Why I’m giving up…. MEAT!!!

This was not the post I had planned for today but, oh well. I feel like this is something I need to talk about. Like most people I love a good juicy burger, a perfectly grilled steak or seasoned chicken. Hell, I eat chicken almost everyday. The other day at work I was listening to Carli Bybel videos. (What can I say I love a good beauty guru.) Her  Going Vegan?!! video came on. Usually, I would have rolled my eyes && clicked out. However, I actually listened to the entire thing && even clicked the additional links below ‘The Best Speech Ever‘ && ‘Cowspiracy‘. ‘The Best Speech Ever’ was the first one I watched && it really got me thinking. There are two rather graphic/nasty parts in it but, they are both inserted videos so you can skip them. ‘Cowspiracy’ I watched on Netflix a few days later.  They are both very eye opening.


Like, Gary Yourofsky says in the ‘Best Speech Ever’ we have on blinders. And honestly, I did. I knew the way animals were treated was horrible but, it’s completely different when you actually see it. And I’m sure people are going to say but you can get free range grass fed chickens/cows/ect. And you can!! But after seeing that I can’t even think about meat with out my stomach churning.

Well, I guess this is me formally announcing I will no longer be eating meat && transitioning into a more plant based diet. I’ve gone 3 days meat free! Which doesn’t sound like a lot but, I usually eat a sandwich for lunch or chicken for dinner so it has been interesting. I’ve found a lot of good recipes (oh maybe i’ll start doing Meatless Monday posts)imgresI hope you have a wonderful Thursday. Let me know in the comments below if you have seen any of these videos or don’t eat meat either!

Happy National Lipstick Day! 

Happy National Lipstick Day. As a lippie addict I love this day! 💋 I was able to find 33 lippies in about 5 seconds. And that’s not even all of them. I know I have at least 4 in my purse downstairs! 

 Do you see any of your favourites in there? Let me know in the comments below!


What is my face worth?

Hiya guys!

Before I start to tan, the weather gets soooo humid && gross thus causing me to change my makeup routine; I wanted to do a ‘What is my face worth’. I have been seeing these around lately && I think they are absolutely hysterical (in the sense that we spend so much money on make up). Honestly, why is make up so expensive to begin with? I know your thinking, ‘um..hey Kristen there are more affordable brands’. I know, I know! I haven’t used a drugstore brand since I bought my first MAC makeup in 2010. And trust me I more than anyone know how expensive make up is. Hell I am VIB Rouge at Sephora && put my self on a no spend ban this month! Basically, I wanted to make this post to see exactly how much my face costs everyday!
