A Review of a Highly Vegan Material for Vegan Cuts and some info about the Material Known as Cork

Yay for me!

Today I received a package containing an item that the highly intriguing company Vegan Cuts asked me to review.

If you don’t know about Vegan Cuts, they are a great site. They  are a handpicked selection of cool vegan items that are all moderately to heavily discounted. Check them out! Very cool.

They kindly sent me a very fascinating item. A cork bag from the company CoolCorc.

First of all….. a question arises. Why is it that everybody likes cork?

Cork boards.

Wine cork collecting.

It is such a fun material to touch.

Am I right?

I found out from the website of coolcorc that it is also one of the most environmentally friendly materials in the world.

Unlike natural sponges, which are also so fun to touch, but are killed for their amazing texture….

Cork is the bark of the cork oak tree, and incredibly no cork trees were cut down or harmed in the making of these cork products. The bark is simply harvested from the outside of the tree, and the company says this harvesting, kind of like pruning I imagine, allows the cork tree to live an unusually long life for a cork oak tree of around 200 years. They never cut down a single tree. When cork trees die naturally, their website says they are used for the cultivation of edible mushrooms.

How nice.

This cork tree land that the company owns actually allows the company to preserve and protect a incredible forest sanctuary that houses many endangered species including Lynx,

the Golden Takin  (an animal I just learned about, probably the origin of the Greek Myth about the Golden Fleece, a winged golden ram)

and Golden Monkey.

On to the purse.

Well….. I love the fabric. It is so very smooth. Cork is great. It is smaller than I expected. Not really sure how I will wear it, but I will try to incorporate it one of these days into my attire.

In retrospect, I wish I had gotten the clutch. It looks very chic and magnifique. I like the minimalist design.

Well…to sum up….

I love what CoolCorc, this company, is doing.

I love entrepreneurs and these people are really doing a lot of good in the world…not only by putting out very unique and interesting products, but by inventing a sustainable way to create jobs for cork cutters in Asia, protecting an old if not ancient cork forest which houses endangered species, and making a stand for cool vegan products and vegan materials…and not cutting down a single tree in the process.

Vegan Cuts is offering a site wide discount for the next 3 days (till November 10th) of 10% off anything on their site. Enter the code


Thank you so much Vegan Cuts and CoolCorc for asking me to review your product. That was a lot of fun and is the culmination of a kind of blogg-ish dream I had of getting sent a free gift/product to review.

Amazing work, to both companies.

A Candy Pink Vegan Bag and the Style of a Dreamy Parisian Blogger

There is this blogger by the name of MakingMagique, well, her real name I believe is Haleigh.

Wow, her blog is incredible. Not only does she take amazing photography, but she seems to have an amazing life. She has an incredible apartment in Paris which she has remade and redecorated with beautiful things, an incredible wardrobe, awesome style, great photography skills, cool friends…it is so fun to check out her blog.

It makes me wish everything I owned was beautiful and awesome. A Dolce Vita, a Non Leather Life, if you will, of beautiful but cruelty free things. One day, I will have a company perhaps providing awesome non leather things so that we can all look as cool as this blogger.

She has very girly style and loves pastel pink and blue. She has this amazing pink bag that she carries all the time in her photos….of course it is leather, but I found a non leather look alike (sort of–well it reminded me of it) on modcloth in non leather and I thought I’d share some pics of her awesome style from her blog. However, I couldn’t pick just a few pics, and have included all of my favorites. Check out her blog–there are far more where that came from.

Here is the bag of the wonderful aforementioned blogger:

And here is my vegan lookalike I found for you:

Sort of?

Anyway, I tried to share a ton of pics of her inspiring style, but none of them seemed to show up on this blog. Therefore go to my other blog, where I posted them as well, to see many many pics of my favorite outfits of hers. You won’t be sorry you checked out these outfits. Or simply go straight to the source–her blog.

Also, if you want to, like this blog on Facebook because I have a fun thing I want to do that I can only do on facebook involving photos of ourselves and our animal inspirations, that I will be writing about in the next post.

Your thoughts? Hehe. <3
