A Beginners Guide to Plant-Based Eating

Hey y'all!

I started a plant-based diet in January of this year (2017 if you're reading this 100 years from now). My skin has cleared up, my body feels a lot better, and I actually know how to cook now!

P.s. I might be making a cookbook for my readers about all of my fave new recipes!

Even though my mom and boyfriend think I'm a "crazy" vegan, I'd like to think I do an okay job of not pushing my beliefs onto other people. I know how off-putting it can be when someone asks you "omg why are you eating meat???" 100 times a day.

But now I also know what it feels like to be asked: "omg how do you NOT eat meat and dairy???" 100 times a day. Both are very very annoying.

Enough rambling from me though, you're here to learn about how to live a healthier and happier life!

Easy Budgeting Tips for College Students

Hey y'all!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard a college student calling themselves broke, then I wouldn't be a broke college student myself. Your early twenties is the time when you get to learn about a not-so-wonderful thing called a budget.

Although a large majority of us are still under mom and dad's wing, we still have to mostly fend for ourselves. Some of us learn the hard way when we run out of dining dollars only a month into the semester, and then there are those of us who very wisely choose to use our money to do laundry instead of going to the bar for the fifth time this week. (even if there are $3 shots)

I'm definitely a mix of the two. I don't waste my money on dominoes every night, but I've had a few times where I've held my breath while scanning my debit card. It's all about balance, right?

What Not to Pack for College

Hey y'all!

I'm sure we've all seen the typical campus checklists for freshman going to college. Dorm life is exciting, but it's always important to keep in mind that the rooms are fairly small. I was lucky enough to live in apartment style dorms so I had a big room to myself, but most college students don't!

Since you have limited space, you really don't want to take stuff that you won't use. If you feel like there's something you actually do need, you can purchase it when you're already at school. I'm here to help you with what you 100% won't need to take to college with you. You can thank me later.
