3 Reasons Why I Became A Vegan.

Hey Dolls,

If you cannot already tell from the title of this blog post, today I am going to share with you the 3 reasons why became a Vegan. I get a lot of messages and crazy looks from people asking how and why I decided to switch to this lifestyle so, I decided to write a whole post about it.

Around this time last year, I made the decision to stop eating dairy, meat, fish, eggs, honey and like everything that comes from an animal. Also, I decided to stop purchasing leather, suede, fur, silk etc. Basically, I switched my diet and lifestyle completely around. I used to eat cheese 24/7, devour burgers all the time, order chicken on my burrito bowls from Chipotle and not think twice about it. You are probably wondering how does one stop eating cheese???? I thought the same thing too until my eyes were opened to a whole new perspective.

1. My Health
About a year ago, there was no direction or structure in my daily routine. I didn't feel like I was living for anything. I wasn't putting any effort in school, I was focused on negative energy and I genuinely did not like the way my future looked. You could say during this time I had a bad relationship with food as well. I would eat constantly late at night knowing I felt full but, I would continue to keep eating anyway. I would wake up really late in the day and did not fully digest the food until days later. I soon found out the reason why I wasn't digesting food properly was because I was eating too many animal products which take days to digest. Meatdairy and eggs are known to cause obesity, cancer, heart disease and other health issues. I did not feel good about myself and eating this way and it took a toll on my well being.  For a while I had no idea what to do, I felt stuck and trapped in an unhealthy lifestyle. I knew things needed to change. Once I found out what Veganism was there was no turing back. Switching to this plant based diet has helped my digestion, mental health and all around happiness. People who stop eating dairy, meat and eggs also experience clearer skin, more energy throughout the day and weight loss. There is NOTHING bad to say about this way of living.

2. The Animals
For as long as I can remember I have always cared for animals. My chocolate lab named Marley is my world, I have an obsession with Elephants and a place in my heart for all animals on earth (even snakes lol). With that being said, animals are all living beings with feelings and a heart so why do we eat them? Why should I eat a mass produced innocent cow when I can eat a yummy Vegan burger that tastes 10x better? Idk about you but I feel so much better knowing I'm not participating in killing, raping and slaughtering a momma cow just so I can use her meat in my cheeseburger & drink her milk that was made for her baby cow.

3. The Environment
Our environment is slowly dying because of the way we treat it. If I'm saving water for our planet by not eating meat then I never want to touch meat again. The amount of pollution that goes into our planet from the meat industry is ridiculous. If more people went Vegan we could all be happy.


I hope this post inspires someone to try out Veganism. I know for me, this is one of the best life choices I've made so far. If you have ANY curiosity at all to be vegan just give a try. I love receiving DM's from you guys, feel free to message me with any questions you may have. I plan to post more about my Vegan lifestyle in the future so, stay tuned.

My Favorite 2017 Swimwear Trend

Hey Dolls,

Since Summer has officially started, I thought i'd share with you my favorite bikini style at the moment.

High Waisted/ Cut Bikinis are everywhere right now. Though it's not the best style to tan in, it sure looks adorable and for that reason i'm still going to buy about 50 more this summer. The one pictured below is from shopgg.co. My favorite part about this suit is the peachy blush color, it makes you look really tan even if you're not. Another bonus is that it's super comfortable and you'll be sure to get a ton of compliments on it. Shop GG also has a bunch of other amazing high quality bikinis that you need to check out as well. Be sure to use my coupon code EMILY15 for 15% off at checkout.

Newport Summer Style

Hey Dolls,

If you didn't know already, I moved! I will now be taking most of my blog pictures in Newport, RI. I have been here for almost a month now and I love it. Being surrounded by gorgeous water, beautiful views and amazing bars is the recipe for one of the best summers ever. I will reside here for the next year and can't wait to take you along on my journey. 


Since living here, I have been able to wear some of my more daring summer looks. One of my recent favorites comes from shopgg.co. Its a two piece striped set with an adorable strapless top paired with what looks like a skirt but, it's actually shorts... I know, so innovative right? Whats great about this number is you can mix and match the top and bottoms with other items in your closet which I'm all about. If you love this combo as much as I do, check out shopgg.co and use my code EMILY15 for 15% off of your order.  







For longer dresses and skirts I usually like to be elevated with heels. These lace-up heels were a staple in my summer wardrobe last year. I got them from windsorstore.com  but they don't sell them anymore so I linked similar ones which are even cuter. 




I usually get all of my sunglasses from Marshalls or TJmaxx since I am always losing or breaking mine and can't risk damaging an expensive pair. Also, this summer I am still rocking chokers and I don't see them leaving my wardrobe any time soon. 


If you are visiting Newport this summer and want to know some of my favorite places let me know because I'd love to make a blog post all about it. These next couple of months I hope to really bring my blog to life and focus on what truly makes me happy. 

Talk to you babes soon,
xx Emily

Pale Pink Please!

Hey Dolls, 

After being gone for so long, I've decided to start getting on a schedule of posting 1-2 times a week. So, here I am with my second post of the week! 

A few days ago while shopping at the mall I spotted SO many adorable not-so-basic sweatshirts. So, of course I had to get one with puffy statement sleeves. To make this look not so casual I decided to pair my new sweatshirt with this white faux leather skirt with zipper detailing. Also, I slipped on my new favorite pale pink sneakers to finish the look!

Top: Zara.com
Skirt: Missguided.com (similar style)
Shoes: DSW.com








Hope you can pull some spring inspiration from this look! Talk to you next week babes!

Springing for Stripes

Hey Dolls,

Though it does not feel like Spring, I have been slowly trying to wear some of my new pieces. Stripes have always been a staple in my wardrobe I feel like they are so effortless and easy to style. I mostly go for Black & White stripes or Navy & White stripes. As for my jeans, cropped ripped denim is something iv'e recently been into. Jeans can be so plain and boring sometimes so, by adding the rips and frays it makes your whole look a lot more interesting. My current job requires a lot of running around and movement so, I decided to invest in some adorable slip-on sneakers to make my life a lot easier.

Top: loveofqueen.com ( Only $9.00 rn!!)
Jeans: ASOS.com
Shoes: DSW.com
Bag: boohoo.com (similar style)







Now go grab that striped top before it sells out!!

Talk to you soon babes,

Spring Look Book

Hey Dolls!

Spring is just around the corner so I wanted to share with you some of the trends i've been loving. 


1. The Updated Blouse 
I have been obsessed with blouses that either have a unique back or big ruffle sleeves. They are easy to throw on when you are in a rush because they don't require many accessories.




2. Grayscale Patterns
From marble sunglasses to snake print booties. I just cannot get enough of these simple and chic patterns that subtly spice up every look. 



3. Statement Sleeves:
My favorite trend so far from this year has for sure been statement sleeves and I love that i'm seeing it again for spring.
