Tell us a little bit about your blog and why it’s unique.
I started my blog when I first went vegan. At that time, I noticed that most vegan blogs were all about plant-based recipes, but there was nothing out there for vegan and cruelty-free fashion and beauty. Basically, I wanted my blog to be one stop for people who wanted to embrace a vegan lifestyle in a chic and aesthetic way. Which is how my tagline was born- “Chic advice for the vegan life.”
Why is the vegan lifestyle important to you?
Being vegan is important to me because of my deep love and respect for animals. I also love that being vegan is environmentally friendly, and it’s so important that we all do our part to fight climate change.
Why is it important for you to share your experiences and insights through your blog?
One of the reasons I love sharing my lifestyle on my blog is to break the typical stigma that comes along with being vegan. I want to show others that a kind a cruelty-free lifestyle is not only attainable, but it can be done in a fashionable way.
How do you stay motivated to keep doing what you’re doing?
I always remember my why and my passion to turn this lifestyle that I love into my full-time job. I love knowing that I can impact people’s and animals’ lives just by sharing my favourite cruelty-free and vegan beauty products or a delicious plant-based recipe.
Where do you find inspiration for new ideas and directions?
A lot of times I look at current trends and think of ways to make them vegan and cruelty free. My inspiration also comes from daily life. I love hosting friends for drinks and food and, of course, I’m a total make-up junkie!
Where do you see yourself and your blog in 3 years?
In 3 years, I see myself working as a content creator full time and continuing to inspire people to make more kind choices!
