My girl is generally a good eater. But, oftentimes, she will come home with a full lunch. Barely touched. And several of the parents, when we get together will lament about that. They've brought it to the teacher's attention and at the beginning of the year, he did say he would try to be more conscientious about it and make sure the children are eating...

Conscious Parenting

Have you ever read the book "Celestine Prophecy"? I read that book maybe when I was in High School and one thing totally stuck in my head - the idea that everyone that we meet, we are supposed to meet. And, I truly believe that. What does that have to do with conscious parenting?

New Clean Beauty Finds

In my last post I mentioned that I attended the Indie Beauty Expo here in Los Angeles. Firstly, I'd like to say what a great job they do in helping small indie brands think about scaling up. They brought in Evine as a partner and then since Evine is like a QVC, they also brought in Covalence Laboratories to help these smaller brands recognize that they can scale if/when they want to.

Now onto the discoveries! Well, my client, Lalun Naturals, of course launched her Astral Body collection. I walked away with two products. Skyblue Beard Oil and Golden Sun Drops.

Face regimen

I've been changing up my face cleaning regimen lately. Well, just my night time ritual. I used to clean my face and apply a moisturizer, be it oil, a balm or cream. A while back I had read a blog post by Josh Rosebrook where he talks about not using water to cleanse the skin. Or at least not oil AND water because that doesn't work. It made sense to me, but then again, I continued to use my oil and wash off with water. I know it doesn't quite wash it off because water doesn't do that. But I also wasn't willing to just "wash off" with my hydrosol because frankly, it costs a lot of money.
