Eat Pretty, Live Well + Giveaway

It’s safe to say I don’t always take as good of care of myself as I should, as evidenced in my post about about self love. Like a lot of moms of young kids, I grab what’s most convenient to eat and get way less rest than I should. At the end of the day though, all these short cuts add up and I not only feel...

If you stopped by yesterday, you may have read my review of S.W. Basics of Brooklyn and their simple, yet effective products. Today I’m going a little deeper and reviewing the book Skin Cleanse by Adina Grigore, who also happens to be the founder of S.W. Basics.

Pretty Little Liars

All that shimmers is not gold, and all that claims to be natural may not be either. Companies have gotten the memo that “green” sells (green referring to eco-friendly, natural or organic products). The problem is that many of them have found it easier just to claim the product to be green rather than actually change the formulation to take out the bad and add in...

What’s That Smell?

Well, it probably isn’t roses. In fact, it probably isn’t anything you’ve ever heard of. Synthetic fragrance (mostly listed as just “fragrance” or “perfume” on ingredient lists) is an ingredient you’ll find on the back of everything from lotions, to baby wash, to home cleaning products. “Fragrance” sounds kind of vague, right?

Going Green On A Budget

So you’ve read all about the scary toxic things hiding in products these days, but you’re worried it will take too much green to go green? Not so fast!  I know a lot of the skincare and makeup I feature is a little on the higher end, but truthfully I have never been a drug store beauty queen.

Naturally Non-Toxic

So you’re eating right and choosing organic foods but what about all those products you slather all over yourself. Are those safe? Is it really a big deal? WHY: What you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it. Skin is your largest organ and what you put on it gets absorbed through your skin and into your bloodstream, for your liver...

DEA, MEA & TEA- Say What?

Ignorance is bliss, as they say, which is why many people happily apply their same old lotion and cosmetics everyday ignoring the big, weirdly spelled chemicals listed in the ingredients. Some so big, they have to be abbreviated. But I’m here to help you learn about what is going on and going in your body everyday. Skin is your biggest organ, after all, and everything you...
