Hello & welcome to girlinasong
I started this blog back in 2011, when I was 18 years old, with these very words: “this is a very personal blog. it’s about me and all aspects my life has to offer“.
well, today I am 24 years old and decided to get back into it.
Back then I started this to write about veganism, share my own recipes and thoughts on the world. I am also a passionate musician (I sing) and lover of all things beautiful.
I decided I not to delete my old posts, but there was some freshening up to do on this site.
However, there is still no clear category for this site – I will write whatever I feel like, so it could include book reviews, my thoughts on the world today, vegan food or stuff about vegan makeup and beauty products (like, hair – duh).
I also thought about the language to post in. The blog started with some posts in German, my mother tongue, then continued in English. I think I will just figure out the language for each post – but I am happy to deliver on both, just let me know.
I’ve been vegan for about 6 years now, so I’ve pretty much got it down, I guess 😉
Post one / one and a half years of vegetarianism I soon started walking down the path to complete veganism. I took this journey step by step did not have a ‘role model‘ in my circles. I have always loved animals and one day simply started informing myself about vegetarianism. However, I soon learned that this was just half the deal and started looking into veganism. I read loads of stuff on the various aspects of veganism: health, culture, moral, environment (the one book that really did it for me was “Eating Animals“ by J. S. Foer). And then I simply tried – and never took a step backwards, because I simply love every aspect of it.
Me being vegan is an important part of me. I believe that I grew a lot as a person since I started to actively look into this whole lifestyle and I did not once regret my decision.

Recipes & Foodie-focus
The blogosphere is already stuffed with them: food blogs.
When I started this blog back in 2011 my focus was very much on the recipe posts. I used this blog to remember my own creations and share them with anyone interested, too.
Today, after quite some time off blogging, I’m coming back and reinventing this blog. I will not continue to post mainly recipes, as my plan is to write about different parts of my life more.
I still enjoy cooking, baking and coming up with new recipe ideas (I do not like following recipes myself – I’d rather improvise). If, however, I come up with a new, noteworthy recipe or some thoughts regarding food, I will not miss to share these here.
All my recipes are vegan and relatively healthy (yes, I love chocolate, still). It’s all about balance and loving food & yourself, people! 🙂
