Feeling Empowered & Beautiful {w/ BootayBag}

I‘m just going to lay it all out there…You should not find your worth in others. That is hard for me to accept, considering I am a Words of Affirmation person. People telling me I’m beautiful, kind, generous and that they appreciate me makes me feel good. So it’s taken a lot of time and patience to turn myself into a self-love fanatic. I feel beautiful because I know what I’m worth. I know what I deserve. I was hesitant to write this blog post and include these photos. It’s a little different from my normal post, but it was important for me to be transparent and share my feelings, because that’s what C&C is for. (more…)

Hair Care Routine: Fall 2016

Hair Routine Fall 2016 | Chambery and ChampagneHappy Monday and welcome back to the blog! Today we’re chatting about hair…specifically mine and why I only wash it twice a week. Yes, ONLY TWICE! People usually look at me like I don’t know what personal hygiene is, but looking at my scalp they would never be able to tell. I still shower every single day, I just don’t scrub my hair with shampoo and conditioner every time I enter the shower. Before I started this regimen, I had such an oily scalp and I thought shampooing more often would get rid of my troubles, but I was wrong! The regimen I know use has left my hair light and beautiful, with stronger ends and a less oily scalp.  (more…)

Nordstrom Sale Beauty Finds

#NSale Beauty Favorites | Chambery and ChampagneI know you’ve probably seen way too many Nordstrom #NSale posts, but I wanted to break the sale down further for you all. For me it’s always so exciting to comb through the beauty finds in the sale, because so many items that typically are never discounted, are during these few weeks! Many of the Nordstrom beauty items tend to stay in stock longer as well, because shoppers are more concerned with their shoe and handbag purchases. I’ve laid out my beauty picks for you all to peruse as you start your Monday morning! (more…)

My Morning Routine + St. Ives

St. Ives Oatmeal Body Scrub and LotionHappy Friday everyone…today I’m sharing my morning routine. I am fortunate enough to work from home, so showing a morning routine in the actual morning was the goal of this post and video. I filmed it more in vlog form, because it was easier than setting up lighting in every room. If you’d like to see more videos in vlog form, let me know! (more…)

Your Skin Is In: Melanoma Foundation

YourSkinIsInAs a young woman, I struggled with self acceptance and love. I had low self-esteem and wanted to always better myself in some way. When I was in high school, tanning was one of those ways. Tanning made me feel better, helped me to relax, and I thought the color it gave me added to my confidence, when really all it did was open my body up to dangers like skin cancer. I learned from my mistake, but plenty of young women do not realize their mistake before it’s too late. That is why I am teaming up with the Melanoma Foundation of New England to spread the word about the #YourSkinIsIn campaign.  (more…)
