DIY Foaming Handsoap

I posted another DIY for The Smoothie Vegetarians! This time I decided to share a recipe (is it a recipe if you don't eat it?) for foaming handsoap. It is super easy and quick to make. You can make it in a jar if ya want. Just repurpose a foamer from a store bought soap. You can read all about it here!

How I deal with seasonal allergies

Spring is officially here and that, for me, means allergies. I have struggled my whole life with severe allergies and not just in the spring, my allergies are usually an issue for me year round. The changes in the temperature do not help - thanks climate change.

Living a zero waste life

I have always been someone that recycled and is passionate about the environment. I took an environmental science class in college and loved every minute of it. When I moved out on my own I wanted to recycle everything and do my part but as I have gotten older I realized I needed to do more.

Once I started looking into the zero waste lifestyle I was shocked at how much plastic we use daily that we don't even think about. Your toothbrush is plastic, your deodorant is in a plastic tube and so on. There is so much plastic that is being thrown away all the time and it is a serious problem. The question is how do we make the change?

I write for The Smoothie Vegetarians!

I have some exciting news! I write every other Sunday for The Smoothie Vegetarians! I am really excited to be sharing some cool things over there and the girls have been so cool. My first post went up Sunday and I love it. I chose to write about my face oil because 1.) I needed to make more anyway 2.) I think people need to see how easy it is to make your own beauty products.

Why I gave up coffee for Lent

I tend to drink a lot of coffee. I didn't used to; it just happened one day. I think it happened when I worked in an office with free coffee. I would come in every morning and enjoy a cup and I got hooked. I went without it for a while but once I realized how much I was spending on a cup from other places I broke down and got a coffee maker at home. That was my downfall.
