Tropical Layered Smoothie

Tropical Layered Smoothie by Vegan À La Mode (Vegan and Gluten-Free)

I’m finally back to posting new content! I had to take a brief hiatus from blogging to focus on finals but I am happy to say I am done with the semester and have received my degree in Fashion Merchandising. It feels so good to be able to get back to blogging and I can’t wait to start sharing more recipes and cruelty-free fashion posts!


Mother’s Day Brunch

Mother's Day 4

Usually Monday mornings are rather dreary but today I am full of gratitude and happiness after a wonderful weekend. Friday night, I got to see Ingrid Michaelson, my absolute favorite singer, perform at Humphrey’s By The Bay in Point Loma thanks to my amazing boyfriend who surprised me with the tickets as an early graduation gift. Then, we had a nice lazy Saturday together which was the perfect way to relax before I headed to Newport Beach on Mother’s Day. I celebrated the day with my mom, aunt and grandmother and enjoyed a lovely Sunday brunch True Food Kitchen. I can’t believe I had never eaten at True Food Kitchen given it’s menu is so health conscious in addition to being vegan/gluten-free friendly. We were all very excited to eat there since their menu seriously has something for everyone!


Easy Gluten-Free Tortilla Pizza

Easy Tortilla Pizza (Vegan and Gluten-Free)

I have never had much success with homemade gluten-free/vegan pizza crusts. Nearly every pizza crust I have attempted has ended up tasting a bit like cardboard to me. I had totally given up on finding the perfect pizza crust recipe until I was recently scrolling through my Instagram feed when I saw an amazing looking pizza posted by Ashley, blogger of Blissful Basil. Ashley used a tortilla as the crust for her pizza and said it only took 15 minutes to cook. I was sold on the idea and headed to the store right away to pick up brown rice tortillas!
