Although the 11th month, November was originally the 9th month on the Roman calendar. The roots can be traced back to the original roman name for the month: "novem", meaning nine. I know, crazy. Although the line between fall and winter is sometimes blurry, November is also officially the last complete month of autumn. The month of scorpio and sagittarius has much more to it than just the birth stone of topaz. November is an awesome month that deserves more recognition, as it is often skipped over due to the anticipation of Christmas. Let's spread the love and give November some attention.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.
