vegetarian My story on why and how I am vegetarian

vegetarian the why and how

I’ve been vegetarian for a little more than a year now and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

 I like to think I’m healthy. My diet exists mostly out of vegetables and plant based foods. Most days I stick to the full vegetarian game but I do have that occasional peace of salmon. I do try to avoid dairy products more and more.

I’ve never really liked meat as a kid and going into my early teens I got more picky. God bless my mum for putting up with me. 😀
One day I discovered the documentary earthlings, I couldn’t watch it. I tried really hard but it was horrifying. And I became vegan because I was afraid of the meat and daily industry.

The first month I went vegan. I loved it. I felt amazing, I was trying so many recipes. (You should try the Jemie Oliver shepherd pie. It’s amazing)

I loved being vegan but then I started to realise that going to a store and finding the products I wanted was so hard I kind of gave up. Here in Belgium you can not just go vegan. It’s freaking expensive to get vegetables and in Europe it just isn’t a big thing. Going out to eat with family was one of the hardest things ever, if you say you are vegetarian in a Belgian restaurant they just give you salad and fries??? Perhaps I am going back to vegan. Just because I feel like it is the best for my body and a plant based diet is one of the best things you can do for your body and blood sugar.

 Later on I started following cooking classes and being vegan got even harder. BTW they where mandatory, thank you high school…
And then I discovered sushi and Japanese cuisine. This made me fall in love with fish.

So that’s my story and how I changed over the past years. Tell me your story and how you feel about vegan/ vegetarian food.

Wardrobe essentials every girl needs

Wardrobe essentials  every girl needs and should be having.

Choosing the clothes that you will invest in is very important. So here is a list of my basics. Remember these are one time investment pieces so spend the extra money, you will end up saving in the future.

1. The blazer

Get a blazer! Believe me ,I can’t stress this enough, it doesn’t matter what your style is. Everyone needs a blazer. You can dress them up or down. It can give you a polished look without trying. Or even casual if you wear it right!

 

 

 

 

 

Buying tips

  • Check the stitching for defects
  • The lining should be flattering
  • Go neutral, black and navy are good to start
  • The material should be rain resistant

2. Jeans

We all have jeans but are they right for us? Choosing jeans that you like and look good in is important. They are a staple we will all keep wearing forever but you don’t want you butt looking ugly do you now?

Buying tips

  • Ask for help, getting the correct size is important so just ask.
  • Don’t be afraid to go a size up or down, every brands sizing is different!
  • Choose what you like, don’t follow the rules about body shape. If you feel good in it get it

The LBD (little black dress)

Choosing the right dress for any occasion is a must. Black is a simple colour that goes with anything.

P.s. From experience I have learned that even if you are pale you can wear black. So yes grandma I’m going for it haha.

Buying tips

  • Get a dress with shape.  Check for stitching around the belly button region, it will make your waist look smaller and your legs longer.
  • Don’t do sparkles. And I know they look amazing but remember, you don’t want to be a grandma in a sparkling dress. If you spend the money make it last.

Have an amazing day

Personal style: How to develop your personal style

Screen Shot 2016-03-02 at 15.22.05

Creating a personal style is a fun way of self expression. I am going to share some tips on how I created my own unique style, and maybe help you create yours.

1 Be confident

Confidence and style go hand in hand. For me it was a very interesting prices, because dressing the part made me feel the part. After taking more time to dress up, the  more I came out of my shell. 

2 Commit to a style

Before you start experimenting you have to master a style. There are a lot of youtube videos out there on how to do it. I recommend watching LaurenMessiah. Because she shows the different styles you can have and were to shop. And trust me knowing those basics is very importent. When I chose the preppy style I looked up the essentials for my style and looked for inspiration on the web. 

3 Go basic

Buying the basics will make it very easy to get dressed in the morning and make it effortless. Remember the first couple of mouths you should try to keep your style very basic. And don’t go all out on trendy clothes.

4 Invest in the classics

Buying well tailored classic items is importent. Spending the extra cash is worth it. You will keep going back to these items so don’t go cheep you will end up spending more money.

5 Your own style

After you have mastered the basics you can start mixing different styles and have fun with it. You can express yourself, but remember your style reflects your personality. This just means that if you want to be taken seriously, dress the part.

Have an amazing day!

Confidence: My opinion on being more confident

Girl walking down the street with confidence

Confidence is the key to success.

I’ve learned a lot about confidence over the past years.

Around the age of 13 I realised I am different then the others. So I started to look up people with the same condition as me. I wanted to know what type of makeup they used, how they got accepted…

Then I learned that I was pushing myself in a corner. It’s really good to find inspiration and look at people who are like you, but you are limiting yourself.  On the end of the day everything is possible. We shouldn’t look at what other people do, we have to look at what we can do.

I look at my strengths and develop them. Weaknesses can be overlooked if you have a lot of strengths.

You will be amazing if you believe in yourself.

Stay posted and follow me on bloglovin for more things me and more things my life 🙂

XOXO Lisa
