This is something that I wanted to be sure I share as eloquently as possible, an important share for the sanity of all who venture into the world of healthy living. I am going to let you in on a little secret.. You do NOT have to completely swear off baked goods, give away all of your kids’ plastic toys, or immediately throw out your entire make up collection to trade in for a healthy lifestyle. Yes, you heard me.. I, Healthy Lifestyle Blogger of Bloom & Clementine, am telling you that sometimes perfectionism in ANY aspect of your life can be more detrimental than allowing a few “toxic” elements slip into your life. Now, I don’t want to completely confuse everyone here, if you’ve followed my blog you know that I have adopted a healthy way of living which includes green beauty, healthy choices for my family, making my own cleaning products, etc. I share my way of living, eating, as well as educate people on the toxicity of most conventional products and what to swap them out for. I am the biggest advocate for healthier choices overall, and believe that the more we educate each other on these topics, there is a better chance that the companies throwing together concoctions of different poisons and labelling them “safe” will slowly die out. I also believe that knowledge is power and that everyone should have a good understanding of what it is these companies are putting into your self care products, your food, your household cleaners, amongst many other things.
