Post image for DIY Skin-Clearing Face Mist

I’m prone to breakouts. I also exercise often. These two things do not seem to work together in my favor. Read more »

This looks awesome!! I live in Cambodia and am covered in a fine layer of sweat + dirty 24/7. I walk everywhere for exercise (and because the roads are death traps) but that means I am even dirtier than necessary whenever I get where I'm going in addition to the normal people sweat I get from actual exercise. Hopefully, using this as an after-walking-in-40-degree-heat-everyday spray will work just as well as when I use it after exercising! Probably will have to use normal, unfashionable table salt since Whole Foods hasn't yet reached the third world.

I can't afford all of those ingredients so I stick to the basics, coconut oil and bicarb of soda with a splash of tea tree oil. Works great

Post image for Makeup Tutorial: With Flying Colors

I’ve always loved experimenting with different color eyeshadows; it brings playful expression to your eyes, accenting the natural colors of the iris or hinting at a mood.

Love, just wondering which colors you actually used from the britelites collection is she wearing the ice blue or the blue and I love the red hue but I noticed it had the Or orange symbol on the side. Just curious for when I want to achieve a similar look.

Absolutely love the way her hair is styled! Now that I have an ombre, I can't wait to try lighter colors in my hair! <3 http://www.ohviposh.com

You could infuse oil with any colorful herb to make a lip balm. A mixture of beet, hibiscus, and tomato could be great!
Eugenia -Mar 04, 2015, 10:55AM
You could add a bit of cinnamon for a darker shade, tumeric for more of a glow etc etc!! Oh the possibilities... I'm sure you could work up a lip stain with some shea butter/bees wax and coconut oil/ olive oil etc. Can't wait to see a follow up!

Such a great idea. Thanks, Julie. I've read that coconut oil and shea butter can clog pores though so I may substitute for jojoba. wayfaringwybles.com
Claire -Apr 05, 2015, 9:49PM
Love these pretty body bars! It's good to see that coffee can be used in so many ways not just drinking it. I will give these a try and give them to my girlfriends as a gift with some coffee beans

I use a ro filter to purify water. Such a ro system can effectively remove heavy metals. http://wisemommy.net/best-reverse-osmosis-system-reviews/
Hannah -Mar 22, 2015, 5:51PM
You may also want to consider getting an Aquasana water filter, they have RO systems as well but their main filter which is a carbon filter takes out all of the heavy metals and leaves in healthy minerals. I only suggest this because if you're only drinking RO water and no vitamins to balance the loss of minerals the system takes out of your water you can develop mineral deficiencies which is also very unhealthy. Price wise these filters are great and the quality is amazing! (I really love my shower filter and have seen amazing differences in the health of my skin and hair as well now that I'm not showering in chlorinated water) But if you're in the market for an awesome water filter you should definitely consider them! http://www.aquasana.com

From Kuumba Made: Our fragrance oils comply with RIFM fragrance standards and are free of any alcohols, parabens, phthalates, harmful chemicals and animal products, but they are not all natural. A portion of some of the fragrances are created synthetically because it is better for the environment and/or not all ingredients are available naturally.

Favorite pastimes: hiking and daydreaming about hiking! Definitely feel lucky to live in gorgeous Washington state where the mountain and seaside hikes are plentiful. ---Thank you for the beautiful photos from the trail!

hiking brings me so much closer to myself and to nature…it definitely makes me feel amazing. I'm always on the treadmill and i get sick of it sometimes, so when i rediscover the beauty of being outside it makes me feel so energized and alive!! lovemadisonbailee.blogspot.com

I can't be on the road without bringing my favorite pillow from home to keep myself comfortable.However, I do need to eat better while on the road.
Anastasia -Feb 14, 2015, 11:33AM
This is an awesome find. I have a three-day moving trip coming up this summer to plan. What foods to bring, if we are driving a U-Haul and a car or just a U-Haul, what roads we will take, etc. When I travel, I am normally in the passenger's seat. The first several hours I have to sleep or I get car sick. Otherwise, my husband and I love to sing songs together. We practice harmonies, creating our own songs, or putting new lyrics to a favorite melody. One time we got 127 ants that go marching... that was a fun drive. I tend to avoid electronics on a drive unless. It's a radio. Even then, it's often nicer to have the radio off than on.
