RED LIGHT DISTRICT AND A SUGAR OVERLOAD

Today was….rainy. I mean we knew it was going to be like that already but man oh man Amsterdam you sure are wet! We had our whole morning planned. Emily had to take photos in the hotel so we were going to wake up super early, get some hotel shots while the lobby was empty, then head out to meet one of Emily’s insta-friends who lives in the Netherlands. Welp, that plan went to crap. We waaay overslept. The hotel bed was so comfortable I think our bodies were like,…

RECIPE: SWEET POTATO HASH

I saw my friend Chanelle post sweet potato hash on her Insta-stories as I was literally on my way to the grocery store so I decided to make my own recipe! I mentioned before that I basically grew up vegetarian and I noticed as an adult since consuming way more meat then I did as a child, I often feel tired, sick and bloated. So I’m trying to mimic my childhood diet by limiting my meat intake and cooking more vegetarian meals. The recipe is super duper easy and I…
