It’s really hard to believe that anything involving fish oil could be even a little bit tasty, but this blend by Barlean’s actually tastes like a treat. I know – shocking. Even after going through a couple of bottles, I still can’t believe this is really a fish oil supplement. So not only does this [...]

Forget those neon colored, artificially flavored sports drinks and switch to coconut water already! The naturally sweet and delicious liquid inside of the well-known tropical treat has 15 times the electrolytes (specifically potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorous) of a typical sports drink! Whether you’re trying to replenish after some serious physical activity or perhaps (hopefully [...]
Watchdog Group Calls Out 3 Over Organic Labeling
Have you looked closely at your showerhead lately? Does it look kind of gross? Well, most likely it’s just the result of hard water (H20 high in mineral content), which isn’t harmful to your health, but it does put a damper on your water flow. In some cases, the grossness might really be gross because [...]
A quick way to de-puff eyes: place 2 thick, raw potato slice over each eye for about 10 minutes. So natural and simple, yet effective.
Korres is known for their high quality natural formulations and they did not disappoint with their new line of fragrances. I’ve tried several natural scents before, but none of them have had the complexity and staying power (like conventional perfumes) the way this one does. The name – Pepper Jasmine Gaiac Wood Passion Fruit – [...]
As my friend was selecting one of Georgetown Cupcake’s infamous delights today, I was admiring this totally lovely and girlie arrangement — yes, that’s a pink pineapple in there. I’m starting to want to stop by regularly not to satisfy a sweet tooth, but just to see the centerpiece of the day! Photo Credit: Alejandra Alvarez
This foot massager simply looks like a dream to me. The heavenly description: “Like a masseuse and reflexologist in one this chiropractor-designed massager targets every sensitive point on your feet in a sequence based on acupressure principles.” There’s also a heat option. This is definitely on my wish list!

Alaffia makes one of the best natural shampoos and conditioners for people with scalp issues. Their Scalp Recovery shampoo and conditioner combine West African Neem oil (highly antifungal & antibacterial) with African Black Soap (cleansing) and Handcrafted Shea Butter (moisturizing & restorative) to encourage balanced oil production and to discourage flakiness. The scent of the [...]
For a long time now, I’ve bought the free & clear versions of well-known dryer sheets to avoid those sometimes pretty yet far from natural scents permeating my clothes. However, I had no idea that these typical brands of dryer sheets although “free & clear” still are likely made with animal fat! That’s pretty gross [...]
I love this list from Gaiam of foods to shop for to help your body detoxify and renew itself this season: Spring Detox Foods & Shopping List
The Garden Collection by H&M is so fresh and so fun. I keep wanting to buy something else from the line because everything is so cute for spring/summer! If the cute factor wasn’t enough the entire line is reasonably priced and made with sustainable materials (like recycled polyester, organic cotton and organic linen). I just [...]
I have a new favorite snack that is so easy, tasty and healthy. A friend gave me the idea for this a while ago (Thanks, Dana!). Recipe: 1 bag organic plain popcorn (An option: Newman’s Own Organics — go for the no salt, no butter variety) a really good drizzling of extra virgin olive oil [...]
To firm your jaw line and neck area, try this move: slowly tilt your head back, purse your lips together, and try to kiss the ceiling. Repeat 3-4 times.
A really simple, at-home beauty treatment to try: slice a few grapes in half and rub the fleshy sides on your face. (In case it wasn’t obvious: skin should be cleaned before and after this treatment) What should you expect? Your skin should be more refined as a result of the naturally occurring acids in [...]
It’s funny how you can discover great beauty companies — sometimes it’s a really well-known one that you finally try out, maybe it’s a small blurb in a magazine, an unexpected find in a fun boutique, OR it’s your older sister in a small, New Hampshire town talking to the cousin of the company’s owners [...]
I recently discovered Sibu Beauty and tried their sea buckthorn liquid supplement. The serving size is small (1-3 ounces/day), but packs a powerful punch of tangy, sweet flavor loaded with antioxidants. The taste is quite enjoyable and reminds me of apricot nectar with a tart twist. This bright orange fluid is said to improve skin [...]
How fun are these pillows?! They are hand-printed on 100% cotton in Brooklyn, NY. I just came across them on uncommongoods.com (a great place for finding unique gifts).
Yes, these “anti-shoes” by MBT Shoes really are as cool as you were thinking. I have been so, so curious about what they would be like. My initial thought when I put them on my feet: moonshoes! (Anyone else ever own a pair??) Granted, wearing these are not equatable to having mini trampolines strapped to [...]
