Hello again!!

I know, I know…am supposed to be cutting back a tad since  I will be taking a class this semester, but…I had a chance to get some videos done this past weekend so I hope you enjoy them. Upcoming video posts will cover green beauty, aromatherapy, empties and a few extras! I still plan to film my series of eco-wellness discoveries from ShiftCon over the next couple of months and of course my monthly Satva Box unboxing.

Super popular but on hold for a while will be my Vegan Cuts subscription box reviews because I have so many products to finish using. The only downside to the great bargains of subscription boxes is the abundance of goodies that fill your world! Several past boxes are still available in their “shop” if you want to check out and grab some for yourself.

I do have a few new things planned for upcoming posts including a review of 25th anniversary edition of The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy by Valerie Ann Worwood. I have been using it and loving it!! It truly is the only book to buy…if you can buy only one book.

Something special I really want to do is a new video on all the variety of ways to diffuse essential oils along with tips, pros and cons. If this is something that you would like…let me know if the comments below and any diffuser questions you might want me to cover.

I also will have a reveal of a special type of diffuser that I have been dreaming of for years! And…the most special part of it….is I have one to GIVEAWAY!!

Back to all things green and beautiful…in this new video, you’ll find some great green beauty products that I’ve been able to pick up while out and about grocery shopping and running errands at local national retailers. I hope this is helpful for those who prefer purchasing products in person or perhaps like me, you’ve gotten super busy and less time to even shop online. Remember to save those receipts as most stores will accept returns if they do not work for you.

Share with us in the comments your favorite green beauty products that budget friendly and local. Remember to check out my Urban Cajun Girl Channel and subscribe so that you never miss a new video!!

XO, Hope Maria
