If you rolled your eyes at the title, pursed your lips or didn’t care at all, don’t bother. This post is not an attempt to convert y’all, but merely my honest experience with veganism/plant-based lifestyle.
See, vegans and vegetarians have become this hilarious meme everyone will laugh at and nobody thinks twice about it. Hell, even I sometimes still laugh. And no, I will not go into the “misunderstood life of vegans”, but mocking some people that are actually doing a good thing for the planet and glamorizing the all-knowing bacon eater has been taken a step too far. Oh and to clarify, when I introduce myself I do not give handshakes while saying “I’m vegan, nice to meet you too”. Continue reading “To vegan or not to vegan?”
In terms of music, Kanye West was definitely the most noticeable and hilarious figure in February. From his tweet asking Zuckerberg for a small loan of $1 billion (a Trump reference indeed) to the Wiz Khalifa shade and to Rose Amber’s tweet that still rules the Internet, Kanye was unstoppable this month with his online presence: he just won’t stop tweeting.

And it does make sense, since this album is slightly gospel, like West warned us about.

These days I’ve been thinking about my writing and where I want to take it from here. Interestingly enough, the conclusion that I reached was that I do not know. I don’t know whether my main interest is beauty, music or film. I’m still figuring everything out, but what I do know is that this is my safe haven where I write about myself and shit that I like. So, I am hereby introducing the new series: The Music Den, where I’m talking about music I listened to that month: old and new.

If you haven’t got consumed already by the nerve-racking Christmas fever, don’t worry, there is still time for you to stress over gifts and plans. Makeup however, tends to brighten up my day; so go ahead and slap some confidence and glitter on your face and try not to get caught up in the materialistic side of the holidays.
I did think about not doing the classic gold eye – red lip but who was I kidding? What says Christmas better than this? Nothing, yeah, I know.

Autumn, fall, the rain season – call it what you want, but when autumn starts kicking in you know you can’t help but succumb to the urge of snuggling in bed with tea, a book or a good TV show. But hey, I don’t blame you, it’s the weather’s fault (also school is in full swing and procrastination comes back, but that is totally not the problem). Continue reading “Snuggly Autumn: Favourites”
Here it is, another makeup look! Quite colourful, summery and warm, but still appropriate for both day and night wear. With a darker lipstick, you could go to town with this and look oh so ravishing.
