I've struggled my entire life trying to decide "what I want to do with it", as I'm sure most of you have. It can be a daunting question, a lingering cloud of anticipation with so much depending on the answer. Some people search their whole lives and never find it, however I am no longer one of those searchers. Last week I had a moment, I was alone watching footage from the largest animal rights march in history and something happened to me. It's hard to explain, but it was like I had a reunion with my highest self, saying finally, I know who I am and why. My tears poured with conviction as I envisioned myself marching front and center with the other activists. I was enveloped into full transparency about what I was made for and I know without a doubt now- this is it. I will no longer conjecture about my future because I know where my peace lives- it's in the fight. The fight for justice, the fight for freedom, the fight for the voiceless victims and our sacred planet. I cannot pretend or allow myself to be reduced to a "beauty guru" when the activist, the HUMAN in me is so much stronger. She will not be suppressed- not for superficial status, not for money, not for social praise or condemnation, and I'm sorry I ever let my biggest enemy, my fear, take any position at all. I feel stronger than ever and my voice will be heard. I will continue to practice makeup as it's a passion I will always love, but I am doing myself, the community, and the animals a huge injustice by not taking my activism seriously. I will expect to lose followers, but do not care. The apathetic sheep will be replaced with conscious, compassionate minds who wish to see progression in this lifetime. Although I'm aware this is all a big game- I cannot deny that my hand still burns over a flame. Suffering is real. And I'm fortunate enough to be able to do something about it... if you could too, would you?
MASSIVE THANKS to @earthlinged @jamesaspey @joey_carbstrong @rob____banks @crisveganfit @tal_gilboa_official and so many more heroic souls that inspire me every. single. day. to be better for the animals. I wouldn't be who I am today if they weren't who they are. Eternally grateful.

  • I feel like I'm in this search now, trying to find my purpose in life. I'm in a similar place to you mentally as you were a while back, and my physical health is bad but those things I'm getting help for/with. It's the search to find a future I'll connect with and love, how to harness my own passion for animal rights, veganism and protecting the world I've struggled with. But you just gave me some hope I'll find that future. You have already made a great difference just being vocal and open with your journey and passion, you can only make an even greater difference now.

  • Yesss 🙌👏❤️ Animals need a voice, and the treatment of them is horrific most of the time. You inspired me to throw out thousands of dollars worth of animal tested beauty products and stop buying milk. I now buy almond milk and I only buy cruelty free products thanks to your voice. I’m really happy to hear you found your true purpose and I hope you continue to make a difference for all animals in this world. Xo-Danielle @alisonhenryy

  • @abielyaf why not try it?

  • Yes suffering is real. This is empowering because it helps those on the fence also break out of their shell! Thank you❤️

  • I’ve been following you for years, originally for your makeup videos (your talent is so impressive) and I have to say that your spiritual/personal evolution and growth is inspiring. I know you had a really tough time when you started to wake up, and I went through something similar myself. As a fellow vegan, I’m so happy to see you outspoken about this issue and it continues to inspire me to be more active in dissolving cruelty also ❤️

  • Thank you for this! I love it:)

  • It's so crazy. I remember watching your videos a few years back and I knew how much you loved animals and I kept thinking, if only she knew 😭 I secretly knew you were vegan at heart lol and here you are. Just makes me so much more of a fan 😊💞

  • @earth.babie omg I feel the same way, i don’t know what took me so long 😭

  • The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible god and slaughters a visible nature, without realizing that this nature he slaughters is this invisible god he worships. I'm glad to see others are finally understanding the importance of flora and fauna activism.

