I have a challenge for you (yes, YOU!) . In honor of #SeniorPetMonth 🐶🐱, take a minute to google your local city shelter. Search 🔎 their adoptable animals and find a senior pet. Share his/her photo and info on social media (Facebook, your IG story, wherever you can) for all your local friends and family to see! So many people forget to even consider adopting an older pet, despite the fact that they're much more in need, they're a smaller commitment than a puppy/kitten, and their adoption fees are usually much lower! Too often, on photos of desperate shelter pets, I see comments like, "I'd love to save her, if only I were closer!"; let's remind the world that there is ALWAYS a "closer" animal in need of love ❤️. Let me know when you're done (and feel free to tag a friend)!

ONE LAST "IMPERFECT" SALE TONIGHT! Starts at 6 pm PST / 9 pm EST at ✨✨! As I finish closing out inventory, I'm doing one last flash sale for all the slightly flawed or damaged items. I'll be counting it up and showing some items on my IG story throughout the day, so be sure to take a look! And set your alarms ⏰ if you'd like to place an order!
I'm finally starting to work on my vegan wedding blog post 🌱👰🏼!! Thanks to the phenomenal photos by one of my new favorite humans, @meiganphoto, I have a lot of material to work with. Do you have any specific questions about planning a cruelty-free celebration? Please let me know!!

✨UPDATE!! Tabitha has been FOUND!!✨ My longtime friend and hero, Piper of ✨@handinpaw✨, needs our help! She recently rescued this very abused (and thus very scared) pup 💔🐶. Unfortunately Tabitha's fear of humans was so strong that she broke out of her foster home, and has been lost for days now in Monrovia, CA (approx 45 min 🚗 East of downtown Los Angeles). She has been spotted 🔎 MANY times in the area, but she continues to evade her rescuers. TONIGHT ‼️ Piper and some volunteers will be coordinating a search of the area at 9 pm (when Tabitha has been active). If you're in the area, PLEASE 🙏🏼 consider helping out! The more eyes, the better. If you can help out, please meet at the Starbucks at Foothill & Primrose in Monrovia at 9:00 ⏰ to receive instructions.

As I get closer to finishing up The Tree Kisser shop, my mind is racing with ideas for the future, both for new businesses and for my social media direction. At this point, all I know is I plan to get back to sharing more information, ideas, stories, and tips to help all of us move away from harming animals and towards a more compassionate future 🐮❤️. This could include everything from details about non-profits 💸, calls to action 🙋🏼 for events, plant-based meal inspiration 🍝🌮, photos of companion animals in need of rescue 🐶🐰🐱, and recommendations for cruelty-free fashion & products. Is there anything YOU specifically would like to see more of? (photo 📷 of a #vegan quiche I made recently with @followyourheart eggs, @followyourheart provolone, @fieldroast apple sage sausage, broccoli, mushrooms, garlic and red onions)

So, I got married 12 days ago 😍. It was the wildest, most magical and surreal day of my life. I won't pretend the road getting there was easy (or unstressful), but the actual event was more perfect than I could've imagined. I don't know how this weird girl 🙋🏼 who worries about cold squirrels 🐿 and confused butterflies 🦋 found a boy who does the same. Once we have all the professional photos and video, I plan to write up a full blog post about creating a wedding that doesn't harm any animals (I have so much advice!), but until then, here are a few snaps from my friends ❤️. Now that this crazy adventure is over, I can't wait to get back to normal(ish) life and, most importantly, to figuring out how best to use my talents to help animals in the future!

If you follow my IG stories, you may have seen a while back that I discovered a box of forgotten inventory 🤷🏼‍♀️! It contained these unisex tees featuring my old "Be Remembered" design. They're great to cut ✂️ into muscle tops or leave as is. I snapped some pics today and this top is now available to purchase as part of the closing clearance sale! Made in America 🇺🇸 on a 70% bamboo 🍃, 30% organic cotton tee. Only $18 until they run out! Fewer than 100 available.

