Why does it offend people if I don’t eat Meat?

2016-06-17 13.03.41

So I’ve recently made a big life decision in my life. I decided to no longer eat meat. I won’t go into specifics on why I made this decision or any of my personal beliefs.

Please note that I have only been doing this for a couple of weeks, and to be honest I didn’t want to make it a big deal. I don’t go around wearing shirts that label me vegetarian, I don’t try to prosecute people who eat meat. I am pretty much silent about the whole thing in general.

Lately however I notice a lot of negativity come from the people I have mentioned it to, and I  just don’t understand it.

How does my food decisions affect anyone else but me? I’m not you, I don’t decide what you eat or what you put in your body, and I really don’t want to.

The first thing I get asked is ‘Why?’, this may seem like a harmless question and it usually can be but it’s the questions that come after it make me shake my head and then ignore you.

You don’t have to understand my reasons.

You don’t have to start listing reasons why you eat meat (I didn’t even ask.) and I am not trying to stop you.

You don’t need to give me a sarcastic “Good Luck’

You don’t need to give me all the reasons why you think I will fail, trust me I’ve already gone through them multiple times in my head.

My husband is the only person who’s opinion on this even remotely matters and guess what? He absolutely 100% supports me and my decisions, he even went so far as to look up recipes, order me food and try my meatless ‘meat’.

In conclusion what I eat and put in to my body, shouldn’t offend you. It’s not like I’m trying to eat a baby or anything.

Has anyone ever had a problem of other people being offended by something that doesn’t even affect them?

Rescue, Respect, Repeat, but don’t forget rewarding!

So this past weekend Tesla and I went hiking at Will Rogers State park in Pacific Palisades.  So I decided to wear my new Arm The Animals Slim Tank. We had so much fun walking almost 5 miles up and down the hills. We saw horses, Artwork and I suspect got video taped and photographed for some media thing.

Adopting an animal is one of the most rewarding things I have done. Adopting Tesla and Mordechai was one of the best things I have done. Adopting is not for everyone though, but it doesn’t mean you can’t help animal organizations that rescue these pets.

Arm The Animals Donates a Portion of every sale to ‘No Kill’ animal organizations, so not only are you walking around in style but helping pets in need.

If you like the shirt and want to purchase it you can do that HERE.

Fallen: A fractured retelling of THE FROG PRINCE Book Review


51pUrY1oF1L._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_

First of all let me just say that it is completely right in a ‘fracture retelling’. I feel like the author jumps around way too much with her chapters which is sort of confusing. Does it mean the book is bad? No it does not.

 

Hunter is very imaginative, I must admit and she paints pictures with her words. I didn’t know this when I started reading the book that this is a series. The Frog Prince is the 3rd out of 4 books. If you decide to read this book definitely read the first two as you may feel just as lost as I did if you don’t.  I typically like dark stories, and I felt I would have loved it if I read the first two books, which I may go and read just so I have a better understanding of this one.

 

Do you like dark fantasy books? Then read the series (starting with the first book The Subtle Beauty)

Pixie cup Review


pixiecup

pixiecup

First impressions:

  • Weird
  • Intimidating

What it’s suppose to do:

  • Replace Tampons
  • Be environmentally safe

What’s it made of?

  • FDA Approved Medical-Grade silicon

So I will admit It was a bit awkward using this. I was unsure if it would work and I really didn’t want to make a mess in my panties (worse nightmare). I womaned up though and used it. I won’t beat around the bush, this did work and it worked well. My problem was more of the insertion part, maybe it’s just me but I had a hard time getting it up there. Once it was there I couldn’t feel it and it was pretty comfortable. It’s a little gross pulling it out and seeing the mess that came from your inner most body but you could just not look.

Bottom line, get it especially if you can’t stand tampons or pads.

Sushi Gone Wild

First let me start off by saying that I love sushi rolls. I could pretty much eat them every dinner and today I want to share with you all my favorite sushi place.

It’s called Sushi Gone Wild and if you are ever in southern california in the south bay and you are looking for some sushi that wont break the bank then look no further. Also if you happen to come during your birthday well 1 cent saki doesn’t sound bad at all!

The place is a bit on the small side and it gets filled fairly quickly during peak dinner hours so definitely call ahead.

Philly and chicken teriyaki rools Dos Amigos and Vista Montana rolls baked alaska and salmon skin rolls

Looking at these pictures are seriously making my mouth water.

