I dyed my hair yellow!

Do you ever just get the urge to change how you look, drastically? Maybe it's an all-new wardrobe, getting a new piercing, or doing something with your hair.

How to be vegan when your friends & family aren’t

Being the only vegan in your family or group of friends can be really frustrating sometimes. I can’t count the amount of times I have tried to cook a vegan meal at home and all I found in my parents’ fridge was meat and dairy.
