I like to call her the goddess of Indie Beauty, Julie Clark's collection of natural and effective skin care products is by far one of the best in the country. The first time I tried Province Apothecary (over 3 years ago now) I was hooked. I am a sucker for scent and each one of her products elicits a mood and a feeling based solely on a scent.
C’est Magnifique! That's what I think of when I think of Frech women. Don't they seem to get everything right? Effortless fashion, glowing skin, just makes me swoon. Now I love fashion like any girl but am also very aware of its impact both on the chemicals used in makeup and the culture of fast fashion. But that's not what this blog is about. Paris Fashion Week just wrapped up and I noticed a few trends that we can look forward to this summer are ya ready? Qui!
I’ve mixed up a ton of body scrubs in my kitchen, so many that my husband doesn’t know if I’m making dinner or cooking up a fabulous DIY recipe. This is by far one of my fav’s.

I don’t remember the exact moment, but I do remember the (putrid) smell of that white foaming cream, though.
Today, I have great news. The fabulous Margot over at thechoosychick.com has the solution to your (possible) green beauty conundrum. How do I transition? It’s the hardest part and she has done all the hard work for you. YAY! I caught up with this eco-warrior to get the down-low on her Green Beauty Starter Bag (which BTW would make a fabulous #MotherDay gift!)
