No one likes mosquitoes! They're annoying, ugly and the itchy welts left in their wake can be so uncomfortable, they might cause you to descend into madness. Other than being a food source for certain fish, mosquitos serve no real purpose in our ecosystem and generally have zero redeeming qualities. But mosquitoes aren't the only critters you should be concerned about. Ticks have become a source of great concern as well, particularly in recent years as the deer population has increased. If you thought mosquitoes and ticks were bad before, hang on to your bug spray, because I've got some bad news for you…Read More
Life gets busy, let’s face it; sometimes, between work, family, friends, the gym and trying to keep your head above water, it can be really easy to neglect your skin. Particularly the skin on your body. Admittedly, I’ve sometimes gone WEEKS without moisturizing (EEK)!! But I’ve learned that maintaining healthy skin should always be a priority because it’s the barrier between us and viruses, bacteria, and the toxic outside world...Read More

Ever since I started out on this nontoxic journey in November, I've used every medium at my disposal to try to spread the word. So, when my wonderful friend, Melissa Wood approached me a few weeks ago about doing a beauty video, I jumped at the opportunity. Not enough people know about the lack of regulation in the cosmetics industry and so many of us have faith that these companies will do the right thing and make our safety the priority. Sadly, that's not the case. I believe it is every consumer's right to know exactly what is in the products they buy, but until we reach that point, we need to be our own advocates and become more conscious consumers.
The app we are using in this video is called Think Dirty; it's an excellent resource, although not totally complete. EWG's Skin Deep website is also great if you want to know more about specific ingredients. We hope you find this video useful, and if there are any questions you want to ask, feel free to leave them in the comments section! Xx

Until recently, I was never really a big skincare buff. Some of the claims seemed outlandish. I didn't really see how a product could reduce wrinkles, tighten skin, or reduce pores. Plus, with the industry being so oversaturated, it was next to impossible for the indecisive Gemini in me to make a choice. As a result, my skincare routine was lacking, to say the least. It wasn't until I started switching over to non-toxic makeup, that I considered looking into skincare as well; especially considering that I am now in my 30s, and beginning to notice the first signs of aging...

You may have heard about Manuka’s many health benefits, namely aiding in digestion, boosting immunity, and soothing sore throats, but it can actually help with things like acne, eczema, and dermatitis as well.Read More
