Coconut oil seems to be recommended for everything lately. People recommend you include it in your diet, put it on your hair and skin, even use it as toothpaste. While coconut oil is great in a lot of ways, it’s unrealistic to believe its great in every way. Today I’m going to be explaining why I don’t recommend coconut oil be used topically, especially for people with acne prone skin.

While having “stuff” can be helpful to our daily routine, having too much stuff can be stressful and hinder us from our goals. It is stressful due to the space all that extra stuff is taking up in your home, the extra time it takes to keep it clean and organized, and the extra work that it will take to move it. It also costs more money because you have bought more stuff (obviously), but also because you have more stuff to maintain, fix, and/or replace. This extra stress can take its toll on our mental well-being.

Most people know that the feeling of having too much stuff is not a pleasant one. But in case you need some convincing: This study found that having too much stuff affects your brains ability to focus and process information, while this other study found that wives who used clutter words to describe their home had higher stress levels and were more likely to feel depressed.

So where do you start? And how do you decide which items to get rid of and which to keep? This article will get you well on your way to becoming the proud owner of a crap-free home.

I recently bought 4 products from 100% Pure Cosmetics to test out. This is the second natural make-up brand I am reviewing, the first one was UltraPure Cosmetics. 100% Pure was recommended to me by a friend, and I decided to try it because it is free of all toxic chemicals found in conventional cosmetics (parabens, dyes, fragrances, etc.). The coolest part of all: 100% Pure colors their make up with fruit and vegetable pigments! Read on to learn how these products worked for me.

Product Review: UltraPure Cosmetics

I recently purchased a few basic products from UltraPure cosmetics to test them out. I chose UltaPure Cosmetics because their make up is free of toxic chemicals that are often used in conventional make up. These toxic chemicals include petrochemicals, parabens, bismuth oxychloride, talc, and dyes. The ingredients list for each of the products I purchased is very short, which is a good thing! The Environmental Working Group recommends you to choose cosmetics with a low number of ingredients, because this helps to reduce the chemical load on the body. But as great as it is to have healthy cosmetics, the point is defeated if they don’t work well! Read on to learn how these cosmetics worked for me.
