Did you know in America we have strict rules against lead in our paint due to health concerns but there are no guidelines restricting heavy metals in our cosmetics that we put ON our bodies every day?! •
Health concerns with heavy metals include: neurological impact, negative affects on organs and hormones, and links to cancer.
Heavy metals are found in lipstick and all colored cosmetics- even mineral based ones. Be aware of toxic heavy metal exposure and find companies that test their products for contamination- especially for nursing mommies! •
That's why we have been researching and switching products here at the clinic. Here is our nutritionist @myfunctionallife who loves to use @Beautycounter. They have some of the strictest heavy metal standards in the industry and have over 1500 chemicals they ban from their products. She is using the new 5 Minute Face cosmetic bundle to help people switch their basic cosmetics all at once at a great price. •

Cacao, turmeric, charcoal, brown sugar, vanilla bean, and tea tree oil 🌱 No I did not make some fancy baked creation just getting my self care on with @frankandwhit ✌🏼️ ✨ Face Scrub: Fitler Square. Face Mask: Oak Lane. ✨ 🌴This round of #Whole30 challenged me to find new ways to de-stress and relax. Learning that de-stressing doesn't (always) need to include food. Just focusing on how I truly feel and what will truly help. This week was moderately stressful and I just wanted to pamper myself. So instead of feeling sad about my lack of wine I whipped up this wonderful face mask and started relaxation hour 😻 Frank and Whit donates 5% to dog rescue shelters. Now that just puts the icing on the cake 🎂
Super quick makeup for a work party tonight! I had fun, I really enjoy food.

It may be hard for city dwellers like us to slow down and cultivate a mindful living, but we can always start small. It can be as simple as allowing space in between our schedules to take a brisk walk, do some light stretches or get a coffee fix. It's all about allowing ourselves that space to restore our inner calm and clarity.
Meet Dessiree! Her and I were childhood besties and grew up across the street from each other. It was so good to catch up with her! Her main concern was covering up her red splotches and using something that is quick and easy. Well I can say we achieved both of those 🙌🏼 It completely covered up her redness and gave her a flawless, airbrushed look! Once again I couldn't stop staring when I was done 😍
We are set up at the gorgeous @serafinowines for @theveganaffair today 👋 We're here 10 - 3 in the lovely Mclaren Vale with some friends @veryvegan_sa @brwd.adl @clearmoonbyjessie @floretinebold @govitacolonnades @foragesupplyco @wrappa_reusablefoodwraps @blendmeadelaide @rawblissdesserts and more.

From my window, first come the Lorraine Lee roses, then as they fade the giant magnolia tree flowers, and then a little later the jasmine bursts open. Such a beautiful sequence of blooms. This used to happen in September but seems to be getting a touch earlier each year.
I have had ZERO internet for the past 2 days 🙈 AND my phone was not working too well! At first it drove me nuts because I have so much to do, but you know what? 💁🏼 It was actually a great thing! I was able to stop, slow down and enjoy life ❤️ I took a walk, I had uninterrupted meaningful conversations with my husband, I cooked, and I watched sunsets 🌄 Do yourself a favor and take a day or two to check out, slow down and enjoy life more 🌈
i watched Queen Of The Damned the other day and came up with this look inspired by Lestat
