    Why You Should Switch to Safer Nail Polish

    I love having my nails done. If you know me then you know that’s NO secret at all. Through my nontoxic journey and learning about the things we use in our lives that can have negative effects on our health, I’ve learned about what’s the big deal about nail polishes and I am excited to share it and offer a solution to you wanting pops of color (or neutral) on your nails. “People get really upset about phthalates in plastics, but they don’t think about what’s in the cosmetics they’re applying directly to their skin,” study co-author Kate Hoffman, a researcher at Duke University, told Yahoo News . “The skin is an…

Derrek and I have an interesting story, in my opinion, because we met through someone that he was on a date with. I honestly thought he was super weird when I…

    My Must Have For Zits!

    Have you ever used charcoal in your skincare? It has become my favorite multipurpose product in my nontoxic journey for a multitude of reasons! My skin is acne prone so charcoal really works wonders with my break outs. Story time: If you go into a hospital, you’ll see charcoal being used to treat overdoses. The black powder in activated charcoal stops toxins from being absorbed in the stomach by binding to them. The body is unable to absorb charcoal, and so the toxins that bind to the charcoal leave the body in the feces. I shared that story to explain that it has a similar effect when used on the skin,…

    Let’s Talk Sex + Hormonal Birth Control

    I am not a medical doctor. All research that I’ve done has been on my own time and I urge you to do the same. I am sharing my findings and what I have chosen to do in my life. If you have any questions please do your own research and decide for yourself what is best for you. Let’s talk about SEX! Yes, I said it. I hope we are all adult enough to not blush and hide at the idea of discussing this. Surprisingly, this is a topic that I am asked about almost every single day. You may or may not know this about me, but I…
