Beautiful, Handmade Sheyna Jewelry Review


Hi everyone!

I was recently sent two pairs of high quality earrings from a jewelry company called Sheyna which have recently been featured on NBC's TODAY and Oprah.

This company is different because all exsisting pieces have been handmade so no matter what your purchase is, you will end up with a unique piece!

For those creative types, you can also create your own jewelry, if you like!

Sheyna really does have something to fit everyones budget and taste! Every piece is so beautiful, I had a really hard time choosing which pieces I wanted!

Carob Brownie Bites Recipe


Hi everyone!

Just want to share my latest kitchen creation thanks to the recipe book, Easy To Be Raw - Desserts by Megan Elizabeth.

Carob Brownie Bites

Hungry, anyone? (;
View my recipe video here.


These ¨brownies¨ are amazing! Even our completely non-raw, non-vegan friend from the states LOVED them! This is a great recipe to share with those you love who aren´t raw vegan.
You can see him eating them in this video.
(Starts at 5min mark).


This recipe is a dessert but since it´s made with 100% raw fruit & nuts, you can eat it anytime you like! Brownie for breakfast, anyone?


It´s also so simple to make! Only four ingredients, throw everything into the food processor and in less than 15min, you´re done and ready to eat your brownie!
:D


INGREDIENTS
- 2 tsp Raw Carob Powder
- 3/4 cup Raisins
- 10-12 Dates, pitted
- 1/4 cup Favorite Raw Nuts

**Place a little extra carob and nuts to side for topping**

RECIPE
Pay close attention because this recipe is complicated!

Sunless Tanner I Use For Special Occasions

Hi everyone!
Just want you all to know about a new sunless tanner that I have been using for special occasions.

Click here to view my review video.
You all know that am outside, in the sun daily because the fresh air and sun are amazing for so many things in your body and it's also how I get my Vitamin D. I also prefer the look of a natural tan from the sun but when certain, special occasions come about, I will reach for a little something extra to make my skin glow even more!
We recently had our 2nd year salon anniversary party and I had planned to wear a baby pink dress to the party. Two weeks prior to the party, we had clouds and rain everyday - this NEVER happens in Spain. Being that I'm blonde, have light eyes and skin, I wanted a little something extra to make my skin stand out against the baby pink dress. I reached for the SunGoddess tanner to give me that color and shimmer I wanted and couldn't have been more pleased!

My favorite thing about this sunless tanner is that they don't support animal cruelty.
There is no animal testing or bi-products!
:D

 You can see the glow my skin has from the shimmer
