Non-Toxic Blowout in Atlanta

The best non toxic blowout in ATL + a discount code for you!

I’ve been getting into non-toxic & organic beauty and body products recently. We should all care just as much about what we put on our bodies as what we put in them. Although it is easier said then done when making the switch…

I decided when I run out of the products I’m currently using I’m going to at least try out a natural version.

As of now, I’ve changed up: my deodorant, some skincare, body lotion and shampoo to more natural options.

When Bilgah, from the Bilgah Moka Salon, reached out to me about coming in for one of her signature sustainable blowouts, I said “oh hell yes!” Totally up my new natural alley.

Before my apt, I did a little research. I found that she uses only non toxic products. And it’s definitely the only sustainable hair spa I’ve ever heard of!

Imagine a day spa. Soothing music, essential oils diffusing, tea and fresh flowers. I mean, come on, relaxation! So much more intimate then the more well known/commercial blow out places. Bilgah takes the time to customize the experience to your hair as well.

She walked me through her Neuma hair products and told me about some of her other favorite vegan/organic/non toxic beauty products that she uses at home as well. If there’s anything you want to know in this category, she’s your gal.

I was a little skeptical as to if the products would really clean my hair and hold a good curl.

Bilgah did her thing while I peppered her with questions about her fav essential oils and clean makeup brands. Always learning!

 

I loved the blow out! I mean…you’ve seen the pics! The products definitely did the job and made my hair smell amazing too.

Non toxic & organic products not only hold up but make your hair feel so healthy! Plus, I felt really good about using products I knew were free from chemicals.

If you’re in the Atlanta area you need Bilgah in your life! You can experience her spa-like salon or she can bring her services to you, in home.

Her goal is for everyone that comes in to just relax for an hour and really take that time to #treat themselves! I totally LOVE that mindset, you know I’m obsessed with self care.

If you’re the Atlanta area and want to try a sustainable & non toxic blow out I highly suggest Bilgah Moka Salon!

Choosing Happiness

My road to choosing happiness and ending my pity party.

Everyone always says “happiness is a choice.”

*Eye roll*

Until recently I literally thought these people were off their rockers. They never had to deal with anything in their lives and that’s why they could say that. Basically accusing me of “choosing to be sad!”

 

“I can’t control my feelings.”

“I’m so sad and can’t stop crying.”

“I feel depressed and can’t even imagine what happy feels like right now.”

All things thought by me…probably multiple times along with much worse. One wrong move would send my whole day south.

Recently, what I’ve come to learn is that what you put out into the world is what you get back. (The universe or something like that?)

Everyday we all have the choice to wake up and decide if we are going to have a good day or a bad one.

Now, I consciously choose to have good days!!

Don’t get me wrong, life ain’t easy, but I do what I can.

 

Instead of feeling sorry for myself, now I think ‘how can I improve this situation?’

Instead of thinking the world has it out for me when I fail, I choose to think of new ways to succeed.

Gone are the days where I have a bad moment and then have a bad rest of the day! Bye, girl!

 

Why waste your life living in a constant state of numbness just waiting for the next mini disaster? I think we all can feel comfortable in negativity sometimes. It’s so much easier to just slip into that depressed state. But that is no way to live a fulfilling life!

Replace your negative self talk with positivity and your life will change.

I choose joy.

Every day I choose to make the best out of the situations thrown at me.

I choose happiness.

Who is nutMeg?

Welcome to A Dash of nutMeg!

Who is she?

Welcome to my site!! Wow, I can’t believe I’m even typing this out…

I have kind of always dreamed about sharing my thoughts and life with others but I never knew what the right platform was for me.

For the longest time I didn’t want to blog because every other basic bitch seems to have one. And if I have one goal in life, it’s to NOT be basic. Yet, here I am. But don’t worry I know you’ll love my stuff.

Health & wellness are my 2 biggest passions in life and I felt called to start sharing. I want to make it easy for my friends and whomever I reach to implement simple tips and tricks to make their days just a dash healthier.

nutMeg? Yes, hunny! I love to cook (hence the spice) and people call me Meg.

Tell me what you want to talk about!
