Victoria’s Secret is No Longer Cruelty Free

Victoria's Secret is No Longer Cruelty Free

Recently, I discovered that retail giant Victoria’s Secret is no longer a cruelty free brand. They have an expanding beauty line that includes perfume, lotion, hair care, skin care, and cosmetics. For many years the brand has been cruelty free.

As readers of Logical Harmony know, I check back frequently with brands on a regular basis. On a recent check with Victoria’s Secret they answered my usual questions with no issue and checked out as being cruelty free. Logical Harmony reader Eliana however, received a different response than I had and brought this to my attention. Inconsistent responses from brands always put me on edge, and this prompted me to follow up with the brand quickly.

How to Make Skinny Raspberry Lemonade

How to Make Skinny Raspberry Lemonade

I’ve been drinking a lot of fruit flavored water lately. Then one of my Instagram friends posted a picture of her flavored water which was made with sparkling water. Somehow, it looked so much more refreshing and delicious than mine. While you can easily make skinny raspberry lemonade with regular flat water, I recommend using sparkling water if you can.

What you will need to make Skinny Raspberry Lemonade:

  • 24 ounces sparkling or still water
  • 1 lemon, washed – you will juice 1/2 of the lemon and slice the other 1/2
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 2 teaspoons stevia (optional)

 

How to Make Skinny Raspberry Lemonade

How to make Skinny Raspberry Lemonade:

  1. In a pitcher or large jar, add in the frozen raspberries. You can use fresh if you like, but I like to use frozen raspberries for two reasons. First, it keeps the drink cold. Second, you can then make it year round!
  2. Add in the from 1/2 lemon 24 ounces of water.
  3. Add stevia to taste, if desired. I rarely add this as I find the raspberries are often sweet enough on their own. However, for those who want a sweeter drink, stevia is the way to go.
  4. Garnish by adding in the lemon slices.

I love that this skinny raspberry lemonade gives you a health way to hydrate. It’s so refreshing on hot days and helps gives a spring and summer feel to cool evenings.
