Edible Gold. What’s up with that??

Warning: this may be the silliest blog post I’ve ever written.

So I’ve been hearing a lot about ‘edible gold’ as of late. It’s all over the place. On candies, dusted on pastries, and all up on that thing Serendipity is touting as “The World’s Most Expensive Dessert“.

Naturally, I wanted to know why edible gold was such a big deal.

Also naturally, I turned to the Internet to figure out what it’s all about. (Here is one article I read)

And you know what??? The whole thing is really silly. The only real reason that pure gold is ‘edible’ is because it is an inert element that will react with absolutely nothing in your digestive system. There are no health benefits. It does absolutely nothing to your body.
Translation: you eat it, it sits inside your guts and takes a nice leisurely float on the lazy river of your intestines, and then you excrete it as waste…in the exact same form in which you ingested it.

Congratulations – the “Most Expensive Dessert” you have ever eaten also translates into the “Most Expensive Bowel Movement” you’ve ever had! You literally flushed your money down the toilet.

Really people….does that make ANY sense?
And does it even taste good??
I don’t know about you, but the last time I checked, gold doesn’t really have a special flavor to it.

Seriously.
Silliest trend I’ve ever heard of.
Except for maybe that $250K nailpolish made of black diamonds.

HAIR AND STUFF: part III

I’ve found myself being asked, somewhat frequently, about hair care. I am in no way an expert, but I have done a little bit of research and I’m assuming these previous posts (part I/part II) have had something to do with giving people the impression that I actually know what I am talking about ; )

So, I’ve decided to continue this little series to let you all know about a new method I’ve been trying out for the past 7 months or so…the “no poo” method. It took me a while, but I’ve figured out a way to make it work for me and I love it. I’m not saying that what I do will work for everyone, because that’s just ridiculous. But hopefully by sharing my adventure into no-shampoo-land with you, you will be able to find a formula that works for you too!

And for anyone looking for tips on growing longer, healthier hair – as always I recommend checking out the Long Hair Community forums! There are a lot of wonderful, intelligent individuals who have heaps of advice and useful information. I’ve linked to some of my favorite/most helpful LHC articles in previous posts 🙂

Now, let’s get down to the nitty gritty…

a word about blog trends.

So apparently, there is this thing that bloggers do.

Well, the pregnant-lady ones that is.

They post cute little updates and pictures of them with their growing baby bump, and just generally let you know how pregnancy is and stuff. Like a little diary. It’s cute.

But I’m not digging it, for myself….

So instead, here is a picture of the awesome green rug I bought for my living room last week!

thank you, Ikea!

The curtains have since been taken down and are awaiting a return…because I liked them less and less each time I saw them. Hahaha. But the rug, I love. A whole lot. But really, who can resist a green shag rug?!

Not me, that’s who.

love, rach

ps is it weird that I’ll talk ALL about pregnancy and all things associated with it if you ask me in person, yet I don’t really want to blog about it?? I mean, I don’t even have to know someone that well for them to get me talking about OB/GYN visits and puking and breasts and anything else awkward. but on the internet to a general audience?? not a peep. hahaha.
