This article is fantastic. Easy to read, to the point and full of useful and important information.
And good news… Beautycounter’s insanely popular Protect All Over SPF 30 with 19% zinc (and obviously none of the bad stuff) is back in stock!!
I’m placing a huge order tomorrow (thank you to everyone for your patience!). Let me know if you want to get in on it for free shipping or if you’re interested in me dropping off a sample to you.
I’m sure many of you are barbecuing on this hot and sunny holiday weekend, but beware of those wire brushes you use for cleaning as they pose a health risk!
From the article:
“Wire bristles from grill brushes can snap off, land on the grate and find their way into grilled meats, public health experts warn. If ingested, these bristles can tear up a person’s throat and digestive tract, causing potentially life-threatening injuries.”
What to do:
“Toss the wire brush in favor of a safer option. Grill-cleaning stones and bricks, bristle-free brushes made of metal coil, grill brushes with nylon bristles and aluminum foil are all safe alternatives then wiped down with a cloth and carefully inspected before food is cooked.”
Happy Memorial Day Weekend! ????

Love this article from Well & Good. Educate yourself about the do’s and don’t’s of sunscreen! Your life could literally depend on it!
Beautycounter gets another awesome shout out and good news – our sunscreen is back in stock VERY soon. Let me know if you want to get in on my order. I slathered it all over myself and my kids today and I honestly can’t say enough about this stuff. It’s by far and away the best sunscreen I’ve ever used. If you want a sample let me know ???
Good news for raspberry lovers .. I think I’ll add them to my morning breakfast sometimes now
This article details the bipartisan bill that was introduced that would require the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to evaluate the chemicals in personal care products for the first time ever. The FDA would have authority to set exposure limits, require warning labels and even recall products deemed unsafe. The Personal Care Products Safety Act is expected to receive a hearing in June and proves that progress is not only possible, but that it’s finally happening! This is exactly why Beautycounter sent 100 consultants to DC and while it has a long way to go before it becomes a law it is certainly progress and should be celebrated ??
Ok, I have a confession to make – I have been off the rails! I have been eating so terribly and, despite it being the start of my birthday week, it’s time to reign it in. I need something big to kickstart a much needed change in behavior and thought process and as such I have decided to take the 7 day water challenge. This means I have to drink 1 gallon of water each day for a week. If it goes well I may even extend it to 30 days, but I don’t want to get ahead of myself just yet ?
I am thinking of infusing my water with fruit some of the time to help make it a little easier. I have attached some “spa water” ideas as well as some other helpful images in case you want to join me.
Will you take the challenge with me?
White rice is actually no worse for you than brown and is even better for you if you have gastro issues. Read this article to learn why.
We’ve been living a lie! ?
So apparently everyone found out how amazing Beautycounter’s sunscreen is and there was a massive surge in sales that wiped out supplies and we are out of stock. I’m sure amazing write ups in Allure and the like had something to do with this. Don’t worry!! It comes back in stock next week! Lmk if you want me to add you to the wait list ?
Also, check out this new EWG Sun Safety article to find out why its so important to be protected!
This is pretty huge! I love good news to start off the weekend right! Props to Michelle Obama! ??????
Excerpt from the article: “the label overhaul features a larger font size for the calorie count, more realistic serving sizes (a pint of ice cream has three servings now, not four), “and most important of all, this label will tell you how much sugar in your snack was added during processing and how much came from ingredients like fruit,” Obama said. “You will no longer need a microscope, a calculator, or a degree in nutrition to figure out whether the food you’re buying is actually good for our kids.”
