Today we’re going to chat about some of my Summer Essentials… it’s already mid-June, I can hardly believe it, and Summer is basically here :) These are the things I can’t live without during the Summer months, when we are outdoors most of the time, hiking, running, having picnics, riding our bikes, visiting & sightseeing, going to the lake, reading a book under a tree, you name it. So let me tell you about my Summer Essentials but I would actually love to hear what are some of the things that are essential for *your...

Vegan Christmas gift guide under $50

…Do you love Christmas time, or do you loathe it? I have a love-hate relationship with it, let me explain. I love that “Christmas is coming” feeling: baking cookies, decking the halls, creating a special candle-lit atmosphere, I love wrapping little gifts, I love the memories of simpler times when the whole family would gather around the Christmas tree at midnight to open carefully-wrapped presents – but I just can’t stand the turn that the holidays took these past few years. You see people running around desperately in loud shopping malls, searching for expensive gifts for people they might not like much, who will in turn get gifts that do...

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...
