Part two to this blog is all about being Crunchy. Have you heard of this word? I just learned it about a year ago and for some weird, crazy reason absolutely love it. Here, let me define it for you. Taken directly from the Urban Dictionary:
Used to describe persons who have adjusted or altered their lifestyle for environmental reasons. Crunchy persons tend to be politically strongly left-leaning and may be additionally but not exclusively categorized as vegetarians, vegans, eco-tarians, conservationists, environmentalists, neo-hippies, tree huggers, nature enthusiasts, etc.
Now, you might read this and be all like "I would not describe Jamie in this way at all, except for the vegetarian part, but I don't think she's doing that anymore." You would be right, to an extent. Maybe I'm not full on crunchy. Just a partial crunch (can I re-purpose a made up word??) I have been called a tree-hugger before back when I was a veg. and while I've never actually hugged a tree, I do find them to be an amazing piece of nature. I am not "left-leaning" in any way. I guess if I would have to put my thoughts on scale I would be right about
And I’ll be completely honest, I see the importance of taking care of the environment, but I am by no means practicing. Not even a bit. I’ll just lay it out in black and white. Get ready to throw the rocks…I don’t recycle. I know, I know. It’s not that I don’t want to or don’t think it’s beneficial. I just haven’t done it. I haven’t found the space for the different trash cans or taken the time to separate my “trash.” I guess I’m just lazy. I’ll say it so you don’t have to.The primary reason I'm into being all natural is it saves me money, and I despise the idea of putting chemicals all over my skin.
Judge me or praise me, it doesn’t really matter. This isn’t a political blog by any means. The most important thing is that you follow me. Why? Because, while you might not agree with me on why to be crunchy, but What I am doing is going to be awesome. Hopefully together, with natural ingredients not made in a lab, we can be healthier, more glowy (as in your skin!), and save a butt-load of mullah.
I am attempting to replace all my chemical laden, household items, with natural, good-for-you, crunchy products (again, I just love that word!!!) Come, attempt with me....
