GeneralLuLu*s at Vida Vegan Con!

Late last month, LuLu*s was lucky enough to take part in an awesome vegan convention! At Vida Vegan Con, LuLu*s, along wth other exhibitors, had the chance to mingle with our vegan fans and customers in addition to vegan industry favorites! With amazing exhibitors such as Coconut Bliss, So Delicious, Daiya and more. We were able to connect with some of our most valued customers! Here at LuLu*s, we pride ourselves in offering one of the largest selections of vegan shoes and handbags on the web! With a section on the site of quality and cruelty free products, LuLu*s has been able to offer products to all customers, whether vegan or not. Take a look below for some sneak pics of the convention!

For our setup we chose some of our cutest and most colorful vegan shoes and handbags!

We displayed jewelry, brought our most colorful signs and made sure to advertise our amazing Twitter contest (now closed).

Pretty shoes, all lined up!

Bursts of beautiful color! All vegan, all man-made!

Super influential blogger, Sunny, of Vegan Beauty Review! We have worked with this little ray of “sun”shine before and she is such a joy!

We even had several dozen vegan cupcakes customized with our logo! Vanilla and red velvet, yum!

ArtConcept Art from Disney’s Fantasia!

Be whisked back to the land of Fantasia with this beautifully rendered concept art. Fauns, nixies, lyre birds and a herd of pegasus frolic and swim in an enchanted vision that would later become the motion picture.
Rainbow pools and gazebos at dusk are so absolutely stunning; I can only dream of being there.
See a close-up of this gorgeous panoramic here!
Any Fantasia lovers out there?

ArtDispatchwork Teaches Old Bricks New Tricks

 
Colorful, plastic brick by tiny brick, Jan Vormann is brightening the landscapes of the world in a most unexpected, and smile-inducing, way.
 

Toulouse, France


This project, called Dispatchwork, has taken the German artist all over the world, “repairing” (as he calls it) crumbling buildings, monuments, and more with hundreds of LEGOs and the assistance of eager helpers. His inspiration?

“The Lego brick has a nostalgic value amongst different generations worldwide, but at the same time it is all up to date. The combination of stone bricks and plastic bricks creates all kind(s) of different contrasts that, in my eyes, illuminate(s) relationships between aesthetics and functionality.”

Delightful as it is, Vormann’s vision is about more than simply dazzling the eyes of passersby. His work in Berlin, filling bulletholes and other damage left from World War II,  was meant to “draw peoples’ attention to the bright Lego, and hopefully they would ask themselves why the Lego was there.” (Telegraph)
