Last year, after a family discussion on which was the best cooking oil, I started using coconut oil. I decided to research the use of coconut oil for cooking and gave it a try. But, the funny part is that I loved its texture, and started using it as a skin moisturizer instead. After some time, my skin was feeling softer and brighter.
My skin is very delicate and my lips get dry easily. If you suffer from dry chapped lips, you know how annoying it is. I rubbed some coconut oil on my lips when it got dry, and it worked wonders! Later, I used it as a make-up remover, and wow! the feeling was great. The mascara and eye-liner were always a pain to remove with any product, but my salvation again was the coconut oil.
I also used it as a leave-in hair moisturizer and it nicely shined and softened my hair. You only need to apply a tiny amount, or else your hair will just be oily. I am not an expert on the benefits of coconut oil and I don’t know if it works for everyone, but I just wanted to share with you all my great experience with this natural beauty product.
I have always been a fan of juicing and smoothies but thanks to the Nutribullet Group, I’ve been trying out new smoothie recipes every day and they are just a part of my daily routine now.
Their recipe book have great blends, which inspired me to try even more new creative combinations. Here is one of my favorite smoothies I make almost every morning as a breakfast drink. This is a great blend to add as a part of your breakfast to start the day with a lot of energy in a colorful and yummy way. It comes with a full serving of veggies and fruits, plus a boost, Chia seeds; a plant-based source with complete protein. It will give you that extra energy, just a perfect way to start your day.

For Spring, I am tending to lean towards softer colors. I wore a sheer flower maxi dress which I paired with jeans and black heels. Then, I layered two Flea Market Girl statement necklaces ( Cascade leather necklace & egyptian necklace ) and lots and lots of rings.
I used mostly neutral pinks for the make up: Chanel blush, and Mineral Fusion lip tint moisturizer in color: blush (got it at Whole Foods). Beauty tip: don’t be afraid to think outside the box and use products in multiple ways. I applied the blush as an eye shadow and also on the cheeks, then, finish with a tint to keep lips moisturizer. It’s a fast and easy, natural Spring makeup that gives you a fresh look.
Free People has created yet another gorgeous Spring catalog fashion short video! This one was filmed in India, starring the lovely Freida Pinto, and directed by Guy Aroch and Carlos Veron. The story is sweet, the photography is warm, and the bohemian stylings are pretty. The best part was seeing the stunning Freida Pinto wearing Flea Market Girl earrings in the video! The two Flea Market Girl earrings featured in the film are: The Half Moon Chain Drop earrings and Triangle Love Chandelier earrings. They will be available at Free People soon. We love how the earrings were styled with bohemian blouses and flowy dresses that seemed so relaxed and effortless. The colors and sunlight captured in the film is really charming.
So last week was SXSW. And what comes after that? Festival season! Coachella is almost here. We’re day dreaming about warm sunny skies, endless music, and parties. Flea Market Girl Jewelry is your go-to for festival style. Remember to complete your fun outfits with layers of FMG.
I’m excited to be wearing one of my fave new earrings from our Gitano collection, which will be available in stores soon. They were the perfect statement piece to wear with my Patti Smith tee (from Zara) and a big floppy hat. I finished the look with new rings also from the Gitano collection! They are the Feather ring and Hamsa hand adjustable rings in silver. Hope you all like these pieces as much as I do because I am really in love with this whole collection!
It’s almost here! Spring is seriously just around the corner. Now that Daylight Savings Time has begun, and the official start of Spring is about a week away, we can’t stop daydreaming about warmer days, and the lovely clothes we get to wear. Blue tones and maxi dresses are just perfect for Spring. I just love how this jersey dress has the long sleeves, perfect for the chilly mornings, and which you can just roll up by the afternoon in time for the sunlight. It has that boho look and it’s classy at the same time making it easy to layer mixed metals and colored tones. Here I am wearing Flea Market Girl gold triple mixed chains with silver color quartz and triple bar turquoise short necklace. These stones, silver and gold metals really stand out on this navy blue.
I added Flea Market Girlrings and a bracelet with turquoise beads for a final touch.
