For Your Health

Organic and Vegan Raspberry “Nutella” Chia Pudding Pot

 

I’m so stoked to share this recipe with you guys! Mainly because it’s SO dang good, but also cus I never really share recipes or most things non-beauty related on my blog!

 

BUT SERIOUSLY HOW GOOD DOES THIS LOOK?! It tastes even better too! I adapted a recipe by @goodnessisgorgeous that I stumbled upon on FeedFeed! Wait…you don’t know about FeedFeed?! Your life will be changed. It’s basically a crowdsourced digital cooking publication and community for all things FOOD. There’s curated content shared by home cooks, chefs, and bloggers into easy categories that reflect trends from kitchens around the world. Like I said, life changer! I love it!

For Your Health: Dangers of EMF’s + Defender Shield Giveaway!

So, as you all know, I use electronics quite a bit. iPhone, laptop…I mean, it’s basically in my job description. Of course there are benefits to this – fun, useful apps, emails, iCal…the occasional black holes I like to call Instagram and Facebook – and oh, don’t forget Pinterest! But, with all of the new gadgets thrown at us nowadays, there’s (not surprisingly so) some serious complications that come with them.

Top Green Household Products

Who wants a clean home!? (Raises both hands) Who wants a clean home with GREEN products!? (Raises arms and legs) Ladies and gents, I am the QUEEN of clean. Seriously, ask anyone who knows me super well…aka my husband. It isn’t just neat-and-tidy-Sammie, it’s neat-tidy-and-SPICK-AND-SPAN-Sammie. But really, a clean home is just the best, in my honest opinion. What’s better than tidiness and a clean surface?! (Okay..I’ll calm down.)

Pinner Test: Food Intolerance Testing + Results

Back in February I decided I needed to take some sort of a test to see which foods I was intolerant to. It had been almost 6 years since I had last been tested and the body changes quite a bit in just a year alone…so, it was time. I did a bit of research and finally landed on Pinner Test, one of the most accurate at-home Food Intolerance Testing Kits. I mean, if I don’t have to leave home to go to some creepy building to get blood tests, AND it’s still accurate, count me in! (Jk about the creepy building..maybe haha.) On February 6th, I received my Pinner Test and went straight to testing this bad boy out. I’m sure all of you are keen to know about how this whole ordeal went…right? Well, before we get into that, let’s chat about what Pinner Test is and how it works.

I am so excited to be debuting this new series that I will be featuring on my blog every so often called “Inspiring Interviews“.

Whether it be makeup, skincare, body care, haircare, writing, photography, music, art, fashion, health, fitness, faith and more…I want to share with everyone the amazing people I get to connect with on a daily basis! I have met some wonderful humans through social media, and sometimes I get lucky enough to meet them in real life!

Live Inspired: Hand-Crafted Organic Body Care

Live Inspired Organics; hand-crafted, body care created out of a passion cultivated in the belief that behind every superior product, there is a powerful story – now I can get behind that!

A story of all-natural, no harm and organic beauty as told by each beautiful ingredient.

So, what’s the story behind Live Inspired? Well, it’s pretty simple really – aren’t those the best kind of stories anyhow? ;) –  nourishing, healing and renewing products are a result of the use of superior all-natural, pure and organic ingredients. These incredible ingredients, combined with all of the love and gratitude that’s poured into the products made make this company really stand out. Gina, their founder, is one of the sweetest souls! It’s been such a pleasure connecting with her over the past couple of months.
