It is now officially spring and a good time to clean, get rid of junk and refresh. That is exactly what I have been doing for the last few weeks. What I have been dejunking are my lifestyle and the things I put in and on my body. As a household, we have made a major change in our grocery shopping. After watching several documentaries and reading many articles we are finally starting to understand all of the chemicals, GMO’s, hormones and antibiotics that are used in, on and around the food we eat and the effect they can have on our bodies. Learning all of this, I am realizing those chemicals are a big part of why I have been so sick over the past five years. One of the contributors to my illness is a mutation of the MTHFR genes (Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase). Part of having that mutation is being unable to detox efficiently. All of these chemicals in my food, cosmetics, household products and environment have overloaded my system and have caused things to basically break. Now that I am finally starting to understand all of this, I am on a mission to not only detoxify my body but also my lifestyle, and keep it that way. This means I am eating as organic as I possibly can. I am on the hunt for cleaner household products to gradually incorporate. I am weeding out my beauty products, researching the ingredients. Almost all of the makeup I own is pretty heavy on the chemicals. Your skin absorbs a high percentage of what you put on it so a lot of those chemicals are getting trapped in your body. With my inability to get rid of those chemicals properly it’s not very surprising that I am having a hard time healing my body. I am not willing to just give up makeup. I really enjoy it! So I am on the hunt to find cleaner brands to experiment with. What does this mean for my blog? I will not be deleting my past posts. My opinions still stand even though I now prefer not to put those ingredients on my body. I also put a lot of time and hard work into each of those posts and am proud of them.  My blog is going to take a more natural, health focused turn from this point on, while still including everything  that I love, in a way that is healthy for my body. Do you have any ideas on what you would like to see from me with this new-found direction to take my blog? Please leave me a comment or send me an email with any of your thoughts or opinions!

Thanks!

Lemongrass Spa’s “Pomegranate Body Polish” | Review

Winter is upon us. Often along with the beautiful, snowy scenes, and cozy clothes, we get dry skin. Exfoliating and moisturizing are two things that I forget to do very easily. But thank goodness there are products out there that can do both at the same time. I’ve just tried Lemongrass Spa’s Pomegranate Body Polish and was blown away by how well it can multi-task…

Four Months at IIN

Since graduating high school in 2014 I haven’t done much to further my education. Instead, I took the time to focus on my health and to work on healing. Its been almost four years since I finished school, so it feels like a good time to dip my toes back into the school scene. I decided to enroll in IIN or the Institute for Integrative Nutrition…

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques “Deep Sea Masque” | Review

Finding affordable, organic skin care and makeup products is a rare thing. Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques is a rare gem in regards to price and quality.
