    Dare To Compare: High End Lipstick vs Our Luxury Lip Nutrition

    By Chere Harbridge

    Here is the second installment in our latest love project–a line of authentic beauty care products designed to empower and improve a woman’s self-confidence and her gorgeous, natural glow. Since most women are used to spending their pennies on little plastic bottles of petroleum-based products to make them “pretty,” we felt it important to accompany our authentic beauty project with a re-education initiative. We’re trying to change the way women understand and care for their beauty, and hey! If the whole wide cosmetic industry as we know it suddenly came crashing down, we probably wouldn’t shed too many tears.

    While billions are spent on botox and chemical concoctions making women sick in the name of “beauty” we’re trying to lay a few bricks on the road to a sustainable, ethical, empowering and Nature-based model for beauty. A model that isn’t about how you look, but how you live and that allows beauty to be what it should--a true reflection of your overall well-being and an inspiring demonstration of authenticity!

    Part two in the series of “dare to compare” blogs that look at a few common luxury beauty care products with our be you authentic beauty products.

    Today we are comparing some high end lipstick with our Luxury Lip Nutrition. Below are just some of the ingredients in this popular buy-off-the-shelf- lipstick:

    “Earthing” – What It Is And Why It’s Good For You!




    “Earthing” – What It Is And Why It’s Good For You!

    By Chere Harbridge

    Do you remember when the days of summer seemed endless – and you would spend the whole day outside, often running barefoot in the grass or sand?  Did you ever have times when you would lie in the grass and stare up at the clouds, trying to figure out what shapes you could see…..or in the night-time staring in awe at the stars?  I do remember those days!  Did any of us have any inkling that ‘barefoot in the grass’  was actually good for us? I certainly did not!  All I knew was that walking  barefoot felt lovely, and lying in the grass staring up at the sky, day or night, was, well, kind of awe-inspiring. Read more »

    How To Make Your Own Green Smoothie Jar – 3 Easy Steps

    We don’t provide those anymore, however. On our path of health and in our commitment to you, we can no longer give you something that we don’t believe is in your best interest to be using. In this case, that is plastic. Our jugs were plastic. BPA free or not, plastic is plastic. We loved the message though! Read more »
