Book 42 of 52: Eco-Beautiful: The Ultimate Guide to Natural Beauty and Wellness

That was fast, right? That’s because, like Book 20 of 52, Eco-Beautiful: The Ultimate Guide to Natural Beauty and Wellnessis more pictures and large type with generous spacing than you’ll find in a typical book, like most of what I review here. That’s not to diminish the book — not at all. If you’re looking to get into a greener lifestyle, especially when it comes to what you put on your face every day, it’s a nice place to start, though I’d skip the nutrition information and what author Lina Hanson has to say about the sun (you DO need some vitamin D through the sun).

It was OK to read. I’m not really a makeup person. Most days I don’t wear any, and I don’t own foundation. I lost my makeup bag for a few days while in the Florida Keys, and I didn’t miss it. But for those days I DO need to look slightly nicer, I might take a look at some of the looks Hanson presents (though illustrations might help).

And with that, I’m off to the shore tomorrow. Not sure what I’ll be bringing, but I hope it’ll be interesting.
