A month ago, I was lucky enough to be chosen as the winner of the giveaway that Adventure Kitty and Sunny (@veganbeautyreview) were having! The giveaway was for any Adventure Kitty item of you choice. All you had to do was post a photo of your kitties being adventurous. Currently, I have 3,703 photos on my phone and probably 3,000 of them (at minimum) are of my cats. I had plenty of material to post lol. I was so grateful they chose me I almost couldn't believe it!
I just received my shirt this Saturday in the mail and I am excited! There was some miscommunication I believe with shipping the item out which is why I just got it. But I wasn't mad, I understand things happen. I'm just super happy I received it. Here's what I got:
I wanted all the things, but this dapper kitty dolman shirt was entirely too cute. Not only did I love the cut of the shirt, but the kitty on the front looks like my Leopold.
I tried really hard to get him to look at me while my husband was taking the picture of me in my shirt, but he wasn't having that lol. So, I wanted to add another one to show you the resemblance. Twinsies right?!
I got a size small in this shirt and it fits perfect. It's a loose and flowy at the top but then it's more fitted towards the bottom to still give it that feminine look. The material is ridiculously soft and has a great deal of stretch to it. It reminds me of jersey knit sheets. The material is poly-viscose.
The design speaks for itself- it's adorable. A cat with a mustache wearing a suit jacket, vest, and a tie. What's not to love?
I'm grateful I was lucky enough to win this, because I could never afford it otherwise. This shirt is $68. Most of their products are expensive, but the quality is clearly there. If you can afford it, grab a piece or two from their shop. You'll be happy you did.
My search for a new foundation led me to Jane Iredale. I've heard the name before, but never knew too much about the brand. They're a cruelty free brand that's Leaping Bunny and PETA certified. They offer many options that are vegan and gluten free. When you're browsing their website, every option they have, they let you know whether or not the product is vegan, and I just love that. Takes the guess work out of shopping! I prefer powder foundation, and I was impressed by some of the details of this product. This mineral foundation is water resistant for up to 40 minutes, and also includes a sunscreen (titanium dioxide and zinc dioxide), calms skin, and contains pomegranate extract to aid in minimizing UV damage and protecting your skin. It's also oil free and free from any nasty chemicals.
Now that I knew the foundation seemed solid, it was time for the difficult part.. finding my shade! Mind you, this company is not cheap. This is high end makeup. The powder foundation refills are $42, and I was not buying it and just taking my best guess to end up having the wrong shade.. again. They have tons of shades to suite mostly ever skin color. They offer a shade finder quiz and you answer 5 questions and at the end they give your shade and a few products they recommend based off your answers.
Once I got my shade, I wanted to read some reviews on the foundation, and see what people had to say about it. They also had a questions and answer spot, which is always useful to read as well. While reading the Q&A section, I found out they offer samples! I got on the phone right away and called! The girl was really nice and helpful in answering my questions. The shade they recommend from the shade finder quiz was the color she recommended as well, but she also offered to send me a shade lighter and darker too. And, I asked for a finishing powder option, and she sent me the pressed and loose version of those. All for free! Yay!
The shade finder and the Jane Iredale personal shopper recommended Satin, which is light-medium with neutral undertones. She also sent me Radiant, which is light with neutral undertones, and Suntan, which is medium with neutral undertones. Then the finishing powder is just one shade, in pressed and loose. I was impressed by the size of the samples, especially since they were free. I would say they offer at least 3 weeks worth of product (for me) per sample, longer than that for the finishing powder.
When I tried the colors, I made sure I had plenty of natural sunlight to find the right shade. Suntan for sure is a tad too dark, but would probably be great when I get a little tan, or as a bronzer! Radiant is slightly light but not too light. I think Satin is pretty accurate.
The picture above is in natural light, after wearing my makeup since 730 this morning. It's now 530 at night. And, I've been laying on my face (I'm laying in my bed in this photo), and it's completely untouched.
