Creating a Home wear Capsule Wardrobe

Monday, April 24

From a young age that I have been wearing baggy, funny, cute pajamas around the house, but when we start to the age we need to find a better alternative to wearing pajamas all day. For so long I hated walking around the house in pajamas and having to answer the door or having to go to the street in my pajamas. 

So I decided to create a simple home wear wardrobe that didn't include those childlike pajamas that I had been wearing my entire life. It was very simple, I just picked up a few legging and some cool t-shirts and a nice pair of home shoes. Because regardless of what I do all day…I deserve to look nice and feel comfortable when answering the door to strangers right?

Here is a simple guide of how to create a Home wear wardrobe that you will be proud of!

+ Look in your closet // we all have those pieces that we like but haven't worn out for some unknown reason, grab those and wear them at home! I had a few t-shirt that I loved but I wasn't wearing, so I turned them into home clothes. Or maybe you have a white shirt that you don't wear because you found a better one that you prefer to wear out, use that old one at home. Just remember that you must feel good in the clothes, don't wear the old and ugly pieces that you don't like!

+ Baggy pants or legging // for me it's both, I love wearing legging around the house and for sleeping too, but I also have some looser pants that I wear on days that I feel bloated. I love pants with a cute pattern that can go nicely with a simple t-shirt.

+ Get some new pieces // don't feel embarrassed to go get some new t-shirt of leggings to wear around the house. You must look and feel nice even when relaxing on the couch. I like to use the sales to get those pieces, that way I don't feel so guilty for spending a lot of money on my home clothes.

+ Change out of your pajamas // you can still have pajamas to sleep in. Most of the times I wear my home clothes to bed, but there are those days when I have been doing some cleaning or gardening, so I change out of my home wear to my pajamas, but I force myself to change out of them every morning! and it's actually very satisfying and very easy.. well, maybe not in the cold months, haha. But this is a huge rule I follow so that I feel comfortable and pretty around my house.

Vianek Body Cream Review

Wednesday, April 19

Moisturizers and body lotions are a must for me in the colder months! Me and my boyfriend like to share the same beauty products and this one from Vianek has been our favorite the past few months. And to be honest, I think he loves is better than me!

For starters, the Vianek brand is amazing! a huge part of their products is Vegan, cruelty-free and organic. Their ingredients are made from mostly flowers, so they smell incredible! They have a huge variety of products, from hair to body, and they also have different series to care for different problems, like hydration, relaxing, anti-aging, nutritional and fortifying. 

For the past few months, I have been using their Hydrating Body Lotion and the smell of it is to die for! Is a mix of flowers with apricot, how awesome is that? a setback to this is that fact that it has honey as one of the main ingredients, but it's still an amazing body lotion and I would still recommend other brand products to any of my friends! ( I ordered it when I was still a vegetarian, and waste is unnecessary )

I am definitely going to get some more products to try out from this brand (only vegan ones), they have so many to choose from that I don't even know where to start from! Maybe a shampoo and a day cream, I'm definitely in need of those! 

I got this great Body Lotion from Fapex.pt for an amazing price discount, but you can also get it at Notino.co.uk.

INGREDIENTS // Aqua, Glycine Soja Oil, glicerina, sorbitano Estearato, Cocoato de Sacarose, Mel Extract, Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil, estearato de glicerina, Pulmonaria officinalis Extract, Linum Extract usitatissimum semente, Extrato de Calendula officinalis Flor, ácido esteárico, álcool Cetearyl, Hippophae Rhamnoides óleo, lecitina , acetato de tocoferol, goma de xantana, álcool benzílico, Parfum, ácido desidroacético, limoneno, linalol.

Vegan On a budget for 80€ a month

Thursday, April 13

image from Inspired by Nick

After making my first post about being Vegan on a budget for 2 people that would last an entire week, I decided to create a budget for a simple person for an entire month for around 70€ to 80€, depending on prices and campaigns. I also made a post with my basic groceries list, that guides every time I go shopping.

In this post, you can see all the things that I buy for the entire month, as well as prices. And also the recipes and meals that you can make with them. Some of the produce I don't buy all at once, like fruit and fresh veggies. I buy them weekly so that they don't go bad. But I always can stay around 80€ per month if not less.

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