Well, you knew eventually I had to buy the creepy South Korean Hanacure mask and review it for you. I know you've seen the Facebook ads... and seriously #WHATISGOINGON. But if there's one thing I know: South Korea is way ahead of the beauty game. Plus every celebrity on the planet from January Jones to Drew Barrymore has raved about it and the before and afters floating around the internet are just nuts. It's not that I don't believe them. It's just that I don't believe them.
You are color. Your biggest fear is living a normal life. A stifled life. A boring life. A 9-5, fluorescent filled, gray cubicle life. The kind of security the average suburbian dreams of is your slow poison. And so is the thought of being average. It brings you to the edge of insanity even more so than the thought of settling.
So I'm cutting right to the chase here, which is interesting because I've never chased anything in my life. I'm winded just thinking about it. I get the overwhelming task of figuring out HOW to start cleaning up your life. We all know diet is a big part of that, but there are TONS of ways we are inundated with toxins on a daily basis. I'm going to help you get started by prioritizing a few areas that will make a HUGE impact on your overall toxic burden.
My best green beauty discoveries of 2017 that ACTUALLY WORK - nothing sponsored, just realness as always. As I've been on this journey to regain my health for the last four years, I've slowly started to "green" different aspects of my life. I started with my diet, then home, then body and hygiene products, and now, finally.... MAKEUP. Ugh. Que giant elephant tears. (Here's a post on four other easy ways I detoxed my life.)
So.... you know how everyone has their thing? Well, my hair is my thing. I've had super long hair my whole life and it's something everyone just knows about me. I will definitely be one of those little grannies sitting on my beach glider with long, gray hair that looks totally out of place.
If you're confused as to why I'm even writing about something so personal as infertility or weird health problems, I can only assume we aren't real life friends. And also, you have never read any of my blogs before. So, let me introduce myself. I'm Brit, and I'm about to talk about my uterus now, ok?
My mom's photo albums are so ugly. I mean, they are basically a bunch of photos clinging onto black construction paper with those jenky - now yellowish - photo corners. You know the ones. And since they were assembled decades ago, everything is just barely hanging on. One aggressive page turn and we might lose great grandma Mildred bringing her first born home from the hospital. Despite all this, I've always been fascinated by these dusty, old memories.
Well, you know I'm not going to BS you. Virgin Hotels doesn't know who I am and in no way asked me to do this. I'm writing this Virgin Hotel Chicago review because I honestly HATE hotel rooms. I find them so disgusting in almost every way.
This is a very important blog for me to write because I see so many people living miserable lives and I used to be one of them. My people-pleasing-empathetic tendencies held me captive most of my life - committing to things I didn't want to do, staying in relationships and jobs longer than I should have, silencing my thoughts for fear of hurting someone's feelings.
So, probiotics. This is a confusing topic to many, and one of the most common things I get asked about. I’d say we’ve reached epidemic levels of digestive problems. Given my personal health issues stem from digestive imbalances - SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), food intolerances, and hampered immunity - I spend a lot of time researching products and studies in this arena.
