When I say that I am obsessed with each of these new favorite things, I mean that I eat, wear or use them every day since discovering them. No exaggeration.
OCHO stands for Organic Chocolate. Their bars are also gluten-free, non-GMO, and the coconut bar is vegan. I found these at my local Ralph's grocery store and nearly flipped my lid when I tasted it. If you liked Mounds or Almond Joy candy bars, this is your lucky day. Available on their website. $1.99 each. (I just hope they veganize all their bars. Vegan Snickers, c'mon!)
(These boots come in a number of colors and even suede-like material. Men's shoes also available.)
If you've read my favorite things posts you know that I am ready to give it all up to become a vegan shoe designer. (Not really, but I do fantasize about it occasionally.) I'm always searching for stylish, comfy vegan shoes. I feel like I won the Lotto with these shoes. I've worn them every day since receiving them. The most comfortable shoe out of the box ever. And such quality stuff. Machine washable and water resistant, too! What?! Take a look at the info about their vegan line:

Vegan/All natural shampoos are a tricky thing. Most leave me flat. (No pun intended.) The only exception I've found is Hugo Naturals shampoos. Imagine my surprise when it actually lathered! I've tried a few of their shampoos, and I've been pleased with each of them. It's my go-to shampoo now. Plus, they're an awesome company who believe in using food-grade ingredients for their bath and beauty products. $9.99/12 oz.

I honestly believe that by supporting conscious cruelty-free companies, though more expensive than their cheap toxic or cruel counterparts, you bring more joy, health and ABUNDANCE into your life and the world.
