Vegan Grocery Tips On A Budget




Hey Friends! I decided to film this video for you all because I have been seeing a lot of people talk about being vegan, vegan plant base and vegetarian and they all like to say it's cheap and easy and you don't have to have a lot of money to become it... That is true! But then they go and shop at Whole foods, trader joes and stores like that....that's not cheap in a lot of people's eyes. That's why I filmed this video to share with you the basics of what you need and how it can really be affordable even for someone on a collage budget aka no more Top Raman and water. I hope this helps and if you have any questions I am happy to answer them for you.

I Moved


I have been gone for so long on here it's completely crazy and unbelievable to me.  Mainly because I planned so hard to have a smooth move but clearly it didn't work out as planned.

Black Radiance: Vivid Imagination - Bright Eyes Kit

Black Radiance Vivid Imagination 1
Hey, fellow Shy Children!
I have been watching YouTube beauty videos for years now... since 07 or 08 and i have seen a lot of girls of color talk about a company called Black Radiance. They would always say how amazing it is because of the variety of brown shades they have to fit our skin tones or complement it. I though it was fascinating because at the time i was a little darker than what i am now, due to the fact i was in the sun more. So finding a shade that would match me was always difficult. but something was also difficult at the same time, Black Radiance from there words was only at Walmart and back then i didn't live close to a Walmart... So testing out this company would have to wait.

Kid Cudi

Kid CUDI 5
Shirt: Hot Topic (similar here) | Jeans: Forever21 | Sandals: Adidas | Glasses: Tantino Wayfarer  
| Phone Case: Target (similar here)
I have been religiously living in this Kid Cudi concert tee all weekend! I came to a conclusion in my head that there is know reason to be messing up any more shirts, when all i am doing is packing, planning and running around.

Gotta Love Radii

Gotta Love Radii 2
In my last Outfit post called Radii Simply Grey, I featured a pair of Radii grey sneakers and can I say Thank You for all of the love around social media... You all had great things to say and I appreciate that. But there was also a lot of curiosity too and that made me realize I needed to do a separate post all out the shoes. So that leads us to were we are now.

5 Lush Products I Would Love To Try

5 Lush Products I Would Love To Try
It's crazy how much luxuries we have, in our everyday lives that we just take for granted. If you have been following my blog story, you know I grew up in the Bay Area... San Francisco to be exact and I lived there my whole life until 2014 when I made the decision to move out to Stockton,CA. With that big of a change led me to realize, I was living like a luxury princess back in the Bay Area... Materialistically speaking. I had the option to go to any store I wanted to go to and Lush Cosmetics was definitely an option, I tell ya! With two Lush stores in the city already and a third one looks to be coming to Fisherman's Whalf... That's having it made in my eyes. Because now I don't have the option to just go. The only option I have now is to order online and when I make that order, these are my top 5 Lush products I would love to try:

Cortney's Fitness Letter #10

Untitled
Hello fellow Shy Children!

Another month has past and a fitness letter from me is here. I stated in my last fitness letter that I subscribed to some fitness and health magazines and they haven't arrived yet. Well now they are here and coming! I'm really excited to have a hands on visual motivation for some of the things they talk about and share. But remember I am Vegan and I do have to say, a lot of the food ideas and planning has a lot to do with the meat for protein aspect... I'm not about that life.
