Hi Aisling! We love your instagram @ohhappyveggie, but aside from blogging, what do you do?
You’re also on YouTube, do you prefer being behind or in front of the camera?
I definitely prefer being behind the lens! I love being creative and taking photos and videos of my friends but I often feel a little camera shy when I’m the subject. When it comes to spreading a message though I’m not afraid to put myself out there.
On the weekend, where would we find you?
You’re a really powerful self-love advocate. What’s your best piece of advice for someone learning to fall in love with themselves?
Accept that you don’t need to change anything about yourself. You don’t need to tone your tummy or buy expensive pimple creams or do 100 squats a night for a peachy bum. Right now, just as you are, with all your imperfections, you are perfect. You can still have things you’d like to work on, but you have to appreciate and love your current self. Otherwise you will get that peachy ass and not be content because you never learnt how to be.
Have you met any life-long friends from social media?
What is your dream job?
I have so many things I want to do! I’d like to supply cafes in Dublin with homemade vegan treats, maybe work at a food magazine or as a food stylist/photographer, I also want to buy a van and turn it into a vegan food truck and drive around Ireland to farmer’s markets and festivals. I’d die to own my own café or bakery someday. I wanna do something I love, because then it’s not really work!
What makes you the happiest of all?
Top beauty tip:
Sunrise or sunset?
Sunrise! I love having a fresh new day ahead, endless possibilities of what I’ll get up to, watching the world wake up and breakfast plus coffee are on the horizon (pun intended).