Here's my thoughts:
-My first initial thought when trying them was how impressed I was by the coverage. I've had mineral powders that were super light and almost not even there, but this one offered awesome coverage. I even used my concealer brush to pat an extra layer on where I need it and it does a great job concealing.
-The powder is smooth and silky. It offers buildable coverage.
-I used my Eco Tools Mineral Powder brush, which I think because it's bigger than the container made a bit of a mess but otherwise I don't think the powder is they messy.
-The powder also provides a really great base for applying bronzer and blush. With other foundations I've had in the past I felt like I needed to apply more bronzer and blush because the colors were so noticeable. With this foundation, I've noticed that my bronzer and blush go on super smooth and the colors really pop.
-I feel like this foundation lasts all day, and I find minimal shine coming through.
-I do notice some transfer from my face to my phone for example, but it's nothing that wiping off my phone won't fix.
-My face doesn't feel heavy wearing this. Despite the coverage the final results feel light on my skin.
-I haven't had any adverse reactions to this product. My face hasn't broken out, which is surprising. No redness or rash. My skin is sensitive, and typically I have an adjustment period with new products, but with this I've been fine.
-The price is a little hefty, as I mentioned above at $42. Plus, your fist initial purchase you have to buy the compact which is $18. But, price to me is irrelevant if it's a product that I like and can feel confident wearing.
-I really only have two complaints. First, I don't particularly find this foundation to be cakey, but it always cakes up on my chin. I have no clue why, perhaps it's the oils in my skin, but it's only my skin. Not my nose or forehead, my chin.
-Second complaint: My whole life I've been super oily and acne prone. But as of lately, my face is getting really dry in spots. And on those dry spots, this foundation tends to cling. I use a moisturizer and then an oil control primer before application. I'm thinking of trying a new moisturizer to see if that helps my dry patches thus helping the foundation to apply properly. I also sent for some liquid foundation samples, thinking they might be an option to look into, even though I haven't used liquid foundation since I was probably 12. Because I liked the powder so much, I'm willing to give their liquid a try.
Overall, I'm pretty impressed. At the end of the day, no makeup is perfect. But this stuff is pretty close, and it's helping me to feel more confident in myself, which is an daily struggle for me, and lately it's been even harder. I'm not buying the foundation yet, but, I am considering it pretty highly.
Last week I posted about my Josie Maran foundation that I loved, but the color was off, and it oxidized on my face. I tried everything I could to make it work and sadly, I had to return it. That left me with one problem, I had no foundation to match my skin. But my 30 days were about to be up for my return so I had to return it when I did. I quickly ran to Sephora to grab a foundation.
Truth be told, I don't really care for Sephora. Their house brand isn't cruelty free, which makes me want to not spend any of my money there. But, they have that fancy tool that can tell you which foundations match your face. That's my biggest issue with foundation shopping is that my face is the weirdest color and nothing ever matches. So I totally needed some help, and I needed foundation fast. I know what brands I can and can't use (the girl didn't, of course), so I just needed a color match and I was good. Time was of the essence!
I had wanted to try Kat Von D, but according to the shade matcher, she had no powder foundation that matched me. However, CoverFX did. They're a well known cruelty free and vegan company, and I haven't tried their makeup in years. I remember last time I tried it, the girl A) gave me the wrong shade and B) I didn't like it much. So I returned it and never looked back. But at this point I didn't care, I just wanted something to match until I found the foundation I really wanted and I could return it.
A word of the wise, even though Sephora has that fancy shade matcher tool, and it helps guide you to where your shade is, it's not always right. It is a good place to start though if you have no idea what shades to look at, or if you're like me, you have to the most difficult skin to match. The tool chose G40 which the girl said was too dark even before using it on me. So she also brought G30 and G20. I'll be honest, I was surprised it wasn't an N color. I don't have golden undertones, I have neutral undertones. I tried to verify that with her and she just kind of looked at me a little weird. She put G30 on one side and G20 on the other, and the lights there suck, so I couldn't even tell the difference. I asked her, and she was essentially useless. Who helped? My husband, of all people. He told me which cheek looked better. I try to go a shade lighter because my face is naturally darker than my neck. Between that and my husband's help, I got G20, which is for fair to light skin with golden undertones. I have light to medium skin with neutral undertones. But, I gave it the benefit of the doubt considering I didn't actually apply it yet.
When I applied it, the shade matched better than I thought, but I don't think I'm sold. Don't get me wrong, it's 100% better than the Josie Maran shade, but I'm not convinced. I need to see N20 or N30 on me, so I can compare.
Enough about Sephora and colors, let's talk about the foundation itself:
-There's not a lot of product fall out from my brush so it's not super messy and there's less waste, which I appreciate.
-They do offer a ton of shades with golden, neutral, and pink undertones. So you're bound to find one that matches you.
-The coverage is nice, but it's not full coverage. It covers my redness well, but my acne discoloration doesn't get covered. If I use concealer it does help. The coverage is build able and I think it builds nicely without being cakey.
-If you have any dry skin, be mindful as this does cling to those patches.
-It's has oil absorbing microspheres to help with excess oil. I can say that my cheeks look great, but t-zone gets oily even still. I recommend blotting and reapplying if you can. I use a finishing powder and that helps to keep it fresh for most of my work day.
-It does leave a matte finish, and I use Modern Mineral's Tea Rose Glow which adds just a bit of shimmer to make my face soft. It's a good mix.
-This foundation is free of: gluten, parabens, fragrance, talc, and mineral oil. There isn't a ton of ingredients, but it's still not a super green makeup product.
-The price is $36, which isn't terrible. I've seen higher and lower prices, but I think that's a little higher than average.
-If you do choose to use this foundation and go to Sephora to find your shade, try it in the store, and if you like it, order it on the Cover FX website. Sephora isn't my favorite company and had I not needed foundation that day, I would've order it online. Like I said, I'm going to try this to see if it's my shade and if I like it, and if I do, I'm going to order it on the Cover FX website and return it back to Sephora when I get mine in the mail. Sephora has a 30 day return policy. Please spend your money at stores and companies that have a cruelty free value system. Always choose compassion!
Overall, I enjoyed this foundation more than when I tried last time. It worked when I needed it to. I have some Jane Iredale foundations that came in that I'm super excited to try. My search for the perfection foundation continues..
Here's another color from the Mother's Day winnings! This is called From Rio XO, part of their Samba collection. This is a fiery color. It makes me think of sunset in Rio, dancing, with a drink in my hand, and the ocean breeze on my face. It's saucy! And it evokes a kind of sexy vibe! It's super feminine but in a fierce way.
It's a bright bold pink. There's no missing this or blending in. It stands out on your fingers but in a good way! It's not a color I would have ever bought, but I'm glad I got it.
I used a base coat, 2 coats of color, and a top coat. My only complaint is that this polish has a matte finish. I prefer thay glossy shiny wet kind of look. The top coat helps to give it that shine.
This polish is $10.50 and is available on their website!
Me and my mom were part of the lucky winners of Ella+Mila Mother's Day Giveaway! We were both so excited. The giveaway winnings were 5 Ella+Mila polishes. We didn't get to pick our colors, which was kind of nice because we got colors neither of us ever would've picked. Here's the colors we received:
From left to right is: In Line for Wine (a deep burgundy color, as the name explains), From Rio XO (a vibrant bright bold hot pink), Mauve Over (a pale purple), Don't Be Blue (a mint green/blue), Pucker Up (a light pink), and Sugar Fairy (neutral purple-ish).
Of course I was excited to win these for my mom and me, but without her being awesome and giving me a reason to write about her, we never could've won. So yay mom for being awesome! 💜
The first color I used was Sugar Fairy.
