My Natural Make Up Search

If you follow my blog, you know that I have been on a mission to live a healthier lifestyle.   After moving  from the city to the country,  our lives changed in so many ways.  We started to embrace a  slower,  healthier lifestyle. Starting from inside with healthier eating, natural remedies for our health care(chiropractor, essential oils, vitamins and supplements) and regular exercising. These changes felt AMAZING. It seemed only natural to keep moving forward with these healthier changes. After reading about all the lack of regulations in our beauty industry, I knew the next step was changing my traditional makeup to a natural one.

Our skin is our largest organ and absorbs every little thing we put on it. Unfortunately, most commonly bought beauty products contain quit a lot of harsh chemicals, synthetic fragrances and damaging toxins. SCARY!!!  Once the skin absorbs these harsh chemicals it can be hard to get rid of them. These chemicals can then go on to cause clogged pores, skin irritations, premature aging and so much worse.  In the United States, we have not passed a federal law to regulate the ingredients used in personal care products since 1938!!!!!  Yes, you saw that right 1938!!!  There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today.  Many have NO safety data on them.  Out of the 10,000 chemicals found in personal care products, only about 10% have safety data on them.  So after lots of  research, trying out how they preformaced, and more research,  I have found one that I am very happy to share with y’all.  It feels amazing on my skin and last!!! That is a BIG one with natural makeup. A lot that I tried, after a couple hours  would looked like I had nothing on or would look all caked on. Yuck!!  But I have great news. I finally found one that not only performed AMAZING, but came with a reasonable price tag.  (Be sure to check out below for a special discount code for my readers.) WIN WIN!!!

Red Apple sent me the eye shadows, but I am in no way compensated for my thoughts or review on them! I purchase the lipsticks from RAL and they are one of my personal fav natural brands. All thoughts are my own. ♡

Happy National Pancake Day

In honor of National Pancake Day I am sharing our favorite pancake recipe. They are so yummy and not gut heavy like most pancakes.  Plus they are healthier for you.  Well, as healthy as a pancake topped with syrup and whip cream can be. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

If you do not have sourdough starter you can get some here. I know that means waiting to try these yummy pancakes but trust me once you’ve tried them its hard to eat regular pancakes ever again.
