5 things to keep in mind when going (back) to the gym

I’m going to the gym again. A lot.

I used to go every day when I was living in New Orleans, and for some reason when I came back, I just stopped. It’s been almost two years, but I’m back.
In order to make sure I do everything right I asked for help from a good friend of mine. She’s studying to get a trainer certificate and helped me make sure my posture/exercises are safe and set up a plan.

But now that I’ve been going for a couple of weeks there are a few things I’ve noticed. Things we all need to keep in mind when getting back into old habits (or when we’re just starting new ones). I think these tips are applicable to any new healthy habits you’re trying to adopt. So be sure to use them in any way you want or that suits your current situation, whether you’re going to the gym, eating healthier or trying to adopt a positive mindset.Read More »

Vegan favorites: London Edition

Anyone who knows me, knows I love London. It’s a love that’s existed from the very first time I went there with my parents. Since then I’ve visited London at least once a year, every year and I still love it when I get there. There’s always new things to discover, places that inspire me or people to meet. It is my dream to one day move somewhere just outside of London and be able to enjoy the city whenever I can. London truly is the only place I’ve ever felt at home.Considering my love for the city it’s crazy to think that I haven’t written a post about vegan food in London, yet. There’s just so much to mention! But, I’ve finally gotten to it. It’s a long one, but I just had to show you all the great places. I hope you enjoy, and let me know where you went or want to go in the future. Read More »

Vegan Favorites: Disneyland Paris Edition

Just two days ago I came back from Disneyland Paris. I LOVED it.

After coming back I figured I should put up another “vegan favorites” blog for my vegan travel series. It’s hard to really call these foods “favorites” as Disneyland Paris is notoriously ill-suited for vegans (but for the sake of maintaining some coherence in this vegan-travel-series the title remains).
It is perfectly possibly to visit Disneyland Paris as, or with, a vegan. You just have to know where to go and what to get.

Back To Me

A little while ago, I let go of some people that had played a big role in my life. It wasn’t that they did something to hurt me. It was just that, over time, I started to realize they were adding more negativity than joy to my life. While this was definitely the right thing to do, letting go of people who you have been around for a long time is taxing. Over time you learn to identify yourself by the people you hang out with. You start wondering whether you were a bitch for no longer investing time and effort into someone who didn’t purposely hurt you and who’s been with you for so long. You never thought you would do something like that. After days, weeks, months even, you still wonder whether you did the right thing.Read More »
