There were a few things I needed to stock up on in Paris and Argan oil was one of them. I guess every other Parisian Parisien had the same dry hair issue I did, because from Thursday afternoon until Saturday morning, I could not find my favorite Melvita brand for the life of me.

Every so often I get a little creative in the kitchen. What’s not so creative is that it usually involves a blender and some veggies. I am definitely no Martha Stewart — and I’ll take healthy over creative any day; however, this weekend I was both :) I whipped this one up while I was inspired by the raw food restaurant I found here in the North.

Before I started this post, I made a promise to myself that I would not rant on for hours about the dangers of artificial air fresheners. I’m going to try  my best to honor that. ;) Why Should I Avoid Febreeze, Body Shop & Glade?
