Inspirational Woman: Carly Schroeder

Actress Carly Schroeder (25) has been in the spotlight since the age of 3, starring in advertising roles as well as in TV shows, such as Port Charles and General Hospital, Dawson’s Creek and Lizzie McGuire and several films.  She’s a vegan, animal activist and extreme sports advocate, who spends much of her time climbing mountains as a free solo climber, when she’s not running marathons or in the water surfing or paddle boarding.  Here she shares her health and beauty secrets. What does being naturally beautiful mean to you? I’m an actress/model and I’m a free solo climber (no ropes) so, I’ve learned that “actress/model pretty” is never natural!  Natural is when I’m rock climbing. You can’t have a ton of makeup on with all the sweat and dirt and rocks falling at you. Natural beauty is the color of your eyes, the sun-kissed glow of your skin, the flushed lip color with a big smile. A little cover up, Chapstick and waterproof mascara never hurt though haha 😉 What is/are your healthy diet secrets? I’m …

vanilla from mexico

Versatile Vanilla – yet another Mexican miracle plant!

The Totonac people, who inhabit the East Coast of Mexico in the present-day state of Veracruz, were the first to actually cultivate vanilla. According to Totonac mythology, this beautiful native Mexican tropical orchid was born when Princess Xanat, forbidden by her father from marrying a mortal, fled to the forest with her lover. The lovers were captured and beheaded and where their blood touched the ground, the vine of the tropical orchid grew. In the 15th century named the fruit tlilxochitl, or “black flower”, after the matured fruit that shrivels and turns black shortly after it’s picked. Vanilla got its modern name from Spanish explorers who arrived at the Gulf Coast of Mexico in the early 16th century. They called it vainilla, or “little pod” and until the mid-19th century, when French entrepreneurs shipped it to the islands of Réunion and Mauritius in hopes of producing vanilla, Mexico was the chief producer of vanilla. Now Vanilla is cultivated in most tropical corners of the world. Versatile Vanilla It has the most enticing, beautiful, intoxicating aroma. …

I never expected to love being a mummy as much as I do. It’s the most joyful I’ve ever felt! How do you juggle working as an actress and being a mum? I don’t really! I only went back for a few months after Velvet was born to finish up a job I’d been on for some time. It was really difficult juggling it all. I’m finished now and have taken the rest of the year off to be a mum. Are you a healthy eater? Yes, I eat really well and enjoy cooking a lot. I prefer savoury food over sweet any day and I’m sure most of …

Vegan vs. Cruelty Free Makeup

What’s the difference? Good question! Vegan is a lifestyle choice that many people simply associate with diet – that’s to say the idea that being vegan means not eating anything to do with animals. And that is true of people who choose to be vegan in terms of what they eat. But veganism has a lot more to it. To be truly vegan, you basically don’t have anything to do with animal-derived products in any way – and animals include every living creature, not just the furry kind…not in food, cosmetics, toiletries, clothes, shoes, homewares or household products. All vegan cosmetics will be Cruelty Free by virtue of the fact they’ve not had anything to do with any animal products or derivatives at any point in their manufacture. But not all cosmetics and beauty products that are certified Cruelty Free are vegan. They may not have tested on animals at any point in their process, but if their ingredients include anything that is derived from animals, e.g. honey, beeswax or goat’s milk for example, they …

Choose Cruelty Free: Say “No” to animal testing

We would like all Australians to get behind the campaign to ban animal testing for cosmetics and to ban the sale of products whose ingredients have been tested on animals. Animal testing for cosmetics has now been banned in the EU for almost two years. Now it’s time for Australia to get on board too. You may not know it but animal testing for cosmetics is still legal in Australia. Although assumed to occur infrequently, there are no official statistics to show how often testing is conducted or how many animals are subjected to suffering. Additionally, many of the cosmetics on sale in Australia’s shops will have been tested on animals in another country and while the actual end product may not have been tested on animals, individual ingredients may have been. There are a great many ways of getting around it and many of the world’s largest cosmetics brands have been tested on animals at some point in the manufacture process. The End Cruel Cosmetics Bill 2014 seeks to ban both cosmetics animal testing …