In the bottle, I thought the color was beautiful. But I wasn't too big a fan of it on my nails. It's just a little too light for my skin tone. I think this color would benefit someone with very light skin or dark skin.
I think that it's a great color for someone who wants a neutral nail, or someone who isn't really allowed to wear colors for work. I think overall that the color is really pretty, even if I didn't love it on my nails!
I have to say that the staying power of Ella+Mila polishes is pretty awesome. They wear almost like a gel. And despite having a base coat, 2 coats of color, and a top coat; this polish dried quicker than I thought it would have.
This polish is available on their website for $10.50! I'll be posting blog posts on all of these colors, either with my mom wearing them or myself, so keep your eyes peeled!
If you guys only go to HomeGoods for their awesome candles, fancy soaps, and unique home decor- you're doing yourself a disservice. HomeGoods is also goldmine for unique snacks. They have SO many vegan snacks that I've never even heard of, and every time I go I could literally spend an hour just checking out their snacks! Prepare to have a snack attack!
When I saw the words "avocado" and "popcorn" on one bag, I was sold. When I saw it was vegan too, I didn't hesitate grabbing a bag off the shelf. I've confessed my love for avocados on several occasions. They're one of my most favorite foods ever. I never would've thought of avocado oil and popcorn, but it sure does work deliciously well!
This whole grain, organic, gluten free snack has the oil of more than 1 and 1/4 avocados in it! The avocado oil adds a delicious buttery flavor to the popcorn, but with all the good fats and without all the bad stuff. The oils are cold pressed so they're as natural as they are nutritious. Coconut oil is an additional ingredient that adds some more healthy fats to this snack. Lastly, it's sprinkled with some Himalayan salt, but it's not over salted at all. It's got the perfect balance of eveeything!
I was munching on this while watching Hocus Pocus and had to stop myself from eating the whole bag! Four simple ingredients and that's it. Healthy and nutritious! I finished my entire bag in 3 days! I absolutely recommend you stop by your local HomeGoods and grab a bag (or five, I'm not judging!), you'll be happy that you did!
I went back and bought 4 more bags lol. It's probably my most favorite popcorn ever. And if you really wanna un-health it up, melt a little EarthBalance buttery spread and drizzle it on there. Just like movie theater popcorn, but better! 👍🏼
My first thought when I saw this bag was: Cool Ranch Doritos. One of my favorite snack when I was younger was Doritos. I could eat Doritos by the (family size) bag. Of course I had to give these a shot. If you've ever had Beanitos chips, the texture is very similar to those. However, instead of just having beans, these are beans and rice. I personally prefer the texture of bean chips to regular corn chips because they still have a good crunch but they're more fulfilling. The ranch flavor isn't too overpowering. They remind you of a more mild but better version of Cool Ranch Doritos and I'm a fan! They're pretty delicious and I plan on going back to see if I can grab another bag! This bag was $2.79 which is a price that makes me HomeGoods happy!
I prefer salty snacks over sweet, but these looked pretty tasty! These Gluten Free Bites are jam packed with lots of good stuff and no bad stuff. Gluten free snacks can be delicious or taste like cardboard. Fortunately, these weren't cardboard flavored. If you're not a fan of dates, you might want to skip these. The dates are prevalent in these, even with all the other ingredients. The coconut is toasted so it adds a nice smoked flavor and great texture to these. There's little chocolate chunks and little rice crispies in there as well, which adds even more great texture. They're soft and moist. I love that 2 bites has 4 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber. With only 100 calories per 2 bite serving, these are a great addition to your lunch or a great dessert after dinner!
