A Cleaner Life is a Happier Life

my picks for safer beauty and a cleaner home

Remember when Mom said, “if you can’t pronounce the ingredients, you shouldn’t eat it”? Well, I believe that applies to what we put on our bodies, not just in them.

Disclaimer: I am by no means the most all-natural, green, organic gal out there and I will never claim to be. (The proof is in the pudding — literally. See the entire section of this blog devoted to sweet treats.)

I’m just a girl taking small steps to make daily changes that will have a big impact on my health and well-being. Will I ever become totally and completely clean? Honestly, probably not. But I believe that by actively seeking out and using safe alternatives to the chemicals that appear in my everyday life, I will help myself both today and in the long-run. In treating my physical body better, I worry less and have more peace of mind. And every part of my life in which I can create peace of mind carves out more space and energy to better other areas.

There is no change too small, and we have to start somewhere. Here’s to feeling like a million bucks, without using a million chemicals.
