I know we all always say this, but I can’t believe it’s already favorites time. Hey, November? Where did you go? Were you even here in the first place? It was a weird stressful month, but despite that I have quite a few favorites to share with you. There’s a little beauty, a little fashion, a little food and a ramble about what happened this month.
We talk about green beauty nearly every week here, yet I’ve never told you how I found it in the first place. It’s no secret that I love nontoxic makeup and skincare, but until about four years ago I didn’t even know it existed. It all started with a series of painful reactions on my face. Though it wasn’t much fun, it changed my makeup bag forever.
Happy Thanksgiving! This year I’m thankful for all of you who read my blog, follow me and leave lovely comments. It’s been so much fun getting to connect with you. Today we’re connecting over some serious comfort food. Needless to say, I’m currently stuffed. This year, Thanksgiving was all about vegan versions of the classics.
I finally used up the last drop of my beloved 100 Percent Pure BB Cream, so of course I took the opportunity to place an order from Petit Vour. It’s my favorite one stop shop for vegan and cruelty free nontoxic beauty. They have a great selection and you earn 20% back in store credit with every purchase. It’s a dream. Everyone loves a good haul, so today I’m showing you what I picked up and how it’s performing so far.
Much to my dismay, as soon as the season changes, so does my skin and it’s not for the better. Winter typically means dry irritated skin that nothing can seem to heal. This year, I’m taking preventive action and saving my skin from winter before snow even hits the ground.
A lot of my posts are connected to healthy living in some way, whether it’s nontoxic beauty or a whole foods vegan diet, mental health or self love, but I haven’t talked about exercise. Well, unless telling you what you should wear while working out counts. The truth is my relationship with exercise is on again, off again and I’m so over it.
Last week I had an epiphany. I spend most of the year wearing a coat and yet I only own a single coat. From a minimalism standpoint, this is great, but as a girl who has always loved fashion, this is a little sad. Cue searching the internet for coats and jackets for every occasion.
You know those giveaways that you always enter, but never win? Yeah, me too, except I actually won an Au Naturale lipstick giveaway! I think you won too because now I can review and swatch three shades of their Eternity Lipsticks, so you know how they perform. Let’s get to it.
World Vegan Day was earlier this week and like others, it prompted me to reflect on what veganism has done for me and why I love this lifestyle so much. It also made me think about how veganism is perceived and the reactions some have had to my lifestyle. Since it’s Friday and we can always use a laugh, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to recount the weirdest things people have ever said to me because I’m vegan.
