Hello! I can’t claim to be an beauty expert or a journalist or a chemist (can piano performance and computer science be any farther away?), just someone who enjoys green beauty, but not the kind who judges preservatives. I like preservatives.

For the curious:

Nephriticus comes from lapis nephriticus, from whence nephrite is derived–a mineral species of Jade. Nice to meet you.

Currently located in:

The charming Baltimore, MD. The beautiful Menlo Park, CA. The sweltering Sacramento, CA. The often raining but lusciously green Seattle, WA.


I will always give my own honest opinion, puns included. All photos are mine, unless otherwise noted. All products purchased by me (*sound of wallet crying), unless otherwise noted.
