Link Love: Rise and Shine

I’m an early riser. I haven’t always been a morning person, but for the past several years, I’ve simply just been unable to sleep in. It started with a desire to get in an hour or two of writing or researching or brainstorming or reading before heading to the office. Now, I feel like I’ve discovered the most beautiful part of the day—those lovely, quiet morning hours in which I can read, sip on my morning cup of coffee, and yes, do a little work—but mostly just gently enter a new day.

My morning habit means I rarely stay up super-late anymore, but I can’t imagine my life without my calming, meditative morning hours—which is why I love the lead story in today’s Link Love Friday post: 8 Ways to Wake Up Happy, from Prevention.

Here are the other things I’ve been reading+enjoying lately. Happy almost weekend! —Aleigh

More information on the dairy + sugar = acne debate.

There were definitely some news-to-me items on this list of 20 things you didn’t know you could recycle.

From MindBodyGreen, 8 things you should always buy.

CV Skinlabs has launched a new campaign to help get their gentle, natural products into cancer treatment centers and hospitals. I always love hearing about how natural skincare companies come to be—Britta’s story is really inspiring.

Link Love Friday: Spring?

This week I’m really longing for spring. Punxsutawney Phil was wrong, wrong, wrong this year, at least in Charlotte, where it’s been much colder than usual for this time of year. (Although apparently, it’s not Phil’s fault…) Here are some links I’ve collected to help take your mind off this early spring chill. Enjoy! —Aleigh

5 Signs Your Hormones Are Out of Whack, from MindBodyGreen. (Hormones play a huge role in healthy skin, hair, and nails—and your overall health.)

5 Foods That Make Your Skin Glow. I’m thinking these five things could make for one potent beautifying salad.

I’m curious about Burt’s Bees new line of natural pet care products, which will be out next month.

A few of Organic Authority’s 6 Natural Fever Treatments sound a little crazy (garlic foot paste and egg white socks?!). Have you ever tried these?

GOOD partnered with Naked Juice to put together this great infographic about staying healthy in the workplace…and now I’m resolved to do more stretching at work.

Link Love: Winter

I’m long overdue for a Link Love post—especially since I’ve been hoarding so many great links to share! Here’s what I’ve been reading + enjoying lately:

According to this story in the New York Times, when you feel lonely, your skin is literally colder. Which explains why a warm cup of tea or coffee is so comforting.

This has been making the rounds, but if you haven’t seen it yet, a recent study links drinking soda with a higher risk of depression.

A bummer: Fig+Sage has ended their lovely natural beauty blog. I hope they keep the archives up for a while, because they’re a great resource. (And I wish them the best!)

I’ve been following along (although haven’t yet attempted) Bon Appetit’s 2013 Food Lover’s Cleanse, but it looks delicious. And I think I may try it. Pomegranate walnut oatmeal for breakfast? Sign me up.

Love this, from MindBodyGreen: 10 Easy Ways to Slow the Aging Process. Good advice here!

More great advice, this time from No More Dirty Looks: 4 Ways To Care For Your Hands (And Why You Should Want To). Brilliant and important.

What great things have you read + enjoyed lately? —Aleigh

Link Love Friday: Colorado!

Me, c. 2001, on a backpacking trip over the continental divide in Colorado.

Next week, Ian and I are heading to Denver. I haven’t been to Colorado in more than 10 years (time flies!), and I’m psyched. I’m sure the city has changed a lot over the past decade, and I’m hoping to check out some natural beauty shops and maybe even a spa/salon while I’m there. (Including a visit to meet the lovely Sarah Villafranco of Osmia Organics in person. Yay!) If you have suggestions of places I should check out while I’m there, please share!


Here’s what else I’ve been thinking about this week:
