lovely little earth

A little over 4 years ago I made the switch to Vegetarianism and it quickly became a change in lifestyle. I found myself choosing more organic, green, vegan, and eco-conscious foods, beauty products, and even clothing. I decided to put together a list of my favorite things that are organic, vegan, or eco-friendly in celebration of one of my favorite days of the year, 

What to Use
This "Yes to" line started popping up in every magazine I would open. After seeing it continuously I decided to start trying some of the products. Made with organic fruit and all natural ingredients, these are my two favorites.

What to Give
I stumbled upon Allison's Gourmet website and have been dying to order some of her lovely little vegan confections!(I have my taste buds set on the vanilla chai fudge) Everything from cinnamon snicker-doodles to peppermint patties. You can send gourmet samplers or even vegan cookie, fudge, or brownie of the month subscriptions to your loved ones!

What to Wear
I have followed Andrea Bonelli's eco-friendly work for over a year now. I am completely obsessed with every piece she designs. (especially this one) She hand makes each of her pieces using recycled and ethically mined Diamonds and Gems. What more could a girl ask for?

Quite enamored with this lovely vegan handbag from LuLu's.

What to Make
Who doesn't like Smore's? They make you feel like a kid again. So when I saw this Vegan Smore's Bark recipe from Krystina over on "Organically MeI couldn't wait to try it!

What to Read

The Green Book: The Everyday Guide to Saving the Planet One Simple Step at a Time. I read this book and loved how incredibly simple it made "going green". Easy solutions that anyone and everyone can do. Pick up this book for Earth Day!
