Showing Love to Friends with a Chronic Illness

Showing Love to Friends with a Chronic Illness

by Pure Beauty Contributor February 20, 2017 0 Comments

Chronic Illness can be challenging, both for those who live with it and for those around them. It comes with cancelled plans, awkward moments, and frustrations for both parties of a friendship. It takes special friends to truly understand all that chronic illness encompasses, but to those of us who live with those illesses the friend who tries to understand is irreplacable. Showing love to your friends with chronic illness can be frustrating sometimes, but can mean the world to them.

Invitation to Self Love

Invitation to Self Love

by Inda Luciano February 11, 2017 0 Comments

You are invited to love yourself so deeply, take such good care of yourself, that others can see how deeply you deserve to be loved. Especially to love the not so likable parts, even at times when you don’t feel loved so much by others. Self love is not about being selfish, but exactly the opposite. It’s about taking good care of ourselves so that we can offer the best us to the world. As cliché as the saying “you have to love yourself first before you can deeply love others” sounds, it makes sense that the more things we accept and learn to love in ourselves – the better we feel in our skins, perfect or not – the more things we’ll accept and learn to love in others.

Nourishing Self-Care Rituals to Show Yourself Some Love

Nourishing Self-Care Rituals to Show Yourself Some Love

by Traci Street February 02, 2017 0 Comments

As we continue our journey into this new year of embracing wellness and positivity, let's take inventory of our current self-care situation. How many things do you do in a day, or even a week, that are just for you? Hopefully you can list at least a couple, if not more. But if you're in a busy season of life, whether caring for young children, working in a challenging career field, caring for sick relatives - or all of the above - self-care may sound like a distant memory; a vague idea that sounds nice in theory but holds no place in your current reality. Let us encourage you today with some simple, practical ideas for implementing your own nourishing self-care rituals into your routine and making them work for you:

Moving Forward When We Feel Stuck

Moving Forward When We Feel Stuck

by Traci Street January 30, 2017 0 Comments

What happens when we set our intentions to mindfully move forward and let go of a negative habit or belief, only to find ourselves pulled back toward the thing we declared we were ready to let go only a few days (or even minutes) later? This feeling of being stuck does not indicate that we are not strong enough or not serious about moving forward to embrace better things. It's simply an indication that we are human, and that sustainable change will not happen overnight.

Let Go of Self-Judgment to Embrace Self-Love

Let Go of Self-Judgment to Embrace Self-Love

by Traci Street January 23, 2017 0 Comments

As we continue our journey of letting go of negativity and unneeded excess in the new year, may we become more aware of our internal dialogues and the judgments we place on ourselves. Self-judgment is sneaky and insidious; we sometimes don't even notice when we are judging ourselves. But a critical inner voice that is constantly bossing us around, stating that our thoughts and feelings are "good" or "bad", and telling us what we "should" and "should not" think can wreak havoc on our self concept and limit our ability to truly love ourselves well.

LOVING YOUR BODY

LOVING YOUR BODY

by Tailar Murphy January 19, 2017 0 Comments

The desire to feel better, have more energy, and take care of our bodies is a beautiful start to a life-long journey of health; however, the resolutions are often much more focused on how we can look like the model on the magazine, not on how we want to feel.  Contrary to what society wants us to believe, resolutions should never be about changing ourselves.  We are all born unique individuals with unique qualities to offer the world, and we should focus on embracing those beautiful gifts and using them to positively impact the world.  An intention or resolution should be about discovering our passions, pruning things in our lives that do not serve us, and unleashing our potential to live messy, imperfect, but purposeful lives.

Protecting Skin from Winter Weather

by Traci Street December 29, 2016 0 Comments

Ahh, winter. Hot cocoa by the fire, walks in winter wonderlands, and…dry, flaky skin? If winter weather plagues your skin with uncomfortable dryness, do yourself a favor and try out some of these protective tips:
 
Moisturize consistently. The best way to prevent dry, rough skin is to stop if before it starts. Even if your skin doesn’t appear chapped and dry, don’t get lazy with the moisturizer - especially for areas that are frequently exposed to to cold air, like hands. Apply moisturizer right before going to bed and throughout the day as needed for maximum benefits. For all-over moisture, we love C & Co. Body Balm, Lo and Behold Naturals Hand Salveand Herbivore Jasmine Body Oil. For face, try C & Co. Moisturizer or Acure Day and Night Cream.

Wishing You a Mindful, Joyful Christmas

by Traci Street December 23, 2016 0 Comments

Christmas weekend is upon us, friends! This holiday means many things to many people. For some, it is a joyful celebration of friends, food and family. For others, it signifies a cornerstone of their faith tradition and the relationship to God they build their lives around.

Beauties, I have a confession to make. For much of my life, I have been a wrapping paper junkie. I love choosing just the right gifts for my friends and family during holidays and birthdays, and one of my favorite parts of the gifting process is selecting just the right gift packaging to complement my finds.

Using a couple rolls of wrapping paper and a few disposable bows each year may not seem like much, but consider these statistics on Holiday Waste Prevention from Stanford University:
