Vegan on Budget for 2

Friday, August 26
image found on google

A few months ago I made the decision of going Vegan. I never thought going Vegan was that difficult or it was too expensive, but I decided to make this post anyway to help others that wan't to go Vegan but have a strict budget to follow. I created a list that will feed me and my boyfriend for one week for under 30€. Veggies, fruit and pasta/rice are the most inexpensive produce on the planet, so it's very easy to get all you need for your meals for a nice price.

Bellow you will find the shopping list from Continente, a list of dishes you can make with those ingredients (and probably more) and a week menu so that you can see how I separate my daily meals. The recipes and meals are made in our own taste, of course you can always change a few things or make your own list. Meal planning all the way! 

Hope this post can help a few of you that are on a Vegan journey.

My Organic Summer Essentials

Monday, August 22

I love Summer beauty, and I also know how important it is! In the Summer I try to keep my skin as healthy as I can, and as safe as I can. In the Summer, I like to resort to these few products to keep my sun looking healthy and beautiful.

+ Tanning Sunscreen Lotion //  I always must have a sunscreen with me to keep my skin safe from the harsh sun rays, but still be able to have a nice tan. That's why I prefer a sunscreen that is also a tanning lotion. My recommendation? the Korres Sun Care Walnut & Coconut with SPF 20

+ Lip Balm with SPF // To keep hand in hand with my sunscreen is a good lipbalm, also with SPF in it. The lips are part of our face and they will also be damaged by the sun if we don't protect them. My recommendation? the Korres Decorative Care Mandarin Lip Balm with SPF 15

+ Rich Face Cream // This is a everyday must, but in the Summer our skin tends to be more dry and in need of more hydration, so I like to opt for a rich and hydrating day cream. And since I have some problem areas on my face due to acne, I like to choose one that can also help with that problem. My recommendation? the Make Me BIO Beautiful Face cream for Imperfections

+ Argan Oil // A must for me in the Summer is definitely Argan Oil, I live by it when my skin is dry and in need of a boost. So I love using an Argan oil soap and also an Argan Oil oil to keep my skin smooth and hydrated. My recommendation? the Oli-Oly Argan Oil and Soap.

+ Shaving Oil // We girls need to keep our shaving in check, I like to shave my legs, but I always felt that water wasn't doing the trick in helping to do a smooth shaving, so I got a shaving oil and I haven't looked back since! My recommendation? the Saloos Shaving Shower Oil

+ Body Lotion // After a day at the beach and warm shower our skin needs a instant hydrating boost! So I never, ever, forget to apply my lotion so that I can keep my skin smooth, hydrated and pretty. My recommendation? the Korres Lily Bouquet body lotion 

+ The red Nailpolish // I'm LOVE to have my nails painted red. I don'y know why, but in the Summer if I don't have red on my nails it ain't Summer, ha ha. I like to wear the most natural formula I can find, and I have fallen in love with the Korres nailpolishes. My recommendation? the Korres nailpolish in Tempting Coral

You can go and try out some of my faves at BeautySpin.com or Fapex.pt ! You can also go check out their Organic selection, they have a lot of amazing products for Summer!
