    So You Started a Blog…

    Literally everyone and their mom is “building a brand”. Which is great, I love seeing people sharing their passions on social media. But scrolling through blogs and Instagram, I see some things that make me cringe. Not in a bad way, it just brings back memories from my early blogging days. We spend a lot of time putting out content, but we don’t spend time talking about meaningful content and how to go about that. … I am by no means an influencer. This is just my advice that’s based on my experiences with creating content. So you started a blog…what’s next and what should you do? Find your niche.…

    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…

    Veganism is a Privilege & Other Thoughts

    It’s time to ruffle some feathers! I am going to talk about the “p” word, so if you are triggered by topics about privilege, then this is your warning. Before I dive into what I want to talk about, I just need to give a little disclaimer. I am vegan and I love this lifestyle and I am not bashing or gossiping about anyone specifically. Moving on… When I was a new vegan, I would get really annoyed when people said that it was too hard and too expensive and all those other excuses. I used to think that any person regardless of economic status could adopt a vegan lifestyle.…

    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…

    How About This Weather?

    An all too common phrase in the Midwest. It’s true, if you want the weather to change, just wait five minutes. But do we have to use this as small talk? I’m not a fan of obligatory conversations. I never know how to respond and most of the time I’m just not in the mood to talk to strangers. However, I can’t help the fact that I am comforted by these monotonous phrases. If someone doesn’t start a conversation with a statement about the weather or doesn’t ask me how I am doing, something feels off. We’ve created these necessary phrases to begin the engagement process. As much as we…

    Misconceptions About College

    Raise your hand if you are scared of going away to college. This time in your life can be extremely stressful. You are expected to pick a career path at the young age of 18 and then people tell you to decide where you are going to spend the next 4+ years. It’s a lot to process. I was so worried about college. People put all of these ideas into my head and it freaked me out. I thought that my classes would be unbearable and I had no idea how I was going to make friends. I started college 3 years ago and it has been quite a journey.…

    You’ll Never Have A Boyfriend Because…

    Can we just stop? Can we stop constantly asking women if they have a boyfriend? Can we stop putting so much value on a person’s relationship status. I am not against relationships and I am not against people who take pride in their relationship. I am simply tired of “well-meaning” strangers asking me why I don’t have a boyfriend. Like you just met me and the only thing you want to know about me is if I am seeing someone. You don’t want to know what I am passionate about or what I am studying or even what my job is. I get the feeling that to some people, my…

    Law of Attraction Update

    The law of attraction is a new(ish) philosophy that basically means that your thoughts and perceptions attract certain energies into your life. I’m not going to get into a complex discussion of vibrations. But I think we can all agree that mindset dictates a lot of our lives. Living in a positive way, attracts more positive energy. Recently, I believed I have manifested certain things into my life and I want to share them with you. To start out with, I believe that the universe is magical and knows what you truly want/need and when you realize that, that is when you can attract good energy (previous manifestation post at…

    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?…
