About

About the blog:
The Vegan Chickpea is a vegan food and personal lifestyle blog.  It was originally created to exclusively share recipes, but along the way has changed to be more inclusive of my everyday life- thoughts I am having, things I am doing, my relationships, my struggles, my favorite things, and my food.  I also enjoy posting reviews of products that I am particularly excited about, especially beauty and personal care products.  This blog has grown to be my creative outlet and personal journal as I move through a transitional and reflective time in my life.  It doesn't cover one thing in particular, but a million little things that consume my life and mind on a daily basis.

About the girl:
My name is Caitlin and I live in a little suburb near Philly with a cool dude and a little white pup.  I'm a very passionate person, particularly when it comes to the vegan lifestyle, modern art, aesthetics, brand loyalty, and my every day routine.  My life consists of working full-time, attending graduate school part-time (on the border of full-time), household chores, making food for my husband, and attempting to maintain some sort of social life.  This blog is my refuge and creative outlet.

Some random facts about me include:
-I have been vegan for over eight years, since I was 20.  It is the defining characteristic of my life.
-My undergraduate degree is in Art History.  I have an extra soft spot for Abstract Expressionism.
-I am very particular when it comes to colors, patterns, fonts, and composition.
-I wake up at 5:45 every morning, even on weekends.
-If I didn't care about eating a balanced diet, I'd eat peanut butter, bananas, and apples for the rest of my life.
-My ears are pierced but I only wear clip-on earrings.
-I'm obsessed with decorating my house, but am very slow at it because I obsess about everything.
-White House Black Market is my happy place.
-I went gluten-free in 2008, after being really sick for three months with no diagnosis from doctors.  Immediately all of my symptoms disappeared and I have stayed on this diet ever since.

Still curious?  I am a quintessential girly-girl.  I love makeup, getting dressed up, the color pink, fairy tales, art intended for children's rooms, Audrey Hepburn, and soft, floral prints.  I'm immediately attracted to anything with polka dots and/or bows.  To be classy and sophisticated, in more ways than one, is my ultimate goal in life.

If you have any questions, comments, an awesome vegan, cruelty-free product you think I should review (note: I am very picky), or just want to say hi, please feel free to leave a comment or send me an email.  They mean the world to me.
