1.) Trader Joe’s coconut milk ice cream
This particular ice cream is my go to when I want a little evening treat. The coconut gives it a nice creamy consistency and it doesn’t take on the nuttier flavors like some of the brands that use almond milk. And to really top if off, throw in some vegan chocolate chips!

2.) Live Clean Baby lotion
This baby lotion is 100% plant based and fragrance free. My whole life I have gravitated to baby lotions to use myself, there is something about them that makes my skin feel softer and the formula is usually more gentle. I found this brand on a recent trip to Walgreens as I needed some more lotion to pack for a trip I was heading on…. and I might have just found a new favorite.

3.) Candy Corn Dots
Since it is officially Halloween this week I was thinking about all the vegan candy options. Unfortunately candy corn is not of the vegan variety but DOTS makes a candy corn flavor. DOTS to the candy corn rescue! We listed a lot of different vegan candies on our table tents this month but in case you missed them you can find a full list of vegan friendly candy at www.peta.org. We also had a blog last week about lots of candy alternatives to keeping Halloween fun but keeping the sugar consumption in check!

4.) Lace-up boots by Mossimo
These little boots have stood the test of time and have logged a lot of miles and pass both my style and comfort tests. In Chicago we do a lot of walking and these boots are, well, made for walking and that's just what they’ll do. Aside from fitting into the lyrics of a Nancy Sinatra song they are also made of all man made materials, aka vegan. They are available both online and in Target stores.

1.) JR Watkins Dish Soap
I LOVE lavender so anything I can get with the lavender scent makes me happy. This includes home care products because having an apartment that smells like a field of lavender is the kind of apartment I want to come home to every night. Lucky for me JR Watkins, a company that uses all plant-based formulas, offers most of their products with lavender edition. But, do not worry if you are not gaga for lavender there are plenty of other natural scents to keep your dishes happy.
