Hi, thanks for checking out my blog! As a staunch vegan for the last 15 years, I started this blog with one goal in mind, to clarify for those curious enough, what it means to be vegan. While the whole idea of veganism has gained popularity in the mainstream, people still ask me what does being vegan exactly mean? Some thinking it only pertains to diet and not understanding why I avoid certain fashion, products and entertainment. With varying degrees of commitment to the lifestyle, I hope to share some insights based on my personal experiences. From where to eat and shop, to what beauty products are vegan friendly as well as tips for travel… the list can go on. Along the way I hope to dispel some of the myths behind it, as in, we aren’t all granola-eating hippies! We love good food, enjoy current fashion trends and enjoy cruising the make-up aisles, all while making a commitment to stop the exploitation of our fury friends. As Darwin once said, “There is no fundamental difference between man and animals in their ability to feel pleasure and pain, happiness, and misery.” Happy reading!