Where is your favorite sushi place?

Just an update

Hey!!!!

So I’ve recently had another trip to the hospital recently, which caused me once again to evaluate what I am doing with my life. I’ve just trying to make sure I am happy and there are certain areas in my life that I am very unhappy with so I am going to try to fix it.

This blog is one of them.

I’ve been very neglectful of this blog lately and I just really want to fix that. So today I took some time to take some pictures, and write up a couple of blog posts. I just really need to rearrange my schedule and make time to dedicate to this blog.

Another thing I’m really unhappy about is school. I haven’t really been doing well this semester and I really need to just figure things out with school.

The last thing I really need to fix is my health. It’s been declining and so I need to change things. I am only 29 and have a too many health problems. So I really need to get my act together.

So I need to make changes in my life, I need to think long and hard about how I want to live my life.

The Hunger by: Michael D. Young

Hey so it’s been a while since I have read a book and posted a review, but I am back in the game!

Today I bring to you, The Hunger by Michael D. Young

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Untitled

Synopsis

2

So this book was a bit hard to follow at first. Young seems to have this whole world mapped out yet seems to have left his readers in the dark. However the more I read the better I took to understanding the magically world that Young is trying to weave around us. Azil the first character you meet is seemed a bit vain at first mostly thinking of his fashion sense and a party he must attend that evening, things do start to get interesting when a assassin is sent to kill him, from there we are wrapped up in a Wizardly adventure.

To be honest I was a bit bored of the story at first, however it picked up it’s pace around the 6th chapter and I started to get more interested. My favorite character was Evelet, she was badass. I do recommend this book if you like fantasy adventures however keep reading past the first couple of chapters, it does get good!

Life in Color March

Hey!

It’s April! This Life in color will not be a monthly Instagram look (although all the pictures on here are all on my instagram Follow me HERE) No instead I will be sharing with you all  my Napa Valley Vacation.

But first, we cruised down the scenic route and visited Solvang where we had Danish Pancakes at Paula’s Pancake house.

2016-03-17 09.51.01 2016-03-17 09.10.20 2016-03-17 09.10.23

My husband had the blueberry, while I had apple pie. OMG they were so good. Definitely stop by if you ever find yourself in Solvang.

We then cruised up the 101, where there were alot of scenery however made the drive so much more longer than if we just took the 5.

We however came upon San Francisco where the Traffic was a plenty, and (to me at least) looked just like LA.

2016-03-17 14.47.50

But we finally arrived at our hotel in Napa, which was the Hilton Gardens. I was too exhausted from the drive to take a picture so sorry about that.

WE took the Napa Valley Wine Train on our first day, which was so fun and the food was great.

2016-03-18 11.23.14 2016-03-18 13.29.10 2016-03-18 12.06.03 2016-03-18 11.38.47 2016-03-18 11.23.41 2016-03-18 14.28.39

I suggest doing the train if your in Napa.

We also did some Wine Tours, but my Fave was Robert Mondavi Winery. The tour was very intimate as we were the last tour of the day and it was just my husband and I.

2016-03-18 15.39.56 2016-03-18 16.18.52 2016-03-18 16.35.48 2016-03-18 16.42.36 2016-03-18 16.47.25 2016-03-18 17.07.40

This was so fun, I just wish I took more pictures, but I was a bit too busy Drinking Wine and having fun.

Life Update/ Subscription Dilema

So sorry kittens but I got sick… Again!
Not only did I get sick but I also started school as well. Also since I’m being honest I didn’t get a chance to write or schedule the blog posts for this week.

So this week pretty much sucked, however I’m getting over my cold so it’s time I stopped dilly dallying and get back on with the blog posting.

Theres something I’ve been thinking about. I’ve been looking for some new subscriptions, however I’m not made of money so I am going to have to get right of at least one of the subscriptions I have now. The problem is… which one?

It’s between Ipsy and Birchbox at the moment and I honestly don’t want to get rid of either. BUT I think it’s time I try something new.

What subscriptions do you suggest?

Not sure if you noticed

So I’ve had a bit of trouble with the blog lately. looks like it went down for a couple of days. I had to reload the thing and well it resulted in me losing a couple weeks worth of posts.

I’m a bit upset but i’m trying not to let that bug me to much. I’m going to try to see if I can find out what posts went missing and repost them, I’m not going to take too long to do this as I don’t want to dwell in this issue too much.

xo,
