I don't know about pink and freckly (being a black woman hah) but I definitely can't wait to do a good surya namaskar (sun salutation) at the sunrise to celebrate in the morning. =)

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 am loving this. I am a neuroscientist and I have worked a lot with natural products, at the moment in my lab we are actually focussing on the medical properties of turmeric. I think we all need to go back to basics. Thank you for posting this. www.lilyofthevalleybrisbane.com

I love this blog! I was wondering if you could do post on how to naturally treat/remove blackheads? I've been struggling with them a lot lately and don't want to put any chemicals on my skin just yet...thanks!

Natural treatments are always the best choice

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.

Can you use cocoa powder? Or is it specifically cacao powder? Or is it the same thing? :)
Jaqueline -Mar 16, 2014, 10:49AM
Any ideas how this will last on your skin longer? I love natural ingredients, but from my experience they will not stay on your skin for a full day. Let me know your thoughts!

Post image for Sun Tonic & Moon Tonic

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 »

This sounds so amazing. Thank you!
Lucy -Mar 26, 2014, 2:57PM
The night tonic sounds so yummy and wholesome! I am a little bit wary about actually eating the coconut oil though! Coconut oil has so many saturated fat and part of the reason I do not consume animal products is to avoid saturated fat found in red meat and butter. I love coconut oil for oil pulling and skincare but I am not sure I am ready to put it in my body. Are there any alternatives to using oil? Thanks for the recipes! I look forward to trying them.

We all know that girl... Or at least have watched her, half dumbfounded, half in awe, as she glides across the streets with that perfectly imperfect mane. Read more »

I have never been able to make my hair do this? One thing you can do to have perfect hair is to use a hair repairing deep conditioning treatment which you can make easy at home. Just watch this tutorial to see how you can make a conditioner + honey + coconut = hair repairing conditioner https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIXvtiYjL2E

UPDATE: This post originally ran on February 4th but wanted to share this useful beauty tip again! Read more »

Elle -Apr 20, 2014, 3:06AM
Great article. The link I pasted (http://oilpulling.com/index.htm) is very detailed if anyone would like to read about OP and its history/benefits/methods. I too was skeptical, no I wasn't... Because it just seems natural to me to be able to use God's creations (food, oil, etc...) to restore our bodies (which are not man made) and remove impurities in this way. I have been OP with organic sesame oil for maybe a year off and on, but I can tell you that when I am consistent, the benefits are priceless. I sleep deeper but shorter and I do not need my alarm clock, my monthly seems to be on track without birth control, my teeth feel very clean, and absolutely no morning breath at all. I realize this means nothing to some - but I am a chronic sleeper, normally fatigue, who never had a normal cycle, and I sometimes have a bit of insomnia. I have noticed a huge difference with all of the above since OP. In fact - I've not been back on birth control since. I've made no other significant changes - because I am too lazy for that, so I know the OP is doing something. I do bathe in celtic sea salt once a week - which leaves my skin feeling like butter by the way- but I have definitely not been consistent with that... Anyway - I am sold on OP. God Bless. :)
The anti fungal soap -Apr 18, 2014, 2:14AM
Thanks for sharing... I had a great reading time.. Most interesting is perhaps the ability of oil to cleanse out harmful bacteria, as well as reduce fungal overgrowth.
