For quite some time now, I've been expressing my desire to have an in-loft herb garden, and while out shopping a few weeks back, I happened upon mini herb kits that came inside of mason jars. I had a couple left over from when I started storing herbs for the 303 Face | Body SubtleTEAS herbal tea line, and yesterday morning, (a day after National Gardening Day) I was finally able to plant the seeds.
A few weeks back, I'd gone over to our local gardening store here in the heart of the city, Urban Roots, to check on what sort of seed packets that were available. I decided on Marigold Signet (Lemon/Tangerine Gems), Basil (Sweet Thai), Lavender (English), and English Thyme.
There are so many things I love about our loft, and one of those is the wonderfully tall windows. Although I oftentimes miss having a balcony, I love the amount of light that we get in the loft, rain or shine.. and hope that it will be perfect in helping these awesome little herb...
Such an extreme, snow filled winter.. (this is sarcasm.) However, after a couple of months in boots, layered clothing and beanies, I'm ready for stepping out of the house in a pair of gladiator sandals and a sundress.
Spring serves as a natural stimulant for me. Beginning the morning with the sweet harmony of birds, gentle daylight caressing your eyelids, bringing you to your feet, heading out for an early walk before 6a.

With 303 Face | Body, I'm constantly learning about natural healing butters and herbs for the products, and the study of this is starting to marry with my love of gemstones, caring for various plants, having a living space filled with healthy aromatic blends, healing sounds (flute, water, birds) being played throughout the lo...
Yes.. It's April Fool's Day, but I've got a rather warped since of humor, so my pranks are a little intense. Also.. if people know that its April Fool's Day, you're not going to trick them. That being said let's focus on something else that's fantastic about the beginning of April..
Back on Earth Day in April 1990, my 6th grade class planted a tree, and I just thought it was the most awesome and wonderful thing, and being a nature loving girl, I love what Earth Day (and Earth Month) is about, and how it makes me feel.
It's all about awareness and appreciation of our planet. See liter at your neighborhood park and hate it? Pick it up. Want to do your part to help our air quality? Plant a tree or two.. or four. No aerosol.. ever. There are a myriad of things you can do daily.
What is spectacular about Earth Month is that it brings more attention to Green Living and doing our part, but it HAS to be a 24/7 365 way of life.. and it isn't hard at all. I...
