When I first heard that organic, natural beauty powerhouse ILIA Beauty was releasing a tinted moisturizer and concealer, I knew I had to get my hands on it, stat. The brand is always on point with its stylish, trendy lip colors and I can’t get enough of its lip crayons (seriously—I own them all).

Confessions Of An Eco Diva: My Morning Ritual, Abhyanga

  
  
  
Abhyanga

This morning ritual is called Abhyanga in Sanskrit. Its part of an ancient Indian healing system called Ayurveda. Ayus meaning life and Veda meaning wisdom. I was first exposed to this consciousness-based system after a doctor prescribed sojourn to the Chopra center five years ago.  Since then I have incorporated many of their rituals into my life.  I wish I could say I was a strict adherent to every aspect of this awesome lifestyle but I am a work in progress and being a bit of a diva I’ve made some modifications to suit my personal preferences.

If you were asked what your favorite green vegetables are, you’d probably mention some of the usual grassy-hued superstars such as kale, spinach, romaine, iceberg, asparagus, broccoli, even Brussels sprouts.  However there’s one common vegetable that should be added to this list for its versatility in cooking and its incredible health benefits: cabbage.

Organic Beauty Product Review: Balance Your Skin with Dr. Alkaitis

  
  
  
dr alkaitis soothing gel reviews

The last few years have been a series of unfortunate events for my highly sensitive skin: Getting married (fabulous, but stressful), going off of birth control pills in favor of a more natural method, last year’s polar vortex and a few unknown skill allergies turned my face into a bumpy, flaky, itchy mess. I spent so much money on products that promised to make me smooth and blemish free and so many times, those promises turned out to be as empty as the pool outside my apartment complex in the middle of November.

Confession: I am a makeup DIVA... there I’ve made it public. Seriously, I really am. I am a self proclaimed hippie-diva, do those two nouns go together? Well to me they absolutely do. It is somewhat therapeutic being able to put on makeup over freshly cleansed skin to get ready for what the day presents to me. I love even more getting dolled up for a special event. I know there are others out there like me, and you know what I mean!

Cinnamon Mask

The holiday season is about to begin, and with it comes the comforting, familiar aroma of cinnamon infused pies and ciders that often takes center stage during the festivities.  You might be intrigued to learn, however, that two of your favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, are just as good for your skin as they are for your taste buds.

DIY Bath Soak: Blissful Citrus & Lavender

  
  
  
BathSoak1 EcoDiva

 Ahhh Fall... Cozy socks, hot tea, and chilly brisk walks are some of my favorites this time of year. I also love to indulge myself at home with some tender loving care by taking a nice hot soak in the bathtub. Baths are one of my all time favorite things to do alone. I love the quiet solitude, allowing myself the small bit of time to care for myself through the art and ritual of cleansing. There’s a reason why bathing is highly regarded in many ancient cultures and even today. There’s something about that moment to relax, unwind and wash away the day that is so serene and centering. I love to make baths even more enjoyable by tossing in bubble bath gel or making my own bath soak material. Just a few simple ingredients create a detoxifying and relaxing bath for the body, mind and spirit! Today I am sharing a easy do-it-yourself tutorial to create the perfect bath soak for the chilly and dry fall and winter weather. They are so pretty to look at on your bathroom shelves and they make such delightful presents as well! (the Holidays are around the corner!) And oh my goodness, does it smell divine!!! I am not kidding, it is intoxicating!
