Maybe you’ve thought about switching from your regular drugstore brand eyeliner to something a bit more natural, but you’ve been concerned about the cost.

Pool Party

If you’re headed to the pool this month, don’t pack your drugstore brand sunscreen from last summer. Instead, throw it in the trash and buy an all-natural sunscreen such as the one from Soleo Organics.

The Best Deli in Town

Posted by

If you know anything about me, you already know I’m a huge proponent of raw/natural foods. I have my certification in plant-based nutrition from Cornell and have taken half a year’s worth of “cooking lessons” from an all-raw chef. So it only makes sense that I would be extremely attracted to The Body Deli from […]

Until about a month ago I hadn’t taken a bath in probably 15 years. But when we recently moved into a new house with a pretty awesome bathtub, I figured I’d better take at least one bath. One led to two which led to three and pretty soon I was on a hunt to find […]

All of That In One Little Pencil?

Posted by

If I could only use one beauty product a day, it would probably be eyeliner. I don’t ever leave the house without at least a little bit on my upper lids. In years past, I was always on a hunt for the perfect eyeliner–one that would stay put and not disappear before dinner. I would […]
