As much as I love nail polish, I don't love the toxic chemicals, and animal testing most beauty brands use. But alas! There are non toxic, and cruelty-free products readily available. I think it's high time as a society we move to a more ethical way of living, and free those poor babes in cages. It's like we've been living in the modern dark ages. Here are four non-toxic, vegan brands that have gorgeous colors, perfect for the holidays, with no critters harmed in the making;)

Growing up in San Diego, it was just a given that you spent a lot of time in Baja, Mexico. It was my families go-to vacation spot, and when I was a teen-ager, my entire high school filled the Tijuana bars on the weekends. Needless to say, I fell in love with Mex when I was very young. There's something special about this country, and it gets into your blood. As well as Baja, I've ventured down into the Mainland a few times, but I've never made it all the way to the Yucatán Peninsula. It's now time.
I've been planning a trip to Tulum in 2015, and sourcing boutique hotels. Papaya Playa stole my heart. This place looks like a gem of gems. It's right on the beach, secluded, eco-conscious, with amazing interiors, and the most relaxed vibe around. Plus, the room rates are incredibly reasonable. If you're looking for a Mexican getaway, check out more info on this spot here.

Fashion alert: & Other Stories is now available in the U.S. This offshoot brand from H&M has been around for about a year, and their first stateside store opens tomorrow in SoHo. Their U.S. e-commerce site is already up and running, and it's dangerous. From basics, to faux fur, they've got a great selection of clothing, at very reasonable price points. See all online offerings here.

I'm digging the S/S '15 collection from Zadig & Voltaire. These clothes are fresh, sexy, and a bit edgy. The color palette is awesome, and it's all pretty stylish. Perfect looks for a modern chica wanting to stand out from the crowd (without being overdone). See the full collection here.
