Our house is what you might call light green. Actually, our house is literally a light mossy green color but what I meant is we are light green when it comes to being ecofriendly, reducing our impact on the planet and staying away from harsh chemicals. It’s important to me to make responsible decisions about what we put in and on our bodies, but as a busy mom with a limited budget some things get ranked higher than others. On one hand, it’s easy to choose household cleaning products that are all-natural and eco-conscious, especially because I know someone is going to put their mouth on every single surface in my house at some point. On the other hand, if my kids want to eat their weight in clementines and I can’t find organically grown clementines, that’s not a fight I’m willing to have. I recycle every recyclable that passes through my door but I’m not willing to totally give up paper towels. Light green.

Luckily, when it comes to what I – I mean SANTA – put in the stockings we have decades of tradition to fall back on.

In the past few weeks I added a little tinted moisturizer to even out some sun spots but the craziest I EVER get is eye shadow. No blush, no bronzer, no eyeliner, never any lipstick. I mean, if I’m not even bothering to brush and dry my hair before heading to Target I’m definitely not spending more than 30 seconds on my face. (more…)
