What Is A Swamp Cooler And Do You Need One?

What Is A Swamp Cooler And Do You Need One?
I remember when I first moved from Louisiana to California (about 17 years ago), a coworker mentioned that she used a swamp cooler to beat the aggressive Los Angeles heat. As someone who was born and raised near actual swamp land, I thought it was weird that I had never heard that term before. I have since learned that an evaporative cooler (AKA “swamp cooler”) is something that can only be used to beat the heat in DRY climates. It takes hot, dry air, mixes it with water, and produces a cool ocean-like breeze. I have traditional window unit air conditioners in my LA apartment, but I’m on an...

Where Has Jen Been? Thyroid Cancer and Other Nonsense

Where Has Jen Been? Thyroid Cancer and Other Nonsense
So maybe you’ve noticed the lack of blog posts on My Beauty Bunny lately? Sorry about that! I have been MIA lately, and if you follow me on social media, you probably know why. I found out in mid-June that I have thyroid cancer. At first I was pretty devastated, but I poured myself into 24/7 research to learn everything I could about the disease. It turns out that thyroid cancer is what they call “the best kind of cancer to get.” That was comforting to me in the beginning, but that seems to generally piss off most people with thyroid cancer, who say there is no GOOD cancer. While that may ...

Cruelty Free Breathable Nail Polish from 786 Cosmetics

Cruelty Free Breathable Nail Polish from 786 Cosmetics
786 Cosmetics: Cruelty Free and Breathable Nail Polish Review and Swatches There’s a cruelty free and vegan nail polish brand I want to put on your radar – 786 Cosmetics. 786 is a Halal and 11-free polish brand that is inspired by cities around the world. My nails have been SO damaged and dry lately, and I’ve noticed that the longer I wear polish, the worse it gets. I’ve given up on gels because they just make my nails worse (and the removal can be brutal). I was excited to try 786 Cosmetics nail polish, because they promised the formula was healthy and “breathable.” Sounds good to me! ...

Best Supplements for Health and Beauty Hey bunnies! Today I am sharing my top three ALL TIME favorite supplements for beauty and health. These are the ones I absolutely cannot live without.

How Do You Know You’re Healthy if You Don’t Check?

How Do You Know You’re Healthy if You Don’t Check?
Biohacking: My Experience with Life Extension Lab Tests I’m certainly not perfect, but I like to keep healthy habits. I try to do the right thing with diet, exercise, supplements, chiropractic care, massage, and other self-care. But I’m a data-driven person. I want to see numbers and results, and not just leave things up to chance. Have you ever asked your doctor to run a test on something, only to be told that your symptoms are not severe enough for them to test (or that your insurance won’t cover it)? When it comes to certain lab tests, I don’t like to wait until there’s something ser...
