I still have a Cantiq obsession, and Little Shop of Oils helps keep my babies fresh <3

As the title states, I have quite the Cantiq Los Angeles obsession. I’ve been amassing a collection of lacy creations by designer Chelsea Hughes for a few years now, and I love every piece dearly.

How, then, to preserve these hand-made lingerie articles of joy?

Cantiq recently collaborated with Little Shop of Oils, an all natural apothecary, on a line of anti microbial/bacterial lingerie mists!

These are a couple sample mists I received with an order, but you can snag some full-size mists via Cantiq’s site as well!

The mists keep your lingerie fresh for a few more wears, so you don’t have to constantly wash them and put miles on a delicate piece. As I said before, each piece is a work of art and dearly beloved by me, so anything that allows me to get longer life out of them and make them smell heavenly in the process is a win/win!!

“When you read the care instructions of your handmade bralette, do you let out a sigh when your eyes gloss over “hand wash only”? Well now we have teamed up with Little Shop of Oils to bring you a Anti Microbial/Bacterial Lingerie Mist, tested on each of our cantiq Laces, that will allow you to stretch out your time between washes. Scented lightly with organic essential oils, our Lingerie Mists are sure to keep your bralettes fresh

My obsession with Osea continues! Check out their Labor Day offer for a free mask~

masks-lifestyle-1-extended

Osea is one of my favorite non-toxic vegan skincare companies, and they were kind enough to send me some more products to sample on account of their Labor Day promotion kicking off!

I just finished a bath session with their white algae mask (my fav! I have reviewed it before) and my skin is very happy with the results. I followed the mask with their sea vitamin boost and the hyaluronic sea serum for moisturizing.Then I took a nap and happily drifted away into dreamland while my skin repaired itself.

A hidden gem in Las Vegas – Eatt Gourmet Bistro

Sooo the title pretty much says it all. Eatt is an unassuming little location on Sahara Ave in Las Vegas, and I hadn’t heard a thing about it until my boyfriend brought me there for a surprise dinner (I usually select where we eat but hey, sometimes it’s nice to be surprised!).

We had to wait a little bit for a party who had grown roots into their booth, but when we finally sat and asked for the vegan tasting course we had seen on their menu, we were not prepared for such flavors.

My boyfriend remarked that Eatt had a Michelin star, so I assumed it would be good. IT WAS PHENOMENAL.

The head chef was away that night, but sous chef Aymeric Delouis hit this one out of the park.

Behold, our Michelin star vegan feast. Go eat everything there at your earliest convenience; I couldn’t get enough of the flavors.

 

Follow Your Heart x The Plantbased Jetsetter – Beyond Burger sammich!

IMG_4110

Has everyone tried the Beyond Burger yet? I’ll wait. Good. ISN’T IT DELICIOUS?!

I decided to make a summer burger sammich with my Follow Your Heart haul – here’s the recipe for this yummy bbq treat!

Ingredients:

IMG_4107

  • Follow Your Heart Gluten Free Millet bread – 2 slices
  • Follow Your Heart American cheese – 1 slice
  • Follow Your Heart Pepperjack cheese – 1 slice
  • 1 romaine tomato – sliced
  • Follow Your Heart Chipotle Vegenaise – 1 tsp
  • Yellow mustard – 1 tsp
  • Organic ketchup – 1tsp
  • Follow Your Heart Vegenaise – tsp
  • Organic home grown micro greens – 1 pinch
  • Coconut oil spray
  • Salt – 1 pinch
  • Cayenne pepper – 1 pinch
  • Garlic Salt – 1 pinch
  • Beyond Burger – 1 burger

I used my little George Foreman grill to grill the Beyond Burger; spray the coconut oil on both sides and season the burger with salt, garlic salt, and cayenne pepper before placing on the hot grill. Check periodically, but it should take about 10 minutes or so to be cooked all the way through.

Open grill and place the cheese on top of the burger, letting it slightly melt onto the patty. Then, assemble the sammich to your satisfaction! You can see my order in the photo above, but it is up to you to build the burger sammich to your satisfaction.

Stuff in your face, and enjoy!!

EVXO x The Plantbased Jetsetter

So EVXO was good enough to send me some vegan, cruelty free makeup to try, and I am OBSESSED.

This makeup is now a staple in my makeup bag and travels with me everywhere. I was given brow pomade, two creamy lipsticks, and the best foundation ever (which subsequently smells like some sort of delicious cookie) to try.

Here are a few looks I tried with these products; I found that they all applied quite even and smooth; the brow pomade took a few applications to get right because my brows are light, but that was mostly user error from me not using the right brush.

Check out my looks and go pick up these products – I couldn’t give a more glowing (see what I did there) recommendation!!


Foundation color: Bisque
Lipsticks: Temptress and Coral Kisses
Brow Pomade: Light

Chica impresses!!

So the Venetian and the Palazzo hotels in Las Vegas aren’t really known for their vegan options or attention to dietary restrictions (though they can be found!), but I was pleasantly surprised by the service and the vegan options at Chica, a Latin-fusion restaurant that recently replaced DB Brasserie in the Venetian.

Platanos, guacamole, tortilla chips, and arepas!

The servers were incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and knew exactly what to omit or substitute. What they didn’t know for sure (due to changing menu items), they double checked.

Go check out this beautiful restaurant! The food, music, and decor are all a total hit.

Five stars from this Plantbased Jetsetter!

The Plantbased Jetsetter x Groceries Apparel


I had the pleasure of being gifted a t-shirt from the brand Groceries Apparel, and I’m delighted with it! 

Their clothing is made in the USA, it is Monsanto free with no pesticides involved, and sooo soft, made of 100% cotton! 

The shirt is great to lounge around in (as you see me doing here), paired with a handmade lingerie set from Cantiq Los Angeles, or one could dress it up with some accessories and have a great night out.


Check out this great brand!
