Cruelty Free Dupes for Cult Favourite Designer Handbags

After becoming a vegetarian over a decade ago (more recently vegan), I started reading more about the welfare of animals and the abuse that happens in the factories and farms that produce our food and goods. The more I read about the fashion trade and the atrocities that happen to living beings, I started making more conscious decisions to swap out all that I could to cruelty free. I started with food then went onto cruelty free beauty, hygiene and household products. Then I started making efforts to purchase clothing and fashion accessories more consciously. Why should I be able to end or cause pain in the life of a helpless animal for vanity’s sake.

Green Beauty Product of the Week: MUN Skincare’s Aknari Serum

I am trying to be more intentional with my products but this can pose a challenge when I have a line up of products waiting to be tested. That being said, there are always the products that I come back to regardless of how many testing phases bench them and I created the product of the week series to highlight these top performers. This week I wanted to highlight a product that I’ve come back to recently due to winter dryness. I forgot how nourishing, hydrating and plumping this bottle of goodness was. I am SO glad I rediscovered it on my shelf this past month when my skin was giving me a hard time. This product taught me so much about my skin.. it reminded me that simplicity is sometimes the key, that my skin is highly reactive and that I NEED to remember that and come back to the regimen that works best for me: minimalism. Minimalism is the philosophy that MUN Skincare was built on, thanks to Japanese influences from the creator of this coveted skincare line herself. That is why I’m sharing my love for MUN Skincare today and their minimal yet powerful Aknari Serum.

Hemp & Garlic Avocado Dressing & Dip Recipe

Salad dressing are usually loaded with unhealthy preservatives, sugar, and hydrogenated oils. These things wreak havoc on your system and ruin an otherwise healthy diet. I love to make my own salad dressings and this one is one of my favourites for so many reasons. I LOVE avocado and think it is the perfect replacement for creamy dressings if someone is leading a vegan diet. Not only is it a great replacement for taste, but it packs a serious amount of nutrients and healthy fats that your body needs. This salad dressing is a dream for anyone looking to improve the texture of their skin, reduce bloating, or just find healthy replacements for store bought dressings.

Vegan Roasted Asparagus, Chilli Chickpea and Avocado Salad (with Hemp & Garlic Avocado Dressing)

I am a big fan of anything avocado. That being said, I can’t bring myself to just eat them plain all the time, you need to spice things up sometimes. So, I decided to share one of my favourite warm salads with you all. It is vegan, gluten free and packed with healthy fats (something that a LOT of people are missing from their diets). I decided to write up a separate blog for the Hemp & Garlic Avocado Dressing as it can be used for more than just this salad. You can find the recipe for the dressing HERE.

How to Grow Eyelashes and Brows Naturally (Plume Science Serum and Brow Pomade)

Lash and brow growth is a problem I hear about all the time. Just about every one of my girlfriends wishes that her brows were fuller or her lashes were longer and I have seen so many options come up over the years that I just had to share my favourite. This is a great alternative to toxic lash growth serums that damage the health of your lashes and the infamous lash extensions that are popping up in every beauty salon nowadays. What you might not know, is that these extensions don’t exactly do great things for your real lashes underneath. They have been known to cause breakage and have increased ‘falling out’ of natural lashes. I have tried this fad once myself and noticed the negative effects of extensions on my own lashes. So, here is what I would suggest instead.

Green Beauty Product of the Week: 100 Percent Pure’s Eye Bright Masks

As promised, I am going to try my best to keep up with the product of the week series. Unfortunately, life happened and I haven’t gotten to the product of the week for a few weeks (eep, sorry guys). A few weeks ago  i shared all about my love for new found make up company Clove & Hallow and their long-lasting matte liquid lipsticks. This time I wanted to showcase one of my favourite products for the eye area (and most Mothers will agree that this is generally a problem area when you’re sleep deprived). Not only do I think that the idea of a hydragel eye mask is genius, but they are a great pick me up for anyone needing a little extra TLC in that area. They are also a perfect product to use before going out, whether it be a wedding or a night out with friends, because they lay the perfect foundation for make up by plumping up the eye area and reducing that dark blue-grey colour that always seems to set in when you’re tired.

Detoxifying Lentil Turmeric + Chili Soup (Vegan & Gluten Free)

I have been implementing more plant based eating into my family’s diet lately and that means cooking more from scratch. I love testing out new recipes and throwing together spices, herbs and vegetables to create nutrient dense meals. This soup is full of protein, vegetables and gut healing spices. While it may be a bit on the spicy side for most little ones, my husband definitely gobbles this up soon after I make it. You can freeze this soup to warm up for later as well which is great for quick and easy meals and lunches.

The Hidden Risks of Toxic Deodorants + 4 Natural Deodorants that Actually Work

Whether you’ve just dabbled, or you’re head over heels into green beauty, you have likely heard about the  aluminum (amongst other harmful ingredients) lurking in your conventional deodorant stick. This is one of the worst culprits for health decay when it comes to hygiene for many reasons. My intention is never to use ‘scare tactics’ to promote natural living.. so while the information I provide on the effects of using conventional deodorant may be ‘off-putting’, I do think it is important to address the facts and the potential risks of using them. I am glad someone taught me this years ago, so I wanted to share with you some of the reasons I have strayed away from conventional brands of deodorant:
