Hey everyone!

I thought it would be fitting to make a post all about my Thanksgiving this year! ( We still have a few hours until it’s really over, and calories will starting counting again).  This is the first year that my family cooked a vegan thanksgiving. I was grateful for the chance to have the family together and customize classical thanksgiving dishes to our liking. Although we are not tremendously daring when it comes to trying out new dishes,  it was our first time preparing these tofu “turkey” cutlets. The recipe can be found on Olivia Biermann’s youtube channel, which I am constantly keeping tabs on (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtuwIdM0Zx7xCiZSa_clRzw).  The meaning of Thanksgiving can often become lost in translation amidst the frenzy of super sales and copious amounts of gravy, so it’s important to reflect on what one is truly thankful for. In our daily routines, we become accustomed to a fast-paced way of life that we often forget what is right in front of us. Whether you celebrated with your friends and/or family this year, remember this is a time to come together and to appreciate the meaningful people in our lives (furry friends included!).

Sweater Weather

Hey everyone!

I took a little bit of a “hiatus” for a few weeks, but I’m back with another post all about embracing sweaters ( because I’ve honestly never met anyone who doesn’t like this time of year). I love layering various prints and fabrics under sweaters, especially collared button downs. I’ve been seeing a lot of  designers incorporate more traditionally masculine pieces/ styles into their clothes this season; a trend known as masculine feminine fashion. Although I can’t say I was ever a tomboy growing up, I’m all for incorporating these into my wardrobe in the coming months ( better late than never, I guess). I’ve actually been really interested in working to improve the layout of my website, and now that school has calmed down until finals week ( SOS, I don’t want December to come, I’m sure college students can relate), I am going to be channeling my time and energy into this blog. Stay tuned for a change in my website’s design soon, and keep up with my daily shenanigans on social media! My Instagram handle is @nicoleakerman
