Life, lately

After almost a year of my life being documented through iPhone photos, I have finally bought a new digital camera! Yippeeeee! Although its not the best on the market, it was a great find for my budget and just what I need to keep all my adventures well documented (until I can afford a DSLR... 2 years is the goal!).

This is the camera. It's purple. I love it. Here are some it's flicks of life lately, proudly unedited.

campfire season has begun (eeeek!)
mini bamboo speaker from ebay, best 20$ ever spent!

veggie girl dates
                                                                                +hair wraps, of course.

winter into summer
who doesn't love a boy in uniform?
double dates 
 ultra quick DIY: earring tree :)
made w/ bendy wire from hardware at the Home Depot and a flat rock from PEI

veggie girls can have junk nights, too! ("chicken" nuggets from veggie patch)
ladies night
best healthy "pancakes"
just 2 eggs to 1 mashed banana, cook in a pan like pancakes in oil until golden brown on each side

meet my soul sister, Chanel
this constant rain don't get us down 

loving this company I just discovered! got my first "Boho Glam" box free!
use my referral code 16389065 & get yours too :)

my perfect mat!
been searching for a perfect rug that would double as a permanent yoga mat in my tiny room
finally found one while randomly browsing at Pier 1!
it looks like a classic persian rug but its plastic! perfect for not slipping in my downward doggie

Now I'll say goodnight & go watch another episode of Bob Ross's Joy of Painting, the best sleep-aid ever.

Veggie Love

I've always liked vegetables, but during these past two months of vegetariansm, I've literally fell in love with them. I pack my sandwiches with as many as possible, and always try and have plenty on the side of my meals. The best part about them is that you can eat so much, but never get that heavy, too-full-to-function feeling. You just feel great, energized and filled with awesome vitamins and such.

 But, I've got to admit my biggest downfall has been resorting to eating cheese and bread when in a rush, especially since I would like to eventually transition to veganism.
But I will do my research like a good vegetarian and start finding better on-the-go food choices.

Now lets celebrate with a little bit of vegetarian foodporn...

Goodmorning yum!

blueberry chutney & pear toast / berries, yogurt & walnuts
zuchini & brocoli scramble (best bf ever) / apples & yogurt with banana nutella toast

Afternoon pick-me-ups

homemade three-bean salad / strawberry, pineapple, spinach salad 
apple & cheese and spinach & avocado toasts / veggie fajita with homemade bean,rice&asparagus salad

Summer night suppers

garden burger with guacamole / chickpea patty ( good sub for breaded chicken!)
corn on the cob with a summer salad / veggie dogs with even more veggies

June is here and I just cant wait for all the summer excitement that's to come.
Moksha has been helping me get into summer shape along with my trusty bicycle that I adore.

Happy Summer
