How Arbonne has Changed my Life..

I started my business and journey with Arbonne just a couple short months ago and I don’t see myself looking back. It has been such a positive thing for me and everyone else who has been on their Arbonne journey. First and foremost the team and women who surround me are encouraging, positive, and inspiring. It is truly hard to have bad days when you know you have people looking out for you. This was a big thing for me because I live in a town with no friends or family and it gets very lonely.

Second it is so easy! Like I said before I rarely get out of my house and so I don’t get to meet people very often and I am still successful. I have the opportunity to make a paycheck every Tuesday! And Arbonne is a gift, which makes you feel good about what I am sharing. Third the products are second to none and sell themselves. Arbonne is the #1 brand globally for healthy living inside and out. We carry something for everyone. From babies, to older people, men and women alike. Skincare, Nutrition, and makeup. And I’m not just reading statistics, I use everything myself and will never go back. Arbonne is pure, safe, and beneficial so you can feel good about using it. We ban over 2,000 ingredients to provide our clients with the most clean and beneficial products and they work wonders! I’ve seen major weight loss in a healthy way, muscle building, and watched my own skin be clearer than ever! Plus I feel good about using everything while pregnant. I wrote this post because if you are like I was maybe you could use some extra money, or are a stay at home parent who wants something for themselves, or maybe you just want to start clean living and detoxify your life. I am here for you! I started this just to not feel guilty when I get carried away at target and now I am happier and more positive and have goals to grow and get my Mercedes!

Where ever you are in your life let me show you how you can grow something extra! Message me, email me, find me on Instagram (erinrenaemua) or Facebook (Erin Trevathan ) and I would love to share more! Join my team, try the products or both!! There is no downside, I promise! xoxo erin

October Boxycharm 🍂

Hello friends! Who is ready for the holidays? I am so excited and love Halloween but I am even more excited for thanksgiving and Christmas!!! We travel for the holidays and it always makes me excited!

Anywho, what did we think about this months boxycharm? This was a great box but I think I’m getting a little bored with it. Is it just me?? This month I received a Kat Von d liquid lip, makeup removing balm, a Pur cosmetics face palette, an it cosmetic mascara and a lace face mask. All the products were great but I feel so uninspired.

It is definitely worth the money. You get great products but let’s be honest, are we not drowning in liquid lipsticks that are in shades we don’t love? And eyeshadow palettes that are lack luster except when we do happen to get a Pur palette? And me personally I hate getting face masks. I never use them with the exception of this one just so it’s not wasted.

Hopefully next month will inspire me but for now I will be waiting and hopeful. I love my boxycharm posts but I’m not sure they are here to stay!

New Journey – New Business

Hello Friends! I am so excited to share this new adventure I am going on with you. As you probably know I am pregnant and I was doing weekly updates but the past few weeks have been incredibly difficult. Pregnancy is hard!! I have been so insanely sick and can barely eat which makes me super tired. It was gross and boring so I decided not to write about it. But yesterday I took a leap of faith and started my own business.maxresdefault

I had watched a girl on Instagram for a while talk casually about products she was using and loved and after months of consideration and research I decided that it was a journey I was ready for. Being a stay at home mom makes me a little crazy sometimes and sometimes I feel guilty. Its not an easy job but I still felt I should try and contribute to helping make some extra money in our house. So I have joined Arbonne. If you are like me and never heard of this it is because it is still relatively unknown in the US but it should be!Arbonne_1thumb-40ca67f12ddd4a6cbafba50201cae1d4

Arbonne is a science based company who believes in creating botanically based powerful and pure products. These products are the best you can get all while being free of GMO’s, parabens, soy, whey, gluten, animal testing, waste and so much more! I am truly blown away by how amazing this company is and how well the products work.Screen Shot 2018-09-19 at 10.00.26 AM

I of course will continue to keep you updated on what my favorite products are and my healthy, green journey. I wanted to write this post because I truly beleive in the values and products of the company and it needs to be shared!

