The main thing you should know about me: I'm a huge animal lover! Quite simply, the older I get and the longer I've been vegan, the more I appreciate how beautiful other species are. And while most of us love watching cute viral videos they're featured in, how many are truly connecting those beings with the ones on their plates?
Well, I believe the days of sacrificing animal lives for our eating habits are over. But veganism isn't just about food either. Since I also love fashion, beauty, décor, and dining out as much as (or probably more than) the next gal, I have learned a lot about living a completely vegan lifestyle—and I'm thrilled to highlight all of the wonderful substitutions I can find for meat, eggs, dairy, fur, leather, suede, down, wool, cashmere, mohair, angora, silk, skins, bones, and animal testing.
It may require a little extra effort in your day to day life, but you don't need to forego your sense of style or taste while living vegan. In fact, it is super chic (and delicious) to be compassionate! Truth be told, even more than my appreciation for clothes and food, I love visiting animal sanctuaries, snuggling with my dog, and making new furry friends (even if they're quick relationships on the sidewalk).
And that's why I started In Your Vegan Style! Based in Toronto, I am proud to profile local, national and global businesses (including many non-vegan companies that are getting on board by offering substantial vegan-friendly options). I hope this blog will help you make cruelty-free choices with greater ease—whether you're vegan yet or not.
Peace, love & animals,
