About Two Vegan Girls!

Hi, I’m Sarah! I’m 21 years old, a Scorpio and an ethical vegan. I live with my partner and our 2 moggies Nico and Chico (above)-I assure you, I did not intend for my furbabies to have rhyming names! Nico was named for the Velvet Underground & Nico and Chico came named when I adopted her from a cat rescue charity. She was named Chico baby and her brother was named Licorice! I’ve always loved animals and fondly remember my mum domesticating stray cats on the farm when I was young. I think that’s where my crazy cat lady tendencies originate from, but hey I have a boyfriend so I’m kinda not at that crazy level yet, right? Well that’s what I tell myself anyway... 

I’m currently studying a Bachelor of Primary Education as education is another passion of mine, although not solely aimed at children as I do believe you are never too old to learn new and especially kinder ways of living life to its fullest. I love old music-the Doors, the Beatles and Cream are my favourites although I also have a penchant for Jeff Buckley.

Hi, I'm Alicia and I’m a 20 year old Virgo. Like my sister, Sarah, I’m also vegan. Above is my beautiful cat, Millie. She hates being picked up, but loves to fall asleep on or against me. If I go out for a while, she’ll often do ‘mother calls’ at my bedroom door. The family, whose cat gave birth to Millie and her siblings, were sadly going to kill them all until Mum said she’d take ‘the little black & white kitten’. That little black & white kitten is now a gorgeous spoilt 11 year old cat. I’m not too sure if the other cats were adopted, but I really hope they were.

I’m currently studying to become a Make-Up Artist, to which I am going to use cruelty-free cosmetics and tools on my clients. I love anything creative; make-up, fashion, music, movies, jewellery design... well, you get the idea! I'd been vegetarian for about a year before I become vegan. The book, Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin changed everything for me. 

Anyway, we hope you enjoy our blog!
