Saturday Shares 7.19.2015

As I mentioned earlier this week one of the reasons I started my blog was to participate in the blogging community. Many of my favorite bloggers share weekly or monthly lists of things that they have seen, read or tried that they enjoy. I’m going to start doing that here at Vegan Gretchen with my Saturday Shares posts. Hope you enjoy!

Julie Hasson Freezer Jam – I have not gotten into canning and have never made jam since I am concerned I would poison my whole family. Julie’s freezer jam made with Instant Clear Jel looks like the perfect homemade jam – no cooking required. My Clear Jel arrived yesterday so I’ll be making it this weekend.

Kris Carr Safe & Affordable Skin and Hair Care Brands – Kris Carr is one of my favorite authors/resources for information. Lately she has been putting together reports on makeup that is cruelty-free and made without toxins. Her latest report is on drugstore brands. I love a good deal!

Petit Vour Beauty Subscription – I have tried and loved the Beauty Box from Vegan Cuts, but I wanted to try another cruelty-free beauty subscription. I’m looking forward to receiving (and reviewing) my first box in a few weeks.

Homemade Vegan Butter – I’m late to the game on this one, but I’m intrigued by the idea of making my own vegan butter substitute.

New Nordic Ware Bundt Pan – This arrived on Thursday and I’ll be testing a new bundt cake recipe in it this week.

Korean Tofu Bibimbap Sandwiches – We love Korean food in our house and this sandwich looks completely delicious

Ta-Nehisi Coates New Book – Ta-Nehisi Coates is one of the most thoughtful and insightful writers regarding race in America. I have long been a fan of his writing for The Atlantic and I’m just starting his latest book, Between the World and Me.  The book is written as a series of letters to his teenage son and explores the history of race in America.

Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale – The perfect time to stock up on fall fashion at a discount from my favorite department store.
