Actress, mother of two and friend of Racked LA Shiva Rose took some time out of her multi-tasking schedule to chat with C Magazine about her eco-holistic blog, The Local Rose. Launched last February, the blog features organic food recipes, health tips, green living ideas, sustainable beauty spotlights, eco-friendly fashion and the occasional event recap.
Admitting that she has an activist nature (she was arrested twice for protesting during the Iraq War), she tells C that the blog was created to present "an alternative to people" and describes The Local Rose as the hippie version of Gwyneth Paltrow's sometimes-parodied lifestyle platform, Goop. After a quick perusal of TLR, we discovered some cute natural linen aprons, a good recipe for white bean and tomato soup and an interview with a real life "wood nymph." We'll be reading.
