Natural Products Expo comes to the Westcoast

Had a blast at this year's Natural Expo West. Held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, the three level building and surrounding hotels were full of foot traffic. From manufacturers to exhibitors, bloggers, celebrities, Media, and healthful-minded individuals all looking and ready to promote the next big thing in natural, organic, cruelty-free and vegan treats, health and beauty, pet care, baby and household items.

What we eat or wear on our skin is so important to our every day being. You've already heard how eating healthy is better for you, especially when you want to lose a few pounds, right? But what if you start feeling ill or suffer severe ailments? Do you try eating healthier foods, then? 

Ever think back on how you lived your life prior, and which foods had odd ingredients you can't even pronounce? It can definitely be overwhelming, and even scary. It is for me, anyway. 
That's not to say I'm turning fully vegan or avoiding my chocolate cravings. My blog is called Shoes, Dogs and CHOCOLATE, after all. I did take note, however, of the overwhelming positivity that filled each showroom I stepped into. 

People just seemed happy overall, and it wasn't hard to understand why, when you were being offered sample upon sample of natural products and yummy eats to keep you hydrated and full during hours of walking. 

I know it was more than that, though. People were walking testimonies of how paying attention to your health and overall well-being, can really help you live a better life for years to come.

Until next year!
