Give Peas A Chance

Posted Nov 06 2012 10:30am

Happy Election Day! I hope you all made it out to vote!!

I have a big announcement...I've gone Vegan!

I have been a huge animal lover all of my life. During High School and most of my college years, I was a  vegetarian. I never was Vegan because I considered that to be too "extreme." 

The past few weeks David and I have been making our home more eco-friendly.

In addition to using eco-conscious cleaning solutions and detergents, We started using organic cotton reusable towels instead of wasteful paper towels. I picked up a cute giraffe set from Oh Little Rabbit Esty's store. They have adorable designs. I can't wait to order more sets to mix and match.

I started looking into more organic make-up and brushes. I am now using Juice Beauty  makeup and EcoTools brushes. I love both brands! The makeup is so natural looking. The foundation has a light natural citrus smell instead of fake chemicals. My skin is super soft and my complexion is glowing! I plan to do a full review post on all the products in the future. I'm also looking forward to start using Juice Beauty's skincare products as well.  

These products lead me to Alicia Silverstone's website The Kind Life  . After browsing Alicia's site, I decided to pick up her book The Kind Diet.   I quickly realized being Vegan isn't really as extreme as I previously thought. I recommend everyone do a bit of research into how awful the meat and dairy industries are for your body and the environment! In today's market, there are so many yummy and healthy alternatives. I ended up also buying a hardcopy of this book.  I wanted easy access in my kitchen to prepare my new delicious Vegan meals.

A few other changes that I've made is switching my Birchbox subscription in favor of Goodebox . Goodebox provides trial sized healthy, eco-sensitive, innovative & effective beauty and personal care products, along with samples of natural and organic health and wellness products as well as occasional sustainable living goods.
