Turning One!

It’s been a while since I sat down & shared with you my thoughts. You see it’s been a whirlwind several months since I launched the brand & I sincerely did not expect it to pick up as quickly as it did – suffice to say that it kept me very busy & on my

Detox.

We all need that, a good thorough cleansing. Sit down, we’re about to get technical. We created the PURE DETOX line to go hand in hand with the PURE CLEAN line. It is meant to be used once a week to thoroughly rid our skin & hair of all its impurities & product build up.

New Beginnings.

Well hello there. I’ve always wanted to be a writer. When I was a child I dreamed I would grow up & write great books. Or poems. I also considered maybe I could write for a newspaper or American Vogue. Instead I find myself today living a different dream – that of being a mother,
