First of all, I’d like to wish everybody a happy new year, and a healthy and compassionate 2016!
In the spirit of new beginnings, I have changed my blog to the new and improved ‘Vegan Boho’. When I started blogging, I wasn’t really sure where I was going with it, I just wanted to write about animal advocacy issues and living life as a vegan. Turns out this worked out pretty well, and now I want to focus on certain topics that I think will (hopefully) be interesting to read about.
My main focus will be on animal rights in the news, animal sanctuaries, vegan fashion & beauty and delicious vegan food, plus any other observations I may encounter along the way.
In 2015, I was lucky enough to write the Sanctuary Spotlight section for vegan news blog Your Daily Vegan. With this coming to an end, I have decided to continue writing about animal sanctuaries on Vegan Boho. I will continue to visit sanctuaries from around the globe – last year I travelled to California to visit ‘Farm Sanctuary’, and I already have some exciting new visits planned for the coming year.
I also love fishing out the latest animal-free clothing and beauty products, which I will be reviewing on Vegan Boho, as well as vegan restaurants and food products. Please see my About Me page to find out how you can contact me to discuss reviewing a product, honestly and informatively.
Finally, why ‘Vegan Boho’? Well I just thought it sounded pretty good… Also, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, someone who can be described as ‘bohemian’ is ‘an artist, literary man, or actor, who leads a free, vagabond, or irregular life, not being particular as to the society he frequents, and despising conventionalities generally.’ I’m actually a woman, but I thought this was a pretty interesting way to relate to veganism and the idea of how using animals for food, clothing, entertainment etc. is widely regarded as ‘the norm’.
I hope my current readers will continue to follow me on my new adventures, and look forward to bringing you all lots of Vegan Boho goodness in 2016!
