About – Fat Vegan Baby (the Blog)

Fat Vegan Baby (a nickname originally coined for my son) was started in 2011 shortly after he was born.  It is quintessentially a lifestyle blog inspired by the everyday happenings in my life and waxes poetic/neurotic on what’s adding value to my life at the current moment–whether it’s a craft, party idea, yoga pose, storefront, travel destination, or meditation exercise.

About -Fat Vegan Baby (Me)

My name is Jessica Shaool, and this is where I process, share, and revel in my favorite finds, experiences, places, and people, hopefully in a slightly more refined and thoughtful way.  FVB promotes my my best living by allowing me to crystallize and capture life’s extraordinary moments, however subtle, but always changing.

During the work week, I maintain my own real estate brokerage and law practice as an attorney and broker.  I love my work and the fact that I control my hours and time.  When not working, I’m planning Life Projects, which I feature on this blog, and may include crafts/DIY, party planning, healthy meals, family stories, positive psychology, and behind-the-scenes looks at places, people, and events I fancy.

Here’s what continues to delight me on a revolving basis:   art journaling, chandeliers, Martha Stewart glitter, solo piano music, my son and husband, Parisian style, vegan and vegetarian cooking (Note: I am only a part-time vegan/vegetarian with the other part indulging in an occasional filet!), DIY crafts, daily yoga, mood boards, food props, textiles, champagne flights, long brunches with friends, NYC, black and white photography, belly breathing, mixed media, scenic bike-riding, gold wallpaper, Chicago, homemade mail, leather boots, Moroccan lanterns, Christian Louboutin’s, red lipstick, succulents, specialty papers and pens, Paris, high-end candles, Thai massage and reflexology, and my fellow bloggers.

gaellebythesea - Thank you for dropping by earlier into my blog and now following it. You probably did not guess but I was born in France. Somehow I understand your attraction for the Parisian style. French baguettes, pains au chocolat and croissants are the way to go!Have you ever tried other areas like Provence? Also I have discovered an artist based in France on Pinterest called Lili Paris and I have the feeling you may love what she does. have a look here http://pinterest.com/liliparis/. Let me know what you think. Gaelle

Lucie Winborne - Jessica, a much-belated thanks for stopping by my own blog. I love the title of yours. I’ve also experimented with veganism but have not stuck to it longer than a couple of months. From litigation attorney to your present trade(s) is quite the leap!
