My Freelance Writing and other Thoughts on a Sick Day


Just a quick check in as I roll into day three of the flu. It’s rough, my friends. Second time I’ve been hit this season. I’m resting and drinking fluids like it’s my job. Only problem is it’s not and when you’re income is based on freelance/contract work there are no sick days.

One Clean Thing ~ Almond Oil

PMD almonds

By Estelle Hayes Almonds are a favorite snack of mine. They are packed with protein, vitamin E and calcium, which makes them a perfect daily addition to my vegetarian diet.

I’ve been a huge consumer of body creams since junior high and have basically been slathering on any cream with a Lily of the Valley scent I could get my hands on for the past 25 years.  Those days are gone, my friends. Body lotions are pretty hard to Read More →

Use this, not that: A reader’s detox plan

By Estelle Hayes Hearing from readers and sharing ideas with this community about the best ways to live a clean and healthy life is hands-down, the best part of editing Pink Moon Daily. It’s so exciting to hear from like-minded people who care deeply about what they put on, in and around their bodies.
