Trying Not to Kill the World.


I am a person with an enormous conscious so hearing bad things about products I use daily is a little upsetting to me. For a while I have been using Simple Products, but then I found out that there’s still a good number of chemicals in them, and the exfoliator has the little plastic beads that are killing ocean creatures which is bad and those things make me feel like I’m not treating the world or myself like the best I should be.

This lead to me to Lush. Everything is made with natural ingredients and is cruelty free. These products make me feel like I’m doing better for the world. However, they also make me feel like a hypocrite.  I feel like I need to switch everything I use and investigate every product I own to make sure I’m not killing the environment, that’s expensive my friends, very, very expensive.

How does it work? Using all natural products, why i it so expensive? I feel like things found in nature should not be so expensive. It just seems crazy to me. I wish I could afford to go all out with this, but I guess for now it’ll be piece by piece and I will live with my guilty conscious of killing our precious world. However, I do believe that this is something that everyone should try and do so that we aren’t all killing the world, something to consider.

Please let me know if you know of any affordable organic/cruelty free beauty products! I would love to research more and more. Also, let me know your own thoughts and opinions on the subject at hand!



Time to Grow Up :(

So today I came to the unfortunate conclusion that it is time to grow up.  I mean yes, I still am a freshman and college and yes I still have four years to go, however I am nineteen  years old and it’s time to start acting like I have my shit together.  Now I know most people start this at the beginning of the year and fail by October, well HA because I’m starting in October and I’m determined not to fail.  I want to dress nicer, and do my make up more, that way by the time I graduate I will  be used to it and I’ll do it for work in shit like that. So today I was going out and I bought make up! :O For those of you who know me- which none of you really do, this is a huge step because I never actually wear make up. I know that this is an odd time in my life to start things like this, but I don’t really know, like I just feel like I should be trying harder. I guess I always kind of complain that people don’t really pay attention to me, and maybe I think they will if I look nicer. But it’s true, the nicer you look the more attention people will pay you.  Now this is not to say I will not be putting my yoga pants to rest- no, I will still wear those just not everyday.  I’ll wear real bras rather than the simple sport ones I typically wear. I hope that people will start to take me more seriously, I  should’ve taken college as a fresh start from the beginning of the year, but I still have my chance now. So here’s to the fresh new (hopefully pretty) start of Mary.
