September 2016 Favorites

Happy October! It feels like I just did one of these posts for August.  September was kind of a blur with school and extracurricular activities starting up again, but I am really excited about October.  My oldest baby turns four at the end of the month! Aside from the fact that the weather finally started to cool off a degree or two, here are some of the things that I loved during the month of September.     LCOrganics Autumn Room & Linen Sprays I already wrote about these in my post on 3 nontoxic ways to instantly make your...

One beauty & health food you’re probably not eating

One beauty & health food you’re probably not eating

(Please note: This post contains some affiliate links.)   Did you know that you can eat the seeds of apricots? Up until about two months ago, I certainly didn’t have a clue.  I just happened to find out about them when I was searching Vitacost for some snack food ideas.  The reviews were all so glowing that I figured I’d take a gamble and order them, but it wasn’t until later that I learned about their powerful benefits. These little babies are so powerful, in fact, that it is recommended that you only consume 2-4 of...

Some of my skin care & hair care essentials for travel

Some of my skin care & hair care essentials for travel

Hi! My family and I took a little mini-vacation to Charleston, South Carolina this past weekend.  Much to my disappointment, I didn’t see any of the Southern Charm cast members- though I was certainly on high alert the whole time. I was pretty proud of myself for packing lightly, but there were some skin care and hair care essentials that I knew I had to bring…no matter what. Ursa Major Fantastic Face Wash I received a sample of this face wash in my last Petit Vour box, and honestly, I wasn’t overly excited to try it...

Non-toxic beauty brand spotlight: ACURE Organics

Non-toxic beauty brand spotlight: ACURE Organics

It always makes me happy when more natural beauty brands hit mainstream stores.  Obviously, I like it because it makes the products easier for me to get without having to make a special shopping trip or online order. However, what really makes me so giddy about it is that it gives other people the opportunity to try a safer brand that they might not have purchased otherwise and hopefully paves the way for other non-toxic brands to enter these stores as well.
