Sketchy Sunscreen vs. Good Old Fashioned Shade

Link to Sketchy Sunscreen vs. Good Old Fashioned Shade

Lately I've come across a few articles that have caused me to question my former faith in sunscreen. So can we talk about sunscreen for a minute?   What we know and what we're learning: Chemical Sunscreens are both unstable and unsafe, especially those containing oxybenzone (unless you like your hormones good and disrupted). Nanoparticles are no picnic either, and they have no place in mineral sunscreens masquerading as safer alternatives. Retinyl Palmitate, a form of vitamin A, has been shown to speed the development of tumors in sunlight. Still, it's added to 1/4 of all sunscreens. Avoiding sunlight completely and/or bathing in sunscreen...

Link to Get Six Free Samples from Priia Cosmetics!

Since buying a new beauty product is kind of a big commitment (especially with natural products, since they tend to be more expensive),  I'm always partial to companies that offer free samples. Priia Cosmetics is one of those companies, and their admirable practices don't end there. Priia Cosmetics is also a cruelty-free company that offers many vegan products, all of which are free of bismuth oxychloride, talc, cornstarch, silicones, FD&C dyes, lakes, carmine, petroleum derivatives and chemically coated mineral pigments. Pretty impressive, right? Did I mention...

I mentioned my curiosity concerning Naked Juice's Gold Machine in a previous post, but I failed to share my thoughts after I finally tried it. It's so delicious! I tend to enjoy fresh pineapple a lot more than pineapple juices and pineapple-flavored treats, but the passion fruit and banana compliment the pineapple so well in this smoothie! And as with most Naked Juices, Gold Machine is full of important nutrients like Vitamins A, B, C, and E, as well as Zinc and Antioxidants. It's a rare...

Pictured above is my delicious breakfast from Wednesday. It consisted of 1 cup of black coffee, two delicious (albeit mangled) organic fried eggs, two pieces of Nature's Own 100% Whole Wheat toast topped with homemade peach jam, and a mixture of  black beans and goat cheese.  Adding goat cheese to the black beans was purely experimental, but I'm so glad I tried it. What a combo! Also food-related is this article I bookmarked a couple of weeks ago about which...

In light of my heightened awareness of my dangerous eating habits, I woke up reasonably early yesterday (which is 10:30 for me) and cooked a big, nutritious breakfast for myself. It consisted of: 1. One piece of Nature's Own 100% Whole Grain Toast topped with some tasty Basil Jelly that I picked up at the Farmers' Market- Nature's Own Whole Grain Bread has both Fiber and Protein. Also, whole grain foods may lower your risk for heart disease and even certain cancers...or so the breadbag tells me. 2. A Delicious, Homemade,...