Hello lovely strangers/friends! I’ve missed ya’s! I’ve been a little distant lately and I would apologize for it but one of my resolutions this year is to stop apologizing for everything, especially for things I cannot always control, like manic depression, OCD, and anxiety. And you’re prob like WOAH BITCH did you really just bring that taboo shit up out of nowhere on a selfie caption??? Why yes, yes I did 🤘🏼😂 And no I’m not just tryna be ~deep~ on every post now haha I wanna bring it up because I believe 2018 is going to be a huge year for mental health, and I think a major way to kickstart that is to just start talking about it like it’s normal, because guess what? IT IS!!!!! I GOT IT, YOU GOT IT, ERRYBODY GOT IT!! 😩😂 Lol but seriously, the more openly we speak about it, the less scary and intimidating it becomes. And the more people we can get to laugh at the stigma behind mental illness, instead of the illness itself, the more room we can open up for understanding and healing. Because the cure is out there, but no one can find it if they’re too embarrassed to admit they’re sick.
Well, I’m not embarrassed. I’ll take one for the team and type it all up on instagram, put myself on blast and tell ya I’m totally struggling!! With like, everything!! I cry 10 times a day!!! Haha and why is that okay? Because I know I’m not the only one!! We all have a dark hole we fall into and there’s nothing more frustrating than having others stand at the top, look in and say “just get out?? It’s all fine?? Its not that deep?? Why you in there??”
So I won’t be doing that. I couldn’t do that even if I wanted to, because I know that place all too well. I just want to meet you down there, wherever you are, exactly as you are, and sit with you in the dark, because I have my own dark place and I believe we have a better chance of crawling out if we do it together. Vulnerability is our most accurate measure of courage, so let’s be courageous enough to meet people where they’re at, even if it means leaving the light for total darkness. Sometimes the light you bring is the only light we see, and that is empathy. That is love. That is the cure ❤️❤️❤️

Storytime!! I got bangs!! I got bangs and that’s it. That’s the story.. hahah no jk there’s a real story and it goes like this: Once upon a time I was @ my hair salon and a girl comes in and sits in the chair like diagonally behind me so when we look in the mirror we can see each other’s faces. So naturally we made lots of awkward eye contact and I could basically hear everything she said and yes I was eavesdropping 😅 The moment she sat down she apologized to her stylist for the way she looked. The thing is- she looked totally fine, she just wasn’t wearing any makeup. I could just hear the insecurity in her voice, and it broke my heart not only because she was so pretty without makeup and couldn’t see it, but because that is what I used to do. It took everything in me in that moment to not turn around and give her an entire self-love speech. But I refrained, even after she sat back down after rinsing and made another comment about how she now looked like a pterodactyl, like the dinosaur, because her hair was slicked back and wet (?!) I listened as the stylist uncomfortably refuted her negative comments “what?? No girl you’re totally fineeee!” And I knew this wasn’t a case of fishing for compliments, she was genuinely uncomfortable with her own presence and felt like she needed to beat people to the punch, as if they were already thinking such things about her. But y’all, the mere idea of APOLOGIZING to people when you’ve done nothing wrong to them is useless and doesn’t even make sense because your face is not a crime, your acne is not scaring people and your bare face is not offensive nor in need of some kind of explanation. You are who you are, and that needs NO apology; to anyone, under any circumstance, ever. And I felt for that girl, and I still wish I had said something to her, because she is the reason I got bangs after I saw how amazing they looked on her when she walked out. And that’s the catch22. Her believing she was ugly didn’t stop her beauty from shining and inspiring others, it only limited her chance to see it for herself, and that’s the real crime. You are beautiful and worthy. Stop apologizing. The end ☺️💕✨

Yo guys idk what I’m doing over here but I gotta vent some shit cuz my counselor is outta town for the holidays haha #relatable so I guess the main thing is I’m in a rut- woooo big surprise/ but like I keep finding myself here. I find a groove for like 3.5 seconds and then I’m back on my ass, grasping at the air for some meaning in this life!!! For example: I’ve had this fucking green sparkly Christmas look in my head for weeks & tried to film it 3 times. Ive never had to re-film a video before, I never rehearse my looks, I never mess up and throw in the towel as easy as I am now. And I’m letting it get to me y’all, I am. My perfectionism is like “yo bitch I’m here to party” and I’m like “BITCH”. So point is- I feel like a dimly lit flame and I want to be ON FIREE. But good thing is- it’s the “new year”. So I get the perfect excuse to cultivate all this changgeee. I even bought a planner and wrote my resolutions in it like a real human adult. And one of my resolutions in my planner is to USE my planner so rock on Alison, you are a special star. I’m working on my negative self talk in the new year as well so as much as I’d like to tell myself I’m an incompetent piece of shit who couldn’t succeed if she tried- I’m gonna say it’s alright dude you tried and you can try again and hopefully it’ll look dope and people won’t hate you and you won’t have 9 subscribers by the time it uploads!! But regardless of YouTube and all that, I’m applying for a full time job out in the middle of nowhere doing something I love so send me some chill vibes about that and we’ll see if I’m meant to go that direction. The future is such a weird concept LOL. I also think it’s funny how we all think everyone around us has their shit together when I’m pretty sure no one does. Like no one actually knows what the fuck is going on. And that’s pretty comforting, if you really think about it. I’m also going to be writing on my blog a lot more- things similar to this, just letting my subconscious mutter some clumsy words until I can see clearly again. Ah well, I feel decently better. I know I said I was in a rut but boiiii I feel a gro0ove comin on 😏🌈💃🏻👀⭐ ps. Tag the artist if u know them!!!!

