5 of My Favorite Vegan Blogs & Websites

Hi everyone! Going off of last week’s post about me going vegan for my 3 Months of Wellness, I wanted to do a quick secondary post on what my favorite vegan/sustainable blogs, websites, and businesses are. I personally value each of these websites and businesses, and I think that they could also bring value to your lives if you’re inspired to live a more holistic, sustainable, and vegan lifestyle! Keep reading below to see my list of faves!

Veganism & Why it’s My Chosen Diet

Since May is the first month of my 3 months of wellness, I think one of the first things that I need to work on is my diet. Now, I’m not saying that my diet is bad; for a college student without extra money to spend on extra food, especially since I have a food plan with my sorority, my diet is decently healthy. But I have had a hard time sticking to the diet that I really want to be on. And what is that diet?

3 Months to Wellness

Now that school is coming to an end for the year and summer is about to begin, I decided that I wanted to start my “summer of wellness” (at least that’s what I’m calling it. Of course, these 3 months could be taken out of any time of the year, but since I’ve been so busy with university and other work (like trying to effectively run this blog) it’s hard for me to find time to focus completely on my well-being. I think that in Western culture we have the tendency to ignore personal health to get ahead in our careers or by focusing on outside aspects of life (and yes, I know, this is pretty well known in the wellness universe). I know that in my own life, with juggling school, creating a future career, and also managing a social life, I fall into the constant trap of ill-health due to stress and overworking myself. I know that I’m still going to have responsibilities this summer (like a job and two online summer courses) …

Why You Need to Start Practicing Ayurveda

Since about September of 2017, I really started to think about if there was a way (or ways) that I could prevent future disease, while also being my healthiest self in the present. I’ve been a vegan/vegetarian for the last 3 years, depending on whether I was at university or not, but I still felt like there was something more that I could be doing.

March Bullet Journal Update

This week I’m going to keep it simple when it comes to my post because I’ve been super busy with midterms over the last two weeks and working on my freelance jobs. I didn’t want to leave y’all hanging though! So here is a quick and easy bullet journal update for March (& today’s the 1st, which is crazy!). Let me know what y’all think about this month’s layout and comment below on your own designs for this month! (I’ve also added a couple new collections as well to my bujo). I’ve added four new collections to my bullet journal after my February layout. In the first layout, I’ve decided to revisit the goals that I set for myself in 2018 and see if there were any that I wanted to change or add. I think that it’s important to put the new year in perspective after the first two months so that you know what you should really be expecting from your experience and confirm what goals are really attainable and meaningful to you. …

February Bullet Journal Update

Hey y’all! So this week I wanted to do two posts because I wanted to give you a bullet journal update but also still wanted to write something with a little more substance. But since I love to bullet journal, and finished my February log a little early, I wanted to make sure and show y’all since so many people liked my last one (if you’re interested in seeing my last bujo post click here). I’m still experimenting with layouts and design, but my weekly set up is definitely what I like; I’m just still trying to find the perfect monthly log layout. I hope you guys like it and don’t forget to comment down below so I know what you all think!
