Inspire Me Thursdays by Desiree Proveau

Some Thursdays, we post one of the "Inspire Me Thursday" posts from Desiree Proveau's wonderful blog, The Farmer's Only Daughter. It's full of style and crafts and lessons learned while growing up on a farm — the kind of stuff that can come in handy living in the midst of the big city's urban glitz and excess:

Happy Thursday everyone! Hope you're surviving these depressing days of February... Don't worry, we're almost through it...I can see light at the end of the tunnel and what's inspiring me most this week is spring time!   

LOVE this outfit!

What's also inspiring me this week are DIY cosmetics and organic cosmetic lines.  I am determined to purge my makeup bag of all the terrible chemicals I put on my face everyday which is seriously alarming. I just purchased the above book and it seems like a pretty good guide to start with. I discovered it while searching for stores in Toronto that sell organic cosmetics (not very many to my surprise) but the one I did find 'Pretty Beauty and Books' called this book their bible which was enough for me.  I'm going to take a stab at making my own stuff too which I'm really excited about! Starting to gather jars, makeup bottles etc. so I can display my ingredients in a pretty fashion... There are tons of antique labels on the net you can print!  FUN!
It's not spring yet but it's definitely time to start wearing pastels. I am drawn to them every year around this time...

 I'm getting through these dark days by making sure I have flowers in the house... 
I've started meditating... 

and I bought two pastel sweaters... : )

Its only a matter of time now!

Thanks for reading!
Love Desiree
