So, the one of my new 'things' over the last year has been health, nutrition, and organics. During the last half of 2012 I found myself reading more and more information online and learning so much. Much of it was challenging my existing beliefs, and things I had taken for granted as being healthy or safe, I was suddenly discovering were not necessarily so.
There were lots and lots of pages I was following on Facebook along this theme. All of which I am missing terribly, as they were such a wealth of information at my fingertips. One of the pages I have been following for some time is Nourished Life. The page started as a passion of Irene Falcone's, as she decided one day to rid her home of any products loaded with toxins and replace them all with non-toxic, natural and organic products. She began sharing her findings, more and more people began following the page, asking questions and wanting to know where to purchase the products from. So Irene, then, opened her own online store, Nourished Life, which stocks all the products that Irene has thoroughly researched and found to be the best for us - all free of toxins, all natural, and many using organic ingredients.
Late in the year, I was fortunate enough to become part of Irene's team at Nourished Life, and I now assist in adding products to the online store and with other projects Irene is working on. It's so wonderful to be working for a cause that is one I am truly behind and passionate about myself. I'm really looking forward to seeing Nourished Life grow this year as more and more people choose to detox their lives and start being kinder to their bodies, both with what goes onto it and inside it.
Please do check it out if this is something you are even remotely interested in! All the products are tried and tested by Irene before they make it in the store. I have also been buying products too, slowly replacing things that we were using before, and I have been super impressed with how good they are. My current favourite products are the Cosima cleanser and day cream. Such superior products and so much better than anything you would put on your skin from a department store! And lots of things are no more expensive than what you would spend on department store products either.
Here's to a more nourished life for me and my family in 2013!
(PS. This is totally not a sponsored post. In fact Irene doesn't even know I'm going to post this! This is just one of the things I'm super passionate about at the moment, and I can't NOT share about it.
PPS. I buy all my own products from NL to try, none are given to me for free. All opinions about them are my own!)
