I don't have a whole lot to share right now unfortunately. I will show you the little bit that I do have. It's partially because it is Passover and I'm eating really boring food and partially because I don't really have any groceries to make anything interesting. I'm going to go shopping this weekend so I'll have a haul and next week I'll be cooking some more interesting things.
Anyway, here's what I have for this week:
This was pre-Passover avocado toast. I think I've mentioned in the past that I'm not religious at all but I do observe holidays out of respect and to be somewhat traditional.
I've been eating lots of salads this week. This one was spring mix, cranberries, almonds and a vinaigrette. It was simple and delicious.
I told you a few weeks ago that I splurged on a gift to myself and I'd let you know what it was. I just received it about a week ago and I'm in love with it. I ordered a Labradorite silver ring from Anemone Unique on Etsy. I've been looking for a gemstone ring for years and I guess I'm very particular and I am also the kind of person that needs to be sure about something before I buy it. I'm really glad I waited because I really love this ring. It honestly wasn't even that expensive at all but buying jewelry feels like a splurge. Maybe that's weird, I don't know.
I heard about this shop in a High Carb Hannah video and decided to check her out. She is vegan and located in Israel. Her jewelry is absolutely stunning. I have my eye on several more pieces and maybe I'll build up a collection over time. I barely have any jewelry at all, especially now that I found out that I'm allergic to gold. I will definitely be purchasing from her again! Keep in mind that the pieces may differ from the picture because each gemstone is unique but equally beautiful. And nope, I'm not sponsored or anything, I just really think she is talented and love supporting vegans and their small businesses.
The weather was so gorgeous yesterday so I took a walk as a break during work. When the weather is nice out I like to do this to get out and move around a bit since I'm in front of a computer all day. We also keep the studio pretty dark because it is easier to edit the photos that way. It's nice to get out into the sunshine when I can. On my walk I came across this garden of adorable succulents! There were so many of them and I decided to stop and snap a picture. It was definitely a good find, I'm glad that I noticed them!
Have you guys ever heard of Activated Charcoal Toothpaste? I've been hearing about it a lot lately and have been looking for some better toothpaste. I really want something that will whiten my teeth without the chemicals because I have sensitive teeth and the chemicals make it so much worse. I decided to give it a try and I picked up My Magic Mud Charcoal Toothpaste in the Wintergreen flavor. It's definitely pricey but so far I like it! It's really weird to look in the mirror and your mouth is black and it doesn't foam but otherwise I really like it! No sensitivity and my teeth feel really clean after I use it. The only thing I'd warn you about is that it does make a mess and it tends to get black stuff everywhere but a quick wipe up will take care of it no problem. I've only used it twice so I can't speak to the whitening aspect of it but I'll let you know.
I also really like the box. They make it very clear that they are vegan and cruelty free so I really liked that.
I don't eat Lenny & Larry cookies ever but they had these three flavors that I can never find and have wanted to try so I decided to pick them up for after Passover. I'll let you know what I think about them when I try them.
So that's everything for today! I hope that you are all doing well and enjoying your weekend. I hope that it is warming up by you too. It's going to be 83 tomorrow. It's crazy how much the temperatures are fluctuating. See you Tuesday.
