Organic Skin Care Sale! Free $21 Moisturizer with $30 order!

NYR Organic Orange Flower Daily Moisturizer

Hi Everyone!  Hope you're having a great MLK weekend.

It's been a fantastic month for me, as a new consultant for NYR Organic skin care and cosmetics.  I am loving my new job!  Who doesn't love trying on and sharing beauty products; especially ones that are all-natural, paraben-free, and made with organic ingredients?  ;)

I'm truly in love with this incredible line from Neal's Yard Remedies.  Based in the UK, this carbon-neutral, eco-conscious, family-owned company has been in the business of organic skin care and natural remedies for over 30 years.  It's so great to find a company with such solid core values, behind these unmatched products.

Today, I'm here to introduce to you their Nourishing Orange Flower Daily Moisture.  This lovely neroli-scented lotion is now my go-to daily moisturizer for my face.  While it's made to nourish dry skin, I find it's been just right for my combination skin, and absorbs right in, with no greasy film.  Unlike other brands of moisturizers I've tried over the years, I've had no issues with any of the Neal's Yard Remedies moisturizers under my makeup.  In fact, I find they absorb even faster than other brands, and I don't even have to wait, before starting my makeup application.  I love, too, that like all Neal's Yard Remedies products, this is free of artificial fragrances, has no petroleum products, it's phthalate-free, and not tested on animals.  All of their products are carefully hand-crafted in the UK, and are full of high-quality, concentrated, natural ingredients.  Just a little goes a long way, to provide just the perfect amount of moisture, that lasts all day.

To welcome in the New Year, all $30+ orders placed before 1-31-13 will include a free tube of this Orange Flower Daily Moisture; a $21 value!  My friends and family have been loving this moisturizer, along with their other NYR Organic goodies.

Don't forget to check out the other specials this month, with many favorites from 15-20% off, including our Organic Essential Oils Trio collection.

Simple & Delicious: Oven-Roasted Cabbage

Happy New Year, everyone!  Hope you had a wonderful holiday season!

Christmas is always a special time for our family, but after all the holiday treats (and food cheats) it's always a relief to get back to our normal routine afterwards.  Last night, we enjoyed some comfort food: oven-roasted chicken, and a very simple, yet delicious side of roasted cabbage.  This was so easy to put together, very budget-friendly, at less than a dollar for a whole head of cabbage, and an excellent way to get some more cruciferous vegetables in our diet, too.   You can easily add and roast extra heads; enough to feed a larger crowd.  It's also a convenient dish, that can roast right alongside with your main course that's already in the oven; a real time-saver.

Simple & Delicious Oven-Roasted Cabbage

Makes 6 servings


1 head cabbage, outer leaves removed
Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
1/2 tsp sea salt
fresh ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Halve cabbage head, and cut out stem.
  3. Cut halves into thirds.
  4. Arrange cabbage wedges in a parchment paper-lined baking dish.
  5. Drizzle cabbage with extra virgin olive oil, and sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper.
  6. Roast uncovered for about 25 minutes.
The cabbage came out really tender, juicy, and mild.  A great accompaniment to our chicken, and many more dishes to come!

Enjoy :)
