Happy Saturday my lovelies!
Thank you ahead of time for all your lovely submissions to Healthy Vegan Friday this week! I’ve already spent more time than I should drooling over the submissions and I know selecting favourites is going to be really difficult again this week. If you haven’t yet, head over to Healthy Vegan Friday #4 and browse the recipes and submit one or two of your own! You have until Tuesday to do so!
So for this week’s reading nook I was feeling a little more visual than usual. I was drawn to bright graphics and pictures as opposed to words and articles. Naturally this meant I was browsing Pinterest a whole ton and I decided I would share some of those finds this week! Isn’t it funny how many great reads and informative posts you can find by browsing pictures on Pinterest? I love it! Plus is just cheers me up- looking at all the pretty pictures reminds me that certain parts of life are still simple and beautiful even though other things are scary and uncertain.
DIY dry shampoo! I’ve been trying to reduce the number of times I wash my hair in a week which has left me feeling gross and icky more often than not. So I was thrilled to find this post at Vegan Beauty Review made from such simple ingredients! I mixed some up in an old spice jar which makes it super easy to sprinkle.
Another beauty remedy- this is a turmeric face mask from Henry Happened. Turmeric is a great anti-inflammatory and is high in anti-oxidants so would be great for healing and restoring delicate face skin. Can’t wait to make this on my next day off (don’t want to go outside with a yellow face!).

This post at Cauldron and Cupcakes is such an important reminder. All about how sometimes doing nothing is the best thing you can do for yourself. While it can feel like you are wasting time and should be productive, doing nothing IS productive. We all need rest and time to restore ourselves.
I need a juicer STAT so I can make this Iced Carrot “Latte” from brave lil’ juicer
with the prospect of moving to an apartment with a small kitchen, this idea for an easy-to-access pan storage system is totally appealing.
and finally- it’s shark week so I must pay homage to these noble sea creatures! I really loved this piece because while they are painted as terrifying and threatening, as this article at Treehugger explains in the article “What Would Happen if Sharks Disappeared?”, they are much more valuable to us being around than gone. And really, it’s not their fault they’re the ultimate predator, so let’s be compassionate k?
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
