HEALTH

Some can get away without

Many can get away with not wearing a deodorant, I for one can not, not blessed in that aspect  and stink from a mile away.  I certainly tried going without…… but simply the fact that I could not bare my own scent was not a good sign .

That being established, then the question was what deodorant to use ?. Remember in one of my previous articles on how skin absorbs all that we apply on it. Well I surely didn’t want my body absorbing anything toxic. I gear towards natural, vegan and cruelty free.

I can suggest the one I use, but do shop around as everyone has their preferences in scents  and other.

I love the light scent of the grapefruit and lavender !

I use a few of Cocooning Love’s products: www.cocooninglove.com  They are a local Company,  this way I am also supporting and giving a small local business a chance.

TRAVELS

Share the wealth

 

 

fullsizeoutput_977It is holiday season !, a time of gathering and often gift exchanging whether at a family holiday reunion, at the office or as a token of appreciation towards a teacher, a service provider or other.

We also receive  at this time of year messages via e-mail, Instagram, Facebook, flyers, billboards from large companies wanting us to keep them in mind when shopping.

I for one do shop in different venues including large surfaces but I simply wanted to put it out there to also support the local artisans. They often do not have a budget that will allow for massive advertising. Look up your local paper, often there will be a fair or other during the holidays, visit it ! often you will find that unique hand crafted item for a special someone and on the other hand it will support and encourage all the talented artisans in continuing their beautiful creations.

*Try to buy items that are environment friendly and cruelty free as well 🙂

Happy Holidays !!!
