I have quite the mixture to talk to you about today! I'm really excited about what I've been working on lately and can't wait to share everything with you!
I have been trying for a while to be more natural and make some of my own things as I'm sure you have noticed from reading my posts, but after reading this post on mascara's I have been on a roll to detox all of my toiletries. Since I'm a stay at home mom my plan is to replace those toxic toiletries with homemade ones. I hope that you will stick around to see what recipes I find and try out, I will probably have to go through a few of each to find something that works and that I like, but I'm willing to put the effort in if it means that my family will be healthier.
As you can see above I started with changing out my mascara. I used to use Loreal's Voluminus Carbon Black mascara, but have since moved on to Tarte's lights-camera-lashes-mascara. I have found these to be the major differences: Loreal's is clumpy, wet and messy, I have to let it dry before I can even blink my eyes, it is also difficult to wash off. Tarte's is clean, smooth, dry's fast and you can still build it up to get a more dramatic finish, it is also easier to wash off. So, needless to say I'm very happy with my first detox!
The second thing that I have been all consumed with has been Busy Bags! My daughter is at the perfect age for these and they make me so happy since I finally found something that will occupy her for a little while! My sister told me about them and after looking at a few ideas online I've been able to come up with a few of my own as well as copying a few and can't wait to share them with you! You can check out a few here and here.
I am planning to share one detoxing post every Thursday and one Busy Bag post every Tuesday, until I run out of ideas or move on to something else! I really hope that you will enjoy these post's, tell your friends about them and keep visiting and detoxing your cupboards with me!
