These beautiful birds have the right idea, it’s feeding time! I am currently contemplating what to have for lunch as I post these beauts. Fun fact: I am utterly obsessed with animals! I used to work in the Veterinary field and miss it every day. Who else out there is an animal lover? πŸ‘€ #cococaptured #lunchtime #birds #animals #massapequapreserve

In honor of my final day of the October Vegan Challenge 🌱 and Halloween, I’ve decided to make myself some vegan/ non-dairy KitKats (the quick version)! I usually steal them out of the bowl all night as we wait for trick-or-treaters but this year that was not an option. SO I made a vegan version instead with dairy-less chocolate chunks & waffers. Quick! Check out my instastories of my step by step process before it disappears! Although it may not look Pinterest worthy, it sure taste great! I am just happy I got to still enjoy my fav #HalloweenTreat πŸŽƒ #CocoVeganChallenge #VeganCandy #VeganTreats #HalloWIN #contest @Influenster

It was the perfect day to play in the #complimentary makeup gifted from @influenster πŸ’„ The Maybelline #mattemetallics lippies are shimmery & dark, perfect for fall. Your girl loves a vampy lip. swipe πŸ‘‰πŸΎ to see #smokedsilver & swipe πŸ‘‰πŸΎ again to see #moltenbronze. I will def be adding molten bronze to my lippie rotation, & am still feeling out how I like smoked silver lol. It may be a bit too silver for my liking. What do you guys think? πŸ€” #influenster #bloggermail #falllipstick #boxbox

When you have long arms like mine, men's shirt are perfect bc of the extra length on them. They also are often made of thicker materials so it's looks heavier and expensive than some of the female versions. So tip: don't forget to look in the men's dept when shopping πŸ˜‰

Vegan day #10 πŸ₯’ β€’
How I feel: My energy is up! But my tummy is still not full πŸ˜”But all jokes aside, I do feel an improvement on how my body feels and operates after a meal. I do not feel tired and weighed down, as I normally would. & it has been fun creating new and delicious dishes! β€’
What I've learned: As a Vegan of someone who is following a healthy eating lifestyle, meal prep is a must! It is not a good feeling to be hungry at the end of a busy day and not have immediate access to a hearty and healthy meal. That is when the junk food starts calling you name πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈβ€’
β€’
β€’
This simple dish shown above is baked potatoes and asparagus flavored with balsamic vinegar, seasoning, and garlic infused olive oil. It's was a quick Monday night dish to whip up at the end of a long day & easy to take to work for lunch. β€’

I usually love to mix my own clay masks for the perfect concoction for what my face and skin needs. But when you live a busy life, like many of us do in NY, sometimes you need a great product that you can quickly slab on & go! These 3 right here are my go-to quick facial clay masks for those busy mornings. I choose which #SheaMoisture facial mask I use by observing what my skin is lacking that day. Lately I've been reaching for the #RadianceMudMask with songyi mushrooms to combat my dull skin. What do you look for in a clay mask??β€’

Day 4 of the #CoCoVeganChallenge and I am still going strong! What I have learned so far: I consume a lot more dairy, in my usual diet, than I would like to admit. Oh and hanger is REAL. β€’
β€’
β€’
For breakfast this morning I made my usual green smoothie into a yogurt consistency, and topped it with berries & chia seeds. β€’
β€’
β€’
In the green smoothie: spinach, frozen Mango, water, a wee bit of apple sauce, 1 banana, chai seeds and that's it! It's so creamy, sweet & filling! #veganchallenge #greensmoothie #breakfastofchamps β€’

How about the rest of you doing the #veganchallenge? What was for breakfast/ lunch??
