A Vegan Girl On Her Life Journey :)

Weekly Purchases!

I love shopping (grocery, for fun…any type is welcome!)!

024

From Trader Joe’s and the local Food Co-Op. (I love their goodies!!!!!)

TJ’s has the best chocolate soymilk ever.

025

Not too thick like the Silk Chocolate soy milk; juuuuuuuuuust right. :) And each is only $1.69!! That’s pretty cheap/afforadable! :D

026

Brownie (without the cinammon – tastes 100 times better!!), PBChocolate bar, and Bobo’s Oat Bars. (Chocolate for me, PB for him) :) My bf ate both the PB bars in one day! What a peanut butter monster he is :) (the girl on the Oat Bars is really cute!) :) They seem to have lots of other flavors, like Almond, Apricot, Banana, Coconut, and much more!!

Got luna bars in a box for the first time ever.

027

15 in each. It’s the same price no matter how you buy it :) This is my emergency food, in case the school loses power or something.  :)

028

Do you think I got this at the food co-op? Nope! Actually from Trader Joe’s, too! (The food co-op has it for $3.75-ish) While at Trader Joe’s, it’s $2.99!!!

056

Same thing with these tooth brushes! It was also $2.99 at TJ’s!!! (around $4 at the co-op!) 8O Recently, throwing stuff away was becoming a concern for me (thinking about how it stays in the landfill) I can recycle these at the Preserve Gimme 5 located at Whole Foods. :) I can recycle any “5” marked containers here (like hummus containers, yogurt containers, etc.) too!! Awesome program!!

This video we watched in English got me thinking about it. (“This is not an environmental class!” is what my teacher likes to say)  I decided to make as much toiletry products (shampoo, soap, conditioner, etc.) that I can, because really, I think that now is the right time to stop being selfish and think about what’s happening to the planet! **DIY Lip balm post to come!!

As of now, I already use homemade conditioner. (2 tbsp apple cider vinegar + 5 seconds squirt of lemon juice + water) This has been working out really good for me. It’s actually helping my hair grow faster!!! I was surprised by this result, so I recommend people using it and continue using it!

This video got me thinking: “What the heck are all those chemicals that I’m putting on my head?!” Looking at the ingredients and searching what they were, they were actually petroleum!!!! Scary? Yes. Want something better? Yes. Apple cider it is? YES!!!

052

Buys Round 2. The chocolate chips and coconut butter were used to make my Nut Free Chocolate Coconut Butter Spread.

016

I love big clips: I like paper clips!!! They keep everything organized, don’t they? ;)

New Finds and Eats!!!

061

Finally found the Chocolate Dipped Coconut!!!! And I found Chocolate Chunk, too!! (WF’s was doing a beauty section make-over) The Coconut one was great! The taste and smell of coconut was good, but it was very oily :) (photos to come soon!) The Chocolate Chunk tasted like coffee!! Yes it is chocolate, but it had a slight coffee taste. Coffee-lovers might  like it :)

This local bakery reopens on February 1st!!!

058

They have vegan pretzels, and I want to go check ‘em out! :)

And I hope this weather comes back soon!

  1. Oh hey…we have the same toothbrush!!! I don’t think we can recyle no 5 plastic here though, but there’s a postage label in the box to send the toothbrush to be recycled when you’ve finished with it!
    I’ll watch out for your homemade lipbalm post…that sounds interesting!

  2. DIY lip balm? Interesting! Looking forward to that. :D
    I do like grocery shopping as well…sometimes I just enjoy walking around the isles and not buying anything..haha…

  3. I haven`t checked out your blog in a long time! I haven`t uploaded new posts to my blog in a long time either so that`s what I`ve been working on lately =).
    Mmmm, Luna bars… My favorites are peppermint and raspberry.
    I love how you`ve started to make your own toiletry products. I will definitely try out the hair conditioner and I look forward to your other DIY posts!

  4. P.S. That video about cosmetics was really good and really well made. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Miss Miho my friend I hope your well :) Maybe one day I will see you around the blog world again?
