Can you believe that Halloween is over and now it’s November?!?! Before we know it Christmas will be here! The month of November, for me, has always been about being thankful for all of the blessings in my life. Many of these blessings I tend to take for granted far too often. For example, there are so many men, women, and children who don’t have a warm place to sleep or warm clothes to wear.

This year my Beautycounter teammate, Jennifer Mann, and I are organizing a coat drive for the Union Mission Ministries here in Norfolk, Virginia. If you are unfamiliar with this organization here is some information. Since 1892, the Union Mission Ministries has provided food, clothing, shelter, job, and life skills counseling to the poor and homeless in the Hampton Roads community. They do not receive any state or federal funding, but rely on the generosity of the community. UMM provides shelter for over 400 men, women, and children each night (approximately 330 men, 50 women, and 18-25 children), services for several hundred more through their Day Center services, as well as to the poor in the community. The Union Mission is a 501 C3 non-profit Christian organization. All donations are tax-deductible.

Please click on the link below to send me a quick email with what you have to donate. You can either drop them off at my house of I can pick them up if you are near me in Norfolk. My kids and I will be driving around on Tuesday, November 6 to collect them (a great way to spend Election Day!). We will be delivering them to Union Mission Ministries on Monday, November 12.

Thank you so much!

Good morning! Are you interested in switching to safe and gorgeous makeup, but don’t know where to start? That was me six months ago when I changed from using Bobbi Brown to using Beautycounter. I purchased the Flawless in Five set because I thought it would be a great place to start with its six, high-performing products that take just five minutes or less to apply. Also, the price is right at just $150 for all six products! But, wait. It gets even better because right now, for a limited time, you will get a FREE, Cosmopolitan Award-Winning Instant Makeup Remover (valued at $25) when you purchase the Flawless in Five! Woohoo!!! Check out my Facebook and Instastories @cleanlivingbybrookehoush to see my before and after pictures along with a fun, hyperlapse video of my applying my makeup. Switching to safer never looked more beautiful! Oh, and as you’ll see in the video I use an AWESOME Retractable Foundation Brush to get the best application possible. See links below to learn more about the Flawless in Five and the Retractable Foundation Brush!
