This is What a Day in a Turkey’s Life is.


Hello friends!

Thanksgiving is approaching and many of us are planning how to celebrate. Here’s a little something to consider when deciding on the dinner.


Thanks for reading and sharing if so inspired!



A Day in a Pig’s Life


I want to share with you some of the most amazing aspects of piglets.

I find pigs so wonderful but also so underestimated. Unfortunately, they are a huge percentage of human’s diet. I think it is important to know what we include in our plates, so we make better and concious choices.

I appreciate your reading!





Love the Elephants


My recent publication on elephant journal

I love elephants.
This is an article where I say why. They are incredibly smart and sensitive beings and a lot of research has been done about their amazing communication skills.

Unfortunately, they are about to disappear if nothing is done to control illegal ivory trade.

There is always something every one of us can do.
Get informed and active!



What’s the Furry Fuss? ~ Reblogged


This is the story of a man who found conviction and changed his life for good.

What’s the Furry Fuss?.

I’m re-blogging this guest post from Celeste, who is a California writer exploring the gifts of a vegan lifestyle. David Simon wrote this post for her site to share the experience that got him into a new course in life and now he’s about to share with us all in his book Meatonomics. I invite you to read it and take what you feel connects with you.

Meatonomics: A Step in the Right Direction

Today I want to share with you this review I did for the Meatonomics book to be released this September 2013.

I cannot emphasize enough the importance of the subjects that it touches.

It is so worth the read. Click the link below to get my full review and let me know what you think!!




Go vegan – your selfless deed for the day

As I’m reading this article on the NYTimes: U.N. Appeals for $5 Billion in Aid for Syria
I find myself with the urge to share it from the vegan point of view.

The situation in Syria is critical (not only there, but in several regions) and thankfully there are people at every point of the issue. Doctors Without Borders (I hope to be part of the group one-day,) are providing assistance and food; as well as people at the UN speaking for them, etc etc.. but we can help too.

When you choose not to eat meat, you are also choosing not to eat tons of grains the animals are usually fed, not using fuel and other resourses to transport the meat, not drinking water used for its production. But instead you are supporting distribution of grains and food to people, use of money, fuel and other resources to help people in need.

I’m not saying that going vegan is the solution to the problems worldwide, but is a step we could all take towards a better world. As people say, the sea would not be the same without the drop you could provide.



What About Every Day Care Products?

I’ve been asked many times this question. The thing about the choices on everyday products falls into 2 questions… Has it been tested on animal? Dos it have animal products?

From this on, it can get to a deeper level, such as… Are the suppliers vegan? Is it owned by a non vegan company? And so on, up to… Have the ingredients ever been animal tested? Which would be a little unrealistic given the fact that animal testing has been used for so many many years; which on the bright side, give us nowadays the possibility to have different products without the necessity to test on animals.


My ideal however would be to use only what nature has brought to us, as raw as possible. I’ve tried combinations for creams and treatments that work just fine!! And I will share those later on of course, for now I will stick to some of the products I buy and use.



My ultimate favorite is LUSH cosmetics. I was introduced to this brand when I told my friend that I wouldn’t buy this one cream she was recommending because it was not cruelty free. It was then when she told me I would love Lush, which is all about cruelty free and vegan as can be.

Not only their products are totally what they promised, they smell awesome too! I like that whenever I go there the girls are super friendly and respond any question you have, they show you how to use the treatments and get lots of free samples too which is never a bad thing! 🙂 they have a website that is totally worth visiting because sometimes you can find deals on certain products that are cheaper than in the store.

I have tried some other brands which also work awesome…

urban decay

I usually don’t wear makeup that much, but I came across to Naked by Urban Decay and I like it so much! This one is cruelty free I got it at Sephora but if you ever get to go there ask but also check the packing because I noticed that some of the girls offer organic products assuming they are the same as cruelty free, so make sure to double check that 🙂 overall I really like Urban Decay but I’m definitely buying it somewhere else but Sephora, the associates there can be mean.


Another option is Wet n Wild, however I’m not sure if the whole company is cruelty free because not all of their packages state so…

This eyeliner is the one I have tried that stays on and is easy to remove.


Origins is another awesome brand I got to try. You can see that I got I little carried away with it hahah…


Most of their products are vegan but also ask the associates who are very helpful because not all of their catalog is vegan. Another plus with them is that you can actually get free facials and get free samples for you to try at home.


When it comes to toothpaste, wash Nd deodorant Toms is the one I like, a big plus with this. Company is that the employees give a percentage of their time to good causes. Alba has good cruelty deodorants too, its just a matter of try different brands and scents because sometimes certain scent can work for you and some other don’t even if is from the same brand.




Anyway, these are just some of the options I’ve tried, give some thought on it and if you haven’t tried them get one at he time until you find the one 🙂


There will be more to come, until then I hope to read what everyone think about them or any other you might use!!


Gabbi 🙂


The Time When I Got My First Tattoo

james sooper

This was the day when I got my first tattoo.. October 30th is my birthday and this year I decided that I wanted to do something new or special everyday of the month. A tattoo was one of the biggest ideas I had.

Got hands on and contacted James Spooner who is THE vegan tattoo artist. We arranged an appointment, the creative process began and the day came!! The idea of getting owls is personal but I also wanted to have two of them.

owl tattoowl tattoThe idea of having one standing, the other one flying and on each side of my head comes from the changes life threw at me from one second to the next. I had life changing situations where at one point I had important people in my life, plans, etc and the next completely different scenario. Having the idea in mind had been on my mind ever since that time, so having my month birthday I couldn’t let it pass.. I finally went to west Hollywood to get it done. James was the coolest guy ever and it was over too soon.

I enjoyed so much the whole day. From getting there, crossing half county, getting it done, talking to James.. anyway totally worth it!!


“We must not refuse to see with our eyes what they must endure with their bodies.”

Gretchen Wyler

Wise words from Gretchen Wyler. I read this quote a couple of days ago and I decided to share it because that is what people should hear and really understand when they refuse to know what their food contains and the origen and the trajectory it had to go thru before it is on the plate. 

Gretchen Wyler was an American actress with a true passion for animal protection as she founded the Genesis Awards for their protection. A person worth to be admired for giving voice to those who not everyone hear. My respect to her memory and footprint.
