Vegan in Berlin: part 1

OK, so I totally didn’t plan for my next piece to be a vegan travel number, yet my recent trip (and an email request from the delightful Eve of Eve Organics!) kind of dictated this one. So, I’m going to tell you all about my fifth trip to Berlin, and my first as a vegan. […]


Buff Beauty on going vegan!

OK, so the title of this post is more about something that happened on the juice cleanse than the cleanse itself.
