    It SNOWED here yesterday!  When it starts getting cold and dark, I start feeling the need to nest.  If I’m going to be stuck inside, I want to be happy with my surroundings.  Karen from EcoHomeResource.com wrote the following guest post to teach us what to look for in an eco-friendly rug.  For more information to help you make your home comfortable and green, check out EcoHomeResource.com.

  8. Lisha Lynn Mineral Cosmetics Foundation (+ Giveaway)

    Posted on by Allie

    I’ve had a really hard time finding affordable foundation that isn’t full of icky chemicals, doesn’t make my skin break out, and isn’t too heavy or gloppy.  I even tried a drugstore brand mineral makeup, but it left my skin looking overly powdered, and caked up quickly.  I was convinced that mineral makeup just wasn’t for me, but Lisha Lynn Mineral Cosmetics sent me some samples, and I’m hooked.

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
