[Philadelphia - Center City] Goldie - Vegan Milkshake - Banana Tehina Shake

Goldie is a cafe in Philadelphia with a ton of vegan and vegetarian options.

As I was looking for restaurants around our hotel, I was so excited to find that there were vegan milkshake options readily available because I am somewhat sensitive to milk and I wanted a refreshing treat while on vacation.

I decided to go for the banana tehina shake since that was the most raved about flavor.

It was a very interesting treat. I would say that it is VERY thick, especially since real bananas are used.

It was not very sweet, which I appreciate, but it doesn't taste like a non-vegan shake would taste.

Maybe it's because all the components are super natural, but it was a little more acidic than milkshakes are. Please let me know if this is normal for vegan shakes. I think this may have been my first vegan shake I've eaten in my life.

Since the shake was so thick, I could eat only about half of it. So, it was definitely enough to share if you're not too weirded out about sharing a shake.

This tehina shake could definitely be a meal replacement.

My favorite part of the shake were the crumbles on the top.

I kind of wish maybe I would have gone with my gut and gotten the coffee or the mint chocolate flavor (minus the chocolate), so maybe next time I go to Philadelphia, I should try one of those other flavors.

With everything being said, if you're very sensitive to lactose or are vegan, I would say this is a good option for you. You should totally put it on your list because it's satisfying as a milkshake - it's cool and refreshing, but still tastes rich and like a treat and the texture is right.

But, if you're interested in trying it just because it's famous, I would probably recommend skipping it. There are plenty of milkshakes available for you.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
