Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
How are things?
I'm busy doing the pre-packing and gathering up for the upcoming trips. This isn't exactly my favorite part of the travel experience, but it's probably the most necessary.
My itinerary is not set yet but I have a good outline of where, what and when. I'm still researching (I will share some of my findings soon) and gathering items for the trip. I know I will be at the beach, then off to Austin, Texas for work (yeah) and then on to Florida for a much needed Vacation (with a capital V).
So I'm thinking casual summer stuff --- plus work stuff, plus filming equipment for the Youtube channel, plus where I want to eat, who I want to visit and what I want to experience.
Disney? Naw. Been there, done that with the kids. I would rather go to a nature reserve that supports wildlife.
That's the fun part of the pre-trip part, researching what to see. The not so exciting part is the "gathering stage" of gathering that special vegan shampoo, toothpaste, plane snacks, etc. Plus knowing I'm going from one place to the next without a trip home makes the need to "gather" extra vitamins, toiletries, favorite snacks, etc. necessary. I've ordered extra vitamins and supplements already.
Pictured "my can't be without supplements" you can find them via the link:
Dream Sleep https://amzn.to/41NZbym
Vegan Collagen https://amzn.to/3ISUnza
Ashwagandha https://amzn.to/3J0F4o7 (Amazon informed me I have bought 22 times! This is my favorite brand hands down.) I also picked up another set of iPods.
So who else overpaid for their AirPods and then lost one? #Yikes I'm glad I found these on sale. https://amzn.to/3Jqf1s3
I have more to do, but I'm chipping away on my list day-by-day. It's been my experience the more prepared you are for your trips the more fun you have. I mean we can't prepare for every thing, but we can insure we don't run out of supplements and spend quality vacation time hunting them down. This is especially true when you are in a different country. I want to have fun and relax, not stress over vitamins, lol
Speaking of stress-free...I'm gather a list of Vegan places to try in London and will soon be sharing my findings here. So be sure and check back in so you don't miss any new posts. You can also sign up for the mailing list here:

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~
