Summer Smoothie Bowl Recipe :)

Taken from Instagram: @daniellejanay

I am a big fan of smoothie bowls, and today I am going to share with you guys this delectable Key Lime Nice Cream!

(Inspiration from @purelykaylie on IG)

With the sudden increase in temperature, I have been been loving this cold and refreshing treat that actually constitutes as a balanced raw vegan meal! :)

Here are all the ingredients you will need:
  • 3-4 large frozen bananas
  • 1 cup of baby kale
  • 1 cup of spinach
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1/3 cup coconut water
Using a high speed blender or food processor, blend the greens with the coconut water and the lime juice, then add in the bananas + blend til smooth~
Finally, top as you please!
I topped mine with some raw cacao nibs, hemp seeds, chia seeds, and frozen blueberries :)

This smoothie bowl is packed with vitamins and antioxidants, so it's a great way to make sure you're getting some beneficial nutrients into your systems!

Enjoy!

Favorite Face Mask | Lush Cosmetics


So recently I stopped by my all-time favorite store, Lush, to pick out a face mask that will help calm my crazy skin. I have had many of their face masks before (another favorite: Don't Look At Me mask; it has a beautiful blue hue and rice for exfoliation), but this time I wanted something that was a little more gentle but still effective!

After getting suggestions from the sales associates, I decided on Rosy Cheeks, which contains calamine powder and rose to help calm the skin.

Since this is a fresh face mask, it has to be kept in the fridge! Not only does this help preserve the mask, but putting a cold face mask on your face helps to reduce puffiness and will tighten your pores (not to mention it feels absolutely refreshing!). 




I love Lush because they add little photos of the people who make each product! This mask was made by Kate; thanks Kate! :)

The mask is 100% vegan + cruelty free and contains all natural ingredients such as:

- Calamine Powder
- Rose Clay
- Rose Petals
- Rose Oil

I definitely recommend this mask to anyone dealing with redness, puffiness, or just those of you who have sensitive skin!

Let me know what your favorite masks are :)

Kylie Lip Kits are Vegan?!


So, I recently visited kyliecosmetics.com, Kylie Jenner's Makeup site, and stumbled upon the FAQ where it was stated that all of the products (excluding Candy K colors) are vegan & cruelty free!
*I believe there is carmine, which is from insects in Candy K*

This is great for the vegan & cruelty free movement because so many young people are buying and reviewing these products, and it is important to show that you can make quality items without harming animals!

It was also an awesome find for me because I have been obsessed with all the pictures on Instagram of girls with their new Kylie Lip Kits!

During her latest launch, I bought one of each type of product that she had:

  • True Brown K Matte Liquid Lipstick & Liner 
  • Heir Metal Matte 
  • Like Gloss
All of the products are extremely pigmented and they don't seem to dry out your lips!


Have you tried any of the Kylie Lip Kits? I want to buy 22 when it's back in stock!
