I’m never normally happy upon waking…I’m not one of those people who jumps out of bed with joy to greet the day. But usually by the time I’ve visited the bathroom and brushed my teeth I’m fairly good to go – as long as coffee follows soon after.

It has been well over 2 months now since I’ve gone No Poo – a step I took very skeptically as an experiment. Since then, a lot has changed!
For funsies, I thought I would go through my old ‘beauty regimen’ (not that it was much of a regimen – I’ve never been much of what you would call a girly-girl) compared to my new one.
Here’s what it used to look like: Read the rest of this entry »
