bask in the light

Light is an ephemeral quality that we just can’t live without! The rising and setting of the sun are the only events that happen every single day, no matter what. As they say, the sun always rises! Around the world, whether northern or southern hemisphere, light defines our lives and our lifestyles. As seasons change our worlds get darker in the mornings, lighter in the evenings, days stretch to midnight or fall short at 5pm. We are in a constant state of adjusting to how much light there is outside. This affects what we wear, how we eat, when we exercise, and what activities we can enjoy outdoors. This fluctuating state is universal and it can be said that in spring time, wherever you are in the world, as blossoms appear on trees and the air warms up, really, what we are most grateful for at the end of a long winter is more light in our lives.

new beginnings

They say there’s a reason and a season for everything and as the year draws to a close (it’s November already!) we are celebrating the challenges, successes & learning of this year but also looking with excitement to 2017. We are always striving to find better ways to create the most beautiful natural skincare products and next year will be full of new things! We’ve been all about makeup for 13years and our evolution is not complete: we love to update, refresh, evolve our formulations, colour palettes, sustainability and packaging. We’ve made a big step for the environment this year, getting certified by the Carbon Reduction Institute to be Carbon Neutral. Now, we can happily announce we are expanding into products for the whole body and face..!

expanded horizons

We all know that special feeling, butterflies in the tummy, throat a little tight, a mix of anticipation and expectation as the plane takes off. It’s the feeling of leaving the daily grind behind, of soaring to new heights and reaching new shores. Travel may seem like a luxury, an added bonus if we get everything else right, but expanding your horizons is much more than that. A holiday, be it for two days or two months does more than relax us. It makes us better people.

Inspirational Woman: Lisa Bronner

Lisa Bronner is the granddaughter of the late Dr. Emanuel Bronner, founder of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps, and sister to David and Mike Bronner, who currently run the company along with her husband and mother. A former English and Journalism teacher, Lisa is now a stay at home mum of three school-aged children and runs/writes the “Going Green with a Bronner Mom” (www.lisabronner.com), but in addition to raising her kids and blogging, she is very active in her church’s Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) program. Lisa founded her blog in 2009 to help others make the transition to a healthier home and lifestyle. As a Bronner, she receives a flood of information and insider tips regarding body care and home care, food, nutrition and GMOs, hemp, organics, and Fair Trade, among other “green” topics. She brings all this to bear in writing her blog, along with focusing on the versatility of the Dr. Bronner’s products.
