Nikki van Dijk

Every vegan has a “why I went vegan” story. But pro surfer Nikki van Dijk’s story is unlike anyone else’s. In 2014, she hit a reef while surfing Cloudbreak in Fiji, resulting in 16 stiches and surgery. She had only a few weeks to recover before her next contest, so she temporarily went vegan to kickstart her healing. She told The Weekly Review, “After that I thought, ‘Hang on, I do not need anything in my body that doesn’t need to be there.’” With encouragement from her sister—who was already vegan—she went all in, and she says that she’s never looked back and never felt better.

Crissi Carvalho

A full-time fitness model and bodybuilder, online coach Crissi Carvalho is using her gains in the gym to advance animal rights. She’s a proud rescued dog foster mumma and has arguably the best abs on Instagram.

I have been fostering this little brown puppy ‘Poppy’ and she is here with her brother ‘Ozzie’…both are needing adopting. . Ozzie was fed by the previous owner and the 5 other puppies of the litter were left to die…that is why ‘Poppy’ is less than half ‘Ozzies’ size . They were all rescued and are now currently in foster families awaiting adoption . Thou, I must say I suck at fostering and have decided I want to adopt lil ‘Poppy’ (known as a foster failure)…as she is a great fit with my current dog and perfect for our family…and the thought i have to give her up, is stabbing and breaking my as I know she would have the most amazing life with us ⛱. If your looking for a family pooch or interested in adopting a puppy lil ‘Ozzie’ here is looking for a family Contact Linda at @bestfriendsrescue as there are another 4 puppies also requiring new homes and families to LOVE and adopt them . These amazing shots were taken by Diana at @k9photography if you want amazing furbaby photos look her up…she is also currently ‘Ozzies’ foster mum too! #adoptme #adoptnotshop #adoptdontshop #fostertoadopt #fosterdog #rescuedog #Crueltyfree #VeganLife #vegandread #crissicarvalho #animallovers #animal #dog #dogs #puppylove #furbaby #puppy #love

Anna Weatherlake

Anna Weatherlake and her cricketing fiancé Peter Siddle have adopted five dogs and a number of chickens over the years to keep them company. Their brood includes a rather mischievous hen named LaShonda who seems to rule the roost.

Breaking and Entering. LaShonda thinks she’s a dog and doesn’t deserve to sleep outside in her custom-built home. Apparently it’s not good enough for her, despite being the best hen house on planet earth, complete with a spiral staircase, mirrors and perspex windows. Nope, LaShonda wants to be inside at all times. And when she isn’t, she stands in the glassed garden that seperates our bedroom and ensuite and just stares at us. #thankgoditswashingday #chickenontheloose #chook #hen #chicken #LaShonda #Family #FriendsNotFood

Writer and mum of three, Annie Nolan is the brains behind the popular blog Uncanny Annie. Documenting her family life as well as her love for animals, her Instagram page is a constant source of “aww!”

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY from my whole family but particularly our girls! May the world soon fix the inequality, discrimination and gender based violence many women all over the world face and start to celebrate women in all forms and expressions! I also hope that women collectively are able to find the strength to stand up in the face of gender injustice and their voices are able to heard more frequently and fairly. I am so alarmed to have read this week that “at every single stage girls’ and women’s pay is way behind that of boys and men” starting with pocket money! For Pete’s sake – no!- for Peta’s sake, can we do the bare minimum and stop discriminating pocket money?! (Fun/Infuriating Fact: There are more men called Peter leading ASX 200 companies than women.) Have a glorious day women! Don’t take any sh*t! ♀

Tried a new way of doing my brows today! I didn’t use any brow pencil or gel at all, just the @anastasiabeverlyhills brow powder in Ash Brown on a rigid brow brush and drew on some fake brow hairs. What do you think? I think I like it! Plus it only took 1 minute to do… #makeup #brows #anastasiabeverlyhills #mua #motd