Why does Maya look so scared of me 😂? As most of you know, I've been MIA while prepping to get married to this guy (in 11 days!!!), but I do still have some inventory left; many prices were further reduced tonight (watch 👀 my story for info). On another note, VOWS. We're writing our own, and I haven't started yet. Any tips?? 👰🏼🤵🏼❤️ (photo by @meiganphoto)

To help the countless animals who have been lost, injured, or abandoned during Hurricane Harvey 💔, I'm donating 10% of all #thetreekisser summer sales to groups helping to rescue 💪🏼 these non-human victims. June's gift was sent to ✨@dallasdogrrr✨, who coordinated the rescue of the pups pictured here 👆🏼 that were stuck in a shelter that wasn't predicted to flood. July's gift went to ✨@austinpetsalive✨, an organization that's partnering with other experts to care for lost pets as well as actively rescue those stuck behind. August's 10% will be split between the two groups to help them keep up the incredible work! Please take a look at both of their pages and send support in any way you can ❤️.

If you're still hoping to grab some #thetreekisser apparel before it's gone forever (😭), be sure to watch my IG story to find out which designs/sizes are almost sold out! Hint: it's quite a few. Whatever's left in a few days will be put into a clearance sale, so if you've had your heart set on something, don't wait much longer! (PS: infinite thanks to those of you who have placed orders already. You're the best and you're making this so much easier for me ❤️)

Sorry I've been so MIA since the big closing announcement! Honestly, I took a little time to just breathe, cuddle my pups 🐶, catch up on wedding planning 👰🏼 (IT'S SO HARD!) and work on my pollinator garden 🐝🌺. But tomorrow I'm getting back to work 💪🏼 and will be posting to my IG story about which remaining designs/styles are almost sold out! Just to make sure those of you with your heart set on something are able to grab it before the clearance sale. To all of you who have sent supportive messages, emails, and comments...words can't express my gratitude and appreciation! ❤️❤️❤️ (engagement photo by the fabulous @meiganphoto)

As I work on winding down my business, I find myself thinking about the people who made this adventure possible. One such person is the radiant ✨@iamsunshine78✨, a fellow apparel designer and animal advocate, shown here wearing a Tree Kisser design while feeding a rescued calf at @animalaid_india 🐮. Without Brenda's initial guidance, encouragement, and willingness to answer every annoying question I incessantly emailed her, there's honestly no way I could've gotten started. Ever since I presented her with my idea in September 2013, she showered me with enthusiasm. She helped me set up wholesale accounts 📋, figure out the postal system 📫, and understand different methods of screen printing. Despite having a "competing" business (not that we ever really treated each other that way), she took time to post selfies in my shirts and promote my work online. She joined me at events where the heat, exhaustion, and physical labor far exceeded our expectations, without a single complaint. And I'm pretty sure I've never even publicly thanked her- at least not to the degree she deserves. People ask me constantly for advice about starting a business, as though I might have some secret magical answer to make it easier...but really, much of my success comes from straight up luck. In this case, my luck came in the form of a friend who never stops helping, never stops giving, and never even asks for anything in return. If you have one of those, you're off to a great start! Infinite love and thanks Brenda, every order I ship out and every dollar I donate is made possible because of you ❤️.

So, I have some news. After nearly four years in business, I'm preparing to close The Tree Kisser shop. There are quite a few reasons, many of which I'll be elaborating on in my IG story tonight and in the coming weeks. The short version is, I'm just ready to move on. This business has allowed me to donate 💸 nearly $50,000 to animal rescue & advocacy groups 🐶🐱🐷, which has been AMAZING and humbling, but I'm eager to contribute in a more substantial and multifaceted way. I've also just lost some interest in the design & marketing side of things; what used to excite and challenge me no longer does, and that's not fun for any of us. I am so so so so SO grateful for the support you've shown over the years; it never stops feeling surreal or blowing my mind. You should know I won't be disappearing, I'll just be shifting my social media back to advocacy and activism 💪🏼 and away from advertising. Of course eventually I'll have a clearance sale to get through the remaining inventory, but in the meantime if there's anything you've been waiting to buy, I suggest grabbing it now! No new inventory will be coming in, and once prices drop, options will quickly disappear. I'd also love my final donation to be as impactful as possible! I'm sure many of you will have questions so feel free to ask, just know it might take a while to reply to everything. I don't really know how to end this aside from just saying...THANK YOU ❤️❤️❤️.

When life throws me problems, which it's been doing a lot of lately, I remind myself that Jon Stewart and his wife Tracey run a farm sanctuary for rescued animals & that makes everything better 😍. (photo 📷 by my hero @weanimals)
