You want fancy shoes? Refinery29 has a deal for you! Through April 3rd, a $100 credit at Cri de Coeur online will cost you $50! THAT IS 50 PERCENT OFF YOUR SHOES. It is an excellent deal!
Vegan raw chocolate pudding from Sidesaddle Kitchen, courtesy of Refinery29. It’s made with avocados which seems genius and I’ve always wanted to try vegan pudding with an avocado base. Chocolate is the greatest and avocados are the greatest so they would prob be the even greatester together!
Sometimes I just want to call everybody lil’ puddin’. Would people like that? Come on, lil’ puddin’! You know you’d love it!
Top 10 links of the week! An edifying ramble through veganism! »
Per usual, I slipped up last week, so this spans a couple weeks. Leave me alone, I have a real job!
National Geographic has a nice infograph about the LEGAL wildlife trade in Asia. It’s ill. I would have posted it but it’s too big to post the whole thing so go check it out.
From One Green Planet, vegan wine pairings! I love my wine and you know this.
Grist wonders, is Idaho a safe haven for CAFOs (Confined Animal Feeding Operation)? Damn, Idaho, that’s whack.
Wildlife officials in upstate New York “are squealing over ‘captive hunts’ upstate that have flooded three counties with out-of-control feral hogs.” Squealing.
This is kind of a big deal but I don’t have time to write a good post on it so maybe it can be our discussion topic: A new economics study confirms Namibian seal-watching is worth 300 percent more than seal hunting. I’ve heard of things like this before, where like safari-type tourist things could be worth more than elephant ivory and whale-watching could bring in more cash money than whale-killing. Have you guys? Seems pretty awesome. There should be an organization that JUST focuses on this. Money makes the world go round!
Our favorite guilt-ridden omni, Sami Grover from Treehugger, says all the meat eaters should eat less meat! It’s totes true.
Vegan Mainstream says our Laura is a vegan mover and shaker! That Laura, she’s so lovable. And foul-mouthed.
Gothamist taste-tested the Dun-Well faux-gras donut and the foie gras donut, and the dudes who made the actual dead-goose-liver pastry were all, The fake one is good, but we won’t be making a vegan version ourselves because vegans have “a FUBU mentality when it comes to vegan delights.” Which, buddy, do you know how much more business you would get if you offered novelty fancy vegan food? So much.
Refinery29, of which my favorite ex-boyfriend is a founding member, has a nice vegan shoe list: 12 Vegan Shoes That Aren’t Fugly. Some of the usual suspects, but several I hadn’t seen! And YOU KNOW I seen a lot of shoes. I like those first loafers, buy them for me.
OMG EDWARD IS THAT YOU??!!!!
Nope, it’s Edward Cullen CAT! He (or she!) was one of the many entrants in the North Shore Animal League’s Fashionable Feline Extravaganza! It was held yesterday in the Algonquin Hotel in New York City, to celebrate Matilda the cat’s (of the Algonquin Hotel Matildas) birthday. Also, of course, as a benefit for the “largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization in the world.”
Refinery29 was at Wednesday’s Extravaganza, and oh, the pictures they’ve posted. Oh, the indignities these Fashionable Felines suffered. Although dressing a hairless cat (why hairless cats? It seems so cruel) as the Mad Hatter or “ancient Egyptian” is still significantly less insane than tattooing the poor creature.
