Hi Everyone!!!

You are never too old to learn,  and wow… I learned vlogging is hard work! I decided to give vlogging a shot after a few YouTube friends suggested I do some vlogging for variety. I am not sure vlogging is really for me because I actually got tired talking all day…about my day…and to myself…LOL… but it was fun to putting it together.  

In this video I did have fun thinking about all of your and trying to show some of things you might find entertaining and helpful. I share with  you the places I go… things I do …and where I shop in Baton Rouge that support a natural and organic lifestyle; as well as supporting local businesses & small businesses whenever possible  and purchases that make a difference for others.
If you stick around and watch the whole video, you will get to see my before/after organic hair color service with O-Way products line at Cosi Bella in Downtown Baton Rouge. You can checkout what green beauty makeup products are in my morning routine (Beautycounter, Pacifica, Gabriel, Everyday Minerals). Also,  learn 2 things I’m doing to improve my hair;  see the Louisiana State Capital..and check out 3 very popular small businesses for art, clothes & jewelry. Plus a couple of other stops. See the description box of the video for more links.

XO, Hope Maria
