Three Organic Essentials You HAVE to Keep in Your Pantry

It was 9 A.M. a month into quarantine and I'd had the cleaning itch for the last two weeks. First, it was the carpets. Then, it was the pantry and fridge. This morning, I had the overwhelming urge to finally rid my shower of the nasty calcium build-up and disgusting *gasp* mold. In the daily grind of things it is easy to overlook just how down-right gross your shower can get, and this morning I finally took notice. After a failed attempt a few months ago to clean it with a conventional chemical cleaner I picked up at the store...

Easy Organic Curly Hair Routine: An Update

Well it's been about seven months since I truly started my curly journey. If you're new to this blog, I have fine, 2c/3a curly hair that can be frizzy, greasy, and lose its curl literally overnight if I don't use any products. And recently I've developed dandruff, woohoo! But, I've got some products that have nearly solved all of my problems, and a new routine that has given me lovely curls for days. As an added bonus, these products are all clean, some are even mostly organic, but most of all good for you!  For you wavy gals: If you have...

Part 2: Don't Trust Your Eye Shadow

Last time, I introduced you to the nasty reality of what is really in your store-bought, not organic lipstick and all it does to your body. From allergic reactions, to promoting breast cancer, you found out your lipstick is not all its cracked up to be. Today, I wanted to dive deeper into another staple in any cosmetic routine: eye shadows. Let's be real, eye shadows are beautiful with their shimmer and seemingly magical effect on your eyes, but most don't know they're actually made with harmful fillers, no good binders, and pigmented with dyes that are causing more harm...

5 Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Clay Masks

As you all know, I am a huge proponent of easy, effective skincare routines. Part of that routine includes a weekly clay mask to detox and cleanse my skin. For years, I’d done the same thing every week: get some clay, add some water, and, boom, done. For some reason though, only recently did I come across the idea of adding other ingredients to the mask to take it to the next level and utilize my time wisely. I mean, if I’m going to all the trouble to mix, dry, and remove a mask, I might as well get all...
