My Eco-Fairy

Little Pumpkin Doodle is what I like to call a girly girl with grit. She plays with her dump trucks while wearing her tutu. We spend a lot of time at our local tractor museum, and anytime we are in the car, she’s quick to point out different types of mechanical equipment. I’d like to fancy myself as a girly girl with grit, but I know my closest friends would just categorize me as a girly girl.

Is Real Purity Blush for real?

Indian Dust is on the far right.

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know I lost my makeup bag and I’m slowly making the switch to natural/organic beauty products. Seeing that I’ve been without blush for months and have been hesitant to replace it, I figured it was time. For some reason my cheeks are very sensitive to blush and assume it’s the chemicals in the product as well as the tools I’ve used to apply it. During my prime blush wearing days, I could never wear blush because the day after I wore it, I would get a rash on my cheek bones.

I had passed it a few times, but never had the opportunity to walk in. [Read more…]

Will I always be a MAC girl?

Eve Organics-Brandy Lipstick

When it comes to lipstick I’m a MAC girl! I’ve loved MAC lipstick since the first episode of Twin Peaks. I thought the girls looked so cool with their brooding makeup; so when my cousin came to CA for a visit from NYC, and she was wearing lipstick just like the girls on Twin Peaks, my sis and I thought it was fate. After begging my father for $50, we jumped in the car and headed to Nordstrom’s for our 1st tube of  MAC’s Veruschka lipstick. [Read more…]

Can I make the full switch to organic cleanser?

Since I lost my makeup bag I’m slowly making the switch to organic beauty products. However, there’s one  product that I’m having difficulty giving up and that’s Philosophy Purity cleanser. It smells like a day spa (relaxing), but after careful inspection it doesn’t have the best [Read more…]

15 methods to more “Organically” beautiful skin

Since I’ve recently lost my makeup bag, and I’m going to replace the products with organic skin care, it inspired me to share with you how I keep my skin looking “organically” beautiful.

First, let me tell you, I was blessed with genetically good skin. I have my mother and grandmother to thank for that. However, I don’t take it for granted.
