3 Tips to Get the Most Out of Natural Mascara

I’ve had my ups and downs with natural mascara (who hasn’t?), but over the last year or so natural mascara has really improved. I don’t get those pangs of longing for the old stuff anymore.

Maybe you’ve found your holy grail mascara, maybe not. Whatever you’re using, you can extend the life and performance of your mascara by following these tips. 1. Consider ditching the eyelash curler. Yes, you read that correctly. Many women revere eyelash […]


How To Make Chai With Healing Spices

  If you’ve tried chai, chances are you ordered a chai tea latte from Starbucks or purchased ready-made chai tea concentrate or tea bags from the store. As with most things, the homemade version is far tastier and more robust. In just a few minutes, you can make your own chai blend that will ward off that winter chill, get your blood circulating thanks to the spice quotient, and save you some cash in the process. Aromatic spices lend incredible flavor to chai as well as a heaping dose of health benefits. Spices contain antioxidants and other healing compounds that help […]

Are You Ready For The Skin You Wish You Had? KYPRIS Will Get You There (Product Review)

  You may have noticed I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve had big things brewing at work (unrelated to my NMDL life), and some extraordinary stress to match my new level of responsibility. This has made my skin situation sketchy at times, but in the midst of it all, I discovered a game-changing product line. I have the lucky conundrum of too many products to try, whether purchased in a fit of extravagance – which happens far too often – or generously given to me by a company. It’s one thing to try a new shade of lipstick. There’s […]

5 Ways Your Skin Is Trying to Tell You Something

Even after I switched to green beauty products, my skin acted up. It still sometimes got irritated and angry when I tried new products. When I switched fully over to being gluten-free, my skin went through a little detox. When I tried the Whole30, my face (and body) gave me a little push back. When I went off of birth control, my skin pretty much yelled at me for four months. Even when I don’t drink enough water, I see more visible fine lines on my forehead. My point? Lots of things can mess with our skin, even transitions to new, healthier […]
