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

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!

Lovely idea. Can you store them NOT in the freezer? Any advice no where to buy good quality but cheap shea butter for these? Thanks!
Wayfaring Wyble -May 06, 2015, 10:13AM
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.

Post image for Using Pure Water To Detox Heavy Metals

I always kind of just assumed that clean water was clean water.Read More

I installed a under sink water filter over a week ago. I stalled for so long b/c I didn't want to spend the money. However, I'm glad I did. I did lots of research and decided on this company. Filters everything including fluoride, heavy metals, medications. I have hypothyroidism so that is important. Even my dogs love it, I have to fill the water bowl twice a day now.

I use a ro filter to purify water. Such a ro system can effectively remove heavy metals.

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.

Post image for Keep Close to Nature’s Heart…The Benefits of Hiking

“Keep close to nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain, or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” — John MuirRead More

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!
Madison -Feb 19, 2015, 10:03PM
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!!

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.

I have been eating raw for 6 months now. For me some of the bloating seemed to be an initial reaction that occurred due to the change and my body cleansing a bit. The only time I feel bloated on the diet now is if I overdo it with cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, broccoli, kale, cauliflower, etc.). This is where fruit helps out. Just a tip from my experience. If you are looking for more raw recipes check out my blog!
fp joanna -Jan 24, 2015, 8:42PM
Hi Maddie! Why yes, yes I did. I added overnight oats to my daily diet and that seemed to help a little. However, after the two weeks of raw food, I added quinoa and black beans. I also started steaming my spinach and kale which made it easier to digest, for me. Everyone reacts differently -- I'm so happy that you found a plan that works for you and that you are feeling great! xx
