What are your favorite Vegan Meals or snacks!?

*Vegan Cuts Beauty Box is $22.95 a month. It is cruelty free, vegan, and usually pretty clean beauty items. 5-6 full or deluxe sample size. *

This months Box contains….

Crazy Rumors Ruby Red Grapefruit Lip Balm $3.50

I think Crazy Rumors is my favorite lip balm brand.

But, I am not big on Grapefruit, so I may let someone else have this so they can discover the brand as well.

Use code VCUTS15 for 15% off your order until 9/1/18

Sade Baron Rhein Body Lotion $8

This Lotion is really light weight- great for summer. It has a light scent of peppermint and ylang ylang. Rhein just became my new desk Lotion!

Sappo Hill Bamboo Charcoal Soap $3

I love using soap bars as much as possible. Much less waste.

This one doesn’t really have a scent, so it will be perfect for the face or more sensitive areas.

My Magic Mud Toothpaste $4

I have seen Magic Mud products at TJ Maxx. I actually see a lot of natural brands there. It is where I get my deodorant. In case you cared.

I am really interested to see if this activated Charcoal tooth paste works. I drink A LOT of teas and coffees. So, if it works I’ll probably buy the lines products in full size.

Yes To Triple Masking Kit $4

We al know I already love the Yes To products. I think it is really cool that they have come out with these kits and I am excited to give it a try. I have never done multimasking before!

Zatik Naturals Gratitude Face Serum $32

The Gratitude Serum is meant to hydrate skin and soften fine lines. It isn’t as liquidy as other serums I have tried, and I really like that. The Serum has a fresh earthy scent.

*use code ZATIK20 for 20% off your order on their site until 10/31/18

Balanced Guru Love Aromatherapy $15

This tiny thing is $15?!

Anyway, I love aromatherapy so I was glad to see this in the box.

I can’t find what oils are in this on the box, but whatever it is it smells beautiful!

$69.50 worth of awesome cruelty free and vegan products for just $22!!! Vegan Cuts literally never lets me down.

What are your favorite masks to multimask with?

Goddess Provisions July 2018 | Water is Sacred

I love being on and in the water. It makes me feel so at peace. But, I have to force myself to drink water. For some reason I just hate it! I wish I could be one of those super healthy people who only drink water.

This months Goddess Provisions Box is centered around water. Goddess Provisions is around $30-35 a month.

This months mantra:

“I allow transformation to flow through me with grace.”

I love it! Now, for the contents of the box.

Mazi Turkish Towel $20

We all know what a towel is for. The size of this towel is a bit bigger than a hand towel. I think it will be perfect to dry my hair. My hair is pretty wavy with some curls, it gets really frizzy and regular towels don’t help it.

I got the one The is black and gray tie dye. There were two other options, but I got the one I wanted!

House Of Intuition Bath Salts $8

Sadly, I do not have a bath tub. Just a standing shower. I will be sending this to my little sister in a care package. I do think this is a nice little extra to throw in a gift to someone.

I am currently looking for an apartment, a bath tub is one of my requirements.

Love By Luna Nail Polish “Scorpio” $18

This shade is a dark blue/green with glitter. I can not wait to get it on my nails! It is infused with obsidian and is meant to be worn during times of introspection and healing.

Shanti Bar Spirulina Bar $3

I love getting snacks in this box. Check out my snap chat or Instagram soon to see what Myself or Coty thought of this bar!

Coal Miners Daughter Sea Salt Spray $12.50

I used sea salt spray for the first time while I was in Mexico and I love how it made my hair look. I am going to have to give this one a go! Oh, it smells really good by the way.

Art Naturals Konjac Sponges $10

I already have this set and am currently using the white one. I am really liking it, so I am happy to have gotten more.

Sodalite $5

Sodalite promotes peace and tranquility during murky waters. Carry it to remind your self to trust your instincts and feel a deeper connection to your intuition.

I think I am going to start carrying this stone with me on nights out. We are in the St.Louis area. For the most part it is not as bad as people make it seem, but you can never be too safe!

