I just received this yesterday, so I haven't made any of the recipes yet. The book is stuffed full with timely, relevant info about leading a vegan lifestyle - vegan cooking/foods, vegan clothes and footwear, lists of vegan cosmetics companies on the Web, etc. Oh, and crafts, too! All presented in an attractive and fun format. I'm 44 and not all that hip, :), but I really like this book so far, a lot more than I thought I would. It's more like a little reference book for vegans. I wish I had this book 3 yrs ago when I first went vegan. The recipes look great, too, can't wait to try them. (Thank you for including a biscuits and gravy recipe!!)

I just received this book yesterday and I have already read the whole thing! The book is very aesthetically pleasing, with pretty page layouts and nice thick pages. There is basic info on animal rights, vegan nutrition, and how to deal with friends/family, which is to be expected in any vegan book. What sets this book apart is it's focus on things that many other books overlook: makeup, tattoos, and more DIY things like crafts, homemade cleaning supplies, and gardening. Short interviews with prominent female vegan bloggers, business owners and artists are spread throughout the book.

The recipes are a nice mix between simple, quick eats and fancy, impressive entrees. I highly recommend this book and look forward to any other books Melisser Elliott comes out with.

I got my vegan girl's guide to life today! I am ecstatic about the content. The book offers more resources for modern, urban vegan girls than any other source I've encountered. There's everything from a list of vegan cosmetic companies, clothing and shoe designers, and bakeries to recipes, how to stock a pantry, and advice for budget vegans. I can honestly say that this is THE vegan read of the year.

When the title included beauty secrets I assumed that there would be actual beauty tips or maybe even homemade beauty recipes. But there are none, she includes vegan and cruelty free products but I could get that for free from PETA. It feels like every other page has information on some company or blog which feels to me like one big advertisment.

This book would be extremely helpful to someone just starting out in veganism. It gives the reader a lot of really great information and is done in a *really* cute style. I do take issue with the section in the book where Ms. Elliott writes about vegan pets. If a reader wants to feed their dog a vegan diet, I get it, but just because that gels with your beliefs, it isn't necessarily the best thing for your pet. Ms. Elliott states that dogs are purely omnivorous, which, scientifically, isn't true. They are non-obligate carnivores with opportunistic omnivorous traits - I just feel the subject was dealt with too lightly, and people should REALLY do their research on the pros and cons of feeding companion animals vegan diets. Talk to your veterinarian, do your research, and do what is deemed best for your furry family member, whatever that may be. Other than that this book is great to start with, and has really good product lists and other good information.

As a vegan, I was excited to get this book as I've been following Melisser's blog for some time, the book is really informative and does a great job of listing vegan manufacturers and products, but I think the thing that really grabbed my attention with this book was the "beauty secrets" it lists on the cover, nowhere in the book does it list beauty secrets, unless listing manufacturers for vegan makeup is a beauty secret. Also, I was a little put off by the vegan blogger bio's/entrepreneur profiles that took up quite a few pages. If you are familiar with the author as a blogger and follow blogs...than you are more than likely already familiar with all the people it lists. Overall it's a great book and the vegan manufacturer lists and recipes are great, but would of personally like to of seen some real vegan "beauty secrets".

So my copy arrived a few days ago. Of course, I spent the afternoon reading it, pretty much cover to cover. First off, the book is adorable, which makes flipping through the pages (that happen to be thick and glossy and full of color on every page) so much fun. Secondly, Melisser does an awesome job of highlighting vegans from all over the world, from every walk of life. It is so interesting to read their stories. But, don't think that this book is for beginners only, either. Vegans of every level will learn a thing or two from this book. For example, we all do our best to check the ingredients of our foods, and our beauty products, right? Of course we do. We check to make sure our shampoo, our make-up, our toothpaste, our hair dye, even our shaving cream is vegan and wasn't tested on animals. I do too, but I never would have thought to check the actual RAZORS! Melisser has schooled me in my bad shaving ways, and I will no longer buy razors with those little moisturizing strips...becuase guess what? They're not vegan! I wholeheartedly recommend this book. There are tips for just about everything a vegan girl does in her daily life. Not to mention DIY crafts, beauty hints, recipes, and cute little drawings.
