I've gotten a few things throughout the past couple of months, and I haven't had the chance to even discuss them with you guys! So, this post is going to contain a little of this and a little of that, with some reviews mixed in. Let's get to it!
This super soft long sleeve "Eat Like You Give A Damn' shirt, complete with some stickers and a "Compassion is Invincible" pin, is a bundle of happiness. I'm pretty sure I got a medium, just because I prefer my shirts a little bigger. The colors are light and dark gray striped with white writing. The big bold writing leaves a no fuss message, which I love. It's a good length, not too short and not too long. The neckline is good so I don't feel like I'm choking, and it matches like everything I own! The stickers were free, but I did purchase the pin for my pin boards, and it looks awesome up there. I bought these during a sale they had a while back (in October) when they were having 15% off. The pullover was on sale for $25, and the pin was $11, plus the 15% off. They we're great purchases, as is everything I've ever bought from Herbivore Clothing. They're one of my favorite companies. They've got some new pieces I want, but I gotta be good! I don't know if they have this still in stock; the pin I know they do though. But, check out their website, and make sure you're signed up for their emails, so you can get discount codes!
Another order from Herbivore Clothing, from awhile back, is this lip balm. Lip balm is life. Pancakes are life. Pancake lip balm? It has to be life x2 right? Unfortunately, it is not life x2, or even x1. I thought it smelled like maple syrup which was about the only plus side to it; however, my husband thinks it smells like wet laundry. Two vastly different smells, so I don't know how that works. He won't even talk to me up close if I try to wear it, he hates the smell that bad. Aside from the scent, the lip balm itself just isn't good! It was on sale when I bought it, so at least I didn't waste a ton of money. I think it as like $3, but boy, was this a disappointment. It's really rough, and doesn't glide on your lips. After basically pulling and tugging at your lips to get some on, it still doesn't feel moisturizing in the least bit. I mean really, it's rathe drying. I'm baffled by how, because shea butter is so moisturizing and good for your skin! I've tried warming it up, then using it, and it still doesn't do much. I'm sad, because I so wanted to love it, but it's basically trash bound. This one wasn't a winner.
Okay, so here's the outlier of my post, because it's got nothing to do with being vegan. But, Disney is life. And this quote by Scar is everything. It's how I felt almost every time I step foot outside of my house lol. Even though he kills Musafa in one of the saddest scenes in movie history and I literally cannot watch that part in the LionKing because I cry my eyeballs out, I am obsessed with this sweatshirt. It's a thin pullover, but the design is great. It's got that old school tattoo vibe to it. It was on sale for $15 from Hot Topic when I bought it, and I just had to share. If anyone else is also Disney obsessed, check it out.
Have you ever seen such a cute pin like in your entire life? Alba Paris makes beautiful designs. Some of them really tug on my heart strings, like one of her recent designs that depicts a person holding a crying pig saying "I got you," and that one makes me cry, like ugly cry. Because I can like feel it inside my heart.
But this design is adorable. A happy fox, big smile, a cute scarf, and a butterfly on its nose, still depicting a message "Wear faux, not fur" gets the point across without it being abrasive and in your face. I have this on my pin board as well, near my "Compassion is invincible" pin I mentioned above, and I love them both. This is my first pin from her, but it certainly won't be my last. All of her pin designs are beautiful, but a lot of them sell out almost immediately, probably because of that reason. I did a review on this pin, and received 20% off my next purchase, which is coming up next!
This is what I bought with my 20% off coupon, and it was already on sale too, so bonus there. This unisex pullover is another one of those shirts that states a message clearly, but it's not abrasive. "Vegan because I give a damn," and it's the truth. The cute pig design only adds to the message. Now, this is unisex small, but I swore I ordered a unisex medium. I checked my order, and I didn't, but I know I meant to, so that was my bad. It does fit, but there isn't a whole lot of stretch. I definitely won't be putting this in the dryer. I just like more space, and since it's not very stretch, a medium would be MUCH more suited to my comfort level, but I still love it and I'll still wear it! This was a recent purchase, so I know they still have it in this and other designs too. Check it out!
So that's it, finally catching you guys up on recent purchases, even if they go back until like, August lol. Thank goodness for staycations, since that's the only reason I've been able to catch up on this! I've got a ton of homework to do too, but I miss blogging. I miss sharing cool stuff with you guys! So, I'm trying to make it a priority to do one post a week. I thank you guys for sticking with me, even though I haven't been on here much. I certainly do appreciate it. I've got a lot more to review for you guys, so keep your eyes peeled!
