If you’re looking for a good natural makeup remover – I have just the recipe for you. It’s made from plant oils, whole food that nourishes your skin and does the job of removing makeup, dirt and excess oils.
It’s simple. It takes minutes to make, and lasts for well over 6 months! But don’t underestimate its simplicity – I think it works better than most of what you can buy out there. It wipes away waterproof eyeliner, mascara – the works!
Now, normally, I’d snap a picture and give you the recipe. But this time I’ve done something completely different and I’ve posted a video on YouTube!
It’s been a long-time dream to produce videos for you – to express myself creatively in a different medium. To capture a natural lifestyle in motion – to share recipes, people and places that inspire me…
But I was scared...
So I stayed where I’m comfortable – behind the camera. I kept watching other people’s videos thinking, I wish I could do that, but it’s too hard. I’ll look silly. I can’t do it…
We all have that voice that tells us we can’t do something. Especially the big, scary things we want to do. What a drag!
There comes a point when the idea of putting off the things that you want in life, becomes harder, scarier and more uncomfortable than the fears that hold you back from trying.
That’s when you say, screw it! I’m not going to make excuses or decisions based on fear. I have a vision for my life – and even if it doesn’t work out the way I expect – I’ll be the better for trying!
It’s not easy to do it alone. That’s why I’m grateful for the people around me – like Liv Lo and Rani who worked with me to make the video and made me feel like, You know what? I can do this.

If there is something that you want in life, you must surround yourself with people who will lift you up, who will support you and push you further than you think you’re capable – so you can do the things that you want for yourself.
If living a connected, natural, conscious life draws you in – I’m here to tell you that you can do it. The hard part is not trying.
It reminds me of a quote that I read from Gandhi, where he said “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
Creating a life that matches your values, your vision – it takes time and energy. You have to stretch yourself, work at it and be willing to make mistakes… But we wouldn’t want it any other way. Because on the other side, is an incredible sense of fulfilment.
Natural beauty has a ripple effect that changes your skin, your health, the people around you, our planet and the animals that we share it with. It’s filled with self-love and confidence – when you wear natural beauty, you feel different. You feel empowered, connected and beautiful.
I have no doubt that my journey of natural beauty led me to doing the big, scary beautiful things that I do today.
I’m driven to share this with you. This recipe is more than just a makeup remover. Every time you use it, you’ll remember what you’re about – what matters to you. And I’m telling you – that has a sneaky way of changing the way you feel and what you do.
Whew! That was a big intro! I guess I just wanted you to know where I’m coming from, and what this video really means.
I hope you enjoy it!
