Vegan Rose Quartz Necklaces by Mystical Makings

When Dave from Mystical Makings contacted me a few weeks ago about reviewing his new line of Vegan Rose Quartz Necklaces, I had to stop and admire these beauties for a while before I responded to him. I thought these necklaces were absolutely stunning. I love accessories with... Read More

Raaka Virgin Chocolate Review

While we were at the Winter Village in NYC (read our review here), we stopped at Raaka Chocolate to try some of their samples. Lydia knew about the company and immediately recognized them when she saw their stand. They’re an artesanal shop, 100% vegan, with a dedicated facility so there’s no cross-contamination. Aren’t we glad we did. Their stuff is amazing. They had a number of samples available, so we tried a few different flavors, but what really knocked... Read More

Sweet Designs Chocolatier – Review

Looks yummy, right? “Mmmm, chocolate!” was the first thing I thought when I received the sample package from Sweet Designs Chocolatier to review. The company isn’t vegan, they also make milk chocolate, but they have a nice selection of certified organic, vegan and gluten-free 70% dark chocolate barks and an assortment box—with truffles and other goodies! Who doesn’t love good chocolate? And it says “vegan” right on their package and... Read More

Ellovi Body Butter Review

This winter was brutal here in PA. It was cold, it was dry, it got colder and it got drier. My skin was drier than it’s ever been, for a little while at least. The lovelies at Ellovi were kind enough to send me a sample of their amazing body butter to try out. This gem of a butter saved my skin from chapping, cracking and flaking this winter. Ellovi body butter is made with 6 ingredients—macadamia nut, coconut, marula nut, hemp seed, shea and non GMO cornstarch—,... Read More

Nurture My Body Giveaway

I’m always on the lookout for a good facial moisturizer for different times of the year, even though I already have a few favorites. My skin is slightly on the dry side so I need a heavy duty one in the colder months and a medium weight one from spring to the beginning of fall. Spring is finally around the corner (it just can’t get here quick enough in PA) and I’m already set. Nurture My Body’s organic Energizing Moisture Cream* “A revitalizing... Read More

Petit Vour Box Review & Giveaway

Vegan snack and cosmetic gift/subscription boxes abound nowadays and I’m glad for it. They’re all different in their own way, catering to different needs and niches, but most important of all, catering to anyone looking for animal-free and cruelty-free products. I’ve reviewed other vegan boxes here on the blog and I’m so glad I got the chance to review Petit Vour, as well. Petit Vour is a monthly delivery of cruelty-free beauty products, hand-picked... Read More

Better Than Vegan Cookbook Giveaway

What could be Better Than Vegan* you may ask. Chef Del Sroufe’s answer would be, being a healthy vegan. When Chef Del became vegan, he didn’t concern himself with what types of food he was eating, as long as they were 100% plant-based. But as the years went by and he started getting heavier and heavier, reaching 475 pounds, it was obvious to him that he needed to make a big change in his life. He started eating a low-fat vegan diet, made with lots fresh fruit... Read More
