Flawless DIY Liquid Foundation

Flawless DIY Liquid Foundation

I’m kind of a makeup junkie. My favorite safe beauty brand is hands down Beautycounter. This might come as a surprise to you all because I’m a “natural mama” but I like nothing more than to walk through a beauty store and swatch eye shadow colors up to my elbows. There is just something about the pretty colors and perfectly cute containers of makeup that makes me happy. Since discovering that most of these products are highly toxic I have tried to use safer products. I’ve tested all kinds of “natural” products and I’m always disappointed with the results. Beautycounter...

Real Food Caramel Chews

Real Food Caramel Chews

CARAMEL….Need I say more? Ok… I will. I had this wise idea to make homemade caramel this holiday season. Upon looking at a couple recipes I realized that pretty much all of them call for some FAKE FOOD. The culprits? Corn syrup and canned evaporated milk(what is that stuff anyway?). You would think I would be less and less surprised when I discover some of my favorite foods contain nasty ingredients. But…it gets me every. single. time. First I feel sad that our food industry has us unknowingly consuming GARBAGE  and after feeling sad I get fiery! Chewy delicious buttery...

Holiday Pear Cosmo Recipe

Holiday Pear Cosmo Recipe

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! I love everything about it…the food, the food and the food. Just kidding. While I do love the delicious food thanksgiving brings I love the meaning of the holiday. A time to reflect on EVERYTHING we have to be thankful for. Often, it’s so much easier to focus on the negative things that are happening in our life and we forget to realize how blessed we are. I am quite possibly the most blessed woman alive. I’m married to a man I love and admire, together we  have the sweetest little boy in the world,...

I’ve learned so much about the nasty ingredients in cosmetics and it is...

Homemade Face Lotion

Homemade Face Lotion

Since switching to a more natural lifestyle one of the hardest areas to make the “all-natural” switch has been – beauty products.  At first it was really difficult for me to even believe that beauty products could really be “that bad” but after a lot of reading I began to realize that whether I liked it or not conventional skincare and beauty products are full of nasty ingredients. Now you might ask..  I’m not ingesting these products so what’s the big deal? Unfortunately the skin is the largest organ in the body and it only takes a matter of seconds...
