ITS LAURENNVLOGS :D

Oh thanks. :) Did you sub to VegCouple? It is our couple's vlog. :)

Ask me anything

hi your my most favorite utuber ever :)

Thank you! I wish I knew who you were! :)

Ask me anything

If you were single, would you date someone 10 years older, or does that sound gross?

I have tended to gravitate towards younger men since I feel I have a youthful, fun personality but if I were single age wouldn't matter to me very much. My bf is younger than me but it doesn't bother me. It is about the individual person and your connection.

Vegan Beauty Resources

So today I got a package in the mail! :)

Wanna guess what it was?

It was my Vegan Palette from Urban Decay and Tuscan Blood Orange perfume from Pacifica. All packed up in a pretty brown Sephora box. :) It also came with 3 perfume samples... I think 2 of them may be vegan. I am trying to research them. I will get back to you when I know more. I am afraid that I am going to become obsessed with vegan perfumes. I have some solid ones from etsy... and a couple of roll on ones from etsy as well but not many spray perfumes. I would like to start collecting some, especially from Pacifica since the scents are so lovely and available at Sephora and I have a Sephora near me. The boxes and bottles are also lovely so they will look pretty if I ever get a vanity table set up nice in my room.

I plan to play with my palette and post combo ideas and maybe even a tutorial for those interested. I haven't used the palette yet but I may try it out tomorrow.

I was browsing the net looking for other vegan perfumes and makeup and such and wanted to share some sites and blogs related to the topic so check them out below:

Kindly Indulge Me blog about vegan indulgences including makeup, perfumes, food and more relating to a vegan lifestyle

Chic Vegan Blog about cruelty-free and vegan makeup, fashion and more

Cruelty-Free Face Products, companies and video tutorials

My Makeup Mirror List of companies that don't test and offer some if not most or all vegan products.

I am sure all you ladies, vegan or not will enjoy these links and there are even some posts and products that may help the men in your lives. Enjoy!

Long time no see!

I know I haven't blogged in FOREVER... (just about LOL) but I was thinking about some topics I tend to like blogging about: makeup, fashion etc. So I figured I would write a blog entry for all my loyal blog followers who are still with me after all this time. Also hello to the new followers!

So what have I been up to? Well yesterday I went to the big city of NYC with my boyfriend, Brandon and my bff, Quincy. :) I will post some pictures soon but I am still waiting on all pics to be uploaded. There is also some video clips that need uploading and editing so I will do a seperate post about that. :)

In the world of fashion, I have been thrifting now and then lately and have been becoming a bit obsessed with fall fashion, ugly sweaters (which really aren't that ugly in my opinion) and chictopia. Please fan and friend me if you have an account there.

I have been quite lazy with my makeup lately and haven't Konaded in so long. I have misplaced my stampers yet again! I was thinking about posting outfit photos and haul photos and "things I am loving" pics to my blog. So what do you think? What would you like to see?

Some fashion and makeup type items I am lemming right now:

Susan Nichole handbags, particularly Stella and Savannah
Pacifica fragrances, especially the fruity scents such as Tuscan Blood Orange and Brazilian Mango Grapefruit.
The Urban Decay Vegan Palette: beautiful packaging, good reviews and would be my first UD palette and the only thing I own from them beside a blue eyeliner pencil (Deviant I think...)
Nubar nail polishes, most wanted are Peacock Feathers, 2010 and Purple Beach.

Eat, Pray, Love

Eat, Pray, LoveEat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This book was entertaining, touching and inspiring. It taught me about appreciating life and has encouraged me to follow my spiritual path more deeply. It only took me so long to read because the pages were large and the print was smaller than I am used to since this was in paper and not on my Kindle.

View all my reviews >>


Has anyone else read it? What did you think?

In unrelated news... I am going to upstate New York with my boyfriend, Brandon for a family reunion. I will take lots of pictures and will hopefully post them on here or make a video soon. If you haven't already please check me out on chictopia. It is a fun fashion blog site where you can follow people whose style you like, post your own pics and save your favorites. You can even earn points to swap for items you want.

A cute site I found!

http://pupe.ameba.jp/

You can make a little doll to dress up and earn ribbons to buy clothes for her. One of the ways to earn ribbons is by uploading pictures of your clothes. I am going to be taking pictures of my clothes and adding them here. If you want to play too you can check out my clothes while you are there. I am going to add some pictures tomorrow.

are there any quirky habits you have or things you do when no one is watching?

I have many quirky habits about me, Quincy. I don't know where to begin... I play with my hair a lot. I pick at my nail polish when it starts to chip. I collect stuffed animals (still) I buy books for my Kindle and in paper even though I have plenty to read to keep me busy for a long long time. I buy clothes even though I have too many. I get excited when I see cows. I daydream about things all the time. I have food cravings that last for days. I go to look up something online and forget what it was. I can't think of any now but I have a "Nerdy Things About Me" video on YouTube you may like :) Sorry I took so long to answer. I totally forgot about this thing LOL.

When did you first start painting your nails or realize how much you loved nail artistry?--VeganValerie.blogspot.com

I just recently got into painting my nails again. I didn't have many nail polishes since all the ones I had were old and from before I went vegan. I have always loved color (I studied art in college) So I started looking for vegan nail polish brands and started collecting polishes and got into nail art as well. I have only been interested in my nails again for about the last year or so. Thanks for your question Valerie!

Brown and Blue Eye Look

This is a look I did one day last week. I took pictures but I forgot to upload them and blog about it. I got the inspiration from my boyfriend. His favorite colors are black, brown and blue.









I used Everyday Minerals eyeshadow in Laptop and Anna Karenina. Laptop is the brown color and Anna Karenina is the dark blue. I also used Urban Decay pencil liner in Deviant on the lower lash line followed by Anna Karenina to mute the color and deepen it so it wasn't as dark. Then I used Laptop OVER THAT to soften it even more. I finished with EcoBella mascara in Black and filled my brows with the brow color from E.L.F.'s Mini Makeup Collection. I used my regular foundation (EDM Beige Sun-kissed Fair in Semi Matte) and EDM Natural Reflections fininshing powder in Fair. I used EDM Timeshare blush (a matte berry tone - definitely cool if you are wondering)

EDM = Everyday Minerals
E.L.F. = Eyes Lips Face

As far as I know ALL of these products are still available. I did not get any of these products for free and am not getting paid to blog about them. Thanks :)

Avatar Nails and Wavy Hair :)

I went last week and seen Avatar with my boyfriend. I was inspired to create Avatar themed nails with Konad. I would have added glitter to the dots if I had glitter nail art pens. (Like the glowing freckles the Na'vi have.) I used Zoya's Jo for the background color and blue Konad stamping polish and plate number M73. I hope you like it. It is a more subtle look but that is what I was going for. I still have them done this way today :)

For the wavy hair:

I started at the nape of the neck and sectioned my hair with my fingers not a comb and braided. I worked in layers ending with the top of my head. Like so:

Then I left them in overnight and took them out and added Jonathan Leave in Conditioner to reduce frizzies and smooth it.

I hope you enjoyed my blog! Please follow and also follow me on twitter and youtube. My username on both is awesomevegan. :) Thanks for reading!
