Whole Foods Beauty Week & a Giveaway

Whole Foods Beauty Week & a Giveaway

As a mom of three small children, a vacation getaway is kind of out of the question. While I’d love to fly off to Maui with my husband on a whim (not that we ever did that pre-kids), I have to clear my head on a smaller scale a bit closer to home these days. One of my very favorite places to get some much needed “me time” is at Whole Foods.  It is basically my happy place, and I often refer to it as my mother ship. In the past, I would easily spend hours just browsing the food options and hitting up their famous hot bar, but...

(Please note: I received some of these items as samples as disclosed below, but I was not paid to feature or review any of them.  As always, these are my own true thoughts and opinions.)   Hello!

Blog makeover & a giveaway from The Choosy Chick!

Blog makeover & a giveaway from The Choosy Chick!

Hi! If you’ve been reading The Grass Skirt for awhile, you may have noticed that it looks a little different lately.  Well, after having the same look for almost 5 years, I thought that it was time for a little makeover! The old look really represented the blog back when it was more focused on food and recipes, but I think that this newer design really reflects my girly personality and passion for green beauty and clean living.  I hope that you like it too! (By the way, you can read more about my blog’s history and transition on...

Chit chat & NuNaturals giveaway!

Chit chat & NuNaturals giveaway!

Hi! It has been a long while since I’ve done a random chit chat type post, so I figured that I’d do that today.  I never have problems chit-chatting… I joined Snap Chat awhile ago, but I finally took some time to figure out how to use it this week.  It admittedly makes me feel like a grandma because I really find it to be confusing!  I haven’t posted anything to it yet, but I have been enjoying watching other people’s videos and looking at their pictures.  If you are on Snap Chat, let me know in the...
