I haven't blogged in almost 2 years! Times flies when you're having fun;) It hasn't all been fun and games though! My blog and love for makeup definitely took a back seat to life's setbacks. In April of 2013 my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was hard watching my mom, who is a strong woman, fight for her life. I won't get into too much details (waterworks!) but she battled it, had chemotherapy for 4 months and is healthy today! She had amazing doctors, surgeons and staff and I'm truly grateful for her health and wellbeing.
On one of her visits I started reading about health and diet- I was given lots of literature from her oncologist to read and read everything I could about cancer. I changed her diet (as much as I could). Then thought, why stop there? Why not change my skincare and makeup into non-toxic? It is very hard (and a bit pricey!) to go all green at once! I'm nowhere near where I'd like to be, but baby steps! I've found some great green beauty blogs and its encouraged me to start blogging again!
I've found some great non-toxic brands online... Some of my favorite brands are even available in Target and Sprouts! Brands such as Acure, Reviva Labs, S.W. Basics and Burts Bees.
I'm so excited to find new green brands and talk green beauty:)
