Cockatoos are intelligent, inquisitive birds that need lots of living space.

Make sure the cage’s doors lock and its bars are horizontal, not vertical.

Nora Bloom and a Recipe That Turns Your Mineral Powder into Liquid Foundation | Crunchy Betty


Crunchy Betty

Over the last year, I've found myself becoming less and less of a makeup wearer. I'll put on cosmetics maybe once a week. Even though it's infrequent, I am an absolute obsessive about the quality of the cosmetics I do use.However, I don't make my own makeup. Or, at least, I haven't yet. It looks complicated and pretty expensive for most of the ingredients.So when Holly from the lovely (eco-conscious) company Nora Bloom sent me some loose mineral powder to try, needless to say, I was stoked. By stoked, I mean I called everybody I knew (who still actually answer my phone calls) and told them how great life was.(Simplicity is the key to happiness.)

DIY Hyssop Face Mask Recipe for (Naturally) Gorgeous Skin

by Crunchy Betty @ Crunchy Betty

There's this magical box that lives in my "crunchy corner." In it are wonders ne'er before seen, like unicorns and fairies and men who ask for directions.

Just kidding, men. (You'd never fit in this box.)

Actually, what's in this box are small baggies full of herbs and roots and flowers and resins. Every so often, when I go to our local natural food store, I'll pick up an herb that I've recently learned about, but never worked with. I bring it home, smell it, touch it, and occasionally just toss it in the box and forget about it. Not for lack of interest, but more for an abundance of distractions.

You know how it goes. There's always bread to be made, dishes to be washed, friends to be served tea, or cats to be dressed up like German barmaids. Priorities.

About a month ago, as I was planning a few of the plants I'm going to grow in my new rooftop garden, I ran into hyssop seeds. (Isn't that just about the prettiest word you've ever seen? Hyssop. Hyssop. Hyssop.) And while I was familiar with it, I remembered that it was an herb I'd tossed into the box a few months before.

How to Go to Bed After Watching a Horror Movie

How to Go to Bed After Watching a Horror Movie

by @ How to of the Day

Watching horror movies can sometimes lead to a person feeling frightened and unable to sleep. If you’re frightened or anxious after watching a horror movie, you can face your fears by acknowledging and talking about what frightens you. You can think about your fears logically and work to overcome them. Another thing you can try is to distract yourself from your fears by watching or reading something funny, doing an activity that requires focus, or participating in a calming activity. You can also make yourself and your bedroom as comfortable as possible to help you fall asleep.

How to Care for a Pug

by @ How to of the Day

Pugs are a friendly and goofy dog breed that love attention almost as much as people love their folded-up faces. Those folds need special care, though, to keep your pug happy and healthy. Create a consistent routine of meals, play time, and quiet time for your pug, and make sure you provide them with regular fold cleanings, ear cleanings, nail trims, and baths. It can take a little extra work, but with some attention you can care for all of your pug’s unique needs.

Simple Homemade 3-Ingredient Facial Oil Moisturizer – Customize It For Your Own Gorgeous Skin

by Crunchy Betty @ Crunchy Betty

Shoot, you guys. I owe so many of you an apology. For years, so many of you have been asking about what I use to moisturize my face. Every time, the conversation goes like this:

Curious Person: "Hey, Leslie? What do you use to moisturize your face?"
Me: "I use a blend of oils."
Curious Person: "What ​kind​ of oils? Can you give me a recipe?"
Me: "Oh, a whole bunch, blended together. I'll blog it soon, I promise."

Fast forward to eight thousand years later, otherwise known as today, I was mad beautying around in the kitchen, experimenting with blends for the perfect facial oil to sell on the Crunchy Betty Natural Market for oily and blemishy skin (I haven't perfected it yet, but MY personal moisturizing facial oil is now up there for sale). Anyway, as I'm blending and shaking, I realize this is something I should probably blog about.

Before I do, lest you think I was kidding about being a mad beautyist today, this is what my kitchen counter looked like after the experiments, full of my personal oil stash. I never realize how much bloomin' crunchy stuff I have until it's overtaking my kitchen:

25 Free Printable Recipe Cards – Merry Early Crunchmas!

by Crunchy Betty @ Crunchy Betty

So I've been contemplating the gift recipes we should do around here, and it kicked in the old memory. Last year, I made homemade beauty gifts for everyone - but attached to each of the gifts was a stack of recipes with holes punched in the top corner and a beautiful ribbon strung through.

I thought - I want to give YOU GUYS that same gift. But, more importantly, now YOU can give the same gift to people, as well.

For the next few weeks, we'll talk about some good homemade beauty gifts you can give over the holidays, but this'll give you a little head start.

Most of the recipes in this handy-dandy PDF are the best recipes that have been featured on Crunchy Betty over the last six months, but there are a few fun new surprises in there for you, too. And they're neatly packaged and set up so that you can print them as full-sized pages or - even better - print them off easily on 5x7 recipe cards.

This is yours, this PDF. Do whatever you want with it. Send it in emails. Print a million copies off and pass them out to strangers. Put it up on your own site for other people to download. Wallpaper your room with it.

I gave it to you. It's yours.

For-Giving & Forgiveness: Food For Your Soul

by Crunchy Betty @ Crunchy Betty

'Tis the season of giving. Giving, buying, making, giving, giving, giving.

We get so caught up in the giving (and in the stress of finding the right giving to give) that we forget about the other kind of giving. The kind that really matters. For-giving. Forgiving.

Especially when we're all cramped together with family we love, but who've really done some pretty stinky things in the past. Your brother Kyle? Remember when he picked on your weight? And your mom? Jeezopee, how she made everything about her, even when you were crying about the boy who wouldn't kiss you. And maybe your husband hasn't been so honest about money this year. UGH. WHAT A JERK.

In the time of closeness and sharing and proximity that may last a few hours too long, it's about darned time we learned to forgive. Actually, maybe it's time we learn to forgive ... all year 'round. Every resplendent day.

Inspired by a (ahem) true-ish story, I give you one of Crunchy Betty's patented magnificently artistic stick-drawing stories of why you should think about being FOR-giving. Right now. And forever and ever. Amen.
