More than ever we need a FLOWEREVOLUTION

  I’ll never forget watching a video about Cleve Backster’s groundbreaking experiments with plants.  He was not a botanist by profession, in fact, he probably didn’t think much about plants at all.  His job with the C.I.A. focused on conducting lie detector tests with the polygraph—though he himself preferred to call them “truth detector” tests.  His […]

Ursa Major + Ayla: The Super Summer into Fall Trio!

When a brand blows me away, I sit up and take notice. That’s what happened the first time I used Ursa Major’s Hoppin’ Fresh Deodorant, $18. After trying nearly every other natural deodorant available, this is the first stick that glides on the way conventional drugstore versions do. That means zero clumping, crumbling, softening, or leaving unsightly […]

Meet the amazing high vibing team behind The Hub of Clean Living

Welcome to the new site!

Launching The Hub of Clean Living—a.k.a. The Hub—has been my heart project for over a year, and there are a lot of people to thank for it…

My favorite Jane Iredale collection yet + swatch alert and GIVEAWAY [OVER]

   Before there was green beauty, there was Jane Iredale. When I was looking for cleaner makeup nearly 20 years ago, I found an apothecary in NYC that carried this iconic label. I’ve been using the products ever since. Though never claiming to be natural or green, this company certainly paved the way for many […]

Meet Josh Rosebrook this Thursday + new beauty shop alert!

Not many brands have Josh Rosebrook’s reputation. Given his mentions in Vogue, ELLE, W Magazine, and others, the cliché “the man, the myth, the legend” may aptly apply. Look him up to see the reviews. It doesn’t take long to find fans raving about the entire line—nearly unheard of in the beauty world where those […]

Win the Jane Iredale 2015 Holiday Collection

Let me put it out there that I am no makeup artist. I’ve basically been doing the same look on my face for the last 20 years. And that’s ok because it works and because it doesn’t cause my kids any embarrassment. They know mom won’t show up at school one day with 50 shades […]

Join the movement: Sacred Beauty Salon Series (Plus discount codes!)

Last spring when I participated in Sacred Beauty Salon Series, I had no idea that I stepped into a budding beauty movement that would resonate with me in a soul-stirring way. (After all, it’s not every day that a gal has the opportunity to join a proactive gathering that promotes inner and outer transformation, right?) […]

Every year, the event grows organically, as more women take ownership of their health […]

The Embody Beauty Series| The shocking beauty story I never shared before

My mother tells this story about me when I was about four or five years old. I was standing up close to a mirror and making silly faces at myself. My mother saw me and said: “Sarita, you are a character!” Without hesitating, I answered back: “But I’m a beautiful character.” I love this story […]
