Winter Luxuries to keep your Home Cozy & Cruelty-Free this Season

Okay so I almost had a breakdown while Christmas shopping for people last night.

How to Shop Black Friday & Cyber Monday the Cruelty-free, Eco-friendly Way!

This year I'm actually EXCITED for Black Friday! I realized that I don't need to risk my life in a possible stampede all for the sake of buying products made of unsustainable materials that were most likely made in sweatshops by people earning less than a living wage for their labor. Instead, I can sit back, [...]
