Phoebe & Lily Lawson  #vegansisters on an odyssey to live more kindly wherever we may find ourselves. 📍#mumbai 📍#capetown

Adopt don't shop. This is a very important hashtag trending worldwide. We come from a family who has always adopted pets. We were taught from a young age that there are lots of beautiful dogs and cats who need homes in the shelters and buying animals in our family has always been rather taboo. As such, this is something we feel very strongly about. If you are someone, who would like a pedigree animal and not a mixed breed; many NGO’s and animal shelters also have pedigrees who have been abandoned or rescued…So, before buying an animal google the NGO's in your area to see if they have the breed you are looking for, or something close to what you want.

Recently Diamond (Phoebe’s Rotweiler rescue) was very sick and we weren’t happy with the treatment he was getting at the private clinic he goes to, so we took him to the SPCA in Lower Parel. From the moment you walk in the doors, it’s obvious that the people who work there are there because they love animals. They work around the clock for very little and see all sorts of animals. When we say all sorts, we really mean it… They treat everyone, from regular dogs and cats to monkeys, oxen, horses, goats, cows and birds — so, I'm sure if you found an iguana randomly roaming around they may even help you with him/her as well.
If you are looking for a place to donate money to, they do such great work and could definitely use all the help they can get. Dr Kumar is our favourite vet there and we have seen him a few times after this visit, if you would like his number, he also does home visits. Please DM us and we will gladly pass it along. 🐶🐱🐮🐰🐹🐴🐵🐔#adoptdontshop #vegansistersodyssey #vegansisters #lawsonsisters #plantbased #vegan #veganinspiration #travelingvegans #veganblog #consciousliving #crueltyfree #animalrescue #charity #donate #sponsorananimal #mumbai #india #animallovers

This stands out in our minds as one of our favourite spontaneous vegan sister jaunts... Honestly one of the most delicious things we have ever eaten ... ever… Like for real ever, was this vegan berry yogurt from @farmerscafemumbai .
It’s creamy, fruity, sweet but not too sweet, homemade and vegan... What more could two vegan girls ask for? When we saw this special advertised on their instagram page, we knew we had to have it, so off we set for this afternoon delight, and thank goodness we did! Thank you @farmerscafemumbai for always having delicious vegan options and for all your delicious weekly vegan experiments!

This is hands down the BEST burger in Cape Town. It also happens to conveniently be called “ the best vegan burger” on the menu at @schecktersraw . We love vegan burgers, and it is our standard choice whenever it is an option, but this delight stands out. It is so delicious that our non-vegan Step mum had it two nights in a row, as she couldn’t stop thinking about it after the first time she had it. The best thing about this burger, is that it is good for you. We love eating food that makes us feel as good as it tastes. Please, please, please do yourself a favour and try this burger should you ever find yourself in Cape Town. 🍔💖

I’m slightly in love with this face wash... Its pretty packaging and glorious, absolutely heavenly floral smell are just two of the reasons why.
Every time I wash my face with this little treasure I think, “Good Lord, what a product!” You only need one little pump for a general wash, and if your face is a little more dirty or you want to give it a more serious cleansing, then two pumps do the trick. I’m super happy with the results of this face wash, it doesn’t dry out my skin or make it feel tight; I’m left with super fresh supple skin and a glowing, happy heart after washing with this @kamaayurveda rose and jasmine face cleanser.
I have the small bottle with matching rosewater spray - the small bottle is still going strong 6 months later; now that’s what I call value for money!
@kamaayurveda package their products simply but beautifully, and the staff are so helpful and friendly that you just want to buy everything. I completely recommend this cruelty free Ayurvedic face wash to all of you in India! Love Phoebe

What do you order if you don’t drink coffee, don’t feel like another cup of black-caffeine-free-herbal-tea and you’re in wintery, cold South Africa? But you would like something without caffein that is hot, vegan and comforting…

A red cappuccino with plant milk is the new answer to your ordering woes!

It’s made with really concentrated rooibos tea (super good for you) and we have ours with almond milk. A good tip is to ask if they have sugar-free almond or soya milk, if that’s something that’s important to you; but either way, anything is better than dairy milk! Most good restaurants and cute cafes in Cape Town have this on their menu and it’s become our drink of choice this winter. We would love to hear from our SA followers what you think of red cappuccinos?

There is an @angusandjuliastone song that says “ I wish I had a mango tree in my back yard.” We really did used to wish that we had a mango tree, and now we are so lucky to have a huge mango tree right outside our bedroom window in our new apartment. Not only is it insanely beautiful and a wonderful thing to see outside our bedroom window, but it has also very kindly provided us with a bounty of one of our favourite fruits. It is so exciting to pick mangoes from your bedroom window, and eat them straight from the tree! Today we wish that you all have the experience of picking your own food and eating it fresh, at least once in your lifetime.

To be honest, we’ve never been ice cream people. That is, until we discovered @lifeunframed ice cream. In our opinion this is the only ice cream worth eating. We have been known to go on ice cream missions at ridiculous hours of the night, sing unframed icecream’s praises while traveling as other ice cream just falls short, and make everyone in our life, vegan or not, try this ice cream. The general consensus amongst everyone who has had it, is that it really is the best ice cream! 💖🍨 🙌

If you haven’t tried it yet, and you’re in Cape Town, you can find their stores at the waterfront, Kloof street and in Camps Bay.

We’ve been using earthsap deodorants for just over a year now. Using natural products is important, but we feel a natural deodorant is extra important... When you start your shifting-to-natural-product-process, we recommend making deodorant one of your first changes. There are so many studies, old and new, linking deodorants to cancer and other tragedies. When you take the time to read the ingredients of the average deodorant, it's not difficult to see why. Regardless, who wants to absorb chemicals into their blood stream anyway; especially when you can choose not to?

We have been the most happy with this deodorant, of all the natural ones that we have tried. There are a few fragrances to choose from, all of which are very traditional and subtle, but they have all kept us fresh and BO free. Each bottle lasts us from about 4-6 months, which is great value for money.

We got ours from @wellnesswarehouse and have even gifted this deodorant to people we love a few times (not because they are stinky - but because we knew they would appreciate it 😉 ) ... If you try it, let us know your thoughts 😊

Yay it’s Phoebe’s favourite day... FRYday 😁💃🏻🍟
In all seriousness though, fries are a vegan’s best friend, as when all else fails, they’ll be the the vegan option... This big bowl of fries is an example of such an occasion. We stopped for lunch at a one horse town outside of Cape Town, and this was our only option...We weren’t complaining though as it’s one of our traditions when we’re together to eat fries on Friday 😁

If you’re looking for somewhere tranquil and secluded in the hustle and bustle of Mumbai, we recommend @theyogahousemumbai . It’s decorated so beautifully, and we always leave feeling calmer and happier for our time there. They have a few vegan options, and multiple vegetarian things that can very easily be modified and made vegan. We will be posting about this gem and our favourite meal from here again soon.

@thevillageshop is our favourite spot in Mumbai. As we have previously mentioned, we usually have cake from them at least once a week. Well this was a pasta for light lunch day. Easy tomato based sauce with vegetables and chilli. Very tasty. Pasta is generally always a winner for us.... However, we find most portions in Mumbai very small, so we feel you would need to order something nice to drink with this and then of course a vegan sweet treat to finish, to be completely satisfied.
