Currently Craving: The Metallic Gladiator Sandal

Silver Metallic Gladiator Sandal Spring Summer 2013

Springtime is here! The sun is out, flowers are in bloom! The only thing that seems to be missing is a great pair of metallic gladiator sandals. Unlike most people, I wear gladiator sandals (usually gold) like its my job during the warmer months of Spring and Summer. For me, these jems are more like a wardrobe staple rather than a trendy item I'll no longer wear when I get bored of them (because I don't get bored of them). However, I've appeared to wear my old trusty gladiators to the ground and am now left with nothing to adorn my feet...

Leaning into It: Making the Switch from Leather to Faux

Vegan Fashion: Making the Switch from Leather to Faux Leather

In the past, I've never had a problem with wearing leather. I cherished my "real leather" handbag and fawned over the beautifully constructed "real leather" jackets and boots I saw in magazines or fashion blogs. Yet as I've recently set foot on my journey of "leaning into veganism" (thanks, Kathy Freston), the issue of wearing leather has become more and more problematic for me as both a vegetarian and animal lover.

Cacao Mint Chip Smoothie

Image Source: Stacey's Paleo Kitchen Blog

When it comes to deserts, nothing beats chocolate mint chip ice cream. That's what I thought, at least, until I found this vegan Mint Cacao Chip smoothie recipe (which I adapted from Cocoa Bliss Smoothie recipe from Whole Foods).

This Mint Cacao Chip smoothie is my favorite "go-to" recipe for when I have a sweet tooth. Better yet, this recipe is made of all natural and wholesome ingredients and is 100% vegan and gluten free.
