Help Ban Fur Sales in California!

On March 12, California’s Water, Parks, and Wildlife Committee will vote on a bill to implement a statewide fur ban, which is the first vote needed in the process of this bill becoming law. Please call and email to urge your representative to vote “Yes” on AB 44 before March 12th! (California residents only)

Find your assembly member’s contact information by entering your zip code at idausa.org/findmyrep and clicking on the “California” tab.

When you call, introduce yourself and where you are calling from, and simply say “Please vote yes on A.B. 44 to implement a statewide fur ban because California residents do not support animal cruelty for vanity.”

Visit my alert to send a letter to your representative here.

California Pure Naturals Skincare Review

Happy Sunday! I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend! It’s unusually warm in North Carolina today, so I was able to get some sunny pictures of the California Pure Naturals products I recently tried out!

So, a little info about this vegan and cruelty-free company:

“We are 100% committed to bringing you the safest, most potent and effective natural beauty products. We take the best of nature and combine it with our experience creating dermatologist grade formulas, for a superior, clean and pure skin care experience.”


California Pure Naturals Dual Action Scrub

First, I tried their Dual Action Scrub featuring California Pure Naturals’ Blackberry Antioxidant Complex. This multi-purpose scrub contains organic blackberry, kiwi, pomegranate, and grape to give your skin a burst of antioxidants to combat signs of aging, and walnut shell and papaya fruit extract to exfoliate away dullness.

This scrub smells fresh, fruity and delicious. The walnut shells are very fine, making this the perfect product to use for gentle exfoliation a few times per week. It leaves your face feeling and looking smooth and glowy without irritation. This scrub has definitely made its way into my heart (and skincare routine)!

California Pure Naturals Renewal Facial Serum

Next, is the Renewal Facial Serum designed to nourish and hydrate your skin with their Blackberry Antioxidant Complex mentioned above, Hyaluronic Acid, and vitamins C and E. This lightweight, lotion-like serum, instantly absorbs into the skin, leaving it silky smooth. It has the same, faint berry scent as the scrub, and is the perfect moisturizer to use both day and night. This is another winner!

California Pure Naturals Glow Facial Serum

Last, is the Glow Facial Oil featuring the Black Berry Antioxidant complex, and Jojoba and Evening Primrose oil to deeply hydrate and nourish the skin for a brighter, healthy appearance. Just like the serum, this product absorbs into the skin right away, and gives a dewy glow while providing deep hydration. I used this product at night and woke up to gorgeous skin!

The Bottom Line

Don’t miss out on California Pure Naturals’ products! Fruit is great for your insides, and it’s also fabulous for your skin! The more natural your products, the healthier you will be and the better your skin will look. Don’t clog your pores or absorb harmful chemicals when there are natural, vegan products like these available! I absolutely adore this line of products and my skin looks healthy, hydrated, and happy! I really couldn’t ask for more! Please give these products a try and let me know what you think!

Thank you, California Pure Naturals, for sending me these wonderful products to review!

SAN FRANCISCO (Oct 2, 2018) – Three brave animal activists will be branded with burning hot irons in San Francisco’s UN Plaza to expose the plight of 150 billion animals who are painfully mutilated and killed for food every year. It will be the first time a live human-branding protest has ever been attempted in California. The branding is being held on World Day for Farmed Animals and hosted by In Defense of Animals, a charity that has been fighting for animals for 30-years from its Bay Area headquarters.

What: Humans Branded in Solidarity With Farmed Animals

When: World Farmed Animals Day, Tuesday, October 2, 2018, 12pm – 1pm

Who: San Francisco animal activists, In Defense of Animals

Where: Civic Center/UN Plaza Station

Calf 269 was born on an Israeli dairy farm and rescued by activists just days before he was to be slaughtered. Animal activists around the world now brand the numbers 269 into their own skin to stand in solidarity with the rescued calf and billions of nameless animal victims of the food industry.

This event is part of a peaceful international protest movement to raise awareness of farmed animal suffering and to build compassion for animals.

Don’t miss out on this unique, once-in-a-lifetime event!

In Defense of Animals is an international animal protection organization with over 250,000 supporters and a 30-year history of fighting for animals, people, and the environment through education, campaigns, and hands-on rescue facilities in India, Africa, and rural Mississippi. www.idausa.org

California has passed The Pet Rescue and Adoption Act, which requires pet stores to exclusively sell rescue animals! Way to go, California!

This is a huge win for animals! With the amount of animal surrenders, homeless pets and euthanization rates on the rise, California has passed bill 485 which will ban the sale of dogs, cats, and rabbits from puppy mills, kitten factories, and mass breeding operations.

All animals sold in pet shops must come from animal shelters, rescues, or adoption centers! This will greatly reduce the amount of animals in shelters and increase adoptions significantly! This change will take place by January 2019.

Congratulations, California! Which state will be next?
