Hey! I hope you’re all having a great Halloween. I’m not doing anything particularly festive, but I thought we could still celebrate by recapping what happened this month and also taking a peek at what’s to come. October was such a whirlwind. I introduced two new series on the blog, started posting three times a week again, moved and tried my best to juggle everything else.
Happy Sunday! I had a different post planned for today, but sometimes plans are better off ditched. There’s been a resurgence in the My Perfect Imperfections tag on YouTube and I had no intentions of filming a video or writing a blog post about it, but here we are and we’re doing it, so you know I’m a human just like you and not a perfect little blogger alien.
Though it’s a perhaps a bit different from what I typically share, I’m excited to bring this post to you. October 10th was World Mental Day and seeing so many people share their stories and resources was wonderful, but it also made me feel a bit silly because I’ve never really spoken about my experience. I’ve mentioned it here and there, but it deserves to be addressed properly. Rather than droning on without direction, I took inspiration from Rhian HY and will be sharing five things I’ve learned from my mental health disorders.
I’m nearly too tired to function and it’s only Tuesday. It was a busy weekend moving into my new place, but it all went well. Combined with coursework and not enough sleep, I’m feeling a little exhausted. You know what I always have enough energy for though? Shopping.
We have a bit of two-in-one today! I’ve found some really cool and badass ethical and vegan clothing that I would happily buy, but then I ask myself, “It is weird to have more than one pro-vegan t-shirt? Is it weird to even have one that advertises my lifestyle?”
So far this autumn we’ve talked about my fall wardrobe essentials, how to eat seasonally and I thought it was only right to include a festive makeup tutorial because I, like most, love warm reddish tones on the eyes. Today I’m showing you how to create this easy halo eye look using all nontoxic, vegan and cruelty free makeup. I love how cool, effortless and a little grungy it looks. I could happily wear this everyday. I’m not even good at applying eye shadow either, so if I can do this, you totally can.
It feels like I just shared my September favorites, but somehow I already have a few things I’m itching to share. I would save them for an October favorites post, but I have something a little different planned for the end of the month, which I think you’ll enjoy. As for today, there will some products and some rambling because it’s Sunday and on Sundays, we keep it casual.
It’s been a while since we talked about food and today not only am I sharing the easiest hearty vegan stew, I’m sharing tips for eating seasonally and why you should do it in the first place. This stemmed from my own desire to read more about the topic and implement it in my own life. We’re learning together here.
What. A. Week. I really wasn’t anticipating this week to be absolutely overwhelming and draining. This weekend has been all about recharging because I just had to stop and regroup. The to-do list can wait until Monday! I hope you all get some time to relax this weekend too. Since I’m happily cozied up and will be making the tastiest vegetable stew later, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to tell you why I enjoy fall so much. I know the internet goes crazy for pumpkins and cozy vibes, but for me, autumn used to be a bit of a sad time.
Happy Friday! I thought we’d do something a bit different and fun today. Some of my favorite posts to write are green beauty reviews and you all seem to love them too. My last review was rather luxurious and it made me wonder what other high priced items are worth every penny. Here are five nontoxic, vegan and cruelty-free beauty products that are totally splurge-worthy.
