I must confess before I became vegetarian a year and a half ago I did think about what foods I was going to miss. That thought convinced me to think about the pros and cons of leaving meat as a whole. Did I really want […]
So I have been gone for almost half of the month of September, or more I should say, not really posting much. Disappointing, I know, tell me about it. But I’ve been working on some exciting stuff such as planning and creating new blog posts/youtube videos. Oh, and revamping my blog! I mean looks much more organized right? Well, that’s if you even remember how my blog used to look. But it’s cool I ain’t mad at you. Life also happened, a lot of personal stuff that just made me want to take a break from writing. Or should I say major creative constipation? I mean it happens, if you’re a writer or you’re trying to start your blog you’ll face it. Taking a mental break really helped me get back on my zone/grind. I’ve also tried some new positive rituals for myself, maybe I’ll write a post on it. I forgot to mention, it’s OCTOBER! Fall is officially here to stay for the next couple of weeks. Summer is over and I am so happy to smell the familiar seasonal smells like pumpkin spice and watch horror movies (like Hocus Pocus). Yup, that’s what I look forward to every year. Talking about every year, I encountered this blogtober trend on twitter and I thought I would try it out. At first, I was wondering “what does blogtober mean?”. It’s simply a challenge where bloggers write 31 blog posts, one for each day. I am not planning on posting every day, but why not give it a try. The goal for this month is to be consistent and stay positive. I hope you guy’s enjoyed this little intro on why I was MIA and I am excited to share more stuff with you all, until next time.

Dating, for many of us it’s a struggled to find the perfect love match. Others, or should I say the older generation think it’s way harder to find someone in this day in age. Why? Well dating apps, people always stuck to their phones and […]
I am finally back from my week-long vacation in México, and I am a little bit upset. It’s always nice to visit the motherland, walking around hearing the language. Experiencing the culture in full swing. It really is what I enjoy the most. But like any fairytale story, it must come to an end or should I say back to reality. Anyways, this was not my first time visiting the state of Jalisco. My family and I usually visit Guadalajara and neighboring cities. But mainly reside in my parents home state which is Michoacan. Well not this time, I had the pleasure to visit this amazing state with my boyfriend and his family. Ask me if I was nervous; of course, I was! I was so used to having my parents exchange my money, book my flight, feed me, take me places. But I guess this time I had to do everything on my own with some help from others. Which was a big weight off my shoulders. There were plenty of places that we visited as a group, but Tepatitlan stole my heart. It sounds kinda cheesy but I found the city to be gorgeous. It had amazing food and architecture. Also, it’s a place we visited frequently, like almost every day. Meeting up with other family members to have breakfast or dinner.
I must say it was a city filled with more vegetarian-friendly food than where we were staying at. There was a night where I had nothing to eat for dinner and I wished I was in Tepa (short for Tepatitlan). So I just had pan dulce, which is a sweet bread and a glass of milk. Not my ideal dinner but that’s all they had. All negative things aside, point is, I had more options in Tepa. Instead of hitting up a restaurant we would go to El Mercado. Which is a food court on the second level and a farmers market on the first floor with other small shops filled with traditional treats like obleas. They had so many options, my favorite dish was the gorditas. It’s like a thick tortilla with melted cheese on top. We would usually meet up in the morning with the rest of our group, depending if we rode on the bus or went in different cars. Although we were always visiting, there was a lot of things to do. If you didn’t know, my boyfriend has a coffee Instagram page (@coffeewithbae). We would look for some coffee shops to try out. Surprisingly there was a handful of coffee shops that we wanted to visit but didn’t have enough time. The ones we did visit, were really good. Oh, I didn’t even mention the trash cans they! There were two bins, one was for trash and the other for compost. I thought it was interesting to see a town implement this option in México.
I would say that my favorite place to visit in Tepa was the ice cream shops. It was extremely hot some days and having something cold was a must. Mexican ice cream cones are the best to cool off. But overall this place was amazing. I truly had an amazing trip and can’t wait to go back next year.
