Meet Tawnya Faust. Tawnya has an incredible blog All of Life's Little Adventures. She is from PEI, but has moved on to Alberta. Tawnya and I got to know each other when she tried out Lou La Belle for the first time. She also wrote this lovely review!
If you have checked out her blog, then you know this girl is a force to be reckoned with, so I thought she would be perfect for Meet a Belle!
What's your morning and night beauty routines?
They're actually quite simple since I've started using Lou La Belle products. In the morning I splash my face with warm water, pat dry and apply Glow Facial Serum. I let it sit for 10 minutes while I work on my hair and then I apply a BB cream and an undereye cream. I used to use heavy concealers and hated how they made my skin feel but since I switched to using all natural products to cleanse and moisturize my skin has been breakout free. If I don't have anywhere to be I usually just leave it at that but if not I will apply some light natural looking makeup. Since using Lou La Belle I feel 100% secure going makeup free, but I still love wearing makeup so when I have somewhere to be I apply it.
At night I cleanse my face with the Enliven Facial Cleansing Oil, rinse, pat dry and apply some Glow. It's so simple and I wake up feeling like I don't even need to wash my face.
What does Beauty mean to you?
For me beauty 100% comes from the inside out both literally and figuratively. I believe that you are what you eat and when you're eating a well balanced diet and drinking plenty of water it shows, in your skin, your hair and your overall appearance. In the figurative sense, beauty is about so much more than appearance. Have you ever met someone who on the outside appears beautiful and as you come to know them more you realize that their personality, energy and attitude just plain stinks; notice how their outward beauty slowly dwindles as you come to this realization? The people I find to be the most beautiful are those who radiate beauty from the depth of their soul, those people who walk into the room and draw everyone to them just by simply being. That to me, is the definition of beauty and it has nothing to do with outward appearance.
What is your favorite healthy habit?
Exercise. Lifting weights and running are my first choice.
Favorite Food? Healthy and a treat?
My favorite healthy treat is definitely a green smoothie, you can make them taste SO good with just the right amount of fruit, I usually add a little bit of coconut greek yogurt too and they are perfect! I also love a good latte and treat myself every now and again, my favorite is the Cinnamon Dolche Latte from Starbucks.
Favorite Guilty Pleasure?
Candy! I love all candy and peanut m&m's are the way to my heart ;)
What is the best piece of beauty advice you've ever received?
Beauty comes from the inside out so treat your body like a temple, nourish it with good things and your outward appearance will reflect that.
Best make up trick?
Filling my eyebrows is hands down the best make up trick I have. It is the first thing I do even if I'm going makeup free, it just gives helps make your eyes pop so much more... and even if your eyebrows are in need of a wax, you can hide it by filling them.
If you could tell your 15 year old self something about beauty, what would you say?
Embrace your "Imperfections", they make you who you are also wash your makeup off every single night, no matter how tired you are.
What do you do to stay green?
Cloth diaper ;) I also try my best to clean with more natural products, it's a learning curve though and a work in progress.
Favorite thing to do for self care?
I love getting my nails done and go once every few weeks. There isn't a lot that I do for myself now that I have a family to look after but for some reason having my nails done always makes me feel pulled together so I indulge in that for me.
Favorite way to #livelikeabelle?
I absolutely love having fresh flowers in my home. About once a week while grocery shopping I will pick up a boquet for the kitchen table, recently my daughter has caught onto this habit and she loves to pick out the flowers of the week. It's so fun to see what she picks and seeing the fresh flowers in my home makes me feel happy.
