If you’re living a healthy lifestyle, most mornings are pretty breezy, but we all know that’s not the case 100% of the time. Whether you were working late, binge studying, or out having way more fun than you planned, some mornings you just feel like a manatee. Today’s recipe is a fun way to make thooose mornings, or any ordinary morning, magical again! Transforming you from feeling like a giant tub of lard, to the beautiful, long-haired, glittering aquatic goddess you truly are, let’s hear it for Mermaid Toast!


The rainforest; a tropical treasure trove, breathtaking in its lush green majesty and one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems on the planet. This magical world is disappearing right before our eyes. As illegal logging becomes more prevalent in  places such as Indonesia, the rainforests there are literally being stripped null. Places that were once inhabited by so many of the world’s most beautiful creatures . . .


Hola chicas! I finally found a 100% Vegan makeup brand that delivers utmost quality and I need to share the wealth. As much as I believe that makeup is not needed, we all know that having the option is truly a blessing. Whether it’s an important work day and you feel like the walking dead, you just love playing/experimenting with makeup, or you want your features to pop along with an outfit you’ve proudly put together, makeup can be an awesome tool to utilize. As common as it is to wear make-up daily, we tend to forget that these products are going directly onto our skin and that whatever they consist of may even make it into our bloodstream. Finding QUALITY products like eyeliners, lip colors, blush, and eye shadows that are NATURAL and gentle on your skin can be a daunting task. After going Vegan and adding that to the check list, I wondered if I’d ever be able to wear make-up again. In the midst of my discouragement I discovered a brand that met ALL my requirements! Red Apple Lipstick came to the rescue, delivering the facts I needed to stay true to my code of ethics, all while offering their products in color pallets that anyone could fall in love with.


Ah yes, the all mystical smoothie bowl. They’re like the unicorn of meals. If you’re into health and are currently using Instagram, I’m sure you’ve come across one of those colorful bowls full of gorgeously decorated, healthy deliciousness, also known as Smoothie Bowls. Most of the time when you’re scrolling through your feed and one pops up, you’ve just gotta scroll back and take a gander at the thing. They’re so bright and happy and have so much going on that you can’t help but think, “I wish I could eat that for breakfast every day!” The thing is . . . you CAN! 🙂 Smoothie bowls are very intriguing and yes, do look pretty complicated, but I can assure you that anyone can make them. For this post I decided to break down the smoothie bowl in hopes to encourage readers to give one a try at home. I don’t mean to demystify the oh-so-magical smoothie bowl, I just think it’s important to share these fun, very healthy meal ideas with anyone and everyone who is trying to live a healthy life!  So here we go . . .


Everyone loves a trip to LUSH. I could spend hours testing their masks, body scrubs, and lotions. Then there’s watching employees plop bath bombs into bowls of H2O, instantly turning them into swirling glittery dreamscapes that I’d give anything to be able to dive right into. But in all my visits and all my trials, I’ve narrowed down my favorite Lush products to a TOP TWO, and I have to share . . .
