Petal & Post is seriously one of my absolute favorite one-stop online shops (read why in detail here), so I was really excited when founder, Jamie MacLean asked me to test out a new brand she’d soon be stocking. Of course, I couldn’t say no! 😉
Green People was first conceived in 1994 when mother (and founder) Charlotte Vohtz was searching for natural products to help her daughter’s multiple skin allergies and eczema. Finding nothing that was truly natural, she began creating her own products and was amazed by the results. After years of product research and development, Green People was officially born in 1997.
Hey loves! Today I wanted to share a super awesome deal going on at one of my fave one stop shops, The Choosy Chick! Since it is their Anniversary, to celebrate they are offering a very generous and amazing goodie bag with any $85 purchase, and believe me you don’t want to miss out on this!
Here is a rundown of what’s inside:
Awhile ago on my Instagram, I made a comment about hating to apply body lotion. Yeeeaaah, forget I said that.. Nubian Heritage has completely changed how I feel about that!
With humble beginnings, that began 20 years ago on the streets of Harlem, co-founders Richelieu Dennis, Nyema Tubman & Mary Dennis created a brand that brought the healing traditions of African Black Soap and Shea Butter to their community.
Switching to Green Beauty doesn’t mean that you have to spend a fortune on good quality products, nor does it mean that you have to sacrifice effectiveness. One of the things that I love to do is scour the product world for brands that not only meet all of my “green & clean” criteria, but that are affordable for the average person.
Acne is probably one of the most frustrating things that can happen to a person’s skin, but when you are 45 and still breaking out, it’s beyond annoying (not to mention embarrassing and confidence zapping)!
Because of my chronic skin issues, I am constantly searching for products that can help alleviate, if not get rid of this annoyance. And as a green beauty blogger, I am fortunate to be able to test products I may not find on my own, and today I want to share a brand I recently connected with and some products I have been using. 🙂
Because Friday is “National Dog Day” and also because animals are such an important part of my life, I wanted to take a moment to share this amazing makeup bag created by green beauty brand, Jane Iredale.
Designed by Jane herself and featuring her own pup, Cookie, this limited edition bag is not only the perfect vehicle to carry all of your green beauty products, but a portion of each bag sold will be donated to the Berkshire Humane Society, a local shelter that improves the lives of pets awaiting adoption. 🙂
Our animal friends deserve the best care that we can give, so why not help them out and get a cute bag at the same time? 😉
Price – $18
Peace & love,

This post may seem a bit “off topic”, as it isn’t about green beauty or green living. But as I am having a very difficult time coping with a very recent and sudden loss, I felt the only way to purge some of this sorrow was to write about it and share it. Catharsis and all that.
It’s no secret to anyone who knows me, reads my blog or follows me on social media that I am a very proud and doting animal mommy. I have four cats (all sisters), two guinea pigs (brothers) and now, as of today, 9 parakeets (we started with 2 and 2 turned into 14).
