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: Happy March!

Big thanks to everyone who has already filled out the 2013 Indigo+Canary Reader Survey! It’ll be up until March 9—I’ll randomly select a winner for the $25 Spirit Beauty Lounge gift card on March 10, and announce the winner here.

In the meantime, I have some great links to share:

There’s a good list of BPA-free canned goods and baby formula at the end of this post from EWG.

I’m loving this slideshow of two-minute tricks that boost your health from Well+Good NYC. (Dry brushing, yes!)

I really appreciate this post on No More Dirty Looks: making choices about what’s “clean enough” for you. (Reminds me a little of this post from last summer.)

I’m definitely going to make this citrus surface cleanser from Organic Authority. Look out, countertops!

Good information from Prevention: the best time of day to take your meds. (And I’d also like to test out these all-natural perfumes…)

Link Love: Gift Guide Coming!

Things have been a little quiet over here at Indigo+Canary lately—one big reason is that I’ve been working on our second annual Holiday Gift Guide. It’s coming (and soon!), but in the meantime, here are a few great links for you to explore.

  • From Organic Authority: low exposure to this chemical fungicide has been linked to obesity.
  • My friend Rosie wrote this beautiful post about fear and how it can hold us back.
  • Starre Vartan’s post about these Tatcha Polishing Powders has me intrigued. Have you tried any of them?
  • This post from Siobhan at No More Dirty Looks makes me think I ought to try aromatherapy. Do you incorporate aromatherapy into your daily life?
Happy Monday, everyone! Here’s to a fantastic week. —Aleigh

Link Love (and our Osmia Organics winner!)

Ahhh. I can't wait to get to the mountains this weekend!

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
