We've rounded up the absolute best books on natural beauty and skincare of the year!
It's that time of the year. The temperature drops—and with it, my willingness to brave the unrelenting cold. (Of course, to you Northerners, I may be exaggerating from here in Texas) Don't get me wrong, I'm all about the festivities of Winter, so long as I'm holed up indoors in the vicinity of central heating. Almost instinctually, I construct my nest of fuzzy blankets and pillows and fairy lights. (Yes, it's enough to rival the likes of the most enthusiastic Pinterest board). While I, unfortunately, don't possess the capability of hibernation, it's here that I feel the most at ease. There's nothing so satisfying like cozying up with a good read, perhaps accompanied by a warm cuppa and the comforting scent of a candle or two.
Plain ol' fiction usually strikes my fancy, however, in recent pursuit of a cleaner, healthier, or otherwise natural lifestyle my bookshelf has been lined with a number of insightful titles of the same variety.
Is your cold-weather book supply a little lacking? Spruce things up with some of these wonderful titles. You'll find yourself drifting away, one crinkled page after another.
