Two Bits

We want to break down these internet barriers and invite you into our lives and we’re hoping you’ll do the same.  You are welcome to share a bit of your week or day in the comments, or if they’re better represented by a photo, tag us on instagram @liveseasoned.

What a week! The weather here was so so, but it motivated me to get a bunch of work done before my trip to see Kate in Colorado next week. I spent long hours in the darkroom and in my home office, developing prints, paying taxes and getting everything squared away. Nothing too exciting. I did listen to some interesting podcasts that I’d like to share here. If you like the suggestions, I’ll keep them coming in future two bits posts.

Stuff You Should Know – How Makeup Works – Wow. This one was eyeopening! Did you know makeup hasn’t really been regulated since around 1938?! Insane! That was the real gem of this podcast, just knowing that we are all rubbing unregulated chemical concoctions into the largest organ on our body.. not good. Just like we were surprised to find out beaver castoreum is sometimes used in artificial vanilla flavoring, there are some pretty curious ingredients in common makeup products. Kate has taken a few mineral makeup classes and we’re hoping to share some of that information and a recipe or two in future here on the blog.

Stuff You Should Know – How Perfume Works – Not as disturbing as the makeup podcast, but equally informative, it was cool to hear what exactly goes into creating a perfume.  I wanted to listen to this episode after Kate wrote the coolest post (in my opinion) on DIY perfume a few days ago. Check it out if you’re interested in making one of our custom scents, or maybe you have your own idea in mind?!

What else? We started the week reminiscing about a trip to Bali, Indonesia, shared our camera equipment mid-week and rounded it all out by talking about IUDs. Varied, but informative week here on Seasoned. Oh question, when learning new workouts and yoga sequences online, what do you prefer? Still images, videos, GIFs? We’d love to know. Happy weekend!
