Naturity‘s sugar scrubs are all 99.5% certified organic. I recently tried the Lavender Sugar Scrub, which has only 5 ingredients (Demerara Sugar, sunflower seed oil, coconut oil, lavender essential oil, and non-GMO vitamin E oil) Of course, I say the simpler the better when it comes to beauty products. This scrub has all of the [...]

Lubatti is a UK-based skincare line whose namesake and origin go back over eighty years to Madame Lubatti, a homeopath and self-made skincare expert to English royalty. The founder of Lubatti, Tracy Malone, grew up watching Madame Lubatti and her mother formulate homemade yet high-end products. And today, the tradition lives on in products that feel wholesome and extravagant at the [...]
“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.” -Groucho Marx
Stretch marks (aka stria) are very common, but not commonly enjoyed. The usual culprits of this tearing and scarring of the skin include rapid growth, pregnancy, weight gain, or weight loss. Given the fact that one, if not all, of these are experienced in the course of one’s lifetime, stretch marks are pretty much unavoidable it seems. However, I do know of one natural remedy to stretch [...]
I’m a huge fan of reflexology. One really simple reflexology activity that you can do, at home or at the office, is rolling a golf ball underneath your feet. All you have to do is gently roll a golf ball back and forth underneath each foot (with just socks on or barefoot) from top to bottom. I usually do [...]
One of my oldest and dearest friends brought me back such a treat from her honeymoon in Maui – a set of body care products (pictured below) and dark chocolate all infused with lavender harvested from the lavender farm (AKL Maui) she visited there! I had no idea that lavender was grown in Hawaii! It’s interesting because the products definitely have [...]
I have always been pretty simplistic when it comes to my pillows with no preference in brand. I just don’t like a pillow to be too thick and I like them more on the firm side. I recently tried a quite sophisticated pillow called the Biogreen® Memory Foam Pillow. These pillows are really unique because [...]
I just came across this article – Go Green With These Natural Beauty Supplies. I have never seen #2 (Recycled Blush) and #4 (Sunflower Shaving Cream) before! Can you really make blush from cinnamon, powdered sugar and essential oil!? I’m going to have to test this out…
This is my new ivy plant (thank you husband!). Ivy is supposed to be pretty easy to take care of and it’s said to improve indoor air quality – 2 great attributes of any plant! :)
When I first glanced at this picture below I thought it was a diffuser of some sort, but then I saw the title – Countertop Bag Dryer. I like! I often think to myself “this ziploc really doesn’t deserve to go in the garbage just yet..” A lot of times, especially if the contents were [...]
Aside from my bamboo, I currently have one other house plant and that would be my very large peace lily. Peace lilies are another easy to keep bunch, but my care hasn’t been optimal the past few months so I guess even the easy plants can show their lack of proper care. The main problem [...]
Try alternate nostril breathing! If you’ve done yoga, you might already be familiar with this mellowing technique, which is used to help calm the mind and nervous system. This is one of my favorite things to do to de-stress. One of the reasons I love it is because it’s so easy to do anytime, anywhere [...]
