An unedited sneak peek from our BRUCE HEART THE LABEL lookbook for our first item of the basics collection.

Our Oversized Boy Toy Tee comes in black, leopard and floral. The most comfortable fabric and highest quality manufacturing right here in Downtown LA. The new website goes live this Friday and you can purchase from our online store! Shipping worldwide :)

We’ll be donating a portion of sales to various animal welfare organizations and a year after purchasing our items we’ll endeavor to buy them back and give them to the less fortunate in our community.

Huge thanks the YRU for the fancy shoes we used in this shoot! http://y-r-u.com/

Disney World Gets A Gluten-Free And Vegan Bakery

There is a Mickey Mouse God!

Being vegan and going to theme parks, it’s hard to find delicious meals to eat without having to either starve or be an annoying customer who changes the order so its dairy, egg and meat free.

Erin McKenna, the founder of BabyCakes bakery, says she brought her gluten-free and vegan shop to the theme park to help make Disney more about the magic for everyone. “Disney is this place that’s a fantasy land,” she tells HuffPost over the phone. “It was really exciting to open [Erin McKenna’s Bakery] there because it was completing that fantasy for a lot of kids and parents with food allergies.” For some, it may feel like magic to walk into an enticing bakery and be able to order anything from the menu.

Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC offers a range of baked goodies: Frosted cupcakes and cakes, donuts, cookies and breads are available at all three of the store locations (the other two are in New York City and Los Angeles).


Vegan Must Try...

The Vanilla Sprinkle donut from Babycakes NYC on Larchmont in LA.

We discovered this one today. We’ve tried all the others but this flavour is our personal favourite. It’s everything we’ve ever dreamed of in a vegan donut.

Did you know that everything from Babycakes NYC is all of the below? 

REFINED SUGAR-FREE 

GLUTEN-FREE 

WHEAT-FREE 

SOY-FREE 

DAIRY-FREE 

EGG-FREE 

VEGAN & KOSHER

This makes us very happy. It’s also just a 20 minute walk from our place.

We’ve decided to come back to TUMBLR and post regularly on fashion, food, beauty and more.

If we can help just one person make a conscious decision to help animals (whether you eat meat or not) then HELL YES we will. 

Come back daily for new updates, food/shopping recommendations, reviews and styled fashion posts.

We love you!

For flawless make-up you need a flawless skincare routine… By Rylee

I have tried nearly every vegan skincare range known to the compassionate world. A few months ago i did a post on Instagram asking my followers to help me find a new skincare brand to get my troubled skin back into shape. One of my followers mentioned how great this 100% vegan and organic range was which is made in Malibu, CA. Little did i know i would become OBSESSED with OSEA and turn a lot of my followers on to this amazing company. Not only is OSEA great for your skin but its also great for the environment with their sustainable practices.

A little bit about OSEA Malibu

Today, we are committed to providing customers with extensively researched products designed for their purity, quality, and effectiveness. We develop our products with only the purest ingredients proven and technically advanced formulations to restore skin to its highest level of health and appearance.

We also take care to harvest our natural ingredients in an eco-responsible manner to ensure the sustainability of the incredible ecosystems in which they are found.

The products which i CAN’T live without from OSEA Malibu:

On our last trip to LA together we shot in the new Enter Shikari music video for their ‘Warm Smiles Do Not Make You Welcome Here’ track. It’s from their latest album ‘A Flash Flood Of Colour’ and was done by the incredibly talented Raul Gonzo.

We got to see them live the night before at The Roxy and they were amazing as usual.

It was a fun day and everyone on set was rad to hangout with especially the ES dudes…cutest British boys ever.

You can watch the video on the post below :)

What to eat for breakfast at a fancy restaurant?

So we’re vegan right, so what the hell can we eat at a fancy spot like The Beverly Hills Hotel? Or anywhere for that matter. Well here you go - these two options are our all time favourite.

Toasted muesli/cereal/granola (check there isn’t already honey in it) with fresh fruit and soy/almond milk…

Toasted bagel with a side of avocado. Get it with a lemon wedge and add lots of pepper!

Oh and by the way - you can get this anywhere! It doesn’t have to just be at a fancy place. We could eat this any time of the day. It’s also available on most ‘room service’ menu’s too.
