Cruelty-Free Tampons

Cruelty-Free Tampons

Let’s talk about periods for a second. Not the grammatical type of periods but the ones that make you spend money every month. Or like the media likes to call it “mother nature”. Yes, people, I’m getting there. Oh, how non-delightful it is to have […]

Summer is around the corner and the weather is getting warmer here in California. Which calls for picnics at the beach! I am lucky enough to live super close to one, literally like 2 minutes away. It’s very convenient, let me tell you. No need to […]

Cruelty-Free Subscription Box

Cruelty-Free Subscription Box

I love subscription boxes! It’s the best feeling ever when you receive a box full of goodies.  To be honest it feels like my birthday all over again but in this case, I’m gifting myself some amazing products. Don’t you think? Anyways, before I became vegetarian, I subscribed to a few monthly subscription boxes. Trying new products always excited me. As a beauty enthusiast and skincare fanatic, why not grow my collection, right? Well when I decided to get rid of every non-cruelty free product I owned, I began my search for vegan products. So I thought, what better way to try new products than to subscribe to a cruelty-free subscription box. Although, I had no idea who offered vegan products besides ipsy. But they only offered some cruelty-free products. It wasn’t certain that you would receive them. So I decided to look for a box more practical for my lifestyle.

So I googled, cruelty-free subscription box and Petit Vour came up amongst other ones. But I decided to pick this one. Why? you may ask. Well, for the most part, it’s $15 a month and they pair you up with four high-end sample size products. I personally love the box, inside and out. I mean a pink box with a cute quote that says “the creme de la cruelty-free”. Okay maybe it’s not a quote but a bold statement. But anyways, what comes in the box are all cruelty-free products. Personally, I don’t mind the sample size concept. If any of the products work for me I can just buy the original size on Petit Vour’s website! All in one! If you’re interested in a subscription box that is animal-friendly I would highly recommend this one. It’s affordable, appealing and vegan. An easy way to try out vegan products without the need of researching before you buy.

Ecotools Must Haves (cruelty-free)

Haven’t you heard? Some cosmetic companies use real animal hair for their makeup brushes! Crazy huh!? I always thought that this was true for false lashes where they use mink hair. But nope they still do it, using animals for beauty, anyway. Influenster was kind […]

Best Cruelty-Free False Lashes

I remember owning my first pair of lashes back in high school. It was a pair of dramatic lashes from MAC Cosmetics (a non-cruelty-free brand). Looking back at pictures they weren’t as dramatic as I thought they were but once I started college I ditched the trend. […]

Meatless Meatballs | Vegan

Meatless Meatballs | Vegan

I remember waking up to the smell of caldo de albondigas on Sunday mornings. It was my favorite thing to have during the winter! This Mexican broth traditionally contains meatballs and veggies. But as I turned vegetarian I couldn’t have caldo de albondigas. My mom and I were trying to figure out a way to make this special dish vegan-friendly. So, we basically whipped up a meatless meatball recipe that you can add to your soups or favorite broth. You will need…

6 mint leafs (or cilantro)
1 cup of quinoa
1/4 cup of onion
1 can of chickpeas
1/4 cup of green bell pepper

Making the meatless meatballs:
Blend the chickpeas with a blender or use a fork to smash them together. Cut the bell pepper and onion into tiny squares. After, you want to mix all of the ingredients together with your hand. Grab about a tablespoon size of the blend and roll them into balls. You can add them to your soup like that or preheat your oven to 350 degrees and bake them for 20 minutes to make them more firm.

This recipe makes 15 meatless meatballs; enjoy.

Vegan Oxfords

Yes, I died when we found this perfect pink trailer but can we talk about the weather getting better in California? The days are getting sunnier! Although, I do love gloomy days but it’s nice to see the sun rays again. In that note, we decided to head over to the monthly flea market in Treasure Island. There was a variety of vendors selling their goods to the public. My favorite part was the food trucks. I found a food truck that sold falafels, and I had mine with tofu. Let me tell you, it was so good! I don’t know but something about food trucks makes my heart feel warm inside. My boyfriend, on the other hand, was on the hunt for succulents. Yes, we found some but I found some air plants! I am officially an air plant owner and to be honest, I don’t know what I am doing. Now, I am more of a cactus person.
But anyways, I decided to wear my cruelty free oxfords. The weather isn’t really that warm to wear sandals but it’s good enough to wear my oxfords out. I just think it really puts an outfit together, don’t you think? I am also living for this teal green cardigan. It is super light and makes a basic t-shirt not so basic.
