Link Love: The Week of Love

Some love-ly links to share for the week of love!

6 Ways Kissing Makes You Stronger, from Reader’s Digest.

Hot Water + ACV = Metabolism booster? (I am already testing this one out: and it turns out hot water, even just on its own, is very soothing and energizing—helping me cut back on my mid-afternoon caffeine fix.)

Saffron Rouge has a great post about the benefits of natural mascaras. (Side note: I’m still loving my Living Nature Gentle Makeup Remover.)

The state of California is classifying BPA as a “reproductive hazard,” and I’m thrilled. But there’s more to the story…scan to the end of this page for a little nugget about why you might need to be skeptical of some “BPA-free” claims.

Jolene has a great recipe for “skin juice” a la the gorgeous Naomi Watts.

Finally, this op-ed in The New York Times is generating a lot of buzz. Here’s a snippet:

“Well, the ever-popular formaldehyde — used in nail polish, shampoo, soap and hair straighteners — frequently appears on ingredient lists (sometimes disguised as “formalin”); it’s a known carcinogen. So is dioxane, which rarely appears on labels because it’s not an intentionally added ingredient but a byproduct of manufacturing. (It’s found, for example, in bubble bath.) Some 400 hair dyes and lipsticks contain lead. (In small amounts, but you might not want to kiss your kids if you’re wearing lead-tainted lipstick.) The endocrine disrupters known as phthalates were found by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in pretty much everyone.”

Happy Friday, everyone! Hope you have plans for a fantastic weekend. —Aleigh

Link Love Friday: Ice Cold

Today is sleety and cold in normally-blue-skied Charlotte, but I’m happy to have settled in with a dog on my feet and some great links to share.

Ever wondered what those little seals on your natural and organic cosmetics actually mean?  This (long but good!) post does a great job of decoding/deciphering. (Scroll to the bottom if you want to get straight to the details.)

Hormone imbalances can have a big impact on your body (including your skin, weight, hair, and more)…and Wellness Mama put together a great list of easy ways to help your hormones get back to where they should be. (That pesky coffee conundrum pops up again…)

Stories like this one from the New York Times make me a little crazy: one woman’s experiences with a three-day BPA detox. (The crazy part isn’t that she tried to detox from BPA. The crazy part is just how much she had to change her daily routine in order to do it.)

If you’re in NYC, mark your calendar for Feb. 7: Jolene is hosting what sounds like an amazing Beauty Food Supper Club event.

Luckily everything around here isn’t frozen: these adorable blooms popped open on my Meyer lemon tree today and they smell amazing. Happy Friday, everyone!
