I am Victoria, a 26 year old vegan person living in NYC.
Here is my face smiling down at you.
I’ve always loved animals, thanks to growing up with two dogs as nannies, and of course, I despise the way and the fact that animals are killed for meat, leather, cheese, eggs, and wool.
I think we are on the cusp of a great revolution of animal rights. I think the quiet or not so quiet (PETA comes to mind) heroes of this movement will be in the history books soon.
I only started being so passionate about Animal Rights recently. Although in an intuitive way, I always agreed that animals had rights, it wasn’t until the comments and interactions I had on this blog inspired me to learn more, did I really understand how important and so very REAL the problem is.
This blog started as a fashion blog of sorts, showing people the best places to buy cool non leather shoes online. The most popular article on this blog is still (the recently improved and updated) “Where to Find Cool Vegan Shoes Online”. It is great! It will tell you how to start a wardrobe of vegan shoes that doesn’t look like you’re a mountain wanderer wearing straw on your feet. (you KNOW what I’m talking about hehe).
Oh yeah, also as a result of this blog, I’m now really into health. I converted recently from vegetarian to vegan, and now I’m currently experimenting with RAW VEGANISM. Crazy.
Readers of this blog have educated and inspired me in so many different ways, and I want to continue being inspired by you all. What I means is…
Leave me a comment with your blog, your thoughts, your shop, your organization, your vegan finds–I’d SO love to hear from you. It really makes my day and totally expands my mind…..(I am a hippie deep down).
Also join me on Facebook where I often post humorous vids, share the gorgeous pictures of animal organizations you should know about and post personal photos. MyNonLeatherLife on facebook.
