Arbonne-Cruelty Free and Vegan?

Arbonne-Cruelty Free and Vegan?

I am always on the lookout for cruelty free and vegan personal care products. What does that mean exactly?

Well, it means that companies which produce these products:
1) do not test their products and the ingredients in their elixirs either themselves or by a third party, even when required by law.

It is not a long list, but it is an …

Frightening Fur Facts

Frightening Fur Facts

My parents gave me a black Chinese fur coat when I was about nineteen years old. It was a totally unexpected gift and I was extremely surprised and thrilled. It was a sleek, black, knee length, simple design with hidden  toggles. If I used nonhuman animal proverbs, I would say that I thought I was the cat’s meow when I was wearing it. I wore it everywhere, along with my black leather knee high boots and most likely, a leather …

Cruelty Free and Vegan Pedicures

Cruelty Free and Vegan Pedicures

NONHUMAN ANIMAL PRODUCTS IN OUR FOOD SUPPLY

 

Last week we took our little grandchildren on a day trip to Wishing Well Sanctuary in Bradford, Ontario. Our plan was to locate the Sanctuary and then take a little detour for lunch before going back for the tour. I could have, should have taken a picnic lunch , but I wanted to save my energy for the main event.

THE SECRETIONS OF NONHUMAN ANIMALS ARE THE CHEESE WE EAT AND MORE…!

THE SECRETIONS OF NONHUMAN ANIMALS ARE THE CHEESE WE EAT AND MORE…!

One of the best and most wonderful things (and there are plenty) my daughter has done for me, is to point me in the way of veganism. It has helped me to clarify things  in my life, to identify another purpose for my place on this planet,  to heal from emotional  injuries and to  improve my health.
