What you can expect from me:
– Great Care! I take great pride in the magic I create on each and every sponsored post. Creating value-added content for my amazing readers and the general public, is always my goal. I give tons of passion to my sponsored work because I only work with brands that I adore and projects that I am excited about.
– Appreciation. I know that these days, you have a plethora of bloggers that you can choose from to work with, so I am grateful for every collaboration that I receive. I show my appreciation by giving 110% to each and every sponsored project I work on.
– Communication. I greatly value the communication between blogger + brand. Communication is key to reaching your specific goals of the campaign or project. I like to have a crystal clear image of what the brand needs from me, before I dive into my creative work. The internet can be an unpredictable environment, but I have found that communication truly is the difference between a good campaign and a great campaign. And I always want to produce a great campaign. One with focus and achieved results, no matter how the internet responds.
– Social Support. I love social media! I communicate with my followers on social media every day, so my sponsored posts work in well with my everyday content. I promote my sponsored projects via my HHL profiles – terms dependent on each project. You can see my HealthyHappyLife social accounts below:

Demo-ing at D23, 2017:
– I do not work with brands that are not vegan-friendly. The brand does not need to be 100% vegan, but the product or promotion I am working with needs to be plant-based approved.
Sponsored Projects. Here are some examples of the sponsored work I have produced over the years. Click through and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Q: About the Vegan Part…. I am new here, what is the tone of the vegan part of your blog?
A: Positive, welcoming, friendly, helpful. The one thing that so many (vegan + mainstream) brands love and appreciate about working with me via HealthyHappyLife is the welcoming and friendly tone I keep in my posts. My blog is for everyone – vegans and non-vegans. I welcome with open arms, those people who enjoy exploring plant-based living and recipes, but do not eat vegan 100% of the time.
I grew up as a non-vegan, so I understand what it is like to be a “mainstream” eater. I also know what it feels like to want to improve your health via your diet, but also not wanting to feel pressured, stressed or bad about yourself. Food, cooking and recipes should fuel us, inspire us in the kitchen and make us feel good and happy, rather than stress us out.
So I keep things real, friendly, positive and also educational. My readers are smart, positive, enthusiastic, curious people and I love sharing veganism with them in a relaxed, respectful and open way.
Veganism is the best diet for me and I know the benefit it has for the planet and animals, but I also know that the decision to “go vegan” or even to eat more vegan meals is a very personal and individual thing. Food is personal.
I show appreciation and respect to everyone who takes the time to visit my blog!
Q: What is FindingVegan?
A: FV is my other site. It has over a million followers on social media and thousands of top food bloggers submitting to the site. Over 120,000 recipes in our database and over 90,000 registered users. (And climbing everyday.) Finding Vegan is available to limited brand collaborations. And sometimes an HHL project can access the popular FV social pages. Happy to chat more about opportunities.
I am so excited to possibly work with you. Please do not hesitate to contact me for a press kit, rates and more details.
