What a child sees | a heartwarming video about children & animals

I watched this heartwarming, hope-inducing video yesterday and just had to share with all of you. Two minutes I wish the whole world could see. These children are so compassionate, it really filled my heart and the video, by Compassion Over Killing was so well made!






Why I drink warm lemon water every single day

This post has been a long time coming and I actually feel bad for not sharing it as soon as I discovered the awesome benefits I get from doing this! Almost every single day for the last few years, I’ve started my morning with a big ol’ cup of warm lemon water. Ever since I […]






Wishing all of you a peaceful winter and a merry Christmas ❤

I’ve been meaning to share this beautiful “Peaceful Winter” Christmas card illustration by Katharina Rot Illustration with all of you for a while now… and what better time than right now? :) Katharina Rot is a vegan illustrator and animal rights activist from Hamburg, Germany. She illustrates images with messages of love and protecting animals. […]






The real price of dairy

This short video is so powerful. I couldn’t watch this and not share. How we allow this to happen, all the time, I don’t understand. How this is the norm… I can’t understand. Actually, this is by no means the worst of the dairy industry. Humans are the only species that drink milk past infancy […]






Music with heart: an interview with Emaline Delapaix & free downloads!

She is a Berlin based, Australian, singer-songwriter with a soothing, beautiful voice and an equally beautiful conscience. Emaline suffered with depression until she became a full-time musician and vegan a few years ago. She loves animals and promotes veganism through […]






Life as a vegan

Yesterday marked two years of my being vegan! I knew it was coming up, but I didn’t realize what day it was until I checked my calendar today. I should have been paying better attention because then maybe I would have celebrated in some way by making a vegan cake or something equally delicious. Instead […]






Awaken your Food Sense

When it comes to food, the internet is one of my favorite tools. Yes, cookbooks are amazing, but sometimes you can’t find a recipe to fit your mood, taste, or time at that very moment. In comes the internet. Look up a combo of anything and you’re sure to find something just right. Julie has […]






Backpacks, rucksacks, whatever you call them… I love these!

With the possibility of school coming up for me very soon (looks like I may be in England as early as the 17th of September!), I’ve got backpacks on my mind. And not just any ol’ backpacks, these backpacks! I have a trusty Jansport backpack that I’ve had since middle school (I said it was […]






My favorite veggie burger

I’ve had my fair share of veggie burgers: the store bought and homemade kind. I can’t remember not liking any of the veggie burgers I’ve made, but many of them fell apart in the making, were too dry, or took forever to make. Not these! My dad even likes these (he asked for seconds!) and […]






Four Leaf Clover at The Eclectic Life

I was so pleased to be asked by Vivien of The Eclectic Life to be part of a summer series on her blog. One question was “what is your must-have pair of shoes for the summer?” and, honestly, I had trouble choosing. I was going to share a photo of me wearing a pair of […]
