"Compassion is a true source of happiness" - Dalai Lama
Coffee and Heels is a 100% cruelty-free blog....and here's why.
I was once a fashion-obsessed girl who loved nothing more than shoes, bags and brand-new dresses. I studied fashion in college and dreamed of being a fashion journalist. I was also a vegetarian. Later on, while working as an editor for a huge online fashion retailer, I couldn't help but feel like a hypocrite describing "soft calf-leather shoes" and "the new fur coats", especially as I was just looking into veganism at the time. Living a life that caused no harm to living creatures became a passion of mine - but I still adored style and devoured fashion magazines. So, one day, sipping a soy latte while wearing leather-free heels, I had an idea: I wanted to blog about my forays into kind fashion.
In July 2011, I started Coffee and Heels to explore my passion for compassionate lifestyle.
This blog has evolved into a personal diary infused with vegan fashion, cruelty-free beauty, yummy recipes and other adventures, plus travel diaries and my thoughts on everything from vegan chocolate cake to following your dreams.

If you're a company and want to collaborate with me: I'd love to! But please keep in mind that I will only work with companies that have a strong cruelty-free policy. I will not blog about leather shoes or silk scarves. I will not write a sponsored post about makeup that's tested on animals. On the other hand, if you're a cruelty-free brand, I'd love to be on board!
