kombucha - love this stuff (not just this brand, but their ginger one is reaaally good)

Laura Miller is one those people  I know little about but I would love to meet.. I love what she wrote about her dog in her book, and about social anxiety, and how truthful and open she is. She's herself and she's trying to give people some nice recipes that she makes to make herself feel better, in the hopes that they might help others too.

HELENA ADENTRO (COLOMBIA)

Helena Adentro review 1
Helena Adentro review 2

Helena Adentro

Back in October 2015, I surprised my mom with a visit to Colombia for her birthday. I stayed the whole month! My friend Kady came for two weeks as well, and we traveled a bit to show her some other parts of our beautiful country. We went to the Quindio and learned how coffee goes from plant to your cup. Not too far from where we were staying was a charming little town called Filandia, and there was the most random amazing restaurant. 

It just looked completely out of place, because the town was so small and traditional and empty, and the restaurant was big, lively, artistic and so so good.

There was cool art and weird things everywhere and on every wall. If anything, you couldn't get bored of this place! There was always something to look at.

The people there were so nice and the food and drinks were excellent. They had an outside area that was for parties which looked amazing. We went twice and it was so worth it. I realize not many people live near Filandia, in the Quindio, so it's a bit of a random review but Colombia is the most wonderful place on earth, and if you decide to go there, then, hey, why not come here?

HI, I'M SIMONE!

THIS IS SIMONE


This past November my housemates told me I should get a puppy. For some reason, I decided to look online. This actually isn't that strange because I've looked at websites for adoption in the past "just for fun" and this didn't feel that different. I even looked on Facebook of all places. But what would you know, I came upon a photo of three adorable puppies with a caption that said "paris region" and included a phone number. What the hell, I thought. I messaged him that night, sure that the puppies would be adopted by then or that it was a fake (oh yes, I messaged two other people who turned out to be scammers, the world is creepy) but I got a message not an hour later with info on the puppies and photos of each one. We exchanged messages and set a time the next day to go meet the pups. However he was also traveling a bit so he wanted to make sure I would actually leave with one. I got cold feet that first day and asked for a few more days to think about it. We met on Sunday. That Sunday I got a puppy.

Her name is Simone. We thought of that name on the train ride back home, I didn't go there with any ideas in mind. She is a wonderful, beautiful, kind, playful, smart puppy. She is also a ton of work. Especially the first few months. She peed everywhere. Unfortunately she still has an accident here and there (she's five months old now) and when it happens I get quite angry but it's not her fault, she is still learning. She has learned so much already!!! You can check my Instagram to see some of the videos of her. She's amazing.
