Green Gurls Club 30 Day Detox Challenge

What caused me to start my own detox journey?  Well, 7 years ago I read a book called No More Dirty Looks and my whole mindset shifted.  I literally remember thinking maybe I wouldn’t be able to wear makeup anymore because I had just learned how toxic products were.  The thought was so sad to me.  Growing up I was obsessed with playing with hair and getting my hands in makeup.  I ended up getting my cosmetologist license and doing…

Top Green Beauty Mascara Picks

This mascara post has been a long time coming!  Having been in green beauty for almost six years now, I’ve tried my fair share of mascaras.  I’m pretty picky when it comes to a stellar formula too.  It has to meet some strict requirements.  I mean a girl doesn’t want just volume, but length, separation, and maybe even a bit of drama.  Who’s with me?!
