STOP Being A Food Slut!


Food Slut: An individual who indiscriminately eats anything & everything with no regard to impact on the lives of animals, the individual's health, or the ingredients contained within the food product.

Should YOU Get A Vasectomy?

One topic that I've tried various times to make a video about is this whole business about vegans promoting vasectomies - yet every time I film it, I find that I'm unable to articulate my thoughts for some reason. With big names like Durianrider & Vegan Gains promoting sterilization even within the vegan community, I decide to weigh in on why I think vegans SHOULD have children.

Beauty Review: Ellovi Butter


Well, this review is long-overdue! Ellovi is a line of natural, cruelty-free, & vegan products - right now they have some lip butters (tinted & untinted) & butters, which are multi-use products. I love that they are locally made right here in the Bay Area & use only SIX edible ingredients! There is also NO water, making the product long-lasting & highly concentrated. The cliche "a little goes a long way" definitely applies to this product!

Ulta Haul: Pacifica Skincare


After what feels like for-freaking-ever, I finally treated myself to some new beauty products! I went to Ulta in search of some new skincare products. As you know, I LOVE the Yes To Cucumbers line, but I've gone through several rounds & it was time for a change. I came out of Ulta with several Pacifica skincare products, some new launches, but all new to me!

The BEST Exercise For Losing Weight!

As many of you know, I have struggled with my weight for many years due to my PCOS combined with (and as a result of) my eating disorder background.  Since the past 5 years or so, I've always struggled with finding the right workout. I went through mentalities of "no pain, no gain" & that working out was unpleasant for me because I was that weirdo who didn't LOVE working out. I tried a lot of different things - running, walking, treadmill, elliptical, strength training, barre, pilates, etc., but I always felt that I had to make myself do it.

Beauty Review: Mineral Fusion Pressed Powder Foundation


It really feels like FOREVER since I've put up a beauty review! Now that I'm working full time (and then some), I'm getting back into the swing of things, blogging-wise. Today's review is on the most expensive face makeup product I've ever bought: Mineral Fusion Pressed Powder Foundation, which I purchased from Whole Foods for $29.99. It's a steep price, but spoiler alert: TOTALLY worth the splurge!

Product Fail - Mineral Fusion Nail Polish + Top Coat


One of the worst feelings ever is having high hopes about something only to be sorely let down. That's how I felt about the Mineral Fusion Nail Polish in Blushing Crystal & Topcoat. I had heard such great things about their nail polish & since I had just overhauled my nasty nail polishes, I was looking forward to trying something natural. 

My BEST Tip For Preventing Body Acne

If you're anything like me, come summertime, your body starts breaking out in acne (or in my case, HS breakouts) like it's going out of style. Thankfully, this one product I use DAILY has kept me from (knock on wood) suffering from a single outbreak!

Product RAVE! Schar Gluten-Free Bread


If you're mainly gluten-free like I am, you know what a b***** it is to find vegan gluten-free bread that doesn't have the taste or texture of cardboard. I have resigned myself to limiting bread because of this, even though I am practically a bread-a-vore. But, BEHOLD - I found this amazing slice of heaven (see what I did there?) at my local Safeway & I am ADDICTED!

Life Update! Summer 2015 + I'm Back!

Long time no blog! I have so missed sitting with my coffee & just writing & I promise, I did not intend to take A WHOLE MONTH off! Eeek! How time flies! I thought I would take the opportunity to do a life update to let you know where I've been & what my plans are for this blog as well as the rest of my social media!
