Infinity Jars (Make Me Infinitely Happy)

Guess what came in the mail today! Yes, it was a present from Infinity Jars! Seriously, how did you guess right on your first try? Oh, I get it. You, too, like to store things and have already heard of the awesomeness that is Infinity Jars. The beginnings of my new Infinity Jars collection I have so […]

Just the Pits – Natural Deodorant Options

Are you looking for a deodorant that works well and doesn’t contain potentially harmful ingredients? I know the search, and it can be the pits. (Sorry, had to go there.) Finding a healthy deodorant option doesn’t have to be so difficult, though. Here’s the lowdown on armpit alternatives: Image via pixabay/Peter Kraayvanger Pamper your pits, for […]

Balmy Lips!

Balmy Lips!

It’s downright balmy around here… at least our lips think so! Just in time for the cooler weather, we’re giving our lips a soothing treat. My daughter helped me create some homemade lip balm, full of nourishing oils and all kinds of goodness. Bonus: the girls’ versions has some pretty tints and extra shine, to boot. […]

Natural and Noteworthy: Aloe Vera

My thumb isn’t exactly green, but it has developed a vaguely-greenish tint over the years. It’s maybe a chartreuse by now. (Side question: how many of you think of chartreuse as being a color in the pink-red-purple range, instead of the yellowish-green that it is? I’m genuinely curious, because it seems to be a “thing.” […]

Body Butter and Flower Power

Just wanted to share that I’ve posted two new videos to my youtube channel, one on making a simple, lovely rose body butter and the other on how I use flowers from my yard/garden to add extra nutrients to my oils. Hope you’ll take a peak!

Hair and Now

Am I the only one who caught an ear worm from that title?  Luther Vandross?  1989?  Here and Now?  Pretty sure it was played during at least one of my proms.  Anyway, I’m showing my age, time to move on…. Today’s post has nothing to do with Mr. Vandross or with music of any kind.  This […]

Food on My Face: Homemade Makeup

In honor of another Fun Friday, I thought I’d share my tips on making up makeup!  People seem to find it amusing that I wear food-based makeup.  (Can’t imagine why!)  Regardless of how strange the idea might sound, it’s simple, inexpensive, and easy to make!  Plus, I really like how it looks and feels on […]

Homely Beauty

That’s right.  I’m pretty proud of my homely beauty.  I love that many of the products from my beauty routine come right from my home.  In fact, most the things I’m wearing on my face today are edible.  No, I don’t eat the leftovers. Prove it, you say?  But of course.  Here’s a summary of […]

Natural and Noteworthy: Rosehip Seed Oil

I’ve never been much of a trend follower.  In fact, trends have a habit of getting on my nerves … unless they happen to coincide with my own tastes or wishes, that is.  Maybe that makes me a trend hyprocrite.  Either way, I recently stumbled upon a beauty trend that has fallen right smack into […]

Henna Gabber

Sorry for that title, there was a Hedda Gabbler reference there and I had to take it.  (The college professor who taught my senior seminar on Henrik Ibsen would be proud.  Nah, he probably wouldn’t.)  Anyhow, I seriously digress… So, I come to you today from my sofa with my head coated in grassy-scented, brownish goop, wrapped […]
