Hi! I’m Tedi. And yes, Tedi is my full name! I get asked that question a lot. Welcome to my blog! From it’s original days as a plant-based food blog, wellnessessay.com has evolved into a true lifestyle blog. This site is all about spreading good around the world and trying to live each day a little kinder, a little gentler, a little happier and a little healthier. Everything you’ll find here will be vegan, and in some way, shape or form, make this world a better place for people, animals and/or the planet.

Some of the things I’m deeply passionate about that you can expect to see on here are: vegan food, vegan fashion, cruelty free living, holistic wellness, animal rescue, adoption, my special needs rescue dog Pani, my rescue bunnies, kindness, love and happiness.

Before I adopted Pani, I fostered lots of dogs and one kitten here in New York City. Volunteering at my local animal shelter and fostering has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.

One of my favorite posts I’ve ever written is In Loving Memory of Cody: 6 Things I Wish I Knew Before I Got a Dog.

The Department Store by Tedi is the newest addition to my site. I created it for the “old me” – someone who loves animals and wants to make kinder choices, but doesn’t know exactly where to start. It’s a curated selection of all the best vegan-friendly fashion from some of the most popular online retailers.

When I’m not blogging I work as a child life specialist at a pediatric hospital here in New York City.

I hope you leave here feeling a little inspired and a lot of love.
