www. du jour

I've long been a fan of Alicia Silverstone, Clueless being my favourite film as a child. More recently I've been admiring her lifestyle choices and how she uses her status to encourage the world to become more aware of how we treat planet Earth and it's inhabitants. She is a dedicated animal rights and enviromental activist and her website the kind life is a guide on how to live life to the fullest while "taking care of Mama Earth" She writes on everything from eco-friendly fashion, to delicious healthy recipes.

I'm an animal lover yet I occasionally eat meat. This has never quite sat right with me either and I found it interesting to read that Alicia herself similarly struggled with this, eventually becoming vegan in 1998. I've dabbled in vegetarianism but always went back to eating meat.

I don't think I could ever become fully vegan but I'm certainly interested how I can adapt my lifestyle  to be more in line with this way of living. At the very least I always strive to be aware of where the food I consume comes from.
I believe your body will thank you for it!


  1. vegetarianism is awesome! i have been veg for more than four years now (still eat fish on occasion) but feel much better not eating all that hormone-induced meat! there are countless reasons to go vegetarian! i highly recommend it :)

  2. I have exactly the same thought as you.

    I love animals but am finding it hard to be a pure vegetarian.

    So I find myself often just choosing to eat vegetarian meals as and when I can, and to cut down on my meat consumption as well.

  3. Ah, I am in a very similar position right now! I was able to stop eating meat for a year but I simply could not keep it up. Now I eat mean on occasion! Great post, darling! Love your blog and now following! Maybe you'll have time to visit my blog:)


  4. I agree - I love animals, but I still eat meat every so often so I there's no way I'm vegetarian and I don't know if I could totally be one, but maybe one day. :) Oh and I love Clueless too.


thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! it means so much to me and i love reading them!
