When I first read Shiva Rose’s story about having an eco-awakening after giving birth to her first daughter, I have to say I immediately felt that she and I were somehow kindred spirits. Shiva’s blog, The Local Rose, celebrates the natural, holistic, and healthy lifestyle that the actress and activist tries to embrace in her every day life. The Local Rose has it all—recommendations for herbal supplements, beauty products, and gardening tips. Her pictures are beautiful, but the wealth of information Shiva presents to her readers? That’s the real beauty of her blog. Check Shiva out!
