We think this Valentine’s Day binder-ring manicure is genius. Try it with some polish by Nubar, a cruelty-free vegan company.

Follow our vegan recipe as usual—just use a heart-shaped cookie cutter while frying ’em up!

Animal testing stinks. Create your own cruelty-free signature scent! Try using gardenia essential oil if you’re craving some springtime.

Vegan cupcakes

Most conversation-heart candies contain gelatin, so if boiled ligaments aren’t your preferred medium for expressing your “TRU LUV,” try these. Heart-shaped cupcake trays do the trick.

Avoid the harsh ingredients found in many store-bought beauty masks by making your own with a few simple vegan ingredients.

Some candles contain animal fat, so this is a great project if you’d rather melt your sweetie’s heart than cows’ lard.

Cats give us the warm fuzzies year-round, so let’s return the favor!

Is it love or just a carb-induced serotonin boost? Either way, creamy pasta is a V-Day essential.