I had hopes to really enjoy these. I read the name I Heart Keenwah and in my mind I'm like, I heart quinoa too, so what could go wrong?! Turns out, everything. Both myself and my mom tried them and spit them out. The sea salt was overpowering, and apparently, I discovered that me and my mom both find truffle oil absolutely disgusting. Ew! I mean like, seriously ew! My mom described them as "salted cardboard." From what I read, Truffle oil is an earthy flavor similar to mushrooms and garbage (my words). It seems like it's a love or hate relationship, with most reviews that I read leaning to the negative side. If you are a fan of truffle oil, give them a shot. Fortunately they were only $2.39, so I wasn't too disappointed throwing them out. I would be happy to try other flavors, because the texture had a satisfying crunch. But this flavor was a no go.
Unfortunately, you can't win them all, but 3 out of 4 isn't bad! And it's not like you have to go to some fancy store to find these delicious vegan snacks; HomeGoods is the place to go! While you're there, seriously don't forget to check out their soaps and candles though for real. Some of my most favorite soy candles I've ever used have been from there. And I'm forever finding new soaps to try for a decent price. I buy Deep Steep hand soaps all the time, and I now have 3 spares stashed away under my kitchen sink! I buy one every time I go! These cashiers must think I'm nuts! I buy all these snacks then hand soap and on occasion I throw a few other items in there. They must think I love to snack and wash my hands, and you know what? They'd be spot on! They're two of my most favorite activities! 😹
Happy Shopping and Happy Snacking!
Every makeup remover, wipe, and pad has burned my eyes literally ever since I've been using them. Even ones made for sensitive eyes. Yes To Carrots makes the Cucumber ones specifically for sensitive eyes. Well, they burned too. I even used to use baby oil when I was in high school, and even that irritated my eyes. So to say I'm a skeptic when it comes to eye makeup remover is an understatement.
I received S.W. Basics cream in my Petit Voir box a few months ago and I loved it. All natural real simple ingredients. They only use five ingredients or less. That's pretty impressive. I use the cream on my eczema and it doesn't burn, no matter how irritated it is. So when I saw they offered an eye makeup remover I was thought about how gentle it is on my eczema.. and I decided to give it a shot.
It came in this cute little glass bottle. I don't know what it is, but anytime I get a beauty product in and it's in a glass jar or bottle, instantly it feels fancier.
From the ingredients above, you can read there is only 3 of them: organic sweet almond oil, organic olive oil, and organic jojoba oil. That's it. But if baby oil burned, this could too!
Luckily, this didn't burn! In fact, it's awesome! The smell is so amazing, first and foremost. It's slightly sweet and natural. Second, it's so light! It doesn't feel heavy on my eyes or overly greasy. It's an oil, but it's not heavy. Third, it truly didn't burn, not at all. Out of habit, when I take my eye makeup off, and I open my eyes, I'm nervous and ready for the burn. But I could open my eyes no problems with no issues at all. And, I get contact dermatitis on my eyelids from something I'm allergic to but can't seem to pinpoint (I'm just a barrel of problems aren't I?! Lol. No joke when I said I have sensitive skin!), and it didn't even irritate that. Fourth, this can bonus as a lightweight moisturizer if you choose not to wash it off. Just massage it into your skin! It doesn't even have to be just around your eyes, you can use it on your face too!
I typically only wear mascara most days unless I'm feeling fancy and I do a whole eye, so I used it on both my regular mascara day (yesterday) and today on a full fancy eye with mascara eyeliner and eyeshadow. The results you see below are just mascara, but I can attest it worked really well on my fancy eyes too. I just took a cotton pad, shook the bottle a little, and only used a little bit, and added a little more if I needed as I went.
Here's a before and after:
They offer 2 sizes- a 2 oz for $14 or a 1 oz for $10. Considering I've never used it before and I was ever the skeptic, I decided to get the 1 oz. I ordered it Monday morning 5/16 and I received it yesterday (Wed)- so shipping was super duper fast. Shipping was also only $2.99 so not terrible.
I'm amazed at how well this stuff works. And still amazed that it doesn't burn while being effective. My eyelids and around my eyes after just two days of use already feel softer so, I'm a believer! You will be too! Buy yourself a bottle right now!
