Why You Should Quit Fast Fashion, Part I

“Less than 10% of what we’re wearing… was made in factories where people were paid a living wage and working in safe and legal conditions.” - Elizabeth Cline, author of Overdressed:The Shockingly High Price of Cheap Fashion  In the same way that most people are...

Witchcraft in a Bottle: Mun No.1 Aknari Brightening Youth Serum

I am about 8 months late with this review and can't WAIT to tell you about this power serum! Which is a great segue into my next bit of info. I will always provide the amount of time I've used a product so readers can get a better sense of whether its a newer...

Tips for Doing Your Own Wedding Makeup

I did it! I did my own wedding day makeup and I am incredibly happy with how it turned out.  I made this decision for a few reasons. The first, was authenticity. I wanted to feel like myself in pictures. 87% of Pinterest search results for 'bridal makeup looks' are my...

Acne: Your Skin is Trying to Tell You Something, Pt. I

A few readers have asked about products and D.I.Y.s that will help with acne situations. I struggle to answer these questions simply because acne is a symptom of a larger internal imbalance. Based on my research and reading more holistic approaches to managing acne...

DIY Deodorant

  It just kills me when I have to spend money on gas, laundry, or deodorant. And while I did find an effective natural deodorant, Soapwalla, (read about this and the danger of most deos here) it's $14 bucks a pop and I've been trying to balance my beauty splurges...

D.I.Y. Restorative Turmeric Mask

    This mask brightens and soothes, blah blah blah... Let's get to the real reason I like it so much: I adore feeling like a kid playing with my food and then smearing it on my face.  It's also great fun to look like an oompa loompa for 15-20 minutes of your day. It...

I prefer a natural, glowy look on the weekdays. And simplicity.  Unless zig-zag liner becomes a trend featured on Into the Gloss, bold eyeliner is not happening at 7:30 am on a Tuesday. Here are my five Summer must-haves that deliver a warm, polished glow to my skin....

Coconut Oil Solves Everything

My hair has been wrecked the last week or so. On many every weekday morning, at 7:30 am, I have the mind of a root canal patient awakening from anesthesia and see no value in doing my hair so I throw it up in a bun. At 10:30 am, when I get a good look at myself in...
