    Coming to an End

    Well, my summer is over. I am excited to be back at school, but I am going to miss my summer break. I had a perfect summer. I traveled and I relaxed. I reflected and I spent time with meaningful people. It could not have been better!   “Live in the sunshine. Swim in the sea. Drink in the wild air.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson.   I made a video compilation of my summer, check it out here ⇒ https://youtu.be/fLFI82xTRjU   Thanks for reading/watching! ___________________________________________ Social  Media ♥ Instagram | Tumblr | Follow my blog with Bloglovin Other posts to check out ~ The Sunflower State Chasing Sunsets Savannah Travel Guide Advertisements

    Fruit: Vegan Advice

    Welcome back to my second post in my vegan advice series! I am addressing fruit today. I cringe when I hear “diet experts” say that you should only eat fruit in moderation. Or that certain fruits are unhealthy because of their glycemic index. As a vegan, these statements just make me laugh. I eat tons of fruit as do a lot of people and I have never had negative experiences from it. If anything eating large amounts of fruit has my improved energy, skin, and health in general. I know that not everyone agrees with veganism or a plant-based diet, but eating more fruits and vegetables is not a detriment…

    Over It

    This phrase is common among millennials. “I am over it” or “So over it”. While this has a negative connotation sometimes, I feel it can be positive in certain ways. Moving on from things that don’t suit your life can be extremely beneficial to your mental health.  Sometimes it’s just easier to say that you are over it. Enjoy my week in pictures! All photos in this post were taken by me. I was taking a walk and taking pictures when I thought about this. Literally everything used to bother me. I would get upset about the dumbest things. I don’t know when it started, but I eventually just kept…

    Vegan Advice: Dorm Rooms

    Many people think “going vegan” is hard and I have noticed that a common reason/excuse is college. As a vegan and a college student, I feel I can offer some advice for other vegans in college or people in college wanting to eat more plant-based. I also made a youtube video of some advice and a grocery haul so please check that out also⇒https://youtu.be/hCk-GMHoy8k. Buy a crate for packaged and dry goods Most dorms don’t have a full kitchen or if they do, you are not allowed to keep your food in the cabinets for long periods of time. I suggest getting a crate or box to put food that…

    Current Nutrition Favorites

    I’ve always prioritized my health. Lately, I have valued healthy living even more. I want to share some of my nutrition favorites. Keep in mind that I am vegan and my dietary needs might be different than yours. Do what you think is best based on your diet/lifestyle. Zinc Because I eat only plant foods, it is sometimes harder to obtain metals such as Zinc. I started taking zinc because I was experiencing breakouts on the face even though there were no changes in my skincare routine or nutrition. If you are suffering from non-hormonal breakouts on the face; it could be an indication of low Zinc, Vitamin A, or…

    Start Your Day Off Right

    We all have heard a million times how important it is to start your day off  “right”. I was never a morning person. Recently, I have made it a priority to wake up on time and develop good morning habits. Getting a positive start truly makes a difference! Drink Water! We hear this all of the time, but how many of us actually drink enough water in the morning? You have to remember that you haven’t had any water for at least 8 hours. Drinking an appropriate amount of water in the morning helps digestion and also gives us energy to tackle the day. Water can also reduce blemishes and dark…

    BLOCK

    Sometimes I am just tired. I can’t post new and “deep” content all of the time. I like posting meaningful personal essays, but I have been drained and uninspired lately. All of my pictures are turning out the same and I sound like a broken record. I can’t produce what is going on in my head. You might have noticed that lately I have been posting recipes and other “fluff” content. There is nothing wrong with these posts, but it is all I can do at the moment. While I’ll still be posting, I am going to take more breaks. I have so much planned for the next few weeks.…
