VEGAN at Natural Products Expo West 2018 RECAP + NEW YouTube Channel!

Expo West 2018 was such a fun experience and I walked away feeling SO optimistic and excited for the future of veganism! 

The last few months have been filled with new projects that I can't wait to share, as well as A LOT of traveling! I returned to the Natural Products Expo this March of 2018, in Anaheim, California, to check out all of the new vegan products that are about to hit the market! Expo West is the world’s largest natural organic and healthy products event, with 85,000 attendees and 3,521 exhibiting companies from all over the world. There was no shortage of exciting vegan products to taste, and cruelty-free products to try!


At the Expo, I had the pleasure of attending the annual Vegan Meet Up and the Vegan Networking Event hosted by Whitney Lauritsen AKA @ecovegangal. I also stopped by the annual Field Roast party which is always a lot of fun. It was so wonderful to see so many familiar faces, as well as connect with super inspiring, like-minded influencers and brands with incredible innovative vegan products. Expo West 2018 was such a fun experience and I walked away feeling SO optimistic and excited for the future of veganism. It was whirlwind weekend and I can’t wait to go again next year! I've included my recap below and I cannot wait for you to check it out!

And I have news to share - I have officially launched my YouTube channel! It has been a long time coming, and I am thrilled to say that my channel is now live. On this channel you can expect more easy vegan recipes, travel vlogs, cruelty-free beauty, and ethical & sustainable lifestyle content. I want to inspire you to choose non-violence by choosing vegan, so that we can end suffering and save our planet. I'd love for you to join my growing community of like-minded, compassionate people by SUBSCRIBING to my channel and sharing my new video on social media!
