Summer is finally here in New York!

Headed to the beach? Or is a calm and quiet staycation more your style?

Whatever you do or wherever you go I’d like to share my personal Summer reading list. All are from within the last year and I'm looking forward to take the time to get inspired and learn from these experts whose stories are essential to the realization of a sustainable and compassionate world. If you've read these please comment your thoughts or feel free to recommend your favorite ethical and vegan lifestyle books!

Hot off the press!

Give a Sh*t: Do Good. Live Better. Save the Planet.
by Ashlee Piper

Ashlee is on a mission to inspire you to start living like you give a shit - about your health, your footprint, and your planet! I just got this on audible, so absolutely no excuses, you do have time for this book in your life!


She's also on the cover of this month's

Ethical Style Journal, if a magazine is more your thing!

Another recent release in the US is:

Wardrobe Crisis: How We Went from Sunday Best to Fast Fashion
by Clare Press

Press explores the history and ethics behind what we wear. Putting her fashion journalist experience to good use, Press examines the entire fashion ecosystem, from sweatshops to haute couture, unearthing the roots of today’s buy-and-discard culture.

Another must read from the end of last year is:

Mercy for Animals: One Man's Quest to Inspire Compassion and Improve the Lives of Farm Animals
by Nathan Runkle and Gene Stone
I’m sure you’ve heard of Mercy for Animals, our nation's leading nonprofit organization for protecting factory farmed animals. But if you want to know more about the reality of our modern day food system, how to lead a more compassionate life and how to get involved, this is the book for you.

Just around the corner are two more books that I’ve preordered and am very excited about receiving this Fall!

Fashion Animals
by Joshua Katcher

Joshua spent five years writing the first and only critical book on animals in fashion. From extinctions to the use of animals as seductive symbols of power. Using fascinating, historical images and painstaking research Katcher has written a book dedicated to understanding animals in fashion, and to also celebrate visionary innovations that could replace the use of animals altogether.

Finally, coming in August is the English translation of:
This is a Good Guide - for a Sustainable Lifestyle Hardcover
by Marieke Eyskoot
Filled with practical and positive tips regarding fashion, beauty, food, home, work and leisure, Marieke’s guide shows that stylish and sustainable can coexist!

To measure your feet, stand with the back of your heels against a straight edge or wall.
Measure your foot length by placing a ruler flat on the floor straight alongside the inside of your foot from your heel to your toes. Place an object with a flat edge straight across your toes with the edge touching the tip of your longest toe. Take the measurement from the ruler where the flat edge crosses. This is your foot length measurement.
If you tend to have wide feet size up, for narrower feet size down unless otherwise noted in the size range.
