Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Hello everyone :) Shh. Staying up late signing up for classes!!! I might stay up all night--this is hard! The choices are getting narrower as I get closer to my degree--but I haven't been accepted in a program yet (nor have I tried--I need to get all the pre-reqs first!), so I have to make sure I have both gen-eds and pre-reqs covered from both schools I'll be applying to--so I'm trying to find the most optimal classes--ones that will cover all 4. This is HARD. Plus I don't have the…Continue
Skin is brighter and clearer than ever, except where my shea moisture leave-in conditioner touched my skin when I was using it for a couple of days. I hope I can give it away as it's got great ingredients--kind of a bummer that I'm having such a bad reaction to it. I didn't even know it was possible for my skin to get the kind of acne that my face got after using the lotion. Truly horrible, I think my skin right there may be ruined permanently >.< Hopefully not. It's going away…Continue

Had an amazing time out with my boyfriend day before yesterday night. :) His friends are SO adorable, they remind me of the Lost Boys from Peter Pan :P Even the way they fall asleep...one always falls asleep at the foot of the bed and the other one falls asleep at the front and they lie on top of all the blankets. HEE. :) My boyfriend drank too much and got sick and fell asleep before every one else, so I got interviewed. How many people have you been with before him? 10? 5? More…Continue
I know it sounds so silly, but last night I made a great big smile in the mirror--much more exaggerated than I ever usually do--just to check lol (anyone else do this?), and sure enough I could find wrinkles forming in places I never even knew they were before!! So in a frenzy I slabbed on a moisturizer I never use and decided that from that day forward I'd follow a low to no sodium diet.
Why a low sodium diet is better for your skin: Simple, you stay hydrated much easier because the…Continue
Well I am my third day in on extremely high raw, no cooked carbs at all, very little oils...the only cooked foods I have eaten have been part of an 88 percent dark, organic, fair-trade chocolate bar, and some processed coconut milk by so delicious in some smoothies. Other than that I've been raw all the way baby!!!! And no nuts and seeds of course, since I don't react well to those...fruits and veggies all the way! :)
My skin is looking nicer, the bags under my eyes are looking the…Continue
I don't understand why I was in so much pain last night and so much pain this morning. :( Yesterday I was 100 percent raw excluding 1 tortilla chip, more raw than I've been in weeks. Maybe it was all the sugars in the oranges and the grapes. Maybe my arthritis doesn't like sugars. I felt so refreshed but the pain was incredibly bad. I did lots of dancing yesterday too, maybe 3 hours...I just danced through it because the energy I was feeling was so great, like back when I first started…Continue
Wow, I woke up at 2 in the morning last night, no idea why, maybe because I was stressed deep down because I knew I still needed to both brush my teeth and wash my makeup still on...I went to the bathroom.
A couple days ago, I swear even yesterday, there was this patch of pimples running along the left side of my face behind my hairline...gone. Completely gone. It was like they were never even there. And the skin there looks baby smooth and pore less. WHAT…Continue

Hi guys. Just wanted to make a quick update because I have been feeling so much better :) I have eliminated lots of actually -raw- foods that were bothering me more than cooked ones, and just continued eating what works for me, although I'd still like to continue eating high-raw and vegan as per usual!! :)
Yesterday I even ate popcorn. Popcorn!! It was vegan. And, and I only mention this because I'm surprised by it and don't know what to make of it--quite a high amount…Continue

Woke up this morning and my skin looked positively RADIANT. I love my new skincare routine. Also I did something with my hair that I used to do all the time and I simply forgot about it until recent--oh my hair is shinier smoother sleeker since I've been deep conditioning again! :) So anyway it's back to normal back when I used to deep condition regularly (it's got to be done otherwise I have a crazy, crazy mop :) there's only one conditioner that works and unfortunately I think it's…Continue
Skip to what you like!!! I did NOT intend to make this so LONG!! I have a problem with overwriting!!!! :)
This morning I made a raw kale salad, and I still feel totally energized from it! :) It was so low calorie too--am in shock!! My body must have been really needing some green nourishment!
It was finely broken up, raw red kale that was chopped using a serrated knife. Some rice wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, and half a tablespoon of olive oil,…Continue
I woke up in the night itching all over my body, and with little red bumps in different places too!!! I am not surprised--I have very sensitive skin and I've been showering a lot more than I usually do lately, which has been leaving it very dry and more susceptible to whatever touches it. I prefer to shower every other, to even every two days (sounds gross, but obviously I don't sweat/create oils a lot if I'm literally peeling in places, or work in construction, etc.) because of this, but…Continue
