Lately, I’ve had so much on my plate. Starting YouTube, maintaining this blog, photography classes, and creative writing have really gotten to your girl. Don’t get me wrong, these things are my hobbies and passions; I love them. But that doesn’t mean they don’t wear me out mentally sometimes. Working through this has reminded me to bring the fun back into my life. You’re probably thinking: “You’re 21, Kristen. Where did the fun go?” I think it snuck out of my postpartum suite 7 months ago. Have barely seen it since.
As you guys know, I’m on a journey to living a more healthy and natural lifestyle. I’ve been digging deeper into vegan, cruelty-free, organic and non-toxic beauty and am very excited to start switching the products I use. The only problem I’ve run into is where to start. I don’t want to commit to full-size bottles of anything just yet and I want to try more things than I actually want to pay for. (Funny, but true.)
Enter vegan subscription boxes!
My goal to cultivate a more natural lifestyle has led me into the life-changing world of sustainable fashion. In a previous post, I mentioned starting Project 333. What started as a way to simplify my day-to-day life has evolved into an opportunity for me to do my part in preserving the environment through sustainable shopping while sharing it with others.
If you’re a returning subscriber to the blog, you’re probably wondering what the heck all this change is about? What’s The Cocoa Lens? YouTube? Let me explain.
Move over March, April is here! With the beginning of April comes the end of my 30 day Yoga Challenge. Was it insightful? Did I succeed in doing yoga everyday? Am I a yoga guru now? Let’s get into it…
I’ve been in love with the idea of creating a capsule wardrobe for over a year now. The idea of having a carefully curated and cohesive closet of clothing is such a dream. So, finally, I’m doing it!
So here we are, almost to the middle of March and I have yet to post a single yoga pose on the gram. I’d like to tell you that even though I haven’t posted on Instagram, that I’ve been consistent with my daily home practice… but that would be a lie. Before we go into self-bashing, let’s pause. Consistency is important, but so is balance.
