February 2018 Favorites

I  seriously think this month went faster than any other month in my life, I  felt like the weeks went by so fast and didn’t get much done. Do you feel the same?

This month was all about LOVE, to others and ourselves. So I  spent a lot of time thinking on what are those things I enjoy doing, using and what can I  do to take of myself a bit better. A lot of those things ended up on my favorites, because well, I was using them all day, or watching some cool stuff on Netflix. 

So here are some of my Favorites of the month!

TO EAT + DRINK:

Amy’s Frozen Vegan Pizza

If you don’t eat cheese, you know that finding a good dairy free cheese it is hard. They are amazing brands now, but cheese on pizza it is just hard to find! I  have tried many many different ones, and on the frozen aisle there are always the same brands with weird pizza cheese taste, until I  found Amy’s. 

I  have tried other products and I’d love them, so I  thought to give it ago, and WOW! The vegan pizza it is SOOO GOOD! I got the Vegan Margherita Pizza, and ate it all by myself, not even kidding here. 

AfterGlow Matcha + Turmeric + Maca

In the past month, Matt completely gave up coffee. He was the one making it at home for us, so I  naturally gave it up too. It took a bit longer, but I ’m getting there. 

Because of the lack of coffee, I  had to drink something to replace it, so I  went back to Matcha. 

Lorena, the owner of After Glow Detox, sent me a pack to try and loved it! To mix things up, I  added turmeric and maca, and it makes it super tasty and creamy. Obsessed. 

TO USE + WEAR:

Cocokind Skin care

You know my latest obsession are oils, and al natural skincare and make up. I got a pack full with their goodies and had to try. 

I’m really loving everything I  got, but specially their sticks and the green mask. Super easy to use and very effective. I  have the matcha and macabeet stick with me all the time. I use the mask twice a week, and my skin has been feeling really smooth, and my break outs disappeared. 

My new Healthy Human Tumbler + Cup

As well this month, I  wanted to commit to something that makes me feel better but also our planet. I  decided to be zero waste as much as I  can. 

I  have a Healthy Human Bottle, but I  wanted a tumbler for my matcha, smoothies and so on. I  got Matt one as well for Valentines day, and got myself one. And we have been using it SOOOO MUCH! I love the size (it fits a large smoothie at Jugos), and it keeps the cold and hot for so long. 

I  also got myself a cute little cup for my teas at home, the eye reminds me that we all have a soul to look at, and somehow to focus. It is handmade by a woman, which I love! 

It is the mug on the photo above with the matcha latte.

Hoops and earnings by Jewels by SJB

Last year I went to my first vegan music and food festival in NYC, and one of the vendors was this vegan jewelry company. I didn't have cash with me that day, so I couldn't buy anything, but made sure to follow her and keep an eye for new items. 

I've been wanting hoops for a while, but didn't want to buy cheap ones, but instead good quality jewelry that will last long and that supports the same things as I do. 

Sue makes very beautiful pieces but she is also vegan, and she donates a percentage of her sales to an animal house, so with my purchase I wasn't only supporting a small business by a woman, but also an amazing cause. 

Got these two pair of earrings and I'm so in love with them!

TO MOVE YOUR BODY:

Core Flow at Yoga Works

I  took a long yoga class break, I  would just yoga at home, but I  needed to be back and keep myself accountable. So this week I  went back to my old studio and took my always favorite: Core Flow. Izzy, the instructor, creates very beautiful flows, you have to take her class to feel it and understand it. 

Since that class, I  literally went ahead and sign up to all her Friday classes for the rest of March. 

Highly recommend it, you will laugh and droll while watching,

TO WATCH:

Ugly Deliciuos, Taco Eposide on Netflix. 

A new documentary series on Netflix about different food and how it has changed over time and places. 

The second episode is about Tacos! I’m Mexican so I  had to watch it, and it was so eye opening, I  actually learnt so much about the history of Tacos, and was a bit of refreshment on our history, and how many different cultures have been mixed in Mexico (There’s a huge Chinese and Lebanese community, did you know that?) 

Altered Carbon

Ok. If you haven’t watch it, do it NOW!

I  normally don’t watch Sci-Fi, but this one is a MUST! Basically a man wakes up 250 years after, and it revolves his life in the new world. But this new world lets you have a chip on your neck that keeps your life in it, and you can change “sleeves” (bodies) and still be you, but on someone else body. Sounds weird, I  know. There’s a love story in all of this, which kept me even more interested, a Mexican actress is in it as well, just be aware, it is kinda weird, VERY graphic, VERY. 

Let me know if you watch it, and what you think!
