Hey people of America (and otherwise…we love you too) welcome to our new and improved blog!!*cue the applause*

As you all know (or don’t?), we were previously located at but as you see folks, we have mad-skillfully dropped the “wordpress” part leaving you all with a much easier url ! (Also, our old website was kinda janky AF, so hope you enjoy the upgrade as much as we do! #janky)

Anyway, we transferred all the old posts to this website as well, again, making this really tough transition a little easier for all you die-hard thatveganlifedoe fans #loljk

Anyway, enjoy da blog and keep checking back on your girls to see what vegan adventure we’re up to next.


Gossips Girls (Jk jk, just your good ole pals Olie and Bella)



Hey guys!!! Good news! (Or maybe bad news…?) We’re not dead! We are actually currently working with web designers right now to revamp the blog you live and die on: THATVEGANLIFEDOE!!!

So we apologize for the lack of posts lately. In the meanwhile, we are still posting on instagram and posting new vids on youtube  so stay tuned! (And don’t forget about us! #neverletgojack)

Anyway, we’ll post on this blog when the new website is done with the link and all that good stuff. Excited to share it with all of you guys! #yassss

Vegan at Ubatuba Acai- Los Angeles, CA

Other than it being fun to say, “Ubatuba” is actually a place located on the southeast coast of Brazil. Look up photos of this magical tropical paradise (only if you want to get an instant urge to drop all of your life’s responsibilities and locate to a tropical island of course).

Ubatuba acai is this fresh little cafe in the middle of Korea town that only serves empanadas and acai bowls. No you did not read that wrong. Empanadas and acai bowls. My friends and I first saw that like 7 month ago and laughed at how ridiculous that was, but…. then we kept seeing it all over insta, so we were like WE HAVE TO TRY THIS PLACE! (because everything is ridiculous until it’s validated on instagram, duh)


Anyways, this place has the perfect mix of a tropical vibe with a cultural vibe. I got a Spanish vibe, but Brazil is not a Spanish country so idk bra, but it was so relaxing in there. Big windows with lots of light, soothing spa music in the back, loads of acai and empanadas, what else could you ask for in life? Love? I mean who needs love when you have empanadas and acai bowls?! I MEAN, WHO NEEDS LOVE AT ALL!?!?!?!? #Single4Lyfe



Us, with our friend Heather, all ordered the passion fruit acai bowls (I KNOW, PASSION FRUIT) and added some extra toppings such as coconut and kiwi (they have a whole list of extra toppings you can add). Let me tell you friends, IT WAS SO GOOD. It tasted like passion fruit sorbet. And all the acai bowls come in different colored bowls (perfect for insta if you know what i mean).


There were no vegan empanadas left (the samosa one with potato, onions, ginger, green peas, and coriander) but the lady kindly offered to make me a new one fresh! YUS! And that was also so yummy. 


Highly recommend this place. Especially if you need a place to study for midterms where you won’t run into any people from your school that you are desperately trying to avoid (umm….) Anyways, check this place out homies!

Vegan at Zinc Cafe- Downtown Los Angeles, CA

So, sometimes a few bad-ass boss bitches are in the mood for a badass-boss-bitches-brunch so that’s what we did today with our fellow film school friend, Nicole!!

We went to this awesome, modern cool restaurant in Downton Los Angeles (Right up the street from Springs LA-  da vegan restaurant and yoga space). It was so hip and the interior decorating was so zen garden/eco friendly it was definitely vibey. (Did you catch my artsy photo between the trees? #lol #itried)

Surprisingly, for an all vegetarian restaurant, they had almost no vegan options (da fuk?!). I mean, they had bagels w/ avocado, lettuce, & tomato. They also had oatmeal and gluten-free vegan granola but that was about it. I think I saw a possibly vegan thai salad, but not sure. (Da fuk is wrong with you people??) 

For drinks, Bella got a “Zinc Sunrise” which was an orange, raspberry, and something puree. She really liked it. I got a passion iced tea and thought it would taste boring because it wasn’t sweetened, but it was so delicious!!


For the meal, we got the gluten-free granola w/ berries and bananas (in pajamas…holla if you get the reference!) with a side of raisins and brown sugarrrrrr. 


A+ for the interior decorating. The food was great, I just wish they had more options…especially for a vegetarian place…I mean, da fuk!?

Vegan at Blue Ribbon Sushi- Los Angeles, CA

So us and our friendz (yes i have them) decided to go catch a bite to eat before seeing the amazeballs Maze Runner: Scorch Trials at the Grove (If you haven’t seen this movie but love post-apocolyptic movies and Dylan O’Brien’s undeniably attractive face, then GO SEE THIS MOVIE.) 

Anyways, this sushi place is super vibey and cool. They have a whole list of vegetable rolls and vegetable sides which was great. Also, it’s always a plus when hottie Derek Hough is eating at the bar in front of you #truestory.  I legit came late to meet my friends and sat down at the table and then was like “Did nobody notice Derek Hough at the bar?” Everybody was like “Oh my gosh. How did I not notice him?” LOL #LAProblems


Anyways, I got the butternut squash sushi and the un-fried rice. Both were mediocre, not gonna lie, and super expensive. So would I come here again? Probs not. Buttttt, it was right next to the theater in the Grove so that was nice.
