Viva La Vegan!

Viva La Vegan!

What do you do when you find yourself in Vegas staying at the Wynn?  You #eatalltheveganthings of course!  If you're  unfamiliar with why it is a little vegan mecca, the owner Steve Wynn became vegan in 2010 and added vegan options to all of the restaurants in the hotel.  And we're not just talking steamed broccoli on top of rice (which don't get me wrong, that can be delicious) but rather pasta, pizzas, dumplings, curries, crab cakes and so much more that it was impossible to try everything in one weekend.  But hey, we gave it a go, ate ourselves silly and took...

According to a recent Thrillist article, they named Santa Cruz as the hippiest city in California so naturally, I wanted to check it out because usually hippie=vegan food galore.  After what felt like a year of driving, we finally arrived in Santa Cruz...hungry and a little cranky.  Thanks to Happy Cow app...

The Animal Museum

After the recent grand opening of The Animal Museum in downtown Los Angeles, I found myself reminiscing about the night of the preview opening in October.  The Animal Museum is a one of a kind space that examines and raises awareness about our relationships with animals.   As soon as I found out tickets were available for the preview, I was immediately sold because a museum dedicated to animals + unlimited vegan hors d'oeuvres (you bet I had to Google how to spell that) + vegan booze (not unlimited but still...)= my kind of Saturday night.  I was also happy to read...

Back to Beauty: Vegan Cuts September Beauty Box Review

Although I love summer, I am also a sucker for fall and everything that goes along with it- the crisp air (it's finally getting crispy here in SoCal), pumpkin everything (insert #basic joke here) and all of the Halloween festivities...speaking of festivities, the September Vegan Cuts beauty box has you covered to keep you looking your beautiful self while picking apples or picking up the remote for a cozy night in! Luxie Beauty Brush ($16 value) This super soft blending brush is ideal for eye make-up application because of its smaller size.  The bristles are so fine (and can I mention...
