Speaking of chocolate, Melissa at Vegenista veganized this chocolate, cherry, and pistachio tart by Giada di Laurentis. Isn’t it glorious? I’d say she’s outdone herself, but this little beauty is really her average work (girl composes a mean salad, too). Is it too late for Christmas desserts? NO. It’s not even Epiphany yet! Really, anytime is the right time for chocolate tarts.
Get the recipe and see more delectable photos at Vegenista, where Melissa documents her fabulous SoCal vegan lifestyle (including recipes).

If you don’t remember, I actually visited the BB store on my fabulous trip to London a little while ago. I got some super great shoes that everybody compliments me on! Oh boy, do I like compliments.
It looks like the store has only gotten better. They have these great little icons to help you with your ethics!:
And Melissa is making shoes for men now? Awesome!:
I don’t know why but I love driving shoes. Right? They are so classy and not at all as unnecessary as they sound.
Ok buddies! That is your Vegansaurus perk for now! I will keep looking out for deals in the future. Enjoy!
Happy Thanksgiving from Melissa of Vegenista! This is her kale and brussels sprouts salad; isn’t it gorgeous? Her dishes are so beautiful, you guys; remember last year’s pomegranate and brussels sprouts salad? Like art. Go get inspired by more photos of her amazing feast!
New plastic shoes from Melissa! These are one of two designs by Jason Wu, who has inexplicably used fur in past collections, but we’ll forgive him a little for that because these are super-duper adorable. Can’t tell you the cost because they’re not available yet, but according to Fashionologie you’ll be able to get them in black, burgundy, “nude,” and “transparent gray,” and lined with “pink and black lace.”
I am not crazy for owls, but I love these shoes’ weird soap-dish-y form and teeny tiny peep toes—almost cutesy, but I bet the hideousness of “transparent gray” will bring them into ugly-cuteness. Either way, SHOES I LOVE SHOES.

Happy Thanksgiving from Melissa the Vegenista! She finished her dinner with this pumpkin cheesecake from the New Vegan Table on a coordinating plate, which is both adorable and a little intimidating. You can—and should!—admire the rest of her feast here!

Jean Paul Gaultier + Melissa »
Here’s the new Jean Paul Gaultier for Melissa shoe. It’s set to come out this June. I’m a big Melissa fan but I’m not that into these. The black ones just make me think of shoes you’d get for a prom in the 90’s or something. I prefer the pin-up style Melissa did with Vivienne Westwood like this red Mary Jane. I don’t know, maybe I’m just being crazy. If history is any indication, PROBABLY!
