Spring has sprung!
Spring is the best time for fresh greens, a fresh beauty routine, and a fresh exercise regimen. Here are my top five must-haves for a fantastically vegan spring.
If you are newbie vegan looking to try out some cruelty-free beauty products for the first time, or if you are like me and just looking for a good excuse to buy some more awesome vegan cosmetics, look no further!
The Vegan Cuts Beauty Box is an insane deal you don’t want to miss. You can subscribe to get a box every month, or simply sign up for one box (only $23!) — whatever suits you! Pictured here is April’s box that I just received; perfect timing to give my beauty routine a little boost for spring!
2) The Green Warrior Smoothie by OhSheGlows.com
I am a long-time fan of Angela’s over at OhSheGlows.com. This woman creates the most insanely amazing recipes. When springtime rolls around, I am always looking to her for fresh green smoothie ideas. This one is an all-time favorite.
The recipe includes:
- fresh red grapefruit juice
- dinosaur/Lacinato kale
- hemp hearts
- frozen mango
- fresh mint leaves
- virgin coconut oil
How amazing does that sound?!

3) Mason Jar To-Go!
If you’re anything like me, you are making your morning smoothies and running out of the door in the morning with no time to waste. If you don’t have one of these yet, your life is about to change.
It comes with a set of glass re-usable drinking straws that fit perfectly in the lid. Perfect for sipping your morning smoothie, juice, or iced coffee in the car or subway on the way to work without spilling your delicious drink.
4) Online yoga classes!
For my yoga friends who find it tough to get out of the house and to a studio, spring is the perfect time to invest in an online yoga membership.
I personally love a combination of studio classes and home practice, but some months when I’m on a tight budget, I find that an online membership is totally the way to go. YogaDownload.com has a really nice assortment of classes and they are currently offering 50% off a one-month membership. Yay!
BONUS: I have yet to bite the bullet on this one, but if you’ve been wanting to get certified as a yoga instructor, you can actually do it online through YogaDownload.com on your own time. Use promo code ICanTeach for $300 OFF until April 30th!
I’m not going to lie, I wear a lot of black and gray, especially in the winter. But when spring rolls around, it’s nice to add a pop of color, like these GORGEOUS purses by Gunas New York. All Gunas products are 100% vegan, ethically made (aka sweatshop-free!), and eco-conscious, not to mention super chic. They may cost a little bit more than a cheap pleather bag you might find at Schmorever Schmenty-One, but I promise it will last you ten times longer and you can wear it knowing that it was made ethically and in the best interest of the Earth, the animals, and the humans making them.
As always, thanks for supporting cruelty-free businesses.
For the animals,
