Well, if you didn’t think I was hippy-dippy before, you will once you hear about my Diva Cup. Gentlemen, unless you’re a glutton for punishment I suggest you skip this post–it’s about to get reaaalll feminine. So, as I wrote a week ago, I recently went off the Pill, which so far I’m very happy […]

I’ve decided to go off the birth control pill.  Again. I’ve made this decision countless times. Every time I go on a particular pill I generally end up wanting to go off of it within a year or so. Why? The Side Effects–I won’t get too detailed here. If you’re a woman who’s been on […]

I just love the Caveman Regimen. If you haven’t read my previous post about why I started the Caveman Regimen (and what it is) I suggest you read that first. It’s officially been a month since I started this whole not washing thing and I just love it. Before deciding to try the caveman regimen, […]

I recently wrote about my adventures with the no ‘poo or no shampoo regimen. I never attempted the baking soda/apple cider vinegar routine because it’s really not suitable for colored hair (If you don’t already know, I color mine to cover grey hair…at age 25 arg). Instead I chose to use the “conditioner only” method […]

I wrote a few weeks ago about my plans to wean myself off the twice-a-day applications of benzoyl peroxide I’d been using for years to control my acne. My wedding has officially come and gone (yay! married!) and so I decided I was ready. I figured there would be no better time to begin my […]

At 25 my struggle with acne is hardly rare, but yet another inflammatory auto-immune type problem that I’ve struggled with is canker sores. Canker sores, if you aren’t familiar with them, are little open white sores that appear on the inside of your mouth (for me, usually on my lower gums) and they are excruciating. […]

I remember being about 13 and having what I now consider my first IBS attack. It started with a burger and ended with a very painful tummy. My dad told me then that he had IBS and that I might have it too. So for a long time, I just figured it was genetic and […]

Alright I’ve been taking Cod Liver Oil for about two weeks now and my skin has this glow to it that it hasn’t had since…ever.  I’m really not a huge fan of supplements-I tend to think once you start taking them your body grows dependent so if you ever stop taking it, it can screw […]

I believe you should eat healthy as a loving gesture toward yourself. I believe when you eat as self-love, your diet changes for the better in a way that seems effortless. Suddenly eating healthy isn’t about punishment (because you’ve gained weight), it isn’t about control (anyone who’s every had an eating disorder knows how negative that […]

What if you could get rid of most of your products and grooming routines and not only look just as good but actually look better?! Well, I’m here to argue that you can. (Not to mention, by cutting out makeup and products, you’ll limit your exposure to harsh and unnatural chemicals!)  Here are a few […]

I worry a lot about what life will be like for my future children. I worry about whether they’ll take the time to get off the computer and go play outside. I hope they’ll invite friends over and go visit them instead of just interacting on Facebook. But most of all, I worry about what […]
