Musings Over Mocha

Coffee Blogger

My name is Lulu and I’m the girl behind the camera of Musings over Mochas. I started blogging in 2015 as a way to challenge myself to get out and explore my city. Since then, I’ve taken my love for mochas to Los Angeles, Portland, Atlanta, London, Paris…. When I’m not drinking mochas, you’ll most likely find me cuddled with my cat, drinking a gin + tonic, or watching Grey’s Anatomy. (In a perfect world, all three of these things are happening.)

Vegan Blogger

My goal is to show that vegan food can look as good as any other food. Lots of people think that when you’re vegan you just eat salad. But it can really be so much fun! I’m really fond of Asian food, pasta and pizza, so why not make them healthier with a veggie based sauce? Once you get the idea that you can create your usual meal in a vegan mood, it becomes a fun challenge and practically anything is possible: pancakes, purées, fries, gyoza, veggie burgers, even vegan cheese!
