Post image for 5 Natural, Homemade Remedies For Dry Skin

UPDATE: This post originally ran on November 13th 2012 but now that we’re in the midst of winter we needed to remind ourselves of these great natural remedies!

One of my biggest annoyances come winter is dry skin.  I literally will not go anywhere without a small bottle of lotion, because in my opinion there are few things worse than when my hands are dry – it drives me crazy. Read more »

I think my skin is well moisturized but since I'm 40+ - I also needed to start using a better moisturizer. I tried the one you recommended, but my dermatologist recommended the Somaluxe Moisturizer - and he was right - its EXCELLENT for dry skin. It's non-greasy and if you have very dry skin and you need the extra moisturizer, I think you'll the Somaluxe Moisturizer. Your make-up glides over it, and many others suggest using it on elbows and other troubled spots. . ..

Nice post! I recommended her the Emu Oil Hair & Skin Moisturizer from amzn.to/1uhCcp3. You can really expect a truly satisfying result done like expensive moisturizers but honestly its price is very reasonable where you can even save 57% from the regular one.

Thanks for your very descriptive and helpful answer Jess. It's nice to see how other teachers teach the body and energy channels and also how they break things down for others. You have a beautiful way of explaining the process. Namaste.

@ m: essentially all postures in yoga are geared towards stretching, lengthening and extending the spine, and all parts of the the body. one of the main ideas behind the many beautiful benefits of yoga is based around the idea that there are 2 energy channels running up and down either side of the spine. and in lengthening and expanding and keeping the spine as straight as possible (proper alignment) we can maximize the use of these energy channels. imagine piping...and the concept of a line. the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. so in order to get our energy flowing freeing throughout the entire body, eliminating blockages, we begin with the spine! imagine growing longer from out of your waist and up, even out of the top of your head. cultivate a sense of softness and growth and lightness in every single pose. use your breath. expand all areas of the body. and smile. namaste.

Post image for Pastel Nails To Brighten Winter Wardrobes

The holidays are over and I’m itching for spring to come. The winter is starting to get to me and all I see myself doing is lusting after bright tones, happy patterns, and dreaming of summer vacations. The early dark evenings are getting to me and I’m starting to get bored of wearing my winter coat. So, to beat these winter blues I decided to start wearing happier colors on my nails adding some life to my monochromatic winter wardrobe. Read more »

Post image for DIY Natural Lip And Cheek Stain Using Beets

Have you ever cut into a beet and stared in awe at the gorgeously intense pink-red color, wishing you owned some blush or lipstick in that very same hue? Same here. Read more »

I used coconut oil at first and it didn't pick up the color at all. This was disappointing because I hoped it would blend with my coffee infused coconut oil for a darker shade. I'm leaving the glycerine mix on my stove.for a while longer to achieve a deeper shade of red. I have Olive skin and would prefer a shade a touch darker than the one shown. I'm fighting the temptation to add some coffee grounds! I do wish I had some roller ball vials for this on the go!

Post image for Hair Chalk For New Year’s Eve

I usually associate hair chalk with summer and music festival season, but it recently occurred to me that it would be fun to use for New Year’s Eve as well! I’ve never actually used it before so it was fun to try it out. The two ways I liked best were choosing one bright color and making a solid streak in the hair, and using two similar shades a to create an ombre effect at the ends of my hair. Read more »

Post image for 5 Ways To Exercise Outside In Winter

The thought of exercising outside in winter is not exactly appealing to me… I am not a fan of the cold. However, it is more appealing to me than the idea of going to a gym. In an attempt to motivate myself, I’ve made a list of 5 ways I want to get outside and exercise this winter.   Read more »

Claire -Jan 28, 2013, 8:23PM
Skating and/or playing hockey are great ways to warm up and exercise in the winter! Also cross-country skiing-no resort or mountain needed, if you live somewhere with lots of snow everywhere.... I can only dream of being able to run outside in the winter... :(
deanna -Jan 02, 2013, 6:57PM
I really needed this post. I love the idea of running but not do I hate getting up and freezing. You are right and it does warm up quickly. I am going to have to keep reminding myself of that.
