How I Got Even Greener in 2017

Wowie, what a year it has been. At this time of the year I always find myself feeling overly reflective and introspective. I find myself seeking  out both the highs and the lows of the previous year in its entirety. This year, while it was a total political dumpster fire, was actually a really positive year for me and A.

Let’s Talk About Endometriosis

There is something in my life that has been a major hurdle for me healthwise.  I know I have been alluding to talking about it in a few recent posts, but I have found it hard to find the words.

D.I.Y. All Natural // Toothpaste (Dentist Approved!)

Hello Peeps! A few weeks back we were chatting about our new series: D.I.Y. All Natural where I shared our recipe for D.I.Y. Windex. Originally when I came up with the idea of doing a series based on all natural D.I.Y.’s I was thinking it would be for cleaning products exclusively. But, the funny thing about looking at ingredients labels, is that one you start it is hard to stop. I have been obsessed with finding out what is in our mouthwash, toothpaste, deodorant etc. Let me tell ya, the facts are not great. While brushing your teeth is obviously…
