Have you ever tried oil cleansing for trouble skin?
While there are many wonderful oil cleansing products on the market, you can also simply blend one or two base oils you purchase at the health food store on your own.

We just updated our most popular safer product shopping guide!  

Did we miss any of your favorite non-toxic food storage containers?  
 
Are you sick and tired of wondering which food storage containers are truly safe?  It’s tough to tell, even when they’re labeled as “BPA-free” these days.

We’ve spent the last five years researching and updating our list of storage systems that are made with materials that have long-standing safety records, like glass, stainless steel, silicone, polypropylene and polyethylene.  We’ve been careful to confirm that no BPA-based colorants are used in any of the plastic components too.

How to Use Pinterest if You’re a Blogger
Organize your Pinterest so people will stalk your boards. via +Julie DeNeen 

CREATE BOARDS AROUND YOUR BLOG TOPICS.

"You want to add value to your blog, and Pinterest provides a way for you to build your authority on different topics. Since people can easily get sucked into the visual land of pinning, it’s easy to forget that it’s still designed for inspiration, resource, and value. That requires some strategy on you (the board developers) part. I’m going to break down how to do it for a lifestyle blogger. You should NOT make a board called MY BLOG POSTS because that is simply a repeat of your blog navigation. Instead, write down words that encapsulate your blog topics. Look at your categories and tags, and then begin creating boards based on those topics."

Read it all here: http://www.fabulousblogging.com/2014/03/how-to-use-pinterest-if-youre-a-blogger/

Pin it for later: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/259590365996158534/

Sunsets are one of my most favorite things and this one is unspeakable beautiful!
 
Macro Sunset :)
Here is a beautiful sunset captured with a 100mm macro lens. This one was shot from the southern cliff of Bali. I was trying to post this one last night, but my mobile signal was so weak, did some more editing again a few moment ago, upload it now. Have a wonderful morning everyone, I am preparing to catch, hopefully, a beautiful sunrise in a few hours from now, wish me luck :)
