What do bloggers actually do all day? For anyone curious about what I actually do all day as a green beauty blogger and my full time blogger schedule, this is for you.
Managing a blog requires a lot of different skills including writing, editing, photography, social media management, and learning how to run a successful business. While it doesn’t look like a respectable or demanding profession from the outside, I actually find myself working longer hours than I did at my corporate job. The flipside is that I get to make my own schedule, work from anywhere and take days off if I choose to.Read more

The Orange County, California based company first reached out to me in 2018, so I’ve been using this device for almost 2 years now.

Looking for effective organic hair care? After using Evolvh products for years I’m finally getting around to documenting my thoughts on the world wide web. A luxury natural haircare brand based out of the Bay area, Evolvh has certainly evolved a lot over the years with many new additions to their expanding line.
They also switched to an all-natural grapefruit essential oil fragrance!
What I appreciate about Evolvh Hair products is that instead of using ingredients that simply coat the hair to make it “look” healthy, they use ingredients that are backed by science to meet the molecular needs of strands at their very core. They are also a “no nasties” committed brand that is:
I’ve been using the Bellasonic electric nail file for the past few months and wanted to share a quick Bellasonic review for anyone interested in this new nail tool.

I recently discovered the Hey Dewy portable humidifier and was curious to see for myself why celebrity esthetician Shani Darden uses it. I saw it was already sold at Revolve and Urban Outfitters, but couldn’t find any real reviews. I don’t typically review devices, but I thought a Hey Dewy review might help anyone considering whether to purchase or not.Read more

(Updated Jun 13, 2021) I created the ultimate BUDGET organic beauty brands list full of affordable natural and organic skincare brands. This is the broke girl’s guide to the best affordable natural and clean beauty brands. Even at full size these are the really, really affordable organic skincare products that are all under $30, mostly under $20 and often under $10 – at full size NOT sample or travel size.
Looking for affordable organic skincare? Organic no longer has to break the bank thanks to brands like Beauty By Earth. Their mission is to create the most effective skincare products possible using the cleanest ingredients available. This isn’t an easy feat, but Beauty By Earth makes it look effortless. Beauty By Earth was birthed from outrage – outrage at the skincare industry’s disregard for our health, outrage at hidden toxins and outrage at the sky high prices for natural high-quality skincare.Read more
We are all hoping and praying that summer 2020 is not lost, so I am throwing out more good vibes into the internet universe with this mineral sunscreen review. I deemed March to be Sunscreen Madness month on social media (really just to hype myself up) and tested a dozen of the latest and greatest reef-safe sunscreens throughout the month. I love sunscreen, can never have enough of them, and probably own at least a dozen at any given time.

More than 650 different indie beauty brands exhibited across the expo’s North America and Europe shows and there were over a thousand products to evaluate.Read more
I stopped using commercial antibacterial hand sanitizers years ago. Not only did they have banned chemicals like triclosan, but they seemed like overkill. Over-frequent hand washing can render soap less effective and bacteria stronger, so I believed the same to be true for hand sanitizer. The FDA banned manufacturers from using triclosan, a common ingredient in antibacterial soaps and sanitizers in 2016 due to its ability to cause hormone disruption and a rise in resistent strains of bacteria. There you have it! Too much hand sanitizer can cause bacteria to rise up and against you in revolt.Read more
