WARMING TO COCO ROSE

If any of you have even remotely explored the HEALTH/BEAUTY section of this blog, you will have gathered by now that I am passionate about beauty products (specifically skin care), and have formed an almost-but-not-quite-disturbing attachment to Herbivore Botanicals. You can read all about my love affair with this company in my earlier article, BEAUTY… Continue reading WARMING TO COCO ROSE

FIVE-MINUTE MORNING YOGA

I have written about yoga before (YOGA AND EMOTIONS), and have mentioned this topic in several of my other posts. I am well aware that this is kind of an overdone, well-covered, deeply examined subject for many modern-day human beings. Who needs one more article about yoga? However, I am going to write about it… Continue reading FIVE-MINUTE MORNING YOGA

DETOX SHOWER

[I will preface this post by saying that baths are good for detox as well, but it is important to consider the power of water flow, rather than soaking in a stagnant pool. This post is about detox showers only; and although this does not discount the healing effects of the bath, I do think… Continue reading DETOX SHOWER

YOGA AND EMOTIONS

If you are struggling on any level, in any capacity, with any kind of emotional disturbance; from my personal experience, yoga can help. I resisted yoga for so many years—mostly because I could not find a yoga studio that I felt safe with and connected to. If you are going to yoga class strictly for… Continue reading YOGA AND EMOTIONS

BEAUTY PRODUCT OBSESSION

Rarely do I—the picky, perfectionistic, detail-oriented, idealistic, Virgo—discover a company that I approve of on all levels. But I think I might have found one, for the time being anyway, and I want to spread the word about why I love them so much. They are not paying me, and they do not know who… Continue reading BEAUTY PRODUCT OBSESSION

BEAUTIFUL FACE, PART III: YOUR INNARDS

This is the third and final part of my series on caring for your beautiful face, and this post is going to be ALLLLLL about your insides. You can read Part I and II of my Beautiful Face series in the Health/Beauty section of my blog. I will preface this post, as I often do… Continue reading BEAUTIFUL FACE, PART III: YOUR INNARDS

BEAUTIFUL FACE, PART II: THE DEW FACTOR

I don’t claim to have perfect skin. There are some women I know who have skin that is literally flawless, like refined alabaster. And unfortunately, I think a lot of it comes down to genetics. Different races and different blood lines, all have different skin types, and some skin types age more beautifully than others.… Continue reading BEAUTIFUL FACE, PART II: THE DEW FACTOR

BEAUTIFUL FACE, PART I: THE NATURALS

Facial care is such a broad topic in my opinion, so I decided that I need to break this down into parts. Keep a look out for additional forthcoming parts. I also want to give a disclaimer about this entire “Beautiful Face” series because people’s faces are all so different, with varying needs and conditions,… Continue reading BEAUTIFUL FACE, PART I: THE NATURALS

DON’T DENY YOUR GRAYS

I started getting gray hair when I was in my mid-twenties. I was like a female Steve Martin, except I didn’t let my grays grow out naturally. I was always a fan of coloring my hair. And it wasn’t because I wanted to cover up my grays. I actually didn’t know I had any grays… Continue reading DON’T DENY YOUR GRAYS

SMOOTH SKIN FOR THE EVERYDAY GODDESS

Recently, I’ve had multiple people remark on the silky-smooth texture of my skin, specifically my arms. I promise you, I put very little effort into making my skin smooth and actually don’t really think much about it. But I do agree, my skin does feel pretty smooth to the touch, so it got me thinking.… Continue reading SMOOTH SKIN FOR THE EVERYDAY GODDESS
