Polling is Open for My Next Beauty Review… Nail Polish!

207Comments

Hiya Gorgeous, Getting a mani-pedi is synonymous with things like pampering and self-care. But unfortunately that’s not the whole story when it comes to nail salons and the products they use (or the ones you pick up at the store and use at home).

Sadly, there’s no guarantee that the products sitting on drugstore shelves are safe for you or your family.

We looked at everything from cruelty-free certification and sneaky animal product ingredients to price and overall performance.

Hi Sweet Friends, I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Laurie David, producer of the Academy Award-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth and the new must-see, much-talked about film, Fed Up. This movie puts you in the shoes of obese children in America. It’s the closest we’ll get to understanding their daily struggles and why the government and the food industry have put their bottom line before our health.

Hi Sweet Friends, I’ve been blessed with many teachers throughout my life and they’ve come in all shapes and sizes. My grandmother. Dear friends. My husband. Books. Cancer. Healers. Doctors.

But what I’ve noticed over the years is that my most powerful teachers walk on all fours. A dairy cow… Read More >
