Price: From $750.00 AUD  Where to Buy: www.koala.com In a world where you can buy just about anything online, it's probably no surprise that mattresses are taking the online shopping world by storm! Having a mattress delivered in a box may seem like a crazy concept, but with brands popping up all over the place, buying mattresses in a box is the new trend.

Not only does the Koala mattress have the Good Environmental Choice Certification and exceed international and global environmental regulations, each mattress is also: 100% Australian Made 100% recyclable 100% vegan and cruelty free (you don't see...

Big Sound, Small Price – Dearear Headphones

Price: $78.00USD Where to Buy: www.dearear.co.nz I’ve spent a total of 8 hours in New Zealand, all of that spent in Auckland airport so I can’t really tell you much about the place itself. What I can tell you though is that I like a lot of things from New Zealand; South Gin, Whittaker’s Chocolate and Flight of the Conchords just to name a few. I now have another thing to add to the list, Dearear headphones! The guys at Dearear sent your girl a pair of their Buoyant In-Ear Wireless headphones to take for a spin and spin I did (not like a spin class on a bike, ew, do you even know me?) First up, let’s take a look at the packaging...

Change Lives with Thankyou

Price: From $1.99 Where to Buy: www.thankyou.co for stockists With so many companies out there makin' all kinds of crazy things that can often add little-to-no value to the way we live, it's nice to find brands who actually give a shit about stuff.

It's now 2016 and not only are Thankyou doing some good with their water range but their food, bodycare and baby ranges too! So...

There was once a time where Christmas shopping for a vegan would have been more nightmarish than the Boxing Day sales and trust me, that time wasn't so long ago. But not anymore! We're being hit with new and amazing vegan products every damn day, so much so that it can be hard to keep track of it all. Each year I like to put together a little collection of my fave gift ideas to make things hella easy and keep your Christmas merry, bright and cruelty free! The Big Gifts How much cash you've got to drop can often depend on how much you love the recipient (don't act like it's not true).

memobottle

Price: From $22.00 USD Where to Buy: www.memobottle.com You guys should know by now that I'm a sucker for good design and thoughtful packaging, so it's no surprise I fell in love with the memobottle as soon as I saw it! Naturally I was thrilled when memobottle sent me a couple to review (and if you read on, you'll have the chance to win one of your own). These dope water bottles were born when fellow Aussies (another tick) Jesse and Jonathan were frustrated at the amount of single-use drink bottles washing ashore in a country where clean drinking water is so easily accessible, not to mention the fact that traditional drinking bottles didn't fit easily in back packs and laptop bags. You may...

2015 Vegan Christmas Gift Guide

Full disclosure: I bloody love Christmas and everything that comes along with it. The decorations, buying gifts, wrapping gifts (yep), baking and driving around for hours looking at Christmas lights. It's usually my aim to have my Christmas shopping completed by the end of November, so that I can spend my December baking, decorating and just being heaps festive. Oh and executing my thoroughly thought out wrapping theme (yeah, I do that too). I understand that many don't share my love of gift buying and sometimes through veganism into the mix can add an extra layer of "ohmygodwhatdoIdoChristmasisaweekawayI'mgoingtocry" I would love to act as your personal shopper and gift wrapper over the Christmas season but until I can teleport, my 2015 Vegan...