A few weeks ago, I was browsing Sunny's blog (@veganbeautyreview - she's amazing and you should definitely follow her!), and I saw her post about Josie Maran's vegan products. I never even thought to look into Josie Maran products, but thanks to the handy list she provided of their vegan products, I did some browsing.
I was almost out of one of my powder foundations, and I was in the market for a new one. I liked my old foundation, but it was a little too powdery for me. Like I felt like you could always tell I was wearing foundation. I saw that they offered a foundation called Argan Matchmaker Foundation. They offer this in both a liquid and a powder. The liquid starts essentially white but quickly blends to match your skin tone. The powder is in a compact and it's the color marbled with white speckles throughout. It does the same thing as the liquid, but in a powder form instead. The powder doesn't start off white though, the powder has color. Both contain 100% Argan oil to nourish your skin. Also, you won't find any talc, parabens, sulfates, dyes or fragrances in these products. They offer 3 shades for each: fair/light, light/medium, and medium/dark. I chose the powder and, because light/medium is the same shade as one of my other foundations, I felt confident in trying that shade.
My skin is the most difficult shade to match. I use two foundations to match my skin, and even then, sometimes I have to adjust how much of each to match my face. And even then, sometimes I still feel like my skin doesn't match. My face is darker than my neck naturally. So basically no matter what, I never match lol. But, the idea of shade matching foundation seemed pretty awesome.
It comes with a sponge for application. One side is a basic sponge for full coverage, and the other side is flocked for sheer to medium coverage. I prefer the flocked side for my application. I tried using my usual powder foundation brush, but it wasn't working with this foundation. I'm surprised by how much I enjoy applying it with the sponge though. I've been using a brush to apply my powder foundation since 2007! But this sponge is pretty awesome!
As I mentioned before, my other foundation was powdery. This is not at all. It goes on super velvety smooth. The coverage is medium, and it still looks natural. I also don't feel like I need to apply a lot of layers for it to cover. Granted, it's not a miracle powder, which nothing is. If you have skin issues like acne scarring, you will need to apply a concealer first. Despite that, I liked this foundation more than I thought I would honestly.
There is some cons though, unfortunately. First, my T-zone gets oily using this. I might just need my face to adjust to it some, as I've only been using it since Monday. But it says that it's supposed to help excess oil, thanks to the rice starch. Mind you, it still isn't hot here yet, we've actually seen 40s/50s lately, so it's not like I'm dripping sweat. Secondly, this foundation oxidizes on my skin, which makes it darker and slightly orange. When I first apply it I feel like it looks great. But I've been in several different lights, ranging from natural and several different artificial lights, and I can see it definitely looks darker in all of the lights later on in my day. I have my Pacifica oil control primer I plan on trying underneath it to see if that helps. Also, I haven't been using finishing powder because I wanted to see how it was without it, so I plan on trying that as well to see if that helps. I think the fair/light would be entirely too light, so hopefully I can get this to work! I really like this foundation as I said, so I want to make it work for me!
I do absolutely recommend this, despite the few cons. I can't comment on the liquid, but I am considering giving it a shot maybe in the fall when my face will get dryer again. The liquid version of this foundation is $42, and the powder is $34. Shipping was free! Anything over $25 is free and under $25 is $4.95, both via USPS. They have other options for UPS too if you like. They do ship to Canada as well. Shipping was quick too. I ordered it April 30th, it got shipped May 3rd, and I received it May 5th. If you're looking for a new foundation, check these two out!
I've been on a mission this spring to go outside of my box more often. Spring always feels like a time for reinvention. One of the easiest things to be daring with is my nail polish! I've always wanted to try Deco Miami since I've been following them on Instagram, so I made the plunge and ordered a polish to try out. I ordered a color called Champagne Mami, which is a rose gold metallic shimmer.
