As women in our forties, we are feeling the effects of changes to our skin, our body, and of course...Read more

Why would I want to use oil on my face?
With the uprise of facial oils in Western Society, it is a good one to ask for certain. Whether you have oily, acne prone skin or dry skin, you may also be someone wondering about the facial oil hype and whether or not it is the right skincare solution for you. Perhaps it is the magical panacea you have been longing for. On the flip side, I've even had some people have a complete meltdown as an adult when oil touches their face because they still remember being covered in pimples as a teenager just for coming anywhere near oil on their sensitive, hormonal faces.

You are spending more time at home with your family over the past year and may be noticing certain bodily changes in your children as they approach puberty. Along with this close togetherness and quality time of homeschooling, board games, family meals, and cuddling on the couch for tv time, you may also be getting close and personal and noticing that your child or teen doesn't smell so fresh anymore.
You may also be wondering, does it seem that children are requiring deodorant younger and younger these days? Or are we just more aware of personal hygiene given that we are hand-washing and protecting our bodies now due to the pandemic?
Is it hormones taking over earlier in their bodies? Either way I am surprised lately by how many parents come to me asking if our natural deodorant is safe for their school ager (as young as age 5!) and for their teenagers.

It is so simple and satisfying to make your own nut milk and quite frankly I enjoy it much more than store bought nut milks because I know exactly what I am putting into it and what is also NOT going into it. Did you know that when you buy store-bought nut milks, there are usually in fact very few nuts in it. It is mostly watered down sadly and therefore the nutritional benefits are greatly diminished.
In fact, the beauty of this recipe (pun intended) I am going to give you is two-fold.
First, the superfoods that are added to the recipe to combine with the brazil nuts make it even more nutritious than just plain brazil nut milk PLUS it is the fact that brazil nuts are so very good for us. Let's find out why I love brazil nuts as much as I do.

This may be a major newsflash for you ladies, but everything changes in your forties, if you don't already know it. It really does change your life and there is good reason for it. But wait! I am not talking about all gloom and doom here. This isn't the cup is half empty "oh woe is me" type of story. Oh not at all! I think your 40's is a time to celebrate! Ladies, if this is a mid-life "crisis" then BRING. IT. ON.
There are many, many amazing changes that comes with being a womxn in her forties in the 21st century such as increased confidence and self-assuredness. Many women report feeling more balanced mentally and spiritually as they have found their passions and hobbies that bring more light to their lives. Many women also state they no longer give any "F's" about the stuff that used to bother them tremendously. That feels great doesn't it?!

Here we go again. Another new year's resolution list. A list of goals that seems overwhelming is hard to tackle for everyone. You are not alone. There is nothing wrong with you and you are not lazy. Often people don't stick with their goals past January because the list is too long and too hard to achieve. You are setting yourself up for failure if you suddenly decide to go from being completely sedentary to saying you're going to exercise every. single. day.
There could probably be a list of over a thousand ways to be more healthy in 2021. We all need to feel that we have some control over how this next year is going to go for us. The reality is that 2020 has shown us that we cannot control the outcomes in life. There is no dress rehearsal. There is no plan that goes as planned 100% of the time. The sooner you are able to come to terms with the fact that we must live in the present and not try to control the future, the sooner you will feel more content and happier.

My laundry rituals have certainly changed though over the years and have made the most radical changes since this blog post was first published in 2016 (this is a late 2020 update, almost 2021) with lots of healthier, eco-friendly and sustainable laundry ritual ideas for you to adopt.
I care even moreso about the quality of my laundry, in a healthy non-toxic way, now in 2020. I will not use toxic chemicals in my laundry room nor in my house anywhere. I have switched to fragrance-free, natural detergent (because the word "fragrance" can be used as a catch all for 10,000 chemicals that manufacturing companies do not need to disclose to you, the consumer).
