Want to make waiting in the checkout line at Whole Foods feel a little less endless? We took a little shopping trip and found these beauty must-haves are conveniently located right along the check out aisle.
Last week I attended the Indie Beauty Expo at the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC in hopes to find some real gems. After walking around meeting founders and testing products for over two hours, I narrowed down my favorite brands and got the scoop on their top sellers.

I've never been more conscious about what I put into my body and find food labels not only to be confusing, but also misleading. The more I learn in nutrition school, the more careful I become. As a gluten-free, vegan (yes, my meat-loving, husband who lives for Sunday pasta wants to kill me), I've found plenty of nutritious meal options, but it's not always easy. Whether you're like me or just like to buy "organic," I dissected some common food labels so you're really in the know and don't buy into the marketing fluff.
