I, like many other people, wanted a dog when I was a young child (okay, and maybe a pony and a guinea pig and a couple more dogs as well). My parents, like many other parents, didn’t immediately get me one. Why? Because having a pet is a huge responsibility.
While I’m all about people rescuing poor animals from animal shelters and rescue organizations, it’s also important to consider if getting a pet is right for you. It’s not going to be beneficial for you or the animal if you’re going to neglect him/her. I’m not trying to dissuade anyone from getting a pet (if you’re ready, you definitely should because they’re the best!); I’m just saying that you need to think about it beforehand. I’ll even help you with some questions to consider!
Last summer, I finally gave in to all of the hype that I’ve heard about Lush and splurged big time. I was on vacation in Charleston, and I came back with a huge bag of items. Ever since, I’ve been addicted.
The store might have higher prices than other places, but I don’t mind paying a little more. The products smell good and typically last a while (except maybe bath bombs). They’re also sustainable as the majority of their products don’t even have packaging (online shopping has more, but they even list different ways to recycle/reuse their products on the package). Lush also has a recycling program where you can receive a free face mask if you turn in five empty (and clean!) Lush containers. Plus, the company supports a variety of causes, such as banning shark finning, LGBT rights, women’s rights, and more! Everything they sell is cruelty-free and 100% vegetarian as well (some are completely vegan too!).
Hello everyone! Life’s been pretty hectic lately with traveling and work, but since last month was Earth Day, I wanted to do a post with some sustainability tips. Since plastic use is a HUGE problem that anyone can take steps to reduce, I compiled some tips that are easy to do AND help the environment.
Good morning everyone! Today I wanted to discuss a topic that I’m passionate about: being a vegetarian. A few days ago, I actually discovered that this month is ‘Veganuary’ where you can pledge to go vegan for the month (the site has a lot of information about going vegan if you’re interested). Although going vegan interests me and I do eat mostly vegan when I cook for myself, I’m still just a vegetarian for now. Who knows, that may change in the future. Continue reading Being a Vegetarian→
