After the Seed and my work travel to San Antonio, I’ve been crazy busier than expected. All good stuff, but my work hours have been longer, my social calendar more packed, and I’ve just had zero time to blog!

This all bums me out, but I have a lot of great stuff that’s happened since my last post, as well as coming up in the next several weeks so I’m expecting July will be jam-packed with lots of post content.  Between me leaving for Wanderlust in Vermont this week, a long weekend in Philly for a wedding and Jim and my annual 4th of July trip to Boston, I’ll have no shortage of updates once I return from this hopefully short-lived blogging break.

In the event you still want to follow along with me on my travels, you can always feel free to check in with me on Twitter or Instagram.  I’m still relatively active on those during my blogging breaks.

In the meantime, with all this business I totally spaced out and forgot to announce the Traveling Pink Lips VeganCuts giveaway winner!

And the winner is (drum roll please)…


Erica Wollman!

Erica, please contact me for Holly‘s (at Traveling Pink Lips) contact info so you can claim your prize.

I hope everyone’s been enjoying their summer so far and you’ll hear from me again soon!

Hi ya’ll! I’m alive!

Hurricane Irene (actually, Tropical Storm Irene) wasn’t as bad once it reached here than they expected it to be.  I honestly slept through the most of it, literally.  The worst of it came from flooding, which thank goodness I wasn’t in a flood zone and was not affected.  My heart goes out to all the families in upstate NY, Vermont, and other areas that weren’t expecting to get hit at all and are dealing with incredible damage to their homes right now due to the flooding.

Saturday while sitting around and anticipating the storm, I had a bunch of time to sit and think about my blog.  Truth is I really love blogging, and want to post more.  So I think I’ve developed a way to allow me to post more often even with my crazy work schedule and life.

I’ve decided to set myself up with a blogging schedule. Truth is with me working so much, it’s often hard for me to get posts up all the time. I figure if I set up a schedule, I can then keep a database of certain types of posts so I always have stuff I can post ready to go.

Here’s what it’s going to look like:

Mondays: Meatless Monday. I’ll share with everyone some of my favorite vegan and vegetarian recipes. As a disclaimer, some will be of my own creation, though most will be favorites I’ve found through various sources throughout the years. Requirements to be in my favorite recipe file is they have to take around 30 minutes or less to make, and taste delicious.

Tuesdays: Outfit Post. Most likely I’ll keep Tuesday’s outfit to being office/work appropriate, being Monday through Thursday’s that’s what I have to adhere to.

Wednesdays: Vegan Versions I’ll share a vegan version I’ve found recently of non-vegan items I’ve been fiending for. If I don’t have a vegan version that week, Wednesdays will be reserved for fashion shopping wants and inspiration images.

Thursdays: Outfit Post. Thursday’s outfit with be more of a “Casual Friday” look. Polished yet casual.

Fridays: Stuff to Do/Reviews. I’ll share with everyone photos and reviews of fun things to do and restaurants to eat at here in New York City. Most all will have some sort of vegan options.

Saturdays: Outfit Post. Saturday’s outfit will be my standard casual weekend attire, or going out on .

Sundays: The Weekend in Pictures. I think you guys are used to these already.

That’s the plan, but don’t hold me to it. If I come up with some other topic or idea I want to write about, you better believe I will. Also, if I get blogger burnout I plan on taking breaks when I need to. Everyone deserves a vacation every once in a while.

Speaking of which, I’m going on vacation in September and am in need of guest posters. If you’re interested, drop me an email!
