Dear Kosterina Family, 

Each week we compile our favorite wellness content from around the web. This week, we got on the topic of clean beauty products.

If you've got 44 minutes of commuting or downtime this week, check out the 
Beauty Closet podcast by Goop. There is an episode called "Why are there still toxic ingredients in beauty products?" that I found incredibly informative. It features the VP of Healthy Living Science at Environmental Working Group (EWG).

EWG is an independent organization that provides consumers guidance on what products and ingredients to use and which to avoid. The EWG Skin Deep Database ranks tens of thousands of cosmetic and personal care products on a scale from 1 to 10 from Low Hazard to High Hazard. I'd recommend running a quick search on anything that you're using regularly! #liveclean


Peace, love & EVOO,
Katerina

Do you know what's actually in your coffee?

To me, there's nothing better than that first sip of coffee in the morning. If you're a coffee lover like me and the 165 million people who consume it daily, you would be shocked to find out that coffee is one of the "dirtiest" crops on the planet today.

There is so much I want to do in life. Between work, family and self-care it sometimes feels like I'm just staying afloat and not progressing. Can you relate? Recently, on the Tim Ferriss podcast I heard a piece of advice from the author, Greg McKeown that really resonated with me: take personal quarterly offsites.

If you're like me the transition to Fall is one of the best times of the year. But, as much as I love pumpkin-everything and cozy sweaters - I don't love how much it impacts my immune system.
