komodo – vegan footwear with soul

I don’t know if I could pull off this look, but these KOMODO Free Tibet vegan sneaks do make quite the bold political statement.

Twenty percent of every sale of these shoes will go directly to the FREE TIBET CAMPAIGN.

A few weeks ago, Weleda asked if I’d like to try their new Pomegranate Regenerating Body Care; I was all for it.
As you may already know, pomegranate is an antioxidant, dermatologically tested and proven to increase skin smoothness, moisture levels and accelerate skin renewal.  I’ve enjoyed using this exciting new line for the past couple of weeks.  The products pack a lot of punch, penetrating and energizing the skin without (more…)
