Meow Meow Tweet! vegan skincare to make you look and smell delicious »
I especially loved:
The cocoa cream, which softens your skin and makes it smell like really expensive chocolate, and I do love to smell edible.
The rosemary eucalyptus lip balm, which goes with me everywhere because it is perfect protection against this stupid post-winter weather that is wreaking absolute havoc on my poor sensitive lips.
The walnut oat face exfoliant. It comes as a powder that you make into a paste by adding water, and at first I had a hard time getting the proportions right, but once I got it, I loved it. It thoroughly exfoliates without abrading your delicate face, and after this winter I have about a million layers of dry, dead skin to slough off. Soon, I will have a radiant summer(-adjacent) glow, I’m sure of it.
I like to put the relief balm on my temples when I have a headache, and if I were into massages, I imagine I’d like it rubbed into my sore muscles, too. It’s also been pretty nice on the burns I am, as a very careless cook, constantly causing myself.
The repair balm has got myrrh, which I didn’t realize I was super into until I opened this little canister and fell in love. I put this stuff on my cuticles, on (closed!) cuts, and sometimes on my lips when they are especially chapped (seriously, I was not made for this weather), and it smells fancy and feels really great.
You can buy these and all of Meow Meow Tweet’s line (they have a deodorant cream that I wasn’t too crazy about, but a friend of mine and her mom adore it) at these fine brick-and-mortars and online. They also make appearances at the Vegan Shop-Up in Bushwick, and have an adorable blog. Meow Meow Tweet is all natural vegan body care, made with love by vegans. I love their stuff and I bet you will, too.

Boy, Sarah knows what she’s doing! I don’t have to write jack. I can just sit back and do a little musing now. You know, I’ve been totally wanting to go to Pine Box Rock Shop—it’s a vegan bar! I’ve never been to a vegan bar. Who wants to go with me! Come on, it’ll be awesome! First bloody mary is on me. Except that will be the only one I buy because I think bloody marys are ick; I’m a mimosa-type girl! Boy am I a mimosa girl.
In conclusion, save the date! Sunday, Apr. 17: you, me, booze, shopping, happiness.
