Bliss Spa Fabulous Collection + The Pink Agenda


Hey guys! Thanks for visiting as always. Today I am sharing a fabulous collaboration (pun intended, ha) that I think you should have on your radar. As you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month (if you don’t already know my personal connection with breast cancer, you can read my story here), and as such Bliss Spa is partnering with The Pink Agenda, and they will donate 20% of proceeds from sales from their Fabulous product collection up to $15,000! (pictured above)

I had a chance to try out the full collection thanks to Bliss Spa, and two of my favorites that I would highly recommend, are the Makeup Melt, which is a gel-to-oil makeup cleanser, and the Clog Dissolving Cleansing Milk.  I like to really vet out any products that I recommend here on the blog, and I didn’t have enough time to fully review some of the other products in the collection, but when I do I will share my thoughts with you! For now, here is more on these two products below:

Makeup Melt 

The Makeup Melt product is exactly how it sounds, it goes on as a gel and as you apply to your face, the gel dissolves into a smooth oil, and it removes all of your makeup. This product is awesome for when you are just too lazy to take your makeup off, it is one step and it does the trick. When you are done you simply rinse with water, and follow up with a regular cleanser, if you are up for it, that is. You could just call it a night after the makeup melt, because it is that good. I wiped my skin with a tissue after I used the makeup melt and it was squeaky clean – which really never happens to me with one application of makeup remover. Note: I do put a generous amount of the product on at one time, because I like it to go on super smooth.

Clog Dissolving Cleansing Milk

I was excited to try the cleansing milk face wash because I’ve been having a real issue with clogged pores lately. It may be the increased oil production in my skin due to pregnancy, but whatever it is my skin has been suffering. I loved the gentle exfoliating and light refreshing scent of citrus, and I could see my skin looking refreshed and clean almost immediately. I also tried using as a mask by applying to skin and leaving on for five minutes. It is a great way to give your skin an at-home mini facial, letting the enzymes really slough away any dry dull skin.

The key ingredients and their function:

  1. Bitter orange peel extract: Soothes skin and imparts a delicate citrus scent.
  2.  Prozymex enzymes: Exfoliates, unclogs pores and refines skin. The stabilized encapsulated enzymes release when massaged onto skin.
  3. Sodium hylauronate: Attracts and binds moisture to the skin, scientifically shown to attract 1800-times its weight in water.
  4. Vitamin e: Deeply moisturizes and calms inflammation.

Last week we took a quick trip to escape the snow for some sunshine in Key Largo, Florida☀️ We spent every moment possible outside, Tom and Adam got their Scuba Diver PADI certification (yay!) while Sophia and I spent our days either swimming or drawing marine life and landscapes. This was my first trip after my sister passed last November, and even though I look so happy here, there were so many moments I felt the grief and sadness, as if it happened just yesterday. I am still figuring out how I want to show up in this space, as I have changed so much as a person since the loss. I just don’t feel called to post some of the things I shared before. Maybe that will change someday, or maybe it will just naturally evolve into something new. I think I will take this year to just process it all. (Even the idea of taking an entire year to think through something is a huge shift for my usually hyperactive type A personality) My focus at the moment is just living in the moment with my family and friends, spending time doing things that make me happy and healthy. I hope to share some of that journey here with you ~ thanks for following along ❤️
I had planned to shoot this outfit in collaboration with @lenacoutureofficial right before my dear sister passed away. Saba, the designer, was more than understanding if I didn’t want to anymore - but after thinking on it for a while I decided I wanted to - in my sister’s honor 💗 She was always my biggest hype woman. When i would feel like I’m not good enough or that I should quit (which was often) she would tell me I was unique and great and to keep it up. When I think of my sister, beauty and love is all that she embodied in her being. She expressed that on the outside also - as she loved to wear everything glam, bright & colorful, and full of bling. Hair done, nails done, everything did - that was Nusrat. For this shoot I took the time to get glam after a long hiatus - and makeup and hair took so long because I think I forgot how to do it, but afterwards I was surprised how I felt transformed. When I wore this gorgeous outfit that I know was designed with such love and incredible attention to detail by @lenacoutureofficial, I felt all of that beauty - like a walking piece of art, and very much at peace. Thank you so much to @divmophoto for capturing the feeling so well 💕
Ski weekend with my favorites ❄️❄️ So proud of Sophia for skiing on her own for the first time!
There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

Cozy for a coffee date ☕️
French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!
