Post image for Why You Should Embrace Bushy Eyebrows

I’ve always been a firm believer in embracing bushy eyebrows.Read More

My eyebrows suck, and not in an unruly but cool/natural way; the so thin you can barely notice them way, but using the powder to fill them will help I think. Request** Can you write about your new pup!? I have the same breed and they are just perfect! Hopefully soon (:

Natural beauty. My brows are on the thicker side as well and I love embracing them!

I normally don't share when it comes to posts, but this one hit me hard and I couldn't pass up commenting. I am a sophomore in College and freshman year I was diagnosed with mono.. horrible ik, but just wait.. this caused to me to have an upset stomach constantly, making me sick almost every day. A whole year later I found out I had ulcers. During this time I had cut out dairy from my diet, as it seemed to only make me feel worse. I then proceeded to become a vegan, after reading about how good it was for the body. I thought if anything could make me better I would try it. I have now been taking medication for months now and seem to be getting better, I still cannot have acidic things, such as coffee and alcohol as you have mentioned. Giving up caffeine and alcohol while away at college has been super tough for me, but it just goes to show what our bodies can and cannot take. I will continue to be vegan, eating raw, whole foods and exercising and practicing yoga. We should be as kind to our bodies as they are to us.

Post image for Tighten & Tone: Homemade Coconut Coffee Body Scrub

This post was originally published on January 14, 2014 but we loved it so much, we just had to share it again!

Recently, I seem to be inexplicably intrigued by coffee. Read More

Love the addition of cinnamon - I'm guessing it smells even more sumptuous. We use all natural all organic ingredients, and only use coconut oil as our base oil. We never add fragrance, and so are great for people with sensitive skin. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

This is my go to scrub minus the sugar, I made different batches and the sugar made it too thick for my liking. I absolutely love this scrub. I had some uneven blotches from the sun and the scrub took it all away within 3 scrubs. My skin feels so moisturized and smells amazing. I used it on my body and face. I too wondered about the clogging and did research, it says to run hot water a few minutes longer after scrubbing. I also poured vinegar down the drain which naturally breaks up clogs.

Great ! Few tips i would like to mention here Add a teaspoon of camphor to 1/2 a litre of coconut oil. Store it. Massage this oil on your scalp before going to bed. This would help you get rid of dandruff.A mixture of castor, mustard and coconut oil massaged on your scalp can help you with dandruff problems.One part lemon juice with two parts coconut oil to be massaged to the roots of your hair to ward of dandruff problem.Hair loss problem can be solved by massaging coconut or almond oil for 10 to 15 minutes.

I am also glad this post is concentrating on beauty from things we eat as beauty really comes from health! Thinking now that I should really remember to drink more water and take care of my omega 3 intake as well as healthier eating habits in general… Would love to read a post about omega 3 food recipes ;) - natural beauty & health :)

I have had some serious sleeping issues when I first saw this post. I figured it wouldn't hurt to try, and WOW! I sleep amazing! Now I don't open my laptop after supper and I read instead. If I feel the urge for music I skip spotify and use my record player instead. I think I will move my phone across the room (This will make me wake up when my alarm goes off too)

Two other things: - Center for Environmental Therapeutics ( has quizzes that help you understand whether your sleep cycle is shifted and if so, how to rectify it using light lamps. Also have product reviews on the latter. - If taking melatonin, Dr. Naiman suggests sublingual melatonin liquid. Apparently more physiologic and quicker absorbed. Health food stores have it.

Post image for 5 Tips for a More Comfortable Flight

It wasn’t until a few years ago that I found a love for flying.

I recently flew from Bangkok to Missoula, and I was absolutely grateful for a window seat on the flight from Tokyo to Portland. Not only was it a great place to sleep, but looking out the window truly is the best part of flying. Also, because of the dry air in the plane, a boy from my group got a terrible sinus infection and had nosebleeds for at least three days afterwards. Definitely bring saline spray to help hydrate your sinuses and drink as much water as possible!
meg -Dec 29, 2014, 10:48AM
such great tips, i can't until my next flight to try some of these! @waterlilyshop

Post image for 4 Products for a More Natural Manicure

I’ve began making a gradual, wonderful switch to natural beauty products over the past few years… but it seems that I’ve been ignoring a very important aspect – one that may just be the least natural of all: nails.Read More

I know that Jin Soon, Priti, and Vapour make five-free nail polish as well! Haven't heard of RGB but I would love to try it out. I'm very excited about the natural nail polish remover - I didn't think those things existed! Where might I be able to get some? cheers xx
