Eating the rainbow, taco edition. @cafegratitude "I am Transformed" tacos. #plantpowered #plantbased #vegansofig #veganeats #whatveganseat #cafegratitude

Feeling like a new person after my πŸ’‡πŸ½ at @lateliersalonsantacruz. Feeling so confident and refreshed now. I've been in a funk lately and have been feeling really insecure and have had a lot of negative thoughts, but I have to check myself and recognize all I have to be grateful for and this snip snip was just what I needed to turn my mood around. #vegansofig #plantpowered #freshcut #santacruz #myhappyplace

"So I am not a broken heart... I am not the way I slept on my doorstep under the bare sky in smell of tears because my apartment was empty and if I were to be this empty I wanted something solid to sleep on. Like concrete.
I am not this year and I am not your fault.
I am muscles building cells, a little every day, because they broke that day, but bones are stronger once they heal and I am smiling to the bus driver and replacing my groceries once a week and I am not sitting for hours in the shower anymore.
I am the way a life unfolds and bloom and seasons come and go and I am the way the spring always finds a way to turn even the coldest winter into a field of green and flowers and new life.
I am not your fault." - Charlotte Eriksson #selflove #springishere #santacruz #recovery

Beautiful Santa Cruz. Everyday it gets a little harder to imagine ever leaving this city. If/When I do I think I'll always miss it. πŸŒ±πŸŒŠβ˜€οΈ #santacruz #vegansofig #oceanviews #collegetown #westcliffdrive

Green smoothies and β˜€οΈ! Had such a good day yesterday. I have been in a funk lately, just not feeling that happy and feeling disconnected from the people around me, but yesterday I just felt so happy and everything went so well. And I reminded myself how lucky I am to be living in a beautiful city and working in a vegan workplace and be surrounded by compassionate and beautiful people. Life is good and I don't take it for granted. #veganfood #vegansofig #plantbased #plantstrong #noanimalsharmed #whatveganseat #greensmoothies #santacruz

4 1/2 years of stress, tears (so many tearssss), anxiety, sleepless nights, sacrificing my personal health and wellbeing for academia-- and so many amazing, mind-opening experiences and people and teachers all wrapped up in a piece of paper. As absolutely amazing and awful and life-changing as my experience was at UCSC, the most important things I learned weren't in my classes or from my professors. I learned and grew so much as a person through my friends, organizations I was apart of (@chpnow, @eslp_at_ucsc, and @bananaslugsforanimals), and through my own struggles with mental health. Higher education shouldn't be so inaccessible and expensive and I'm just waiting for student loans to hit, but even with all of that I'm so grateful for having the resources and ability to pursue higher education. So here's the most expensive piece of paper I've ever owned that came in the mail today. Officially #graduated . πŸŽ“πŸ₯‚ #ucsc #ucsantacruz #collegegrad #ucscalumna

Just some of the amazing vegan products I got to try this weekend at @natprodexpo West! Had such a good time with the @vegnews team tasting our way through Expo. Vegan is the future of food.
