    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…

    Ethereal // iPhone Photography

    ETHEREAL ~ of or relating to the regions beyond earth. Celestial, heavenly, unworldly, and spiritual. I’ve been really inspired by this concept and it has manifested in my photography. I mostly share the photos I have taken with my camera, but I like how some of my recent iPhone photos turned out and they (in my mind) fit the ethereal aesthetic. A little bit ago, I wrote a post about taking quality photos with a smart phone. Well…I somehow accidentally deleted that and it’s not even in my trash folder. So think of this as round 2. Please enjoy my photos and tips! The best camera you can have is…

    I Want to be Great

    We all want to, right? We all want greatness and we all want to be successful. But what happens when you get too caught up in it? Perfectionism in combination with impatience can be debilitating at times. I am usually driven and this is partly because I strive for flawlessness. Not flawlessness in a beauty sense, but I hate mistakes and they easily upset me. On the other hand, focusing on goals and aspirations typically gives me more energy. I enjoy hard work and achieving goals I set. The pros, for the most part, outweigh the cons. What happens when they don’t? At times, it can seem like too much.…

    Summer Goals

    My semester is officially over and I am looking forward to my summer break. On the rare occasion that I have free time, I like to write down my intentions or goals at that moment. Here is what I wrote down for my “summer goals”: Have fun! This is an obvious one, but I often need to remind myself to not take things so seriously. Take day trips. I don’t have any trips planned, but I would still like to go on smaller trips or spontaneous road trips. Post once a day on my vegan Instagram account. I typically post every two days, but it’s becoming more serious now so I am…

    AUTOPILOT

    When you just can’t deal… I gave up my control. I’ve let life just happen. I’ve sat back and allowed co-pilots to steer me. This sounds great, right? Just sitting back and relaxing. Let me tell you, it hasn’t been great. For the past few weeks, I have done the minimum. I go to school, I go to work, I sleep, I eat, and I repeat this process every day. I’m doing the minimum, but I still feel like there’s not enough time in the day. There was a time when I wanted to do everything. And I basically did ‘do everything’. I over programmed myself. I became so involved…

    A Vegan in Kansas

    I basically live in the middle of nowhere. I am not exaggerating. I could drive 10 minutes and end up in a field. I don’t consider veganism “hard” or “unrealistic”. However, it can be a challenge sometimes when you live in Kansas (or any Midwestern state). I see a lot of “eat beef” license plates and finding options at restaurants can be difficult. This post is based on my experiences and I hope it gives you some useful tips, especially if you live in a not so vegan friendly area. Basic diary free oatmeal with fruit on top Asking for substitutions is super important. Just set aside your anxiety and…

    22 Things in 22 Years

    I am officially 22 years young! Yes, I am that annoying person that announces their birthday. It might be the day after my birthday when I post this. Anyway, I have seen a lot of posts about “things I have learned in…” insert number of years.  Adulting is one giant teachable moment. Most of my learning experiences have come from the past few years. Without further ado, here are 22 things I’ve learned in 22 years. It’s not the end of the world. It might seem like a big deal, but it’s probably not. Life goes on and you will overcome it. Follow your passions. Life is too short and you shouldn’t…

    Food Photography: March Compilation

    You could say that one of my hobbies is food photography. I guess that makes me a hipster. Anyway, I am constantly learning about what makes a good “food photo”. On my blog–I typically share vegan, lifestyle, or nature related posts. But, I rarely share about the topic of food photography. I thought I would share recent food photos and some advice I’ve learned. For those of you that are interested, here are my food photos from last month: As you can see, there is still room for improvement. However, I have learned a good amount about the subject. Lighting is always important in photography, but even more so in…

    March Captures

    “It was one of those March days when he sun shines hot and the wind blown cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.” ~ Great Expectations. March was fine, but now it is April AKA my birth month! This is part 2 of my March Captures. Look at Part 1 Here. I’m just going to jump right in. Here are my photos from the month of March. You might notice that there isn’t very much color, that is because nothing has bloomed yet where I live. Sorry if you like vibrancy. I hope you enjoy these photos. Tell me about your March in the…
