While gaining my freshman 15 my first year of college, Cheesecake Factory Avocado Egg Rolls and PF Changs’ Lettuce Wraps were the staples in my diet. That may not seem too bad, but I am obviously omitting the late-night breakfast burritos and In and Out. So, needless to say, after stumbling upon these copycat Paleo Lettuce Wraps, I immediately wanted to recreate them for some Instagram-worthy pics.

From global warming to the latest mess from Donald Trump, doing our part to better our communities, and world, are now more important than ever. One such way is making sure to shop sustainable. But what does that truly mean? In a world where phrases like “organic”, “eco-friendly”, and “sustainable” are the go-to buzzwords in every marketers vocabulary, wading the waters of being a conscientious consumer can be hard.
Fortunately for you, Pretty Birds, we are rounding up a couple of our favorite eco-friendly fashion brands just in time for entering in to the colder months ahead.

There are only two days out of the year that I consider really worth counting down to. The first, of course, is the day my summer vacation starts, but surely not far behind is the magical, glorious, festive celebration of Christmas. When I was small, we had an Advent calendar in my house where I could find candy and small toys hidden behind the flap for each day. Designed with children in mind, these calendars are the perfect “mind-your-behavior-or-Santa’s-not-coming” tools, doling out Pavlovian treats once daily for good behavior, and I loved them. Now, as a grown beauty addict, I am thrilled that my industry has adopted my favorite holiday tradition into their own yearly production of BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDARS!! Every brand has their chance to shine in this special opportunity to taste test 24 travel-sized products leading up to the Big Day, from lipsticks to eye pencils to mini-facials and bath products. Is there anything else you would rather do while waiting for the holidays to roll around? Here are all of the Advent calendars to gift others and ourselves for Christmas 2017.
