The Ugly Truth Behind the Beauty Counter

When you think of living a healthy lifestyle, what is it that you think of? If you’re like most people, its probably exercising and eating right. We don’t often think about changing what we use on our skin, our shampoo or other beauty products as part of living a healthier life. It’s crazy the things that we would never dream of ingesting but will put on our skin or use on our bodies daily. For whatever reason, changing our skincare routines and making more informed choices regarding our skincare products has seen a much slower shift in focus. To put...

Why a blog is helpful to an online business

What is the purpose of a blog? I am just learning here but to me it’s a place where I can write about my journey, my thoughts, opinions and what lies behind the In a way it’s like my journal.

Why shopping local matters

Do you ever wonder why it’s better to support local small businesses rather than shop at larger chain stores? Do you think the ‘shop local movement’ is a trend that will soon fade? That small, niche stores claiming to provide healthier products are overpriced? Do you even think of these things when you shop or do you just look for the most convenient and cost effective options? I never understood how or why shopping at large chain stores negatively impacted local economies, nor did I really care. I didn’t think about my consumer choices much more than where could I...
