I’m Deborah Davis.
And I’m delighted to welcome you to our “vibrant-conscious-lifestyle” magazine:
Urban Naturale was developed to help inform and shape your path to living healthy, green and natural, by design — which, we know, is no easy task!
In fact, for me, it has been a lifelong, journey filled with lots of trial and error, and ups and downs, and hits and misses. But like most of us, I’m continually learning and growing, tweaking and adjusting.
Let’s face it, a healthy, textured, meaningful life is a continual work in progress.
So, let’s share the journey...
Do you ever ask yourself:
• How can I live a healthy, green, natural, creative and fulfilling life —
especially in an urban environment?
• How can I look good, feel good and be my best self?
• How can I make healthier, more informed choices for
my loved ones and world around me?
But there are so many choices. So many questions. So many challenges.
And so much — yet, often conflicting — information!
On any given day, we may wake up to jarring news reports, eye-popping new findings and shocking revelations.
It’s frequently so confusing to make sense of it all, I often wonder…
“What’s a thinking girl to do, eat, drink, wear, make, use,
buy, keep, toss, donate, reuse, recycle, repurpose?
(Not to mention with whom, when, where, why and how?)”
That’s what Urban Naturale is all about…
Urban Naturale is a place to find and share useful, relevant, life-shaping information with like-minded souls: people (especially women) who are striving to live a healthier, more natural, eco-friendly and creative life, at any age.
Does that sound a bit like you?
Urban Naturale explores the everyday challenges we face and choices we make — from choosing the products we buy and the food we eat, to the ingredients we put on our bodies, how we take care of ourselves (body/mind/spirit); what we clean with, the materials ,furniture and accessories we live with — as we strive to live a relatively healthy, eco-conscience and natural life — particularly in — but not limited to — an urban environment.
Urban Naturale is chock full of healthy and delicious recipes, helpful how-to-guides, tips for making stuff and making stuff happen; best practices, innovators, cool tools and ideas, inspiring people, useful solutions; helpful technology, products, services, apps, sites and resources and much more.
