Pinner Test: Food Intolerance Testing + Results

Back in February I decided I needed to take some sort of a test to see which foods I was intolerant to. It had been almost 6 years since I had last been tested and the body changes quite a bit in just a year alone…so, it was time. I did a bit of research and finally landed on Pinner Test, one of the most accurate at-home Food Intolerance Testing Kits. I mean, if I don’t have to leave home to go to some creepy building to get blood tests, AND it’s still accurate, count me in! (Jk about the creepy building..maybe haha.) On February 6th, I received my Pinner Test and went straight to testing this bad boy out. I’m sure all of you are keen to know about how this whole ordeal went…right? Well, before we get into that, let’s chat about what Pinner Test is and how it works.

I mean…can you even handle these gorgeous lipsticks right now? From the packaging, right down to the unique colours! These Axiology Natural Organic Lipsticks are to die for! Oh and I am convinced their creator and founder, Ericka Rodriguez is an angel! She is not only stunning, but has a heart of gold and is the loveliest, kindest soul. Don’t you just love when a company cares for your body, as much as they care for the environment? These lipsticks are formulated completely without chemicals or synthetics – I mean, why put a bunch of nasty stuff inside of what’s about to go on your precious lips?! (And get ingested too!) Instead, Axiology crafts them with a “harmonious blend of natural and organic ingredients“. The results are stunning! Earth-based tones that dazzle, compliment and command attention. Not limited to just one skin type – but on every skin type and complexion, with a burst of vibrancy + moisture that lasts all day.

Essential Oils + Their Benefits

Hello lovelies! I have for you something a bit different today – it isn’t a review, however it is very relevant to the last review I did regarding Bali Botanic. Before I got into Essential Oils, I did a lot of research on them, figuring out what oils were best for your health/skin issues and more…of course that helped me out a bit, but there were (and still are) a lot of questions I had. As you know, we never stop learning and EO’s never cease to amaze me with their medicinal and therapeutic powers.

Essential oils are volatile liquids distilled from plants and organic matter like seeds, flowers, fruit, stems, bark, roots, and leaves. They can be used to heal and support your body’s emotional and physical well-being, typically entering the body in three ways. Application to the skin using a compress, a spray, a bath, or massage; they can be inhaled using a diffuser, dry evaporation, steam, or a spray; and they can be ingested either orally or by suppository. (Please take caution and note that the ingestion of essential oils is only recommended under the supervision of a licensed healthcare provider.)

Essential oils have always been my thing. Whether it be for a great nights sleep, to help me kick a cold, for purification purposes, to aches and pains. EO’s are the best! I’ve tried many different oils, but lavender is definitely one of my favourites. It’s funny because you think, “Oh all lavender oils are going to smell the same…” – wrong! I have totally noticed a difference in essential oils and their scent/potency through out different brands.
