Spring Series - Part 8

We all know that wedding planning can be quite stressful. One way I de-stress is taking a long, hot shower or soak in a relaxing bath filled with bubbles.

I wanted to find a company that specializes in the art of bringing together organic ingredients without compromising pure, potent ingredients to relieve stress. I found such a company in Erbaviva.

I had never heard of Nardo’s Naturals until a few weeks ago, and the only reason why it caught my attention is because I saw four gorgeous men touting the wonders of their skincare for women (and men too).

Turns out, these four gorgeous men are brothers and they have done some amazing things with all-natural ingredients to make women more beautiful than they already are.

They say when Spring arrives so does love, which perhaps explains why National Proposal Day falls on the same day as the first day of Spring. Blue Birds singing, Bees-a-buzzing, flowers blooming, and wedding bells a ringing, well, at least that what most women are hoping for today.
