    A Vegan Valentine’s Day & Chocolate Cupcakes

    I think I need to give myself kudos on this one because this is a twofer and I am actually getting it up before Valentine’s Day! As the title suggests, I have a cupcake recipe to share. I also wanted to share some vegan-related Valentine’s Day ideas. Although I am single, I don’t despise Valentine’s Day. I think that it can be a time to show gratitude to your loved ones; whether they are a significant other, friend, or family member. Pin This For Later 🙂 I don’t know if I have talked about this here, but I bought a cookbook secondhand and I thought it would be cool to…

    Bitter Cold

    You might think that I’m just some girl on the internet that takes pictures of food. I am, but most of the time you’ll find me outside. I am admittedly – too attached to my camera. Fortunately, I am able to capture beautiful everyday moments and then share them with you all. It’s been a winter wonderland where I live. It seems like magic. Here are some of my favorite and recent photos. More Photography: Winter Spell Saying Farewell to Autumn Autumn’s Beginning Rural Aesthetic I Want to be Great Here are some photos prior to the snow storm. It was still freezing outside, but everything was simple and desolate.…

    Arizona Travel Guide | Part 1

    When you think of popular travel destinations, Arizona doesn’t always come up. I think that should change though. I recently went to Arizona and I truly enjoyed my trip! It is so much more than just a desert and I think there are activities for everyone! This post will cover Phoenix and the surrounding areas along with many of the photos I took. Part 2 will cover Northern Arizona or the “high country”. Unfortunately, I can’t really recommend many Airbnbs or hotels because I stayed with my family. Hiking is really big in Arizona. There is Camelback Mountain which is near Phoenix and Scottsdale. The Superstition Mountains have many trails…

    Holiday Gift Guide

    I’m a little late on this as many of you have probably gotten your loved ones gifts, but I’m sure there are other procrastinators out there! I thought I would share gift ideas that add value and are more mindful. I think that anyone would like these, but these ideas are more targeted toward millenials or for foodies and content creators.  Some of these items are affordable and others are more of an investment. Everyone has a different budget for the holidays, so I’m trying to include things for everyone. Before I get into this, I think I should talk about what intentional living means to me. Some people that…

    Winter Spell

    While I was driving today, I heard Christmas music on the radio and I was truly confused. Then it dawned on me…it’s the first week of December. I just now started working on holiday recipes and I haven’t gotten any presents for my family yet. Definitely need to get it together. … Like I do each month, I’m going to share some photos from November. It’s been bitter cold, so I didn’t take as many as normal. Enjoy! Thank you for visiting my blog! I hope you had a good November and I hope you will have an even better December. Camera Gear: Camera | Lens | Phone

    You Just Went Vegan…What’s Next?

    Welcome to my second coffee chats post, featuring my medium roast coffee with soy milk. I’ve been blogging for quite some time now and I just realized that I have never talked about my vegan journey or given advice to new vegans. I have talked about budgets, benefits and I have many recipes; but I think it’s time to give some unsolicited advice based on my experiences. Spark notes version of my journey… At about 16 years old, I made the decision to be vegetarian. But I wasn’t a strict vegetarian, so I had been vegetarian on and off until I was 20 years old. Around two years ago in January,…

    Saying Farewell to Autumn

    Bye Bye Fall. It has already started snowing where I live, so I think it is safe to say that my Autumn experience is over. It’s been a good time, but I am excited for winter. I thought I would share some fall photos as my way of saying farewell.     I hope you enjoyed these photos. I’m going to miss these fall sunsets. Tell me in the comments something you will miss about Autumn. I recently invested in a 50 mm lens and I am pleased with it so far. I will post my review soon. Most of these photos were taken with my canon eos rebel sl2. Have a…

    October in Review

    “I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” ~ L.M Montgomery | Ann of Green Gables. I had an amazing October! Nothing super special happened, I just enjoyed doing the typical autumnal activities. Going to the pumpkin patch, relaxing, eating pumpkin spice everything – you get the gist. This is my October in review, I hope you enjoy! I hope you like the photos. I didn’t take very many this month because I was busy with school/work and also some personal things. I took these with my phone and also my camera. It’s definitely a moody time of year and that shows! I tried to capture the essence…

    Takers // Coffee Chats

    Welcome to my new series! I always see YouTubers do these posts where they eat/drink and talk about a topic. So I thought I would do that in a written format. Grab some coffee, tea, or whatever you want and join me in this discussion (only if you want to of course). I want to talk about selfishness today. Everyone is a little selfish at times. But I’ve been really frustrated because I feel like I am surrounded by takers. People that are only around you when they want someone. They take, take, and take until you just feel exhausted. They don’t think of how their actions affects you or…

    My Favorite Cruelty-Free and Organic Products

    This isn’t something I typically would post because I loathe shopping. But I haven’t posted about cruelty-free products in a while and I get questions so…here I am, writing about the products I use. I consider myself an ethical vegan, which means that I buy cruelty-free lifestyle and beauty products. If I can afford an organic option then I will also purchase that. It can get expensive, but buying online definitely helps. I also avoid buying makeup, so I save money there. All of these products I am going to share are affordable and add value to my life.
