Hi there and welcome to Vegan Love Stories!
About two weeks ago I had the idea to start a blog so that I could share my (relatively new) vegan lifestyle and the experiences I made along the way. A thousand templates, fonts and settings later here I am with my very first post!
So, how do I start?
The common advice (aka what Google tells you to do) is to introduce myself and my blog. I actually covered a lot of this on my ABOUT page so please excuse that quite a few things will double up here if you have already been there. Well, here we go!
My name is Carina and I’m currently living and working in London. I’m originally from Germany but really enjoy the vibrant city life on this rainy island.
In February 2015 I changed my food to a plant-based, cruelty free diet. Coming from a meat-eating family – and having eaten meat, dairy and eggs for the majority of my life – it was quite a change but an interesting and inspiring experience. It literally happened over night and I couldn’t be happier that I made the decision to go vegan; To learn and understand where our food comes from, how it’s farmed and grown and how these things affect our health and environment has been a very eye-opening journey. However, I know and I’m glad that there’s still a lot to learn and discover!
I’m a very passionate vegan foodie but realised that the vegan lifestyle reaches far beyond our food choices. There are so many inspiring people and companies out there who offer plant-based, cruelty-free products and I felt really excited about the idea of sharing all these Vegan Love Stories with you. But what do I mean with Vegan Love Stories anyway?
Well, what I want to do is to share my vegan journey with you; From some personal kitchen and travel adventures, great restaurants finds to my favourite products and shops – that’s what I call my Vegan Love Stories! I really hope that you find the following posts and reviews useful and that I can help to spread the word about things that are great. I would love to see you as excited and inspired about these things as I am and maybe you find yourself wanting to try a thing or two yourself – if you are vegan or not! I’m always interested to hear what you think so please leave comments on any of my posts or send me an email for questions, ideas or thoughts (you can do that HERE).
Since I’ve just started with this blog I’m not sure where this whole blogging journey will take me but as you can see from the menu at the top Recipes, Restaurants, Beauty and Living are the topics that I’m planning to write about. I guess, however, this will be a work in progress which allows me to improve the content along the way.
I’m really excited to get started and in order to get the ball rolling all my posts will be in English only for now but I’m working on finding a solution to easily switch between languages (English – German). If you can recommend any plugins I would love to hear about it!
I really hope that you find my Vegan Love Stories fun and inspiring and that you will come back for more!
