where to find vegan shoes

The 2014 Holiday Vegan Gift Guide, Part 2


So I had some more ideas for holiday gifts for vegans. 10 more to be exact. I hope you find them helpful. Let me know what you think on Facebook or in the comments.

1. House plants

I saw this image about house plants that clean your air on pinterest and it made me crave a baby rubber tree for my apartment. How cool would it be to have all of these plants in your room. Anyway, you could pick up one of these at a nursery or order them online. Another great idea is to get someone a potted lemon tree. I bought one for my dad last year and it has grown so many lemons, even in snowy, cold Connecticut.

2. Wooden Bowel and Mezzaluna for chopped salads

Ever since I got the idea to buy a wooden bowl and chopper on amazon, I have eaten salad almost every night. I like the taste of chopped salads way better and it is a lot of fun to see how effortlessly the mezzaluna chops everything.  I don’t know what I would do without mine now. I think it would be a pretty cool gift.

3. Warrior Princess necklace

For some reason I never wear jewelry but I fell in love with this woman’s jewelry store SdeVDesigns when I saw it in a holiday market in NYC. She travels all around the world sourcing stones and beads from exotic locales and she has a great eye because all the colors work so well together.

I bought this necklace they call the Warrior Princess for myself and I love it.

4. My current favorite item from my cool vegan shoes pinterest board

I don’t make any money from my cool vegan shoes pinterest board, but I just thought I’d mention it again in case you are in need of a vegan gift since there are already 752 vegan items on there you can buy online (although some of the really old ones are probably sold out by now and shouldn’t count(but most are still available)). All you have to do is click on the image and it will take you to the place they’re selling it online. One of my favorite items on there now is this fairy tale like snow white/evil queen ish coat I found from fellow vegan blogger @fashionveggie.

asylum coat in prussian blue

I would feel as if I were being chased by wolves through a snowy Russian forest wearing this or maybe that I was a enchantress versed in the dark arts who communed with the wolves.

5. The Vegan Stoner Cookbook for New Vegans

I am not a stoner, but this vegan cookbook that I found in the book section of Urban Outfitters is surprisingly amazing. I wanted to buy it, but thought I shouldn’t because I am trying to do the whole High Carb Low Fat fruit based vegan thing. But if you know someone who cares more about eating amazing vegan food than being uber low fat, this recipe book would be perfection because the recipes look so good yet are so simple to make using only a couple of ingredients. If I knew anyone who had just gone vegan I would buy them this book for sure. Maybe I should have a copy on hand just in case…..

6. Salt Crystal Lamp

There is something so magical about these lamps with their warm pink glow. You see them in spas a lot and I’ve always loved them. You can find them for pretty cheap on amazon and in different shapes like a pyramid and a globe if you prefer. This one is the highest rated though and the one I think I would buy after much thought.

7. A dehydrator 


A dehydrator is a really cool thing to have for a person interested in raw veganism or health. You can make apple chips, kale chips, your own sundried tomatoes, dehydrated bananas, and these really awesome raw vegan cinnamon rolls which caused a panic/feeding frenzy at the Woodstock Fruit Festival.  I want one. 

8. Tickets to the Woodstock Fruit Festival in Hawaii

Although this would be a really extravagant gift, it would be an experience of a lifetime. I’m really excited for this event. Michael Arnstein, the founder of the festival, said he wanted to throw it so people can really experience what it’s like to live a fruitarian lifestyle in the tropics where it is meant to be lived. Anyone planning on going?

9. 3 Creamy Vegan Cheeses

Out of curiosity I am very interested to try these vegan cheeses made by this famous vegan cheese maker. I think this would be an awesome gift. Classic double cream chive? Imagine how good that tastes!

10. 7 hot dates sampler

7 Hot Dates is an organic date farm in California that grows many cool varieties of dates that are way fresher and better tasting than dates you can get at a supermarket. You can get a sampler that will last you months. The dates taste like caramel candies and everyone loves them (I made the mistake of leaving my sampler on the counter and my favorite section was picked clean in a day).

Well that’s 10. Also check out my first Holiday Vegan Gift Guide for 2014 if you missed it. And let me know if you have any other good gift ideas. Hope you all have a wonderful day.


Top 10 Cool Vegan Shoes for Women for Fall 2014


Today I thought I would do a fashion post. I have been adding a ton of very cool vegan shoes to my pinterest page, and if you or anyone else you know is in need of vegan shoes, check it out. But on this post I thought I would pick my favorites as of right now from my pinterest page, in my opinion.

Ok, here goes.

1. I"m in love with the

These shoes from good guys don’t wear leather are awesome. They have je ne sais quoi. Yes, I have fallen into the “why are french people cooler than us trap”.

2. awesome pic of these

No, these shoes from good guys are awesome. They take the #2 spot. These are in navy blue, but they come in red too. Very 70s which was allegedly the coolest decade, cause all the good films come from then I hear. But these would be perfect to wear with anything and you would never look like you are trying to hard, just being, effortlessly cool.

3. women should be fear

I think these shoes are really cool. Tough. Evil. Badass. As I tried to write on Pinterest, I once read an Alexander McQueen quote that was about how when he was younger he was a child of a single mother. He watched her be in abusive relationships. So he said he wanted women to dress in a way that commanded respect. He was like, people should respect women and be scared of them almost. A very sweet but bittersweet sentiment. He respected women so much he wanted men to fear them and bow down in awe. I was in awe when I read a book about his clothes that I bought in anthropoligie. He was a true artist.

4. reminds me of someth

I really like these shoes. They are so girlie and elegant. They reminds me of something an always stylish grandmother would wear. With a pedicure of course. There is something old fashioned about them, like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. Feminine and life of the cocktail party. <3

5. These vegan shoes re

I love that these shoes from vegan company Cri de Coeur were inspired by Gustav Klimt. Klimt is so cool.

Can’t you just imagine her wearing these shoes?

6. 60398c091baa94b6158e8e39a983c3f0

These boots from H&M are a very cool length. I like them a lot. What can I say about these babies. They’re just cool, are they not?

7. d5294d52f2243ff6cb2a6c6e58b1742c

I’m sorry, I am just a big fan of these shoes. They remind me of something Kanye would tell Kim she couldn’t wear. But she would wear them anyway and then they would get in a fight about it. They’re so feminine and cool. Embrace the fact that if you are a girl you can wear stuff like this, and have fun.


In the same vein, I really love these. I once saw a girl wearing a short dress with boots like this, but maybe they were flat thigh high boots which would be a bit better probably, but it looked so amazing I never forgot it. I am going to get these.

9. a24678e46d580771142810d2dec2a67f

These vans. I have them in faded black. They are just so cool, they go with everything. I don’t know what I’d do without them. They are the MVP in my wardrobe really. I confirmed with vans these are vegan, so no fear about that.

10. 052dc09bcf68e42c5dd82299536ab524

I really like these shoes. I could see them in an old guess or levis ad, with like a girl stranded in Texas wearing these and a long jean skirt.


Ok you can find these all on my pinterest board and there are a ton of other cool vegan shoes on there as well that I also really like, so check it out and if you like it, please share with anyone you think could use it. I don’t make money off of it, I just really think its a great resource and wish more people knew about it. 

Also let me know if you enjoyed this kind of fashion-y post, like I used to do back in the day.
