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!

Simple yet so satisfying!
Another view of yesterday's raisin bread. So flavorful and tender.

Boiled raisin cake and tea.

3 pm and I'm beat taking care of baby. He's down for a nap right now. Looked forward to this all day. Easy to make boiled raisin cake and a hot cup of tea. I used half sultanas and half cranberries. You can find the recipe at all recipes.com.

Wacky Cake.

If you google "wacky cake" you will find a depression era recipe for chocolate cake that uses no eggs, but instead vinegar and baking soda to make the cake rise. A lot of vegans swear by this recipe. It makes a delicious and tender cake. The frosting recipe is just margarine, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, vanilla and soymilk whipped together.
