Basically palm oil sucks.

When I first went vegan, I was very honest about my decision – I kind of like this planet a little too much to continue destroying it. I’ve embarked another journey, this one I had struggled with in the past but I am determined to come out of it a new woman. Insert the absolute evil: palm oil. Turns out palm oil not only is one of the main causes of deforestation but it’s also a disaster for endangered wildlife such as orangutans and tigers. Basically palm oil sucks. Unfortunately, it is also really cheap therefore used in nearly half…

Fat is just an adjective just like a middle finger is just a body part. I am fat and here’s my midle finger to society.

fat (adj.) (of a person or animal) having a large amount of excess flesh. (of an animal bred for food) made plump for slaughter. containing much fat. large in bulk or circumference. used ironically to express the belief that something is unlikely or does not exist. – From google dictionary I am fat. There I said it. Now get over it. It’s a fact. Point blank. I honestly don’t understand the avoidance of the word ‘fat’. I mean you’re either thin or fat, these are two antonyms just like big and small. It’s just an adjective. I have never naturally…

Mental wellbeing. Hi, I’ve started therapy.

There is a certain stigma that follows mental illness, especially where I come from. Having mental issues is seen as phony and shameful. I think in a lot of ways society fails those with mental disorders because of these stereotypes and the momentum of ‘just suck it up’. In truth, mental health is much broader than your ‘typical’, ‘average’, ‘popular’, ‘common’ or ‘more known of’ mental issues like depression, anxiety, eating disorders or more serious illnesses like narcissism, schizophrenia etc. Mental wellbeing is not a leprechaun at the end of the rainbow bridge that everyone without a mental disorder magically crosses….

Cruelty-free​ vs. vegan.

As a ‘seasoned’ vegan I should have my vegan makeup game down, but I don’t. So I am doing my research today and sharing it with the handful of readers I have. cruelty-free: (adj.) (of cosmetics or other commercial products) manufactured or developed by methods which do not involve cruelty to animals. A product that is vegan does not contain any animal ingredients or animal-derived ingredients. To many the term “vegan” also means that a product is free from animal testing as well. – Source What is the difference? When a cosmetics company takes a pledge to avoid unnecessarily product or ingredient testing…

Tickle my fancy: summer.

Book:  Chris Thompson’s ‘Six In A Row’. Amazon review: I can’t comment on the accuracy of the football player names or the game descriptions but as someone who’s not interested in football whatsoever I still very much enjoyed the book. It’s filled with humor and life lessons, it’s ironic and the main character is both frustrating and compelling. You’d think with the book focusing on real-life events it would be predictable, but the author has found a way to keep the readers on their toes. I definitely recommend!

PR vs Journalism: it’s time to stop this cat and mouse game.

PRs are not the cat chasing the mouse [journalist] for food or to be savage, the only reason they are chasing the mouse and the mouse is trying to escape is because both the cat and the mouse are morbidly obese and need to be moving more in order to lose weight so they are playing the chasing game to ultimately reach the same goal: publish content. How was that for a metaphor? “[PR is] conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses.” – source PR is not quality investigative journalism. Point blank. At its…

Tickle my fancy: spring.

On the old blogging platform I tried to do monthly favorites posts, but in all honesty, I am a boring person and throughout one month don’t accumulate enough ‘things’ to share with the world (and people don’t really care that much either) so I’ve decided to change the concept of these and post them whenever I feel like it. Because I can. So without further ado… Album: Khalid: American Dream Song: Nina Simone – Blackbird New musician discovery: Lostboycrow and Tom Walker Book: Born A Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah Movie: Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important…

Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Mental health awareness week #mhaw17.

I have long given up on not wearing shorts and skirts when my knees are bruised because then I would have to wear long trousers all day every day – I’m an extreme case of clumsy, gravity and I have a love/hate frenemy relationship. When I fall and there is blood or a bruise people acknowledge that as an injury, something causing pain. Some struggles can’t be seen by the naked eye, some struggles never really go beyond being in our heads. Today, I want to talk about those struggles. I believe the world’s population is divided into two groups (yes,…

Why the world needed Trump to happen.

We are very likely on the brink of World War III and it is scary. Okay, so I do not agree with Donald Trump nor am I a supporter of his. I still think he’s a racist, sexist and bigot pig. Actually no, pigs are rather nice and it’s a disgrace to pigs everywhere to compare the talking orange sack with hay hair to a pig. But you know what I mean. The headline is rather racy, isn’t it? But I promise this piece has both lighthearted humor and some facts. I’ve long said that one of the biggest issues…
