Juicing It Up With Juice Maids


This President’s Day Weekend I did a juice cleanse courtesy of the lovely ladies at Juice Maids.  Their cold-pressed juices are made with organic farmer’s market produce and come in reusable (and adorable!) glass mason jars, nestled snugly in a reusable basket or crate.  Along with a la carte options and weekly crates, Juice Maids offers three “custom cleanses”:... Read More

Prem Soaps: With Love from Brooklyn


I got a great box of soaps and candles last week from Prem Soaps, a new Brooklyn-based company started by a vegetarian and two vegans.  They make all the products in their kitchen using only raw, organic, and 100% vegan, cruelty-free ingredients.  First of all, let me just say, wow did that box smell amazing when I opened it!  Their list of ingredients are good enough to... Read More

Win a Vegan Sunless Tanning Package from Spray di Sole! – Contest Closed

Out of all the great vegan products featured in this month’s issue of Coco Eco Magazine (that I also happened to guest edit), Pai Skincare was the one I was most excited to try.  A) Because it is formulated for ultra-sensitive skin (hello, that’s me), B) Natalie Portman’s a fan and I love her, and C) the simple organic ingredients (stuff like macadamia nut oil,... Read More
