Mine’s a struggle. It’s a total love/hate. I’m constantly wishin’, hopin’, and dreamin’ for a sunny day, but then find myself hiding when it finally comes out to stay.

Buying organic and better sunscreen changed my life. Many people don't realize how quickly your skin absorbs rays and bad chemicals. Great read for this season.

This post gave me serious summer beach vibes. Literally want to just take a trip to the beach and lay under the sun. Honestly, i really need to reignite my relationship with the sun. http://www.thewhimsicalwildling.com/

Get to know tea tree oil, your skin’s new BFF

I am a naturalist with a big interest in natural beauty. Tea tree oil is amazing. I use it on breakouts, scalp, anything bug related (bug spray, bug bites) but my most favourite thing I've done so far is create a dandruff minimizing hair rinse! At first I thought the smell was funky but now I find it super refreshing and I really love the smell! 1/4 tsp ceremonial matcha 1 drop organic peppermint essential oil 1 drop tea tree essential oil 2 cups warm spring water (if it's boiling it will kill the matcha) A splash of apple cider vinegar And mix it in a bottle! I pour this over my scalp in the shower and let it sit for as long as possible. Sometimes I just rinse it out and others i will finish with washing with arbonnes tea tree shampoo. It really helps dissolve dandruff! Naturally! I would love if you tried this for yourself and post about it on Instagram (@andyskye) and tag me so I can hear how it works for others!

I prefer to drop the essential oils on my handmade-bio-jewels so as to protect the latter from insects. Besides the scent Is awesome. https://gergancheta.wordpress.com/

I had no idea I was damaging my hair by washing it every 3-4 days! I start seeing oily roots after that 4 day mark so I must wash. I will certainly be making this dry shampoo asap! Thanks! xx

I probably use dry shampoo more than actually washing my hair. I'm always up for the challenge to see how many days I can actually make it before I absolutely have to wash my hair. I have noticed that it's easier to style and feels healthier. Thank you for sharing the recipe. I actually bought some dry shampoo from free people that is similar to this very recipe and I love it!

I've been growing lavendar for years. It is one of those flowers that seems to take care of itself. All you need is a couple of small starter plants and you will have lots of lavendar for years. They do need a lot of room. After I harvest my lavendar and dry it out, I take the dried buds, sprinkle them all over my carpets and then ground them into the carpet with my feet. Then I vaccuum them up and my house smells fantastic. I also make soap with the dried buds and goats milk. No more itchy skin. And who needs those environmentally unfriendly plastic bows on a gift? I tie a small bunch of lavendar on instead. The possibilities are endless.

Must try!!! I personally think lavender is the most versatile of all essential oils. It's been used for many purposes since ancient times. Thanks for sharing your recipe =)

The correlation between working out and positive body image. Read More

Beautifully said! Our early experiences bring us to were we are today in self esteem. But as we start to age you are really so thankful to be strong and not easily injured. Staying active keeps our moods in a happy place and you really start to realize, that for instance, if you stop riding your bike, you may not ever be able to go back to it! Stay active and enjoy as much as possible!

It's not about looking thin - it's about feeling strong. If you feel strong in body it will have a positive knock on effect in your mind and you'll feel like you can accomplish anything. Women are not the weaker sex, but strong in body, mind and soul. Once we can realise that collectively, we'll free ourselves.

Fighting the good fight against technology-induced fatigue… one pair of yellow glasses at a time.

I just read your article explaining the importance of seeing the world through yellow-tinted glasses. Thanks for sharing that, I learned a lot from it.

Great article! It's amazing how fatigued one can feel after a day (and dare I say it, night) in front of the screen. I've had too much screen time of late due to university assessment and I wasn't aware of f.lux until reading your post. My eyes are smiling only half an hour after downloading it. Have forwarded this article onto my hubby who has been dealing with distributed sleep patterns due to international travel. Perhaps we can rock some Johnny Depp inspired shades while watching moves together. Might make for fun and (semi) stylish evenings in. Thanks again for the post! Much appreciated.
