We all know life can be very expensive, from monthly bills to everyday costs; things add up and can hit your budget hard. Often, you may find yourself left with little cash for “extras” like beauty basics, cleansers, moisturizers and sun protectants. The best thing to do is become a beauty budget guru by looking for specials online, signing up for newsletters and staying connected with your favorite brands. Frequently, special offers and great deals are given to Facebook fans, through Twitter and via email. By keeping up with the brands you love, you can save money and look fabulous while doing it. Developing a beauty budget is essential to keeping up your good looks without breaking your bank.

Made with almond flour, a gluten-free alternative to traditional wheat-based flours, it’s not only OK for everyone to enjoy, it’s infused with natural, nutty flavor.

We’re not big coffee drinkers, but when an extra kick is needed in the morning, I like to make one of these energizing yet nourishing smoothies.

Vegan baked goods often have a bad rap—turn out one “off” batch and no one will want to touch your “crumbly and dry” dairy-free desserts again. When it comes to cornbread—which can bake up dry even with dairy in the mix—making a moist, cake-like confection is tricky. I played around with a basic recipe to find the perfect blend of ingredients, which includes homemade flax “eggs,” rich coconut oil and your choice of maple syrup or agave.
