Hope you're all having an awesome weekend :) I'll be doing a recipe video later today so keep an eye out for that!
I just wanted to let you know about the launch of my new online shop as I'm super excited for it! It features a wide range of fruit-themed products, from drinking bottles, to sweatshirts, journals to baby grows, so there is something for everyone! A lot of the clothing is organic which I am so happy about, so if you can choose these items and help protect the planet then please do :) All the designs are my own creation, so original Raw Monkey graphics!
Why I launched this shop? Well, on this diet and lifestyle I've often found it hard to find really fun clothing and accesssories to buy. I really don't want to go round wearing a t-shirt with a picture of a cupcake, chocolates, or an icecream on it! I'm raw vegan through and through after all. (And adding the slogan 'naughty but nice' still isn't enough to tempt me!!! - If something is bad for me in what way is it nice exactly!?!)
So I realized that if I wanted fruit-themed clothing to wear, I'd have to design it myself instead - and that's what I've done! It makes me really happy to be able to get up in the morning and put on a hoody with a watermelon design on the front, or go out for a run in my banana-themed t-shirt! (I do get hungry if I look at them too much though!!!) And my family and friends are happy too as they always know what to get me for presents now, so no more 'raw vegans are just so hard to buy for' ;)
Also, I love being able to wear clothes that promote the raw vegan lifestyle. This diet has completely transformed my life and I want others to know about the amazing benefits of eating raw. As well it's a great way to promote veganism in general; better for us, better for the animals, and better for the planet :)
I'll be adding more designs each month so if anyone has a request for a product they'd like to see, just let me know and I'll try to incorporate it :)
Here's a link to the shop http://www.cafepress.com/therawmonkey and I really hope you like it :)
Have a great day,
