See You Later Diesel!

This past Wednesday in my arms I said my last see you later to Mr D, aka Diesel. My cheeky, happy go lucky ray of sunshine. He hadn’t been well for a few years, yet all his illnesses were overshadowed by Angelous’s. I think he had the same tummy issues as Angelous however due to his age when realised the vet advised against a biopsy. The last few months the signs were there, I didn’t see or didn’t want to see them. The last week and a bit he stopped wanting to eat then he withdrew from life, which hurt as he loved life.

He had 2 speeds. All out or fast asleep! Anything new that came into the house had to be inspected. He loved playing, loved annoying his bother who he adored. You could tell by how he followed him around. They had so many chases and play fights, never drawing blood. He loved hugs, had a meow just for a hug. He talked so much! Let me know loudly when it was breakfast or dinner time, he answered me back, he chirped, meurred, purred when it was hug time. For someone so tiny his headbutts could knock you off balance. If he didn’t like something he let you know loudly! He hated car journeys above 95kmph. He started singing in protest Continue reading “See You Later Diesel!”

Beauty Finds: The Cleansing Trio

Today I’m sharing my current go to cleansing products. All are cruelty free, vegan and natural ingredients!

My love for Korean skincare products might be waning. Gasp! There are some Aussie products that have caught my eye that I might prefer. However when it comes to cleansing, removing makeup, making my face feel clean Korean products win. All products reviewed are cruelty free, contain no nasty ingredients, vegan, mostly palm oil free as I prefer orangutans (1 ingredient is a derivative). While my skin type is combination to oily all products are aimed for all skin types. It took a few frogs over the past 1.5 years to find this trio. And yes I know. All plastic packaging while I’m wanting to reduce my plastic. Skincare and beauty are one of the areas I’m finding this hardest.

When it comes to cleansing my face, I follow the double cleansing routine. Firstly an oil cleanser to remove excess sebum, sunscreen, silicones and oil based makeup makeup followed by a foam cleanser Continue reading “Beauty Finds: The Cleansing Trio”

Chocolates Solé Chocolate Puro Dark Chocolate República Dominicana Sweetended With Agave

Another bio shop find! This chocolate is perfect if you want processed sugar free chocolate. Instead of cane sugar is sweetened with agave! It’s a little expensive about €2.30 for however it’s really quite nice without leaving a nasty after taste which some chocolate containing sugar can. It also hasn’t got the bitter taste of dark chocolate either. Ingredients are minimal with other flavours including chilli, cinnamon, olive oil, raspberries, ginger among so many more flavours Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

November Catch Up

November without sounding clique flew by!

We took a trip at the beginning of the month to a local castle, Castell de Burriac. Cutting it fine, no surprise we got there 30 minutes before sunset. It’s a few towns up and worth the motorbike ride. From the carpark it’s about a 3km steep hike. The vistas at the top are amazing even at dusk. The cars looked liked ants making me think about the logistics of supply and demand to all the people in the cars: food etc. It’s mind blowing how many resources humans use. All but the tower has free access. Being on the grounds also got me thinking of the Continue reading “November Catch Up”

Happy Thanksgiving to my USA readers!

I can’t believe we’re in the last month of 2019! I know you’ve probably heard that a 100 times already, apologies.

It’s a short one however please share in the comments below things that have been making you smile or caught your eye this week.

November’s waning Frost Moon at Dawn

Once a year I’m knocked out for 24hrs with a bug of some sort. Once a year my body’s nope, shut down mode and I’m out of it. I thought I got away with it this year as my last KO was February last year. I don’t know what happened. Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”
