"Healthy Obsessions" are the things I'm loving the most for the current month. They are all "healthy" products and include fashion, natural beauty, food and home products. I figure if I'm loving them you probably will too!
Matt & Nat is a great Canadian company that makes gorgeous vegan handbags...and now they make gorgeous vegan shoes! I am loving these rich brown ankle boots - the perfect transition piece into Fall - they work with dresses, skinny jeans or even with a cuffed boyfriend pant and a little ankle peeking out!
"No animals were hurt making this shoe" is the quote on the inside of the boots. Not only do they look great they are eco and animal friendly.
They have a full line of boots including flats, heels and rain in different colours. They also have cute flats, oxfords and sneakers.
You can check out all of thier shoes - and their great handbags at Matt & Nat. I can gurantee this won't be my only pair from them this season!
I have tried and tested my fair share of natural deodorants and I have found a few good ones - however PiperWai is hands down the best one I've ever used. Not only did it keep me smelling fresh it also kept me dry - even during a tough yoga class and a crazy hot day on the golf course! Dryness was something I have found wasn't as effective with other natural deodorants.
How does it work?
"PiperWai’s formula uses activated charcoal which can absorb 1,000x its own weight in moisture, forming an absorbent shield between your skin and your shirt. It keeps you dry and stain-free, even through workouts, all without plugging your sweat glands like traditional antiperspirant."
It also contains theraputic grade essential oils to keep you smelling fresh and is made with organic coconut oil and pure vitamin E so it doesn't cause any irritation and works well on sensitive skin.
I use this organic tea on busy mornings in place of lemon water. It contains organic aniseed, fennel and cardamom and a hint of licorice. It tastes amazing and is very cleansing for the liver and kidneys.
You can buy it at Whole Foods, Goodness Me or most likely any health food store. Learn more about the awesome organic herbs in this tea at Pukka.
This oil is perfect going into Fall with back to school and chilly breezes giving way to colds and flu.
It is an all natural oil that fights germs and viruses. Its easy to use - you simply roll a little on your throat and chest. I do it before bed but you can do it anytime. Its also perfect for travelling - roll some on before a flight and stash it in your purse or carry on bag.
You can find it at a Saje Retail location - find one near you at Saje.
I honestly have one of these in my hair right now while writing this post! Why do I love them? They don't crease your hair so you can go from office or workout straight to dinner with no line or crease from your ponytail, they are gentle on your hair keeping it from breaking, they have a strong grip and they look nice in your hair.
Yes perhaps they look like you could carry your keys on them...but trust me - once you try them you will be hooked. They are available in different colours to match your hair at Sephora.
