Today’s Link Love is kind of all over the place—similar to the way I’m feeling this week! I’m heading to the mountains tomorrow for some fun and a much-needed change of scenery. But before I go, here are the things I’ve read this week that I wanted to share with you (and an announcement about the winner of our Osmia Organics giveaway!).
- Crunchy Betty has introduced me to the maca root. It sounds a little too good to be true, but CB does link to a few cautionary tales, so be sure to check those out if you’re considering giving it a try. (And if you do, I want to hear all about it!)
- I love this tip about taking good care of your hands over at the Clean Beauty Blog. The backs of your hands are one of the first places to show signs of aging (really!), but they’re often neglected. It’s a good reminder to give them some love.
- I’m adding ginger to my diet after reading this post on No More Dirty Looks. Do you eat or drink ginger regularly? How do you incorporate it into your diet?
- This post from Organic Authority just reinforces my avoidance of pthalates. The prevalence of parabens and pthalates—my top two avoided cosmetics ingredients—is what solidified my natural beauty obsession in the first place. Those are two substances I just don’t want floating around in my body if I can help it.
And…drumroll please…the winner of our Osmia Organics giveaway is: Manda! Look for an email from me so that Sarah and I can make sure you get the Aspen Walnut Micro Scrub you had your eye on. And be sure to let me know what you think! —Aleigh
