Post image for Why We Love Springtime: Planting Heirloom Seeds

What I love about springtime the most is the transition — when you start to feel the weather getting a little warmer, when you see the first buds appear on the trees and then everything starts to glow and become bright. Things are given a new life. This spring I have decided to decorate my back porch and start to grow herbs and flowers, starting this weekend. I have been researching heirloom seeds and have purchased a couple of packets from The Happy Cat Farm right here in Philly.

Post image for Interview: IO Echo Talks Music Festivals & New Album

One of the best things about music festivals is always the new musical discoveries that you make. One of mine from SXSW was the California-based band IO Echo, which consists of Ioanna Gika and Leopold Ross.  Their music is dark and melodic, but also airy and light – a contradiction you don’t often find in music.

Excellent post! I've pinned this and will also post a link from our Friendship Bracelet page. I make a lot of paracord bracelets and have used the Fishtail in that way, but this is a really cool new twist! Love it.

Post image for Homemade Coconut Lavender Conditioner

After doing this post on homemade coconut milk shampoo, we had some requests for a conditioner to go along with it, so here you go! Read More

Hi everyone! Thought I'd pop in with some words as a long time DIYer with beauty products. I was looking for a deep conditioner, and this is perfect! This is good advice for anyone with straight or very softly waved hair, and only for people whose hair is NOT dyed. It should NOT be used as conditioner - that is what a vinegar rinse is for. The works BEST after a vinegar rins and applied ONLY TO ENDS and any frizz near the face. Just take a tiny amount, about 1/8th of a teaspoon, rub it between your hands, and grab just the ends of your hair and scrunch/massage it in. Use fingertips to gently spread on only any frizzy parts Doing hair the natural way you should use your no-poo shampoo every other day, vinegar rinse once a week, and this deep conditioner once a month. If this leaves your hair too dry, you are either shampooing too much or using the wrong shampoo. Good luck to all!

Hi Linda! Conditioner in every form is great for your hair, but even the store bought kind will weigh down the roots if applied all over. The driest past of your hair (and most in need of some extra love) tends to be from about mid-shaft to the ends since this is the oldest and most sun-exposed and - especially if your hair is very long - doesn't reap the benefits of the natural oils created by your body. You can definitely use this as a scalp treatment, but I'd advise against coating your entire head with it as a conditioner for these reasons :)

Post image for Awake And Cleanse: My Favorite Drink

For many months now I have been drinking lemon, honey, ginger and cayenne pepper throughout the day. It awakens me and stimulates my senses. Ginger is very good for the stomach and the lemon and cayenne pepper help to open up the nasal passages, allowing a nice breathing pattern. I always have a sweet tooth — especially during mid-day — and the honey in the drink helps to soothe it.Read More

Can I drink this cold.
Sú talún Day -Nov 09, 2014, 5:13PM
Made something close. I will be adding cayenne in this week and giving it a try. I also a a capful of apple cider vinegar to mine. All great things for the body.

Post image for DIY: Cement Planter For Spring

Springtime is the perfect time of year to start potting some plants to make an area become full bloom. For this week’s DIY we wanted to create our very own plant holder using a cement mix. It’s easy, quick and fun to do when you have a couple of hours to spare. The decorating of the pot afterwards is pretty great, too — you can personalize it any way you like!

Post image for Summer Bucket List: Get An Instant Camera

It’s time to start preparing a summer bucket list, and this year an instant camera is at the top of that list for me.  Instant cameras are the best of both worlds. You get the satisfaction of viewing a photo shortly after you take it, but you still need to put thought into each and every shot. Read More

I think the eggs / dairy confusion is because the eggs are usually in the dairy section or "eggs and dairy section" at the store! Thanks all who helped with locating dairy-free chocolate chips DARK - I like using the 60+ % cacao - hopefully I'll find that at Whole Foods!
Ashley -Jul 19, 2013, 11:57PM
Eggs are not dairy
