Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

The Story of Cosmetics

If you liked The Story of Stuff, the creators of that video have just released The Story of Cosmetics, a short video (8 minutes) explaining all the nasties you will find in your personal care products.

Make sure you check it out and, more importantly, make sure you start checking your product labels!

It is terrifying what kinds of ingredients widely used cosmetics contain and the long term effects that they can have.

But my confession is that I still use prescription acne topicals daily. I have tried every natural method and nothing has worked.

I am in a constant internal struggle between having clear skin and using harmful chemicals or having horrible skin, being depressed, and being free from the chemicals.

Right now, the chemicals unfortunately win.