Not at all a color I typically buy, but something about it jumped out to me. The color is really pretty, even considering it's not my kinda color. What's really funny is that when I asked my husband what he thought of it, expecting his usual "looks good babe" without even looking, he looked and said "that's different for you." And, my manager at work (who's a man) and my coworker also said that it was different than my usual dark colors lol.
The picture don't do justice to the color itself. In the photos it looks more gold, but it is for sure a true rose gold. It's really eye catching. It's very shimmery, and bold. I also think that it's a year round color. Regular gold can be gaudy and overbearing, in my personal opinion. Rose gold is a softer take on gold, but it's still got that glitz and glamor. This color feels fancy!
I used a base coat, two coats of polish, and a top coat. The polish itself dried relatively quickly. I had it on for a week, and by then the tops of my nails were starting to wear, but the polish wasn't really chipping. That's impressive considering I use my hands all day for work, and I wash them 9 million times a day.
Their polishes are $9.50 each and shipping was only $1.99 which is super reasonable. The polish bottles are much tinier than I anticipated, especially considering the price, even though they list the size on their website. I don't really mind that though because really, how often do you finish a bottle of polish before it gets goopy and gross? Smaller bottles I feel go less to waste.
They have a good selection of colors, and the packaging is also super cute! Give them a follow on Instagram and check out their selection of polishes!
I think by now I've confessed my love for the Vegan Police Shop on several occasions, and today, I'm gonna do it again!
Every time they have an Etsy sale, I physically can't help but to buy at least one item. They offer some products that are normal but just on sale, and they offer things that are slightly misprinted and/or have a small defect. But they're always so minor that you're really just getting a slightly off product for a super good deal. Like last time I got their cute "Be Nice. Go Vegan." chicky shirt that just had a small ink stain on it that I barely noticed and it was only $14. I purchased two items this time that I wanted to show you guys and talk about today!
First up, this "I don't eat pals" shirt.
This is one of their sale products. This shirt is SO super soft. It's so comfy too! It's fitted around the top and the sleeves are too, but it's drapey around the waist. I love how long it is. It would look cute with jeans or with some yoga pants! And clearly, as you can tell by my picture, it looks cute with my fox PJ pants too lol. The neckline is perfect too. I don't like them too high because I feel like I'm choking and I don't like them too low because I'm not trying to show off the goods. There is a size chart on there which I recommend before purchasing. For size reference, I got a small. I'm a 32D, and weigh 110 pounds. I'm wearing a tank top under neath this as well, and I still felt it fit comfortably. This is on sale currently for $20 CAD which is about $15.97 USD and worth every penny!
I also got this super cute lunch bag!
I've been eyeing up this lunch bag forever. I absolutely LOVE the design and I love the message. Bonus: the writing is my favorite color! I used it for the first time today and was totally surprised how much I could fit in it! A half sandwich, a baggie of quinoa chips, a pack of freeze dried apples, a drink, a coconut yogurt, a small container or dry cereal, a plastic spoon, a Larabar, and a vegan rice crispy treat! And I still had some room to spare! It's surprisingly sturdy too. It's made of recycled cotton canvas, and it's fair wage and fair labor made. And it got Velcro closure so you can rest assure your food is safe and secure. You can also machine wash it if you need to! Eco friendly and Eco cute!
Here's what separates this company from a lot of others: their customer service. I commented on their picture, not even expecting a response! I just wanted to show some love as I often like to do to my favorite shops, and this was the response I got:
The bag I purchased wasn't even bad looking in my opinion. The print was a little lighter, which is why it was labeled misprinted. And they went ahead and sent me an absolutely perfect lunch bag! I just thought that was so absolutely awesome of them! I'm already a repeat buyer, and I'll continue to repeat buy from them without a doubt. Oh and did I mention the bag was only $6.39?! Such a fantastic deal! I can't stop telling people about it. They have two others listed in their sale section with blue ink so hurry up and buy them!
If you're not already, follow them on Instagram and favorite their shop on Etsy. I promise you won't regret it!
