Organic Cotton Towels

If you strive to make your home more eco-friendly, start at the basics and switch out your conventional linens for natural, organic cotton towels. It’s a remarkably easy change that require the most minimal amount of effort, but it help creates an eco-friendly that’s also safe for your family.

Organic cotton towels from Caribbean Natural are Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) Certified, Guaranteed Organic, OEKOTEX Certified (Standard 100), free of chemicals and naturally dyed. That’s a mouthful, but it’s super important that your towels and linens have the right certifications. View Post

How to go Vegan as a Family the Easy Way

42 days ago I said good bye to animal products and said hello to plant-based living. It’s been an adventure in vegan cooking, attempting to meal plan and balancing going out. You see, I realized that as a family, we LOVE to go out – not just for the food, but for the fun experience. It’s different than staying home… and there’s no dishes!

There was a bit of an adjustment period for me to start cooking almost each and every night. Not being able to “just pick something up”, order pizza, or go to the kid’s favourite hamburger joint. There is NO back up plan. If we get home late, there better be something to make and FAST, just to fill up the rumbling tummies at our table.

It’s been 42 days and here are some tips for going vegan as a family, that I’ve learned this past month. View Post

How I Made The Switch To Safe Beauty Products A few months ago, I made a call out to the world and asked you guys (and everyone I knew!) about SAFE skincare and makeup products. I wanted to do a beauty detox, and that meant going through my bathroom treasure drawer and ridding it of products that were full of harsh chemicals and making the switch to safe beauty products. Why was I doing this?

This whole year has been very reflective, and I’ve struggled with happiness, depression, anxiety, my fitness and my health. Health has been a big change for me this year. I’ve been ignoring my health for years, and it shows. I was overweight, unhappy, and I needed to make a change.

I have an incredible life coach who has helped me on my journey. Our whole family has become healthier and more active, and I’ve even started eating a plant-based diet! I cared so much about what I was putting into my body and how active I was being with my body, and I started to care more and more about what I was putting on my body. View Post
