    BEST OF 2017

    What a year! Prepare yourself for a super cliché 2017 post. I’ve been seeing a lot of memes talking about how 2017 was the worst. While they’re very funny, it doesn’t reflect my 2017. I had a great year! I went on some trips, had fun with my friends, read good books, saw the solar eclipse, started my vegan journey, got a fulfilling job, volunteered, and so many more things. I have more goals for 2018 (post coming soon), but now I would just like to take time to reflect on my year. Enjoy some of my favorite photos from 2017, my top posts of 2017, and my “best nine”…

    December Captures

    December is an odd month. Everyone prepares for the holidays and then there’s always an awkward few days between Christmas and the new year. My December started out with finals and then I went to my parent’s house for a few weeks. I went back and forth for Christmas parties. I felt very busy, but the month went by quickly. If you have been keeping up with my blog, then you know that I am passionate about veganism and I am a foodie. But I am also interested in nature photography. To celebrate the end of December, I thought I would share photos I have taken in December. All of…

    Vegan Christmas Dinner

    Eat, drink, and be merry! I hope everyone is having a fantastic holiday season. My Christmas was filled with Christmas movies, vegan food, and laughter (from my family making fun of me). I’ve been very lucky because my family spoils me with vegan food. We didn’t have traditional holiday food this year, we just made our favorite dishes/appetizers. I know this post is a little late, but I wanted to share the recipes. I started out by making Potato Pancakes (Latkes). I was inspired by a recipe I found on Yummly, the recipe app. Here is the original recipe: vegnews Ingredients you will need: 3-4 russet potatoes (peeled and shredded). 1/2…

    Sick During the Holidays

    During the holiday season, it seems like there are always a few unlucky individuals that get sick. This year, I was the unlucky person. A few days ago, I had a gross stomach virus. Fortunately, I got over it fairly quickly. I want to share some things that helped me and hopefully they will help you get healthy before Christmas parties/dinners. 1. Drink Fluids This is probably the most important (and obvious) step if you are sick. It is really common to become dehydrated from a stomach virus or other sickness. Drinking tons of water will restore balance to your body and will reduce fatigue. I became dehydrated from my…

    Blogging on iPhones

    Since I have been growing my blog, I have compared myself to bloggers with more views and followers. Sometimes I get caught up in it and I think that I must have the newest macbook and the newest camera to have a successful blog. This is absolutely not true. For the most part, I have been growing my blog via smartphone. I am no expert, but I thought I would share some things that have helped me. Utilize the right apps These are some of the apps I use to enhance my blog. VSCO is for photo editing. It is way more professional looking than just using Instagram filters. You…

    Vegan Advice: Supplements + iHerb

    Should you take vitamins and supplements as a vegan? Some people say that you should only get your vitamins through your diet and food. I used to be like this as well. It is very possible to get all of the necessary nutrients through food, even on a plant-based diet. However, incorporating vitamins into your routine can improve your health even more. I avoided vitamins for around 6 months (as a vegan). My blood work was great and I didn’t have any deficiencies (even b12). But I had moved into my dorm and I noticed, I was more prone to sicknesses and I would get tired more easily. Even after…
