The beginning...


Hello everybody! 

It seems a little stereotypical and cliche to start a blog off with a sort of hi I'm Emily introduction but I'm doing it anyway! I'm Emily, or as I'm more well known Em. I'm 20 years old and have been vegan since may 2016. As you've probably guessed my blog is going to be a vegan one although there will be aspects of other things such as disney here and there. 



This is me, HI! 

I feel like the best place to start is to tell you why I became vegan. As I said previously I became vegan in may of this year. Prior to this I had been a vegetarian for 2 and a bit years. As a veggie I had always wanted to go vegan but had been oblivious to the horrors that happen just for some milk and eggs...and I loved cheese, like really loved cheese.I had not researched veganism and it is one of my biggest regrets not going vegan sooner. Then one night I was sent to hospital with stabbing pains in my stomach, so bad I was admitted to a ward. The doctors couldn't find a cause, it hit me I could be lactose intolerant. So off I went to my GP and shared these views with her she agreed that it sounded like that and I cut out dairy. Cutting out dairy, yes even cheese, was one of, if not the easiest thing I've done. I don't miss milk at all and frankly prefer the plant based options. It was then that it occurred to me, if I've cut out dairy why don't I just cut out all animal products and go vegan? So in May this year, that is what I did and it is the best thing I've ever done. I've always been deeply passionate about animals, saving animals and saving the planet so becoming vegan seemed like an obvious choice. 


Which leads us to this blog. I started this blog for the vegans in the world, I started this so I had someone to share recipes, vegan products I've loved or just talk about something I've seen, whether it be a new movement, a new product or what I wore that day. I've always wanted to start a blog and have tried and failed more times than I care to admit. This time it feels very different, I am writing a blog about something I'm deeply passionate about and love. I will be running this blog alongside my youtube channel where I will be starting to post a lot more vegan related videos. 


I've got big plans for this blog and my first proper post coming very soon! 


So to help you all get to know me better here are some of the things that hold a space in my heart are; 



Starbucks, my one true love, coffee...




My cat Marco...





The beach, I'm a mermaid at heart...




Food my other true love...


DISNEY! 

Pumpkin spice...fall..

and finally Fashion and beauty...


Of course there are so many more things I love. I intend on blogging about all of these things and more. I hope you stop by again.
