It’s been a long week so this morning looked like a great start to open up a box of goodies I got the other day in the mail (DIY skincare ingredients). And so I made a soothing spirulina face mask to ease my way into Friday and the upcoming hectic weekend that’s still ahead. Why the green powder? Because spirulina skin benefits are amazing and because I had it lying around. I love an antioxidant kick every now and again.
Chia seed popularity took off in Europe only in the late 90s’ but for a lot of us (me included) living without the tiny seeds nowadays seems unimaginable.

Wild morning, pretties! Autumn is here and what can be better than drinking a relaxing tea in the chilly evening?

Wild morning to you! Experimenting is always a fun pastime especially when it’s too hot to go outside.

Do natural oils contain an SPF level high enough to protect our skin sufficiently? Can natural oils substitute your usual sunscreen?
Wild morning, pretties! Dry brushing is on the rise and I figured it would be a high time to try it. Do you have a brush? Do you have 5 minutes a day for yourself? Yes, it’s just that simple. And it makes my skin soft, toned, and it even reduces cellulite! I challenge you to try dry brushing; you won’t regret it!
