Take five XXV


Sweet shoe at Oberweis.


I had this bedroom mural (designed by myself) for about ten years. Now it's gone as it was time for a change. I've painted all my walls white. 


Two new Diptyque candles: Violette and Musc.


The latest macaron box from Ladurée.

I attended a presentation by Dr. Melanie Joy: Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows. I was shocked when I saw how animals are bred and mistreated only to be killed and converted into food. It put me off eating meat for good. www.carnism.org

  12. I was a vegetarian because of how we treat animals before killing them... But I love meat, I love the taste, so I started eating meat again but I feel so guilty every time. But to be honest, I eat meat less than once a month and probably that's the reason...

    On the lighter note, I love your mural! I get that after 10 years it's time for a change, but it was really cool.:)

  27. that shoe is so pretty!

    I was wondering if you are a vegetarian. I am ever since I was little because I Loved animals and could never understand why people ate them. Now that I am older I still don't eat meat because I hate the way they treat those poor animals!

  28. Your shoe is pretty in pink. Wow, you are brave to let go of the mural on your wall, at least you have enjoyed it for several years. The Laduree boxes are always so pretty and their goodies inside are delicious. Those Diptyque candles must smell so good, enjoy!

  40. great title of the presentation, it is so true and i guess we can all stop eating meat to stop animal abuse but for myself i've tried unsuccesfully but since I am aware of the abuse, I have considerably reduced my intake although I am still a long way there...Love the shoe-chocolate

  57. I have seen a video about animal rights and it showed how some people mistreat the animals and then some killed and processed. I was hurt watching it. I think it was the reason why I eat less meat until now.
