Natural Deodorant Reviews

Beauty

I’d like to start this by saying the term natural deodorant is misleading. Many of you contacted me regarding this after my original post about switching to natural deodorant and I agree with you. The term is being used again in this post because this is how such deodorants are marketed and it’s the easiest way to explain them. We all have our personal preferences of what we wish to…

Transitioning to Natural Deodorant: My Experience

Beauty

I sit here typing this grateful for a stuffed up nose. See, I’ve decided to switch to natural deodorant and I’m going through what they call the “detox period.” Not too pretty… but neither is what is inside traditional antiperspirants and deodorant. A short blip of time where I need to shower twice a day (I haven’t showered yet today) is worth it to rid myself of chemicals and metals…

Greening Your Beauty Routine

Beauty

In a previous post I mentioned how you can replace disposable cotton rounds and cotton balls with reusable rounds. A few of you were interested to hear more about such a product. When I found out I was pregnant, I did a lot of research on healthy ways to rear a child. I learned so much about the chemicals used and waste created when having a baby it floored me.…

Inside our Home – Main Floor Half Bath

Lifestyle

It sounds strange, but one of my favorite rooms in our home is the half bath on the main floor. Before the remodel, we only had one bathroom; I begged to have a half bath on the main floor so we could keep our personal bathroom private, and have one for guests to use.  I also was adamant that the bathroom be orange.  Not pumpkin, not coral, not rust. Orange. …

There’s No Place Like Home

Lifestyle

One of the best parts of going on vacation is coming home. A little over a decade ago, my then-boyfriend asked me to live with him in a town very close to where we both grew up. This was a town lovingly called “The Two-story Trailer Park” by locals because of the very small row houses. Our town is a co-op that was created as part of Roosevelt’s New Deal…