I love this box!! Every month it inspires me. If you enjoy crystals and believe in their power and the true inspiration and power of Mother Nature, like I do, than you NEED this subscription. Honestly, it has been a great tool in helping me grow my beliefs and knowledge.

What is one product you want to see me review? I am really needing ideas.

BeRad Cosmetics | Cruelty Free/ Vegan Faux Mink Lash & Natural Adhesive Remover.

First, let me start off by saying how thankful I am for this package. I rarely buy lashes, because I never use them. Now, I am stocked up for a while!

About the brand:

Be Rad Cosmetics is all about living your life as fully and consciously as possible.”

Be Rad is a cruelty free, vegan, and mindful beauty brand. Who, if I do say so myself, makes so stunning lashes.

Each pair is $20 and there are 4 different styles. My favorite is “Boss Babe All Day.”

Here they are on my eyes here!

And here!

You can purchase them, and the three other last styles, Here.

The lashes are easy to apply, keep in mind I rarely wear lashes. (Thank god there was some duo lash glue in the package!!)

The band isn’t too wide, but it isn’t too thin either.

Is $20 steep? I think so ( if it wasn’t for their other products) But, compared to similar products it is on par as far as price goes.

With the next Be Rad product we will be discussing, these lashes will last ages.

The Lash Adhesive Remover

Be Rad came out with a NATURAL lash adhesive remover!

It cost $25 and comes with 2-10mL bottles. One of the wash the second the rinse.

This may seem like a small amount of product, however, you only need one-two sprays of each!

The remover is made with essential oils that are plant based. Completely free of harsh toxins and chemicals.

Before

As you can see, there is a ton of build up on my lashes.

So first I sprayed them with the wash. The let it sit for 4 minuets.

Then I peeled the Adhesive off with tweezers. It came off the first lash super easy. Not so much the second.

Once I got the adhesive off, I sprayed it with the rinse, the them sit for a bit, then stored them away!

After

All that build up is gone.

I will be honest it took a bit on the second lash. But, it did come off.

If I wore lashes more often this is 100% a system I would repurchase.

Final thoughts?

I love the lashes, when I wear them these will definitely be my go to lashes!

The adhesive remover is a fantastic idea, and I will definitely use it. If I get more in to lashes I will purchase it once I run out. You can get it Here, for your self!

I am very much so looking forward to see what Be Rad has in store for the future. They are a cruelty free, vegan, and mindful brand. What isn’t to fall in love with?

Goddess Provision June ‘18| Sacred Womb Wisdom

Today, has been a day. Work, then the doctor, then grocery shopping. Finally time to relax and look in my Goddess Provisions Box!

But first, a question. Let me know if any of you would be interested in seeing vegan grocery and lifestyle hauls. I never talk about it, but that could be helpful. Even just on instagram!

Goddess Provisions is *I believe* around $30 a month. It is full of crystals and natural and vegan products to support you on your mental, spiritual and physical journey.

This months motto. “I’m connected to my womb space. I embody the divine feminine power of creation.”

This months Box is all about nurturing the mighty power that is in your womb. I know I never think about how truly powerful the womb is, so this months Box was pretty eye opening.

Yoni Crystals Vesica Pisces Bracelet $22 Value

Wear this sacred symbol on your wrist as a reminder of the divine creative essence that resides in your womb.”

This bracelet is beautiful and delicate. It is bad made in Bali. I am definitely going to make a habit of wearing it. I think it will be a great self love tool, looking at my wrist and being reminded how much creativity and power is held in my body.

Calm-A-Mana Balance Drops $17

This hormone balancing flower essence combines clay sage, rose, yarrow, and lavender to increase feelings of comfort, stability and resilience.”

I am a firm believer that these sort of drops work. I would not replace my medicine with them, but I do think they help.

You can definitely taste the sage in these, but they don’t taste bad at all!

Sacred Lotus Yoni Steam $7

“Cleansing herbal yoni steam to support a healthy menstrual cycle, reduce stress and connect to your feminine essence.”

