  • The post you send to your friends who are STILL wearing perfume A while back I wrote an open letter to everyone in my orbit asking if they’d consider not wearing perfume around me.

  • Golly! Your nail polish might be making you fat… Nail polish. I don’t use it. For the same reasons I avoid conventional beauty products, sun screen and perfume. The stuff is toxic and not necessary. Now, new research claims nail polish can cause weight gain. Good Lord.

  • The best toxin-free cosmetics – my personal listicle Yesterday, I shared how to choose the best toxin-free cosmetics. As promised, here’s my own safe beauty shopping list.