PLEASE email me, message me, tweet me with any questions regarding nutrition and health which I have my masters degree in or questions about makeup and skincare which I have worked in for the past 10 years! IMG_0409

Boxy Charm (BOXY LUXE) Wild Flower- September 2018

Hello Friends! I have been on a bit of a break because of being so dang sick! This baby is determined to take all my food and all my energy but I definitely got a boost with the arrival of my Boxy Luxe box.

First I want to talk about the launch of Boxy Luxe. It was a bit messy. I think it’s crazy for the company to not think they would have the amount of traffic they did especially with how much they hyped it up. I am beyond grateful I did get thru and received the box. I didn’t think I did at first. It wasn’t until hours later my bestie told me that we did in fact make it on the list!! Talk about an emotional day. Any who lets jump into the goods!

IMG_6607Here she is in all her glory. Let me just say it is so much better in person. I don’t think I have ever been so excited for a box! IMG_6610First up I  received the Park Ave Princess Chisel Palette from tarte. It is stunning and smells like chocolate which is oh so delicious. The shades blend like a dream with amazing pigment and super creaminess. This would also double as a great quick neutral eye palette! MSRP – 45$

Next pictured is the Pretty Vulgar Nightingale Smokey Eyeshadow Palette. This is a very pretty neautral palette in which you can create multiple looks. It has nice pigment and blends well. There are also chocolately colors as well as greys. MSRP – 35$

Lastly pictured is the Girlactik Skin Glow Duo. I was really excited about this at first but I do wish I would have gotten the Laura Gellar blush instead now. This is a cream highlight and just doesn’t pack the punch that I love but I will have to keep playing with it to see if I can change my mind. MSRP – 26$

IMG_6609Next up I received the Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti-wrinkle Booster Serum. I am sooo excited about this serum. I am die hard for the lancome genifique but it is crazy expensive. I am hoping to love this product just as much and maybe have a new favorite serum. Also happy I received the serum instead of the moisturizer because I am currently drowning in moisturizers. lol Juice Beauty is a great all natural, cruelty free brand and I may have to grab more products! MSRP – 80$

Pictured in the middle is the Sol De Janeiro Ipanema Sunset Glow Oil. This of course smells so amazing like everything else they make and leaves skin with a very natural glow. I thought it would be over the top but it’s really perfect even if you aren’t super tan like moi. MSRP – 35$

Lastly pictured is the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water in the scent centering citrus. It does smell good and leave the skin refreshed but I’m not sure yet if it does anything as a primer. Further testing will have to be done. MSRP – 32$

IMG_6611Who isn’t excited to get brushes?? I have a ton and I always want more. I honestly wanted to purchase these alamar Ojitos brushes just on how cute they are with that green. Lucky for me I thought they would show up in a boxy charm box eventually, so I waited. They are super soft and apply shadow beautifully but I do prefer a natural hair brush for blending. MSRP – 18$

As for this Luxie 732 Airbrush Foundation Brush… well let’s just talk about luxury! It is so soft and my foundation is blended like a dream. It is pricey but OMG it is so amazing. New favorite for sure! MSRP – 38$IMG_6612Lastly in the box I received R+Co High Dive Moisture Shine Cream. I haven’t tried this out yet so the verdict is out still. But I’m not a huge fan of hair products. I will give it a fair chance tho. MSRP – 16$

I got the Lorac Pro Liquid Lipstick. I’m so obsessed with this true red shade. Nude colors just don’t look great on me and I’m all about bold lips. That makes a statement that I love. MSRP – 19$

Last in the picture is the Vintage Cosmetic Company Dolly Bow Make-up Headband. Perfect for keeping your hair back as you clean your skin, apply makeup, or relax with a face mask. MSRP – 4.99$

Oh and don’t forget that super cute tote! That was unexpected. If you weren’t keeping that is a value of $348.99. That is just amazing and So exciting! Boxycharm slays the game again!

Berber’s Treat Review- Exfoliate and Moisture!

