My New Book! A Year of Natural Health & Beauty: 52 Easy, Frugal, Natural Ideas to Enhance Your Mind, Body, and Spirit

About the Book

Many of you have already been following along for a while; several of you are also new followers who reached this blog via some of my natural health and beauty tips. To all of you, hello and welcome!

In 2012, I created a yearlong blog project, in which I posted a new tip each week, right here on this blog. All the tips included were easy, frugal, and natural. These included recipes for homemade beauty items plus tips on nutrition, exercise, and stress relief.

Well, over the last couple of years, several readers asked me to consolidate the tips into a book, so I did!  If you have read and enjoyed one or more of my tips, please consider buying my book! It lists all 52 simple, frugal, natural tips in an easy-to-read format PLUS it includes a whole bunch of extra information and bonus tips!!

The book is available as a digital download that you can read on your Kindle, Nook, iPad, iPhone, ePub reader, and browser. It’s also available as a paperback on Amazon and Createspace!

Thanks for your interest and I hope you stick around for more fun stuff here on my blog :-)

Pixie Makeover: Women’s Short Haircut

Here’s a fun and chic haircut I did last week! She was ready to go short again and was thrilled with the result :-)

Partial Highlights Using High-Lift Tint

I was thrilled to work on my gorgeous model’s long, virgin hair! I gave her some very natural-looking highlights, using high-lift tint instead of bleach, with foils. She was thrilled with the summery results, but not as much as I was! :-) No filter, as always!

Bob Haircuts: Classic & Graduated

I’ve been working on perfecting my bobs recently! Here are a few that I’ve done, including two in which my client started with waist-length hair and had me cut it to chin-length! These are all done in the classic Vidal Sassoon style, a very technical and precise method of cutting. I could do these all day! :-)

Rich Chocolate Layers

Here’s a gorgeous transformation I did today on my model. Cut off about 2 inches and added long, Victoria’s Secret layers, then gave her a super-shiny, rich, chocolate brown all over to even up her color and make everything luscious and blended. No filter!
