Paris Fashion Week just wrapped up and I noticed a few trends that we can look forward to this summer are ya ready? Qui!
March is the perfect time of year to stay indoors and pamper yourself. Pour yourself a delicious raw-tella hot chocolate, put on your goop-approved knit sweater and get your hygge on.

Today, I have great news. The fabulous Margot over at thechoosychick.com has the solution to your (possible) green beauty conundrum. How do I transition? It’s the hardest part and she has done all the hard work for you. YAY! I caught up with this eco-warrior to get the down-low on her Green Beauty Starter Bag (which BTW would make a fabulous #MotherDay gift!)
