Why I Went Vegetarian (Short post)

 

Hello World Wide Web of beautiful people.

For three years now I have been slowly cutting meat out of my daily diet. Even though I still get tempted to have a McDonald hambrger, I can now claim the vegetarian title. Except on thanksgiving, that’s too much. 😉  In the past year I have been able to make vegetarian meals for my family and myself, which I’m extremely proud of . Since it’s summer time I’ve been craving a burger or a hotdog at cookouts. Fortunately thanks to the internet there is always a vegetarian option and alternative.

It’s been really hard to not eat meat in the past two years. Fortunately  my family has been really supportive, which makes meat less tempting .

I have noticed certain changes about myself. For instance, my senses of smell have become extremely sensitive to certain meats and unpleasant fragrances. It has gotten to the point where I am nauseous at the smell of bacon.

That’s not why I’m writing this. I guess I’m writing this for me. So I can finally put the reason why the change of diet into words.

My family’s health has become a concern after my dad became an Insanity instructor. We have cut a lot of processed food out of our lives. Because we would read articles about how “such ‘n such” could cause cancer. When we moved to Italy, I saw how clean the Italians ate and I wondered why is America so accepting of all this junky, greasy food that won’t spoil for weeks or maybe even months. Where as it for the Italian’s food would spoil in a couple a days.

People would ask me why.   Why are you switching?   Why are you giving up meat?   As if it’s inhuman.   This in fact is I didn’t give up meat.   I gave up the thought of greasy, fatty foods as normal, because it’s not.

I’m not saying I’m never going to eat at McDonalds ever again or having a slice of pizza. Seeing it’s 2016,  and the idea of having no time to make healthy meals has been sold to this generation and the next. At least I know now.

Hello World Wide Web of Beautiful people. Ahhhh June ,flowers, blazing freaking hot sun and obsessions. My obsessions of the month of June, I think I have a problem. Anyway……Let’s go.

Olay Fresh Effect

 

Olay Fresh Effects (bead me up) Exfoliating Cleanser. Price : $6.99-$7.99

I’ve always been self-conscience about my skin. Mainly because of the pimple puberty in late elementary school. I could not get my face cleared up. So lately I’ve been real concern about my facile care.  My skin has never felt so fresh, clean and clear. (this is not a promo, but I highly recommend ) Olay, I love you.

Marsk’s Mineral Eyeshadow. Shade: Mudcake  Price: $22.50

I found this shade through Ispy.com and it’s perfect. I took a profile quiz and matched my skin tone and everything. It’s a great shade for summer and winter and it’s defiantly apart of my everyday makeup routine. It’s a dark pink shimmer that apples easily and is a great pair with liquid eyeliner. As much as I need mascara,I need Marsk Mudcake eyeshadow.

Reign

Reign is the first one I bought last month and I’m impressed. When you open up the K lipstick it smells like heavenly chocolate. Applying the intense color is really simple and easy to pair with any outfit setting. No complaints.

Candy K and Literally

 

Candy K is a little to light for my skin tone so I pared it with the gloss:  Literally. Which Darken the candy pink shade a little bit and matches it with my tone of skin. I recently just bought the Dark of Knight kit and I’m really looking forward to receiving my Kylie Cosmetics black box. As soon as it comes in I will post a review.

Only complain, is the gloss. It’s really sticky and it gets all over my teeth. I only use it as a top coat to darken the Candy K. All in all I’m impressed.

Starbucks Travel Coffee Mug. Price: $16.00

Back in May my Family took trip to Hawaii.( Vlog Here). My dad had to stay an extra two-week for a business trip while we returned to Japan. When he got back he gave me this Starbucks travel mug that says Hawaii. Now I have an even bigger obsession with coffee. Thanks Dad!

 

 

Can Coffee: Boss. Price 130 Yen

DSCF0139

Speaking of coffee; here in Japan there are vending machines literally everywhere. My Favorite drink is the Boss can coffee. Usually in the winter the can coffees are hot. Since it’s summer and the Japanese know it’s common sense to not drink hot can beverages. They have them cool in the summer. It has a bitter sweetness to it and I buy one almost everyday for 130 yen, like a Boss.

Japanese Black Backpack. Price 3,000 Yen

Now, I know in a previous post I claimed I was in love with my owl printed backpack/purse thingamajig. Unfortunately about a week later it got caught in my seatbelt and the strap broke. So I had to by a new bag and I think I’m in love. This bag is a lifesaver,babysitter helper and my brothers secretary bag.(Theres a package of Pokémon cards in my bag now.)  I got this bag for 3,000 yen at the Aeon Mall in Yokosuka.

DSCF0154Coach Sneakers. Price: It was a gift, IDK.

These Coach shoes are the only pair of shoes I’ve worn in the past month. My aunt gave me her shoes since they where the wrong size. I wear them on planes, long care rides, walk and babysitting gigs. Basically there so comfortable I base my outfit off these shoes. Thanks Aunt April.
