If Marilyn Monroe and Dorothy Parker had a baby, who was raised by Diana Vreeland and Christopher Hitchens… Goodness, that baby would have a LOT of issues. I would be her best friend.
I love beauty and skincare and I have a whole lot of opinions about it all. And all those opinions are mine – aren’t I a lucky gal? Unless otherwise specified, all products reviewed have been bought by me. The only thing that influences my reviews of products is the effect they have on my skin/nose/wellbeing/selfie quality. I do not accept payment for reviews and I do not welcome death threats for negative ones (please don’t send me death threats). Honestly, I just want to talk about the thing I am passionate about: clean, natural, good-for-you skincare and makeup. If you are reading this blog, you probably already know about why it is important to use clean products (and if you don’t, check out my resources page), but you may be wondering which of the many beautiful products out there are worth your time and money. Or perhaps you like to discover new, natural products that work as well as, or better, as their conventional counterparts. Or, maybe still, you want to know that if I think something sucks, I will tell you. Well, friend, you have come to the right place. I hope you enjoy and please: let me know what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org. Because green beauty is a community of super-cool, passionate people and I love being a part of it.
Now that I have been around for a while, I also wanted to clarify my position on, well, money. Sorry, darlings: it’s ’bout to get uncouth up in hurr. I do not make money on this blog. Period. I do not accept payment for reviews, I do not use affiliate links and I will never use ads (I really do need to feel in control of my design aesthetic. It’s an illness). Plenty (if not most) of my favorite bloggers use their blogs as a revenue stream and their blogs are beautiful, informative and fun. I love them and wish I had the discipline and time to do the same, but, frankly, I kind of enjoy being the gentlewoman farmer of the blogging world. My posts are lengthy, well-researched and infrequent and I put all of my heart and passion in the writing I do on this blog. Sad, right? So I don’t want to feel the pressure to churn out posts simply because I owe them to someone. I’m a corporate lawyer, folks. I got enough pressure to churn things out 😉 Maybe one day this will change. But for now, consider this a passion project. I always wanted to have one…
