Ethical Spotting-Campana by Melissa Shoes

(photos: 1, 2, 3, 4) So what do Anne Hathaway, Blake Lively, Jessica Biel and Carrie Underwood have in common? Obviously the Campana collection by Melissa Shoes!

Ethical Beauty-Petit Vour Box February

So friends, this is my first subscription situation ever, ever, ever! My apprehension to join subscription beauty boxes really comes from not wanting to have a lot of extra beauty things, but since I really only have a couple of “go-to” items.
