Hi and thanks for visiting my blog! My name is Emmelyn, I am 30 years old and live in the Netherlands. I first started blogging in 2015 and back then I thought my blogging journey would be about healthy food and living. But what I soon realized is that I have so many different interests and there’s so much more I want to blog about – why limit myself to food and health related topics? That’s why, earlier this year (2016), I decided to start my own personal website, under my own name. This way, I can write about anything I want without sticking to one specific topic.

In this blog I combine my two passions: cooking and writing. I love to write and I have ever since I was a little girl. That’s why earlier this year I started sharing my writing on a separate Instagram account (@emmelyncroes). On my personal Instagram (@emmelync) I share photos of my life and vegan food – my other passion. This blog is a combination of both: writing and vegan food. I share my favorite plant-based recipes and write about anything that’s on my mind.

This blog is a way for me to return to my true self and doing what I really love to do. I am not a fulltime blogger, I am a PhD candidate in communication science and I blog next to my fulltime job. Blogging has been a true joy for me and I hope you enjoy reading my blogposts as much as I enjoy writing them.
