Living the Life of a Vegan

Many women and men in today's society are vegans. Being a vegan is a lifestyle for most and not just a small part of one's day. So when it comes to high fashion, especially with shoes, its extremely difficult to find designer clothes made of alternative synthetic materials without compromising style. After all, many shoes are made of animal products such as leather, suede, crocodile skin, etc. That is until now. A new line through shoe designer, Te Casan, developed by actress Natalie Portman, offers high fashion shoewear made from entirely synthetic products.

And boy are they cute! Check out two of our favorites...


An Engagement Story

Engaged: 2-14-2008
Engaged at: During a horse drawn carriage ride through Westlake Center
Wedding Date: 9-12-2009
Ceremony Location: TBD

Amy & Michael's first date was well before they fell in love, actually it was 2 1/2 years before they starting dating each other. Amy was at his house with a bunch of friends just hanging out and she secretly wanted to get away with just him. So jokingly during a conversation she suggested that he take her to dinner. Well it worked! He totally loved the idea and they left for dinner about 15 minutes later. Michael took Amy to a wonderful little Italian restaurant, called Romeo's just down the road. It was very romantic and it was just the two of them.

On Valentine's Day of 2008, Michael asked Amy to be his wife and she said "yes."
