Clean Beauty Catch-up

I’m still here!  This past month has been a whirlwind.  We finally moved into our new home, we didn’t have internet for 3 WEEKS, I was sick twice, and Woody has been undergoing lots of physical therapy (more on that below).  BUT, I haven’t forgotten about you.  In fact, I’m very happy to be back.  First, let’s…

Pregnancy-Safe Skincare

There is so much controversy these days about what is truly safe to use/take/do during pregnancy.  I personally find it so strange that doctors in the US will tell a woman that Cheetos are safer to eat than an ounce of organic unpasteurized goat cheese, (I understand the risks of listeria, but still…) but if there is…
