May Birthstone


May's Birthstone Emerald is my favorite stone of all! It is just so gorgeous and so classy and regal, which totally makes sense with me coming from England of course :) Emerald's are among the rarest of gems and the more vivid the the color of green, the more valuable the gemstone.  Cleopatra was famous for wearing these fancy gems and often ancient Egyptian mummies were buried with an Emerald to symbolize eternal youth (yes please).  If Cleopatra isn't Super Woman enough for you the roman goddess Venus was also said to be represented by the Emerald and was suppose to aid in fertility.  If you are serious about finding the best gem out there you will have to travel to Columbia where the finest Emerald's are made...for now we can just enjoy wearing all the beautiful Emerald Jewelry from the new collection :)

Anna Bee Favorite: Eye Makeup

Since being a mum, I often find myself barely having anytime to get ready let alone put on makeup.  I have definitely tried my share of products but when you are running a business and running after a 2 year old it is important to find items that last and don’t break the bank.  Here are five of my favorite products. The first three I use on a daily basis and the last two I add when I am getting fancy :) They are all affordable, easy to use and actually keep up with my busy schedule.

Maybeline Lash Discovery mascara

Maybeline Lash Discovery mascara

Maybeline’s Lash Discovery is my all time favorite mascara and I have definitely tried a lot!  Since I have relatively long eyelashes (I know, I know, poor me) it becomes difficult to find mascara wands that reach into the inner and outer lashes and won't smear all over my eyelids.  The lash discovery wand comes with a mini brush that is perfect for getting into the crevasses of the lashes and makes it easier to do several coats without getting the excess mascara all over my eye.

Japonesque Power Curl Eyelash Curler

Japonesque Power Curl Eyelash Curler

After trying a number of eyelash curlers I came across the Japaonesque Power Eyelash Curler and fell in love.  The stylish design makes it easy to use and always puts enough pressure on the lashes to create a long dramatic look.  My all time favorite feature about this curler is that when ordering this from the Japonesque website you receive a lifetime supply of silicone insersts.   

Maybeline Great Lash Clear Mascara

Maybeline Great Lash Clear Mascara

Another Maybeline product that I always stock up on is the clear Great Lash Mascara.  This mascara does double duty for me as I use it for my lashes and eyebrows.  It is great at keeping both my eyelashes and eyebrows in place.

 

Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner

Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner

Since I hardly have time to even do my makeup trying cool looks such as a cat eye is almost always out of the question until I found Benefit’s “They’re Real Push Up Liner.”  This brush is perfectly angled and has just the right amount of thickness to create the perfect cat eye.  

Noir eyeliner

Noir eyeliner

The noir eyeliner I recently received in one of my monthly birchbox package’s.  Not only does this liner go on easily and smoothly but it didn’t smudge and stayed put until I took my makeup off at night.  I actually needed a little bit of coconut oil to help remove it but I would rather spend a few more seconds removing it then the extra 20 minutes it takes for me to reapply it.

 

So there you have it,  just a few of my favorites!  I would love to know if you have any eye must haves in your makeup bag, so feel free to share them here or e-mail me.

Anna Bee Gift Guide

With so many incredible small businesses around these days, why buy gifts from the same major retailers?  I thought it would be way more fun to create our gift guide with small companies I have discovered on Instagram and have become a fan of.  Buying from small companies not only guarantees a unique gift  but it 's also  a great feeling to support other businesses like myself.  Make sure you go check out these amazing goods and happy shopping! 

1. Not only is this case in my favorite color, but it screams my everyday life! I pretty much want everything from Ban.do the case is definitely on the top of my gift list!  @shopbando 

2. These moccasins from from freshly picked are too small for Sia now but I love the look and the color selections! They are a perfect fit for the little one in your life. @freshlypicked

3. I'm always using my totes at the store, the office, the park, and everywhere in between.  I found this one Instagram and instantly fell in love.  @whistleandflute

4. We all need somewhere to keep our Jewelry and  these are the perfect place to keep your rings! @theobjectenthusiast

5. This is one of my favorite children's clothing companies. The clothes are beautifully designed and are all made from organic materials.  If we have another baby I am going to dress them in Sapling Child from head to toe! @saplingchild

6. Where can you get your hands on one of those beautiful necklaces , you ask?  Well, you're in luck, on this very website! @annabeejewelry

7. We discovered this pocket pharmacy through one of our very own Anna bee ladies. It is a Canadian based company, which is where Jenn is from. She has been using their products for a while and loves them. We kind of want one of everything on the website. @sajewellness 

8. I can't even remember when I discovered this company, but I love it and I have just purchased my second Decal from them for Sia's bedroom. The vinyl they use is super high quality and thick, so you can peel off and move if you make a mistake. Trendy Peas (no Instagram)

9. I'm tempted to buy this blanket for Sia even though she's not a baby anymore (that still makes me sad). I love the design and any blanket that is homemade is an automatic winner in my book.  @b_savy

10. If you are looking to decorate any space then you just have to check out this place!  It's beautiful and unique decor that you'll just have to have. I recently purchased a tassel garland from here and I can't wait to put it up! @studiomucci
