The Hungry Elephant

With the mission to spread awareness and love to animals and the earth, The Hungry Elephant dedicates a portion of its proceeds to different welfare organizations, sanctuaries, and foundations they believe in. All charms and bracelets are nickel-free and lead-free, packaging supplies are eco-friendly. Each item is hand assembled in Southern California with love.

This goes without saying how lovely, fashionable and thoughtful The Hungry Elephant bracelets are. Each one is 14 ct gold plated which makes it sturdy yet at the same time it has a delicate rich look.

The Hungry Elephant features its “V” bracelets that make a fun fashion accessory for yourself or any vegan or vegetarian in your life. Their animal charm bracelets really stand out as the perfect universal gift for all ages. Besides how nice these bracelets are, a huge selling point for me is that their bracelets are perfect for anyone with a super small wrist such as myself.



LAVISHY Boutique opened its doors in 2007. Today, they have one store in Toronto and online providing vegan accessories to customers around the world.

Wallet: If you are looking for a new vegan wallet or bag than Lavishly is perfect for you. This affordable line is spot on when it comes to creating their luxurious vegan leather. We love how well made and roomy their wrist wallets are making them the perfect for a night out or on the days you don’t feel like carrying a purse. The wallet is fashionable enough to take to a concert or nice dinner.

We found the bag featured in this article to be a bit small and thinner/narrower than we thought it would be, having said that it is made very well, lined nicely and would be the perfect choice as a gift. The must unexpected thing that we noticed is people seemed take notice in a very positive way when we used the Lavishy bag and were familiar with the brand.



Founded in 1994 this socially conscious company strives to create a product that looks good, feels good and is good for the skin. As a result they have become one of most transparent cosmetic companies when it comes to the ingredients in their products. They have an easy to navigate website that lets customers view rather quickly details about each product they might be interested in and whether it is vegan or has gluten. All of Jane irdedale products are certified cruelty-free by PETA and Leaping Bunny.

Who doesn’t love chocolate??? So when I saw this pallet that looks like a chocolate bar I couldn’t wait to try it. What’s not to love? The colors are compliment for any skin tone and will look good by themselves or layered on top of your favorite lipstick for a pop of color. They go on smooth and are not sticky or greasy. It is also long lasting. It is worth mentioning that the company uses natural ingredients to achieve the color and intended effect, the red which is chilly pepper, although a gorgeous shade it also provides quite a spicy kick( which goes away after a few seconds) which is intended to plump up lips. My only regret is that this pallet is almost used up:-(