Hello friends! First I want to say I’m sorry for my absence last week. My son is teething his molars, had ear infections in both ears and just wasn’t feeling good so that was where I have been. Things are much better with my little one. Then this weekend I got ate up by mosquitoes. So I have welts all over my legs now, I’m desperately trying everything to get them to go away since I leave for my honeymoon in 5 days! So if you know of anything that will help please leave me comments! Now let’s get to this review. This post may contain affiliate links. I was sent these items for review purpose, all opinions and statements are my own.

I received the Berber’s Treat Black Eucalyptus Gel and the Kessa Exfoliating Glove. I was a little afraid that the combo of these two were going to irritate all the bug bites I previously told you about but I am so extremely surprised. My skin has been left feeling smooth and moisturized and surprisingly not itchy. I love that the Black Eucalyptus Gel is 100% natural, 3 ingredients only!

I have been searching for an awesome exfoliator and I can’t believe how much I love this one. The gel can be used on your face or use it with the mitt to exfoliate your body. Product InformationInstyle-BerbersTreat

And can you believe Kylie Minogue loves it too! You know it’s good when a pop star talks about it as a favorite product in a magazine!

The Ink Gel Eyeliner- Pretty Vulgar Review

Hello friends! How was your weekend? We had a friend stay with us which I always love. I love entertaining!! Any ways, I ordered this gel liner based on recommendations from youtubers. It was raved about and I couldn’t wait to try it out. I have to say I was so disappointed with this product. My overall rating would be a 2 out of 5 stars and lets dive in to why.. IMG_3811

The packaging is stunning. I love how it looks like an old timey ink pot. The copper/gold is beautiful. Gold and black is my favorite combination. The unicarton is also beautiful. The font and script, I love everything about it. And the container makes you feel like you are getting a lot of product.

Next this liner is EXTREMELY pigmented. It is black as it gets which I really like and was surprised but how dark it actually was. A little bit goes a long way which is awesome. I think this liner would really last someone a long time.

Unfortunately there are negatives for me.. As always your experience could be totally different. IMG_3827This was right after applying the liner so it hadn’t smudged yet, but I don’t think this product is for those of us with oily eyelids. After only a couple hours my liner had transferred to my upper lids and the bottom was very smudged and smokey… It wasn’t cute. I hope y’all have different experience with the liner. It claims to be waterproof and last all day but I didn’t get that pleasure.

Lastly it was an expensive liner. At 24$ I want a liner that lasts until I decide to take it off.

Have you tried pretty vulgar liner? What was your experience?

till next time

Homemade Holiday Gifts

There is something about making gifts that is just fun. So whether you are on a budget or just really crafty here are a few ideas for gifts that anyone girly would love!

  1. Body Scrubs. They are so easy to make and not that expensive! Get some small mason jars, coconut oil, granulated sugar or brown sugar. Those two ingredients are the base to any great scrub. I add coffee grounds to the one I make for myself but you can really do anything. The options are endless for the scents you could create!               Screen Shot 2017-09-14 at 12.59.26 PM(Pic from pinterest)
  2. Baked treats!- Whether it be cookies, candies or pies baking is fun and gives the ultimate form of love. I don’t know many people who don’t love a sweet bite of something delicious.

  3. Scarves/hats/blankets- If you know how to knit or sew making things someone can use or wear is always fun. I made lots of burp cloths, paci clips, and bibs for my son and niece so for people with babies these types of things are nice. I can’t knit but i’m sure I could make a blanket!

  4. Lotion- My mom makes a really great lotion that is perfect for dry skin or pregnant bellies. And we have used this recipe and jarred it as gifts at my baby shower. You simply mix baby lotion, vitamin e cream, vaseline and any essential oils you want. If you look back on my old post about diy stretchmark remover you can find a recipe that is amazing!!

Alright Lovelies! That is all for today. Starting off Blogmas in full swing. If you have any ideas of things you want to know or want to see or read let me know in the comments and please come say hi over on instagram or twitter!!
