meet sandra campillo

Hello Beautiful! Welcome to my site. My name is Sandra Campillo – a lifestyle entrepreneur living in Charlotte, NC with a Netherland Dwarf bunny named “Pooper” who may make his appearance from time to time! (We had to lay Pooper to rest on August 8, 2020 – it was the hardest thing we had to do😢)

Many may know me as Raw & Alive – a journey and movement I began in 2015 which quickly became solely about food. It’s what I had allowed it to become and not at all why I had started it to begin with. So, I brought it to an end in 2018.

I had to break away so I can find my way. 

What I learned is that yes, it begins with food but it doesn’t end there. It’s an evolution, a healing journey and life transformation of the mind, body and spirit.  

You see, when you care enough about what you fuel your body with, you begin to care about what you fuel your mind and spirit with – laying the foundation and then the building blocks to creating a healthier, happier, more peaceful and abundant life.

Living raw, vegan and plant-based is a lifestyle, not just a diet. It’s an awakening of the senses, self-discovery and reconnection – not only with ourselves, but with nature, the animals and our planet.

Ultimately, leading to life transformation – one that is fueled by whole food nutrition, love and compassion.

I’m here to inspire you to live holistically and cruelty-free for your life, the animals, and our planet. My intention is to help you do this through every blog post and video I share.

If you want to know a little more about me, you can find 25 random facts about me here. You can also read about my journey in the last ten years here.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy exploring! (Soon to be transitioned to A Wanderlust Journey – The new website is under construction and will be geared toward vegan, eco, luxury travel and lifestyle)

Cheers to YOU and living your best life!

frequently asked questions


I was born in New Jersey but grew up in South Florida. Still have friends and family down there so it’s a great excuse to go back and visit!

I moved to the Lake Norman area, 25 minutes north of Charlotte, in 2006 and have been here since. I’m an outdoorsy kinda girl so I love that I have access to all kinds of outdoor adventures – the mountains, beaches and everything in between!

Right now, I am simply doing what I love and loving what I do – inspiring and teaching others how to design and live their best life – mind, body and spirit. I believe we all have the powerful ability to create a life we love. I can share ideas and inspiration but It’s up to you to make it happen!


It’s the daily practice of mindfulness, conscious living and the raw vegan lifestyle!

I use a bentonite clay mask 1-2 times a week and use cruelty-free products on my skin without the harsh and toxic chemicals most beauty products are made with.  

Right now, I do not have a gym membership so I use my apartment gym which comes equipped with everything I need to get workouts in including a Peloton and kickboxing bag. I change up my workouts for variation to keep from getting bored and so my body doesn’t get used to the same workout routine which often results in plateauing. I love the high-intensity type workouts so I can sweat more. Gotta sweat out those toxins!


The vision I have for my life and what I want my life to look like. I’m hungry, passionate and on fire. With that, I know that there is nothing I can’t do and won’t do. It’s what makes me unstoppable!

Absolutely not! I was born a risk taker and although I do have fears just like we all do, the one thing I do not do is let my fear control me. I keep my faith strong and know that God has my back in all that I set out to do and achieve. I also remind myself each day that everything always works out… because it does! 😉

I stay focused on my vision and what I expect my life to look like while keeping a strong mind and maintaining a healthy, non-toxic environment inside me and in my surroundings. I do what I love and enjoy despite what anyone else thinks or says. Doing that, makes it easy to say no to anything that could potentially set me back and yes to all that allows me to shift and grow forward.
