A couple months ago, Helena sent me a sample of her new tinted moisturizer to try. I've always been a fan of BB and CC Creams - I've tried one of each and really liked using them both. Apparently, BB stands for blemish balms and CC stands for colour correcting, who knew! I was really excited to try Helena's take on an all-in-one skin care product. I was even more excited when she added in zinc so it works as sun protection as well.

I am in love with the Rebel Girls books! I bought the first one for my daughters (and son) when I saw it at our local bookstore. It is a gorgeous hardcover book and we all immediately fell in love. We were impressed by the stories and loved looking at the art.

Lisa's Review - Mask by Modern Hippie
Surprisingly, even to myself, I've never tried a Face Mask! I've brought many of them home but I've never actually taken the time to try one. Last week, I decided to change all that and brought home yet another mask, but this time I promised myself I would use it that evening, regardless of how late it got or how tired I was.

What Kind of World Do YOU Want?
Have you seen the movie The True Cost? I am so glad that people are becoming more aware of the horrible reality of cheaply made clothing. I am so glad that we are starting to understand the impact our choices have on the world. It is so true that "every time you spend money, you're casting a vote for the kind of world you want."
