Project bottle - transitioning to all Cruelty Free

Ladies 


With transitioning to be cruelty-free, I had a lot of products I needed to get through some were full bottles or half full. So  I decided to put all my products that I needed to use up that weren't Cruelty-free in a box and just use those products. So far I've put a good dent on what I already have in my collection, I have somebody lotions that I still need to get through that will take some time. There are some products that I have that I still need to find the alternatives for, still in need of an SPF face lotion that is decent, any suggestions leave a comment.  What are some products you have that you wish you could get through quickly?

#Movember

Ladies 


During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awarareness or men's health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives. On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words, they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valour by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Part├ęs held around the world by Movember, for Movember.  Not only are they doing all above to bring forth about men's prostate cancers, but as of 2017 they are also doing mental health and testicular cancers'.

This is very close to my heart this year will be my 5th Movember with my boys'. They support me with donations and supporting me when it's breast cancer month the least I can do is help them with spreading the word of mens' health. If you have a husband/partner or even friends, we all know men don't like the doctors or even talk about their personal heath if we can open that just a little will help huge !

Hidrate 2.0 water bottle

Ladies 


Well, we have all seen this water bottle on Facebook, so I gave in and bought one. I got one of those Hidrate spark 2.0 bottles the ones that glow and indicate if you're behind water intake.  I don't drink enough water to start with and I really wanted to see if this really helped me drink water. Why I bought this is I'm going to give you a little insight, I would have 2 teas in a day and not have anything else maybe a beverage with dinner but that's it and never throughout the day either.  Also for once don't have to manually put in my water intake in an app, this water bottle logs it as you drink out of it.  The settle glow is a great reminder to drink, even the little settle funny notifications too help a lot and a great motivator. So glad I bit the bullet and got this water bottle it has really help me drink my water, it has really got me into drinking water.

- If you know others with the bottle you can add them as friends and have a healthy competition to see who drinks the more water.
