Pinterest: FALL. it's the most wonderful time of the year.


....but it's true.

Fall is the absolute BEST time of the entire YEAR! To me, it's better than Christmas, better than my birthday, better than a whole lot of things. And it is quickly approaching! So here's some posts from my fall Pinterest board to get you in the spirit (read: on my level).


i like your beard.


Look at friggin' cute schnauzers.




LOVE IT: Beyond Meat

I've never met a food brand that I have fallen in love with so dearly, so quickly as Beyond Meat. They're meatless products that are DELICIOUS. I've tried the ground "beef" and grilled "chicken" strips.

I usually put the "chicken" strips in salad, or just eat them alone with some Frank's Red Hot. As for the ground "beef", I mix it with some Sour Supreme (vegan sour cream) and Daiya non-dairy cheese as a sort of taco salad. SO GOOD.

But you don't have to use my ghetto recipes, because they supply you with some on their website.

LOVE IT: The Tree Kisser

I am here to tell you that The Tree Kisser (aka Jessica) is the bomb.com. Her blog, Instagram and shop are all about animal and environmental activism and yummy vegan know-how.

I need like, all of the clothing on her shop's site. Gimme.

I started following her on Insta, somehow stumbling upon her profile and I LOVED IT. So much that I've got to share it!!

Basically, I love her and she needs to be my best friend.


Pinterest: NEW ENGLAND

I love New England. Like, too much for words. The trees; the snow; the autumn; the ocean; the history; Salem; EVERYTHING.

So since it's too much to put into words, I'm going to share a little bit of my New England Pinterest board.



don't call it a come back.

Hey, dudes! It's time for a triumphant return. I just want to be a brand all in myself.

So what has my life been lately?
Work; I'm taking 20 hours of summer classes; I'm trying to get into the habit of going to the gym EVERY DAY; I'm trying to eat healthy and minimize my drinking to as little as possible until I get fit and trim; trying to maintain friendships and such; trying my hardest to stay true to who I am and who I want to be; doing the best I can at my positions in Delta Zeta. So basically I'm STRUGGLING.

I'm not going to BS like I always do when I try to get back into blogging. I'm just going to DO IT.


Namaste, bitches


I'm all about fitness and yoga and diving right into my vegetarianism right now! I've added Entrepreneurship to my minor and I've decided what my options for my job are. Working for the Pittsburgh Penguins, being a professor, owning my own yoga studio with a vegan cafe/bar, or maybe even a fun vegan pizza shop! IT'S TIME TO GET SERIOUS ABOUT MY HEALTH!!! I'm going to quit smoking (I haven't smoked since Saturday? i think?).  I'm getting back on my TurboFire grind. I'm getting super into Yoga because I really want to be an instructor someday! I've started trying to eat healthier, I'm actually cooking some tofu as we speak!

So now, this blog will be geared towards documenting my progress into the world of health, nutrition, fitness and wellness!


summer instagram.

being that fall is almost here, i thought i'd share some instagram pictures from summer as a wrap-up!

we went to the death cab for cutie concert in cleveland! i lost all other pictures from the concert though, when i switched computers :(

new summer hair!

i've decided to go completely vegan. which means nothing tested on animals will be used by me. i love method products!

jackie and randy finally got married this summer!

and so did elise and nick! i miss them so much.

it may be a little early to be using this cup but i'm obsesssssed.


tuesdays are for tunes.

since i'm in class from 11-315 on tuesdays now, it's not the best day for some great big blog post. so i've decided featured music is a good filler on tuesdays. i have a weird, quirky, vast, eclectic, random music collection so i hope you find something to enjoy in my insanity that is my itunes.

i have to admit that i'm really enjoying this Ellie Goulding young lady. i'm slightly embarrassed by it, but it happens. i started with Guns and Horses, then found her cover of Your Song by Elton John and fell all the way down the rabbit hole.



new things are happening. i feel better. okay that's a lie. i feel better about certain things. like my scholastic future. i can see the light at the end of the tunnel. i've officially changed my major to Journalism with a marketing and advertising minor. my occupational spectrum is wide. however, i haven't seriously written since high school. so i need to jump back on the blogger bandwagon. i need to flex my mind's fingers again. only problem is that i work 5 nights a week now. which is great money-wise (for the most part), but that means less to write about, in a way. no great adventures like i used to have. i guess it will give me a chance to appreciate the little things better.

i'm actually taking classes that pertain to my major. ALL classes that pertain to my major, for the first time ever and i love it. i only need a few more gen eds. i'll be graduating next spring (2014). i'm so ansty, i can't wait.
