my face at all. The medium color and the SPF 20 sure make this a sun-free friendly product.And the winner is... - 1Last, but not least, in my top four list is this Unwash hydrating hair masque. It’s a great mask to repair summer damaged hair within minutes. I use this about once a week to give my hair an extra boost of softness.

Check out the entire list of winners here and let me know if any of the winners are products you already use.

XO!
