Spring Pamper Routine – Vegan & Cruelty-free

Spring pamper routine

Some of my most highly requested posts are cruelty-free pampering routines – I’m glad more and more people are interested in Vegan & Cruelty-free beauty. So now it’s the perfect time to do a new one as Spring is here and I’ve changed quite a few of the products I love & use (also thanks to some massive hauls in the past few weeks). Today I’ll be pairing some old favorites with some newly found absolute must-haves. I try to do this pamper routine once a week, mostly on Sundays when I’m back from trail running. Usually I’m not this high-maintenance, I even have simple minimalist routines during the week....

May 2016 favorites: Vegan beauty & lifestyle

Hello beautiful rose buds! I hope you’ve been having an amazing day. We’ve just wrapped up May so I decided to post some of my May Favorites, from beauty to books to TV stuff & more… Without further rambling, let’s get started on some May Favorites ^.^ I’m loving… During May I’ve made my second order on the lovely website Natural Forme, to get some more original Savon d’Alep for my husband (it’s the only product he wants in the shower lately) and since I was already on the site, I got some of the products that turned out to be my faves for the month of May, namely: the...

My top 5 cruelty-free products for glowy, radiant skin

My top 5 cruelty-free products for glowy, radiant skin

  Today I want to share with you my top 5 cruelty-free products for glowy, radiant skin that will help you in your quest for beautiful, glowing skin. If you know me, you know that I like to keep things pretty simple for everyday looks, and I feel that healthy, radiant, flawless skin is all you really need to feel beautiful. When you have a good-skin day, you don’t even feel the need to apply tons of makeup (unless you really want to). But please do remember that skin, being the biggest organ of your body, cannot simply look healthy if you don’t feed it the right way: a plant-based,...

5 ways to welcome Spring

5 ways to welcome Spring

5 Ways to Welcome Spring How did you celebrate the arrival of Spring? We spent the night over in a cabin in the mountains, and woke up at 6am with the sound of birds chanting to the day. We witnessed an amazing sunset (photos coming soon on Photo.feub.net) and then sat quietly while the sun came up, feeling at peace. For years I’ve only really appreciated and celebrated the arrival of Autumn, but now I think the best way to step into Springtime is to actually acknowledge that Nature around us is changing, waking up and therefore our bodies, too, are undergoing some type of transformation. This is why I...

My favorite skincare oils

My favorite skincare oils

Today I’m very happy to talk to you about something that has been requested many many times: my favorite skincare oils. I’ve been using oils in my skincare for the past few years, way before the whole “coconut oil frenzy” started, as I’ve always known that pure, natural oils like olive oil was used in very simple beauty routines by my own grandmothers – extra-virgin olive oil being the jewel of the Mediterranean area. A little dab of olive oil was used to moisturize face and hair already a long time ago, when skincare creams were a luxury. The products I’m going to show you are 100% natural, cruelty-free and...

October favorites: Vegan beauty & lifestyle

October favorites: Vegan beauty & lifestyle

October has always just been “the month before my favorite month” but this year things have changed. Since moving to Vosges, Autumn has taken a whole new aspect. It has always been my favorite season, but mostly because of childhood memories of life in the Prealps region. The past couple of years we’ve skipped Autumn altogether, moving from a warm to a deadly warm area. This time around, October has been a blessing, with leaves changing color everyday from green to red to yellow, cold nights, starry skies, a mix of melancholic and poignant beauty. We even had a couple of days with snow! I don’t know what November will...
