When it comes to skin care, people often place more importance on skin color than skin type while making decisions about products. In fact, many companies hope that you’ll make the same mistake as well; that way, they can target their products to a particular ethnic group. These products often come at a wildly different price point or with questionable ingredients. That’s called “target marketing” and it doesn’t always make for good skin care. Continue reading
I’ve talked before about organic rosehip seed oil before and it’s myriad of benefits. One thing I love using it for is as an eye makeup remover because not only is it great at removing stubborn waterproof mascara, a little goes a long way and it also has the added benefit of being a great way to combat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. It’s a double whammy! And you know I love multitasking my products. Here’s the one I’m currently using: Continue reading

The last time I talked about making my own dishwasher soap, I suggested that you use Kool Aid (because of the citric acid). But since then, I have found an even SIMPLER DIY Dishwashing Powder for you to mix up. I actually mixed this up when I ran out of both Kool-Aid AND the Method dishwashing tabs I was using. The best part? It only takes 3 ingredients! Continue reading
I have one of these in my shower. It’s filled ¼ with castile soap, a capful of hydrogen peroxide and the rest water. When I’m done with my shower, before I turn the water off, I scrub down the walls and faucets really quick before letting the rest of the shower water wash the suds away. By the time I clean the shower on the weekend, there’s not much to do!

This is mac and cheese for one recipe is so simple, I’ve often made it when I get home from work late, or if I’m being lazy but I’m really hungry. It takes about 30 minutes from start to finish and can also be split and used as a side dish for two people. Let me know what you think!
I grew up watching my Bermudian mother and cousins repurpose old items for new ones and use everything from napkins to tea bags more than once. Rainwater was collected in wells for tapwater, glass and shells were used as tile in walls and sand from the beach was rubbed into our skin as an exfoliant. No one thought it was “green” or “eco-friendly” it’s just what you did. Any other way of operating was considered “wasteful”. Well, that same sentiment is what prompted the creators of Kuttlefish to start their company. Kuttlefish is a community and marketplace where buyers meet sellers to exchange goods made with reused, recycled, upcycled content and found objects. Continue reading
