Hey there! Welcome to my blog. My name is Venecia Joanne May.
I know, it must seem like I’m pretentious for naming my blog after myself, letting my own name be my “branding”. The truth is, I’ve always loved writing and I have an interest in a variety of things: food and reading being two big ones.
In light of that, I decided to put it all up on the internet as a way of having all my thoughts and memories in one place so that I can visit them whenever I like, and also, it allows other people who may have similar interests, to be able to share this journey called life with me.
I can’t really categorise my blog as being about one specific thing. It’s not specifically a food blog, not exactly a literature blog and not even completely about beauty. If I had to choose, I guess I would call it a lifestyle blog. Whose lifestyle? Mine. Hence, the reason why I use my name.
What do I like? As I mentioned before, food and reading. I am definitely a foodie and am most certainly a book worm. I also, however, love getting to know knew places. In addition, I find decorating really interesting when I have the time (and the money haha!) and I really like fashion and beauty.
I’m also from Belize. Yes, that beautiful little Caribbean country smack between Guatemala and Mexico. I’m not currently living in Belize but I grew up there, spent most of my life there, so I still retain my love for the country. How do I show my love for it? By living on traditional Belizean cuisine. However, most of the foods there aren’t vegetarian or vegan (currently I am an ovo-vegetarian but I eat vegan when I can); So, with the help of my mom, we’ve been slowly converting a lot of these traditional foods into versions that I can eat. Knowing that there is a vegan/vegetarian community in Belize, I’m hoping that this can be a place where they can come to find cruelty free versions of their favourite food and also for people of other nationalities to be able to try them at home, too.
So, yeah! That’s what you’re going to find on this blog and if you’re truly interested in getting to know me, then the easiest way is to read my posts.
If you’ve found yourself here for whatever reason, I hope you find something of your interest, that you like it- maybe we can relate to each other – and hopefully you’ll stick around. Happy reading!
