Yes sirs and madams, your favorite blog, The D-Bizzle got a major shout out on! Vaute Couture's Leanne Mai-Ly Hilgart, this month's gorgeous VegNews cover-girl was recently interviewed on In that interview, she shouted out The DB, and then featured images from the upcoming menswear lookbook. Yours Truly and the heart-throb vegan model, Jayce Alexander Basques are hanging out in Brooklyn in this image at a thrift store. I am riding a tricycle (my main form of transportation) and Jayce is clearly impressed by my ride. Although we are not really "feminine and flirty" as the title on suggests, the rest of the images featuring Vaute's amazing winter coats for women, certainly are. Check out my original article on the Vaute Menswear from fashion week, and our video interview with Leanne!

Jayce and I had some time to catch up in San Francisco this past week, and we made a very healthy breakfast of a stack of vegan donuts and soy-lattes from Ritual Coffee Roasters on Valencia. There was cinnamon-sugar, maple, blueberry, and coconut. Oy vey!

In addition to stuffing my face, I finally got to meet my sister Joelle's rescued pooch, Lina! She is a clever, pretty and loving little gal! It took her about 25 minutes to warm up to me, but by the end of the week I was getting kisses on the face. She was found wandering the streets, pregnant and terrified, but is quickly turning into a trusting friend despite her scary past. If you have room in your house and heart, or are thinking of getting a companion animal, please adopt and rescue. It will be an amazing and uplifting experience for you and your new friend.
