Big Big Announcement!

Hello lovely people!

First of all, if you're reading this, thank you. Thank you for visiting my blog or clicking on the link despite the fact that I haven't posted anything in almost a year! Let me explain myself a little bit.
This academic year was different. In September 2015, I realised that I have to concentrate on my studies and work in order to finish with a strong degree in 2017, therefore I decided to stop blogging for a while. In fact, I had not even brought my camera with me to Glasgow - I knew that looking at it on my dressing paper as it is slowly getting covered by dust would just make me feel guilty.
This Easter, I went home and decided to bring my camera with me this time. I love this blog, and I want it to happen. I have been doing it on an off for YEARS, and I always decide that I am going to bring some sort of consistency into it... Hopefully this time I will actually stick to it.

There is one reason however, why I thought it was great to have this little break and now 're-launch' it again, as the blog is about to change. The reason it will change is that I went through a major change myself just recently. I decided to go vegan.
In February 2016 I wanted to set a challenge for myself and go vegan for lent. Every year I lent without meat, and for some reason, last year it was not ideal at all - I could not wait to start my 'normal' diet again. I was thinking that I might just skip lent this year, however, a strong inner feeling suggested that I should set a bigger challenge. I decided to try veganism. I obviously had to do my research and as I was reading studies, blogposts, watching youtube videos and documentaries, I got so excited that I could not wait for Ash Wednesday to come. I therefore thought, why would I wait, so I started my journey in the first week of February. It only took me one or two weeks to realise that this will not end with lent. I felt amazing, enjoyed the food, the experimenting, and I was proud of myself for what I was doing for the animals and our planet. I have been vegan ever since and it is probably the best decision I have ever made in my life.

I invite you all to come with me on my vegan journey through this blog. I will not delete any past blogposts. Not even the roast chicken one! Food is memories, and I want to save them all, even if they represent a 'me' that I don't fully identify with anymore. I have lived twenty two years as a meat eater, I will not deny it, especially not on this blog.

Despite this big big change, there is one thing that is still the same: I still want to eat. All. The. Time. Come, cook, bake, fry, freeze with me, enjoy food, enjoy life!
