"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." -Maya Angelou
I just wanted to start things off with some nice words to live by. Keep on building the empire that you love my darlings..!
Now let's get on topic...so this summer I was really interested in veganism after doing research and watching Raw Alignment on YouTube for extensive periods of time. Not trying to make excuses, but I realized a few weeks in how difficult it was to completely commit with the type of lifestyle I currently have. Surprisingly though, I did pretty well during my trial with eating by the rules and I still try to eat vegan food as much as possible. For the most part I was never really into eating meat and I avoid dairy a lot anyway because it can have negative effects on the body.
Even though I do sneak gelato here and there, I avoid using everyday products that harm animals and the environment. There are so many cosmetic lines that test on animals and it kills me inside to know this when it could easily be avoided. Honey, I promise there are so many other brands you can contour and highlight with besides the ones that are harming the bunnies. Let me introduce you to one, Dusty Girls. They sent me their Natural Mineral Lip Shine in Argyle Pink and I'm so impressed with the formula. It is super mousturizing and pigmented, and best of all it doesn't contain any chemicals or carmine which is crushed beetle wings that are in a lot of common lip products. Make sure to read labels on your makeup! Once you go natural, you never go back.
