what goes in your products?






Animal by-products!


What are animal by-products?

"Animal by-products are the parts of a slaughtered animal that are not directly
consumed by humans, including dead on farm animals and catering waste (i.e.
waste food originating from restaurants, catering facilities and kitchens) that contains
or has been in contact with meat products, whether cooked or uncooked. Some of
these products are used in animal proteins like meat-and-bone-meal, fats, gelatine,
collagen, petfood and other technical products, such as glue, leathers, soaps,
fertilisers etc. The alternative is their destruction, most often by incineration. "

That is absolutely disgusting and not acceptable. Road kill is even counted as an animal by-product. Did you know that every time you put on lipstick, you're applying animal fat to your lips? among a butt load of other gross ingredients.
I always had an inkling that most of the products I used contain animal by-products, but I really didn't think of what exactly they were. we learned about some of this stuff in Esthetics, but never in detail. Well, I will not be using any products anymore, other than Arbonne... which is a completely vegan line. They don't even use bees wax.! The makeup is even amazing. Bright eye pigments, smooth lip polish, moisturizing lipstick, non pore clogging foundation, etc. There's even a baby care line that is completely natural and organic and vegan. I've been using the FC5 line for the past few days and my skin feels the best it has ever felt. Especially, since being pregnant, my skin has been ridiculously dry.




I'll be posting a lot about this from now on. I want everyone to know what goes on and in their skin and how they can have radiant skin for the rest of their lives! And if you care about animals, you won't use what you've been used to. If you're interested in Arbonne products, check out the site, www.arbonne.com . but then get in touch with me and find out how you can get these products with a discount :)

Just saying

I love my life and I love who I have become.
hating is so unattractive. it takes twice as much energy to hate on someone, then to be nice to someone. I don't hate anyone anymore. and a huge weight is lifted off my shoulders. it feels good. you guys should try it. <3

babydoc



I had a baby doctor appointment today. Got an external sonogram. Saw the baby moving around. he/she wouldn't sit still. heard the strong heart beat! i can't wait to find out what i'm having. the suspense is crazy. I really want a girl now. I wanted a boy at first, but I just really want to dress up a girl all the time. no pink! purple, obviously! ;)
i mean, i'll be happy either way, of course. i also adore the girl's name that we have.
My next appointment is in a month, but I won't be able to find out the sex until the appointment after that. ugh, i wanna know NOW!

ok, here's my favorite photo of the day:



I want one so badly!

Much

Yes I happen to be aware that I have ugly feet, but I had to document my dayglo orange toes :)
deal with it.

today was a lovely day. the boyf took me for Japanese at my favorite restaurant, Tokyo. I've been eating at this place since I was 8 and it's still the best around. Zagat rated. I love it. it's tiny and cozy and not at all expensive. if more people knew about it, I'm sure they would expand. I like it low key though.

after lunch, I got myself a much needed pedicure. I haven't treated myself to anything so relaxing in a long ass time. it was seriously just what I needed. so relaxing. and of course I had to pick the ugliest color, but that's just me. I got a 10 minute back massage too. heaven.
I've been so stressed this past week, so it was a good way to end it... the week, that is.

pregnancy is so hard! luckily, the majority of my food upheaval has gone away, but nausea comes at night like clockwork. I am also constantly exhausted. I could get a full night of great sleep, wake up, and sleep for another 6 hours. seriously, I never knew how exhausting it can be. it's not like that for everyone, but it's what I'm getting the worst. I guess I shouldn't complain though, since I could be praying to the toilet gods all day.
I've also been stressed bc we all know that pregnancy does a number on your hormones. I get upset and emotional SO easily. the most lame, corny thing makes me sob uncontrollably. and I get extremely irritated at the drop of a dime. I started meditation again. haven't done it in awhile, but now seems like the perfect time to get back into it. hopefully that will start to help very soon. it takes practice.
another thing that bothers me is ppl who try to put me down for doing the right thing. the smut that this person spewed was so horrible. I don't see how someone you thought was a "best friend" could say such things. I didn't get upset over it, it just angered me. whatever, I know I'm going to be great at this and I'm so proud of myself that I chose my child over partying with people that will still be doing the same shit for a long time to come.

Frankie is going to a show tonight that Keith Murray is hosting, but I'm opting out. I'm exhausted as usual.

OH! propers to my girl, Drea. she is 31 weeks pregnant and was stung by a stingray yesterday and kept completely calm! what a good test for labor ;)
check out her blog:
shortandspicy.blogspot.com

I can't link it now bc I'm updating from my phone. I'm too lazy to get off the couch. a true fatty preggo <3

for now I'm watching the documentary, "hair: let the sunshine in", about my favorite play/album "Hair" (original Broadway version). It's abt hippies, the 60s, Vietnam, and love. my favorite since I was abt 12. I'll probably cry. :)

wishyouwell

don't knock me for doing the right thing
you're stuck in your ways
i'm moving forward

i hope you figure it out.
