September Beauty Heroes // SKIN OWL Beauty Drops PM Maqui Berry + Beauty Whip

september 2, 2017 | by: mercedes | filed under: videos, skincare

Today on YouTube, my comprehensive review of the September Beauty Heroes box featuring the Beauty Drops PM Maqui Berry and the Beauty Whip as the sidekick. The whip also features the supercharged fruit antioxidant, maquis berry – in powdered form, along with other skin-calming ingredients like hyaluronic, evening primrose, ย and rosehip. While we’ll all miss the Skin Owl Mangosteen Beauty Drops dearly, there’s a really compelling production ethics story from Skin Owl founder/formulator Annie Tevelin that’s worth listening to.ย 

In other updates, I continue to be so, SO thankful for your support on Patreon. I uploaded a strung-together video of a week’s worth of Instagram stories for all Patrons today, and the aux urnes Patrons just voted on the exclusive video they’d like to see this month. It’s going to be a Bullet Journal spread/preview video. Later this fall I’m going to do a video for YouTube on my thoughts after a full year of Bullet Journaling, but will be largely conceptual and reflective. This video for Patrons will be more visual, more casual, and more process-oriented. So if you’re so inclined, come join!

Lastly, I donated 10% of my first month of Patreon pledges to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts – I split the fund between the Houston Food Bank and the Houston SPCA. Everyone affected continues to be in my thoughts <3

My perpetual striving…again revisited!

september 27, 2016 | by: mercedes | filed under: videos, skincare

Well guys here we are. So many promises (best laid plans, really) to blog REGULARLY and then life inevitably happens. But…here we go again. I’m feeling re-inspired to create unique content on here to supplement YouTube and Instagram. These are the platforms I want to invest in (I’m deleting my Twitter account, was on Snapchat many years ago and no intentions to go back…also no to IG stories). So, I’m going to do my best! Also my new Bullet Journal undertaking means I can create a dedicated space to plan blog posts (more on THAT in September Faves).

So to get back in the swing of things, I’m quite proud of the Beauty Heroes One Year Retrospective Review video I uploaded on Sunday. I looked back over all the boxes I’ve (generously) received and walk through each month, and give a comprehensive assessment of the products that stood out the most to me (as well as the small number that I couldn’t get to work). Watch on YouTube!