My “christmas” dinner this year was sooo bomb 😩🙏🏻😋🙌🏼 Shoutout @madisonxhenry for killing the mac n’ cheeze && shoutout @the_tofurky_company for NAILING the “ham” 🤤👌🏼(and Mom too 😇) The part that made this meal SO amazing though was the fact that no one had to lose their life for it. Plant-based food is nowhere near boring or dull or just salads 😝 If you are wanting to try veganism 🌱but have no clue where to start, there is a great resource called Challenge22.com where you get your own mentor to help you along your journey. It’s a great New Years resolution; to move towards a lifestyle that reduces your carbon footprint, reduces animal suffering, and raises your health and consciousness.
AND TASTES AMAZING!! Love and light and all that to ya’s and have a wonderful and safe New Years 💕💫🙏🏻

As silly as it all sounds, it took me a long time to be comfortable with my own face. Of course body image is an issue- but I feel like nobody really stresses the insanity of how much girls (and guys) really hate their own faces- the acne that we patch away, the wrinkles we smooth out, even going as far as “fixing” our actual face structure- lowering hair lines, enlarging our lips, straightening our noses... and it is, insanity. Our photoshop obsessed society has turned us against ourselves. I know girls who would never post a selfie like this and I feel that on every level. It isn’t easy when you look at girls who quite literally look “perfect”, even with no makeup on. Like shit. But y’all. You are the perfect combination of your mother and fathers DNA. You are a miracle of a creation, and I’ll even take it a step further- You arrived on this planet without asking to and now you’re here with this flesh suit on. You have a face and a body and it is yours. IT is YOURS. IT is not YOU. It contains your very essence and is the very means by which you get to read these words, but it is not you. I know how hard it is to snap out of it and truly appreciate your face and see it from a different perspective. But It has no control over how it makes you feel- only you do. You can choose to love it or choose to hate it, it is purely up to you. I just want to remind you that every person feels this resistance, this disappointment that we didn’t arrive here looking like her. But haven’t we been here before? Haven’t you already compared yourself enough? because we all know it does no good & doesn’t change a thing on your face. It is wasted energy, yet we continue on at the expense of our own self-love, and what could be more detrimental considering how fucking AMAZING you are?? You have a divine self in there and it is much more important than this vehicle you drive around in. I don’t have the answer to this problem, but I am trying my best to not give a fuck what anything thinks of my face, because as the saying goes, “Nobody is superior, nobody is inferior, but nobody is equal either. Simply unique, incomparable. I am I, You are You.” 💕

I could look at food all day 😩😍😋 I never took any of these with intentions of posting them but I realized I had accumulated a bunch and figured I show y’all what I eat as a vegan. I’m no cook but I’m pretty damn proud of these haha. There’s too many to describe what everything is/how it was made, like I said I didn’t intend on sharing these so I don’t remember how I made most of them lol 😝 I’ll try to answer questions in the comments but for the most part let’s just all come together and praise god for all that is food!!!!! #plantpowered #yummy

Not sponsored just wanna give a quick shoutout to some ride or die’s lately- my @whitewithstyle (use my code Alisonkit28 for $$ off!!) teeth whitener and my @100percentpure Aqua Boost Hydrating Mask 🙌🏼🙏🏻💕 I showed my sis a pic the other day of my teeth without editing them whiter (which I normally did) and she was as surprised as I was! No editing needed! I was pretty stoked about that and motivates me to whiten once-twice a week! I never whiten without a mask on (why not double task while you can?) and I find myself reaching for this one every time my skin needs a pick-me-up/feeling tight and dry. Skin feels like a baby’s buttocks after 😍😩 #whitewithstyle #100percentpure #justashoutout #notgettingpaid #ipromise #youcantrustme #orcanyou #hahajkyoucan #butcanyoureallythough #jkagainyoucan #hashtaglaughoutloud #thisishowhashtagsworkright
