Calling out to other vegans!

I hope this message finds you happy and inspired! I’m always on the look out for new blogs, fun food and other vegans to share stories, finds, new ingredients and, of course, amazing recipes. So, I had an idea!

The vegan community has been an incredible source of motivation and support when I became vegan, and still is now. I love stumbling on new blogs, and I feel really happy that more and more people are switching to this more respectful way of living.

So, I would like to invite you to share your stories: why did you become vegan? What was difficult about the switch? What was fun? What are your tips for new vegans? I would also love to see what your go-to recipe is: if you had to live on only one recipe, what would it be? What is one recipe every vegan should try? What is one ingredient you always have in your kitchen?

I would love to read your stories and discover your recipes, but I would also love to share them here, on my blog. Here are a few guidelines: your post should be maximum 350 words, and include at least 1 picture. Make sure you include your blog’s name if you have one, and if you don’t, well don’t worry about it! I would love to start posting your posts next week, so get on writing!

If you are interested in participating, send me a message using the contact form, and I’ll get back to you! I can’t wait to read your posts!

 

Organization tip: Bullet Journal!

A few weeks ago, I came across a video on bullet journals. I was instantly hooked and wanted to start one right away. I still did a little bit of research, mainly here and here, before heading to my go-to paper store. There, I found a on-sale notebook and some ink for my fountain pens.

Then I took some time to think about the different categories that I needed, and the ones that were suggested that I didn’t really need. I also wanted to know how I would organize each section so that it made sense, was accessible and, most of all, EASY! This was really important because I wanted this to work out since I like the idea of journaling every day and keeping a trace of my life as it passes.

Now that I have started on this, I love it! I really like how flexible it is to add rubrics, keep track of things to do as well as fun things. I realized that I didn’t need to follow all of the things that ‘true’ bullet journals use, but that’s the fun of it too: you can easily make this system your own!

Let me know what you think of this, and how you keep track of things.
