giveaway & great greenie interview: with elisa shere




............


ever just need a little pick-me-up?
i wholeheartedly think feeling well about ourselves is an internal kinda thing, but every so often i think there's nothing better then a lovely smile, that perfect skirt we love that helps us feel just lovely, or a pretty pair of earrings to make us feel wonderful, inside and out!

for just such times, i love eco jewelry artist & metalsmith elisa shere's work. handcrafted from 100% recycled, non-mined sterling silver, i just adore elisa's beautiful designs. they're fashion forward, eclectic, romantic, modern, rustic and artistic all in one!

you can see her gallery of work in her lovely shop.
visit her lovely blog.
and follow her on twitter and facebook.

and now... you can WIN a piece of your very own! (read on!)

but first, i asked elisa to share some great green beauty tips!



...............

My green beauty tips by Elisa Shere:

*Use all natural products. There are so many to choose from, by my favorite, earth-friendly products I use are:

-Spa Therapy Works - Velvet Face moisterizer. I LOVE this stuff, makes my skin look all glowy! This shop has tons of all natural items, like scrubs, masks, deoderant and more. Plus, Jussara, the owner of Spa Therapy works is a sweetie.

-Biggs and Featherbelle - I always, always use their soap. They use essential oils for their fragrance and use rich oils, like avocado, to make their soaps. I love their scents and fun packaging. Even my husband is crazy about their products. My favorite scents are: Fixins' Bar, and Barlesque. Also, polka dots make me happy.

-California Baby Sunscreen - Using a good, chemical free sunscreen is the best thing you can do for your beauty routine. The sun isn't kind to our faces.

*Last but not least - Stay hydrated and get your beauty sleep. This may seem pretty basic, but are so essential. I drink filtered water, and try to get my 8 glasses a day. I think it makes a big difference. And sleep, I know it's hard because we are all such busy girls, but you'll look amazing after 8 hours. I promise.
