9 Vegan Home Remedies for Healthy, Glowing and  Beautiful Skin

Veganism is on the rise! More people are identifying as vegans. more than any other time in history πŸ’š In the U.S. alone, there’s been a 600 percent increase in vegans in the last three years, with the number of those claiming to be vegan growing from 4 to 6 percent between 2014 and 2017. This is an inspiring statistic that proves that more people are moving toward a plant~based lifestyle πŸƒ

A 2016 research study by the Vegan Society also estimated that there are twice as many women than men who are vegan. Some reasons for this are health related, while others are about caring for the concerns of the environment and animal welfare. While these reasons are important, one major concern for women is their skin ~ keeping it beautiful.  Many people desire skin that is flawless, healthy, and beautiful, but finding cruelty-free, vegan products in stores that are suitable for your skin type can be a daunting task.

Natural ingredients are amazing, and there’s so much about the beauty in them that if used over and over, helps maintain clean, beautiful, but most importantly, healthy skin ✨ One of the best options to getting beautiful skin is to consume a diet  with lots of veggies and fruit, since they are so high in vitamins and nutrients. How about using natural, plant~based ingredients to pamper our skin???

Female Owned Indie Brand Spotlight +Get to Know the CEO: Love, Sylvie Seasonal Perfume

When I started thinking about what I wanted to put my efforts into for 2019, positive energy + gratitude were at the top of my list!  2018 was a great year, and I had the opportunity to try & share my experiences with so many different brands & products πŸ’œ I also wanted to branch out and try way more indie brands that vegan friendly, cruelty free, and mostly female owned.  I wanted to do more than just review a product...and that was how this series, Indie Brand Spotlight, was born 😍

I started playing with the Love, Sylvie Seasonal Perfumes Winter Collection in November.  You can check out my review here.  Taking my review a step further, I really wanted to go behind the curtain and learn a little more about it's CEO, Kristen Dumbeck.  Keep reading to check it out πŸ ‹

I Won't Be Writing Any New Year's Resolutions Ever Again + Keeping the Energy Flowing with Gratitude & Intention

Thursday, January 17, 2019

Thank You

This past holiday season I was fairly disconnected from my blog...Should I have written a holiday guide...probably...should I have posted a few holiday looks...sure...but I didn't!  Why?  I don't know...Honestly it just wasn't in me 🀷 My energies were focused on different things...planning time with family, visiting with friends, enjoying the holiday season with a mug of vegan eggnog πŸΊπŸ˜‰ 

Then in the blink of an eye the holiday season came  to an end, and I started thinking about putting together my New Year's Resolutions, so I went back and looked at my resolutions from years prior.  Guess what?  I didn't really accomplish a lot...I tried, but the ebbs and flows of life kind of took over and while it was a great year overall, if I looked at what I set out to accomplish I was basically a failure?!?!

California Pure Naturals Skincare Line options for dry and anti aging skin

You are probably thinking to yourself how I could have dry, winter skin living in South Florida! LOL!  I definitely think there are two factors at play...1st 🠊 my age, I'm 42 and I have definitely noticed my skin getting drier with age starting in my 30s. 2nd 🠊 while we may not get your typical winter down here, the weather fluctuations really mess with my skin. Right now we are looking at temperatures in the 50s after a weekend in the high 80s and then back up in a couple of  days! πŸ˜•

California Pure Naturals really came through with some natural and organic skincare goodies that are helping to keep me extra moisturized this season πŸ’™ Thank you so much!  Keep reading to learn a little about CPN and my thoughts on each of the skincare items I have been using the last few weeks 😊
