Kashi cereals under the umbrella brand of Kellogg are using genetically engineered grains... so much for "natural". Read the article here.
So with Mothers Day being tomorrow... Wrapping paper is on my mind. It can get REALLY expensive and although sometimes it is beautiful, in the end it will always be ripped up and thrown away.
Instead I buy the large roll of brown craft paper!! It's way less expensive and personally... Maybe because I love all things vintage... I find it more beautiful than most wrapping paper I've seen. Doll it up with stamps if you must but I love plain and simple... tied up with string just like the song. Typically I don't do the writing but there's going to be more than one mom around tomorrow so I need to write names on it but a small tag is way cuter... I was just in a hurry because my mom was going to walk in!
I have another secret on how to do this spending even LESS money... What you see above... Is actually a paper grocery bag!! Need some gift wrap? Ask for paper next time you go grocery shopping. I typically have reusable bags but any time I forget them (which I do a lot!) I always ask for paper! There are SO many ways paper bags can be utilized and my new favorite are brown paper packages tied up with string!
"A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at."
So I've got lots of stuff going on right now which is keeping me pretty darn busy!! I'm with family and attending graduations left and right!! I just got an email letting me know that Weebly now has a mobile app which means I can post from my phone!! Even still it's gonna be pretty hard to keep up this month but I will do my best!!!
A quick few updates... I'm not doing the "no poo" currently but not because it wasn't working... it was working GREAT... but I had a large bottle of expensive, toxin free shampoo sitting there staring at me every time I did my no poo rinse. SO... I decided to finish it up and more than likely I will continue the no poo once my shampoo is all gone. Or I might even creating my own shampoo who knows!
Something funky is going on with my face and I'm not quite sure what the cause is... I'm breaking out a bit and getting rough patches on my cheeks and I think it is due to a new tinted moisturizer that I started using. However... during the same time I was also using the oil cleansing method and using a calendula infused grape seed oil as a moisturizer. SO... I've eliminated all three of those things and I've completely cleared up. I'm gonna stick to cleansing with honey for now because I know it works and it's a lot quicker than doing the oil cleansing method. I'll save the oil cleansing method for a deep clean once or twice a week. I'm going to try using jojoba oil as suggested by Crunchy Betty for a moisturizer but there's a lotion recipe that I've been wanting to make that I think will be a great lotion from head to toe but I just have to get a few ingredients still.
So I'll update when I can! Now that I have the Weebly mobile app I may make short and sweet updates more often!
