About Me

I have a degree in History and Women's Studies and a post grad in Event Management.

I consider myself as "adventure-lite" that loves hiking, camping, canoeing, swimming, and snorkeling. I'm looking to complete a backpacking trip sometime this summer.

I love to bake and adapting recipes to make them vegan! Anything from cakes, breads, cookies, muffins. I'm love collecting (vegan) cookbooks.

I love reading. My favourite genres are women's historical fiction, feminist literature, LGBTQ literature, and fantasy.

I love discovering new places and cultures. I have been to Thailand and Germany, but I want to add more countries to my list as soon as I can! My next is Nicaragua!

Favorite Crafts

Cross Stitching

Adult Colouring Books


Card Making

Comment: Thank you so much for your kindness packed packet!!! I'm embarrassed to say I dug into the sour patch kids before reading your note *grin* And I will definitely try your smoothy recipe with PB powder! The rest I'm taking on a trip to Beograd next week; no vegan food on the plane as it's within the continent so I'm stocking up on travel size packets. Hope I can wait that long though LOL because the white nougat crisp chocolate is calling me... <3
Response: I'm so glad you liked it! Traveling while vegan can be a challenge sometimes so I always stock up on treats before I go on trip as well! Enjoy Boegrad and the white nougat!
