Spring is finally here

It is finally getting warmer! :D Spring is on it's way and I can't wait until it's warm enough to sit outside, enjoy the sun on my skin, and drink a nice cocktail with my friends. Or read a book in the breeze on a nice summer evening on my balcony. Or just enjoy the amazing pictures nature paints.

Like these ones I took on a stroll last year:

Xoxo, enjoy spring!

Did you know?

I just found out that the squares on paste tubes - that I always thought were random - had a secret meaning about which ingredients where used.

Did you ever notice they had different colors? There's green, blue, red and black.
Apparently green means that only natural ingredients were used, blue indicates natural and medial ingredients, red is a mixture of natural and chemical ingredients and black is pure chemical.

I think this knowledge makes it much more easier to decide which tooth paste or cream to buy. Especially in times like these, where the body is exposed to so many chemicals which can cause a great number of illnesses, it seems like a good idea to minimize this exposure wherever it is possible.

What about you, do you pay attention to ingredients and how your toiletries are made? Or are you more like me and choose whatever is cheapest, smells best, has the most outstanding packaging or just caught your eye first?

Xoxo, have a great week!
