Do you know who made your clothes?

In the past, I was a big fan of fast fashion and enjoyed my regular shopping trips with friends. Later on I even moved close to one of the biggest shopping streets in London (although that was not the reason why I moved to the area)! You can only imagine how heartbroken I was when I slowly started coming across more and more information that showed just how unethical and anything but sustainable fast fashion was.

Vegan Thanksgiving Ideas

Oh, what beautiful animals turkeys are. They are naturally curious, always checking out new sights and enjoy greeting visitors. People who care for them at sanctuaries even call them natural detectives. They are more than just food that people eat during specific time of the year. There is someone looking back when you look into their beautiful eyes and they deserve to be here just like you and I do. Did you know that their natural lifespan is up to 10 years, but they are killed when they are only 5 months old, if they live on factory farms? Read more about these beautiful creatures in PETA's article The Hidden Life Of Turkeys.

Why I Went Vegan

There are plenty of reasons why I decided to go vegan almost 3 years ago. Before that I was a vegetarian (for ethical reasons) for around 10 years, but it never occurred to me just how cruel the dairy and egg industries were. And then I stumbled upon this video/speech by Gary and it changed my life forever. For the better. Please watch and share with other people, it is important. Sit back, get a vegan snack and get your eyes and ears ready!

Where Does Leather Come From (powerful & non-graphic message)

This is such a good and an eye-opening video! I absolutely LOVE it when PETA UK spreads an important message without graphic content. I know, many people still need to see the reality, but personally I cannot handle seeing all those heartbreaking footages and images. I simply loose it and tears follow :/ This puts me in a state of “I just don't wanna deal with anything today, because everything is horrible.” This attitude does no good to anyone, specially not to the animals whose suffering I have just witnessed. That being said, I love the powerful messages presented in an informative yet not highly disturbing way. For this video titled Labels, Peta UK did just that.
Please watch the video bellow and share it with many, many people. We have things to change around here :)

p.s. appropriate for kids as well! :)

Here is to new beginnings!

As you have probably noticed, I haven't been updating my blog regularly lately. Life got pretty busy and during rare free days that I have, I like to work on my youtube channel. Being creative and spreading a positive (vegan) message in the form of videos makes me really happy. However, I have been missing spending more time on my blog and I am writing this to tell you that I am ready to get back on track :)
I have been reading quite a lot of things and have been getting inspired by many people and stories and I want to share some of them with you. Hopefully, they will help you and inspire you as well. Those moments, when you come across a message or a story that truly resonates with your state of mind, are precious and I love them! Hopefully, we can share some of those moments together. Things will get slightly different around here, but I hope you will enjoy them. 

Thank you for keep coming back to this blog of my personal dreams about better world, even when I wasn't updating it as much as I should! :)

Now here is to new beginnings. Cheers!
