Last week we talked about dark under eye circles.  This week I'm tackling under eye bags.  Many of us, myself included have under eye bags.  There are many causes for under eye bags but luckily there are also several natural remedies.  One of which is a simple DIY I'll share in this post that can be applied as often as needed to help drain and minimize under eye puffiness! Causes of Under Eye Bags: Allergies/Sinus Infections Lack of sleep Too much sleep Dehydration Fluid retention … [Read more...]

The Truth About Under Eye Circles…

One of the most asked questions on my blog is about dark circles.  So many women are dealing with darkness under the eyes.   I decided to do some research because I honestly don't have the answers.   Telling people to get more sleep and drink more water is getting old-it's valid but I have found there are many more factors that could be contributing.  Under eye darkness is not one of my issues so I'm not offering advice from experience.  This post is based on research.  It took a lot of digging … [Read more...]

DIY Eucalyptus Lemon Heel Salve

Heels are such a problem, especially in cold weather months!  Heck, they're a problem in the summer too!  Going barefoot wreaks havoc on the bottoms of feet.  In fact, speaking of summer, have you ever had super cute sandals on only to ruin it with heels that look like they belong to a 100 year old?!  The best thing for heels is consistency.  Keeping that heel file handy and having a nourishing foot balm is key.  Today, you guessed-let's make a heel salve!!

Probiotic Popcicles

I've written several posts about my gut issues.  I wish I could say I've found the right remedies by now but I really haven't.  The only true remedy for stomach issues is a perfect diet as well properly managing stress and I really struggle to be consistent.  I often deal with what I call "nervous stomach".  This means I carry all my worries and tension in my gut.  I'm very self conscious about my stomach because I'm often bloated and constipated.  I hate to admit that but hey, I'm here to … [Read more...]

DIY Clarifying Shampoo-1 Step and That’s It!

So yeah, as you can tell from the shameless pictures, I like my hair.  But that's only because I discovered a simple way to cut build up and restore shine and bounciness! Where I live we have very hard water.  This means there are lots of minerals in the water.  It is 100% a requirement to have a water softener in my area and mine quit working about 3 weeks ago.  I'm talking yucky white stuff all over my dishes after a heavy duty cycle in the dish washer, dingy clothes and limp hair.  Luckily … [Read more...]

My DIY Skin Care Routine…

I feel like I've hit my stride when it comes to my skin care routine.  I've had months that I've used all Eminence or all Juice Beauty but never have I used all DIY products and had my skin look this hydrated and radiant.  That's the honest truth.  I've always loved DIY skin care but good results were not always the case.  I guess the longer I write this blog-the more research I do, the more ingredients I try and the more success I have with the products I'm creating.  I just wanted to drop in … [Read more...]

DIY Beauty Sleep In a Bottle

Lately I think I've found just the right skin care routine.  I'm going to share that later on this week (it's all DIY products), but today I wanted to share with you one DIY that I've been using for some time now and my skin has really responded to it.  It's a super simple product to make-no heat required.  The most important thing is to not skimp on each individual ingredient.  Get quality oils and you'll make a quality product that would sell for $100+ in an exclusive skin care line.  Let's … [Read more...]

The Empties-My Favorite Beauty Products of 2015

For me, 2015 was a year divided when it comes to beauty products.  I started the year using a lot of store-bought natural products and ended the year using almost all DIY products.   I do believe there are some products that shouldn't be DIY'd and some I just don't want to DIY!  So today, I'm letting you in on the products I use down to the very last drop.  I also did this in 2014-you can read that HERE.  As you probably know, I only use natural products free from harmful ingredients.  … [Read more...]

The Mind & Scent Diffuser Review

Mind and Scent diffusers are a vaporless diffuser that plugs into your computer or USB port.  When Mind and Scent contacted me to see if they could send me their diffuser in exchange for a review I was a bit skeptical.  I'm pretty sold on the diffusers I have-2 from Spark Naturals and 1 from Young Living, but since it seemed like a different kind of diffuser, I agreed.  As I've said in past product review posts, I make it clear that if I don't like the free product, I won't share it on my blog, … [Read more...]
