We’re Not Gone! (We’re Just Not Here Right Now)
If you’re here, you’ve no doubt noticed that No More Dirty Looks has gone dark lately. That’s due to a number of factors that aren’t as dire or desperate as they may seem when you realize the last time any of us posted was, well, two plus months ago. The fact is, everyone involved in this project has been busy doing a lot of soul searching—not to mention having jobs—and in the meantime, this baby has fallen by the wayside. For now.
To those of you who have written to us to ask if NMDL is dead forever, the answer is absolutely not.
To those of you who want to know what happens next, we ask for a little patience—not because we’re being cagey, but because we just don’t know for certain what the answer is. And to those who have written to ask if we’ve given up on natural beauty altogether, the answer is a thunderous no (and we have the chaotic vanities and bathroom cabinets to prove it).
This Friday, I’m going to be dipping back into this community for a clean beauty panel at the 2016 W.E.L.L. Summit, put on by the wonderful founders of the Organic Bath Co. I’m also going to be doing a breakout session called the Discipline of Joy, in which I plan to share some of my own story mixed with some good science.
I’m excited to be in a room with so many other powerful women in the clean beauty and health space, especially NMDL’s own Nicolle Mackinnon, who I have yet to meet in person after all these years.
For now, you can always reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or in the comments—which have always been the heart and soul of this site. Let us know what you want more of (aside from just, like, “more posts,” because that part we get).
Thanks for reading, thanks for sharing, and thanks, especially, for your patience.
Siobhan and the team
