Hi, I’m Liz. Glad you are here!
I offer valuable resources on creating and maintaining a healthful lifestyle that works for everyone. From beauty, to wellness, to mind + soul, my passion lies in researching and writing up info that will make your wildest healthy beauty dreams come true.
Organic = pure, whole, free, green, nonchemical
Beauty = lovely, magnificent, benefit, attract
Source = obtain, supply, well, cause, foundation
That pretty much sums up my intentions with my work. Supplying green resources to help you attract magnificent health, while furthering the organic beauty cause. Providing the foundation of a whole life.
The organic beauty movement has come a long way in the past 9+ years I’ve been immersed in this biz. I aim to see it keeps on growing.
How do I plan to do that? Three ways.
Organic beauty expertise – I’ve been researching, sampling, writing, and reviewing on the subject for almost a decade
Writing skills – I love to write and share my knowledge, that’s my sweet spot
Modern take on healthy beauty – no subpar, kitchen brews going on here. I like my beauty professional and high performance. Oh ya, and nontoxic too. Yes, you can have both!
With those three components, and my network of organic beauty professionals and followers, I plan to keep the organic beauty revolution sprinting along. I dream of walking into a department store one day and seeing counter after counter of modern nontoxic beauty brands being sold, the mainstream (read, toxic) items in a dusty corner. Won’t that be great?!
When my Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 I was shocked and terrified. So I did what I usually do when I’m confused and began researching. I’ve always been into the idea of healthy lifestyle, especially once I became a Mom myself, so knew about the benefits of healthy eating. Still, I’d never put a lot of thought into what I was using on our skin. While reading a British health magazine I ran across an article on harmful cosmetic chemicals linked to serious health concerns, including breast cancer. That got my attention.
After tearing through my bathroom cupboard, I was horrified to find these ingredients in, seriously, every one of the items we used daily. If you are here, you most likely have experienced the same thing. My first move? Pack up my (then) babies and run to the nearest health food store to stock up on new personal care items. Great, until I got back home and realized most of these new products also contained the same toxic ingredients. What the heck was going on?
This was my initiation into searching for truly healthy personal care and beauty products. It quickly became clear that you could not trust a product at face value. So I continued to research. And research. And research. I got pretty good at label reading and learning to ID safe products. But all that time I had put into reading, running to different stores, and buying products online…I felt I had to share my knowledge with others so that maybe they wouldn’t have to do the same.
I couldn’t be happier doing what I do. Growing up I always loved beauty products and pouring over fashion magazines, and wondered how I could make a career out of these things. It all kind of came together when my passion for organic beauty blossomed.
My passion for nontoxic beauty + modern aesthetic + the written word has brought me here. It’s what I do and I love it. I also love coffee and slang, and would super love to have mad photog skills! I’m workin’ on that last one.
What I have learned is that you can have safe, healthy cosmetics and personal care products that are also modern and high performance. The two are not mutually exclusive. In the past this was not the case. It’s a new day for organic beauty and you truly can have it all.
I can help you too. Whether you are looking for answers to beauty questions or want to grow your following for your own organic beauty business, I’ve been there. I can help.
