Let's help end the largest and most
pervasive form of animal abuse
remaining in America - factory farming.
It's not fun to think about,
but it's important to understand that factory farms
dominate food production in our country today.
These horrific mega factories
employ systematically abusive practices
that maximize agribusiness profits
at the expense of
not to mention
and even our health.
It's frustrating. But here's an easy way to
help do something to stop it.
urges the administration to support policy and legislation
from factory farming’s harmful effects.

I adore Kathy Freston.
She is a New York Times best-selling author
with a concentration on healthy living
and conscious eating.
She is beautiful inside and out
and has become an inspiration to me.
She just started The Daily Lean, a
daily bite-size nugget of helpful
information for all of you out there
trying to live healthier, more
I love the concept of "leaning into" change.
Nothing harsh. No judgment.
Just a gentle focus on improving.
Gotta love that!

I just saw these shoes on Beyond Skin and thought
they were so fun!
I can imagine wearing them with so many things...
white skinny jeans and a white shirt
white skinny jeans and a bright green top
dark denim skinny jeans and a white top
dark denim wide leg jeans and a white tank
I could go on...
I always have fun imagining new outfits.
You can do so much with
the basics and a
fun pair of shoes.
The good news is that
animals never have to
suffer to satisfy your
fashion fix - there
are so many non-leather
options out there now!

Dying eggs is a tradition many of us grew up with at Easter.
I remember loving it as a kid. It was a fun way to
let some creative energy fly!
The problem today as that most eggs come from hens living in
unnatural (best) or inhumane (worst) conditions. Because of
poor regulations even those eggs marked "cage free", "natural",
and "organic" are most likely not eggs from healthy, happy hens.
Who wants to celebrate Easter by perpetuating cruelty to animals?
Ew. Not me. And I'm guessing not you either.
So - here's a great alternative - EggNots - a dyeable ceramic egg!
What an amazing idea!
They look and feel just like a real egg, but they are
non-perishable and vegan/eco-friendly.
Ready to dye any color your creative little heart desires.
Easter bunny approved!
