LPN’s 2015 Holiday Gift Guide Part I: Natural Perfume

LPN Gift Guide 2015

Fa la la la la….  <3 Hard to believe but it’s (almost) (already) that time of year. To kick things off to festive start, I thought I’d start off by publishing LPN’s First Holiday Gift Guide of 2015. Given that fragrance and perfumes are such common (toxic) gifts during the holidays, it only made sense to start here this year: your healthy alternative to beautiful fragrance, naturally. Find below a selection of some of my favourites (some you may have seen {Read More}

Cover Up, Naturally! LPN’s Pick on the Best Natural Concealers


A few weeks ago I received an email from a LPN reader asking for help. Funnily enough, she was facing the same product conundrum I had been facing for a long time: what is the best natural under eye concealer?! As an NBB (natural beauty blogger), I’ve had my fair share of product trials – and when it has come to concealer, I have been hunting high and low for the most effective product (that’s not even all of them pictured {Read More}

LPN’s iHerb Shopping Cart – My Fave Natural Beauty & Wellness Buys


I get a lot of questions about what products I use, foods I eat and beauty tips I use for my day-to-day life. This morning I was filling out an iHerb Order, and I thought to myself, it would be a good basis for a post – that is, just to share with you what I’m buying on this cloudy Hallowe’en Saturday in a chilly northern town. So, that’s just what I’ll do. Today’s post is a simple sharing of my shopping {Read More}

La Clairière Bio Spa & Hotel: A Review on a Beautiful Spa Rooted in Natural Luxe

La Clairiere Bio Spa

Do you remember how last week I was talking about the universe giving you what you need when you need it? Well, it did it again. After finding out that I needed to move in one of the busiest times of the year, having a promising romance come to a close (funny how I end up in these beautiful places when it’s time to reflect on love), and mediating a great deal of changes related to work, last weekend I was {Read More}

How to De-stress Naturally – LPN’s Top 6 Stress Relief Tips


I’m not sure what it is, but with every autumn comes transitions. Transitions towards longer workdays, less sleep and maybe even more broad life changes. I also find that during this time of year we try “to do it all” – for me that might mean getting to my yoga classes, maintaining some form of a social life, avoiding the seasonal cold or working on LPN when I can find the time. Now don’t mistake this for complaining; I feel very {Read More}

LPN’s Gluten Free & Vegan Chia Energy Biscuits


This week I’ll be hoping on a 17 hour flight. I love to travel, but I don’t love airplane food and I don’t love what long haul flights do to my skin- that is, my unprepared skin. When I travel one of the most important parts of my packing is food for the flight (along side a series of oils, creams and travel-sized spritzers). Whether it’s snacks and full meals, I plan ahead to ensure that I’m feeling nourished and {Read More}

LPN’s August Faves: Natural Beauty & Lifestyle


It’s that time of the month (no, not that one – ha ha). Time for another monthly faves post on all that I’m loving in the natural beauty & wellness space. Today’s post is a combination of beauty, skincare, food and music. A lovely little curated collection of some beautiful things for you to enjoy as much as I have. LPN’s Summer Yoga Flow Playlist on Spotify: Love Flow  While I’m writing this post from my yoga mat in the yard, {Read More}

LPN Interviews Megan Cannon: Yogini & Wellness Goddess – Natural Beauty Tips & Tricks


Today I have a very special LPN interview with an absolutely incredible natural beauty: Megan Cannon. Megan was one of the yoga teachers/inspirers at my Yandara Yoga Teacher Training last month in Bali. When she first walked in the room,  I was instantaneously struck by her natural beauty, but the way this Goddess radiated, I knew she was something very special.  You could feel her love from across the room — and her presence was filled with kindness, compassion and true inner {Read More}

Blissful Bali – LPN’s Yoga & Natural Beauty Travel Necessities


My beautiful souls <3 Over the past month, I have been on a journey. A most powerful and beautiful journey. My beliefs have been challenged. My ideas of what matters have been realigned. My love of this life has grown leaps and bounds – and I was already pretty damn fond of it. <3 For the past several years, I have been wanting to do my yoga teacher training. This year, the universe aligned and I took off to Bali {Read More}

LPN’s April & May Faves: Natural Beauty Love


This might be considered cheating — but I slammed April & May faves into one post this month. Why? Well, because life has been a bit crazy as of late and I haven’t been able to update as frequently as I would like. Excuses aside, summer is coming and I can’t wait to have a bit more time to tell you about all the wonderful goodness I’ve come across over these last few months. In today’s post, I’ll focus on {Read More}

Ayurvedic Natural Beauty: An Introduction to PRATIMA Skincare


Ayurveda. It’s no new topic to the pages of LPN. You might have heard about it before here, here, here and here (among a few other posts). While I won’t re-hash what Ayurveda is, I’ll give you a beauty-focused description from none other than the Queen of Ayurvedic beauty herself, Pratima Raichur: “A holistic science over 5,000 years old carries which carries a profound body of knowledge for understanding ourselves within the laws of nature. According to Ayurveda, each individual and {Read More}

Annmarie Skincare’s Earth Minerals Foundation – Review

Screen Shot 2015-04-11 at 7.15.37 PM

One of my all time favourite skincare lines is back with something FABULOUS. Annmarie Gianni is up to it again – creating beautiful things in skincare… but this time, it’s makeup. A liquid (or dry matte) foundation no less! I am such a huge fan of her line – I’ve called it the skincare line I would eat in a past post, and now with makeup as pure as her skincare, I can’t say I’m anything but one happy girl. {Read More}
