Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
Hey How Are You?
It's still warm for December here. Perfect weather to spend the day with me as I run errands and spend some time visiting a new park.
This was a pretty chill day. I did a few errands and then relaxed in a pretty park by the river.
Have a great weekend!
Happy Wednesday ~
I hope you are well and staying out of the Thanksgiving madness. I'm still traveling/working and I just wanted to share something really quick with you. I'm staying at a holiday house and some of the furnishings impressed me enough to look them up! I was even more impressed when I found out they were affordable! That never happened, especially now.
One of my best finds is about to be my "go to" holiday hostess/unexpected drop-in gifts of this super luxuriously and soft blanket. The picture look meh, but it is really soft and I was glad to see it washed/dried and still looks brand new. It will make a thoughtful and useful gift rather than another knick knack that no one actually wants. It's a great Amazon find right now and I'm buying as gifts especially - at this price.
I will be sharing some of the other cool stuff here in later posts and of course in videos. You do follow me on Youtube, right? If not, run over there now--I'm uploading all kinds of recipes, travel, nature and relaxing videos. Watch them here.
Also run, don't walk over and grab that blanket now before all the pretty ones sell out.

Roadtrips later in the year mean finding fun at home this summer.
July has been about fresh fruit, eating healthier, and catching up with old friends. (Okay, primarily online, but still.)
I tried blackberry smoothies, baked way too much and also did a bit of gardening. I'm still looking for a good summer read, as I power through my TBR pile of books and is it me, or is there NOTHING on TV right now??
It hasn't been a bad month, just rather uneventful.
Catch up with you soon~
As an after Christmas gift to myself I took advantage of Pacificas end of the year sale and stocked up on some favs plus some new skincare items.
I was going to wait till I tried all the new goodies for at least a month and then report back, but the way life is going that really means I would never get this post out.
I just restocked the hair masks, underarm wipes and the Dreamy Youth day/night. They are all tried and true products I use all the time.
If you are looking for a really good, ethical vegan brand for your skincare and beauty needs I can't recommend Pacifica enough.
Catch you later~
I hope you have some wonderful plans for today. We are in for a super hot day with temps 104'F / 40C #YIKES! I used to like warm days...they were perfect for laying by the pool or on the beach - a thrilling science fiction novel in one hand and ice cold beer in the other. #GoodTimes
But sun worshipping isn't "my thing" anymore. The older I get, the more I care about my skin and more importantly the damage the sun has already done. As someone who laid out in an attempt to tan my pale nordic body I woke up one day and thought, "Maybe it's too late?!" Meaning too much damage had been done. But you know I'm not one to just roll over and accept 'fate' - So now I'm on a mission to both protect my skin from any further damage and also turn back the clock.
I'm currently doing some personal research on all things skincare. There have been so many scientific advances in the field of cosmetics and skincare lately that it can be very overwhelming...Where do you even start?
These are some of the best sellers on Amazon and over the course of the next few months I will be trying vegan products out and reviewing for you.
My current (body) sunscreen is Banana Boat Dry Balance Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 50. Gone are the days of greasy, oily sunscreen! This lotion drys to a nice matte finish and leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. I apply this before gardening, hiking or driving. You will need to reapply every two hours, but it is really working so far. (I've been using since about the 3rd of May.)
This post does continue affiliate links, and I may receive a small commission of any sales. I only promote the products I use/feel are good values for you. By clicking the link it doesn't change the price of the product, but it does helps to support the cost of the blog. (So thank you!)
Also thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my posts. I have a few new book reviews that should be out this week and some new vegan recipes, so do stop in again.
It's a lovely sunny day here in New Mexico. After I shared my veggie haul people were asking me how I prepare the produce I bought, so I thought I would share some simple and tasty recipes over the course of the next few days. One SUPER easy and delicious recipe is:
Petite Herbed Potatoes
(Vegan, Simple, classic side dish)
Petite Herbed Potatoes are soooooo easy to make. They also make your kitchen smell wonderful!
These petite potatoes are amazing as is or you can serve with vegan sour cream. #OMG Let me know if you make these or are going to try the recipe. I'd love to hear how you liked them.
Catch you later~

I'm behind schedule today, so let's jump right in. I know what some other vegans are eating during the quarantine and it ranges from junk/comfort food to obsessive immunity builders, with lots of detox/cleanses thrown in for good measure. We went more "middle of the road" at my house. There is some vegan "junk" but also lots of greens and veggies. We really didn't change the way we ate all that much, expect for trying new things when the store was running low on food. Here is this weeks produce/food haul:
I ended up with:
I haven't been posting many food pictures lately because we are eating the same old thing. I do make a desert about every other day though instead of weekly like normal.
Catch you later~
We woke up to a cooler morning today, a cold front had blown through in the middle of the night. It was a pleasant surprise except for all the wind playing havoc with my new seedings. I used to watch the weather (on several apps) when I was actually leaving the house, but nowadays I enjoy the surprise, lol.
And speaking of surprises I was happily surprised with Pacifica having a 50% off sale. #score
This isn't a sponsored post, I just really like this brand and thought I would show you my mini haul.
Why I love this brand:
I have been using/buying Pacifica items from Amazon for a couple of years now and just recently started shopping from their website.
This time I purchased:
The Glow Work Energy Skin Love kit
Mini Body Butter
Coconut Power Shampoo
Pollution fighting facials masks
Coconut facial Wipes
Coconut Pro Hair Masks
As slow as the mail has become in USA over the last few months, I really didn't except to receive my order before May, but it arrived very quickly. I have been using the products and love each and every one!
All of this came to only $31.20 (including shipping in the USA)
If you are looking for a healthy and ethical beauty brand, I would highly recommend Pacifica.
New Dresses, lol!
Hi Travel Fam!
April weather is perfect for shopping, lol Part of the fun of traveling is shopping for the trip. I found these new sundress the other day..next on the list is new sandals.
