  I could use this time to talk about my previous extended absence, but I'll save it for another post. Reviewing Lina Hanson's dream of a serum seems like way more fun anyway, doesn't it?

Link to Foody Friday: Caffeine-Free Favorites

I love organic green tea with an unrivaled passion. I'll take it with a hint of jasmine, mint, or mango, and I'll also happily drink it plain. Since overdoing it with caffeine tends to make me a jittery stress ball, however, I've been trying to limit myself to 3 cups a day. I still like to have a cup of hot something when I'm not chugging green tea, so I've taken to drinking copious amounts of raspberry leaf and rooibos throughout the day. You've probably...

Link to Foody Friday: 3 Healthy Fats

I've been trying my best to incorporate more healthy/good fats into my diet lately, and the three pictured above have become my absolute favorites.

Avocados- My favorite way to eat this little guy is in the form of guacamole, but I've also been putting 1/2 of one in my green smoothie each morning. It adds a creaminess that is just the best. Avocados have lots of monounsaturated fat, which decreases our risk of heart disease and regulates blood sugar. WIN. Extra Virgin Olive Oil- The brand pictured above is...

  One of my ultimate goals in life is to find a perfume that has decent ingredients and doesn't make me feel physically ill or smell mega crunchy (as in like a big ol' pile of patchouli). I just might've found that in Pixxxie Pie & Posie's perfumes. Ingredients- Since they aren't provided in the Etsy Shop, I can't be entirely sure of the exact ingredients in these perfumes. I can, however be comforted by the assurance that "only high quality essential oils, botanical resins/oils & and plant absolutes...
