Vegan Style Leather Jacket

Vegan Style: Leather Jacket

Hi guys :)

I love writing posts about my fashion finds on here! This is one that I was particularly over the moon about. As usual, all my luck with vegan finds are in Marshalls/TJ Maxx/Target. This vegan leather jacket caught my eye in TJ Maxx immediately (before I even saw the clearly marked tag). Once I did, you can only imagine my face. It went straight into the cart.

Because I mean… it was $30.

Disney World Honeymoon

Disney Honeymoon Plans + Tips

HI! This post is probably going to be long and consist of tons of yelling and excessive [!!!] because it’s all about our dreamy honeymoon in DISNEY! Disney, yes. I think I’ve said it before on here… but yes we are going to Disney because we are literally 2 big kids. It doesn’t matter if we go every year… there is just no place we’d rather be or celebrate the start of our marriage than the most magical place on Earth. Rollercoasters, delicious vegan food, fireworks, shows, shopping, pool, ahhhh. It’s everything. We’re also doing Universal for 2 days, AKA THE WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER! Eeeeeee! I haven’t been to Universal in at least a decade, so you can imagine my excitement.

I thought it would be fun to share some of our plans (I am quite a planner – down to pool time) and some of what I’m packing. Just a little peak into my travel bag and life ;)

Warning: really long post ahead.

Vegan Style: Fall Bag

Vegan Style: Fall Bag

Hi friends! I’m excited to share another vegan find with you all – I grabbed it about a month ago, but have finally got around to writing this. Well, to be honest… I am writing this a week in advance to make sure I am covered before the big wedding weekend (by now, I’ll be married… EEK!)

I love this bag sooo much, and it is the same brand as the summer bag I posted about a couple months back. Safe to say, I love the brand EMPERIA. It’s durable, soft, and this color in particular really stole my heart the minute I saw it. I think they call it “camel?” I like to call it caramel – this caramel color is my all-time favorite. It’s warm for autumn, and it goes well with everything. Guess how much it costs?

My Cruelty-Free Make-Up Routine

My Kind + Cruelty-Free Make-Up Routine

Hi, kind friends :)

Over the last few years, I have replaced my entire beauty drawer with cruelty-free products. It’s a much kinder way to shop. We’ve explained what cruelty-free means in the past, but just to refresh: cruelty-free means that the product has not been tested on animals. Animal-testing is an eye-opening industry, and I encourage you to take a second and educate yourself on these inhumane practices. You won’t like what you find, but that is why you need to look.

So, without getting too into the ethics of it, I wanted to share my morning beauty routine with you guys. A lot of you wonder if it is expensive to shop cruelty-free, and that answer is absolutely not. I buy most of these products at Target, to be honest. Even the more expensive products are of great quality and last almost up to a year. I promise, it is very affordable.

Vegan Summer Bag Emperia

Vegan Style: Summer Bag

hi guys!

I am super excited to write this post, because you can imagine how excited I was to spot a clearly-marked vegan handbag at Marshalls. I actually could not believe it. A discount store such as Marshalls carrying a vegan handbag is a huge feat, in my opinion. It just goes to show that the market demands more options, and the more people demand, the more people will become aware. It’s a beautiful thing (much like this bag).

Vegan for Animals

Why I’m Vegan for the Animals

Hi guys. Lately, I’ve been feeling like I should write a detailed post about why I chose a vegan diet. I get this question a lot, especially when someone finds out for the first time. I’ll be honest – it never feels great when someone asks “why?” in a weird, defensive tone. Sometimes, I’ll laugh it off and try to get off the subject quickly. If you catch me on an off day, I might be a little more blunt about it, or sound defensive myself. But I get it – people just want to know why I would stop eating certain products, and they may assume I am depriving myself (not at all, by the way).

I’d like to share my story here and hope that anyone reading this sees my choice in new light, and understands where I am coming from. People eat vegan for a variety of different reasons, but this is mine.

Read at your own discretion – I talk about this pretty candidly.

Retro DIY Style

Style: Retro Inspiration

When it comes to style posts, I usually say, “I’ll pass.” Who cares if I can get a celebrity lookalike dress for the bargain price of $326, when the actress paid 20x that? If you’re like me, that figure is more in the “monthly grocery” and less in the “weekly fashion allowance” budget. Ain’t no shame in that, sister!

But today I’m talking about using what you’ve already got to create some classic, vintage looks. I drew inspiration from some pretty timeless ladies who you might think of as fancy with a capital F (that). They sure could be, but when they channeled their casual sides, their looks were pretty freaking simple. Here, I’ll show you… Continue reading
