I WENT VEGAN

Besides coming out, making this blog and pursuing art in college; going vegan is one of the best choices I've ever made. I'm finding so much happiness through healthy, vibrant foods. I feel so much cleaner and ALIVE!

My brother left his juicer at the house before he left to go travel Central America, so I've taken FULL advantage of it. It's my new favorite hobby!! I love going to the local farmers market every week and stocking up on all sorts of delicious fruits and veggies. It brings me so much joy! I juice every morning, followed by a cup of green tea with matcha and they give me such a jolt of energy. But not the jittery energy that coffee and energy drinks gave me, this is brain fuel. I feel so focused and charged. You guys gotta try it.

Social Media Shoutouts!

Remember the drawings I posted a few posts back? I got a SHOUTOUT!!!

Look at all dem likes

The night Kristina reposted my drawing on her Instagram was one of the best moments of my life. Of course no one was there to witness it. My parents were already asleep so I jumped up and down in my room and then ran outside and started screaming. And then I started crying I was so happy. haha

She started following me back too! I woke up the next morning and my jaw literally dropped when I had 500 new followers and several commission inquiries!

I got in contact with Savonn Champelle and he not only mentioned me in one of his YouTube videos, but he made my drawing his Facebook profile picture and added me! Ahhh


 
 Than I got another Instagram shout out from a BADASS Aussie fitness chick named Dani. She's so adorable.


I am so humbled by all the positive feedback I've been receiving from my artwork and the new friends I've made along the way! Being able to connect to people that I look up to is one of the most gratifying feelings ever!

MUCH LOVE!
