Eco Friendly Yoga Gear

Did you know that September is National Yoga Month? Yeah, me neither. But I was excited to learn about this morning, because I love yoga so much! While I’ve always been committed to physical fitness, it became even more important after I turned 30.
After I hit that milestone, my metabolism seemed to disappear. If I [...]

Over the next few weeks, many kids will be headed back to school. And after Labor Day, the colleges will start filling up.

Natural Beauty Care for Winter Skin

I don’t know about you, but my skin really suffers during the harsh winter months. With the heat on, it starts drying out in late October, and it doesn’t really recover until May when I can leave the windows open all day.

I lovelovelove finding cool new projects that allow me to upcycle my clothes. And just this morning I was stumbling around the Internet and found a new favorite blog: Honestly WTF.

Eco-Friendly Lips and Scents

You know what I love about summer (besides barefeet, tank tops, open windows, thunderstorms, Fudgecicles, summer dresses and lazy afternoons)?
