Going Gray: Why I Stopped Dying My Hair

Growing Out Gray Hair_

If you suggested to me, even a year ago, that I should consider going gray, I would have laughed out loud and said something like, There’s not a snowballs chance in h*ll or Save the drama for your mama or I’m sorry, we can’t be friends anymore.  I mean I even remember saying at one point, No matter how green I go, I will never go gray.  My hair is kind of my thing. I started going premature gray at 19 and...

Boxwalla June_

Guys. Seriously with this Boxwalla Earthwise Beauty colab!? I am totally floored. When I got my June Boxwalla in the mail I was a little mediocre about it.

I mean, I can judge a book by it’s cover like no other and I totally had all of that going on here. But then I started using Earthwise...

nontoxic face spfs

One of the most frequent questions I am getting right now is “What face SPF do you use!?” Well good question ladies. There is not a one size fits all answer here – WHY!?

I have 4 top picks for this summer that do not disappoint....
