While we pine for new episodes of The Vampire Diaries and eat too many popsicles (it is the summer after all), the show’s cast and crew are enjoying some well-deserved time off. Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) is officially on vacation, but she took some time out of her break to talk to Company magazine about food and fashion.

Naming Topshop as her favorite British import store, Nina went on to discuss how playing with clothing (wedge shoes are a major favorite) is one of her preferred ways of expelling excess creative energy. "It's so much fun to go to the events — pick out designer dresses, shoes and jewellery,” said the actress. “It's a whole creative outlet.”

In addition to revealing that the clothes in her closet have a “hippy Venice Beach vibe,” Nina also explained her diet. "I'm not officially a vegan, but I mainly eat vegan food,” the slender TVD star said.

We wonder if she cheats on the vegan diet with a little meat. Back in 2011, Nina admitted that she couldn’t handle the vegetarian lifestyle. She told SELF magazine, “I tried being a vegetarian for four months, and after awhile, I started feeling weak, like I needed more protein, more energy. … It made me think: I need a burger — a beef burger, not a soy burger.”

There are pescatarians. Maybe Nina’s just a beef-gan?
