    This Month in Food Photography: July

    It’s that time again! Time for me to share my food photos, because I’m that person. I used to eat food, but now I just take pictures of it. Just joking, I still eat my food (30 minutes later). People seem to enjoy these posts, so I am continuing this series! Since I’ve settled into my new place I have kept a fairly consistent layout/background, in the past I was all over the place. It’s definitely not perfect, but I am liking how my photos turn out most of the time.   Here are all my food photos from July! I typically do a darker background and minimal props. I…

    Pasta 3 Ways // Vegan

    I have said it before and I will say it again, “I LOVE CARBS”. The two best things about being vegan are 1) I don’t cause harm to animals and 2) I eat as much pasta as I care for. Pasta can be a versatile and simple dinner. I wanted to share my three favorite ways to have pasta. These will be great for you if you are short on time or just wanting comfort food. Pin This ↓♥ The first is Hummus Pasta. This might sound weird, but I promise it is so creamy and delicious. Basically, you cook your preferred pasta according to the package instructions. I typically use…

    The Best So Far…

    “It won’t get much better than this”. It’s great to those moments that stop you in your tracks. You fall silent because you don’t want to ruin perfection. You start to realize that life is full of growth and change, hardships and good days, and everything in between. “We all tend to see our bodies as ‘frozen sculptures’ – A sold, fixed, material object – when in reality our bodies are more like rivers, constantly changing, flowing patterns of intelligence.” ~ Dr. Neal Houston. This doesn’t necessarily mean our physical bodies. We are not stagnant in life even when we feel stuck. I guess what I mean by all of…

    Don’t Call Me “Honey”

    I hate being called “honey”, if you couldn’t tell from the title of this post. I could tackle this issue from a feminist perspective, but today I am actually going to discuss why you shouldn’t use honey as a product and this relates to the language we use. Honey is bee excrement, so why call someone that? Yes it is sweet, but it comes with a steep price. Most honey sold in supermarkets is so processed that it doesn’t even have nutritional benefits (barely any pollen). This is why some people choose to consume raw honey. While this may be more nutritious, it still hurts the bee populations. In all…

    Goodwill Finds | Part 3

    I might be addicted to thrifting. I guess it’s better than buying into mass consumerism. I recently moved and instead of buying expensive and uninteresting pieces, I have been going to thrift stores to find things for my place. While I try to avoid buying too many possessions, I like to buy secondhand because it is more environmentally conscious. If you are a blogger or instagrammer then you can also look for props or supplies at thrift stores. If you are on a budget or trying to reduce your environmental impact, you might consider buying more things secondhand. In this “part 3”, I got dishes, a tray, and storage containers…
