Muse: Sonia Delaunay

I am truly inspired by Art Deco artist & designer Sonia Delaunay's 70 year span of work. I hope to one day be as talented & prolific of a textile designer as she was. If you watch this video below you will surely understand why I and many many other people admire her unique talent & strong spirit so.

Feeling A Little Mad Men

A few weeks ago I purchased a pair of sweet sweet gold & black earrings from Adam Rabbit. Whenever I wear these stunners at work and have to remove them to talk on the phone I feel like a character from Mad Men. Which is really not a bad thing at all....

The Perfect Commuter Bag

A few months ago I was lucky enough to score the amazing vegan bag picture below from Vegan Cuts. This lush vintage inspired bag which is called The Harlow is from an equally amazing vegan handbag line called Namaste. Over the last 5 or 6 months that I've had this bag I've taken it on many of if not all of my trips to visit my parents in Pickering, which is a suburb just outside Toronto. Which takes me about 40 minutes reach by train. I love taking this bag with my on these short tips because it fits exactly the right amount of stuff I need for a weekend spent in the home I grew up in. I also feel confident to predict that The Harlow is thee best bag for mini weekends trips away with your friends, family or sweat heart. You can currently get your hands on what I like to call the perfect commuter bag over at Vegan Cuts for a steal! And while you happen to be on Vegan Cuts you should make sure to checkout the plethora of other amazing deals they have (including sweet deals on other bags from Namaste!).

Vegans Just Want To Have Fun

Wow two posts in one day uh-mazing I know! I can't help but share this awesome vegan rap video featuring two of my fav peeps Kristen Lajeunesse from Will Travel For Vegan Food & Melisser Elliott from Cruelty Free Face. Love love love these ladies, this video and all the other awesome vegan peeps that made it look like so much fun! Rap on!

I'm Back and Showing A Little Love

It's been almost a year since my last post (yikes!). Last year in general was a rough one for me on the personal front, however I won't get into it with this post. You'll have to come back with baited breath in the near future to hear all about it. Instead I've decided to make my first post back a sweet & short one. One that shows support to a lovely friend of mine, Laura Collins. Laura is trying to grow her amazing ethical, eco friendly and cruelty free handbag line Pansy Maiden and she could use our help. Her business has grown to the point where she needs to hire some employees in order for her to meet the supply & demand of her product (amazing Laura!). Also when it comes down to it the world needs more business's like Laura's so if you are interested in supporting people rather then the corporate machine then head on over to her Indie Go Go page to donate. If this post has not convinced you to help (sorry I'm a bit rusty with my use of charming word magic) then check out the video below because I'm sure you will be charmed by Laura's dedication to her craft and it will have you click click clicking your way on over to her page to give her a much needed and a much appreciated donation :).
