    My Blogging Journey

    This isn’t my first rodeo. I’ve been blogging for quite some time or at least that’s how it feels. I do not consider myself an expert on all things blogging and honestly, I am not a professional at anything. Over the past couple of years, I have been getting kind comments asking me questions about why I started a blog or asking me if it was hard to start a blog. I don’t know if other people realize how much these comments and messages mean to me. I wrote an article about starting a blog, you can find it here. I should stop rambling now and just get into my…

    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…

    2018 GOALS

    I’m usually not a fan of resolutions. People often break their New Year Resolutions because of unrealistic expectations. However, I think it is important to set goals and trying is always better than sitting on your butt. I want to share some of my goals and maybe it will give you inspiration as well. GOALS… Stop comparing myself to others. Make plans to travel. Write more. Stick with my blog and Instagram. Buy new camera. Get back into minimalism. Continue to spread the vegan message and create more plant-based recipes. Make working out more of a priority. Stay consistent with my school work. Say yes to trying new things. YouTube?…

    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 ⇒   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

    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⇒ 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…

    Baked “Fries”

    Who doesn’t love French Fries?! I love fries, but I don’t love fatty and salty foods. Baked fries are a healthy alternative to traditional fries. First, preheat your oven to 450°. Then, cut one Russet Potato into wedges. Place wedges on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I don’t use a lot of oil when cooking, so I drizzled water over the potato wedges and then added seasoning. I used water because I wanted the wedges to be crispy on the outside, but still soft on the inside. I added garlic powder and cumin (I know it sounds weird). Just use whatever seasoning you like. Then you bake the wedges for…

    I’m all about the animals and I’m all about beauty products. I have recently tried some new products that are of course cruelty-free.

I had some hormonal breakouts and this face wash helped a lot. This product works great and is from a trustworthy and ethical company. Equate Pure Castile Soap This is basically the same…

    A Weekend in Nashville

    I’ve been to Nashville many times, but I go home wanting more each time. Not because it is a bad city, but because I always want to explore it further and it seems I always run out of time. To sum it up, Nashville has great food, great music, and a great atmosphere. You don’t have to have a plan when you go there, you can simply walk down the street and find something to do.       Thanks for reading! _________________________________________ Social Media ♥ Instagram | Tumblr Check out this post!
