Link Love Friday: Reinvent Yourself

The lotus, an ancient symbol of restoration and renewal.

This week I’m really excited about something on the horizon: I’ll be offering some natural beauty advice as part of The Reinvention Project: 30 Days to a Happier, Healthier, More Inspired You. I’m so excited to join a pretty spectacular roster of amazing women who will be offering advice on all kinds of things, from stress relief and changing your mindset to finances and living your dream lifestyle. The best part? It’s free.

Here’s what I’ve been reading+enjoying this week:

  • Christy Coleman interviewed the lovely Spirit Demerson of SpirityBeautyLounge.com.
  • Whole Living is launching a 21-day detox plan that starts Jan. 3, and I’m seriously considering giving it a try. The only problem? I can’t imagine giving up my absolute favorite part of my day: my morning coffee. (Maybe I can fudge on that one little thing?!) Anyone out there want to try it with me?
  • The Green Beauty Guide shared a recipe for an active charcoal facial (doing it!) and a few DIY recipes for chapped lips.
  • At The Organic Authority, this story about how herbicides that make their way into our water supply are another cause of changing hormones in women. And you know what? I’m pretty pissed about this whole thing. Not just about the herbicides, but about how many different versions of this story I’ve read. Hormones are a powerful regulator in the human body, and when there are so many chemicals surrounding us that can change or manipulate them—from our cosmetics to the food we eat to the water we drink—it’s no wonder they have such a large impact on our bodies.

What have you read+enjoyed this week? —Aleigh

    I did Kris Carr’s Adventure Detox a couple of months ago after my book club read Crazy Sexy Diet. I’ve honestly never felt better than I did while on that detox–I had so much more energy (at least, I did after the first week. detoxes are tough at first!). The coffee was really hard for me, not just because of the caffeine but because I missed the routine so much. That said, any time I’ve taken coffee out of my routine, I’ve been amazed by how much energy I wake up with in the morning. It’s the cutting-it-out part that’s tough.

    Anyway, I definitely say you go for it! It might be tricky at first, but, in my experience, it’s totally worth it.

    (P.S. So excited to have you on board for the project!)

      Kris Carr is amazing! I’m super proud that the magazine I used to work for, Skirt!, is the same magazine that published her books. She’s so dedicated and so passionate about taking care of herself–inspiring!

      I guess if I’m going to go for the detox, I ought to go all in. It’s going to be an adventure, that’s for sure! —Aleigh

    Thanks for the chapped lip recipes. My daughter has big Angelina Jolie lips and they bare the brunt of every fall and every temperature change. Needless to say, her lips are ALWAYS chapped. Thanks for the tips.

    Also, love the name of your blog. Elegant, compelling and it makes me curious. I’m a big fan.

      Thanks, Becca! I’ll have to write something soon about where the name Indigo+Canary came from. It has a few symbolic meanings and a few things-I-love meanings, too. –Aleigh
