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.
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?”
