One of my favorite places to visit especially during these cold dark days is the library. It’s the place that kept me out of some trouble during my teens and where I learned many of my favorite beauty recipes and beauty know how.
Since I can remember I always gravitated toward natural health and beauty books. I was intrigued by the wealth of information and curious about all the amazing qualities not only humans posses but the foods, herbs and world around us.
I first started with the chakras, spirituality and self healing books…..
then gravitated and stayed hooked on beauty books and recipes ever since. Beauty books like Bobbi Brown’s and many more alike catapulted me into makeup and beauty way before beauty blogs became so popular.
I recently stopped by my local library for some inspiration and the 2011 Farmer’s Almanac. It’s truly more than just weather info but other quirky stuff I was curious about too. I picked up a book on eyebrows since I want to wax my own eyebrows very soon. I also got a very interesting book on natural beauty recipes I have been getting a lot of great inspiration and recipes from.
I also picked up this amazing book which I love and have been reading these past cold and snowy days. I’m a huge fan of Traditional Chinese Medicine and this book really simplifies a lot of the complex concepts to Chinese medicine. So far I’ve learned a few interesting things. So don’t neglect your local library. Roam about and see what you find.
