Best Natural Lipsticks

I’ve got my best natural lipstick faves in honor of National Lipstick Day!  Switching from mainstream lip products to cleaner versions is a big deal!  I mean, don’t get me wrong, you should definitely switch all your makeup over from mainstream products, but the lips are especially important.  Why??  Well, for starters studies show that women re-apply their lipstick/lip product at least 5 times a day…so that’s a lot of toxins …

Natural Household Product Faves

I’ve had a lot of people recently ask what I use to clean my house with.  It may be because spring is here, and spring cleaning is looming over everyone’s head.  I must say I’m a clean freak by nature.  Ask my family, they’ll tell you-I can be a little OCD!  Oh well, my house is clean.  The spring cleaning bug has definitely bit me.  I’ve been de-cluttering our place like crazy!  My motto: If it doesn’t serve a purpose,…

Top Natural Perfumes/Fragrances

Most of you know mainstream perfumes are a serious no, no.  Just take a walk through the nearest department store perfume/fragrance section, and you will get knocked over by a serious gust of toxic chemicals.  Finding a clean perfume/fragrance has been a journey for me.  For starters, there were barely any on the market several years ago, and the ones that were available didn’t really seem like a perfume to me.  I’m a firm believer that you should’t have to…

True Nature Botanicals- Review

I was over the moon to try out True Nature Botanicals!  I had heard so much about this line, I couldn’t wait to see what all the hype was about.  I was not disappointed.  When I think of TNB what sticks out to me is a luxe anti-aging line.  Using the most potent ingredients, TNB spares no expense when it comes to creating their products.  I love this quote on their website: “Serious luxury. Superior results.  No toxins. Not ever.”…
