I Never Joke Orchid is...just look at it!

Quick dinner!

Gardein beefless burgers are my absolute favorite. They are meaty and juicy. Melted Daiya on top is a glorious thing.

This was my Mother's Day vegan food haul! Gardein 4eva!

Kiss My Sass Cosmetics

A few more samples from Kiss My Sass cosmetics. Next time I'll get full size shadows because these samples were $2 each. In comparison with Shiro, you get less sample product for more money which was kind of a bummer. I really love the colors though.

Sahara, Forbidden Desires, Summer's End.

Forbidden Desires, Summers End, Sahara.

Gardein chicken strips...

...are bomb with tater tots, waffle fries, BBQ sauce and ketchup! Vegan junk food is the best.

Brija Cosmetics mini jars.

Back with a vegan, cruelty free cosmetics review. Brija is one of my favorite cosmetics companies. This time I got mini jars of eyeshadow because of the price (around $2.75 each) and because the amount of product is more than enough. 

This is my order. 4 tiny jars of pretty colors!

Here's a nice pic in the sunshine.

Top to bottom: Am I Crying or Laughing?, Kit, Namaste and Comet.

All swatched on top of Milani eye primer.

Panera Bread

Went to Panera yesterday and ordered the one vegan friendly sandwich in the menu: Mediterranean Veggie, no feta, on a baguette. It's got delicious cilantro hummus and veggies. The bread is good!

Latest pic of Hank Bowie. 11 weeks!

Finally cooked!

More soup! I think soup is the best because it has more ingredients so I get a variety of nutrients. I made a vegetable soup with Tofurky Italian sausage.

It was very good!

Here's a pic of a dinner I had a few nights ago. Gardein fish and crab cakes with fries.

More makeup from Silk Naturals!

Sorry guys not many food posts these days. Food truck burritos have been my main meals as well as pb and j. But soon I plan to cook more on the weekends. 

I have more vegan cosmetics to show you. I hope you don't mind if I post about non food subjects. I like to have an online record of my purchases. Brija haul coming soon!

Silk Naturals. I love their variety of shades and the price is right. They are having a spring sale now which is why I got these. I've been wanting Caldera and Doubloons for some time.

Some different shots to try and show the brilliant duochrome. Top to bottom: Caldera (coppery orange red prism) Ultra (warm bronzy gold) Model (tan with pink duochrome) Doubloons (light golden copper) and Adorn (light tan with blue violet duochrome).

I love the 4th one down, Doubloons! It's a light golden copper with copper, gold and red duochrome. These are all swatched over Elf Glitter Glue.

My latest Aromaleigh haul came about because there is currently a clearance section that has beautiful shadows going for around $3.83 for full size. I had to jump on that. 
Here it is. Full sized in Pitys, Chupacabra, Hespirades and Heliades. Two free samples as well in Daphnis and Striga.

The All Natural Face vegan cosmetics

Love this indie company that makes as their name suggests, all natural vegan cosmetics. They have a variety of face powder, blush, eyeshadows, lip products, mascara etc. You can find them on Etsy. I have tried one of their bronzers before called Warmth which is very pretty. Today I received an eyeshadow called Cherry Bomb that I've been wanting for my collection. 

I got the eyeshadow plus two samples- an eyeshadow called Mystique and a gel medium for using eyeshadow powder as eyeliner.

Cherry Bomb is a gorgeous deep red with bluish duochrome. Mystique looks grey in the jar but is a gorgeous silvery grey with light violet duochrome. So pretty!

Tuscan minestrone soup.

Recipe from The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen. I left out the pasta and used potatoes instead.
Simple yet so satisfying!
Another view of yesterday's raisin bread. So flavorful and tender.
