What a sweet collection of photographs! There is something so freeing about just knotting your hair in a ponytail and letting it be - messy or not - for the remainder of the day. Taking a break from it and still looking so very you. Love the accessories. http://laurenholgate.com

It must have been so nice to do these Asanas touching the earth!
Maya Srkalovic -Apr 22, 2014, 9:24PM
What an incredible article! Of course it is about my two favorite things: yoga and Earth Day! I love how these positions connect people (literally) to the earth and make us feel as though we are "one" with the Earth. Since my knee surgery, I have begun doing yoga again, yet I am struggle with the basics, since I took off about two months. These are simple, and effective positions that I can do everyday, as well as celebrate the beautiful Earth we live on! I am really enjoying the amount of yoga articles on this blog. It is motivating me to get back to doing yoga as much as I did before my knee injury. Thank you for the incredible article. I hope to check out more yoga/earth day articles. If any one is interested, I found another great article on yoga positions for earth day. Check it out! http://www.threedogyoga.com/yogavibe-earth-day-2014

Jojoba oil broke my skin out, but my skin pretty much hates anything. Rose hip oil was good for a while.

If you have really short hair, like a pixie, you still accessorize with hair clips and the wide headbands...

Post image for 5 One-Ingredient Beauty Tips

It’s really interesting to me that so many beauty products out there contain incredibly long lists of potentially harmful synthetic ingredients, when in reality, you can often achieve the same goal with just one ingredient. Read more »

I've been using this for my hair and skin for a couple of weeks now and love it! Brown rice works even better than white because of the extra oils and nutrition in the bran. Try blending down the soaked rice - it makes an awesome body scrub!

Post image for 4 Magic Places To Apply Concealer

First of all, I’d like to start this post off with a friendly little reminder that you do not need makeup. You are gorgeous on the inside as well as the outside. There’s nothing that the presence or lack of a little makeup can do to change this about you. Know that. But for those of us who enjoy wearing makeup — especially on those days when we just aren’t feeling as on top of the world as usual… I wanted to share a little tip I came across.

Are you sure of the safety of these ingredients on the eye lids? Being a pharmacist, I know from my training and dealing with natural products, that the eyelids are very thin and can absorb ingredients through the lid. Also, is there any information on what happens if any of these ingredients get in your eye? Just because it is natural, does not mean it's safe for the eye area.
Sydney -Apr 22, 2014, 4:39PM
Can the spices be dry sautéed rather than microwaved? I don't have a microwave, but would like to try this route. If anyone has done this, how long would you recommend?

One to make as soon as you wake… to take with the sun and breathe life into your day. The other to sip by the side of the moon… relaxing the soul and preparing the body for a night filled with restful dreams. Read more »

I love these two ideas as well! I will have to add them to my concoction collection. :)
Leanne -Apr 23, 2014, 2:34PM
In the morning before I digest anything or brush my teeth I mix the juice of half a lemon in a cup of warm water, add a dab of honey and drink up. This mixture flushes the kidneys and gastrointestinal tract to help metabolize all day! At night I heat a cup of whole milk until it boils. I add a pinch of ground cardamom, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Once it's cooled I add a little honey to taste. Substitute for milk could be chamomile, valerian, or lemon balm tea. Source: Yoga Journal
