I've been hanging onto this blog space for a long time, never quite knowing what I wanted to do with it. I knew I wanted to share information about living naturally but I didn't have a specific direction I wanted to take with the blog, so I did nothing with it at all.

Lately, though, I've found some videos and blogs by natural beauty "gurus" who have introduced me to a whole new world of skincare and cosmetics that are safe and affordable.  I'm hooked.

One of my big problems was that even though I've been "natural" for a long time, I have not been very balanced. For instance, I eat almost exclusively organic and am pretty well versed when it comes to healthy food. Makeup is another story. Since I was always too confused about which products were healthy and which were not, I'd stick with one powder foundation, one neutral eye shade, one eyeliner and mascara, and one lip gloss. That's it.  Doesn't sound too fun, does it?  But now I have been introduced to a whole new world of companies that will allow me to rekindle my interest in makeup, perfumes, and other products without sacrificing my health or irritating my extremely sensitive skin.

So, what I plan for this space is to share the ways I live naturally. I will share information on food as well as cosmetics and skin care products. One day I might show you how to make homemade deodorant or grow your own sprouts, and another day I will show you a new eye makeup collection from a company that makes incredible natural cosmetics.

Please be patient with me as I learn the ins and outs of blogging.  I only want to share my passion for living well naturally.  I am so excited to start this project, and I hope you will find some of the information I share to be valuable.
