Mini Summer Vacation+Huge Salad Bar

Hey you guys! Last weekend I had the most amazing time in Punta Cana at this hotel called Dreams Punta Cana! It was amazing! It had a ton of vegan friendly food and drinks, the pool has Hugeee and it was super pretty and clean!  Here is a little video and pictures of my trip! ❤️

Why I’ve been MIA? well, here is why!

For the past couple of day I’ve been in an adjustment phase due a to huge decision I’ve taken that will change my life for ever and is that… I’ve gone VEGAN you guys!

Let me tell you a little bit more of how that came to be. When June started, it became a really slow month of work at the place where I worked leaving me with a lot of time to watch YouTube and read a ton. so a as days went by and I watched videos, in my YouTube feed started appearing a ton of “what I eat in a day” videos and videos with the term “Vegan” in them. At first I paid no attention to the ones tittles vegan in them because I honestly wasn’t interested and watched the “WIEID” videos until one day I came across a video from JessBeautician (she is amazing and so sweet) and loved how lovely her meals were and they were all VEGAN! so I was like OK, this is kind of a sign… let me look into this thing! and started digging up on YouTube to see if someone was well informed to absorb all that knowledge and see what all that was all about!

In my search I came across a video from Carly Byble saying she has gone vegan, the reasons and thanking YouTubers Natasha and Luca “That Vegan Couple” for her conversion from vegetarian to full on vegan. As it was to be expected, I searched for their channel and was hocked! Everything they said was fed to you in such a kind and “I want to teach you” kind of way and I loved that! So I watched most of their videos and when I came across a video response they made directed to a misinformed girl that has P.C.O.S and claimed veganism made it worse, I felt like that video was specially made since I have that condition and have struggling for years with it, and that’s when it REALLY HIT! I thoroughly looked into the vegan lifestyle and saw the “Best Speech You Will Ever Hear – Gary Yourofsky” and it sealed the deal for me! It is a very graphic and very strong speech but it is filled with truth and facts about how it all works now, and how it is supposed to be working!

I am still in the Learning/Transitioning phase and will take time to learn all about it but I am 100% committed to it, I’ve cut out meat, dairy and eggs and it has been a great decision.

Hope this wasn’t too overwhelming for you guys but I felt like I had to share this with you. thank you so much for reading!

Love,

First Vineyard Experience!

My heart jumped with excitement this past Saturday because we were going to have such an amazing experience at the Ocoabay Vineyard and Club. Me and my boyfriend had a tour of their vineyard and to have a wine testing of their own wine after the tour of the complex. Everyone was super nice and gave us a ton of information about the place and wine. In the pictures you are going to see that the place is gorgeous, paradise indeed! We really loved it. Just wanted to share pictured with you guys!

Seeing where the wine was made and hear the whole process was really cool to us, it was something we’d never seen before (at least not in person) so we were super excited to go in to see the machines and later the bodega to have the wine test.

Work days face routine 🖥

On work days I try to let my face rest as much as possible and not use makeup because the skin needs to breath for it not to break out.

As ugly and tired as I might look in that photo (just woke up😅) I am really proud of how well I’ve been taking care of my face! I have little break put, spots or blemishes. It is completly normal to have a couple, it will all depend in genetics and your diet.

This are the products that I use to achieve my very very subtle makeup that makes me look more awake. I want to clear out that I don’t do the makeup part this every single day, just the days when my skin is showing all the veins in my face (yeah i know, weird) specially on my cheeks.

As soon as I wake up I wash my face while the water heaters is doing its job with this Himalaya Herbal Oil Clear Foaming wash, followed by my Ponds Bio-Hydrating cream to let is soak in while I shower.

After that I use my E.L.F Tinted Moisturizer in the color SAND. I love this product because is very light and does exactly what I want that is to even out my skin tone and hide this veins. To that I apply this shimmery bronzer from AMUSE (can see the name) to my cheeks and to light up my eyes I apply this E.L.F jumbo pen in the most beautiful shimmery gold color.

 For my lips I use in a little amount this lipsticks from MILANI in the color Matte Beauty, its a lovely nude color that compliments my skin tone.

And that is it for my everyday makeup for work! I feel like it gives me a glowy look with out being too obvious. hope you enjoyed it!
