natural personal care products

July 28, 2014

This post has been in the works for literally years, starting with way back when I decided to switch all my personal care products to natural versions. It’s been a super long process because first I used up what I had, and then whenever I would try a new brand if I didn’t love it I would still use it up before trying something new. Finally I’ve come to a place that I’m pretty happy with, although I’m sure I will still try new things (and update as I go). So as I’m choosing products what I think about is: 1) Is it natural and safe? There are some brands that I trust (you’ll notice several) but I also use the Environmental…

things i am loving right now

Since starting whole30 I’ve realized just how often I tend to reward myself with food. It’s important for my mood to have things to look forward to, and food is usually the easiest pick-me-up. So a big part of this has been retraining my brain to see other things as a reward, and to take more pleasure in little things. So I wanted to share some of what is making me very happy lately! 1.

I always enjoy going “shopping” at my parents’ house, as I like to call it. My mom has saved a bunch of stuff from when we were kids, has accumulated more treasures along the way, and they’ve inherited some cool stuff from my grandparents. In most cases if I say that I want something, I’m free to go home with it. These are my latest finds. baby shirt / baby shoes in original box handmade child’s hat / romper jewelry box (I used to love it) / cabbage patch doll kids’ tee / cigarette box (it was my grandmother’s) not pictured: a beautiful basket and the perfect rolling wooden desk chair!

wish list / 1

May 1, 2014

We are really focusing on our budget right now, and even though in general I’m not a spender or a shopper, I do get the urge to buy fun stuff sometimes! I thought that it might help me curb those cravings to share my current wish list. :) home // some things take time print : my next home project is going to be building a gallery wall in our bedroom. I’m going to have to do this with thrift store finds and handmade art, but how I would love to one day hang a perfect print like this. craft // martha stewart weave loom kit : after I finish my quilt I think I want to tackle weaving again, and this…
