Back to Arm the Animals. Can you tell that I love this company? Arm the Animals is a creative clothing company that donates a generous portion of their proceeds to animal shelters. I feel so much more comfortable making purchases when I know my money is going towards a good cause. I love their shirts so much that I keep on buying more and more. They're so creative and unique! Now I've got my eye on this one.

Feel free to visit their online shop. Which ones are your favorite?

a christmas playlist that will last you the whole season



You guys, this playlist has over 300 songs. Artists include Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Michael Bublé, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong & Dean Martin. To name a few. Of course A Charlie Brown Christmas' soundtrack is included too. ;) You can listen to it album by album or put it on shuffle (which I prefer). This 15 hour (!) playlist has been keeping me company while working, online Christmas shopping, & car rides. These are the type of songs that I enjoy during the holiday season, and I hope you do too!

vlog number three

So I wanted to jump into Vlogmas with the rest of YouTubers but it's HARD! For one thing, I don't have interesting things going on like they do. It seems that they are going to events all of the time & have fun things to do. Me on the other hand, I go to work in an office 8 hours of the day. I can imagine that isn't very riveting material. So I'll keep up with my vlogging but I have decided that there is no way I can do it on a daily basis. & I'm fine with that. :)

I hope you enjoy my 3rd vlog! I'm sure you've noticed that I enjoy making videos so thank you so much for watching.

EASY vegan pumpkin pie & whipped cream


In the blogging world, this post can be considered out of date because Thanksgiving was yesterday. But you guys have pumpkin pie after Thanksgiving, right? I feel that pumpkin pie is more of holiday pie not necessarily just a Thanksgiving dessert.

Anyway, my older sister Natalie (she runs a vintage Instagram shop, so feel free to check it out!) made this YUMMY, simple, vegan pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving this year. Since I've become vegan, I have felt leery about making my own vegan pumpkin pie. In recipe photos, they seemed to not have a firm consistency. But that's not the case for this recipe. The simplicity of this recipe is insane. 5 INGREDIENTS! (It says 4 in the title of post, but you need to purchase or create your own pie crust.) Kathy posted this recipe in 2011 and according to the comments, people have been making this pie year after year. I think will will too. Great recipe!

I made delicious & also simple, vegan whipped cream. It has 1 ingredient and 2 optional ingredients. The recipe calls for coconut milk, but I used coconut cream (which I found at Trader Joe's). You whip it up with sugar and vanilla extract (to taste). Don't expect this whipped cream to taste exactly like typical whipped cream. It still has it's coconut taste, but it's fresh and yummy. (Like it's photoed in the post, it tastes SO GOOD with strawberries.)

This dish was the highlight of my Thanksgiving. What was yours?
