Vegan Products I Swear By – Lush Shampoo

Over the past year or so, I’ve been trying to transition from a mindless consumer to a thoughtful one – I want to know where things come from, how they were made, what impacts their companies have. It’s so important to me that no animals suffered so I can have my products.

This week, I’ll tell you about my shampoo, which I get from Lush (have I mentioned how much I love Lush? SO much.)

Vegan spots – Cafe My House

The other day, Ian and I stopped by Cafe My House for Breakfast – it turned out to be a lovely little place!

The restaurant is located in Hintonburg, and their menu is all vegan. You can either go for brunch (which is what we did) from 10:30 to 2:30 on weekends, or you can stop by for dinner from 5:30pm to 10:30.

The ambiance is very cozy, which was nice for a hungover Saturday morning (sorry mom).

Portugal – The Pictures; Coimbra & Obidos

Portugal was a big trip, so I’ve decided to split up the posts into a few: this one will focus on our first stop – Coimbra, with Obidos en route! Coming soon: the informative post about these two lovely areas!

The pictures from Obidos, a charming little town surrounded by castle walls.
