Hairprint Dyeries: August 2016

_DSC5435

Hairprint is a nontoxic hair color that colors gray hair for people with brown and black locks. It’s not only nontoxic but you could literally eat it! It’s made with 8 food-grade ingredients like baking soda, diatomaceous earth and velvet bean. There is nothing like it on the market – nothing. This green chemistry has totally been blowing my mind guys. Totally. For more on Hairprint, check out my trip to San Fran to meet the company and all things...

Dusty Girls is an Australian, natural, vegan, mineral and clay based makeup line. They sent me a few goodies to try and I’m happy to see that they are not only nontoxic but they preform too! Earth Cream in Medium Okay full disclosure, I am a W3ll People foundation girl through and through but ever since I got Dusty Girl’s Earth Cream in the mail my W3ll People hasn’t been getting as much love – gasp! This light-weight cream goes...

Bone Broth Bolognese

organic bone broth bolognese

This bolognese sauce is adapted from my Dad’s crowd pleasing spaghetti sauce recipe. My Dad’s recipe is his baby. He worked on it initially with a friend to develop a base recipe but he has continued to improve on it even to this day. Every time I come over I get the scoop on what new steps he added or tweaked or took away.  I will never forget the day he taught my how to make “Dad’s sauce”. I have pages...

10 Ways To Be A Greener You (without doing much!)

IMG_3351

I love following this girl online called Be Zero Waste Girl – she lives a “zero waste” lifestyle and she can fit all of her family’s landfill trash for the month into a small glass mason jar. She brings containers to the butcher, has an active compost and keeps her purchases to a minimum. It’s pretty exceptional and yeah it would be great if we all lived that way BUT that is some AP senior level green living stuff. Today...