So, you mix some of the bend with steaming water and place it under you and use a blanket to trap the steam, then relax in bed for an hour.

This sounds great to use on a relaxing Sunday at home.

Cosmic Collage medicine Bag $25

Isn’t this bag beautiful? It is made by an artist @cosmiccollage on instagram. I am going to use this to hold some tampons and panty liners in my purse.

(If you are interested in a post about more natural feminine care let me know!!)

Lesser Evil Paleo Puffs $1.50

These vegan and grain free puffs are made with nutrient dense ingredients including cassava and sweet potato, so you can feel good snacking on them when you’ve got a savory craving.”

SO GOOD!! They taste like salt and vinegar chips. I am going to have to pick up some and other flavors.

Code Goddessle saves 15% on lesser evil.com

The texture is nice, and the flavor is one I love.

Little Moon Essentials Cramp Belly Rub $13.50

“Massage this oil featuring camphor, arnica, clary-sage, and wintergreen over your womb space to help reduce menstrual cramps.”

I have never tried a product like this before, but I really hope it works. Who doesn’t want relief from menstrual cramps? Those things suck!

Amethyst Cluster

“Amethyst is known to help bring balance, soothe the mind and calm emotions. Keep this crystal near when doing womb healing.”

Amethyst is my favorite crystal. As someone with BPD anything calming and mind soothing is what I want to have around me. It is also my spawns birthstone.

This months Box was a 10 outta 10 for me. I love it’s message and everything in it.

What subscription box do you want me to review?

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box | Blossoming Beauty

Hi guys.

It is storming so bad here. I wish it would storm at night rather than during the day. I love stormy nights. Stormy days just make me want to be lazy and sleep all day.

Which is why I am doing another unboxing rather than one of the other posts I had planned.

Akar Skin Duo $17

This little duo came in the cutest bubble wrap, it’s baby pink and the bubbles are hearts.

The larger sample is a toning mist and the smaller one is an eye serum. I have never tried anything from this brand so I am very intrigued. Especially in the eye serum.

Anointment Natural Skincare Rose Toner $7.50

This little toner has rose hydrosol and witch hazel. I am excited to try it, I love spray toners.

Dirty Lamb Coffee Scrub $12

This is the cutest thing. I love lambs! The scrubs smells just like coffee. Body scrubs are some of my favorite things. I can’t wait to give it a try.

Franklin and Whitman Face Mask $24.95

I need to start using these powder masks more, I am really starting to pile them up. This one is made with raw cacao, tumeric, and activated charcoal. It sounds super cleansing.

Glamour Doll Makeup Black Gel liner $2.99

You can’t use a black liner that is inexpensive, cruelty free and vegan? The only glamour doll makeup products that I have tried are the Lisa Frank ones so I am excited to try more.

That is this months Box. A ton of awesome products!!!

What is your favorite Glamour Dolls Makeup item?

Goddess Provisions May 2018 | I can, I feel, I am

Welcome to my blog!

I have become obsessed with The Last Podcast On The Left. I listen to it all day while I work. If you aren’t easily offended and are really in to creepy things and serial killers, you should definitely give it a listen! I listen to them on Spotify. I fits my sense of humor really well, I think it’s hilarious.

On a completely different note, my May Goddess Provisions box arrived!

This months mantra is: “I’m made and one with earth energy.”

It seems that everything in the box is focused on the Root, Sacral, and Solar Plexus. This month we also got a code to use for a free ebook download from The Sisterhood Moon all about the lower chakras.

Violet Gray Solar Plexus Charm $39

This Charm is meant to be worn on a necklace or bracelet to help you connect to your inner power and self confidence.

The solar plexus charm is very cute. It’s neat to get a rather pricey little Charm. I would love some more self confidence, I think I will place this Charm on the choker necklace I wear everyday.

Kailo Solar Plexus Essence $42

“Apply this essential oil blend infused with citrine, the color yellow, sounds and affirmations to clear blockages and energize the Solar Plexus.”

