Okay, I think I have a bit of a pink problem! I promise this will be the last pink-themed blog post you’ll see (for awhile, anyway!). Today I’m sharing my favourite, romantic pink lipsticks for Valentine’s Day. I’ve been obsessed with pink in all forms lately, but I love pink lips at this time of year — they can be soft and sweet, or totally bold and daring, depending on the shade you choose! I’m crazy about the look of a bold pink lip with a simple, winged, lashy eye — I think it’s romantic and flirty. I truly feel beautiful and feminine in each of these shades! If you’re wanting to dip your toes into the pink lip trend without breaking the bank, this post is for you. You can find all my favourite pink lipsticks at your local drugstore, for less than $20 (and the majority less than $10!).
I can’t seem to get enough beets lately — especially roasted beets! Do you guys go through intense phases with food, too? This salad combines all the winter produce I love, in one huge superfood salad. My New Year Detox Salad with Pink Tahini Dressing is overflowing with ultra-clean, nourishing ingredients, antioxidants, and tons of plant-based protein to help keep your new year health and nutrition goals on track. Oh, and the dressing is bright pink! Remember how I mentioned I’ve been feeling inspired by pink hues lately? In this recipe, I show you how to make a gorgeous (and delicious) Pink Tahini Dressing, with all natural ingredients. Stay tuned for a fresh, fun and colourful spin on winter produce!
