What I Am Loving: April Empties

Green Beauty empties

I love doing Empties posts because you can actually see what I am using. And just to point out how powerful this is – just think about the last time you finished a nail polish or an eye shadow. I’m talking scraping the bottom of the barrel finished. Like, never. Right? But imagine if you did! You would buzz your bestie, text your mom and scream it from the rooftops – get this shampoo! Well multiply that feeling by 10 because...

Oil + Water Review

Oil + Water skincare

When Erika Martins, founder of Oil + Water, reached out to me and asked if I would be willing to try her handcrafted, micro batch, vegan-friendly and cruelty-free skincare line, I was like GIRLFRIEND, hook a sister up!

It’s built around...

Organic City Guide

Good Vibes Juice Co

Traveling and want to know the best organic places to eat!? Me too! These haunts are the best of the best in organic dining and I am so excited to share them with you. As buzz words continue to drive business there are more and more restaurants claiming to be “local” “natural” “sustainable” or “organic” but the proof is in the ingredients and sourcing and my standards do not waiver. Choosing only the best of the best to list here...

Lina Hanson Review: Organic Skincare

Plus, her products are suitable for all skin types, cruelty free, vegan, mostly organic and handmade in the USA.  So a couple of weeks ago when Lina Hanson’s team reached out to see...

Green Beauty Hat Trick

KHUS + KHUS

There’s really no other way to describe this trio. A hat trick is when the same player scores three goals in one game (like in hockey or soccer) OR the same jockey wins three consecutive horse races. In this beauty scenario I’ve got three green beauty wins: KHUS + KHUS Blossom Face Serum, Lip Glacé in Root and Berry by H IS FOR LOVE and Maya Chia’s Highlight of the Day in Golden Hour. This hat trick has remained front...

Has anyone experimented with Cassava flour? I made a loaf of french bread with it last week and it came out decent. Not great. The texture was just so doughy and it was a lot to chew through. Any recipes you are loving? 2. I bought some Boston Ferns for our front porch here in Atlanta. I did this every spring in Boston too. Tell me why Boston Ferns are $12.99 in Atlanta and $30.00 in Boston! What gives!? 3....

True Botanicals Review: Grove

True Botanicals Grove

By now you guys know I am absolutely in love with the True Botanicals line. Every product I try; I love. Luxury, effectiveness and integrity is the name of True Botanicals’ game. They make my FAVE shampoo and conditioner and I absolutely adore their Hydrating Cleanser and Nutrient Mist and don’t even get me started on their Body Balm – this line makes me weak in the knees just talking about them. By the way, did you know they just launched...

Somedays I feel like I am Jekyll and Hyde-ing it. Like smoothies, ginger shots and Paleo bowls all day and then at night I sit down to watch a show with my hubs and crush a bag of chips. PS – If you haven’t tried these Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper Chips by Kettle Brand, you haven’t lived. 2. I just discovered there is a farmers market in Peidmont Park right next to our house on Saturdays that just opened...
