I went to the 41st San Dimas Festival of Arts show with my phone camera primed and ready for plenty of pictures Β (I don’t have an actual camera, but I am looking for one). I started to take pictures of some of my favorite pieces and then noticed some people eyeing me uncomfortably. I took that as a signal that I should probably ask for permission to take pictures.

I hurried back to the main desk to ask the people in charge if I could take pictures and to my intense disappointment the main guy said no. I tried to tell him that I’m a blogger looking to write a post about the festival and he still didn’t budge. Didn’t he understand that I had nothing but the best intentions!?Finally I respectfully put my phone away and just enjoyed the show. Continue reading

5 Stupid Things I Do Regularly

5 Stupid Things I Do

I am one of those people who trips over my own feet and slams into a wall. I’ve been known to walk into automatic doorsΒ and try to pull on handles that say push. Most people will trip going downstairs, but I manage to trip going up. I trip on flat surfaces, run into walls, have absolutely no sense of balance, and find it incredibly difficult to walk in heels. I don’t even know why I try, to be honest, because I probably look like a quack doing it. “Graceful” is not a word that describes me at all – not even remotely. Of course, being clumsy isn’t the only stupid thing I do, so let’s get into this post!

Here’s a list of the stupid things I do: Continue reading

Why I’m Not Vegan Anymore

Why I'm not vegan anymore

Hey everyone! So I don’t mean to offend any vegetarians or vegans reading this (I love you all! πŸ˜‰ haha), this isΒ just what happened for me. Keeping in mind that different people’s bodies process foods differently, for some reason my body couldn’t function properly on this diet.

When I was sixteen, I went through this phase where I thought it was “cool” to be vegetarian. So, as much as I loved meat, I decided to give it up. That lasted for about a year before I started to think that being vegan was cooler than being vegetarian, and I knew some vegan people, so I decided to ask them how to transition into a vegan lifestyle and I gave it a go. Little did I know that a lot of vegan foods are artificial and can be incredibly unhealthy.

A little while after I started on the vegan diet, I lost all of my energy. I was eating all the “right” foods, but I felt weak. I went through periods where I was either hungry all the time or I would completely lose my appetite altogether. It was horrible! And to top it off, it was expensive. Continue reading

A Healthy Remedy to Illness

Hey everyone! Before I get too far into this, Happy Easter!! πŸ™‚ I know I missed my usual Friday review, but I’ve been so busy that keeping up with the blogging content has been really stressful, so I’ve decided not to give myself a schedule for posts. To ease the stress and to be able to write about more relevant things, I’ll be posting a little less frequently — just until I can get back on my feet.

Let me start out by saying that I understand that healthy life choices can often be more expensive than less-healthy alternatives, especially when it comes to food. But in the long run, isn’t a healthy body, a strong immune system, and the overall peace of mind that comes with it worth it? I think so. That’s why I’ve decided to make some changes. Let me explain what brought this decision about. Continue reading