The scent of the essential oil is rather citrusy and invigorating. I think this will be a good oil to take to work, that way I can apply it when I start to feel like I can’t finish everything.

Citrine $4

This stone energizes the Solar Plexus and sacral chakras. Carry it to connect with your personal power and creativity. “

I actually have another citrine stone that sits in the pot of my other cactus to give it the self confidence to grow. I may put this one with one of my succulents as well. Or, I may carry it on my person to help boost my confidence and creativity!

Liliac and Willow Candle $12

“Light this beautiful sky candle dressed with flowers and cedar and let the essential oil blend bring you into your body.”

This blood orange and patchouli candle is beautiful and smells fantastic! I love this little tin candles I have gotten.

Soapylayne Massage Balm $26

This foot rub is infused with ginger, cyress, vetiver, and patchouli. It also has to little stones in it, but I am not too sure what they are or what purpose they serve. I also assume you could use this balm to massage parts of the body that are the feet. But, if you do use it on your feet it will go great with the last product.

Little Moon Essentials Foot Bath $5.50

*use the code goddess10 for 10% off at littlemoonessentials.com until 5/31/18*

I am so excited to have a good soak. Wearing heels at work really kills my feet, so this soak is going to come in handy. I usually wouldn’t go for a peppermint scent, but in this case I think it will be really cooling and calming on my aching feet.

That is it for this months Box. I am really happy with everything! I love being delivered crystals and aromatherapy items each month. Learning about and making use of everything really has helped to calm my head space and surroundings.

What is your favorite aromatherapy item?

Vegan Cuts Makeup Box | Springtime Bliss

Hi everyone!

We are going to start formatting posts a bit differently to make them a bit more personable and fun. We are going to start each post with a random fact about me, or things I like, or something I learned the day I wrote the post!

So, again. Hi everyone! I am Manda and I absolutely LOVE frozen grapes.

…and the Vegan Cuts Makeup Box! It comes quarterly and I believe is around $35. It is usually 4 full sized makeup items and one “tool” item.

This quarter is “Springtime Bliss”. It is finally spring 2018 here, and I am so ready for it and over the cold.

Eco Minerals Mineral Bronzer “Holiday” $29

The first item in the box is a semi matte loose bronzer. For some reason I never use my loose bronzers, but I am going to try to make a point to! There is a nice amount of product and there is a sealable sifter in the jar. Which is important.

I think the shade might work pretty well for me. As you can see, I am rather fair. It doesn’t seem too insanely pigmented, so I think I will be able to work with this.

Emani Vegan Cosmetics Organic Soy Infused Mascara “Black” $20

The tube of this mascara is really sleek and pretty. Of course, it is going to end up looking terrible in my possession, but I love the presentation. I love trying new mascaras. I will definitely up date you all on this one once I give it a try. Oh, and this mascara is also supposed to be a lash treatment.

Real Her “I feel Beautiful” EyeShadow Palette $28

Real Her is a real hit or miss brand for me. Sometimes I love the items, sometimes I hate them. I have another Real Her palette the “Be your own kind of beauty” and I really dislike it. It was all Shimmer and satins that we’re a bit more than Satin. It creased on me so bad and took AGES to blend.

This Palette, however, actually has mattes!! And the formula feels much different.

The shades in this one look really pretty, and definitely like a palette I would reach for a lot.

I really like the color palette you get to work with. The light shades don’t swatch too nicely, but I will have to see how they perform on the eyes.

Thrive Causemetics Glossy Lip Mark “Joann” $26

I have tried a few things from Thrive. I really love their cream blushes and they look great on the lips. Needless to say, I am really excited about this Glossy Lip Mark. It is definitely a shade I will use as well.

I think it is going to look beautiful on the lips.

Terre Mère Cosmetics Blending Brush $29

I love getting brushes in subscription boxes. Especially when they are pricey like this. I think it’s pricey anyway. Can’t be mad at a good blending brush!

That is it for the box!

I need to know y’all what kind of posts would you like to see!?
