I love spices! My favorite tea is Chai just because of all the spices it has. When I cook I use tons of spices and have perfected it to a blend that has many of my favorites. White pepper, cumin, cardamon, paprika, ginger, fennel, all spice, cinnamon, yellow curry, nutmeg and sea salt. It gives a very savory flavor to foods. I always try to incorporate and experiment with new spices so I have to try turmeric now.

Beautiful images, I will try having some cumin before bed tonight! xx

Wrinkle emergencies. We’ve all had them. Maybe you’re traveling and your suitcase didn’t quite keep the fabric of your dress as smooth as you’d hoped… but there’s no iron at the place you’re staying.

Post image for Lookbook Makeup: Moroccan Romance

Our latest lookbook, “Moroccan Romance,” became a fast favorite the moment I laid eyes on it.  The bold, primary color palette feels so fresh and cheerful, and is such a nice change from the darker shades of winter.  Mixed prints and rich textures give the eye so much to take in, it’s hard to stop staring at the images – and that tiled backdrop? Gorgeous. Read more »

I'm trying the honey-poo menthod. So far it has been leaving abit of some greasiness. Perhaps you should try a couple of drops to a teaspoon of lemon juice in the mixture or aloe gel.

With raw honey's antibacterial qualities, it's very good for acne prone skin, it also acts as a daily exfoliant. I use it as a morning face wash and it works wonders.

Post image for Nail Polish Shades For Spring

It’s that time of year. Winter is in full effect, but in my mind I’m dreaming of lightweight summer fabrics, pastel shades, and wide open beaches. The fashion world is buzzing with new trends, and we’re longing to bare a bit more, show some skin, and lighten up a little bit — but the cold winter winds are telling us…not just yet. One way you can start to bring some spring into your look now, however, is with nail polish. Read more »

AMAZING! I love this scrub, it left my skin feeling so soft and it smells great! Thanks for the recipe!
Ivonne -Nov 19, 2014, 11:43AM
AMAZING!!! I used organic sugar, extra virgin organic coconut oil and even organic ground coffee, and of course fresh cinnamon. After using it I rinsed it off. At the beginning I thought my skin would remain oily because of the coconut oil. But the skin actually absorbed it very fast leaving it extremely soft. Love it!

I am definitely a believer in these natural remedies. Another great one to add is elderberry extract, which is proven to reduce flu symptoms and the likes. Also, if you're interested, I have a great recipe for a morning detox drink, perfect for boosting immunity and flushing toxins.
Amelia Jane -Jan 14, 2014, 10:41AM

Really trying to get rid of dark circles, is coconut oil, lemon juice, honey (& apple bc I've heard it's good for dark circles) a good recipe? Scared some ingredients might not work well together so I figured I would ask first :)
Jeanette -Nov 08, 2014, 8:44PM
I mix egg whites with lemon oil and make my mask. I have suffered from severe acne for over 25 years and this winter I threw away all of my over the counter crap and started using a mixture of olive oil, tea tree oil and lavender. . I use Braggs apple cider vinegar for minor blemishes and as an all over astringent. ..warning: not for the faint of heart, it burns but works!!!!!!!!!!!! To remove dead skin...which can cause new break outs, I make a sugar scrub with brown sugar, cocunut oil, olive oil and tea tree oil. No more major break outs!!!! It works and I will never ever by commercial skin care products again.

Could you substitute fractionated coconut oil for the jojoba oil?
Dani -Jul 22, 2014, 11:31PM
If you're vegan- try using Shea butter. It's very similar in texture to beeswax. Coconut oil would be a really messy substitute.

No ‘Poo. It’s a term I’ve heard quite a bit on the internet — and one that’s always intrigued me, although I’ve never mustered up the courage to try it myself… until now. Maybe. Read more »

I've been no poo for three years. It's definitely not an easy transition. I live in Chicago with VERY hard water and this affects no-pooers greatly. I wanted to be "water only" (WO) but with all the mineral deposits, it made my hair waxy and oily and dry at the same time. If you have hard water I don't recommend BS and ACV. I used soap nuts or Rye flour as my shampoo and a honey rinse as conditioner. I wash my body with avocado oil or just water and wash my face with either just water or coconut oil. I also use an organic clarifying shampoo (teeny drops of it with mounds of water) because of the hard water it helps remove build up when my hair feels heavy!
Emily -Aug 14, 2014, 8:27AM
I did not like the traditional "no poo" ingredients, as my hair became brittle and dry within the first week. After this, I tried a cocktail of castile soap, coconut oil, honey, aloe, essential oils and many other ingredients. To start off with, I have very fine, soft, straight hair. I still had to wash my hair 4-5 times a week, but if I used it too often, my hair would end up feeling waxy. Then, I moved on to Nature's Gate Tea Tree Shampoo (available at Publix, or any local grocery store, but not Walmart) mixed with coconut oil, jojoba oil, other essential oils, and aloe. This is a wonderful every-day option: no sulfates, helps with my seborrheic dermatitis, and leaves my hair clean, soft and shiny. Of course, I would love to be able to wash my hair less and go au naturale. SO, that's what I'm doing. Now before everyone gets all grossed out, I still rinse my hair off with water every day, but I have not washed it with anything in a week. The adjustment period is definitely not easy, but braids and buns are the way to go. My scalp has not bothered me yet, but my hair is very greasy. I brush it 2-3 times daily with a boar bristle brush to spread the oils. Also, nobody has complained about any smells, and I personally do not smell it unless I go more than a day without rinsing. There are a couple other women who have tried this, and they only sing of praise (at least past the adjustment period). I recommend others try this, and we see if it can be the next (real) no poo!
