Vegan Sparkles in the U.S. of A.!!November 15th, 2012 40 comments
YES, my gorgeous glitterbugs, the rumours are true!
The Vegan Sparkles tour of the U.S.A. is about to commence! (excited squeeeeal!)
No more relying on my imagination to translate the amazing taste descriptions delivered by my favourite American bloggers. I’m finally heading over to check out all the infamous tempeh reubens, rye bread sandwiches with pickles, Daiya pizza, corn bread biscuits, and red velvet cakes for myself! And in true Entourage style, I’m bringing seven friends along for the ride! Oh my!
Naturally my highest priority is making sure that I eat my way through as many vegan joints as possible so I can come back to Australia and re-create them for you. I’ve made a list of the recommendations I’ve received so far and would be thrilled to hear any more that you have – especially anything involving Daiya, vegan food trucks and/or Mexican food.
Lay them on me, baby!

Blogging on the Road ♥••*´¨`*•.☆•
I thought long and hard about taking my laptop on the trip and blogging throughout the journey but in the end I decided to spend the time soaking everything up to the max and to just take notes in my sparkly new notebook and share my stories (and recipes!) with you when I get back.
I will absolutely Instablog on the road, though and thanks to recent changes to Instagram you don’t even need a smart phone to come on photo tour with me, YAY!
I’ll return the week beginning 10th December with some exiting ideas and new directions for you that I hope you’re going to love. In the meantime you might want to check out a few of my favourite sites:
- Olive on Blonde – for eco-harmony living and DIY natural beauty products.
- Jia Ni Teo – for happy, healthy, abundant life inspiration.
- Eclectori – for beautiful clothes and gifts from talented West Australian designers.
- Keepin’ It Kind , Vedged Out, Tofudie and Veggieful – for incredible vegan food.
Take care, beautiful souls! I will miss you!
Love, light and sparkles,
