Gluten Free Diet Guide - More updates

Hello everyone! 

I've just added some new information over at the new site, Gluten Free Diet Guide

  1. A new page about Ecco Bella FlowerColor Cosmetics - still incomplete, check back for updates
  2. A new page about gluten free cornbread
Ecco Bella is a company I'm excited about.  I've seen their FlowerColor cosmetics and I have always wanted to try them.  The next time I need a new mascara, I'll be going there AND I'll probably pick up at least one other item (just for fun!).

Also, you might not think gluten free cornbread is anything all that special.  But I make it work for me, serving multiple purposes for our family's favorite recipes.  It can be tough to replace bread or flour-based ingredients for everyday cooking.  My multi-tasking approach to cornbread has solved a lot of these problems for me.

Follow the links above and let me know what you think!

Thank you for visiting, everyone.

I've made a few updates to the Gluten Free Diet Guide website.  Notice the top and side navigator bars where it says "Gluten Free Cosmetics Counter".  That will be the new home for the most update info on gluten free makeup. 

I've made some progress with Bare Minerals Products Are Gluten Free page today.  I've been using the foundation for at least a month now and I really like it, along with the concealer brush and a Kabuki brush.  I'm looking forward to trying the veil some day.

Anyway, please check it out and see what you think.  I have had some other updates to make, will do that as soon as I can.

Thanks, everyone!

New Expanded Gluten Free Diet and Cosmetics Website

Hello everyone,

I want to thank everyone for visiting my new website, link is up on the left side of this blog.  Recently I decided that I was thinking too small.  I know I can deliver the important gluten free cosmetic information you need.  But I also have a lot I want to share about the gluten free diet, finding special foods that I had trouble getting, my preferred baking and cooking methods, good equipment to have, some solid recipes, and more. 

I'd like you to have a one-stop place to get great info on your favorite cosmetics and a reliable food product, if you should wish.  Believe me, I've been around the block several times with finding solid dependable gluten free products.  Plus I've had to relearn some of my standard cooking methods to replicate our family's favorite foods.  If you're looking for GF cosmetics, you may have questions about your food as well (like I always do).

Here's the link to my new all-in-one site Gluten Free Diet Guide - and that's a picture of some homemade gluten free bread on the header.  Good stuff and easy to make - we always have some on-hand.  So I'll be summarizing and updating the best info I have from both my semi-new cosmetics site and this blog over to that site.  Sorry this has been so disjointed, but I hope this transition will serve everyone better.  This blog will NOT be going away, but the other newish cosmetics site will. 

Again, thanks for being such loyal readers and please keep track of the changes here!

Bare Minerals Eye Shadow - Drama

Hello everyone!

If you are a regular reader, you may notice a new product on the left column - Bare Minerals Eye Shadow, Drama.  A while ago, I confirmed that all Bare Minerals (from the company Bare Escentuals) products are gluten free.  That includes the foundation, which I am trying now (love it!), eye shadow, and other products. 

There are mascaras and lip products that ARE NOT safe, so don't just go up there and pick out whatever you want.  I'm sticking to the eye shadow and foundation for now, branching out later.  Here's the page on their website that shows their gluten free makeup choices.

I'm currently into the "Drama" eyeshadow.  It's a wonderful shiny onyx color with a hint of warmth.  I can brush this on my lower lid over a light overall base color and be totally done with my eye shadow for the day.  It creates enough contrast to be interesting, but not so much that I look like I'm glammed up for a night on the town.  Now, I can do that if I apply more.  I've done it a few times when I've gone out and the look is fabulous.  But it doesn't take much to make an impact.  Love, love, love it!

When I get the chance to try a few more Bare Minerals products, I'll let you know.

Thanks!

Bare Minerals page - gluten free makeup with video!

Quick update for you.  I just put up a new page for Bare Minerals foundation.  If you are a fan of Bare Escentuals and their Bare Minerals foundation, you'll enjoy seeing more about these products on my website in the near future!  I put up a great instructional video from the CEO herself. 

Please check it out and let me know what you think of my site.  My hope is to make everything more user-friendly and informative than ever before.  I wish I could just "poof" it into existence all at once, but alas, I am human.  I can only do one page at a time.  Be patient and enjoy the construction project :)

If you have recommendations of a product you think should be included in my website, do tell.  Please leave a comment or contact me.

Thanks,

Erika
