  • San Antonio hosted their first ever VegFest this year, and I got to volunteer to design all of their banners, t-shirts, posters, social media posts, etc! In exchange, Kino and I got complimentary VIP tickets that included vegan catering and a discount on all drinks. We even participated in VegRide with SATX Social Ride, a local road biking group that bikes together every week! This was my very first ever group ride, and it def was an interesting experience that gave me a little more confidence being on the road.

  • Tags For Hope: I found out about this company from my neighbor, and beyond being super cute and unique, they also donate to animal shelters and have a lifetime warranty on their product! I love that I was able to fit so much info on their, including some notes on the back regarding diet and behaviors just in case she is ever lost.

  • Got myself a dehydrator to make doggy treats (and other human goodies)! So far, dehydrated smelts, chicken gizzards, and pork hearts have been a hit! It’s been super fun experimenting with all natural single ingredient treats - saving money on processed treats too!

  • I visited Portland at the beginning of the month and got to meet alpacas for the first time with one of my best friends. I also successfully pulled us into Meat For Cats And Dogs, THE most amazing raw pet food store I’ve seen! I am still so starstruck by the sheer amount of freezers they have and the variety of items they carry. A must visit for all pet parents.

  • F/W 2020 Fashion Pinterest Inspo: I rarely purchase new clothes anymore, and I try to buy secondhand and/or from sustainable brands, but I do still love to indulge through creating fashion mood boards of what I’m loving this coming season!

  • Speaking of clothing, I’m really enjoying this article this month on How To Buy Clothes That Are Built To Last.

  • Kino and I had an absolute blast sampling our way through Central Market 25 Anniversary Foodie Fete. We even got complementary wine glasses!

  • Finished the month by attending our first Siclovia SA, the largest free community event that has been going strong for 17 years. During Siclovia, miles of major roads downtown are closed off to vehicles and are open to pedestrians, bikers, roller bladers, skateboarders, etc. with tons of vendors and local businesses giving away all sorts of goodies (Ice cream! Trees! Bike helmets! First aid kits! So many goodies)! Luna got lots of attention in her chariot, and I loved being able to safely bike down a huge city street.
