Spring is (finally!) almost here and Easter is a little over 2 weeks away… What better way to celebrate the changing season and upcoming holiday than with chocolate! (Vegan chocolate, of course.) Sjaak’s Organic Chocolates kindly sent me a sampling of their holiday-themed confections to “tastefully” ring in the new season. I’ve been a big (BIG) fan of Sjaak’s for a couple years now. I first discovered them in a subscription box (the now defunct Vegan Presence, I believe), and they’ve since been featured in a few others. They’re a family-owned business dedicated to producing high quality confections while maintaining socially responsible practices. All of Sjaak’s handcrafted treats are […]
I can’t believe Valentine’s Day will be here in less than 3 weeks! Where did the time go?! To get me into the V-Day spirit, Sjaak’s Organic Chocolates sent me a selection of their vegan chocolates to review. — It was a tough job, but I was up to the challenge. 😉

I was recently sent two packages of Blue Diamond Almonds for the purpose of writing a post that incorporated them into my summer activities/festivities. As the due date approached, I was at a total loss as to what I would post about. Leisurely snackin’ on almonds poolside while basking in the summer sun? (Nope, we don’t even have a pool. And I don’t “bask”.) Hosting a get-together where my guests indulge in decadent appetizers which happen to include a hearty dose of almonds? (Nah… Too much planning.) When it finally came down to it, I knew I had to do […]

Welp, the time has come… This is the final Vegan Presence package. They announced a few months back that the subscription would be coming to an end in June, and here we are. Vegan Presence is was a monthly subscription box service that featured — you guessed it — 100% vegan-friendly products. Items ranged from food to beauty to household essentials. I looked forward to their packages every month and am mega bummed that the fun is over. That said, I was hoping for an amazing “final package” of goodies, but was kinda underwhelmed. To be honest, I’m actually sorta happy about it […]
