The Review I Wanted to Write About Ethique, But Didn’t

Shampoo bars? Conditioner bars? Even deodorant all completely in bar form. No plastic bottles. No plastic wrapping. Consider me equal parts skeptical and intrigued. Recently I have been double checking my sources when it comes to “all-natural” products to make sure that I’m not falling prey to greenwashing. Can’t trick me with leaves in your…

Ditch Those Disposables

For this eco-friendly Friday, we’re going to touch base on reusable razors. They can be a little unnerving for people who tend to shave around some more delicate areas like the armpit and the back of the knee, but they’re not as scary as they seem. Here’s what pushed me to take the plunge. Personally,…

Mommy Blues

Attitude is a funny thing, especially when the person serving it to you relies on you for everything. So if they decide to spit on your pillow and then need their butt wiped, you’re at their mercy.

Those who know me know that it isn’t often that I leave a chore undone. I’ve made a habit out of spending entire days off reorganizing closets and triple vacuuming carpets.
