about go vegga

I’m Kelly, a 30-something vegan trying to make the world a little bit better for having been here. Living a cruelty-free lifestyle is one of the best ways to do that. I’ve been vegan since 2009, and making that change was one of the most meaningful things I’ve ever done.

Part vegan travel blog, part vegan food blog, and part vegan lifestyle blog, Go Vegga proves that being vegan doesn’t mean depriving yourself of exciting travel adventures; delicious, nourishing food; or beautiful, long-lasting products. Have ideas for a recipe you’d like to see or a product you’d like me to review? Just shoot me an email!

When I’m not experimenting in the kitchen, I’m working on craft projects (check ’em out here), reading, or planning my next travel adventure. I live in Maryland with my partner, Steven, and our adopted dogs, Moria (at left below, pictured with Luna) and Rosie. I’m an editor at The Humane Society of the United States, but all opinions in this blog are thoroughly my own.

Thanks for stopping by! Send me an email if you want to connect or just chat about vegan food — I’m always happy to talk!

Affiliate links

Go Vegga participates in a select few affiliate programs, including Amazon Associates. Purchasing items through my links comes at no extra cost or hardship to you, but it does provide me with (very modest) compensation. I use this to cover the costs of my domain. All posts with affiliate links include a disclaimer at the bottom of the page. Note that I only link to products I truly recommend — I have turned down affiliate offers that don’t jive with my ethics.

Product reviews

Unless otherwise noted, all product reviews were initiated by me and are simply meant to help my readers find cruelty-free vegan products. As such, all content is strictly my own and contains my honest opinions. I pay for all products myself unless otherwise noted.

If you represent a company that would like me to review a product, send me an email so we can discuss it! Please note that I will only accept products in exchange for an honest and unbiased review, and I will not review products that aren’t vegan and cruelty-free.

Sponsored posts

As of 12/2017, Go Vegga does not feature sponsored posts. That said, I am open to partnerships with companies that align with my own ethics: fair-trade, worker-friendly, cruelty-free, and vegan. Please email me if you’d like to explore this option. Any sponsored posts will be clearly marked as such.

Giveaways, contests, and sweepstakes

Occasionally, Go Vegga will run a giveaway in partnership with a brand or product I believe in. Unless otherwise noted, I will always pay for the product myself. Although I’ll advertise giveaways on Instagram or Facebook, I’ll never ask you to follow me (or anyone else) on social media as a prerequisite for entering a giveaway — I strongly dislike those “loop” giveaways on Instagram and don’t feel that gaining followers that way is really beneficial.

  2. “Being vegan doesn’t mean depriving yourself of delicious, nourishing food” – love this, Kelly! I’m not 100% vegan but I love making tasty nutritional treats. My mom has been a vegetarian for over 30 years and my partner for the past year or so – so I’m totally on your wave length! I look forward to following you! I found you through One Green Planet ;) x
