Carli Bybel



The first palette by Carli Bybel has the perfect shades for fall yet you can wear them at any point, any season, and at any mood due to the beautiful selection of great colors of both shimmery and matte that will look stunning no matter the occasion.
Both the shimmery and matte ones are just as lovely, smooth, and looks fantastic alone, or together. 

They’re well pigmented as you can tell from the last image, and that’s only after one swipe.
I love the semi-creamy formula, making it easy to apply and blend beautifully with other shades, giving the perfect smokey look if that is what you’re trying to achieve.
Whether you’re a professional MUA, or just getting started, anyone can work with the shadows and highlights. It’s a total must product that has to join your makeup collection, an amazing palette for an amazing price. Cannot wait to get my hands on the new palette.

I have no negative comments regarding the palette, I believe in it, and in Carli’s work behind it. Everyone involved did a phenomenal job bringing a product that in one way or another will suit anyone and everyone. The palette is also cruelty free – it has the leaping bunny symbol on the back, it’s vegan, paraben free, and allergy tested too. 10/10

 

Vegan expo in Stockholm






Went to the Vegan Expo in Stockholm and had a blast, surrounded by beautiful like-minded people, volunteers, and helpful workers who delivered information, and delicious vegan treats for everyone to taste and enjoy.

I brought a little bit of everything with me back home, from food, snacks, cookies, to books, and tons of flyers for me to read and update my knowledge regarding the animals, environment, and vegan lifestyle.

I was there for around two hours, and it felt like time literally flew by as I was floating around on a fluffy green cloud, completely blissfully at all the amazing food that was vegan, cruelty-free, and organic. Some stands even had makeup, skincare, and clothes.
Big thank you to everyone involved, I’m looking forward to next years event. Xo, Beauty

Snack-attack





Homemade vegan dip with organic tortilla and chips + botanically brewed herb beverage with cola flavor.

You’ll need;
Plant-based quark (always use Alpro’s brand)
Chives (after taste)
Green olives (a handful)
Red Onion (less than half)
1 tea-spoon of Olive oil
Salt (after taste)
Pepper (after taste)
Half tea spoon powdered garlic
1/2 tea-spoon Sambal Oelek

Chop the red onion, green olives, and chives. Throw it onto the quark, add the spices after personal taste and stir everything together.

Vegan rolls

Simple, yet delicious vegan rolls that literally took less than 10 minutes to make.

You’ll need;
Flatbread (make sure that it’s milk free)
Vegan-friendly cream cheese (I used one with herbs and chives from the brand Tofutti)
And vegan-friendly ham from Tofurky

Spread the cream cheese, add the ham, roll it and slice it. To make it more colorful, you can always add something green, such a baby spinach or anything your heart desires. I was starving so I just used the cream cheese and ham. :)
+ decorated them with edible flowers.


Protein Rich Salad

Black lentils; contain the third-highest levels of protein, it also reduces blood cholesterol since it contains high levels of soluble fiber. Amazing source of iron, which transports oxygen throughout your body and is key to energy production and metabolism. Low in calories & practically no fat.

Bulgur; is rich in fiber, protein, iron and vitamin B-6. By being low on B-6 and folate, levels of homocysteine can build up, which is a risk factor for developing cardiovascular disease.

Onions; known as one of the world’s healthiest foods. Great source of Vitamins C, and also contains small levels of calcium, potassium, folate, magnesium and B6.

Tomatoes; Tomatoes are packed full of beneficial nutrients and antioxidants and are a rich source of vitamins A and C and folic acid.

Corn; Rich in Vitamin B (especially Thiamin and Niacin. Thiamin is essential for maintaining nerve health and cognitive function.) And if you’re feeling low and tired, chances are your body is low on B vitamins.

+ Vegan feta cheese, lime juice & herbs. 

Greens and tofu

Simplicity is the key sometimes, every now and then I like to keep it simple, yet filled with nutritions and vitamins!

Lettuce; Most people tends to underestimate lettuce, assuming is practically just water but don’t be fooled, it’s filled with Vitamin A, carotene & potassium. Plus, Vitamin K that is important for protein structure which supports healthy bones and other tissues.

Spinach; Packed with Vitamin A, B2,B6,B9,C,E & Also loads of potassium,
calcium, magnesium & iron. It is also considered good for stomach ulcer. Spinach also contains Coenzyme Q-10, copper and other beneficial substances.

Marinated mushrooms; High level of the antioxidant ergothioneine, helps prevention of cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Marinted tofu; Contains no cholesterol, and is an excellent source of protein, iron, and calcium.
Iron and Calcium is crucial if you’re vegan since iron is usually found in meat and calcium in dairy products.
So, as if you are thinking of changing into a vegan lifestyle, you must find replacements so you won’t miss out on any of the minerals, nutrients, or vitamins that are important for our body and system to function properly.

Delivores (bought at Goodstores) Swedish Skagen mixture is life-changing. I decided to try it with oven baked potatoes, a typical Swedish dish, but you can add it on toast, or whatever your heart pleases.

Stick some holes in the potatoes/s to avoid chances of it exploding, wrap it up in foil, and shove it in the oven for around 1h, in 225 degrees. Once it’s done, fill it with the mixture, and decorate it with lemon slices and dill! ;)

I started by boiling the veggies with a vegetable broth for around 10 minutes, just so to soften up the carrots and broccoli a touch. Then fried them in coconut fat, added the coconot milk, salt & peppar after taste and a little bit of curry. Now, so the red curry won’t burn the living shit out of me, I tend to take a little tea spoon with it and mix it with water, once it’s liquid stir it in together with the coconut milk and veggies.
