Top ten vegan goodies for 2019

Last month I had a chat with the woman shaking up the world of vegan lifestyle. Jodi Monelle is the founder of LIVEKINDLY, a beautiful online magazine featuring health, wellness and recipes… oh yeah and it’s all vegan.

It’s a shining example of how living cruelty free is possible, easy, and well, rather cool. It’s less about itchy felt socks and more about lush eco leather. It’s something even the hardcore carnivores among us can dip our toes into.

I asked Jodi to give me the scoop on what’s going to be hot in 2019 in the world of vegan lifestyle. Here’s her top ten:

  1. High Beauty Cannabis Facial Moisturizer and Cannabis Facial Oil. High Five Cannabis Facial Moisturizer contains 20% cannabis sativa seed oil to neutralize, balance & protect, while High Five Cannabis Facial Oil with 32% cannabis sativa seed oil is for more intensive repair & protection.

  2. Milk Makeup Kush Mascara and Milk Makeup Lip Gloss. Milk Makeup Kush High Volume mascara contains hemp-derived cannabis oil super thick, conditioned lashes, while its Lip Glaze contains meteorite powder (no joke!) for the ultimate sheen.

    great post! FYI, Oat milk is very popular here in NYC as well. Oats also lower cholestrol naturally. I am living proof:) Yes, diet and exercise as well. Thanks for post Nina!

      Thank you! Yes I had to give up dairy when breastfeeding my dairy intolerant child, but I never went back. Oat milk all the way! As you say, diet and exercise are key. x
